Eccoterrorists Indicted

Michelle Malkin has a synopsis on today’s indictment of 11 people associated with the Earth Liberation Front and Animal Liberation Front. Eight are in custody but three are still at large and believed to be outside the United States. These individuals used improvised incendiary devices to target U.S. Forest Service ranger stations, U.S. Bureau of Land Management wild horse facilities, lumber companies, meat processing companies, a ski area and a power line. The cost of the arson attack upon the horse facility alone is over $1 million. To date attacks by ELF and/or ALF have resulted in no direct loss in human life. That doesn’t make these groups any less dangerous. They are domestic terrorist—no less and certainly no more—and need to be treated as that.
