To me this kinda stuff seems like could be trying to distract from Benghazi hearings.

Bingo!
There will be an event within the next two weeks, to wipe Benghazi off all front pages - the question is how many people will die to accomplish this?

The agency said the alleged terror plot was discovered through analysis of intelligence gathered by local, state and federal authorities.

I'll be interested in seeing if they get more specific. "Good enough to convince a judge to give them a search warrant" is no longer good enough for me.

Trust they will roll up an ongoing investigation every week or so now, regardless what the strength of the case may be. CYA time.

"could be trying to distract from Benghazi hearings."

The timing is suspicious.

They could also just be trying to look like they are on top of terrorism after their recent EPIC FAIL with the Boston bombing.

I'm giving the Feds the benefit of the doubt. The possession of arms does not in itself indicate a terrorist plot. Otherwise, Duck Dynasty would be considered terrorists.

They've not shown their evidence of why they believe this guy was planning something, but something must have triggered them. Hopefully it wasn't just an overly suspicious neighbor.

As kids we used to but aerosol cans in fires and shoot them. Very dangerous and stupid and fun. Today we would be accused of setting off bombs.

Two bombs blow up crowds of spectators at the Boston marathon; a crazed gunman shoots dozens of soldiers at ft Hood while shouting Alluhu Akbar - we don't know if it was terrorism, lets not jump to conclusions.

A hillbilly collects guns and makes pipe bombs in his trailer out in the sticks, its terrorism!

Well he is a felon with guns! But they don’t say why he was a threat. I think it was because he was only 24 years old, Liberal and an anarchist type, possessing Molotov cocktails, suspected pipe bombs and several firearms.

Glad the FBI nipped this one in the bud. I know there was some criticism by some against the Bureau for failing to detect the Boston Marathon bombing but my heart goes out to these guys who work so hard to protect our country whether going after terrorists, mobsters or crooked officials. This is one government agency I do find generally competent and clean although of course there are exceptions and mistakes from time to time as in any human institution.

First of all, you simply can’t believe anything the government or it’s propaganda arm (the media) reports or suggests. This guy may have been preparing to go after someone for killing his dog or something. Or, the molotov cocktails could have been for eradicating wasp nests, and the explosives for removing stumps.

The FBI caught a felon burglar with a gun who has had his 2nd Ammendment right revoked through due process after the commision of a felony.

The rest of the story is manufactured by the AP.

He was only charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Not terrorism. Not posession of bombs or bomb components.

And what exactly is a “suspected pipe bomb”? Threaded metal pipe laying outside? And who makes up molotov cocktails ahead of time? Could it be that he simply had some empty bottles laying around?

Members of militia group suing law enforcement (Hutaree)

Funny thing is that the leader of the Hutaree has since been elected constable/code enforcer of his hometown. Seems kinda odd to me that the feds and media claimed everyone in the area was fearful of them only to have those very people turn around and elect the leader.
