Ku Klux Klan Sect Leader Sentenced for Pipe Bomb - Terrorist Laws Applied

NY Times Report: Klan Sect Leader Sentenced for Pipe Bomb

Excerpt: PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The leader of a Ku Klux Klan splinter group was sentenced to 12 years in prison Friday in what prosecutors said was the nation's first conviction under a new anti-terror law.

David Wayne Hull, 42, was convicted of teaching a government informant posing as an anti-abortion activist how to use a pipe bomb at a November 2002 white supremacist gathering on Hull's property south of Pittsburgh.

Federal prosecutors said Hull also gave the informant parts to make a bomb.

The 2002 anti-terror statute bans instructing others how to use pipe bombs or other dangerous weapons to commit a crime. It carries a maximum 20-year prison sentence.

Hull testified at his May trial that he suspected the informant might be working for the government so he didn't give him a fuse along with the other bomb parts.

Hull's group, the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, had a Web site showing his picture and address, but it was taken down after he was indicted. Authorities believe the group is now defunct.

Hard Observation: Who would have thought that the new Terrorist Laws would be applied in this form.

What law would have been applied against this Bomb Instructor had these New Terrorist Laws never been made law? I am sure he would have faced some sort of action from the court system.

I wonder how all of the Evangelical Leaders and their followers who support this 'New America', under the 'Bush Administration' are taking this news? They believe Abortion is evil, work of the devil, etc. And now the New Terror Laws are being used like this, hmmm, something tells me there are a lot of crusaders of the 'New America' out there that are feeling a little bit confused, or maybe, feeling double crossed?

What do you Guys Think?
