Georgia Militia Men Charged With Domestic Terrorism, GOP Says Obama Is 'Soft' On Terror (Video)

| by Michael Allen

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) appeared on Fox News this week where he tried to link the terrorist attack in Paris, France, to President Obama's policies.

Graham told Fox News host Martha MacCallum that President Obama thought "strength was offensive" and added, "He doesn't want to be bold because he may offend somebody" (video below).

Graham failed to mention the numerous drone attacks ordered by President Obama over six years against suspected terrorists in seven Muslim countries, noted RT.com.

"Our intelligence-gathering abilities have been compromised," Graham said, reports CrooksandLiars.com. "The only way you can stop these attacks, Martha, is to find out about them before they occur. We’re reducing our military spending at a time when we need it the most. These policies driven by President Obama of being soft and weak and indecisive are coming home to haunt us.”

However, Graham didn't mention a purported domestic terrorist attack that was thwarted in Georgia in 2014. Three men, all members of a militia, were arrested for allegedly conspiring to get and use weapons of mass destruction.

Terry Peace, Brian Cannon and Cory Williamson pleaded not guilty on Monday to domestic terrorism charges and conspiring to defraud the government, noted NorthwestGeorgiaNews.com.

Peace, Cannon and Williamson were allegedly part of online chats between Jan. 23, 2014, and Feb. 15, 2014, which were being monitored by the U.S. government. The men reportedly discussed using guerilla war tactics against a police station and government agencies in Atlanta.

According to the indictment, the men allegedly tried to “recruit other individuals to join them and to carry out similar operations" in other states against “road blocks, TSA checkpoints, sheriffs/police conducting operations outside the Constitution."

Peace, Cannon and Williamson allegedly traveled to Tennessee and met with an undercover FBI source about obtaining explosive devices. The unidentified source reportedly gave the men some inert explosives in Cartersville, Georgia, on Feb. 15, 2014. The men were arrested that day and originally arraigned in March of 2014.

However, this new indictment includes the weapons of mass destruction charge.
