Klansmen operating in Parkesburg, PA were arrested and later convicted:
"Residents may not have noticed them, but they were here when they set off pipe bombs, test-fired machine guns and taught bomb-making classes.
They blended right in
‘They look like us. They sound like us. They are us,’ said Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas P. Hogan Jr., assigned to coordinate investigations and prosecute cases with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force.
Before international terrorists took the spotlight, there were men like Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, a domestic terrorist executed by lethal injection on June 11, 2001, for the attack that killed 168 people and wounded hundreds more
‘To effectively combat terrorism, whether international or domestic, what you need are human sources -- spies, informants,’ explained Hogan. ‘They need to penetrate into the terrorist organization on a long-term basis.’
Obtaining such inside information was critical in convicting David Wayne Hull -- a self-declared Imperial Wizard of the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan who operated a "cell" in western Chester County -- of a number of weapons charges, witness tampering and a charge of instructing others how to use a pipe bomb in furtherance of a federal crime.”
