"Patriot" Profiles

Last Updated, September 4, 1997

This section of the Militia Watchdog contains in-depth reports on various groups or persons in the so-called "patriot" movement. Generally speaking, they are considerably longer than most news articles you might find, and attempt to give comprehensive portraits of the groups or events they describe. These examples of "contemporary history" are some of the most important offerings of the Watchdog. All the articles within are by Mark Pitcavage.
