While the cable nets fixate on the Michael Jackson trial, right-wing terrorism spreads across the land, virtually unnoticed.
CHICAGO, March 8 - A lawyer for Matthew Hale, the white supremacist convicted last year of plotting to kill a federal judge whose husband and mother were slain last week, said on Tuesday that Mr. Hale's mother called him a few months ago and asked him to pass on an encoded message to one of Mr. Hale's supporters.
"She said she didn't know what the message meant, but she was going to read it to me verbatim because Matt made her write it down when she visited him," the lawyer, Glenn Greenwald, said in an interview. "It was two or three sentences that were very cryptic and impossible to understand in terms of what they were intended to convey."
Mr. Greenwald, who has represented Mr. Hale and his organization in several civil cases and said he did not believe that his client had anything to do with the recent killings, said he told federal agents last week about the conversation with Mr. Hale's mother, Evelyn Hutcheson. Ms. Hutcheson previously said that agents investigating the killings peppered her with questions about encoded messages, which she denounced as "the dumbest thing I've ever heard of."
Ms. Hutcheson, in an interview Monday, said that her message to Mr. Greenwald was about someone her son thought should testify at his April 6 sentencing, and that any coding was only to keep the federal monitors of their conversations from figuring out his legal strategy.
This woman is lying through her teeth, and is abetting a convicted criminal/terrorist. It's time to throw her lily-white ass in jail too.
