The Southern Poverty Law Center has released a new report detailing an 813 percent rise in anti-government "Patriot" groups across America.
The SPLC has sent a letter to U.S. Attorney Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano warning them about the potential for domestic terrorism from these groups. They also urge the adminstration to create a task force to assess the "federal resources devoted to the threat."
