On Monday, federal agents including four SWAT teams converged on a house outside of Raleigh, North Carolina. They arrested Daniel Boyd, his two grown sons and four other young men allegedly being instructed in military techniques. The grand jury indicted Mr. Boyd on charges evolving from an apparent desire to go overseas and kill terrorists. Mr. Boyd, who had traveled to both Pakistan and Afghanistan for military-style training, had fought against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. The federal indictment suggests the motive for the training was religious extremism and that Mr. Boyd was prepared to die as a martyr for his beliefs.
