Montana's Militia Movement After Sept. 11

In the 1990s, the militia movement attracted thousands of followers, spurred on by federal law enforcement blunders at Ruby Ridge and Waco. But after Timothy McVeigh -- who identified with the militia movement -- bombed the federal building in Oklahoma City, the movement began to decline. Robert Siegel travels to Montana to take the pulse of the militia movement after Sept. 11.
