Richard Guthrie's BATF Files
INTELFILES has obtained more than 90 pages of documents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms concerning Richard Guthrie, a white supremacist bank robber who may have been linked to the Oklahoma City bombing.
The files, linked below in PDF format, detail the ATF's investigation into the so-called Midwest Bank Robbers, aka the Aryan Republican Army.
More information on Guthrie -- and documents for the use of researchers -- can be found in the previous INTELWIRE article "The Trentadue Files."
A comprehensive summary of the case can be found in In Bad Company, a 2001 book by criminology professor Mark S. Hamm.
Please cite INTELWIRE if reporting from these documents.
INTELWIRE has several pending FOIA requests related to terrorist activities on U.S. soil. The FBI and other U.S. agencies have chosen to reject INTELWIRE's fee waiver requests. Some of these requests run into several hundred dollars. Donations to offset the cost of these efforts are appreciated.
The full documents are listed below. All redactions were made by the ATF and may be the subject of future appeals. The contents of these documents include ATF reports on the bank robberies themselves, movements of the gang and communication with the FBI regarding the suspects, as well as news clippings related to the stories. A detailed index is being prepared and will be posted on INTELWIRE in early 2006.
Views expressed on INTELWIRE are those of the author alone.

Their smart, granular analysis is a bracing antidote to both facile dismissals and wild exaggerations... a nuanced and readable account of the ideological and organizational origins of the group." -- Washington Post
