The Firsthand Account of a Husband-Wife Team Working for the FBI and Living in Deepest Cover With the Montana Freemen
Hear a firsthand account of the life under cover within the violence-prone Montana Freemen organization.
In 1995, Dale and Connie Jakes went undercover for the FBI, infiltrating the Montana mountains and discovering a major center of American terrorism. The Jakes exposed vital information that showed the government how widespread, well-organized, and dangerous militia groups have become. The Freeman were eventually arrested after an 81-day standoff with the FBI - the longest in U.S. law-enforcement history.
This disturbing memoir is also a subtly scathing commentary on the FBI and gives a revealing view of the extreme risks involved and courage demanded by undercover work of this type.
A couple of normal patriots, agree to go undercover for the FBI against the Freemen, a heavily armed group of radical, anti-government revolutionaries. Their very good work is repaid with a lack of financial and security support.
