Scott interviews Epoch Times reporter Ken Silva about two articles he recently published that explore PATCON, an undercover FBI operation that began in the 1990s and targeted right-wing groups. The operation is still shrouded in mystery, but details have surfaced over the years. Scott and Silva talk about why PATCON is still making news today and discuss the possible ties with the 1995 bombing in Oklahoma City.
