—NPR's Mark Roberts previews the federal trial of the Montana Freemen, an anti-government group, whose members are charged with bank fraud, theft, and threatening public officials. Jury selection begins today in Billings for the trial of 14 members of the Freemen. In 1996, the F-B-I surrounded their farm outside Jordan, Montana, and for 81 days, they refused to surrender.
