Throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, anti-government extremists were among federal law enforcement’s top concerns before everything changed on Sept. 11, 2001. Yet regardless of what law enforcement was focusing on after the terror attacks, there was a growing threat in Kalispell as David Burgert stockpiled weapons and turned a fledgling militia into an army to deliver revenge. And just as his militia appeared to be ramping up to a fight, an unexpected informant emerged to send David Burgert on the run.

In episode 4 of Project 7, reporters Justin Franz and Andy Viano look at how the 9/11 terror attacks impacted David Burgert and what happened when he went on the lam in an effort to avoid the law.
