Two men have pleaded guilty to conspiring to buy weapons illegally for what federal agents describe as a terrorist plot by a fringe militia group. The F.B.I. recorded conversations in which the men, Frederick Thomas, 73, and Dan Roberts, 67, discussed plans to detonate explosives and shoot government workers in Atlanta and other cities, the federal authorities say. The men entered their pleas on Tuesday in United States District Court in Gainesville, Ga.; they face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
