Right-wing movement leader James "Bo" Gritz Friday gathered volunteers who will try to persuade clinic bombing suspect Eric Rudolph to give up.

In an interview on NBC's "Today" show, the former Green Beret colonel said he is sending volunteers into the dense Southern Appalachian forests to try to contact Rudolph, assure him that the $1 million reward for his capture would go to Rudolph's mother and offer "a safe conduct pass."Gritz is a leader of the so-called patriot movement, which rails against a U.N.-led "New World Order" and accuses the government of corruption and violence.

He helped negotiate an end to the FBI siege at Ruby Ridge, Idaho, in 1992.
