A KKK member has plead guilty to domestic terrorism after authorities discovered him trying to make a weapon of mass destruction. Apparently the man was trying to persuade Jewish businessmen to invest in the weapon that, he said, was going to be used on Muslims.
Eric Feight has admitted his intentions were to build what the media is calling an, “anti-Muslim X-ray cannon.” Feight was short on cash though and decided he would try and use OPM (other people’s money) in order to finance his operations.
He quickly targeted Jewish businessmen and asked them if they would be interested in helping to finance a war on the enemy’s of Israel. When he called the Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York asking for a handout to develop such a weapon that he would use to target mosques, the organization promptly called police.
Authorities quickly put together a sting operation where two FBI agents would play the parts of fellow KKK members. During a conversation between the FBI agents and Feight, he, “described to the [undercover FBI agents] his radiation emitting device, his remote initiation device, mobilizing the radiation device and discussed operation security concerns.”
Feight went deeper into the specifics and told undercover agents that he, “planned to create a mobile, remotely operated, radiation-emitting device capable of killing people silently from a distance with lethal doses of ionizing radiation.”
According to the indictment, “Crawford’s intended targets were Muslims, Muslim-related organizations and persons Crawford believed were contributing to the demise of the United States.”
Apparently back in June, “Crawford again solicited money to finance his scheme (primarily to fund the purchase or acquisition of an industrial strength x-ray system).” It seems that Feight wanted to harvest the radioactive material from x-ray machines in order to complete his device(s).
Although I appreciate his intentions, Obama has assured us on several occasions that we are not at war with Islam. I guess some people just need to get a clue.
According to The Libertarian Republic, “Feight and his co-conspirator Scott Crawford were charged with attempting to produce and use a radiological dispersal device, conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction, and distributing information relating to weapons of mass destruction.”
Feight now faces up to 15 years in federal prison.
