A Fort Stewart soldier pleaded guilty Monday morning in connection with the death of a former soldier and his girlfriend.
Michael Burnett was one of four men arrested in December in connection for the slayings Michael Rourke and Tiffany York. Burnett agreed to testify against three other men, who he said carried out the murders.
Burnett pleaded guilty to two counts of manslaughter and other charges. Four other defendants also face charges in the case including Isaac Aguigui, Anthony Peden, Christopher Salmon and Heather Salmon, according to the District Attorney of the Atlantic Judicial Circuit Tom Durden.
As part of that plea bargain, Burnett described the group's motive in the case, which involved a domestic terrorism plot among a small group of current and former soldiers. He said slayings were part of a militia group looking to overthrow the government.
Burnett said the group called itself FEAR and planned to join other militia groups in overthrowing the federal government. Prosecutors said Burnett and other group members detailed plans to blow up the fountain in Savannah's Forsyth Park, take over Fort Stewart, assassinate several local officials and target several economic targets as well.

Yep; definitely getting weirder.
(What McDonald's ... Chik Fill A ?)
This makes sense?
My tin foil is on firmly for THIS one.
Killing a man and his girlfriend doesn’t have a lot to do with overthrowing the government. But it might have to do with the nature of a plea bargain. A real newspaper needs to take a long hard look at this...
Smells like another ‘Fast & Furious’ maskirovka intended to scare us into surrendering our rights.
“Getting weird out there...”
Obama’s plan going as scheduled!
One is too fat, and the other, too weak, to be infantry-related. They look like a couple of rear-echelon types (examples: clerks, service/supply/maintenance). Photos posted in earlier thread.
Any of the CWII fanboys that think there’s no way the US military would fire on US civilians at the direction of the Kenyan need to look at this weirdness.
Any sympathy here for this guy? Nope...right? They didn’t even need to resort to “child molester” or “polygamist.”
He’s branded as an enemy, and suddenly everyone nods their head, “yup, must be enemy!”
There’s not going to be any cavalry coming to the glorious rescue, there’ll be no Yamamoto quotes about the massive American civilian army. There’ll just be millions of serial takedowns of “crazies.” And the military will help keep discipline and order throughout the simmering crisis....long until after it’s way too late.
The Feds have all the time they need to boil ALL the frogs!
As the bull said in th joke, “...No, son. Let’s WALK down and (have our way) with -ALL- those cows.”
Really? How bout if the man and his girlfriend had threatened to tell the government about a plan to overthrow the government?
If the article is accurate, the New American Black Panther Party has the better chance for pulling off their revolution, 'cause they already have an in with the Department of Justice.
Lefties are running with this as an “Obama assassination plot” but there is zero evidence of this do far.
Good grief! That’s the last thing we need — some wackos supplying the left with another worthless martyr to deify...
Unless you parse it the other way: Obama's plot to assassinate. Remember the stories about targeting US citizens not actually on the field of battle who are suspected to have terrorist links?
It's silly. It's silly on the same level as liberals thinking Republicans could put millions of blacks 'back in chains'. And there's a hell of a lot more Republicans than members of fringe groups - left and right combined.
Think about it. Even black people thought Biden was off his rocker. And we're millions strong.
Like I said, a major newspaper - even one that hates conservatives - needs to look into this and make an honest assessment.
The Southern Poverty Law Center ( is that a Communist Front organization? They sure act like one...) tried to do that with it's 'Vast Right Wing Conspiracy' bullsh*t. They made the Clinton's the laughing stock of the nation. Liberals thinking we had decoder rings and black helicopters. But they're back - ready to launch the same attacks. We need to develop ways to mock them... because their breathless concern - that appears to boil down to four people in nuts.
