Posted on 06/19/2013 10:15:08 PM PDT by GraceG
A New York man who allegedly wanted to kill President Obama and apparently blamed him for the recent Boston bombings has been arrested for trying to build and detonate a weapon of mass destruction.
Glendon Scott Crawford, 49, of Galway, N.Y., spent months designing and constructing an X-ray system that would emit deadly amounts of radiation and could be detonated remotely, according to the FBI. Crawford recruited Eric J. Feight, 54, of Hudson, N.Y, to join in the plot, and both were arrested Tuesday, the FBI said.
Crawford and Feight allegedly planned to hide their weapon in a truck and FBI experts said it would have been "functional" and "lethal."
According to the FBI, Crawford cited "a political figure" and a Muslim organization as "potential targets." Sources familiar with the investigation identified the "political figure" as Obama.

So apparently they actually exist...
If I built one it would be only to knock UFOs out of the sky, perhaps the occasional Unmanned Spy Drone too...
But the FBI couldn’t stop the Boston bombers, right?
The FBI is REAL good at tracking down anyone who ISN’T moslem.
Oh, now ABS is picking ridiculous this up.
Let’s see, a member of the KKK who was trying to make deals with Jewish Synagogues to get them to buy an exotic Radiation Ray gun which was not operational and fopr which he had no radiation supply.
Oh, and of course, how could I forget, he was also a Tea Party member...which is really the whole point of the government’s story and the MSM parroting it.
You can’t make this Bravo Sierra up...unless of course you are the Obama administration and you have a bunch of lemming, brain-adled followers.
AMERICA AT THE CROSSORADS OF HISTOPRY
I wonder if Elijah Muhammad has one of these on board his mother ship hovering above the earth?
I bought the x-ray glasses out of the back of a comic book. They didn’t work.
Sounds like an EMP device.
And they call us conspiracy nuts.
Are these tea party terrorists making X-ray Weapons? Did they catch them by their texts?
That kinda messes with the media narrative that “Tea Party Terrorists” are so dumb it is a wonder they can tie their own shoe laces....
How did they get caught? Someone turn them in? I don’t see how any surveillance or routine techniques would have tipped the FBI with just two men involved. They would have flown under the radar easily. Something here is amiss.
The dental hygienist assures you the X-rays are perfectly safe, but then she always leaves the room.
Concerned for her own precious bodily fluids, yes, that’s it.
Can't be, the TEA Party is anti-science, remember?
How did they get caught? Someone turn them in? I dont see how any surveillance or routine techniques would have tipped the FBI with just two men involved. They would have flown under the radar easily. Something here is amiss.
Probably how the FBI does all this sorta thing, they start supplying the perp with non functional components...
Maybe I just got a bad pair.
ONCE AGAIN, another sting op by the FBI, which does not seem to catch any terrorists until they blow things up, so they have to manufacture them.
Can someone post the plans online? I want to build one with my 3d printer. ;)
IIRC the KKK group contacted the FBI and told them about the plan. The FBI planted a couple of agents in the KKK group and they tracked the perp.
Our station is to absorb incredible assault on our Christian values in the name of tolerance and diversity.
We will experience fullscale degradation.
When we finally stand up, we will be enemies of the state...
The glasses got run over by an RV.
My friends were devastated.
I’m having a really hard time believing this story. What a bunch of BS
Didn’t they tell you “you’ll go blind” ?
Don’t feel bad. When I was much younger, my brother dared me to feed a machine that sold things in a gas station restroom.
I decided on a ‘Pussy Stretcher’ and dropped my precious quarter in the maw of this heartless device.
I turned the knob and a small box was deposited, about matchbox size, and in it was: a little, flat paper cat reclining on a paper stretcher.
As I recall, the X-ray glasses ad showed a youngster using the glasses, which were demonstrating a sort of hypnotic, ‘Twilight Zone’ effect in the lenses, and allowed the excited young fellow to see the outline of a fetching lady through her dress.
After my experience, I became somewhat jaded, passed on the glasses and got a ‘joy buzzer’ instead.
I hope you found this amusing.
Well this can not be true everyone loves O who would want to fry him like an ant under a magnifying glass?
Lame azz prosecution
The KKK still fields groups? That contact the FBI? Who makes up this sh¡t?
Over the next several months, Crawford conducted extensive research for the design, at times expressing frustration over the slow pace of the team's progress, the FBI affidavit indicated. Ultimately, with help from the undercover agents
Officials from the KKK?
The government agents were helping him build the ray gun?
Well the article says, "High-ranking officials in the KKK informed the FBI of the super secret x-raygun which is similar to what the ghost busters used"
This story has something for everyone.
Is this a photo of the suspect and the two FBI agents testing the secret x-ray weapon?
Officials from the KKK?
The government agents were helping him build the ray gun?
Pretty sure the government actually runs the Kook Klucking Klan these days....
That is why they support abortion in minority communities so much these days...
They’re trolling their files, or rather their recorded files of a huge chunk of America, for “right wing threats,” and this is what they can come up with? LOL.
That one is easy to explain. The patients get a does every six months or every year. The tech? They could get exposed several times a day. Of course they have to leave the room.
LOL Talk about trying to cover their azzes! LOL We believe you, Mister FBI man! Don’t spy on me!
Once again we have a liberal posing as a teapartier
X-Ray dosage is considered to be cumulative over a lifetime. The mathematical model used assumes that your chance of contracting cancer from any single exposure is the same, regardless of prior dosages. It’s sort of like running a red light a 3:00 AM without looking. The more often you do it, the more likely you are to “lose”. The diagnostic benefits of X-Rays are considered to be worth the relatively remote risks. The patient has to take the risk, for the procedure to be effective, the technician shouldn’t.
The agent's affidavit indicates that Crawford then telephoned another Jewish organization in Albany and made a similar offer. Luckily, Crawford's visit to the synagogue raised eyebrows, and an unidentified individual later contacted police.
Rabbi Matthew Cutler of the Congregation Gates of Heaven in Schenectady told the Times Union that a "strange man" came to their synagogue in April of 2012, and discussed a mysterious device he was developing that would protect the Jewish people.
"They had a hard time getting rid of him," Cutler said. "He had this device, this plan on what to do." ...
Once members of the synagogue had contacted law enforcement, the Joint Terrorism Task Force began an investigation into the odd occurrences, and an undercover FBI agent made contact as a potential supplier of radiation equipment, such as x-ray tubes, and emailed him with information on different x-ray systems.
Really weird story. The charge, according to the FBI Press Release, is Conspiracy to Provide Material Support to Terrorists. I think that makes the synagogue and the KKK into terrorist organizatons. The indictment is sealed.
ROTFL at pussy stretcher.
The same US gov't "experts" who claim that Airsoft toy guns can be converted to machine guns?
If lethal to anyone, it would have been to its builders. The guy is nuts, and that the FBI is wasting time on this shows how the US has made the transition from Constitutional Republic to Idiocracy.
The salesman at Radio Shack?
