From the “Oh Give Me A Break” conspiracies, we find one that reminds us NOT TO DISMISS ALL OF THEM SO QUICKLY!!! Many thanks to Bill Podell for this one! The Daily Caller is also reporting this, but frankly with a headline of “Truck-mounted radiation death ray: coming soon to your local KKK?” it’s hard to believe they are taking this too seriously. Well, they should. THIS one is for real! The people involved have the knowledge, access to the materials and facilities to actually DO THIS!! BOTH work(ed) for GE – one as an industrial mechanic and the other as an electronics engineer. It involves an industrial X-ray machine and ionized radiation emitters. Plans were already set for a “test run” at an undisclosed hotel. Sort of a “park it in the lot and see who is still alive in the morning” first test. I’m as Red-Blooded as ANYONE, but there are simply some things that are WRONG, AND THIS IS ONE OF THEM!! There never has been, never is, nor ever can be, ANY JUSTIFICATION FOR INDISCRIMNATE KILLING!!! THESE are the tactics of those we abhor and oppose. WE ARE BETTER THAN THIS! And if you don’t agree, you are probably reading the wrong blog.

“Terrorism radiation plot uncovered in Albany”

“A plot to design a radiation weapon that could fit in a small van and be used to silently kill humans was unraveled by an FBI task force that charged two men — a General Electric Co. industrial mechanic from Saratoga County and a computer software expert from Columbia County…

The FBI on Tuesday arrested Glendon Scott Crawford, 49, of Galway, and Eric J. Feight, 54, of Hudson, who are accused of developing “a radiation emitting device that could be placed in the back of a van to covertly emit ionizing radiation strong enough to bring about radiation sickness or death against Crawford’s enemies,”…

In telephone calls recorded by the FBI, Crawford also identified himself as “a member of the Ku Klux Klan, specifically, the United Northern & Southern Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.”

Crawford is listed on several websites as a member of Americans Demanding Liberty and Freedom, a Galway-based tea party group.

… Crawford described his plan to an undercover informant to construct a powerful industrial X-ray machine that would be powered by a makeshift, 2,000-watt battery. The plan included an attempt by Crawford to find part-time work in a metal shop where he would have access to X-ray tubes containing radioactive materials, the complaint states.

“Crawford also told the (source) that the target of his radiation emitting device would be the Muslim community,” the complaint states. “Crawford described the device’s capabilities as ‘Hiroshima on a light switch’ and that ‘everything with respiration would be dead by the morning.'”

Crawford ended the meeting by stating “how much sweeter could there be than a big stack of smelly bodies?”

According to federal authorities, Crawford recruited Feight, who had worked for a manufacturer of electronic control devices in Hudson, to assist him with the design and construction of the device. Feight, a GE vendor, met Crawford last year through their association at General Electric Co., according to the complaint.

Under the plot described by the FBI, Crawford set about building the radiation device while Feight conceived the electronic controls. The two men met May 20 in Albany and Feight gave a remote-transmission device to Crawford. They had planned a test to take place at an undisclosed hotel in the Albany area.
