Soldiers charged with plotting to kill Obama and overthrow the government


August 27, 2012
Jeremy Herb, writing at The Hill reports that a group of Army soldiers hatched a plot to overthrow the U. S. Government.
Army soldiers formed a militia group in Georgia that plotted to overthrow the U.S. government — and they killed a fellow soldier and his girlfriend to keep the plot secret, prosecutors alleged Monday, according to the Associated Press.

Prosecutors in the Long County, Ga., case say that the militia group planned to overtake the nearby Fort Stewart, to bomb a dam in Washington state and poison the state's apple crop and ultimately overthrow the government and assassinate the president, according to reports.

The group of former and activity duty U.S. service members spent at least $87,000 on guns and bomb components, prosecutors said.

The anarchist allegations emerged Monday during the trial where four soldiers are accused of killing former soldier Michael Roark and his 17-year-old girlfriend Tiffany York, to stop their plan from being revealed.

"This domestic terrorist organization did not simply plan and talk," prosecutor Isabel Pauley told the judge. "Prior to the murders in this case, the group took action. Evidence shows the group possessed the knowledge, means and motive to carry out their plans."

The militia group's name is F.E.A.R, which stands for Forever Enduring Always Ready. Prosecutors did not know how many members the group had, according to published reports.

The four soldiers accused of killing Roark knew each other at Fort Stewart. One of the four soldiers charged, Pfc. Michael Burnett, backed up the prosecutor's claims Monday, after he pleaded guilty to manslaughter and agreed to testify against the others, the AP reported.

The other defendants, Pvt. Isaac Aguigui, Sgt. Anthony Peden and Pvt. Christopher Salmon, have been charged in criminal court with murder and criminal gang activity, among other charges. The Army also filed charges against the four soldiers, according to reports, although it has not acted on them.

    Americans are getting fed up with government,,Republicans,democrats,their all the same creature..Politics for personal gain.. America is getting fed up with it and this will not be the last incident. Whether what they were planning was wrong or not it will continue and one day cival war will start again..The schools don't teach it but all true southerners know that the war was not fought over slavery but instead southerners were fed up with the government growing to big and powerful.. Much the same as today.. I don't consider these people terrorist,,just people that are fed up and ready to give the ultimate sacrifice to try and change what cannot be changed without war. That is the reason we defend everybody else in the world,because diplomacy and peaceful solutions will not work..Im very patriotic and support the military. Am friends with many soldiers and they talk about the day when the people revolt against the government and the government turns their own military loose on the population.. I believe most soldiers will defect and join the so called terrorists instead of killing fellow americans.. Only time will tell but we are definatly headed that way..They were called rebels back then and fought a hard fought battle for what was right. I guess the new word for rebel is terrorist.. political correctness i assume....

    I would say any group that wants to POISON civilians is a terrorist group. A legitimate "coup" would only aim its violence at the government powers to overthrow, not the innocent population they want to liberate.

    It's one thing to hate, but don't hate the citizens. As you say "Defend everybody".

    To deny that these guys were not terrorists is wrong and misguided ideology.

    Your right and i completly agree with the not hurting civilians part..But tell me a war where civilians did'nt get killed ?? I agree they went too far with the poisioning idea. But civilians in the way never stopped any war from pursueing their objective..I remember a little bomb placed in hiroshima was considered then and now as a great victory.. Lots of civilians die on both sides in war..Colladeral damage i believe they call it.. Im willing to die for the greater good of the country,whether it be by foriegn forces or our own. As long as the objective is completed im good with it..Hell far as that goes,,population control probably aint a bad idea...
