Soldiers in Georgia plotted to kill Obama, says prosecutor


Terrible news from Ludowici, Ga, near Ft. Stewart:

Prosecutors say a murder case against four soldiers in Georgia has revealed they formed an anarchist militia within the U.S. military with plans to overthrow the federal government.


Prosecutor Isabel Pauley says the group bought $87,000 worth of guns and bomb-making materials and plotted to take over Fort Stewart, bomb targets in nearby Savannah and Washington state, as well as assassinate the president.

The story is scant on details. I imagine more is forthcoming. President Obama spoke at Fort Stewart in April, but there’s no indication in the story that the plot was related to that visit.
