New details are emerging about the four U.S. soldiers accused of plotting to assassinate President Obama and overthrow the U.S. government.

The bizarre story began unfurling on Monday after Pfc. Michael Burnett, dressed in his Army uniform, testified in a southeast Georgia court against his fellow militia members. Prosecutors accused the group F.E.A.R. (Forever Enduring Always Ready) of buying $87,000 worth of assault rifles, bomb materials, and semiautomatic weapons in a plot to bomb a park in nearby Savannah, poison apple orchards in Washington state and blow up a dam with the ultimate goal of overthrowing the government and killing Barack Obama. The group also stands accused of murdering former U.S. soldier Michael Roark and his girlfriend Tiffany York after they learned of the group’s plans.

In a plea bargain, Burnett plead guilty to manslaughter and illegal gang activity on Monday in connection with Roark and York’s murder…

The four U.S. soldiers implicated in the crimes, Pvt. Isaac Aguigui, Sgt. Anthony Peden, Pvt. Christopher Salmon and Burnett, are all active members of the U.S. Army. According to Burnett, the group’s rationale behind killing the president was “to give the government back to the people,” according to CNN….The Associated Press reports that the group courted current and former soldiers “who were in trouble or disillusioned.” Prosecutors said they had no idea of the size of F.E.A.R.’s membership.

The alleged ringleader of F.E.A.R. is Pvt. Aguigui, who funded the militia with $500,000 in insurance and benefit payments from the death of his wife just one year ago. Aguigui called himself “the nicest coldblooded murderer you will ever meet,” according to a video interview with military investigators…

…According to Fort Stewart spokesman Kevin Larson, the military has an ongoing probe within the Criminal Investigative Division but no one else is being tied to the crimes at this point, according to Larson. Apparently, Burnett pleaded guilty to manslaughter and agreed to testify against the three other soldiers in order to avoid a death sentence.

This fiasco will be used to leverage and grow DHS, you watch. Checkpoints anyone?

    So they were going to bomb stuff, just like the Weather Underground bombed the Capitol and the Pentagon. You know, that was the communist revolutionary organization founded by Mr. Obama’s friend, Bill Ayers.

  2. orchidcup says:

    Right. Four guys are gonna overthrow the government and assassinate the President.

    Must be a Christian militia.

  3. Sea Lawyer says:

    What can’t happen here? A Revolution? That’s how this country exists in the first place.

    • LibertyLover says:

      I read an article last night about this. A couple of lawyers were asking where the line was drawn between what they were attempting to do and treason.

      Their line of reasoning was interesting. I suspect the line is drawn closer the ones with the most weapons . . .

    • Nixon for fuehrer says:

      Another Republican illiterate, eh? Never read Sinclair Lewis.

  4. McCullough says:

    Sounds like they were cut from the same cloth as these idiots.

    “Today’s New Black Panther Party (NBPP) frequently speaks of killing “crackers babies,“ ”f***ots” and old white women. With characteristically fiery rhetoric, spokespeople for the party announced that they would disrupt the “Republi-Klan convention” in the strongest possible way. They accused the attendants of the RNC of being “haters.” And in a characteristic call for violence, they threatened to snap the spines of RNC attendees.

    “Our feet will be on your motherf***ing necks,“ snarled one of the NBPP representatives in an interview with ”Black Power Radio.””

    Probably all agent provocateurs. Or are they both domestic terrorists? If so why haven’t they been arrested or denounced by the left?

    • The Monster's Lawyer says:

      Since when were the NBPP a branch of the armed forces sworn to uphold the constitution and follow orders of the Commander In Chief.
      These guys gave their oath but felt obliged to subvert and therefore should be charged with treason.

      • McCullough says:

        You mean like the Oath of Office the President and politicians take?

        Yeah, OK. I’m in total agreement.

        • The Monster's Lawyer says:

          Sort of like that. Except after taking the oath the soldier gets trained to kill. No such training for politicians but they manage just the same. What’s your point?

          • McCullough says:

            My point…the Constitution doesn’t mean a whole lot when the leaders won’t defend or protect it.

            So if a soldier breaks his oath, he should be punished but when a President does the same, he gets re-elected.

            Seems fair.

          • ± says:

            not to worry McCullough …. Obama will lose by the greatest embarrassing margin in living history to sheeple who will elect Romney … so your flavor of country destruction can have it’s brief reign (apologies if you are not voting R, but it seems that way)

        • msbpodcast says:

          Sadly, you’re right.

          The oath of allegiance is mistaken as a kow tow to power, but that does not mean that you should not be protected from abuse when you rise a legitimate concern.(Hence Julian Assange deserve a medal not a jail term.)

          What politicians do to it is totally self-serving and assume that, since they don’t hear any objections from the echo chamber, they’re entitled to do whatever the fuck they want and wipe their butts with the constitution.

          I gave up years ago

          This country is so screwed as it circles the drain hole of history.

    A 26-year old private first class. Not exactly a criminal genius by any standard.

    • Dallas says:

      Gotta nip these lunatic fringe teabagger elements in the bud. If they were enlisted in the military, they need to face a firing squad for treason and conspiracy.

      Not enlisted , they need jail time, dusclose their adress like sex offenders for life and all potential employers notified.

  6. bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

    Easy to think of as goofs, but they killed one of their buddies and his girlfriend to keep them quiet about the plot.

    Doesn’t say much for the hooman race.

  7. Guyver says:

    Gun Control wackos or people wanting to play the race card will fully exploit this during the GOP convention and leading up to the election.

    • GregAllen says:

      >> Gun Control wackos

      How about us sane people who support gun control?

  8. So what says:

    So will incarceration limit alfies ability to post his usual rants?

  9. SchwettyBalls says:

    Just some god fearin’, republican gun nuts. MERICA!!

  10. shooff says:

    This is clearly the negative of a volunteer army. Rural, poorly educated, indoctrinated rednecks fill our ranks.

    My nephew was an open-minded Marine with a college degree and a corporate job. Once he went to the Middle east, he got retarded by osmosis. He would rather make love to his gun collection than his hot 24 year old wife. What did they do in those FOPs? Scary!

    Bring back the Draft the Armed Forces should be a equal cross section of the country (at least the poor and middle class portion).

    • orchidcup says:

      Rural, poorly educated, indoctrinated rednecks fill our ranks.

      This is true of the entire country, not just the Army.

  11. sargasso_c says:

    This is the big problem with a big military. Eventually you become Pakistan.

  12. AdmFubar says:

    F.E.A.R. ??? is this a branch of K.A.O.S.??? WTF???

    yeah the illiterates are misdirected once again…
    it isnt the “leaders” you want… the real leaders are the big corporations that have bought government…

  13. NewformatSux says:

    Meanwhile, the Lefties who are actively engaged in violence against conservative groups are being ignored. Family Research Council was shot up, after being propagandized by an LGBT group. National Organization for Marriage was mailbombed, and the cops refused to treat it as a bias crime.

  14. jim g says:

    Gee, they should have waited a couple of more years…..

  15. NewformatSux says:

    “It can’t happen here.”

    Sinclair Lewis wrote this, mocking the idea that fascism would never come to America. Yet what he apparently didn’t realize then, or Americans who repeat it now, is that it did happen here. Alien and Sedition acts early on, but later Wilson to a large degree implemented ‘fascism’. Palmer raids, locking up unfriendly reporters, etc.

  16. jimbo says:

    Assassination would just make a martyr out of the silly schmuck, what’s needed is to make him look foolish. Foolish enough that it’s apparent to all, including the naive Obamaphiles.

  17. NobodySpecial says:

    Bit of a relief to Stephen Harper – by recent US military standards they would accidentally hit the president next door.

  18. NewformatSux says:

    And I think this guy was supposed to be Romney’s mystery guest speaker on Thursday.

    I wonder if Obama is going to run ads of John Kasich saying he supports Romney because he doesn’t like the black guy.

  19. GregAllen says:

    Conservatives HATE gun control but LOVE profiling.

    If we can’t control guns, can we at least start profiling conservative, white, males who are heavily armed?

  20. nauc says:

    Did yall not get the message. As Carlin said, “the public sucks, fuck hope”. “Garbage in, garbage out”.

  21. NewformatSux says:

    I’ve long suspected that the Obama campaign’s reelection strategy would be to fake an assassination attempt. So does this plot hinder the plan, boost it, or was this the plan? It hasn’t been getting much media attention. I was really worried for the President’s safety. His incompetence with the forged birth certificate suggested that his fake assassination attempt would put him in grave danger.

  22. Kent says:

    Maybe next time they should work on their organizational skills. Overthrowing govt is a noble goal however.

  23. gquaglia says:

    I doubt Obama is very popular with the military as a whole.

  24. Semantics says:

    Surprised they aren’t keynote speakers at the RNC convention.

  25. NewformatSux says:

    Meanwhile person who put up a “Kill Mitt Romney” page on FaceBook is left alone, while someone who posted angry stuff about Obama was arrested and taken to a psychiatric hospital for evaluation.

    • John says:

      I am sure the secret service are looking into that. All presidential candidates get a secret service detail.
