From Gawker:
“According to this four-paragraph Associated Press story that raises more questions than it answers, four soldiers based in Georgia hatched an “anarchist” plot to assassinate Barack Obama and take control of Fort Stewart, and then allegedly killed a fellow soldier to keep their plans secret.”
By the way, they invested $87,000 into this murderous plot and seemed to have been able to carry it out.  They weren’t just “talking the talk.”
This is a story you need to be aware of and that is being completely overshadowed by the Republican National Convention and Tropical Storm/Hurricane Isaac.  It saddens, frightens, and enrages me in almost equal measure.  
Here’s the thing: my buddies and I put up with everyone else’s jingoist bullshit during the Bush years but the difference was that our “master plan” was just to vote for Kerry.  And when that didn’t work, we were disappointed, but in the end, we just dealt with it.  We only had to put up with Dubya and Darth Cheney for another four years and also we didn’t live in some testosterone and “Monster”-energy drink fueled paranoid fantasy land so that probably helped too…

I think people are talking about this story — but major media are too tied up in election coverage to do anything about it.

"I’d believe people when they said they’re opposition to Obama was based on his policies and performance and not the color of his skin if they didn’t speak with such open vehemence and bloodlust."
