FBI arrests 2 local men for alleged terrorist plot [View all]

Source: www.news10.com (ABC Albany news station)

ALBANY, N.Y. - The Federal Bureau of Investigation out of Albany has charged two area men, including one General Electric employee, with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists, by allegedly scheming to create a radiation emitting device to kill targeted people.

The FBI has charged 49-year-old Glendon Scott Crawford of Galway and 54-year-old Eric Feight of Hudson have been arrested and charged after a lengthy undercover investigation that began in April 2012.

At that time, authorities received information that Crawford had approached local Jewish organizations seeking out individuals who might offer assistance in helping him with a type of technology that could be used against people he perceived as enemies of Israel.

The complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Albany states that their scheme was to create a mobile, remotely operated, radiation emitting device "capable of killing targeted individuals silently with lethal doses of X-ray radiation."

Galway is a suburb of Schenectady NY and Hudson is about 40 minutes south of Albany NY. This is very disturbing to me.
