The FBI has arrested a soldier after he chatted on Facebook about plans to go to the Ukraine and join a paramilitary group and also threated the life of Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke, saying he could be a target for a bomb.
Agents who arrested him said the man gave them specifics on how to build a bomb.
The agent who wrote the complaint issued against the man said “He admitted that he provides this information even to individuals who tell him they intend to use the information to cause harm to others. Smith (the man’s name) stated that he did this to cause ‘chaos.’ He told me that if chaos results in the death of people, even through information he provided it, it doesn’t affect him.”
Just as scary, though, is this story from Military Times (link below) from last week about a man arrested in Georgia who said he would execute an American soldier if Isis ordered him to.
There’s too much of this terrorist craziness around.
