Anarchist US soldiers ‘plotted government overthrow’ – BBC
A group of American soldiers formed an anarchist militia and plotted to overthrow the United States government, a court in Georgia has heard.
The allegations emerged in a murder case against four soldiers accused of belonging to the group.
Prosecutors say the men formed a militia called Fear, standing for Forever Enduring Always Ready.
They are alleged to have bought $87,000 (£56,000) worth of arms to bomb targets and assassinate President Obama.
Prosecutor Isabel Pauley told the judge at the Long County court, near the Fort Stewart army base, that the militia had bought land in Washington state and planned to bomb a dam and poison apple crops in the area.
Their ultimate aim, she said, was to overthrow the government and assassinate the president.
