American Terror

December 16, 2008 Camp Lejeune, NC

Kody Ray Brittingham, a lance corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps, is arrested with four others on attempted robbery charges. A search of his barracks room at Camp Lejeune, N.C., allegedly turns up white supremacist materials and a journal written by Brittingham containing plans to kill Barack Obama. Brittingham is indicted for threatening the president-elect of the United States, a crime that carries a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

  2. When in the army, I once encountered a reasonable-seeming individual. At least he appeared reasonable until he began telling a version of the Civil Rights movement of which even Nixon himself would have been skeptical.
