Did You Hear of the Scheme to Poison Washington’s Apples?
It was uncovered in a murder trial in Georgia… Washington State had been a target of a domestic terrorism plot conceived by former U.S. soldiers who had served together at Fort Stewart, Georgia.
What was the first phase of the anarchist militia group’s plans? To poison all of our apples.
It came to light when the four ex-soldiers shot a former comrade and his girlfriend in the woods in order to protect their conspiracy. The prosecutor revealed the group’s big plans in their trial. Apparently, they had discussed bombing a park fountain, taking over Fort Stewart, and in Washington State, of blowing up an unnamed dam and poisoning the apple crop. The ultimate goal: to overthrow the government.
The alleged ringleader of the group had caught the attention of a joint-terrorism taskforce last year when he started gathering over $87,000 worth of guns and weapon components.
