[ RadSafe ] Targeted Radiation System

The Southern Poverty Law Center reported on a Ku-Klux-Klan (KKK) attempt to
design & build a remote-operated industrial-sized X-RAY system for killing
individuals. Though this has been discussed before, I found the article


Two men, one of them a member of the Ku Klux Klan, were arraigned today in
Albany, N.Y., on federal charges of plotting to build a mobile radiation
gun intended to kill Muslims - or "medical waste," as the plotters called
their intended targets.

Glendon Scott  Crawford, 49, a Klan member from Galway, N.Y., and Eric J.
Feight, 54, of Hudson, are both charged with conspiracy to provide material
support for terrorism in the use of a weapon of mass destruction.

The case has been under investigation by a Joint Terrorism Task Force since
at least April 2012, when Crawford allegedly reached out to Jewish
organizations, asking if Israel would be interested in such a weapon to
kill its enemies.

"The essence of Crawford's scheme is the creation of a mobile, remotely
operated, radiation emitting device capable of killing human targets
silently and from a distance with lethal doses of radiation," says a
67-page criminal complaint filed by the FBI.

It might sound far-fetched, but experts told investigators that the design
would work, producing a "a lethal, and functioning, remotely controlled
radiation-emitting device," the complaint says

A "central feature of the weaponized radiation device is that the target(s)
and those around them would not immediately be aware they had absorbed
lethal doses of radiation and the harmful effects of that radiation would
not become apparent until days after the exposure," the complaint says.

At one point, Crawford described his planned device as "Hiroshima on a
light switch," the complaint says.

The charging document contends that Crawford, who worked at a General
Electric manufacturing plant, conspired in designing the device with
Feight, who the Albany
as working for an electronics company in Columbia County, N.Y.

No actual device was built, the complaint says, but the pair was far along
with the design and testing.

"Crawford, conspiring with Feight, and assisted by others, has supervised
and successfully completed the building, testing and demonstration of a
remote initiation device," the complaint says. "He now (on or about June
18, 2013) plans to integrate that remote initiation device into a
truck-borne, industrial-grade x-ray system, thus weaponizing that system
and allowing it to be turned on and off from a distance and without

The complaint says Crawford described his device as having three core
components: "an x-ray tube or system that would emit ionizing radiation; a
power supply for the x-ray tube/system; and a control panel that could be
used to remotely turn the device on and off."

The case against the pair, it initially appears, is built around extensive
recordings of their conversations and e-mails. Within six weeks of
Crawford's attempts to solicit financing from two Jewish organizations, the
FBI was monitoring and recording much of his activity and had recruited an

Last August, Crawford traveled by car from his home in Albany to North
Carolina to meet and solicit funding from an unidentified  "ranking member
of the Ku Klux Klan," specifically the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux
Klan, who cooperated when contacted by FBI agents. In early October, he
traveled to Greensboro, N.C., to meet with a cooperating witness and two
undercover FBI agents who posed as "Southern businessmen of means who were
associated with the KKK."

Crawford "described to the [undercover FBI agents] his radiation emitting
device, his remote initiation device, mobilizing the radiation device and
discussed operation security concerns," the complaint says. "Crawford again
solicited money to finance his scheme (primarily to fund the purchase or
acquisition of an industrial strength x-ray system)."

The complaint further says the "first and second branches have assisted
Crawford with financing and obtaining of parts." The reference is to two
"branches" of the investigation, which were actually two groups made up
entirely of undercover law enforcement officials and cooperating witnesses.

In conversations recorded by the FBI, the complaint says, Crawford
identified himself as "a member of the Ku Klux Klan, specifically, the
United Northern & Southern Knights of the Ku Klux Klan."
