President Obama has been named in more than one assassination plot, but the latest is likely more disturbing as it comes from the country's troops. Four U.S. soldiers are accused of planning to kill the commander in chief, authorities in Georgia announced, Monday (Aug. 27).
While full details behind the attempt are unknown, the soldiers purchased $87,000 worth of ammunition including “guns, and bomb-making materials,” to carry out their attempt. Officials stumbled upon the plot in relation to a murder case surrounding the shooting death of former soldier Michael Roark, 19, and his girlfriend, Tiffany York, 17.
The four men, belonging to a collective known as Forever Enduring Always Ready (F.E.A.R.), converged at the Fort Stewart Army Base, and worked to recruit new members to the team. They killed Roark and York in the woods, and have been charged with malice murder, felony murder, criminal gang activity, using a firearm while committing a felony, and aggravated assault.
Roark and the men served together in the 4th Brigade Combat Team of the Army's 3rd Infantry Division. He was killed a few days after leaving the army, and was lured to the woods under the pretense of going target shooting. Roark was instructed to get on his knees and was shot in the head twice by Pvt. Christopher Salmon. He was said to be killed because of his unwillingness to cooperate with the militia group.
