So, this happened:

Federal prosecutors announced Wednesday they had charged an alleged member of the Ku Klux Klan . . . with designing a remote-controlled, truck-mounted device that could silently beam [lethal] doses of radiation at human targets, according to the Albany Times Union.


The investigation . . . was first opened in April 2012 when [Glendon Scott Crawford, 49,] allegedly went into an Albany synagogue and "asked to speak with a person who might be willing to help him with a type of technology that could be used by Israel to defeat its enemies, specifically, by killing Israel's enemies while they slept."

Crawford and the second suspect, Eric Feight, 54, were charged with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists, including use of a weapon of mass destruction.
