Federal authorities accused two upstate New York men on Wednesday of conspiring to provide support to terrorists. The strange part of the case? Scientists deemed the plot, “the stuff of comic books.”
Glendon Scott Crawford, 49, of Galway, and Eric J. Feight, 54, of Hudson, were trying to assemble an X-ray weapon to target opponents of Israel. Authorities say they wanted to attach a remote-control switch to a van-mounted, industrial X-ray machine and secretly radiate people who would sicken or die days later.
