A federal grand jury has indicted a former Tennessee Congressional candidate for soliciting others to burn down a mosque. A former candidate for Congress in Tennessee was charged Tuesday with plotting to burn down a mosque in New York state. Robert R. Doggart, 63, of Sequatchie County, Tennessee, was indicted by a federal grand jury, accused of soliciting others to destroy religious property, a civil rights violation.
Court documents say Doggart talked with a confidential source and with others on a cellphone the FBI was monitoring, saying he wanted to firebomb several buildings, including the mosque, a school and the cafeteria. In early April, he talked of planning to go to the area in New York "to conduct recon." He was arrested in mid-April and agreed to plead guilty, but the judge rejected the proposed plea as legally insufficient. “We will be cruel to them. And we will burn down their buildings [Referring to their mosque and school.] ...and if anybody attempts to harm us in any way... we will take them down, said Robert Doggart.” He also detailed the weapons he would use in the attack, including an M-4 military assault rifle, armor-piercing ammunition, explosives, pistols, and a machete, because “If it gets down to the machete, we will cut them to shreds.”
The unsealed Federal criminal complaint alleged that Robert Doggart had threatened to burn down several buildings in a Muslim community near Hancock, New York, nicknamed by its residents as "Islamberg" -- and even kill residents if it came down to that. He planned to enlist the help of members of a militia called "OAF" to carry out the plot. On January 15th 2015, Ryan Mauro, a national security analyst at the Clarion Project, said on Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor" that the FBI considered The Muslims of America, the group headquartered at Islamberg, to be a threat. Ryan Mauro also said he had video of Islamberg residents "engaging in guerrilla warfare training." "It appears from several law enforcement sources that no such video exists."
Delaware County NY UnderSheriff Craig Dumond, Captain of NY State Police James Barnes and Oak Brook IL Police Chief James Kruger all say terror claims made by Ryan Mauro of the so-called Clarion Project on Fox News about Islamberg are false, without merit and totally unsubstantiated. All this recent media attention in regard to potential terrorist training camps and things that are going on there — we don’t see it,” Craig Dumond, Undersheriff of Delaware County, told investigator reporter Aaron Klein two months ago. Oak Brook IL Police Chief James Kruger is assuring the community there are no local extremist Islamic groups following a TV report that had Oak Brook IL listed on a map among 20 municipalities in the United States as a city with a "radical Muslim organization." Quote: Captain Barnes said he has seen no "nefarious" activity in Islamberg. "I think there is a lot of misinformation that is out there, certainly on the Internet," said Capt. James Barnes from the New York State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation. Barnes told CBS News that he's had a personal relationship with the community of Islamberg for 12 years. Ryan Mauro appears to have fabricated false information about Islamberg to entice others to violence, like American Taliban Robert Doggart, Mauro is a frequent contributor to Fox News and reporter Malia Zimmerman, if he lied about Islamberg what else did he lie about?
