A US soldier is charged with terrorist crimes for organizing a deadly ambush at his unit by sending information to a neo-Nazi group.
Ethan Meltzer, 22, is accused of sending confidential information about his unit in the Order of the Nine Corners.
The US Department of Justice calls it an “occult and neo-Nazi racially motivated violent extremist group.”
He allegedly planned to transmit information to jihadists who would then attack.
His plan was foiled late last month by the FBI and the US Army. He was arrested on June 10th.
Private Melzer was accused of conspiracy and attempted murder of US citizens, conspiracy and attempted murder of military personnel, provision and attempt to provide material support to terrorists, as well as conspiracy to kill and mutilate in a foreign country.
Private Meltzer enlisted in the U.S. Army in December 2018 and began active service in June 2019.After shooting in Seattle, the practice of protests without police is canceled
