Forget white al-Qaeda, sleeper cells of deranged jihadists, and violent Ron Paul supporters of the sort Glenn Beck warned us about — the latest enemy now surfacing in the media was a trust fund millionaire, a Nazi sympathizer, and an Obama hater who supposedly planned to build a dirty bomb.
|Belfast, Maine, Police Chief admits the materials found in James G. Cummings II’s house posed no threat.|
Lt. Rusty Noe of the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office told the Bangor Daily News in Maine that James G. Cummings II “was a white supremacist with a cache of radioactive materials and directions for building a dirty bomb in his Belfast home.” It is not known what the trust fund baby planned to do with this material, not that it matters now — he was killed last December by his wife.
Cummings’ wife “indicated James was very upset with Barack Obama being elected President,” an FBI field intelligence report from the Washington Regional Threat and Analysis Center and posted on the WikiLeaks website reveals. “She indicated James had been in contact with ‘white supremacist group(s),” writes Stephen C. Webster for Raw Story. “Also found was literature on how to build ‘dirty bombs’ and information about cesium-137, strontium-90 and cobalt-60, radioactive materials.” According to Belfast police, the materials posed no threat to the community and were not of sufficient quantity to build an effective “dirty bomb.”

However, at the levels created by most probable sources, not enough radiation would be present in a dirty bomb to cause severe illness from exposure to radiation.”
An image of a nuclear bomb detonating accompanies the Raw Story, giving the impression that an alleged Nazi sympathizer and Obama hater had in his possession materials to construct a dangerous device.
