The new top federal prosecutor in Manhattan on Monday announced her first case since the weekend’s upheaval: the arrest of a U.S. Army soldier charged with plotting a deadly ambush of his unit in Turkey by extremists.
In a release, Acting U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss called Private Ethan Melzer, 22, of Louisville, Kentucky, “the enemy within.”
His lawyers declined comment.
“Melzer was motivated by racism and hatred as he attempted to carry out this ultimate act of betrayal,” Strauss said.
William F. Sweeney Jr., head of the FBI’s New York office, said: “Melzer declared himself to be a traitor against the United States, and described his own conduct as tantamount to treason.

Are there a lot of Turkish Neo-Nazis?
Closest i can think of is the Grey Wolves, but they are Ottoman Restorationists, not National Socialists.

I'll just take your word for it. I wouldn't know.
Ex Navy myself, that's why it kinda stung for me, not saying there were never any individual racist in the military, but during my stint, something like an org was rare.

The Order of Nine Angles (ONA or O9A; also the Order of the Nine Angles) is a Satanic and Left-Hand Path occult group based in the United Kingdom, but with associated groups in various other parts of the world. Claiming to have been established in the 1960s, it rose to public recognition in the early 1980s, attracting attention for its neo-Nazi ideologies and activism. Describing its approach as "Traditional Satanism", it has been identified by academic researchers as also exhibiting Hermetic and modern Pagan elements in its beliefs.

Just amplify that stuff.
Meanwhile, at Ft. Hood a second soldier has gone missing. This young lady told folks about some kind of nefarious crap going on, and her concern for her safety. Apparently, there is organized crime within the US Army, and theyll kill their own while commissioning their crimes.
In other worse: the US army is a cross section of society, although weighted heavily in favor of the less intellctual in our society due to the fact that they seem to exploit dumb young people with a history of "issues" so much during recruitment.
