Eric Feight + Glendon Scott Crawford or triumph of inanity

And thus the story ends:
An upstate New York man who admitted helping build what he thought was a mobile X-ray device to kill Muslims has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

Fifty-seven-year-old Eric Feight, of Hudson, pleaded guilty in 2014 to providing material support to terrorists. He was sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Albany.

Feight was arrested in 2013 along with 51-year-old Glendon Scott Crawford, of Galway. Crawford is awaiting sentencing after his conviction in August of conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction and other charges.
They could have tried to kill their intended victims more successfully by showing them this:

The stupidity of the perps is staggering, as the following shows quite clearly:
Investigators began tracking Crawford in 2012 after he approached two Albany-area Jewish groups. They also learned Crawford sought help from a Ku Klux Klan grand wizard who was an FBI informant.
On the other hand, the representatives of the State in this tragicomedy... well, see for yourself:
Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Belliss said earlier "Mr. Crawford hated Muslims and other politically liberal people".
And other politically liberal... oh well.
