U.S. soldier plotted with a satanic neo-Nazi cult to stage ‘murderous ambush on his unit


A U.S. Army soldier has been charged with terrorism-related offenses for allegedly planning to "ambush" his unit by passing along sensitive information to a neo-Nazi occult group, the Department of Justice 

Ethan Melzer, 22, is charged with conspiring and attempting to murder U.S. nationals, conspiring and attempting to murder military service members, providing and attempting to provide material support to terrorists, and conspiring to murder and maim in a foreign country.
The Department of Justice said Melzer confessed to planning the attack "to result in the deaths of as many of his fellow service members as possible."
Melzer, a private, enlisted in the U.S. Army in December 2018, and joined the Order of the Nine Angles (O9A) in 2019, the Justice Department said. The Justice Department described members of the group as espousing "violent, neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic, and Satanic beliefs," and claimed they've "expressed admiration for both Nazis, such as Adolf Hitler, and Islamic jihadists," including Osama bin Laden. Members of the group have participated in acts of violence, including murder.
"Melzer allegedly attempted to orchestrate a murderous ambush on his own unit by unlawfully revealing its location, strength and armaments to a neo-Nazi, anarchist, white supremacist group," Strauss said in a statement.
The Department of Justice said the FBI and the U.S. Army "thwarted" Melzer's plot in late May and he was arrested on June 10.
According to the Justice Department, Melzer deployed abroad in October 2019. Prior to planning the attack, he allegedly consumed propaganda from multiple extremist groups, including O9A and ISIS.
Around May 17, Melzer allegedly exchanged electronic communications about passing along information to a person he believed was a member of al Qaeda. Between May 24 and 25, he allegedly shared information about his unit's planned deployment and promised to share more.
