Feds: North Texas Militia Supporter Plotted to Blow Up Amazon Data Centers

Seth Aaron Pendley had it all planned out, according to the FBI. The alleged militia supporter had narrowed down to three targets, all Amazon data centers in Virginia. He had painted his Pontiac with a type of black paint he said could be easily peeled off and painted over to throw the cops off his trail. He made contact with a source who could sell him explosives.

But according to the feds, the 28-year-old hit a problem before he could blow up the Amazon data centers: the person meant to sell him the explosives was actually working for the FBI.

When they met last week in Fort Worth to make the exchange, the agent showed Pendley how to arm and detonate the supposed bombs, which were actually “inert devices,” court documents say.

Pendley placed the devices in his vehicle, and then FBI agents swooped in and arrested him, whisking him away on a federal charge of malicious intent to destroy a building with an explosive. The charge could land him in prison for up to 20 years.

2. The data centers that were his targets

provide services to the federal government. He was hoping to cripple the federal government and cause an over-reaction so that people would become convinced that they are living in a dictatorship.
