I got some rather disturbing e-mail today. It bills itself as "Open letter to the 22 veterans and enlisted men who are planning to commit suicide today. Read this instead!" and it asks those people to commit political assassinations instead.
The thrust of the message is that 911 was an inside job, and the politicians are responsible for sending you to war and hence your PTSD and depression and suicidal thoughts. Then it goes on:
If you are ready to take your own life, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by keeping your oath to God and gaining His respect for doing so. Do not take your own life, but instead do what you KNOW to be right - taking the lives of the domestic enemies/traitors who lied and did this to you.The disturbing part is not so much the conspiracy theory fueled call for assassination, but at the end of the message is a long list of politicians, ranging from John McCain to Barney Frank, along with their addresses, in many cases multiple addresses, which I assume are their state offices.
I haven't read the entire list, but just skimming through, it seems to have names from all fifty states, and a few miscellaneous at the end, and each state has from two to twenty or more entries.
Who should be apprised of this e-mail? Is there an FBI or Secret Service office that looks into things like this I could forward it to?
