A group of “Middle Eastern” men asking about the hydroelectric facility at Bagnell Dam in Camden County, Missouri have garnered the attention of the FBI. The men wanted to know if they could rent a boat and tour the dam.
Police say the report does not mean that there is any reason to be overly concerned. However, if you couple the report to the one’s where large number of cell phones were purchased at several mid-Missouri Walmart stores then there is something to be concerned over.
Two “foreign speaking” men set off alarms after they entered the local Walmart store in Lebanon, Missouri by purchasing 60 cell phones. This was followed by second purchase of dozens of cell phones at a Columbia Walmart, a third Walmart in Macon, Missouri and a fourth Walmart in Jefferson City, Missouri.
Now if this isn’t enough to raise a ‘red flag’ for law enforcement, take into account the large number of propane tanks stolen from several locations in Independence and Lee`s Summit, Missouri. Over 48 tanks were taken from a BP gas station and two CVS Pharmacy’s.
Following the thefts, a stash of explosives was discovered in Mark Twain National Forest in Missouri. Officers found a huge cache of “extremely volatile” explosives, which police described to be of a style “that could not be purchased for recreational use.”
The extensive supply was all homemade pipe bombs, created and collected with a specific plan in mind. The stock was so dangerous that it couldn’t be safely moved and had to be detonated in place.
In March of 2015, a hit list from Daesh (ISIS) included the name and information of an Air Force member from Missouri. The state’s home to Whiteman Air Force Base in Johnson, Fort Leonard Wood Army Base in Pulaski and the Marine Corps’ Mobilization Command in Kansas City.
Of course, Snopes, the online debunking site, wants you to believe that none of this is happening.
