X Ray Weapon
Eric J. Feight 54 of Hudson, N.Y. leaves the federal courthouse in shackles after being arraigned Wednesday June 19, 2013, in Albany, N.Y. Federal authorities accused Feight and Glenson Scott Crawford, 49, of Galway, N.Y., of assembling a portable X-ray weapon that they intended to use to secretly sicken opponents of Israel. Investigators said Crawford approached Jewish organizations last year looking for funding and people to help him with technology that could be used to surreptitiously deliver damaging and even lethal doses of radiation against those he considered enemies of Israel. He and Feight assembled the mobile device, which was to be controlled remotely, but it was inoperable and nobody was hurt, authorities said. (AP Photo/The Albany Times Union, Skip Dickstein)
