    Nobody has been arrested, that was Christian Broadcasting Network misinformation.

    Friday Update on Fort Jackson Investigation of Poison Threat wltx.com | Columbia, SC News, Weather and Sports |

    Fort Jackson, SC (WLTX, CBS) - Three of the five Fort Jackson soldiers being investigated for claims of making threats have been cleared, CBS News reports.

    Late Thursday, the Christian Broadcasting Network's website and Fox News reported that some soldiers were under investigation on claims they threatened to poison food at the training base. Previous Coverage: Reports Surface of Investigation of Food Poison Plot at Fort Jackson

    Fort Jackson officials confirmed to WLTX Thursday night that the investigation started in December to look into "potential verbal threats against fellow soldiers."

    Friday, CBS National Security Correspondent David Martin reported that the investigation began as a result of someone who claimed to have overheard other soldiers talking about poisoning the food. Martin has discovered that five soldiers were originally under investigation, but at least three have now been cleared.

    Martin goes on to report that no arrests were made, although the group was brought in for questioning.

    The Army Criminal Investigation Division, the group in charge of the investigation, told WLTX that, "we have not found any credible evidence to substantiate the allegations."
    So what happened here is that one guy claimed that he heard 5 guys talking about poisoning the food. The army doesn't buy it and has already cleared three of the five.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    You have it backward. If it turns out to be true, THEN we worry.

    We won't hold our breath for the apology for promoting the scaremongering when it's discredited.

    Well this is wonderful news that it seems it will end up not being true. Unless the last two have some super secret plot.

    So I should apologize for a story I didn't write or run? Ok, I'm sorry?

    ..and it was Chris Grey of the U.S. Army Crimininal Investigations division that is the source for the story.

    That was some of the worst reporting I've seen in ages. The CBN is becoming more and more the Religious equivalent of the 9/11 conspiracy theorists.

    Yes and it appears they learned a lesson from it?

    I first heard this story on Michael Savage's radio show; he interviewed the reporter who did the "investigating" and his source was someone supposedly directly involved in the investigation. The two of them used this "breaking news" as an opportunity to engage in hysterics about Muslim terrorism.

    For me, sensational media claims are met with immediate skepticism...

    It's not that easy to get into a mess hall and start messing with the food. Those mess hall Sgts. are worse than a mama bear protecting her cub. This sounds like bull**** to me.
