Veteran threatens Muslims and Obama

Roman Conaway is a veteran in the US armey with explosives training, who made anti-Islam and anti-government threats culminating with a seven-hour standoff with the police in which he took his wife hostage and made threatening calls to St. Louis area Muslims prompting the FBI involvement. Conaway, who claims he only read the Bible, has talked about those threats against Muslims and Obama for months on Facebook, which worried his family members. In the end, Conaway surrendered to the FBI, which found out that he used harmless props to fool people into believing he was acting on those threats. These devices include a belt with what looked like C4 explosives, wires and a curling iron he said  he was using as a remote triggering device that would activate should he get shot or attacked.
