Preparing Plotting

An IBN story uses this alarming headline.

Obama’s bombshell: Pak plotting war on India

Later in the article, they reveal what Obama actually said.

So they’re (Pakistan) using the military aid .. Pakistan .. they’re preparing for a war against India.

From when did prepare (make ready or suitable or equip in advance for a particular purpose) mean the same as plot (plan secretly, usually something illegal) ?
