G*d DAMMIT! AWOL soldier arrested with bomb material near Ft Hood.
“(CNN) — FBI agents discovered a bevy of bomb-making materials in the hotel room of an AWOL soldier who was arrested near Fort Hood, Texas, the military base where a 2009 shooting spree killed 13 people, a Defense Department official told CNN on Thursday.
Pfc. Naser Abdo, a Muslim American who refused to deploy to Iraq and later went AWOL after facing child pornography charges, was arrested by police in Killeen, Texas, just outside Fort Hood.”
“Abdo refused to deploy to Iraq on grounds of his religion and had put in the paperwork to be discharged as a conscientious objector. The Army approved his request, but he was then charged with child pornography and went AWOL, the official said.”
Can somebody PLEASE get on the ball here? Why was this guy loose? Was not one madman at Fort Hood enough?
CHEESE AND RICE! This guy should have been on the watch list.
Update- h/t Nom from Mcnorman’s
This guy has been in the news before. NomNom found this blog post and pointed me to it.
That post has links galore- this guy has been at it for quite some time. Includes a CNN interview – from 2010!
This is getting ridiculous. Just like the first FT Hood maniac- somebody up the chain of command KNEW about this guy- and did nothing about it. Fear of being called a racist? Not wanting to “profile?” Who the hell knows.
Political correctness is going to kill us all.
