How weak and culpable are the higher ups at DoD. They actually granted conscientious objector status to Abdo, because in Islam you wage war against the infidel, not for the infidel. He was subsequently caught with child pornography, but according to the sharia you can marry girls as young as babies (Muhammad married Aisha when she was six), so why didn't they give him a pass on the child porn charges as well?
We await the same intense and extensive mainstream media coverage and rabid obsession that we witnessed immediately after the Norway massacre to determine the ideology and the Islamic leaders and imams responsible for these thousands of calls to jihad. We await the same intense and extensive mainstream media coverage and deep investigative reporting on the quran, jihad, and the complete system of governance that commands adherence to the sharia. We await the same intense and extensive mainstream media coverage and intense investigation of the ideology that incites to jihadi wars, land appropriations, cultural annihilations, gender apartheid, enslavements, the 911 attacks on America, the 7/7 attacks on London, the 3/11 attacks on Madrid, the Bali attack, the multiple Mumbai attacks, the Beslan attacks, the genocide in Sudan, etc., and the murder of US soldiers in Arkansas and Fort Hood.
I expect that extremists Brian Williams, Anderson Cooper, the NY Times, LA Times, IHT, CNN, BBC, and all members of the mainstream media will be just as rabidly obsessed and consumed with investigating the motive behind these attacks and the imams and Islamic leaders that incite to jihad.
The Ft. Hood assault II jihadi had a copy of this article, "How to make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom," from the devout Muslim AQ website in his backpack.
Photo Pfc. Naser Abdo: Facebook -- translation of the Arabic phrase on the photo reads:
Laa, lan ushaariku fi qatli al-muslimiin
Which, in English, is:
"No, I will not take part in the killing of Muslims"
-- Just two little linguistical curiosities for your amusement. The particle "lan", used to negate the future verb ("will take part"), is very strong, almost to the point of meaning "I will not, under any circumstance, take part..."
"qatl" is killing, assassinating, murdering, and is a word that is a substitute for "jihaad" sometimes in Islamic literature.
AWOL soldier Naser Abdo charged in Fort Hood bomb plot By Peter Finn and and Jason Ukman, Washinton Post July 29
A U.S. soldier who is accused of planning to attack troops near Fort Hood, Tex., shouted out “Nidal Hasan Fort Hood 2009” as he left a federal courtroom in Waco on Friday.
Pfc. Naser Abdo, 21, had told investigators after his arrest Thursday that he was acting in support of Hasan, the Army psychiatrist who has been charged in the killing of 13 people at the base in 2009, according to congressional and federal officials.
Abdo was charged Friday with possession of an unregistered destructive device in connection with a bomb plot and faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted, according to federal prosecutors. Abdo made a brief initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Waco.
Abdo was arrested in Killeen, Tex., after authorities said they discovered bombmaking materials in his backpack and in a motel room, as well as a copy of an article from the al-Qaeda magazine Inspire, which is produced by the terrorist group’s Yemen affiliate. The article was titled “Make a bomb in the kitchen of your Mom.”
In a criminal complaint, investigators listed some of what they found in Abdo’s possession: a .40 caliber handgun, ammunition, smokeless gunpowder, shotgun shells, shotgun pellets, two clocks, two spools of auto wire, an electric drill and two pressure cookers.
The officials said Abdo was planning to set off bombs at locations outside the base where soldiers gather and to follow the explosions with gunfire.
“I would classify this as a terror plot,” Police Chief Dennis Baldwin told reporters in Killeen. Law enforcement officials said Abdo would be charged in federal court with possession of bombmaking materials, among other offenses.
It could not be learned Thursday whether Abdo has retained a criminal lawyer.
The emergence of another alleged plot to attack troops at the same base where Hasan is accused of striking may intensify fears that there is a growing terrorist threat from self-radicalized Americans and raise questions about whether the military can adequately identify internal threats. Hasan was arraigned in military court this month on capital murder charges but has not entered a plea.
A U.S. counterterrorism official said authorities have not discovered any direct communication between Abdo and foreign Islamist extremists.
No, clowns, it is authentic Islam.
Abdo, attached to the the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Ky., recently sought conscientious objector status because he felt that as a Muslim he could not be deployed to fight in a war zone.
In May, on the same day his status was granted, he was charged with possession of child pornography on a computer he used. Abdo then left Fort Campbell without permission on about the July Fourth holiday and returned to Texas. His home town is listed as Garland.
James Branum, an Oklahoma City lawyer who represented Abdo in his conscientious objector and child pornography cases, described Abdo as gracious, hospitable and “very devoutly religious,” saying he prayed five times a day.
Abdo denied the pornography allegations and said he thought the military was retaliating against him for trying to leave the service.
