AWOL Soldier Arrested for Fort Hood Bomb Plot

July 28, 2011  | 

An AWOL U.S. serviceman was busted with bomb-making materials near Fort Hood and may have been plotting another attack at the base, authorities said Thursday.

Pfc. Nasser Jason Abdo faces federal charges after the FBI recovered guns and "bomb-making components, including gunpowder" in his hotel room near the base.

Abdo, a practicing Muslim from Texas who had been fighting for conscientious objector status, had disappeared from Fort Campbell, Ky., where he faced child porn charges.

I believe in this case that a gun shop alerted the police concerning this suspect after he purchased ammo, gun powder etc. I wonder if the Army is still too politically correct to find or seek out these guys themselves.

A "practicing Muslim" seeking conscientious objector status? We have not been drafting people for decades now, everyone in the military is there because they volunteered. So, why would this individual join up THEN file for C.O. status when he didn't even have to join to begin with? Could it be to get the training and learn various weapon systems, possibly some security procedures where he was stationed? He is reportedly a Private First Class and that is a low rank so did he decide on his own to go AWOL, go to the Ft. Hood area and obtain bomb-making materials - or is he being "handled" by others?

Regrettably Tom, too many in the military, especially the upper echelons, have been infected by the pervasive PC attitude to where they are afraid of their own shadows when it comes to calling a spade a spade, or a Muslim a Muslim. Obvious to any objective observer, this starts at the very top and works its insidious way down, not the other way around.
