FORT LEWIS, WASH. - A U.S. National Guardsman who was just days away from being sent to Iraq was arrested Thursday for allegedly trying to provide information to the al-Qaeda network through internet chat rooms.

Spc. Ryan G. Anderson was being held at Fort Lewis on Thursday "pending criminal charges of aiding the enemy by wrongfully attempting to communicate and give intelligence to the al-Qaeda terrorist network," said Lt.-Col. Stephen Barger, a spokesperson with the U.S. army.


US soldier kills comrades in grenade attack

March 24 2003

A US soldier most likely acted out of resentment today when he threw grenades into tents at a 101st Airborne Division command centre, killing a fellow serviceman, an Army spokesman said.

Fifteen other soldiers, including the division commander, were wounded - at least three of them seriously - in the attack early today at Camp Pennsylvania, the rear base for the 101st near the Iraqi border. The 101st is based at Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

The dead soldier was identified today as Army Capt Christopher Scott Seifert, 27. No hometown was immediately available for Seifert, who was sleeping in his tent when the grenade attack occurred, the Defence Department said.

The soldier in custody was identified today as Sgt Asan Akbar of the 326th Engineer Battalion. Fort Campbell spokesman George Heath said Akbar had not been charged with any crime. Heath did not release Akbar's hometown or say how long he had served in the military.


No, folks. We don't need people openly hostile to his comrades defending us. And we don't need John Effin Kerry to be the commander in chief. What a train wreck that would be.

I sure do hope to see a round of hangings soon.

After a fair trail of course.
