Shooting suspect 'radicalized' in jail
Washington Times ^ | June 5, 2009 | Jon Gambrell

Posted on 06/05/2009 10:30:47 AM PDT by Jet Jaguar

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. | The man accused of fatally shooting a soldier outside a recruiting center begged for FBI agents to free him from a Yemeni jail where he was "radicalized" by Islamic terrorists, his lawyer told Associated Press on Thursday.

Lawyer Jim Hensley described Abdulhakim Muhammad as an impressionable youth driven to public service in an impoverished Middle Eastern country. But teachings by "hardened" terrorists in Yemen and experiences with Afghan child refugees who were missing limbs drove him to become someone his parents didn't recognize, Mr. Hensley said.

"Here comes the FBI, who may be able to help this guy or save his life, and then they leave and then he's got to go back in with these hardened terrorists. He's got to survive, how do you live with that?" Mr. Hensley said. "He absolutely feels that the FBI and anyone else associated with the United States government left him to the wolves, that's for certain."

The FBI office in Nashville, Tenn., referred calls to a spokesman in Memphis, who was not in his office Thursday. Pulaski County Prosecutor Larry Jegley did not immediately respond to a call for comment.

Mr. Muhammad has pleaded not guilty to a capital murder charge in the death Monday of Army Pvt. William Long. Another soldier, Pvt. Quinton I. Ezeagwula, was wounded in the attack. Mr. Hensley said his client stood by his plea and said Mr. Muhammad wanted to hold a news conference or issue a statement to "explain himself."

I'm relieved to find out that it's our fault.

For a while there I thought this guy was a terrorist.

There's more than one way to release someone from jail -- just sayin'...

I guess I misunderstood earlier reports, I thought he was in a US prison, and was converted there... Do you know what he was arrested in yemen for?

This just gets crazier!

Yeah, but our Boy King stated that this was a

“SENSELESS act of violence”.

IE, nothing to see here, folks, just some random shooting with no larger context, let’s move along and forget it.

So, it is America's fault. Who drove his sorry back-side to Yemen?

Did not Malcolm X find his Moslem faith in prison? I do not recall Malcolm shooting any recruiters.

He made his own choices. He needs to suffer the consequences.

Naive Government question here, but does the FBI even have any jurisdiction to help in a Yemeni Prison? Wouldn’t that be the CIA?

After 3 days, he issued a half-hearted statement.
Compared to his statement on the Tiller killing, this one might as well have been commenting on a traffic violation.

He called it a “senseless act of violence”, thereby completely ignoring and covering up the motives of the shooter.

Probably should be State Dep’t? Perhaps the FBI was given permission to interview / interrogate a number of US nationals being held in Yemeni prisons as part of the WOT activities?

Is it me or does the term “radicalized” convey a sense of victimhood? I won’t use it.

He had been arrested in the US too... for a traffic violation which led to the discovery of weapons in his car, including a sawed-off shotgun.

These reports that he was radicalized in Yemen "just recently" are just a smokescreen emanating from his lawyer, who knows by now this guy's trail leads right back to the Columbus, Ohio cell. The fact is, this murderer would not have been in Yemen attending the same 'school' attended by Johnny Taliban if he wasn't already a fully radicalized recruit.

Secure Arkansas organized a rally in rememberance of the first terrorist attack since 9/11. Pvt. William Long was killed and Pvt. Quinton I. Ezeagwula was wounded by Carlos Leon (aka Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad). Channel 11 was the only TV crew out there with a camera, and the AR Dem Gazette sent a reporter and a photographer. The event had several speakers who did a wonderful job. Video footage of them will be uploaded soon. However, the most shocking part of the event was when a muslim fanatic crashed the event. The fanatic drove by and yelled at us, then parked in the parking lot and stood out with a homemade sign yelling anti-American and later anti-Semetic comments. Had this been a ceremony for Tiller, this would have been the top story for both local and national media. Since it isn't a top story, it's up to you to send this to as many people as possible. In case youtube deletes the video or the account, here are multiple links to see and share the video footage.

OK. Let's go with this fiction that Yemen "radicalized" an innocent American citizen.

Their mind-control techniques are obviously very well advanced, and the results of those techniques are being targeted against the US military.

Sounds like a good reason to bomb Yemen flat.
