Skip to comments.Suspect in Soldier Attack Was Once Detained in Yemen (The almost forgotten terrorist attack)
Posted on 01/07/2010 2:57:29 PM PST by tobyhill
A 23-year-old man charged with killing one soldier and seriously wounding another in a shooting outside an Army recruiting office in Little Rock, Ark., was once detained in Yemen for possessing a fake Somali passport and other counterfeit documents, law enforcement officials said Tuesday.
The episode in Yemen prompted a preliminary inquiry by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other American law enforcement agencies into whether the man, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, had ties to extremist groups, the officials said. But that investigation was inconclusive, they said, leaving the bureau with insufficient evidence to wiretap his phone or put him under surveillance.
It is not clear when Mr. Muhammad, an American convert to Islam who was traveling on a valid United States passport, was detained in Yemen or why he would have been carrying counterfeit documents. His detention in Yemen was first reported Tuesday by ABC News.

He doesn’t count, nor does Hassan. Just ask the despicable Mr Brennan.
i remember hearing about the old days. Where an American who committed an act of treason was charged as such.
Another gem who didn’t make the no fly list.
I can also remember the time when I would have trusted the FBI both with my life and my country’s well being.
Now I don’t trust them either for their integrity nor their competence.
‘cause then he’d be Jim Jones’ “strike three.”
“Now I dont trust them either for their integrity nor their competence.”
The man who shot an unarmed woman holding a baby was held up as a hero.
They are probably all out looking for aliens with Moulder.
Were they all cleared by Obama’s Yemeni proTerrorism Czar?
Did they all get US taxpayer funding, support?
Americans would not be surprised to find that all
three terrorists spent a night in the Lincoln bedroom.
I know for a fact there are some really astute FReepers keeping track of these incidents. I would appreciate very much any FReeper either posting or Private Reply with a list of terrorist incidents since 9/11 so that I can save it for reference.
You want to check with Backhoe, Narses, &/or Cindy; maybe check their "About" pages.

Always glad to try and help a fellow FReeper.

Very important Yemen connection PING.
Disgusting .. there’s NO ONE at the controls ..
They’ve known for SO long of this
virulent Yemeni connection and the
beastly American imam ...
The Arkansas man accused of killing an Army recruiter and wounding another had used the popular Google Maps application to investigate recruiting centers in at least five states, as well as Jewish institutions, a day-care center, a post office and a Baptist Church, according to a report issued Tuesday evening by the Department of Homeland Security, ABC News has learned.
Recruiting centers in New York, Atlanta, Louisville and Philadelphia were on a list of possible targets, based on evidence found in the home of the suspect, Muslim-convert Abdulhakim Muhammed, according to the report.
A recent convert to Islam, Muhammad, 24, upon his arrest Monday shortly after the fatal shooting, allegedly confessed and told authorities he acted alone, according to court documents. But prior to the shooting, Muhammad had been the subject of a preliminary investigation by the FBI’s Joint Terrorist Task Force since his return from Yemen, where he was arrested and had in his possession a false Somali passport, ABC News has learned.
ARKANSAS’ LONE JIHADIST: HOW ALONE IS HE?
By Walid Phares
In an armed attack outside the Army-Navy Career Center which handles recruiting, in Little Rock, AR, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, 23, killed one soldier wounded another. Muhammad, an American citizen who is a convert to Islam and previously known as Carlos Bledsoe, already had been under investigation by the FBI at the time of the shootings.
He had traveled to Yemen, received indoctrination from radical clerics, according to a watch group, and possessed a false Somali passport.
In short. Our Intel agencies are not performing as what GWB and others a short time back had envisioned. We are screwed.
I posted this on Mark’s thread.
bottom line, not so much line not connected as
not wanting to connect.
