Fort Hood Plot: AWOL Soldier Planned Dual Bombing, Shooting, Officials Say
abc NEWS THE BLOTTER ^ | July 28, 2011 | RHONDA SCHWARTZ

A U.S. serviceman is in custody after he allegedly admitted he was planning an attack on the U.S. Army base at Fort Hood, Texas, the same base where 13 people were killed in a 2009 terror attack.

U.S. officials told ABC News an AWOL serviceman, identified by the FBI as a Private First Class Naser Jason Abdo, was arrested Wednesday after making a purchase at Guns Galore in Killeen, Texas, the same ammunition store where Maj. Nidal Hasan purchased the weapons he allegedly used to gun down 13 people and wound 32 others on Nov. 5, 2009.

Abdo, 21, allegedly told law enforcement he wanted to "get even" and was targeting Ft. Hood because of the previous attack there allegedly carried out by Hasan, according to law enforcement documents obtained by ABC News. He allegedly did not plan to attack the base itself, but instead planned to plant a bomb at a nearby restaurant popular with Ft. Hood personnel.

He was in the process of building two bombs and hoped to detonate both at the target location before using a pistol to shoot survivors, the documents say.

The soldier had gone AWOL over the July 4 weekend from Fort Campbell's 101st Airborne Division in Kentucky over 800 miles away, according to a senior military officer.

When he was arrested, Abdo was in possession of large quantities of ammunition, weapons and what appeared to be the makings of a bomb, according to early accounts from law enforcement. He had also apparently purchased an Army uniform with Fort Hood patches from a local surplus store.

Yes, but did he receive his Conscientious Objector status for being Muslim?

I’ll work on thinking of a more funny comment on the mispelled title.

Back later....

I saw that headline and I knew instinctively you would be right on top of a typo. Sure must be nice to be at the level of perfection you think of yourself. I just cannot imagine how I would get through a day without the nose pickers.

I don't know what would cause a typo when copying a title.

Sure must be nice to be at the level of perfection you think of yourself.

It's pretty nice. It also makes the mistakes stand out. There's a price for everything.

I just cannot imagine how I would get through a day without the nose pickers.

Family and friends are important to me as well, although I'd not classify mine that way.

How could you possibly have time for ‘family and friends’ given the amount of time you spend picking other peoples noses?

He initially received it from the DOD, believe it or not, but then it was revoked by a military panel, since you have to have a track record of being a member of a pacifist religion or group before you apply.

Needless to say, Islam is not a pacifist religion and therefore there was no way he could qualify.

How could I have been so wrong?

Obviously any letters one wishes to include in the word “Fort” are just fine.

In fact, numbers or symbols or punctuation marks are similarly fine.

I hang my head in shame at my narrow mindedness.

You would be surprized at what the individual citizen and business owners of gun store and guns ranges have been asked to do. My friends at Guns Galore and others were requested to report suspicious behaviors. We all have direct contact with several gov’t agencies that requires no redtape to get thru. I am sorry if this a long reply, been a few months since I last logged in.

Considering the increasingly leftist slant of our military leadership, that comes as a welcome surprise.

Please spare us from anything corny or, even worse, callous.
