FBI, US military in hunt for one-time recruit planning 'Fort Hood-style Jihad'
Fox News ^ | Monday, March 31, 2014 | Jana Winter

Posted on 03/31/2014 2:37:54 PM PDT by Star Traveler

EXCLUSIVE: The FBI is searching for a recent Army recruit believed to be planning a "Fort Hood-inspired jihad against U.S. soldiers," FoxNews.com has learned.

The alert, whose legitimacy was confirmed by military and law enforcement officials, stated that a man identified as Booker had told friends of his "intention to commit jihad." Booker, who is also known as Muhammad Abdullah Hassan, was recruited by the U.S. Army in Kansas City, Mo., in February 2014 and was scheduled to report for basic training on April 7. But he was discharged last week, apparently after law enforcement authorities learned of his alleged plan.

Both the FBI and the 902d Military Intelligence Group at Fort Leavenworth are involved in the hunt.

We don’t have any evidence that Muhammad Abdullah Hassan is now or has ever been a member of any Tea Party group. Therefore, he cannot be a terrorist threat to America.

Are we to take it that the Army quietly rejected him for fear being labeled “islamophobes”. Better to suffer the casualties than be labeled “islamophobes”. And we wonder why they are so bold.

Kinda like the interviews with the Boston bombers before hand, better to suffer the attack than write a report using a term so volition as “Islamic extremist”...that could be a career ender.

First of all, it’s “workplace violence”. Second, why the hell is the Army recruiting these terrorists? No need to answer that.

“Muhammad Abdullah Hassan How separated is that from Barack Hussein 0bama?”

Quite a bit, actually, as it would appear that Mr. Hassan is actually black. That’s something Mr. Obama merely aspires to.

No person named Muhammad Abdullah Hassan should ever be permitted to serve in the U.S. military, much less granted a security clearance. I know: there are probably more good Muhammad Abdullah Hassans than bad ones, but at this juncture we can’t afford to take the chance.

Same reason they are recruiting gays. To churn up trouble amongst the troops.

This administration hates the military and they will do whatever it takes to destroy it.

Remember what the Commander of the Army Post Gen Casey Said after Nidal Hassan killed all those soldiers” “real tragedy” would be harming the cause of diversity, saying, “As great a tragedy as this was, it would be a shame if our diversity became a casualty as well.” Several months later, in a February 2010 interview, Casey said, “Our diversity—not only in our Army, but in our country, is a strength. And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse.” What a P.O.S. , I can’t believe someone like Casey ever became a General in the US military.

The DOD released a statement a few weeks ago warning about the “ internal threat .

http://www.stripes.com/news/dod-targets-insider-threat-after-navy-yard-shooting-investigations-1.273361

So right after that release a truck driver disarms a female sailor and then shoots and kills another sailor.

Now we have this guy. Obunga’s fault.

They “discharged” him but didn’t arrest him? Did they get a direct call from the White Hut?

But he was discharged last week, apparently after law enforcement authorities learned of his alleged plan.

Might be a silly question, but why didn't they arrest him while he was still there?

I think he was “Booker” when he joined. I’m assuming he was black, because there are many black people named after Booker T. Washington, but on the other hand, he could have been any Kansas City teenager of any color who was depressed and dysfunctional enough to convert to Islam.

What a joke America has become.

Why was THAT traitor allowing it not removed with prejudice?

You cant make this stuff up. They learn of the plan so quick get him out of here. Then they say to the public “can you help us find this guy” with no pics or description.

When I saw a photo of the killer of the MP, it screamed “Islamic convert.” It’s the shaved head and the beard that give it away.

That’s why we haven’t heard anything about him or his “motive,” and why it took so long to release any information at all about him (while the Navy was cooking up a story to protect Islam).

I would go as far as saying no person named Muhammad Abdullah Hassan should be allowed to be in the US, let alone live here. Dying, on the other hand, is quite fine. My statements are predicated on the fact that Islam is not a religion. It is a death cult and as such its followers have no 1st Amendment protections based on religious grounds.

Let me understand, he is recruited by our military , locals say he has a plot to commit work place violence so they discharge him and now can’t find him? False flag discovered by local LEOs ? Spoiled plan initiated by who?

I never would have thought this possible but now I just don’t know.

Not only remember what the man said but more importantly remember the man who said it. That such a person could rise to that rank is a travesty let alone a danger for troops and the Nation.

He was supposed to report for basic training on April 7th.

The Army discharged him between his swearing-in day, and his report date, so he is running loose somewhere among the populace.

With some luck, he may just show up on April 7th, and get arrested.

Here’s another unanswered question: with the current military draw-down, it’s a recruiter’s environment. Services can be much more picky about who they recruit, and the delay between signing the enlistment contract and shipping out to basic can be up to a year—or even longer. This guy was heading out next week, less than two months after signing his contract. Yes, you can accelerate the process by letting the service “choose your job” but in today’s environment, his departure for basic seems awfully fast.

This guy was either (a) willing to take any job the Army offered; (b) had a skill the service really wanted, or (c)blew away his ASVAB and/or had a college degree. The other possibility is the KC area recruiting battalion was behind quota and had to ship more recruits to catch up.

In any case, this one was a little too close for comfort.

Law enforcement sources familiar with the alert said it appeared to suggest that there may be others in addition to Booker who also might have expressed similar intentions to commit jihad against U.S. military installations.

No doubt. Otherwise it makes no sense. The guy was recruited in February. He was scheduled to start basic training April 7. He was interviewed by FBI agents on March 20. Discharged. Then they just...lost him? Now they're releasing no information to the public, not even a picture of the guy?

Something's up.
