    Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo, after raising suspicions at a Killeen, Texas, gun shop where he purchased six pounds of gunpowder and several boxes of shotgun shells, was in police custody in Killeen on Thursday, accused of plotting to kill fellow soldiers in a frightening reprise of the November 2009 massacre at Fort Hood. Abdo, 21, who grew up in Garland outside of Dallas, was close to pulling off a "terror plot" in which the intended target was troops based at Fort Hood, said Killeen Police Chief Dennis Baldwin. "We would probably be here today giving you a different briefing had...

    WACO, Texas (Reuters) - Army soldier Naser Jason Abdo shouted the name of a military psychiatrist accused of a 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, during his first appearance in court on Friday on a charge related to an alleged terror plot. Abdo, 21, was formally charged with illegal possession of a firearm two days after his arrest in a Killeen, Texas, motel room in possession of suspected bomb-making materials. "Abeer Qassim al-Janabi Iraq 2006; Nidal Hasan, Fort Hood, 2009," Abdo shouted at the media as he was led out of the Waco courtroom. The name Al-Janabi refers to...

    AWOL Soldier Arrested in What Police Say Was New Fort Hood Terror Plot An Army private has been arrested in connection with an alleged plot to attack Fort Hood soldiers that authorities suggest was close to being carried out. The arrest, first reported by Fox News, comes nearly two years after a deadly shooting rampage at the base. Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo, an AWOL soldier from Fort Campbell in Kentucky, was arrested by the Killeen, Texas, Police Department near Fort Hood and remains in custody at the Killeen jail. Abdo, 21, was found with weapons, explosives and jihadist materials at...

    The November 5, 2009 shooting rampage by the cowardly Muslim Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan was wakeup call that has become an example of why America made a grave error in electing Barack Hussein Obama. Hasan murdered 13 innocent people. All but one were soldiers either just returning from theaters of war or preparing to deploy to combat areas. One of the dead soldiers was pregnant. The remaining victim was an Army civilian employee. Hassan’s guilt is indisputable.

    The Army said Wednesday that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, accused of killing 13 people in a rampage on Fort Hood in 2009, will face the death penalty. Lt. Gen. Donald Campbell Jr., the post's commander, ordered a capital murder trial after reviewing recommendations from an Army colonel who presided over an evidentiary hearing last year. Fort Hood's action sets the stage for a trial that most likely will take place in about a year. While Campbell ordered a court-martial that allows prosecutors to seek the death penalty, Hasan must still be arraigned and a judge selected. In addition to being...

    We have been hearing for years that the White House is withholding evidence on the Fort Hood jihadi, Major Nidal Malik Hasan. Now comes direct confirmation of this from Hasan's own lawyer. Major Hasan, also known as Soldier of Allah, according to his business card, mowed down thirteen U.S. soldiers while screaming Allahu akbar on the Fort Hood military base in Texas a year and a half ago, in November 2009. Yet his trial keeps on being postponed. On March 30, Lt. Gen. Robert Cone, the outgoing commanding general at Fort Hood, granted a request from John Galligan, Hasan's lawyer,...

Here’s a recap of some of the latest developments. Fort Hood Shooter’s Gun One of the guns used by Hasan was a FN Herstal 5.7 semiautomatic pistol. This fact is significant because it adds to the growing body of evidence that Mexican Cartels are working with Islamist terrorists. In return for smuggling them over our borders, Islamist terrorists are teaching the Cartels how to make effective IEDs. These guns are a favorite shopping list...

    One year ago I noted that: "All three major domestic terror attacks of 2009 were directly enabled by Obama's reverse-profiling orders, exempting Muslims from scrutiny." First was the shooting of two soldiers at a Little Rock Army recruiting office. Shortly after Obama ordered our intelligence agencies to "back off" from investigating black Muslims, a black Muslim who had previously been under surveillance killied one soldier and critically wounded another. The case of the Christmas 2009 "underwear bomber" indicates that Obama's "back off" command extended to ALL Muslims. According to one State Department employee, watch-list monitors were: "encouraged to not create...

He was "a chronic poor performer," who often failed to show up for work and was often on probation. His program director considered him "very lazy" and "a religious fanatic."

The short answer: we can’t. We overlook it. We pass the buck....

The ruling by a group of medical experts, called a sanity board, opens the door for a court martial that could end in the execution of Major Nidal Hasan, who was paralyzed from the neck down during the November 5, 2009 massacre. Neither prosecutors nor retired Army Colonel John Galligan, a veteran military lawyer representing Hasan, 40, would confirm the board's decision.

It comes shortly after authorities intercepted air cargo bombs sent from Yemen to the US in a plot linked to Mr Awlaki. Investigators have linked Mr Awlaki to the US army base killings in Fort Hood, Texas, last year's Christmas airline bomb attempt, and the failed Times Square bombing in New York.

FORT HOOD (November 5, 2010)—Few physical reminders remain of the shooting rampage a year ago at Fort Hood’s Soldier Readiness Center that left 12 soldiers and a civilian dead and dozens of others injured, but separate ceremonies Friday on post will pay tribute to the victims and will honor 54 soldiers and civilians whose actions went beyond the call of...

    FORT HOOD — Like everyone in the first moments of the mass shooting here one year ago today, Chief Warrant Officer 2 Christopher Royal was stunned beyond belief. Many of those sitting in rows of fold-out chairs at Station 13 were war veterans, but only a few like Royal fought back as the shooting ensued. They went into survival mode as the gunman methodically fired into the crowd. Talking with a counselor near the crowded waiting area of the post deployment center, Royal heard gunfire and told a shaken worker it was an exercise. “Shortly after that, two soldiers, one...

    Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan deserves the death penalty for perpetrating the Nov. 5, 2009, Fort Hood massacre. He has earned this penalty not only for the scale of his crime - the worst domestic attack on a military installation in American history, killing 13 and wounding 32 - but also for the purposeful way he planned and executed the assault, his jihadist motives and for the fundamental betrayal of the trust placed in him as an officer in the United States Army. Witness testimony at the ongoing Article 32 hearings in a military court at Fort Hood paints a...

    In the weeks before the deadly Fort Hood rampage, an Army psychiatrist repeatedly visited a firing range to hone his skills with his new laser-equipped semiautomatic handgun by shooting at the heads on silhouette targets, witnesses told a military hearing Thursday. Maj. Nidal Hasan bought an FN 5.7 semiautomatic handgun on Aug. 1, a few weeks after he entered the store and made "an interesting request ... for the most high-tech weapon we had," said Fredrick Brannon, a former Guns Galore employee. He said Hasan seemed to have little knowledge of guns at that point. The Article 32 hearing will...

    Nurse: 3 soldiers unafraid facing Fort Hood gunman Oct 19 01:37 PM US/Eastern By ANGELA K. BROWN FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - Three young soldiers showed no fear and didn't try to hide in the face of certain death as a lone gunman approached them during a deadly shooting rampage at Fort Hood, a civilian nurse testified at a military hearing Tuesday. "All three of these kids just stood their ground. They didn't flinch. They weren't afraid of him," Theodore Coukoulis told the Article 32 hearing. "All three looked directly at the shooter. They were looking at death and they...

    FORT HOOD, Texas — A pregnant soldier shot during a rampage at a Texas Army post last year cried out, "My baby! My baby!" as others crawled under desks, dodged bullets that pierced walls and rushed to help their bleeding comrades, a military court heard Monday. A soldier had just told Spc. Jonathan Sims that she was expecting a baby and was preparing to go home, when the first volley of gunfire rang out Nov. 5 in a Fort Hood building where soldiers get medical tests before and after deploying.

    The Article 32 proceeding (the military equivalent of a grand jury investigation in anticipation of an indictment) is underway for Maj. Nidal Hasan. You’ll recall him as the jihadist the military won’t call a jihadist, having assiduously averted its eyes from the fact that he was a jihadist before his terrorist murder of 13 American soldiers and wounding of numerous others — acts the military, taking its cue from the commander-in-chief, will not refer to as terrorism. From the Associated Press report on yesterday’s hearing [thanks to Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch] comes this mind-blowing detail, buried at the bottom...

    A soldier says he shot cell phone video during last year's Fort Hood deadly rampage but that an officer ordered him to delete the footage. Under cross examination Friday, Pfc. Lance Aviles has told a military court that he deleted the two videos at the direction of his NCO on the same day as the shooting, Nov. 5. Friday is the third full day of testimony at the Article 32 hearing to decide if Maj. Nidal Hasan, the 40-year-old American-born Muslim charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder at Fort Hood, should stand...

    FORT HOOD, Texas – A soldier who recorded the terror of last year's deadly shooting rampage in Fort Hood using his cell phone was ordered by an officer to delete both videos, a military court heard Friday. Under cross examination, Pfc. Lance Aviles told an Article 32 hearing that his noncommissioned officer ordered him to destroy the two videos on Nov. 5, the same day that a gunman unleashed a volley of bullets inside a processing center at the Texas Army post. The footage could have been vital evidence at the military hearing to decide if Maj. Nidal Hasan should...

    The pop-pop-pop of gunfire, groans of a dying soldier and wailing from terrified survivors riveted a military courtroom Wednesday as Army prosecutors played a 911 tape of last November's massacre at a soldier-readiness center. Eight witnesses gave graphic descriptions of the chaos unleashed when Army Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire in the worst attack ever on an American military installation. Several recalled hearing a shout of "Allahu akbar," or "God is great," just before the melee began. "I looked at [Hasan] and was wondering, 'Why would he say Allahu akbar?' " testified the first prosecution witness, Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford....
