Another soldier was arrested in a new terror plot against the Fort Hood facility – the largest US military post according to Fox News;
Pvt. Nasser Jason Abdo, an AWOL soldier from Fort Campbell, Kentucky, was arrested by the Killeen Police Department near Fort Hood and remains in custody there. Authorities, however, will not say if Abdo is the one who raised security concerns.
Bob Jenkins, a Fort Campbell spokesman, told Fox News that Abdo was being investigated for child pornography found on his government computer.
Abdo went AWOL on July 4. On the eve of his first deployment to Afghanistan — after only one year in the Army — Abdo applied for conscientious objector status. It was denied by his superiors at Ft. Campbell but later overturned by the Assistant Deputy Secretary of the Army review board.
Another source told Fox News that two other U.S. soldiers also raised possible concerns. Authorities have recovered weapons and possibly explosive materials, Fox News was told.
I’m sure someone in the Under the Hood Cafe knows this guy – a perfect candidate for Iraq Veterans Against the War. Stormbringer just wrote about him the other day when Abdo was just an AWOL conscientious objector – before he became a terror suspect.
I think Sporkmaster sent me something about him a few months ago.
Here’s a video I found of a guy who makes some good points, and prophetically predicts that Abdo could become another Nidal Hassan;
ADDED:. I just discovered that I did write about him – he was one of Branum’s clients and funding raising schemes (I was at someone’s wedding when I wrote it – that’s why I forgot). TSO also wrote about him.
Added again: I just found this online about an anti-war press conference in NYC where IVAW members read a statement from Abdo on Islamophobia;
Isn’t a phobia an irrational fear? Well if Abdo is found to have been part of a terror plot, I guess he wasn’t experiencing an irrational fear.
And isn’t that an IVAW member in the center of the picture of the press conference? I think i recognize her from somewhere.

A CNN interview with Abdo when he was just a CO, before he became an accused terrorist;
Update from Reuters; Apparently he had bomb-making materials;
Nassar was arrested around 2 p.m. local time on Wednesday after a “concerned citizen” reported that he had firearms and smokeless gunpowder in his motel room in Killeen, Vasys said.
“A search of his motel room revealed that he had some components which could be considered bomb-making materials,” Vasys said.
ADDED Again: I guess the reason he went AWOL is because while he was waiting for his CO application to process, they found kiddie pr0n on his government computer. Smart. No one is watching government computers.
If anyone out there knows the ID of the other two guys who were arrested in connection to this incident, we’d sure like to know…especially if they’re connected to Under the Hood. We’ll keep your identity out of it. We keep all of our ninja’s identities secret. Even our LEO tipsters…hint, hint.
I’m just guessing but it looks like a conscientious objector who went AWOL from Fort Campbell, a native of Dallas was being aided and abetted by IVAW members at the famous-for-supporting-resisters Under the Hood Cafe in Killeen. of course, I have no real evidence of this, but why else would he go to Killeen, if not to take advantage of UtH’s sympathy. I hope they corral the whole bunch of them.
