Arrest in new Fort Hood terror plot

| July 28, 2011

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.

More IVAW/Abdo links;

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.

    Jerry, in #49. Good thing the BATFE wasn’t doing a sting on letting explosives walk, too.

  2. B'Emet Or says:

    @51 Me too…..standing by.

  3. UpNorth says:

    And, this is not comforting, considering the DoJ and the BATFE,and their record on all things illegal, “The U.S. Department of Justice also released a statement confirming a “suspect is in custody” and saying, “We are not aware of any further immediate threat to public safety and are actively investigating the matter.” They’re not aware? They weren’t “aware” that their own operation was selling guns to felons and letting those guns walk to Mexico, I’m positive they aren’t aware of much, at all.

  4. Oh shit TSO #56: I do think I hurt myself reading that. If nothing else I wasted part of a beer.

    It’s all okay though. Think Al Andalus.

    Yo, Jerry920, I was cutting and pasting from the cited website.

    UPDATE 2, 5:20 P.M. EDT, JULY 28: Jose Vasquez, the executive director of Iraq Veterans Against the War, tells Mother Jones that the group “had contact with Abdo three times, and he’s not a member and never has been.” After being introduced to Abdo’s story by Courage to Resist, IVAW linked a CNN story about him on its website and read a statement of his about Islamophobia at an event last October, and he appeared at an IVAW function on Fort Campbell, Ky., to support the CO status of another soldier. “If these allegations are true, this is pretty much the opposite of being a conscientious objector. Any move toward violence is against what all conscientious objectors stand for,” Vasquez said. He added that the group is committed to nonviolence and has said so in a resolution, which is linked on the IVAW website in a new statement on the Abdo arrest.

    Vasquez acknowledged that the arrest might drive conservatives to place greater scrutiny on the anti-war organization. “No matter what we say, whether we have been combat veterans or not, there’s going to be folks that are just opposed to us on principle,” he said.

    Mike- Started a new thread on that one.

    @ #60 – Conservatives hell….Law enforcement! roflmao!

  9. Crypticguise says:

    There are two types of Muslims: 1) those who completely believe that the words of Allah and Mohammed in the Koran, Sira and Hadith are TRUE today in the 21st Century, and 2) those who understand that Human Freedom and Liberty as exists in the United States of America is not compatible with Islam as “written” 1,400 years ago.

    Muslims can either choose to live their lives in the United States as Amerian Citizens or as stealth jihadists. If the latter, we must root them out and DESTROY them.

  10. Omar says:

    “As I studied Islam and Islam’s commitment to peace, I developed an entirely new perspective on war and conscience… That’s when I realized my conscience would not allow me to deploy.”

    This is duplicitous. Abdo “couldn’t” deploy because under islamic law, it is never acceptable to fight for the side of non-muslim infidels against other muslims. That applies to all muslims and all infidels. In other words, the righteousness of the conflict is not based on the actions or policies of the parties, but the religious identities of the combatants – and islam always trumps non-islam. The muslims who are able to fight for the US are either ignorant of shariah, or have partially or wholly rejected it. This is the only metric for determining whether a muslim is able to serve honestly for the United States.

    FWIW: Courage-to-Resist must have been shamed into putting back their deleted article, but they added a note.

    They also have a new item:

  12. RandyB says:

    Just for the record, Courage to Resist was definitely shamed into undeleting their article.

  13. UpNorth says:

    I doubt that IVAW would recognize a “principle” if it went off in their faces.

  14. Doc Bailey says:

    What matters the lies we tell so long as our Just Cause is triumphant?

    Sell your soul to beat your opponent, and in the end only the Devil wins.

  15. Ann says:

    It’s a good thing we didn’t have worthless brats like Abdo during WWII or we wouldn’t have had enough people in the military to make one platoon.

    He’s so full of shit. I served with several devout Muslims who had the integrity to not affiliate themselves with amoral terrorists just because they also read the Koran.

  16. Ann says:

    Abdo’s mere existence is an insult to the Muslims I served with. If he was so worried about then he should have done what this Navy Chief I knew did. He was raised a Muslim, and wanted to serve his country. He had no issue with using force as a defensive measure to protect his comrades, but wasn’t comfortable with overtly offensive work like what the infantry does. So he enlisted in the Navy, became a Corpsman, and courtesy of the insurgents love of blowing up innocent bystanders he directly aided more Muslims than what anyone could hope to manage in the States.
