Another Ft. Hood attack thwarted

Nothing more to say, really, I guess. Via ABC,
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 30 others on Nov. 5, 2009.

Abdo, 21, allegedly told law enforcement he was targeting the base to "get even," according to law enforcement documents obtained by ABC News. The soldier had gone AWOL from Fort Campbell's 101st Airborne Division over the July 4 weekend, according to a senior military officer.

IVAW liked the guy. Shocking, I know.

UltimaRatioRegis said...

Is he a far-right Christian?  Can we make that assumption and begin discussions about his "religion" and politics being a danger to freedom? 

xbradtc said...

This isn't Abdo's first run in with the authorities. He's the guy that SecArmy approved for Concientious Objector status based solely on the fact that he was Muslim (one of the dumber decisions around).

Crap. Buried the lede. 

He's wanted on child porn charges.

As we continue to celebrate "Diversity Thursday."  (Someone got a two-fer there, right??)

Hooray diversity!  (showering my keyboard with paperclips in his honor.)  /sarc

Hush.  You're not supposed to judge someone's sexual tendencies.  Haven't you been to your DADT briefing?

ewok40k said...

At least somebody did their work this time in the police/intel community...
btw, it is supreme stupidity to use the shop where last one attack was supplied...
I am wondering myself, why in 1940s Nisei would fight for their new country despite having families interned, while today's "diversity force" comes up with such "gems".

Relax DB's not accussing any homosexuals of anything but making light of stupid political decissions forced upon the military by political officers (i thought only the Communist needed those?) and politicans.

Brilliant plan!  He'll be spending the next 20+ years in custody of Uncle Sam.  He's sure to be a popular prisoner when the topic of why-are-you-here arises.  AMF!

Maybe he and Bradley "Optimal" Manning can console each other late at night. 

Casey Tompkins said...

Actually, the crack about wedding night photos over at B5 was kinda funny...

Salty Gator said...

URR, there is so much win in your comment.....

Salty Gator said...

Actually...... There is an ongoing struggle within ACLU leadership as to whether or not they should represent NAMBLA and other child exploitation advocacy organizations.  NAMBLA ramblas about how they are "born that way" just like "homosexuals."  Their argument is that just as homosexuality is being legitimized, legalized, endorsed and protected, so should they and their perversions.

Salty Gator said...

sorry, no.  He is in fact a muslim.  Sad.  That part of course is being left out of the story.  They'll mention his Christian mom but not his muslim father or the fact that he resents christians because he feels that they look down on him.  Oh, and he refuses to fight against other muslims.

UltimaRatioRegis said...

You can find child psychologists in sufficient quantity to express the opinion that forcing young boys to have sex with grown men is actually helpful in their development. 

Don't believe it?  Look around the seamier side of this-here internet.  There have been a large number of lawsuits regarding people who want to be teachers, etc., who have been "discriminated against" because their proclivity toward such behavior is known.   And yes, they are "as God made them".

That will be the push that follows transsexuals.

UltimaRatioRegis said...

He is a MUSLIM?!?!?!?!  Why aren't there headlines to the effect that "Fort Hood plotter shines light on Muslim terrorist threat"?

John said...

I guess for the Muslims, any "Conscientous Objector" rejection of violence only applies to other Muslims, but not to infdels.

Well done to the folks who decided he was acting strange and did something in time to stop him!

Uh, were TSA or Homeland Security involved in that...?

DeltaBravo said...

I think it was Military and local police cooperation.

Convene field tribunal. Follow through immediately on sentence.   

andrewdb said...

<span>No, I don't see that coming.  What I see coming is finally judging people, who have already been serving, on their performance and character, rather then stereotypes.  Finally, instead of having to lie about what should be the most important person in their life, they can answer a question about what they did on a weekend.
 
After all these years on this board I am absolutely shocked that you would seriously equate being gay with being a pedophile or with kiddie pr0n.  I am deeply disapointed in you (and you too, URR).</span>

DeltaBravo said...

Wow you really missed the point.  It was an acerbic comment about us not being allowed to have an opinion against his sexual preference toward kiddie porn because of Navy edicts about "discrimination" and "diversity."  But you choose in this as in everything to make it personal.

We really don't know what kind of porn this guy is involved with.  If it's little boy porn, I hate to inform you the vast portion of that is trafficked by GAY MEN.  (You might figure not many women are into child porn).   Sorry to draw a conclusion there you don't like. 

A word to the wise... in September when you finally are allowed to go on and on about your fantastic weekend with the man you love... do yourself a favor.  Don't.  I'm sure everyone around you has already guessed by now.  They don't want to hear it out loud every Monday morning. 

Why do I get the feeling if someone gave a deep sigh and rolled their eyes you'd be down at HR with a complaint before your coffee was cold?

It all started when we let women vote.

They had the gun store owner on Fox this morning.  He was the initial tip off.  It seemed the young man did not know what he was buying, but buying it in great quantities.  It raised the former cop's BS flag, so he called it in and said that it seemed a bit strange.  The magic happened after that. 

LT B said...

I missed that one.

UltimaRatioRegis said...

I am sure the reward in store for that gun owner is to have BATFE run a sting operation to see if he filled out some paperwork incorrectly, so they can blame him for Mexico's drug violence, shut him down, and possibly send him to prison...

UltimaRatioRegis said...

Andrew, I DO see that coming.  While you may think this is about performance and character, I see it following the now well-worn path of having their particular lifestyle championed over mine, them getting special preference because of it, and me expressing any objection I might have toward it or that favoritism being punishable as a crime with dire consequences personally and professionally. 

So please, save the "disappointed" stuff.

When DB quits denigrating me, I'll be polite to her. When she wants gay people to be seen and not heard, the same should be true for her. Back to the kitchen, and make me some sweet tea. You know, where women belong. It's a straight mans world after all.

UltimaRatioRegis said...

Hey Guest, especially if you are a heterosexual WHITE male, you would be the only person for which there has not been a set of laws, codes, and regulations championing your rights over someone else's. 

Will I ever be the victim of a hate crime?  Even if I were brutally murdered?  Nope.  Why not?  Wrong color/gender/sexual preference. 

So save your "straight man's world" crap for your special interest group advocates.

Salty Gator said...

Guest, you are an idiot.  Pick your ruffled panties out of their bunch and stop and think for a second.  What argument is being made to justify the policy changes?  What are the potential second and third order effects?  Is this a genie that will shift political and legal paradigms to realms that NOBODY wants them to go?  Arguably, the answer is YES.  But you can't see past that.

If you really cared about the military, you and your ilk would couch the argument in such a way that did the minimal disruption.  Instead, you are displaying all of the finesse of a MOAB.  But that really is the homosexual advocacy community's way, isn't it?  "We're loud, we're proud, we're dancing around in pink thongs but hey we're family friendly we deserve equal everything, let us adopt children and teach your kids about what we do in the bedroom!"

For two seconds stop.  Think.  How did Martin Luther King win the civil rights arugment?  Oh yeah, that's right.  They dressed up in their Sunday Best and marched as the ladies and gentlemen that they were, demonstrated that they were and deserved to be treated like equals.

Salty Gator said...

Thank God we have TSA to pat down toddlers and wheel chair bound old ladies...without them we'd have never stopped this horrific attack!

i can just see the next major question:

how to stencil name and serial number in "ruffled panties" so that the ships laundry does not blow buttons through them.

Poor you, you don't have to deal with being beat up because your holding your wife's hand, and you don't have to deal with people accusing you of child molestation. I fell for you, I really do. It must be horrible.

Anonymous said...

Byron, are you sure it's not that all gay people are child molesters and want to talk about the details of gay sex at work? Oh, that's right when you agree with the prejudice it's ok, but when you don't, it's insulting. Hint, all prejudice is dumb, as it comes from ignorance. Thank you for demonstrating the point.

UltimaRatioRegis said...

"<span>you don't have to deal with being beat up because your holding your wife's hand"</span>

Depending on the neighborhood I am in, it could be much worse than that, couldn't it?  Because my skin is the wrong color.   

Or, I can be accused of being a potential rapist

And not considered for advancement or promotion because we have too many of my kind, despite my qualifications or merits. 

So yeah, it's a hoot.  Go cry to the ACLU.

Gheyest...

Call it prejudice if you want, but how come Ghey Pride has to be ALL about showing your ass and sex in public (shall I post more from "Belmont on the Rocks"?)?

Clean up Prideful act before if you wish to be taken seriously.

Aubrey said...

The simple fact is child molesters are scum.  Rapists are scum.  Let's establish that from the get-go.

Now, most rapists are heterosexual and male...but anyone who uses that fact to say that most male heterosexuals are rapists is not only an idiot, but is as scummy as the rapist himself.

The same thing applies to child molesters - while many may be male and homosexual*, there can be no inference that that means most male homosexuals are child molesters.  That would be equally as stupid and wrong as the above statement about "normal" rapists.


*I have no idea of the breakdown between male and female victims or male/female perpetrators, and to be blunt I don't want to know - but I don't think victimizing a kid has anyhting to do with being male or female, hetero or homo, it has everything to do with being completely f---ed up.

<span>You damn yourself for the "poor pity me" troll by being offended by the insults of straight people and instead of hold your head high you in turn devolve into insulting yourself. You don't know me, so you don't know what my attitudes towards people who aren't "like" me (whatever that is, I thought we were all people of God)). You assume that I am not only prejudiced against gays but will also make derogatory statements about them. Doing so merely insures that everyone will take you for a bitter fool instead of a sensible individual.</span>
<span></span>
<span>Last, but not least, don't dis the ladies here. They are in good standing with the members with the Bar and us Cro-Magnon types take a very dim view of people not treating them like the ladies they are. So go away and cry on the shoulders of whatever bunch of self-apologists you hang with. I'd wish you luck, but you'd find a way to screw that up too.</span>

What does DADT have to do with child porn?

ewok40k said...

Seriously though, local police and citizens are first line of defence in such cases...
The scene from the original Terminator movie where Arnie walks into weapons store  and demands all sorts of stuff up to "28-watt plasma rifle" played on my minds eye theather when i've read the news...
Also there is some paradigm shift from bomb terror to gun terror going on, look at Bombay, Oslo (where bomb was mere decoy to main shooting), previous Fort Hood incident...  It is not that bomb threat is going away, but it isnt sole or even main modus operandi.

DeltaBravo said...

That was discussed yesterday.  Someone did some porch sweepin' last night.  I ain't sayin' nuthin' about it anymore.  Reread James's comment a few times.

If they didn't pat down old ladies and babies, that's where the terrorists would put the bombs.
