Note from Dave Gaubatz: The below article was written by Los Angeles AP on 25 May 2012. One has to wonder why this has not made national news. Isn't a planned suicide bombing attack by a Muslim U.S. soldier significant news the public would be interested in?
Indeed it is, but if the Main Stream Media were to widely distribute this planned suicide attack it would cause Americans to question the true meaning of Islam itself. The last thing President Obama and his Administration want is for anything to make MSM news which reflects badly on Islam even if it could bring awareness to Americans and possibly thwart other attacks.
Los Angeles- An AWOL Muslim soldier was convicted Thursday (24 May 2012) of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction on a Texas restaurant full of Ft. Hood troops, a verdict that could send him to prison for life.
A federal jury also found Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo, 22, guilty of all other charges against him: one count of attempted murder of U.S. officers or employees and four counts of possessing a weapon in furtherance of a federal crime, U.S. Attorney Robert Pitman said.
Abdo was absent without leave from Ft. Campbell, KY, when police found and arrested him in a motel in Killeen, TX, in July. Officers found components for an explosive device in his room and backpack and concluded that Abdo was intending to commit mass murder.
"It's important to note that this plot was interrupted and a potential tragedy prevented because an alert citizen notified law enforcement of suspicious activity," Pitman said.
Testimony during Abdo's trial revealed that he intended to detonate the destructive device inside an unspecified restaurant frequented by soldiers from Ft. Hood.
