Not all conscientious objectors arrested in plot to attack Ft. Hood

First, let’s take a look back to August 2010. Here’s CNN Headline News interviewing Army Pfc. Naser Abdo, an American soldier who didn’t want to be deployed to Afghanistan because he’s a Muslim:

Abdo was finally granted conscientious objector status a month ago, but then he ran into a bit of trouble when child pornography was found on his computer. He’s been AWOL for the last few weeks.

Guess what happened then? Fox News reports:

At least one U.S. military serviceman has been arrested in connection with an alleged plot to attack Fort Hood nearly two years after a deadly shooting rampage at the base, Fox News has learned exclusively.

Pvt. Naser Jason Abdo, an AWOL soldier from Fort Campbell, Kentucky, was arrested by the Killeen Police Department near Fort Hood and remains in custody there.

Abdo, 21, was found with weapons, explosives and jihadist materials at the time of his arrest, a senior Army source confirms to Fox News. He was arrested at around 2 p.m. Wednesday after someone called authorities to report a suspicious individual.

Eric Vasys, a spokesman with the FBI’s San Antonio Office, said authorities found firearms and bomb making components, which he described as smokeless gun powder, inside Abdo’s motel room. Sources also say Abdo was attempting to make a purchase at Guns Galore in Killeen, the same ammunition store where Major Nidal Hasan purchased weapons that were allegedly used to gun down 13 people and wound 30 others on Nov. 5, 2009.

Law enforcement officials suspect Abdo was planning an attack in or around Ft. Hood, though they say the exact target is not clear.

As tempting as it might be to point fingers, we all owe it to ourselves as Americans to avoid casting blame on the conscientious-objector community at large. We’re better than that, people.

    Conscientious Objectors have no damn business in the military in the first place. This is like a Vegan applying for work as a burger flipper, then declaring his moral objection when asked to actually do his job. This muslim idiot didn’t know we’ve been at war in the middle east for the last umpteen years? Bull. This was his plan all along. You don’t join the military and then claim you morally object to fighting. When I think of all the brave Japanese, German, Italian, Korean, Vietnamese and Russian Americans who fought ever harder, with ever more patriotic devotion whether drafted or volunteering – just to prove their loyalty to their beloved home, the United States – scum like Abdo are to me, beneath contempt. This murderous boy should not have been anywhere near our troops. I shutter to imagine what added mischief this mad zealot may have been plotting against any openly gay troops as well. How many people have to suffer and die before we realize that political correctness in the military is suicide? We cannot have internecine fighting among our troops due to the conflicting special needs of this or that identity group. Just look at the madness in US airports due to the inability of the Left to use common sense over their infantile, irrational ideology. Leftism is deadly.

      Well said. Well said.

  • truebearing

    What horrible news for the left. How can they be expected do their job as the Public Relations arm for the Muslim Brotherhood when these Sharia compliant, peace loving Muslims keep getting caught trying to kill American troops…. or watching child pornography?

    Even the practised liars and professional weasels on the left can only deny so much.

    • ChickFight

      Hey Pal! Try some cultural sensitivity, will ya? The Prophet [poop be upon him] liked ‘em young too! Abdo was only following the magnificent M’s putrid example in the spirit of freedom of religion and whatnot. But those military Chaplains better not object to marrying those gay troops, or there’ll be heck to pay! Heck I tells ya!

  • irwinhandleman

    remember that time you did a headline like this and were completely wrong and looked like an idiot? yeah, that was funny.

    • BarkhornXX

      You back again nitwit?

      • Jim Treacher

        It’s okay. If Brian wants to gloat over the mass murder of almost 100 people, that’s his business.

        • partymanrandy

          Cut him some slack. There was a mass murder that wasn’t committed by one of the left’s pet groups. It was the highlight of his life, thus far. Let him have this one.

    • Jim Treacher

      Brian is dedicated to protecting the rights of conscientious objectors.

      • truebearing

        I see him as more of an unconscionable obscurantist

    • truebearing

      Irwin,

      You look like an idiot frequently, and not because you base your comments on mainstream media news reports.

      I’ll bet you’re really angry at this latest Muslim terrorist….for getting caught and reminding everyone of reality. He’s ruining your opportunity for anti-Christian propaganda!

      Damn Muslims and their incessant terrorism! They won’t even stop long enough for their US PR department to gin up some false equivalencies to smear conservatives with. It’s hard being a leftist, trying so hard to make good look bad, and evil look like the victim. If only the jihadists would do what the left wants them to do, “Don’t kill any troops while we’re Alinskyizing the Christians”. But do they listen? No!

      Oh, and I’ll bet you’re really upset that he planned to kill our servicemen, too.

    • zelda

      OMG! That was so funny! Because 100 people including 60 children are dead and Muslims didn’t do it, even though they said they did!

    • Sean M.

      Remember the time when the mayor of New York blamed a plot to kill lots of people in Times Square on someone who was upset about Obamacare? That was pretty funny, too.

      Also, remember when all sorts of media figures blamed the Tuscon shootings on right wingers in general and Sarah Palin in particular? Laff Riot right (no pun intended) there!

      And, hey, there was the whole thing where Not All Muslims shot and killed a bunch of people at that same Ft. Hood while shouting “Allahu Akbar!!!” and we were cautioned against assuming that Islamist ideology had anything to do with it.

      I know that I sure had a chuckle over that one.

      (Not the shootings, I should take pains to point out.)

      • zelda

        60 dead children is only funny when a Muslim isn’t responsible.

    • esby

      You can’t criticize Sean for exploiting a tragedy for political gain, or he’ll accuse you of exploiting a tragedy for political gain. The hypocrisy is breathtakingly funny.

      Oh, new blog name idea: The Daily Dredger.

      • Jim Treacher

        Whereas esby can’t seem to refute a point without proving it.

        • esby

          The fact that you keep falling back on weak points is comedy gold.

          Whether you are perceived to care or not isn’t even on the radar. It’s just that you keep doubling down on the lowest common denominator of conservatism and it’s so darn entertaining. Tea Patriots must be falling off their Medicare scooters.

          • Jim Treacher

            The fact that you refer to your opinions as “facts” is equally amusing.

          • esby

            The fact that you refer to your opinion of my opinion as a fact is equally amusing. There’s that darn double standard again.

            But hey: the most amusing blog in D.C.

          • Jim Treacher

            It’s a fact that you referred to your opinion as a “fact,” esby. If your memory is really that bad, just scroll up.

            Once again, you refute a point by proving it…

          • irwinhandleman

            i love how all jim’s readers are now pretending to not understand simple sentences. you’ve really learned from the master. bravo on the mock outrage.

            hey partyman, you never gave me an answer, how’s that blog of yours coming along?

          • Jim Treacher

            I love how angry Brian is whenever he comments here. I’d say it interferes with his thinking, but so far he hasn’t provided any instances of thought for purposes of comparison.

  • mojo

    That will be an interesting court-martial. I wonder if they’ll do him for desertion before or after the Jihadi charges?

  • zelda

    So he conscientiously objects to killing terrorists in the name of his religion, but not molesting children.

    • Caleb Herod

      Or killing infidels. Some conscience! If Christians have Jimminy Cricket, who do Muslims have?

      • zelda

        Well they had Farfur the Micky-like Mouse, but that was before he was martyred by the Jews.

  • Caleb Herod

    Let’s see… He’s 21, we resumed the war with Iraq in 2003, so either (a) he was 13 when he enlisted or (b) he converted to Islam after he enlisted or (c) he enlisted as a pretense to kill infidels for their unholy war on Islam. I’m probably missing other possibilities.

  • BarkhornXX

    Whew! For about a week there I worried that we were entering a cycle of radical right wing Christian violence.

    The event described above assures me that we are still in the seemingly never ending cycle of radical Islamist violence. So…business as usual.
