Nidal Malik Hasan, the Army psychiatrist accused of killing 13 people at Fort Hood, Tex., in November, and then to Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian man charged with trying to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner on Dec. 25.

He sounds like a bad guy. My opinion he worked for one to the Intelligence agencies off the books. His time in New Mexico is all within reach of White Sands, Alamogordo (Holloman AFB), Los Alamos, and a host of other camps. Juarez is not really know for a secure border.
