Several hours after being taken into custody, Yonathan Melaku has been identified as the suspect arrested in Arlington Cemetery earlier today. He is a Muslim and a Marine Corps reservist.

The decorated Marine reservist lurking in Arlington National Cemetery who prompted a bomb scare near the Pentagon on Friday morning has been determined not to be a public threat. Fort Myer police spotted and initially detained Yonathan Melaku, 22, of Alexandria, in the cemetery around 1:30 a.m., well past the normal closing time, the FBI said in a statement on the case. Melaku, a lance corporal in the Marine Corps reserves, was carrying a backpack that the FBI said “contained unknown materials which initially caused public safety concerns.”

Who ever sold it to him or gave it to him wanted to see the response for it. Call it a terrorist dry-run.
Of course, just my humble opinion, but I'll bet there was some soiled shorts in D.C. for a while.

Diane Sawyer, ABC News is calling him a "22 year old marine lance corporal" Though they did say he was an ethiopian-american.
Not muslim though.

*winner winner chicken dinner*

Further depressed now.

I personally have not abused a chicken for quite some time. So I think I'm safe there.


I might stay up and watch CBS Nightly News as well. It's after 1 in the morning here, but what the heck. I'm going for 3, that's right, 3 networks that will not say the M-word.

Well, CBS didn't even feel that it should merit a story. I don't understand. A muslim terrorist attempts an attack (dry run or not) and it gets no airtime?

Darth Obama; "These are Not the terrorists you've been looking for."

Nice try, MSM, but we have the intraweb.

back during the fort hood shooting the mainstream media neglected his connections to radical islam or his faith

its just par for the course.

What is going on with the military? Aren't they checking people who are enlisting/joining our military? We're getting a deeper screen to step on an intra-COTUS flight.

It's easier to join the U.S. military as a foreigner, than it is for a U.S. citizen to hop a flight from Phoenix to San Diego these days. (TIC - kinda)

You crack me up and right you are!
Star at ya!

I wonder if a 'true' Muslim, you know the 'peaceful' kind the media says that follow 'true Islam', would think like this reservist or is he a 'true' Muslim?

It's already a known fact that the Koran says it's okay to lie and decieve for the forward progression of Islam and if everyone who is Muslim adheres to the teachings of the Koran, then it should be well within reason that they're all liars and decievers.

S & F to the OP!
Very serious issue here.

Do you have a quote from the Koran stating that? Islam is a peaceful religion in and of itself but add crazy to any religion and you have problems, just look at some christians.

Honestly I don't see how this marines religion matters, he is an american marine and a traitor. What matters beyond that?
