Police have arrested one person in Killeen, Texas, for "suspicious activity" near Fort Hood, the military base where a 2009 shooting spree killed 13 people and wounded 32 others, according to a law enforcement official.

The FBI is involved in an investigation, the official told CNN.

Already a few sources popping up.

Apparently an AWOL soldier was arrested near Fort Hood with explosives.


EXCLUSIVE: AWOL Soldier Arrested Over Concerns of Possible Second Attack On Fort Hood

At least one U.S. military serviceman has been arrested after raising concerns over another possible attack on Fort Hood, Fox News has learned exclusively. Pvt. Nasser Jason Abdo, an AWOL soldier from Fort Campbell, Kentucky, was arrested by the Killeen Police Department near Fort Hood and remains in custody there. Authorities, however, will not say if Abdo is the one who raised security concerns. Abdo was allegedly found with 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.

Story changes every time I click on a link.. must be hot off the wires.

The first story I saw had all the buzz words such as "Jihadist Materials" etc., but the wording is different in the time it took me to re-check the page.

AWOL soldier with ammo, pressure cooker, arrested near Fort Hood


FBI agents searching the soldier's hotel room found gunpowder, shotgun shells, a pressure cooker, 18 pounds of sugar, four magazines and ammunition, the defense official said. The FBI is investigating the case.



Abdo refused to deploy to Iraq on grounds of his religion and had put in the paperwork to be discharged as a conscientious objector. The Army approved his request, but he was then charged with child pornography and went AWOL, the official said. "We have two things that I believe make us American, and that's freedom of religion and freedom of choice," he said in an interview last year. He said he had to remain true to Islam.

Within the hour they will begin to spin that this gent, Nasser Abdo has no ties to any Muslim organization, that he has other grievances that caused him to do this (or attempt to).

A few hours from now it will be reported that he's a radicalized Muslim, with on-line rants, attendance at radical mosques and that he was on the radar for some time.

Nope. They'll call him an extremist/domestic terrorist/christian fundamentalist/right wing/conservative who once drove through a state where a Tea Party rally was once held.

Its exactly what he talked about on Alex Jones show recently, so that they cover all bases, he will be reported as both of what you said, then one gets dropped, but its already planted in the sub-concious.

Hey OP check the local ft hood news on this there are conflicting stories out there and the MSM ran with this one. REmember that nowdays a trained baboon could be a reporter....

*edit* there was a source only reporting he was arrested for child porn charges....no mention of ammo, explosives, ect. We shall see. I would suspect that since he stated was remaining true to islam by refusing deployment that he would have to attempt to kill some infadels to be 100% true to his religion.

I think a lot of this is to occupy the now vast numbers of white people out of work across the western world, rather than looking into things we shouldnt be.

All these so called terrorist attcks recently in Norway, something going on in Poland today too, and now this as an attach against the military, is by the looks the rise of the fourth reich.

There will be a movement towards right wing policies across the western world, and what comes of it I dont know, but they dont want peace, and they need the vast number of white men occupied somehow.

actually anybody with a little training, half a brain cell, and a little motivation can be an "effective" terrorist. MAybe we should stop letting terrorists become soldiers because in sure this guy didnt turn "terrorist" directly after joining the army....and on top of potential murderous ambitions he is a sick pervert to boot with the child porn thing...there he goes again following his religion of peace.

If it is the same soldier, he had been granted conscientious objector. He supposedly ran because he was found in possession of child pornography. Which is interesting considering porn was found in the Bin Laden compound, right? Maybe it was coded? Who knows? Glad they found him.

Here's the local story. Army: Muslim soldier opposed to war is AWOL


Posted by Scott Sutton - email LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Army says a Muslim soldier from Fort Campbell who won conscientious objector status but then was charged with possessing child pornography has gone AWOL. Spokesman Rick Rzepka said Wednesday that Pfc. Naser Abdo has been absent without leave since the July 4th weekend. Abdo, a 21-year-old infantry soldier, had applied for conscientious objector status last year saying his Muslim beliefs prohibited his service in any war. Army officials recommended he be discharged as a conscientious objector but that was delayed by the criminal charge. Rzepka said a hearing last month recommended Abdo face a court-martial on the pornography charge. Abdo's attorney James Branum said his client is safe but declined to say more about his status. Abdo now also faces additional charges related to being AWOL.

Flipping through the satellite channels here, I just caught Aljazeera saying that he was asking how to make explosives when he was in the gun store.

Also, why would an AWOL, conscientious objector be buying a uniform anyway?

Lets see, he is a private in the Army so I can assume that he joined recently. Why did he join the military if he did not want to go to war? Listen people, if you cannot or will not kill an enemy of the US, you have no business wasting time in my military!

If your religion prevents you from protecting my freedom, don't waste my tax dollars by joining the military!

Update:

Official: Soldier wanted to attack Fort Hood troops

(CNN) -- An AWOL Muslim American Army private arrested near Fort Hood, Texas, told investigators that he wanted to attack fellow soldiers outside Fort Hood, two law enforcement officials said Thursday.



After Abdo's arrest, police searched his hotel room and backpack and found six pounds of smokeless powder, Christmas lights and battery-operated clocks -- which were apparently intended to create a timing and triggering device of some type -- sugar, shrapnel, a pressure cooker, and shotgun shells that were in the process of being dismantled for raw explosives. The materials were enough to make two bombs, a Department of Defense official told CNN. In the soldier's backpack, police also found "Islamic extremist literature," a .40-calliber pistol and a shopping list of components for a bomb, a law enforcement official said. .

Well, this was certainly a surprise. I knew this kid. He lived with us for a while when he was homeless.

We met Nassar "Jason" Abdo when he was 10 or so. He was living in Garland and we had a shop in a flea market in the area. He would often come by and be our "street hawker" trying to bring people into our shop.

There is a lot of back story behind this guy and it's not at all what most people might think. I will work up a bit of his story and post it.

BTW, the news says they are confident he was acting alone. In all of my years knowing him, I have never gotten the impression that he would be capable of doing something like this of his own initiative.

We met Nassar "Jason" Abdo when he 10 or so. He was living in Richardson with his father and sister. He would visit the flea market where we had out little shop and eventually became our unofficial "street hawker" to help bring traffic into our shop.

When we met him, he went by the name Jason. His history was a broken one. His parents were divorced and his mom was fighting her own demons with substance abuse. His dad had already spent time in prison for allegations of sexual assult of a minor (his sister, if I recall correctly). Within a year of meeting him, his dad was arrested and convicted, this time for possesion of child pornography. Jason and his sister were now without a home. He asked us for place to stay and some friends of ours put him up down the road. His sister went to live with relatives in Frisco. In the mean time, his dad kept calling us collect from prison until we told them to stop letting him.

Jason did reasonably well in school and was very outgoing. He was not distinguishable from any other teen really. He and our son got along well enough. Unfortunately, disaster once again struck when one of the people staying with our friends had convinced Nassar that he was in love with him. This quickly spiraled out of control and as soon as we found out, we called the police and Nassar was placed with his mother, under protest. She then sent him to a live in mental health facility for kids to recover from PTSD. When he came back, he was better and stable. He had received his emancipation as an adult and got his own apartment and was working for a while. Eventually, circumstances made him move out and he stayed with us for a short time before abruptly disappearing. We later found out that he had moved overseas.

We hadn't heard from him for a couple of years except through the grapevine. He eventually returned and paid us and some of our friends a visit. We were stunned when he began ranting about how we were all infidels and we really needed to accept Islam, etc. That was about the time he joined the military and vanished again.

Interesting. Reading through your accounts, I'm not sure why you don't see him doing the things he is alleged to have been arrested for. Your post actually makes the entire story make sense.

When I first read that he was being charged with child pornography, I instantly thought that maybe he's being set up. After reading this, it's now clear.

Thanks, so much for sharing!
