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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
(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. .
