It is now known why the Muslim conscientious objector, Army Pvt. Naser Jason Abdo — who was granted a request to be discharged from the Army until he was caught with child pornography — went AWOL. He was plotting an attack at the Texas Army base Fort Hood, the site of the mass murder allegedly perpetrated by Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, a Muslim jihadist.
Pvt. Abdo, of the storied 101st Airborne Division, has admitted he planned a major terror attack on Fort Hood, the Associated Press reports. He was arrested in Killeen, Texas, following a tip from a gun store clerk where Abdo attempted to buy gunpowder, ammunition, and a magazine for a handgun.
"I can probably tell you that we would be having a different briefing today if we hadn't arrested him," Killeen Police Chief Dennis Baldwin said at a news conference, according to the Killeen Daily Herald.
