African-American Muslim Convert Guns Down Two Soldiers at Little Rock Recruiting Station

The political apparatus behind Homeland Security is obviously not tracking the right extremists:

A Muslim convert who said he was opposed to the U.S. military shot two soldiers outside an Arkansas recruiting station, killing one of the soldiers, police said Monday.

"This individual appears to have been upset with the military, the Army in particular, and that's why he did what he did," Little Rock Police Lt. Terry Hastings said in a phone interview.

"He has converted to Muslim here in the past few years," Hastings said. "To be honest we're not completely clear on what he was upset about. He had never been in the military."

Hastings identified the man in custody as Carlos Bledsoe, 24, of Little Rock, who was going by the name of Abdul Hakim Mujahid Muhammad.

It seems like it was just within the past few weeks—because it was—that another group of African-American Muslim converts attempted to carry out terrorist attacks against American citizens.

Has anyone heard of Homeland Security or the Justice Department issuing warnings to law enforcement agencies to be looking for signs of suspicious activity from this very specific pool of potential terrorists? Before they struck twice in the past two weeks, I mean.

I'd love to hear from those of you in law enforcement if such a warning had been issued.

I'd hate to think that our current Presidential Administration would rather ignore the uncomfortable realities of real terrorist threats in favor of playing to the comforting silence of identity politics... but considering President Obama's ties to certain terrorists/authors and the 20 years he spent in the congregation of a racial separatist church, I wouldn't put it past Dear Leader, either.

I heard the poor fellow read in the New York Times that Guantanamo still wasn't closed, ran to a Mosque, radicalized and went on a wild rampage.

One thing to remember is that the 4 who were caught trying to buy the stinger thought that they were making contact with Al Queda.

So, if you're truly wondering what liberals think of the situation, look no further than slate magazine...

(I had to remove the link to the article because the filter on this message board wouldn't let me post it. But if you'd like to read it it's from Feb.27 09, and the title of the article is called "the melting pot theroy", it's one in a series about why after 9-11, we weren't attacked again.Google it!)

"American Muslims are better-educated and wealthier than the average American"

Really? I did not know that! I thought that many were living in places like Jersey City and Patterson. (not nice areas!)

See what they mean to say is that people who are Muslim who are come from the middle east are sometimes wealthy, but of course not all of them are. In reality there are a whole other set of Muslims that they, for some reason in the article, fail to consider.
If you or me or anybody who reads Confederate Yankee were to make such generalizations, well I guess that we'd be... racists? Ignorant? Stupid?.

I just read over on Ace that the FBI was checking up on this guy since he returned from Yemen. Not that it did any good, but he was indeed on a list.

The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies -- civilians and military -- is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it...

Well, the Dept of Homeland Security had the guy on their list. They really meant to check him out, but they were too busy. They were hot on the trail of several recently returned veterans, three of whom attended a tea party rally and one of whom joined the NRA!

Thus spoke a osama bin laden, who anyone can tell you, is no muslim.

I look forward to the flood of fatwas against Osama for his anti-islamic screed. I will hold my breath. But this soldier has not died in vain, nor the other wounded for nothing. The lesson here is as obvious as could be. The Islamists daily declare and as often as they are able, demonstrate, that this globe is theirs and anyone not bearded and burkha'd is not just an enemy citizen but a crusader, an infidel; a convert at best but preferably a slave. The battlefield, numbnuts, extends to your front porch. It has throughout this four decade assault but only now are the bullets pinging off your screen door.

I do not know whether the speed is also a problem, there is always some problems, but this game is really good, I like it very much, pictures are so beautiful, I have a website. I will do a good job in the network as soon as poss Very grateful to the producers, has brought us such a good picture.Why I went to a map which, when there will be a shadow in the flash? Many aspects of the game I think the United States than in Japan too strong, and true, vivid, clear, great.ible, then enjoy the game happy. I want to say is, your viewpoint is not wrong, but many people do not like the idea we can not make generalizations, the need to prove that it is completely correct, it is not easy, so I only wrote his own opinion; on alibaba like sony and you can compete? Who said it was not clear, of course, it is entirely different industries, but how can you did a few years whether they need to compete with a market? Or too short a lot of things that, like a happy life, and I wish you good luck, I wish everyone good luck. 杭州店面装修上天ge强寻杭州办公室装修杭州江干区空调维修产有f中杭州室内装修中drd联在缝纫机维修风进矿产要地T恤衫腻子粉银行pos机pos机代办反向链接杭州搬家公司杭州复印机出租杭州搬家杭州搬家seo杭州植物租赁杭州花卉租赁银行POS机杭州花卉出租杭州花卉公司seo文化衫
