UPDATE: Still no word from President Fuckstick....
Robert Spencer, using a well-placed informant, broke the news of this little tidbit of information (a rather important one) before any Mid-stream news organization.
The suspect arrested in the fatal shooting of one soldier and the critical injury of another at a Little Rock, Ark., Army recruiting booth today was under investigation by the FBI's Joint Terrorist Task Force since his return from Yemen, ABC News has learned.
The investigation was in its preliminary stages, authorities said, and was based on the suspect's travel to Yemen and his arrest there for using a Somali passport.
The suspect, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, 24, had changed his name from Carlos Leon Bledsoe after converting to the Muslim faith.It was not known what path Muhammad, a U.S. citizen who is a recent convert to Islam, had followed to radicalization.
As reported yesterday, the news looked a bit different...
(Fox News)-Police in Little Rock, Ark., say a man who shot two new Army soldiers, killing one, at a military recruiting center likely had "political and religious motives."
Police Chief Stuart Thomas identified the victim who died as 24-year-old William Long of Conway. He and the second soldier, both wearing fatigues, had recently completed basic training and volunteered to help attract others to the military.
A man in a black SUV drove to the recruitment office and fired "several shots" with an assault rifle at around 10:30 a.m., Little Rock police spokesman Lt. Terry Hastings told FOXNews.com.
Hastings said the suspect — described as a black male — immediately fled the scene in his SUV.
The vehicle was stopped on Interstate 630 a short time later and the suspect was taken into custody approximately four miles from the center, Hastings said.
And we can now compare exactly how much President Fuckstick cares about soldiers by how he reacted to the news of another tragedy...
(Free Republic)- In another slap to America's men and women serving in the armed forces, Barack Obama has ignored the fatal shooting attack on an Army-Navy recruiting center in Little Rock this morning that killed one serviceman and wounded another.
Yesterday, Obama issued a sharply worded statement condemning the shooting of late-term abortionist George Tiller within hours of his murder and Obama's Justice Department has ordered U.S. Marshalls to deploy at abortion clinincs to give them protection.
Seven hours after the attack on the recruiting center, the same length of time it took Obama to issue a statement on the Tiller murder, there has been no statement from the commander-in-chief of the slain and wounded servicemen.
One of Obama's core constituencies is radical abortion supporters, not Americans in uniform. The contrast in his reactions to the two murderous attacks is chilling for those who support our fellow Americans in our armed forces.
Tiller was killed at 10 a.m. CDT Sunday, Obama issued his statement about seven hours later at 6 p.m. EDT.
The attack on the recruiting center happened around 10 a.m. CDT today. As of this writing at 6 p.m. EDT (now 7:15pm), there are no news reports of any statement by Obama on the murderous attack on our military.
So, I guess we know now how Obama really feels about our troops and what he will do to protect them from harm.
