AWOL Army E-3 Arrested in Texas

Pfc. Naser Abdo has been AWOL from his court martial for possession of child porn. Last year he refused to deploy to Afghanistan, claiming his Muslim religion forbids it. He was arrested yesterday near Fort Hood after inquiring at a gun store how to make homemade explosives.

Police in Central Texas have caught an AWOL Muslim soldier from Fort Campbell, Ky., at a motel in the city near Fort Hood after he asked how to build explosives at a gun store.

A law enforcement official told CBS News that Pfc. Naser Abdo's questions about explosives and how to build them made the gun store employee suspicious. When police questioned Abdo at his motel, he made references to a plan to kill or injure people, the official said.

PROTIP for wannabe terrorists. Gun store employees are the last people you want to act shifty around. Their livelihood depends on weeding out crazies and turning them over to the authorities.

Some background on this guy. Last August he refused to deploy. In June, the Army Review Boards Agency recommended he be separated from the Army as a conscientious objector. But that got put on hold because the MPs found child porn on his computer. He's been in court martial proceedings since then, but he skipped out on appearing for trial.

If you can stomach it, CNN slobbered all over him back in August when he refused to deploy.

According to Abdo in the CNN video, he consulted a Muslim Army chaplain who told him to suck it up and go to war. Abdo disagreed, claiming that his religion prohibits him from all warfare.

Be aware, some dude on the internet says that Abdo claimed his religion prohibits killing Muslims, but not killing anyone else. I haven't found a primary source for that yet, so take it with a grain of salt. It contradicts what Abdo says in the CNN video.
