A 23-year-old convert to Islam with “political and religious motives” killed a soldier just out of basic training and wounded another in a targeted attack on a military recruiting center in Arkansas, police said.

This person was supposedly being watched as a suspected terrorist. Obviously he was not being watched close enough. Now two young patriots have been killed not on the battlefield but right here in the United States. Oh they are already playing this down as not being a terrorist attack, but what else do you call it.

So do we really want to bring the prisoners from Gitmo onto US soil. And maybe release many of them here too. Is that a real smart idea? If they are not imminent threats and have been held wrongfully, then re-patriot them to their home country. Pay them restitution and give them all the apologies etc they deserve. But don’t let them lose in the US especially after they are legitimately pissed off for being imprisoned. And those who we caught on the battlefield who are real terrorist or enemy combatants. They have already declared Jihad against the US. They must be kept prisoner. To let them loose is just asking for them to kill a soldier or private citizen, or thousands of them like in 9/11.
You don’t set someone loose who has declared their will is to kill as many Americans as possible. Unless you are a total idiot. And if you feel a need to let them loose, here’s an idea, let them come live with you if you trust them so much.

Here is the rest of the story. My heartfelt condolences and prayers go out to the families and friends of these brave patriots cut down in their prime. The story is credited to ABC and FoxNews

The suspect, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, reportedly had been under investigation by an FBI joint terrorism task force after he traveled to Yemen and was arrested there for using a Somali passport. The probe was in its early stages and based on Muhammad’s trip to Yemen, according to ABC News.

While there, Muhammad — a U.S. citizen from Memphis who is a convert to Islam and was previously known as Carlos Bledsoe — studied jihad with an Islamic scholar, Jihadwatch.org reported.

Muhammad told authorities that he approached the recruiting center in Little Rock by car on Monday and started shooting at two soldiers in uniform, according to a police report.

The two soldiers who were shot had completed basic training within the past two weeks and were not regular recruiters

William Long, 23, died, and Quinton Ezeagwula, 18, was wounded and in stable condition, according to Thomas.

Police said an assault rifle and other weapons were found in Muhammad’s car when he was arrested.
