    WACO (May 22, 2012)—AWOL Army Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo planned to detonate a homemade bomb in a Fort Hood area restaurant frequented by soldiers and then to shoot anyone who survived the explosion to "martyr himself" for the people of Iraq and Afghanistan, FBI Special Agent C. Michael Owens testified Tuesday.

    Owens, who was the first prosecution witness in Abdo’s trial in U.S. District Court in Waco, testified that Abdo told him he planned to target a Chinese restaurant because soldiers like to eat Chinese food.

    Owens testified that Abdo planned to fill a pressure cooker with shrapnel and gunpowder and to use a clock as a timer.

    Owens said Abdo told him he got instructions on how to build the bomb from a magazine he read online at a public library.

    Owens testified Abdo planned to carry out the attack between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. because that’s when married soldiers would be eating.

    He testified that Abdo told him he chose to target a restaurant in the Fort Hood area rather than at Fort Bragg, where he was stationed, because he wanted to credit the faith of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who’s awaiting trial for the deadly November 2009 shooting rampage on post.

    Owens quoted Abdo as saying of Hasan, "People think he's crazy. But he's not."

    He also testified that Abdo told him he planned to offer a ride to and then murder a random soldier, whose death he planned to videotape while reciting the names of Muslims he felt were the U.S. government had wronged, including Hasan.

    In opening statements Tuesday morning, prosecutors said Abdo confessed to the plot, which they said was foiled by good police work and a resident’s report of suspicious activity.

    Can we try these thugs for the crime they are truly guilty of? That being high treason? Low treason? Any kind of treason?

    This kind of stuff makes me sick to my stomach.
    Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    In order to try them for treason, the people trying them would have to be patriotic enough to recognize the concept. Our post-modern, citizen-of-the-world elites don't see treason as a crime, but they do see patriotism as an embarrassment.

    But don't question their patriotism. If any.

    I love how people can claim to be "citizens of the world" in one breath, and then complain when somebody questions their patriotism in the next.

    I had a discussion recently with my wife on the failure of justice due to PC/lack of courage and a pervasive miseducation of our society. I told her the logical endstate is vigilantism. I know what I would do if on a personal level justice was sacrificed for these unacceptable reasons.
    Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.
