Muslim Carrying Bomb Detained Near Pentagon (Video)

A man carrying an explosive device and Al-Qaeda literature was detained in Arlington National Cemetery this morning. The cemetery was closed at the time when the Muslim was arrested.

ABC reported, via Michelle Malkin:

A man carrying a suspicious package was detained in Arlington National Cemetery this morning after police searched his backpack and found the materials as well as pro-al Qaeda literature, officials told ABC News.

Police believe he was carrying ammonium nitrate and spent ammunition for an automatic weapon. Ammonium nitrate has been used in terrorist bombs.

According to law enforcement sources, the man is a naturalized U.S. citizen. Initially he was thought to be of Ethiopian ethnicity.

The statements were found in a notebook that contained mostly notes for a financial class. There was also was a page containing words “al qaeda”, “Taliban rules”, “mujahidin and “defeated coalition forces.”

The man allegedly told police that there were other “devices” in the area and also the location of a vehicle.

    I woke up this morning, went on the computer and saw the headline. “Man” arrested near Pentagon. I went right to a reputable blog because I knew they were eliminating something important, the man’s name. I knew instinctively it was going to be a Muslim. I was right. I’m sure the poor dear was suffering some type of mental illness. I read on Atlas Shrugs this morning that Muslim men who were plotting to blow up New York’s largest synagogue will not be charged with a “Hate Crime,” or another more serious charge. I guess when it’s Jews or Christians your going to blow up, that isn’t “Hate.” The ironic part is, these same Jews, and most of the Christians in NY thought they were so morally superior, and noble by voting for this wonderful “First Black President.” It’s just so sick. Where am I? He’s an accessory to murder along with his friend Holder in Operation Gunrunner. We have the Weather Underground and Muslim Brotherhood in the White House. The least John Boehner could do is defund their activities. If they aren’t going to remove him, at least they could defund them.

    I’ve been sending articles to the Israeli intelligence service hoping they do the job, ours won’t. Investigate who these monsters are. I hope they do. For our sake and theirs.

    Western immigration policies are suicidal. Stop letting these sub-human islamist animals migrate to the West for God sakes. And deport the ones who are already here. Common sense people. Start using it. Ignore the leftists and islamists when they call you ignorant racist islamophobes. Stop letting them guilt and shame you into committing slow motion civilizational suicide. Grow balls and stand up to them.

  • 3rd Option

    It’s a good thing Rep. King is holding the hearings to study radical Presbyterianism… wait, the guy w/ the backpack full of spent shells, fertilizer & Al Qaeda materials isn’t Presbyterian? My mistake. Would have NEVER guesses he’d be a Muslim.

  • shibumi

    Two things to remember:

    1. If they omit his name, he is a Muslim.
    2. If they say it is not related to terrorism, it is related to terrorism.

    Has Sheila Jackson-Lee blamed radical Christianity for this yet?

  • Obama has allow 80’000 immigrants into our country most are from middle eastern countries, this fiscal year……..

  • Missy8s


    Somebody notify Sheila Jackson Lee that they found one of those “Domestic Christian Extremists” she’s been looking for….!!!

    Aw shucks!

    He’s a Muslim!

    This one will be quickly swept under the rug by the media, he doesn’t fit the profile do desperately desired by the lefty media…

  • SSBN 627(B)

    On the other hand, the media might just embrace this as another example of profiling. One might ask what the official Grandma/Muslim strip-search ratio is.

  • aprilnovember811

    You are so right. I wake up every morning wondering what I have to do to today to fight this. Who do I need to send information, just hoping one person in a thousand will look at it, or take it seriously. I went to bed a 2AM the other night, because I made the mistake of sitting down, and finding something I felt was important and wanted to get it out.

    My husband said, “Why were you up so late?” I said, I guess George Washington didn’t get enough sleep either. I don’t know if we’re going to win this war though. Obama became emboldened when he was allowed to lie about his birth. He now feels invincible and unless someone stops him, more people will die in this country. Maybe if it’s one of the elitist snobs who run this country, they will then, take it seriously enough to do something about him. Maybe the Israeli intelligence will be the ones to do it, since ours won’t.

    I am listening to Laura ingraham on the internet, KJCE Austin and the news from there is that there is nothing to see regarding this story.

    aprilnovember811, you don’t have to worry that people aren’t monitoring websites. They are.

    A friend of mine has a relative who is in the military (pretty high up) and after 9/11 told her that even although 9/11 happened that everyday multiple attacks on the US are stopped. They are watching. Even the Mossad watches. Just because there is someone in the WH who is not a friend to Israel doesn’t mean that Mossad isn’t watching. Our security is important to them. They know this guy isn’t going to be in the WH forever.

    That is what they were saying on Fox News as well.

    Silly people, this is a Christian masquerading as an Islamowackjob to throw you all off.
    His name and country of origin is immaterial because he must be a Christian rightwinger.

    ThanK God we are kind of vigilant and most of these guys are not the brightest bulbs.
    Although if it is a dry run, I might be taking that back.

    Mr Cain would you put him in the Cabinet?

  • Ginger

    Why is the kenyan fraud being allowed to run for re-election when he has NOT proved his citizenship? I guess he is getting by with the fake certificate that Pelosi the bitch holds! Please people when Boehner is up for re-election I hope next year VOTE HIM OUT! We have to boot all of the rinos out and the new ones who are NOT doing their job!

    What angers me the most is to see the republicans sucking up with the demo-rats! I guess they are more forgiving then I am because when the demo-rats were in control they treated the republicans like sh(t. Did that bar-be-que at the white house tell you that there is a lot of a$$ kissing going on with the rebublicans.

    Also….where is the medical report on the kenyan fraud? I know the one page report from his doctor saying the fraud is healthy to ruin our country. He should be made to ….no that will not work it will be doctored to say he is mentally healthy and very intelligant. Ha

    I am convinced that the Muslim had confiscated it from a Christian or a Mormon, moments before he was caught. Just wait and see!

  • jainphx

    We are not secure enough to hear the truth! The have to tell us it’s not terrorist related or we will all just go crazy. No that ain’t the reason, the reason is that an admission of terrorism would be politically bad for our Muslim in chief.

  • Joanne

    …but he probably doesn’t get frisked at the airport – grandmas and children are the terrorists. I’m sure this muslim is just an extremist and not a peace-loving, tolerant muslim like the rest – barf!

  • Joe College

    Why does law enforcement and the media think we will be comforted to learn the perp was not in any known terror group? To my mind that makes it even worse if he “acted alone”. It makes me think any Muslim is capable of this sort of thing whether they’re affiliated with a jihadist group or not.

  • Eddie Willers

    He won’t be testifying or mentioned at the King hearings.
    But… in 3…2…1
    His family will be claiming he’s been emotionally disturbed for quite some time.
    Janet Napolitano will tell us there is no cause for alarm he’s just another one-off Terrorist.
    A crying Keith Ellison will invoke the memory of Timothy McVeigh.
    CNN will be citing his recent financial troubles to justify it
    Ibrahim Cooper of CAIR (Creatively Avoiding Islamic Reality) will call us all Islamophobes for deigning to even equate Islam with Barbaric acts of atrocity.

    perhaps the law enforcement gurus will understand that being a muslim could mean belonging to a terror group. Listening to an immams’ speech or web site calling for jihad is enough. he need not get a signed membership card>

    Praise to the reporter for having the integrity to tell the reader that the perp was “a Muslim”. However, the part about “spent ammunition for an automatic weapon” is purely an ignorant and inflammatory outburst of pejorative propaganda.

    Spent casings are as inert as a box of rocks, and a there are a ton of different calibers used by automatic weapons, so just about any common spent casing could be described in this way. It tells us far more about the reporter and the reporter’s editor than about the member of the Religion of Peace ™ who was arrested.

    Melaku, who lives in Alexandria, Va., joined as a reservist in August 2007 but military officials say there is no record indicating he served in Iraq or Afghanistan. . . According to the Leesburg Police Department, a person with the same name and date of birth was arrested last month for breaking into vehicles at around 3:30 a.m. on May 26 in Leesburg, Va. Twenty-seven vehicles were damaged during the break-ins, according to police.

    Why do we seem to be seeking out muslim african men to naturalize? How is it in our national interest? Granted, it gives liberals more ammo in the “Christian prayers offend people” argument, since the more non-Christians they bring here the more people there are to hate on us.

    But then notice how ABC spends half their article on the “nothing to see here” angle, like the terrorist information is research for an accounting class or something.

    And I bet the USMC recruiter who got this POS into the Corps got extra diversity brownie points for doing so…

    “Two things to remember:

    You forgot:

    3. If they say he yelled something unintelliable, it is “allahu akbar”.

    Yeah. I read that awhile back. Unfreaking believable. Of course, I had to get the facts somewhere else too.

    another colonist brought to the united states by our politicans because WE need them so badly. stop the colonization of the united states. the only way this colonization is going to stop is if the people of this country stop it stop asking the politicans to stop it, they are the one that have carried it out for the last thirty-five years.

    And somewhere Rep. Peter King is patting himself on the back for sticking it to the democrap appeasers in Congress yesterday. Gorsh, where are those Christian and Buddhist fundamentalist terrorists when you need them?

    To allow the democraps to take the heat off of the real islamofascist terrorists.

    Eddie Willars, Did you know that Timothy McVeigh was recruited by some former Iraqi soldiers? This wasn’t the act of a right wing anti-government type, it was an agnostic, socialist. It was an act of Jihad that is to this day hidden. Read The Third Terrorist by Jayna Davis. They’ve lied about this for years. I’ll never, ever, ever, ever, ever, trust this demented Government again.
    Terry Nichols is in prison. He won’t speak about the Iraqi yet because he fears for his family.
    The family of one of the victims of OK City just won a victory in court a few weeks ago. They wanted all of the surveillance tapes around the building prior to the explosion in OK City. The FBI didn’t want to release them to the family, but they won. Maybe we’ll find out the truth someday. Janet Reno and Clinton covered this up. It’s absolutely sick how morally bankrupt these people are.

    Here is one of the men who was with McVeigh on that morning.

  • FurryGuyJeans

    If the media doesn’t successfully bury the relevant facts in this incident, we may be looking at yet another instance of governmental agencies knowing the guy was a threat and refused to take action because of some nebulous PC fear. What little is getting reported so far is making this look like a replay of the Ft. Hood shooter.
