The AWOL soldier and left-wing antiwar activist was charged today in court for plotting a major attack on Ft. Hood.
Army soldier Naser Jason Abdo shouted the name of a military psychiatrist accused of a 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, during his first appearance in court on Friday.
It wasn’t that long ago that the AWOL soldier who was arrested yesterday for plotting the massive attack on Ft. Hood was a major left-wing hero. But, if you thought the media would point this out you would be wrong, after all, he’s not a conservative.
The 21-year-old soldier arrested today for allegedly plotting to attack Fort Hood appears to be the same “conscientious objector” who was viewed as a peacemaker by anti-war activists last year, after he refused to serve in Afghanistan or Iraq because he claimed it violated his Muslim faith.

When Pfc. Naser Abdo applied for CO status last year, the utterly discredited Iraq Veterans Against the War organization posted a message in support of him on its website, and asked readers to donate to his legal defense fund. And Kimber Heinz, a writer for the far-left website Truthout, unluckily chose to profile Abdo in a 2010 article entitled, “One Year After Fort Hood: The Missing Story of Muslim Peacemaking.”
“We must lift up the stories and ongoing work of Muslim peacemakers like Naser Abdo,” Heinz wrote.
CNN and Al Jazeera also both featured glowing segments on Abdo’s quest to obtain CO status.
Despite his fan-base we haven’t seen headline after headline on this kook being a left-wing Muslim antiwar hero, have we?
Funny how that happens.
