I wrote about Sgt. Hasan Akbar’s attack on his fellow American troops in Onward Muslim Soldiers. Now comes confirmation of my contention there that he attacked them solely out of loyalty to Islam, not because of racism or anything else (contrary to widely published reports). From AP, with thanks to LGF:
FORT BRAGG, N.C. – A prosecution witness testified Monday that a soldier charged with killing two officers in a grenade attack during the Iraq war confessed to the crimes after his arrest, saying he feared the wartime deaths of Muslims.
