Once again demonstrating the fact that there is no clear or easy way to distinguish between Muslims who are peaceful and entirely loyal to the U.S., and those who harbor jihadist sympathies. Certainly Muslims in America have not expelled jihadists from their ranks, and on at least one notable occasion have expelled instead an anti-jihadist Muslim. As for Abujihaad, heck, maybe the last Britney Spears video pushed him over the edge. But in any case, one thing is certain: no one in the Navy was even asking him the right questions to determine where his loyalties lay. Political correctness made sure of that.
By Jerome Parra for 12 News, with thanks to S.T.W.:
Hassan Abujihaad, 31, was arrested today in Phoenix on federal charges of terrorism and espionage. The former U.S. Navy sailor went by the name Paul Hall. The federal complaint alleges that he gave classified information about Navy battle group movements to a London-based group that supported Islamic terrorists including Al-Qaeda. The Navy battle group was engaged in anti-terror operations.
Federal prosecutors say Abujihaad was stationed on the U.S.S. Benfold in the Middle East which was one of the ships that’s movement was revealed.
Emails by Abujihaad allegedly praised Osama bin Laden and the 2000 attack on the U.S.S. Cole and said such tactics were working and taking their toll.
