Law enforcement authorities say officers found evidence that the man charged with the Arkansas military recruiter shooting might have considered other targets. A joint FBI (web) -Homeland Security intelligence assessment obtained by The Associated Press said officers found maps to Jewish organizations, a child care center, a Baptist church, a post office and military recruiting centers in the southeastern U.S. and New York and Philadelphia. Muslim-convert Abdulhakim Muhammad has pleaded not guilty to Monday's deadly shooting in a suburban Little Rock shopping center. Authorities said he targeted soldiers "because of what they had done to Muslims in the past."Two days after his death, I guess someone whispered in Barry's ear that if he was going to express "outrage" at the murder of late-term abortionist George Tiller, the least he could do is acknowledge the death of a soldier who was willing his life on the line for his country. Real nice job there Barry.
Private William Long was killed and Private Quinton I. Ezeagwula was wounded. Both completed basic training within the past two weeks and had never seen combat. After the attack, investigators searched a computer connected to Muhammad and found research into multiple sites in different states, according to the memo obtained by the AP. Investigators are working to determine if anyone else knew about Muhammad's intentions.
Meanwhile, in a statement released by the White House Wednesday, President Obama said, “I am deeply saddened by this senseless act of violence against two brave young soldiers who were doing their part to strengthen our armed forces and keep our country safe. I would like to wish Quinton Ezeagwula a speedy recovery, and to offer my condolences and prayers to William Long’s family as they mourn the loss of their son.”
