Ft Hood Plotter Used Al Qaeda Bomb Manual

Authorities told FOX News Channel Saturday that in a search of Abdo's hotel room they found 18lbs (8kg) of sugar, a pressure cooker and smokeless gunpowder that was to be used as the trigger. He had enough bomb making materials for two bombs, they said.

"He was all ready to go," one law enforcement source said.

The bomb making materials and methodology was "straight out of Inspire magazine and an al Qaeda explosives course manual," one counterterrorism source said, referring to the terrorist organization's English-language magazine.

A second source confirmed that two additional Fort Hood soldiers have been questioned about Abdo.

According to the criminal complaint, Abdo admitted to the arresting officers that he intended to conduct an attack in Killeen and Fort Hood and that he had explosives in his backpack and his hotel room.

It was revealed last week that police found a gun, ammunition, two clocks, and two spools of auto wire in Abdo's backpack, along with an article entitled "Make a bomb in the kitchen of your Mom."

Inside Abdo's hotel room, police discovered an electric drill, two clocks, five shotgun shells, four razorblades and ammunition for guns.

The criminal complaint stated that Abdo admitted to planning to assemble two bombs in his hotel room using gunpowder and shrapnel placed into pressure cookers. Prosecutors said Abdo intended to set off these bombs at a Fort Hood restaurant popular with servicemen and women.

Janet Napolitano, Obama's useless dyke in charge of Home Land Security should be held accountable for missing this one. One attack at Ft Hood is a mistake, another attack or one that got this close and you are fired, but not in the Hussein Regime.
