Muslim “Mohammed Abdullah Hassan” arrested for planning suicide bombing at US Army base

An ISIS jihadi named Mohammed Abdullah Hassan was arrested for planning to detonate a car bomb in a suicide bombing at Fort Riley in Kansas:

YAHOO – A 20-year-old U.S. man was arrested in Kansas on Friday for allegedly plotting a suicide bombing at the U.S. Army base Fort Riley, the Justice Department said.

John T. Booker, Jr. faces three federal charges that can bring up to life in prison for planning to detonate a car bomb in order to support the Islamic State militant group.

KANSAS.COM – Federal authorities charged a 20-year-old Topeka man Friday with plotting to bomb Fort Riley in league with, he believed, the so-called Islamic State.

John Thomas Booker Jr., also known as Mohammed Abdullah Hassan, was named with in three counts that alleged he planned on Friday to use a “weapon of mass destruction” to damage property at the U.S. Army Base near Junction City in a suicide mission.

He was arrested without incident 9 a.m. Friday. Conviction on any count could mean a sentence of life in prison. The charges were announced by U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom of Kansas.

“We face a continued threat from individuals within our own borders who may be motivated by a variety of causes,” said Grissom said in a news release. “Anyone who seeks to harm this nation and its people will be brought to justice.”

More than a year ago, court records contend, Booker posted on Facebook that “I will soon be leaving you forever so goodbye! I’m going to wage jihad and hopes that i die.” A few days later, according to the charges, he said “getting ready to be killed in jihad is a HUGE adrenaline rush!!”

That, the charges contend, prompted a tip to FBI agents who interviewed him.

Booker had enlisted in the U.S. Army with the intent to “commit an insider attack against American soldiers,” the court records allege he told FBI agents.

The court records say he talked of shooting other soldiers in basic training — although preferring “someone with power” rather than “privates” — or being deployed overseas and turning on Americans if he was told to kill a fellow Muslim.

But he apparently enlisted under a delayed entry program and never became a part of the Army.

Months later, in October 2014, the charges contend Booker came in contact with an FBI informant and said he wanted to be part of the Islamic State, sometimes referred to as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

Authorities on Friday contended that Booker had created at least two videos — one filmed in front of a collection of bomb materials — rented a 10-foot-by-20-foot storage locker in Topeka and went to several retailers buying bomb materials.

But they said there was never a breach in security at Fort Riley. And the assembled bomb material was inert, incapable of explosion.

“I want to assure the public there was never any breach of Fort Riley Military Base,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Eric Jackson. “Recently the Command Staff at Fort Riley has been working hand-in-hand with law enforcement to ensure the utmost security and protection for the men and women who serve our country, and the surrounding community that supports the base.”


They shouldn’t just give this cretin life, they should execute him. All he will do is make more jihadis in prison.
