Texas: Soldier Indicted in Bomb Plot

“Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo, 21, was indicted in Waco on charges of possession of an unregistered destructive device, possession of a firearm and possession of ammunition by a fugitive from justice … He was arrested two weeks ago at a Killeen motel near Fort Hood after going AWOL from Fort Campbell, Ky. Investigators say they found a handgun, an article titled “Make a bomb in the kitchen of your Mom” and the ingredients for an explosive device, including gunpowder, shrapnel and pressure cookers. An article with that title appears in an Al Qaeda magazine. Private Abdo was approved as a conscientious objector this year after citing his Muslim beliefs, but that status was delayed after he was charged with possessing child pornography.
