Attempt to poison the food supply at Fort Jackson South Carolina

5 Muslim soldiers arrested:

CBN News has learned exclusively that five Muslim soldiers at Fort Jackson in South Carolina were arrested just before Christmas. It is unclear whether the men are still in custody. The five were part of the Arabic Translation program at the base.

The men are suspected of trying to poison the food supply at Fort Jackson.

A source with intimate knowledge of the investigation, which is ongoing, told CBN News investigators suspect the "Fort Jackson Five" may have been in contact with the group of five Washington, DC area Muslims that traveled to Pakistan to wage jihad against U.S. troops in December. That group was arrested by Pakistani authorities, also just before Christmas.

Rusty at The Jawa Report adds:

We only have two examples of Muslims soldiers betraying their country and trying to kill their fellow soldiers since 9/11: Nidal Hasan and Hasan Akbar.

In both of those cases the would-be terrorist worked alone. Anwar al-Awlaki encouraged Hasan, but he didn't plot with him.

But if this pans out -- and, again, I hope it doesn't -- that would mean that we had an active cell, a plot by would-be-jihadists, within the ranks of the U.S. Army. The number five may be small in the big scheme of things, but to have five Muslim soldiers plotting together? That is a scary, scary thought.

The AP, predictably, whitewashes the story:

The Army has been looking for two months into allegations that soldiers at a base in South Carolina were being poisoned, but a spokesman says no credible information to support the allegations has been found.

Army spokesman Lt. Col. Christopher Garver said Thursday the investigation was being conducted at Fort Jackson, located outside Columbia, for the past two months.

...

Garver says there has not been any credible information found to substantiate the allegations.

Nothing to see here folks... I mean how credible is it that Muslims would want to kill Americans?

Pffft.

If they had anything at all, the spokesman would have said, "The investigation is ongoing, no comment."

I suppose some believe Lt. Col. Garver is lying. Why not drive down to Columbia, and tell him that to his face?

The sentence from treason USED TO BE execution. Now, there's no teeth in dealing with such people. I believe we should go old school and have public hangings again. Visual aid=crime/terrorist deterrent.
