I would have NEVER guessed this sort of thing could happen. Zero is, after all, doing much better than W. at protecting us, so hawkish he's even responsible for the turn around in Iraq. I love good fiction; don't you?
And this happened before Christmas, before Fruit of Kaboom. Why are we just hearing about it now?
Apparently, it's all about the transparency.
UPDATE: Maggie's Notebook and Gateway Pundit make an interesting connection to this December arrest in Pakistan of 5 American Muslims.
CBN News has learned exclusively that five Muslim soldiers at Fort Jackson in South Carolina were arrested just before Christmas and are in custody. The five men were part of the Arabic Translation program at the base.FOX News confirms the CBN News report (via iOwnTheWorld):
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.
Coming as it does on the heels of November's Fort Hood jihadist massacre, this news has major implications.
Stay tuned to this blog for more details.
The U.S. Army is investigating allegations that soldiers were attempting to poison the food supply at Fort Jackson in South Carolina.
The ongoing probe began two months ago, Chris Grey, a spokesman for the Army’s Criminal Investigation Division, told Fox News.
The Army is taking the allegations “extremely seriously,” Grey said, but so far, "there is no credible information to support the allegations."
The suspects were part of a Arabic translation program called "09 Lima" and use Arabic as their first language, two sources told Fox News. Another military source said they were Muslim.
Grey would not confirm or deny the sources’ information.
