AWOL soldier gets life term for Fort Hood plot

By Sarah Kuta

WACO, Texas (AP) — An AWOL soldier convicted of planning to blow up a restaurant full of Fort Hood troops has been sentenced to life in prison by a federal judge in Texas.

Army Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo received the punishment Friday in Waco.

Abdo told authorities he planned to make bombs as part of a "massive attack" against Fort Hood soldiers last year. He was convicted in May on six federal charges, including attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction.

The 22-year-old represented himself at the sentencing.

Abdo was AWOL from Fort Campbell, Ky., when he was arrested with bomb-making materials last summer at a Fort Hood-area motel.

    So how does this play out with the Fort Hood Terroist? Are they even considering the death penalty for him? They quit hanging traitors when they let Hanoi Jane run around and make millions of dollars. The Socialist Party in charge now came into being back in that time and endorsed all those radicals like Jane, Ayers, and the rest. You see the mess we have now. Obozo is a traitor to the Constitution along with the rest of them down there. GOD save us all from the evil one.

      If he is ever tried, they will “consider” the death penalty. Usually Texas doesn’t even coddle people like him. If he is given the death penalty, there might be years of appeals, which will take forever.

    Too bad he wasn’t tried in west Texas with oil field workers on the jury.

    Too bad he’s white, or the Kenyan fraud would probably pardon him before leaving the Blight house. Honestly, I’m sick of feeding these traitors. If they’re not going to execute the trash, he should live out his days in a dark hole……

    He could still face a court martial for desertion and treason, but I wouldn’t count on it.

    I don’t make the rules, but …

    I don’t think there should be any life sentences.
    I’d let ‘society’ determine what a ‘maximum’ should be, but if a person must be kept separate from the public for (say) TEN years because of a violent act, it makes more sense to ‘delete’ him.

    Easier on him … and us.

    When there is no doubt about guilt … like these mass shootings … a judge is required in order to pass sentence according to statute. Otherwise, the whole process should be ‘automatic’.

    With no possibiity of having convicted ‘the wrong man’, no appeals are needed … so execution only needs to be delayed long enough for TV crews to set up their equipment.

    If we put some ‘efficiency’ into the system, I bet the incidence of shootings will decrease.

      And he should be dispatched the same way he did the dispatching. If he shot someone he should be shot, if he strangled someone he should be strangled, etc. People will claim it’s old testament “eye for an eye” justice. Not really, it’s more like letting the punishment fit the crime. This way he knows what it feels like as he goes to his “reward”(?).
