Police Say Fort Campbell Soldier Was Planning Attack on Fort Hood

Police say a soldier from Fort Campbell was planning an attack on Fort Hood, Texas.

PFC Naser Abdo was AWOL from Kentucky. He was arrested in Killeen, Texas with explosives and a uniform with Fort Hood patches on it. Another Muslim soldier went on a shooting spree at the fort in 2009, and police say Abdo may not have waited much longer to carry out his own attack.

Abdo is 21-years-old and had previously been granted conscientious objector status. A gun store clerk alerted the police of Abdo’s suspicious purchases.
