This morning, the feds arrested Muhammed Hussain, a Muslim convert formerly known as Antonio Martinez, in the Baltimore area on charges related to a bombing plot against military recruitment centers.
Scant details, but here’s the story via FNC:
An official told Fox News that the arrest was part of a sting operation and that there is no threat to the American public. The official said the suspect was given a phony bomb and was arrested after trying to detonate it.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the suspect’s goal was to blow up a military recruitment center in Baltimore County.
One official told Fox News that this is “another Portland-type case.”
Martinez is reportedly a U.S. citizen.
I’ll add his mugshot to my jihadi gallery when it’s released.
On a more disturbing note, the feds say this latest arrest is not connected to the still-unsolved spate of Beltway-area shootings at military recruitment stations and other military targets.
Remember: If it’s Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, it’s just another day in the life of a true believer in violent jihad.
