FBI: Muslim Suspects Inspired by Fort Hood ShootingNews Friday, June 24th, 2011
SEATTLE (AP) _ A federal complaint says two men who planned to attack a military recruiting station in Seattle were inspired by the massacre at Fort Hood, Texas, and the ongoing war crimes prosecutions of Washington state soldiers.
Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif, also known as Joseph Anthony Davis, of Seattle, and Walli Mujahidh, also known as Frederick Domingue Jr., of Los Angeles, were arrested Wednesday night.
Authorities say the FBI ensnared them in a sting after a potential recruit went to authorities. The complaint paints Abdul-Latif as the leader of the effort.
The two appeared in federal court Thursday and listened as prosecutor recited the charges against them. Detention hearings were set for next Wednesday.
Their court-appointed defense lawyers declined to comment.
The suspects could face life in prison if convicted.

Editor’s Note: Nowhere in the original copy of this story does it mention these two suspects are Muslim. In the interest of full disclosure, I feel it is only fair to you — the reader — to know these suspects are followers of radical Islam. (Chace Murphy)
