AWOL soldier gets life term for Fort Hood plot

View Comments

(AP) – A Muslim soldier has been sentenced to two life terms in prison for planning to attack a Texas restaurant full of U.S. troops. A defiant Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo told a federal court in Waco today that he will continue to wage jihad. Abdo told authorities he planned to make bombs as part of a “massive attack” against Fort Hood soldiers last year.

Abdo was convicted in May of six charges. He was AWOL from Fort Campbell, Ky., when he was arrested with bomb-making materials last summer at a motel near Fort Hood.
