Terrorism in Arkansas

You know, REAL terrorism. Not the DHS-variety.

A Muslim convert who said he was opposed to the U.S. military shot two soldiers outside an Arkansas recruiting station, killing one of the soldiers, police said Monday.

"This individual appears to have been upset with the military, the Army in particular, and that's why he did what he did," Little Rock Police Lt. Terry Hastings said in a phone interview.

"He has converted to Muslim here in the past few years," Hastings said. "To be honest we're not completely clear on what he was upset about. He had never been in the military."

Hastings identified the man in custody as Carlos Bledsoe, 24, of Little Rock, who was going by the name of Abdul Hakim Mujahid Muhammad.

I caught some of this yesterday, but I missed the link to Islam. Contrast the "public outrage" and mdia coverage of this with the coverage of abortion doctor murder. It will be interesting.

What media coverage of this? It's barely a 3 paragraph AP story.

Where's Napolitano? Oh, yeah, she's got her entire department investigating veterans.
