AWOL infantry soldier caught with weapons and a bomb
"As a man of faith and as a Muslim, I would actually be eager to be incarcerated or court marshaled as opposed to being deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan," said Abdo.
In June, Abdo filed a conscientious objector's claim in hopes of getting out of the military, and now he has reason to hope he'll get it. The investigating officer recommended that the military discharge him honorably.

The military began investigating Abdo in November of 2010. They charged him on May 15, 2011, two days after he was approved by the Secretary of the Army as a conscientious objector.
"It has been nearly 10 months since the investigation started and I am only now being charged with child pornography when my C.O. claim is approved. I think that all sounds pretty fishy," said Abdo. Conscientious objector charged, accused of child porn May 15th 2011
An AWOL infantry soldier caught with weapons and a bomb inside a backpack admitted planning what would have been Fort Hood's second terrorist attack in less than two years, the Army said Thursday. He might have succeeded at carrying it out, police said, if a gun-store clerk hadn't alerted them to the man's suspicious activity. AWOL soldier admits to Fort Hood attack plan
