Update: Five Muslim Soldiers Questioned at Fort Jackson in South Carolina


***CLICK HERE FOR THE LATEST UPDATE***

CBN News has learned exclusively that five Muslim soldiers at Fort Jackson in South Carolina were questioned just before Christmas. It is unclear whether the men are still in custody. The five were part of the Arabic Translation program at the base.

Patrick Jones, the Deputy Public Affairs Officer for Fort Jackson, confirmed for CBN News Thursday afternoon that an investigation was ongoing.

Prior to this posting, CBN News learned that these details were also confirmed by a government official with knowledge of the investigation.

The men are suspected of trying to poison the food supply at Fort Jackson.

A source with intimate knowledge of the investigation, which is ongoing, told CBN News investigators suspect the "Fort Jackson Five" may have been in contact with the group of five Washington, D.C., area Muslims that traveled to Pakistan to wage jihad against U.S. troops in December. That group was arrested by Pakistani authorities, also just before Christmas.

Coming as it does on the heels of November's Fort Hood jihadist massacre, this news could have major implications.

Stay tuned to this blog for more details.

Eric - we sincerely appreciate your courageous reporting. The US MSM is so compromised -- FoxNews included. If it weren't for CBN and Jihad Watch, we would all be one sorry lot of duped Americans.

Sorry, I give no credibility to this report. I am a retired Army officer who served in the Army's CID Command. (I served on the task force investigating McVeigh's Okla. City bombing in 1995.) Please see my post on this report on <a href="http://senseofevents.blogspot.com/2010/02/fort-jackson-poison-plot-nothing-there.html">my own blog</a>.

I don't doubt that such an investigation was begun, but nothing has come of it, almost certainly because there is nothing to it.

I absolutely promise you that no one with "intimate knowledge of the investigation" is talking to you or any other reporter. The only people who would have such knowledge are the CID agents, the post's provost marshal, the post's commanding general and deputy CG, the post's chief of staff, probably the secretary of the general staff, CID's command chain and that's pretty much it.

Ask your source exactly what his role in the investigation is. If he's not part of the investigation, he knows nothing.

Thank you Gen. Casey. You have done with one statement what our family could not do in 8 yrs., my 16 yr. old grandson was ROTC and convinced that his future was in the military. However. Gen.
Casey's statement regarding the killings at Ft. Hood changed his mind. "Ft. Hood was a tragedy but the greater tragedy would be loosing our diversity". So much for diversity....muslims want to kill us. Most of us understand this....it is not our policies, it is our religion....we are Christians and they hate us.

I truly believe that in the best interest of our military, military facilities,and our nation on whole, we should not accept any person into our military/government that follows the muslim belief system.
I see such as a Trojan Horse, a fox in the hen house, of sorts.
I've read that muslims' allegience is to their belief system, thereby making it impossible for loyalties.
I would hope that our government takes this issue as a serious matter.
By doing so, we will avoid more Ft Hood tragedies. This is a matter of survival.
All we need do is remember Pearl Harbor.
This enemy that we're facing is much more dangerous, and cunning, than the Japanese.
The Japanese weren't on a jihad in the name of their so-called 'faith.'

I'm glad these guys were caught. It never ceases to amaze how many cowardly ways Muslim Jihadists
choose to fight. From the Fort Hood ambush, to suicide bombing of women and children to using human shields in Afghanistan to poisoning food supplies,if there is a cowardly way to kill, these terrorists will use it. Anything but a straight up fight with soldiers. The left should be alot more concerned about this deranged mindset and how to stop it than with closing down Gitmo.

# RE: Update: Five Muslim Soldiers Arrested at Fort Jackson in South Carolina

As Islam is a political, economic and social system of breathtaking intolerance, oppression and war; it is rather odd we let those fighting us into the armed forces.
Indeed, Islam is at war with non-Muslims everywhere - and has been for 14 centuries. Yet our elites voluntarily import Muslims into what's left of our country. Time for a new political party. One that identifies Islam for what it is; protects our borders and places the security, saftey and well-being of its citizens first.

Our military leaders need to get their head or whole body out of the sand of the muslim nation and REMOVE them from the oppurtunity to kill our soldiers. What kind of a Christ rejecting nation would allow their enemy to serve their nation. We are a nation of fools who have rejected the truth of God's Word. When you reject Jesus Christ as Saviour, you are open to the gods of the world. Allah is a LIE of the devil to damn the Arabs. The ONLY way to heaven is through Jesus Christ's shed blood.

# RE: Update: Five Muslim Soldiers Arrested at Fort Jackson in South Carolina

Exactly why I feel that Muslims should be excluded from the armed forces. It's not a matter of their religion. It's a matter of the safety of our troops. A requirement for service is an acknowledgement (swear an oath) that you are not now, nor have every been part of any organization which advocates the violent overthrow of the government of the United States. A follower of the church of Islam cannot in good conscience take this oath. Did we allow acknowledged members of the Nazi party to become service members during WWII? There is no difference between the two scenarios, except one dangerous hate group operates under the guise of a 'religion' and gets a pass for it. And we suffer, if you don't think so then look at Fort Hood.

Moderate Muslim leaders refuse to speak out against jihad. This is tacit endorsement of the attacks on the U.S. Islam should be considered an enemy of the U.S. Constitution and declared illegal.

The Jihadists at Fort Jackson are "good" Muslims according to the Koran which commands Jihad in the name of Allah. That is why Islamists always say, "Allah Akbar" when they are murdering non Muslims who are "infidels". This administration especially President Obama who is fully aware of Islam is doing no service to the American people by not being honest as to what is in the Koran. The religion has not been hijacked, and it is not peaceful. Apostates, those Muslims who leave their faith, according to Sharia law, can be put to death. Islam is the only religion that sees non Muslims as "Dhimmi" which means second class citizens, this political correctness must stop. This is not diversity, this is insanity because we are tolerating a religion which seeks world domination through Jihad. I also remind people who read this, Ahmadinejad was one of the original five "students" who took our embassy over in Tehran in 1980.

He expects you to believe that only nannies, gardeners, fecal tomatoes, and leprosy, BUT NO TERRORISTS have invaded our country! He is fronting for his mentor, McAmnesty, the purple-faced rage proponent of amnesty, who has the nerve to run for re-election in Arizona. The two hyprocrites whine about "trials" for terrorists when they are INSTRUMENTAL in letting them infiltrate our borders in the first place! Time to get rid of these traitors by electing conservatives to do the work the RINO's refuse to do. Support J.D. Hayworth against McAmnesty--let's have another Massachusetts!

Sir, all due respect, but you just mentioned a rather large laundry list of individuals who know about this incident, and likely most did not sign any sort of non-disclosure agreement. Let's assume no CID Agents spoke to the press. You still have the General's staff, the Post CoS's staff, and the PMO staff. The PMO is more than one person. That's a lot of knowledgeability. If this story is true, I'm surprised it didn't get out sooner. One more thing: if there is a terrorist nexus, there are more people involved than CID.

You also mentioned McVeigh. Look, McVeigh didn't carry out his murdering mayhem while shouting "allahu akbar" or anything at all referring to his creator. Lastly, you have the audacity to say "we don't know any muslims." AGAIN you're wrong. So please, get some new lines. These lines have been worn out.

Wow. I saw nothing about killing? Or lack of caring? But I do see the common sense, that since such a pattern is continuing, precautions must be taken. We're not talking about prison camps (like we did with the Japanese). We're talking about taking them out of sensitive government positions. Agreed, the fault doesn't rest with ALL of them, but as history has proven, the few make it difficult for the many.

As Christians, we are to love everyone, regardless of race, creed, color, sex, whatever. But the safety of our nation requires common sense practices. If this was a one-time occurrence, I would say we were over-reacting. But it has been at least 4, with obviously chances of more that are being covered up to keep the public from “over-reacting”.

Screening has apparently not been as effective as we prefer. I personally wouldn't want that job! Therefore, it becomes a question of common sense safety, keeping them out of sensitive positions, not killing or lack of caring.
