And that sentence couldn't come soon enough...
Well isn't that what ya wanted?
Hang him. We’ll chat about it later. Maybe.
"He converted to Islam in 2004 at the age of 19 at Masjid As-Salam, a Memphis mosque. He said "I've loved jihad every since I became Muslim." He became more religious, and prayed regularly at the Islamic Center of Nashville, wearing Arab-style clothing. By 2007 he was a deeply religious Muslim and jihadist, and had legally changed his name."He traveled to Yemem in 2007. His flight to Yemen departed on September 11 of that year.
While in Yemen he made contact with a "local Islamic scholar" who taught him about jihad. He also married a Yemeni woman. Staying true to his past record of being a total screw-up, he neglected to file any of the necessary paperwork to stay in Yemen or to travel in Yemen. He had also entered Yemen on a Somali passport that was discovered to be fraudulant.
As a result, he was arrested at a roadside checkpoint in Yemen in November 2008, two months after his marriage. He then spent more than two months in a Yemeni prison; during this prison stay he decided to wage jihad on America. Go figure.
He was sprung from prison in Yemen as a result of government-to-government pressure from the United States (this would have been during the Bush 43 Presidency). He returned to the United States on 29 January 2008. He attacked the two recruiters on 1 June 2009. Both his targets had been out of basic training about two weeks on the day they were shot. One was killed, the other seriously wounded.
The father of the dead soldier was quoted as having said: "They weren't on the battlefield; but apparently, the battlefield's here."
