    Abdulhakim Muhammad Trial Begins MondayFriday, July 15 2011 Jury selection begins on Monday in Pulaski County Circuit Court in the trial against Abdulhakim Muhammad. He is the man accused of killing Private William Long and wounding Private Quinton Ezeagwula at a Little Rock recruiting center in 2009. The state is seeking the death penalty in this case, and Muhammad could become the first person sentenced to death in the U.S. for an act of terrorism since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, although that is not the charge against him. Muhammad was born Carlos Bledsoe in Memphis. He converted to Islam...

    The Department of Justice under Eric Holder is refusing to prosecute Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, who opened fire on an Arkansas recruiting center two years ago. This comes as Muhammad has admitted that he is an Islamic radical and has implicated himself for the murder. Despite this, the Federal government will not take the case. On the positive side, the state of Arkansas has agreed to do so-- and this will likely mean that Muhammad will face the death penalty for the fatal shooting. Muhammad is an American convert whose middle name even means 'one that fights jihad.' In 2009 he...

    Federal government isn't touching Arkansas terrorism caseBy Richard A. Serrano, Washington Bureau July 11, 2011, 5:01 p.m. Reporting from Little Rock, Ark., and Memphis - Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad insists he is an Islamic radical, has confessed to killing an Army soldier and wounding another at a Little Rock recruiting station two years ago, and wants to be tried on terrorism charges in federal court. But in an unusual twist, state prosecutors, with the blessing of the federal government, are treating him like a common American criminal and trying him in state court next week on capital murder charges. Either way,...

    When Monica Bledsoe spoke to her younger brother late last May, he seemed his old upbeat self. He had just led his first sightseeing tour of Little Rock, Ark., for their father’s new tour bus company and all went well. The tips had flowed. A week later, her brother, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, opened fire with a semiautomatic rifle on a military recruiting center in Little Rock, killing one soldier and wounding another. Ms. Bledsoe was stunned. “I would never have thought this could happen,” she said. Eight months after the shooting, Mr. Muhammad’s family is still sorting through the confusing...

    The man accused of killing one soldier and wounding another outside an Arkansas military recruiting center has asked a judge to change his plea to guilty, claiming ties to al-Qaida. Abdulhakim Muhammad's attorney, Claiborne Ferguson, said Thursday night that his client sent a letter earlier this month to the judge in his case asking to change his plea to capital murder and attempted capital murder charges. Ferguson said he hadn't discussed the request with his client before the letter was sent. Under Arkansas law prosecutors would have to agree and waive the death penalty before the judge could consider it,...

    A Tennessee man accused of killing a soldier outside a Little Rock, Ark., military recruiting station last year has asked a judge to change his plea to guilty, claiming for the first time that he is affiliated with a Yemen-based affiliate of Al Qaeda. In a letter to the judge presiding over his case, the accused killer, Abdulhakim Muhammad, calls himself a soldier in Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and calls the shooting “a Jihadi Attack” in retribution for the killing of Muslims by American troops. “I wasn’t insane or post traumatic nor was I forced to do this...

    A 23-year-old man charged with killing one soldier and seriously wounding another in a shooting outside an Army recruiting office in Little Rock, Ark., was once detained in Yemen for possessing a fake Somali passport and other counterfeit documents, law enforcement officials said Tuesday. The episode in Yemen prompted a preliminary inquiry by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other American law enforcement agencies into whether the man, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, had ties to extremist groups, the officials said. But that investigation was inconclusive, they said, leaving the bureau with insufficient evidence to wiretap his phone or put him under...

    When a right-wing Christian vigilante kills, millions of fingers pull the trigger. When a left-wing Muslim vigilante kills, he kills alone. These are the instantly ossifying narratives in the Sunday shooting death of late-term abortion provider George Tiller of Kansas versus the Monday shootings of two Arkansas military recruiters. Tiller's suspected murderer, Scott Roeder, is white, Christian, anti-government and anti-abortion. The gunman in the military recruitment center attack, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, is black, a Muslim convert, anti-military and anti-American. Both crimes are despicable, cowardly acts of domestic terrorism. But the disparate treatment of the two brutal cases by both the...

    An Arkansas man was arrested Monday in connection with a shooting at a Little Rock military recruiting center that killed one soldier and wounded another, authorities said. Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad -- a 24-year-old Little Rock resident formerly known as Carlos Bledsoe -- faces a first-degree murder charge and 15 counts of engaging in a terrorist act, Little Rock Police Chief Stuart Thomas said. The terrorist counts stem from the shots fired at an occupied building.
