It is astounding that seventeen years after 9/11 that it would be newsworthy that the FBI called a jihad attack “jihad,” but the denial and willful ignorance have been pandemic, and made into official U.S. policy during the Obama administration. This is a small step back to sanity for the still largely clueless and corrupt FBI. Much more is needed.“FBI continues investigation into deadly NAS Pensacola shooting, calls motive ‘jihad,'” by Michael Warrick, WALA, January 30, 2020:_________________________________________________________________PENSACOLA, Fla. (WALA) – Nearly two months after a Saudi national killed three young sailors aboard NAS Pensacola, the FBI says its investigation is “ongoing,” stopping short of disclosing what the shooter was doing in the hours leading up to the tragedy.The FBI and base commander spoke to reporters Thursday, but declined to answer how Mohammed Alshamrani, got a gun onto the base prior to the shooting. The FBI is working with Apple to look at two phones that were in Alshamrani’s possession.“We have no evidence that there were any co-conspirators,” FBI Special Agent in Charge, Rachel Rojas said. “However we are still seeking the cooperation of Apple so we can look through the two I-Phones.”…

_______________________________________________Arkansas: Muslim who shot two soldiersclaims that as a terrorist, he shouldn’thave been tried in state courtBY ROBERT SPENCERrepublished below in full unedited for informational, educational and researchpurposes:Appeals of this kind tie up the Infidel’s resources, and although this one failed, the courts are so crazy these days that one never knows.Also, Abdulhakim Muhammad has a point. Attacks like his are not criminal cases. He is a soldier in a war. He should be regarded as such.“Man who shot 2 soldiers in ’09 loses appeal bid Terrorist defense rejected,” by Hunter Field, Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette, January 31, 2020:The Arkansas Supreme Court on Thursday tossed out the appeal of the man who shot two soldiers, killing one, at a Little Rock recruiting station in 2009.Abdulhakim Muhammad had argued that he shouldn’t have been tried for murder in state court because several congressmen and government officials had referred to the shooting as “international terrorism” by a “foreign terrorist organization.”Muhammad, a radical convert to Islam, shot and killed Pvt. William Long of Conway and injured Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula of Jacksonville at the Little Rock Army-Navy Career Center on Rodney Parham Road 11 years ago.Muhammad, who pleaded guilty in 2011 and was sentenced to 12 life sentences plus 540 months in prison, contended that only a federal court had jurisdiction over his crimes. He said he was denied the ability in state court to raise some defenses available in federal or military court….Muhammad, who said the shooting was retaliation for U.S. military actions in the Middle East, filed the petition for a writ of habeas corpus. He was not represented by an attorney.Muhammad in his appeal also pointed out that Long and Ezeagwula were eventually awarded Purple Hearts. The two soldiers were initially denied Purple Hearts because they weren’t injured in a traditional overseas conflict, but the commendations were awarded after Sen. John Boozman, R-Ark., authored a provision to extend the awards to people killed or injured by people in contact with and inspired by terrorist groups.
