An alert issued by the Army says an AWOL Muslim soldier who had weapons stashed in a motel room near Fort Hood has admitted planning an attack on the Texas post.

The email alert sent to all Army units Thursday and obtained by The Associated Press says the man arrested by Killeen police a day earlier had a large quantity of ammunition, weapons and a bomb inside a backpack.

It says he admitted under questioning to planning an attack on Fort Hood.

The FBI plans to charge Pfc. Naser Abdo with possessing bomb-making materials after gunpowder and other items were found in his nearby Killeen motel room.

Fort Hood is the same post where 13 died in 2009 in the worst mass shooting ever on a U.S. military installation.

    Muslims are passe' now that Bin Laden was (ahem) killed. You can't have martial law and round up white folk unless you have a white Bin Laden, too. I think that Norwegian guy qualifies. Now that Fox News is tying in the Tea Party to the terrorism the fun cannot be far off.

    Hey Janet Napolitano - He fits your terrorist warning description perfectly! So be careful about this right wing, white, fundamental Christian, terrorist! Oops, that statement was wrong. The truth is that he is just another Radical Islamic Terrorist! So much for profiling. PC is such a sham! MS. Napolitano, you should be fired - not just as the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, but from any job, period!

    "Hi! I'm a very intelligent and dangerous terrorist and by the way I was going to blow up something. Let me show you where I keep the stuff. Gee, even I can't believe this story. Why would anyone else?"

    Wouldn't be surprised if the FBI gave him the stuff.
