Five U.S. Army Arabic Translators Arrested at Fort Jackson in South Carolina

Five Muslim Soldiers Arrested at Fort Jackson in South Carolina

CBN News

CBN News has learned exclusively that five Muslim soldiers at Fort Jackson in South Carolina were arrested 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.

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, DC 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 has major implications.


And this from FOX News

Fox News has learned that the Army is investigating allegations that five individuals attempted to poison the food supply at Fort Jackson, South Carolina.

Chris Grey, a spokesman for the Army's Criminal Investigation Division, told Fox's Catherine Herridge that these are still just allegations, and so far "there is no credible information to support them". Nevertheless, an investigation is ongoing Grey said.

Two sources at Fort Jackson revealed that the five accused individuals were detained in December, and all were enrolled in an Arabic translation training program, referred to in the Army as "Lima 09". "Each of them uses Arabic as his first language", one source told Fox.


Wild Thing's comment.......

This would be the 4th actual attack under this administration.

I would LOVE to see all Muslims in our military disharged along with their PC supporters. Also I vote that the military gets to have their way these terrorist pigs in a secret, undisclosed location.

Can you believe it? !!! We are just now hearing about this. That is sick. More of the “system worked” from Napolitano?

I can just guess what their names might be if their first language is Arabic. Never trust a muslim. The military is going to have to profile muslims and do extensive psychological evaluations on each one. Of course, Maj Husan was a muslim and a psychiatrist. Shit! muslims are a crazy bunch.

Whatever gave the 'Brass' the Idea they could even trust an Arab. They are still operating under the impression that there are moderate Muslims more Onumnuts BS.

Hey, can we start profiling now? I think this is a pretty easy one.

If we must have arabic translators we need Christian Arabs, if any are left alive over there on perhaps recruit some here. Muslim needed to be banned from the military no matter what their rank---we don't need our guys looking over their shoulders when in battle or on the home front---just not worth it!!!
