Soldier Who Planned Fort Hood Attack Sentenced
Abdo was planning an attack on a restaurant in Fort Hood, to which soldiers frequented, because he did not approve of the military’s actions in Afghanistan. When he was sentenced for his plot Friday, he vowed to continue on his chosen path.
A federal judge sentenced him to two life terms without a chance of parole. U.S. Attorney Robert Pitman compared Abdo’s plan to the recent shootings in Aurora, Colorado and at the Sikh Temple in Milwaukee.
