Samek Hat

For years George Samek, a decorated Vietnam Veteran, and a great friend, has been an advocate for our Wounded Warriors.

Recently he started a new project “Warrior Connection” to get laptops with video cams into the hands of our wounded warriors in medical centers around the country so they could stay in touch with their families during their recovery.  George understands the morale boost having that contact gives our wounded warriors.  He started out with a goal of donating a single laptop equipped with a webcam.  In four weeks, as more people became aware of his mission, the number grew to twenty.

WECT6 the local TV station in Wilmington, NC, did a story on the project here.  Be sure to watch the video on the upper right!

George has plenty good to say about Best Buy, the national electronics chain, whose local store pitched in to supply the laptops and webcams at cost and configured them to function seamlessly.

On September 11, 2009, the laptops were presented to Wounded Warriors at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC.

Now George is working on making presentations at Camp Lejeune to our wounded Marines.

Another recent convert to Islam, Abdulhaqim Mujahid Muhammad, aka Carlos Bledsoe, decided to practice his knew belief in the “Religion of Peace” by emptying the magazine of his semi-automatic rifle at two American soldiers.  The two soldiers had recently completed Army basic training and were deployed back to their home town as part of the “Hometown Recruiting Assistance” program.  The soldiers were taking a break outside the doors of an Army/Navy Career Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, at about 10am, when the terrorist pulled up in his Ford SUV, unloaded his magazine, and sped off.

Private William Long, 23, of Conway, AR, was killed in the fusillade.  Private Quinton Ezeagwula, 18, of Jacksonville, AR, was seriously wounded.

Police apprehended the suspect on a highway overpass shortly thereafter and then executed a search warrant at his home.  They confiscated an SKS rifle, .380 semiautomatic pistol and a .22 rifle.

At an afternoon press conference, police stated that the terrorist attacked the soldiers for “ideological reasons” and “with the specific purpose of targeting the military”.  Left unstated was whether Bledsoe was converted in prison.

This is the latest and most deadly of a string of planned attacks on military personnel in the United States by Islamic fanatics.  We wrote recently about the planned attack on the Air National Guard in Newburgh, NY, and others have written about the planned attack on Fort Dix in New Jersey.

Our hearts go out to the families of Pvt Long and Pvt Ezeagwula, who were attacked not because of who they were, but what they represented, the best of America who would defend us against the evil represented in the murderous ideology that is being allowed to infiltrate our country through the prison system and through radical mosques.

Jihad Watch Update:  Terrorist went to Yemen for advanced jihad training:

I have learned from a well-placed source that Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, who killed one soldier and wounded another at a a Little Rock military recruiting center today, and who faces charges of terrorism as well as first-degree murder, has recently returned from Yemen, where he studied jihad with an Islamic scholar there.

Apparently the Islamic scholar under whom this American convert to Islam studied was yet another misunderstander of Islam’s true, peaceful teachings.

Perhaps it is time to take a closer look at all who have traveled to Yemen in the past seven years…

No statement from the White House on this domestic terrorist attack.

A milblogger asks “What is more important to President Obama?”

Not surprisingly, the main stream media is barely giving notice to this attack.
