December 8, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Though details are sketchy, according to a Baltimore Sun breaking story a 21 year old local man has been arrested on suspicion of attempting to bomb the Cantonville, Maryland Armed Forces recruiting center.
"Federal authorities say Antonio Martinez, also known as Muhammad Hussain, attempted to detonate what he believed to be a vehicle bomb this morning at the Armed Forces Career Center in the 5400 block of Baltimore National Pike..." [source, Justin Fenton and Tricia Bishop, Arrest made in plot to blow up Baltimore-area military recruiting center, http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/bs-md-bomb-plot-arrest-20101208,0,739343.story]
As was the case two weeks ago in the Portland Pioneer Courthouse Square plot, the alleged perp thought he was working with supporters of the mujadineen and jihad, when in actuality he was "plotting" with FBI undercover agents in a classic sting.
In the Sun piece, Hussain, is claimed to have been obsessed with jihad and an admirer of Maj. Nidal Hassan's Ft. Hood massacre. Hussain felt that the West was at war with Islam and that striking out against the military was therefore called for.
