No connection to earlier terrorist threat

2 Apr, 2014

An FBI spokeswoman says “there is no indication at this time” that an alert that an Army recruit planned a “Fort Hood-inspired jihad against U.S. soliders” is related to Wednesday’s shooting. Fox News reported on Monday (April 1) that the alert, referring to the 2009 shooting at Fort Hood that left 13 people dead, said FBI became aware of a recruit who had “publicly stated his intention to commit jihad, bidding farewell to his family and friends and making comments indicating his jihad was imminent.”
