Two Muslim Converts Arrested for Bomb Plot at Military Recruitment Center in Seattle

Last night, two Muslim converts were arrested for plotting to blow up a military recruitment center in Seattle. The facility also houses a day care center.

The two men were identified as Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif (formerly known as Joseph Anthony Davis) and Walli Mujahidh (formerly known as Frederick Domingue, Jr.). Abdul-Latif and Mujahidh tried to recruit a third man but he went to the authorities instead. It is worth noting that the third man (who has not been identified) met Abdul-Latif and Mujahidh while serving in prison. Naturally, one wonders if they converted to Islam during their incarceration.

This arrest comes a little over week after New York Republican Congressman Peter King held hearings concerning Muslim radicalization in American prisons. 

Unfortunately, I don't think the matter of Muslim radicalization in our prisons will be taken seriously until these converts to Islam are successful in killing a large number of civilians. And even under those circumstances, the Obama Administration bend over backwards telling us not to jump to conclusions. Well, better to jump to conclusions than to have to jump out of windows.

UPDATE: Abdul-Latif said the bomb plot was inspired by the Fort Hood attacks. Yet I am sure the Obama Administration will invariably say, "Nothing to see here!!! Nothing to see here!!!"
