Top lawmakers on Capitol Hill are challenging the U.S. military to rethink how it classifies terrorist attacks on U.S. soil after the Defense Department decided the 2009 attack at Fort Hood and the attack on a recruiting office in Arkansas were domestic killings rather than flash points in the global war on terrorism.
A man who killed one Arkansas soldier and wounded another - an act he called retribution for the deaths of Muslims abroad - took an unexpected plea deal Monday that abruptly ended his murder trial and spared him the death penalty.
A lawyer for a man accused of killing a soldier outside an Arkansas recruiting center says his client drove through three states looking for someone to attack after seeing video of U.S. military action in the Middle East.
The Muslim man who confessed to shooting two soldiers outside a military recruiting station in Arkansas, and killing one, claims he's being treated like a common criminal with a state murder charge.
"I may appear normal on the outside, but inside, I'm screaming," he said.
He has confessed to The Associated Press, the judge handling his case and others, hoping the world would pay attention to the war he declared on the United States.
