A U.S. soldier, who was charged with plotting an attack on Fort Hood troops in 2011, has been found guilty on all counts.
Private First Class Naser Jason Abdo, a Muslim soldier who was AWOL from Fort Campbell, Ky., will face life imprisonment for attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction.
Abdo was attempting to blow up a Texas restaurant where Fort Hood personnel came in large numbers, the New York Post reports.
Prosecutors said that Abdo was arrested on July 27, 2011, just hours before he was assembling a bomb.
