Dad: “Obama Denied My Dead Soldier Son a Medal b/c US Muslim Killed Him”; Muslim’s Dad Agrees

By Debbie Schlussel

As longtime readers know, I’ve been following the case of Carlos Bledsoe a/k/a Abdul Hakim Mujahid Mohammed, a Muslim who murdered U.S. soldiers on U.S. soil while they were performing recruiting duties at a military recruitment center in Little Rock, Arkansas. As I told you, Melvin Bledsoe, father of Mohammed, has repeatedly noted that Islam made his son do these killings. Now, Melvin Bledsoe and Daris Long, father of Pvt. Andy Long–who was murdered in Mohammed’s jihadist attack, are bravely calling out President Obama and his administration for fighting the award of a Purple Heart to Private Long. In today’s USA Today, they say the Obama administration is doing this because it does not want to admit that Muslims on U.S. soil target and murder Americans and have since 9/11. They also provide other information that was not broadcast in press reports about Mohammed’s terrorist attack on the Little Rock recruitment center: that prior to seeking–and succeeding–to kill a U.S. soldier, Mohammed had already firebombed one area rabbi’s house and shot up another rabbi’s home. Maybe the press didn’t tell us about this because they don’t want us to know the truth: that Muslims on U.S. soil are no less violent, anti-Semitic, and anti-American than Muslims in the heart of Riyadh or Bint Jbeil. They are part of the documentary, “Losing Our Sons,” produced by Charles Jacobs.


After Carlos Bledsoe Became Abdul Hakim Mujahid Mohammed, He Murdered Pvt. Andy Long in the Name of Islam

Unfortunately, Charles has enlisted a number of con artists and liars to his cause, none of whose praise means anything good for the documentary. That includes con woman Hanan Qahwaji Tudor a/k/a “Rachel Cohen” a/k/a “Nour Saman” a/k/a “Brigitte Gabriel”–whose entire “life story” is fiction and whose past career mostly involved trying to convert Jews, while working for Pat Robertson in Israel. This tarnishes the documentary, as does the endorsement of Jeff Jacoby, who lectured us that Gitmo Islamic terrorists have a special need for modesty supreme to all other religions and and to the safety of all law-abiding American citizens. It’s also troubling that two other endorsers, Daniel Pipes and Frank Gaffney, do a phony kabuki dance, refusing to ever admit any problem with Islam, just some mythical thing called “Islamism” (so does Tudor a/k/a the multiple con artist names she’s used). It’s completely dishonest. Both have repeatedly pimped America on extremist Mohammed Zuhdi Jasser, who is tight with the Minneapolis-area imam that sent Somali boys to become homicide bombers in Somalia, and has repeatedly made excuses for the imam (who was on the no-fly list.) The movie’s latest “endorser,” Mike Hucksterbee, recently attacked Jews on his FOX News show along with John Ramsey (who may have helped kill his daughter, JonBenet Ramsey and allowed his toddler daughter out at sickening beauty contests). The only one missing from this list of charlatans and snake oil salesman is stalker and fake terrorist Walid Shoebat. Charles, you know better than to engage these frauds in your efforts. It makes me doubt the efforts and whether you know what you are doing. In any event, the message of the two dads is good, even if the messages of those they’ve chosen to ally with are utter crap and, frankly, diametrically opposed. But here’s a tip for everyone involved: Carlos Bledsoe didn’t convert to Islamism or go to an Islamist mosque. It’s Islam, stupid. He converted to Islam, and his mosque was an Islamic mosque. Period.

This spring, the Obama administration threatened to veto the 2013 Defense Authorization Act. Of all the reasons given for the threat, the objection to granting the Purple Heart to Pvt. Andy Long stands out as strange. That is, unless you know the story.

On June 1, 2009, Pvt. Long was killed outside an Army recruiting office in Little Rock by Carlos Bledsoe, who had become Abdul Hakim Mohammed after converting to Islam. Since then, we, the fathers of Carlos and Andy, have been trying to tell our story so that other parents do not experience our tragedy.

Carlos grew up in a loving, church-going family. There’s a picture of Carlos at his high school graduation with a huge smile on his face, ready to go off to Tennessee State University for college. He looked forward to becoming a businessman and joining the family owned tour company in Memphis.

But he did not get the education everyone expected. Instead, he became interested in Islamic extremism. At TSU, preachers from a radical Nashville mosque led courses in Islam. Eventually, Carlos began frequenting this mosque, converted, and took the name of the mosque’s imam. This imam taught worshipers that America “is the worst country on earth,” that the Christian faith is “the greatest lie ever told,” that this worldly life “is trash,” and that Muslims must seek death and the afterlife.

Carlos began to change his behavior: He abandoned his dog in the woods because he was told Muslims shouldn’t have dogs. He took Martin Luther King’s picture off his bedroom wall. He was sent by another Nashville imam to a school in Yemen, which turned out to be an al-Qaeda front. Carlos then returned to America and planned his own jihad.

Andy grew up in a military family and decided to follow in his parents’ footsteps. He found out he was good at it; he enjoyed it. Before being deployed to South Korea, he volunteered to work as a recruiter in Little Rock near our home. His mother, Janet, went to visit him there on June 1, 2009.

That was the day Carlos decided to kill a soldier. He had already firebombed a rabbi’s house in Nashville and shot up another rabbi’s house in Little Rock. That morning, he fired three bullets at Andy. Quinton Ezeagwula, another soldier, was also shot but survived. . . .

Congress passed a provision, as part of the defense bill, to give the Purple Heart to Andy and the victims of a similar 2009 attack at Fort Hood, Texas. Now the administration is threatening to deny it.

The president, we believe, doesn’t want to admit the first successful al-Qaeda murder on U.S. soil since 9/11 happened on his watch or to acknowledge the problem of homegrown Islamic radicalization. This indirectly provides cover to extremists at the expense of moderate Muslims. To withhold the Purple Heart from U.S. soldiers for political reasons is to dishonor those who risk everything to protect us all.

We have pledged to our families and to ourselves that we will not be silent until America knows what happened to our sons. On June 1, 2009, it happened to Andy and Carlos. Tomorrow, it could be your children.

Right on. Fantastic. These men make me proud to be an American. They get it. It’s so sad that they had to endure this tragedy to get there.

If only the rest of America would get it without such tragic consequences. But America is yet again asleep, as very quickly after 9/11 the slumber quickly returned with a thick layer of political correctness as the bedding, the sheets, and the mattress.

They lost their sons. How many Americans must lose their sons and daughters before we wake up? A lot more, sadly.

But again, enlisting the con artist dregs of the earth to promote the movie doesn’t help their cause one bit. They need to be more careful about with whom they associate.

Those endorsers…. well its bad judgment on their part but it doesn’t take away anything from their powerful message.

Islam is the problem even if our Prez and America refuse to acknowledge it. And its not going to go away any time soon.

With your caveat in mind, people should still see this documentary. They should re-learn that American Muslims are just as violent, anti-Semitic and extreme as those abroad.

And one Pvt. Andy Long was the victim of Islam. Period. Let’s never forget – or forgive!

    Agreed – Hussein is also a real lowlife.

    David on July 9, 2012 at 4:05 pm

Debbie, thanks once again for this story and the article, well articulated and spot on. To be honest with you DS and everybody who’s followed this story, I didn’t know that Bledsoe/Mohammed made an anti-semitic attack on two jewish rabbis? Apparently the media didn’t want noone in this country to know that part, because according to the godforsaken left wing MSM, they don’t want us in this country to show sympathy to jewish folks (how sad and sick of the left wing media).

And Norman I couldn’t agree with you anymore sir, when you said that many Muslim-Americans here in the US are anti-semitic and pretty violent as those abroad throughout the middle east and southeast asia.

I got one thing to say to some folks whether there on the liberal-left or the conservative-right, if all muslims here in the US are so peaceful (there are a few to some here and there, I know that), then how come in the past Ms. Schlussel has recieved TONS of anti-semitic hate-mails towards her in her email inbox from the so-called peaceful muslims you schmucks pimp on us. And also, there peaceful and nice, then why is that a good number of them have sent DS ALOT death-threat plots on her life, rape-threats, torture-threats, etc.? And to Debbie’s credit, she’s prosecuted a good number of those muslim-fanatic zealots who sent her those vile and disgusting death-threats, rape-threats, etc. on her livelihood. Folks have just gotta wake the hell up and see reality for what it is!

While I think there is definitely a need for this young soldier to be recognized, the Purple Heart may not be it. The Purple Heart has always been for wounded Soldiers in a “combat zone” and I am not sure I am ready to declare the entire US a combat zone. Are you?

This is from the Washington Times—

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.

Those classifications mean the dozens who were wounded or killed at Fort Hood, Texas, and those killed or injured in Little Rock, Ark., were not eligible for Purple Heart medals — a ruling that House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter T. King and Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman want to change.

They have introduced legislation that would allow domestic attacks on service members to be reviewed the same way as international terrorist attacks when it comes to awarding the Purple Heart, which is the military’s decoration for troops wounded or killed while in combat zones.

While muslims are just cult ridden pieces of crap, we should not bend our long-standing honored military traditions just because of them…

Sean J on July 9, 2012 at 3:34 pm

    Sean J,

    While I do see your point, is this not the same as a police officer dying while on duty. Andy’s job was at the recruiting office. He was doing his duty at the time of his shooting. The war on terrorism is not going to be a conventional war, as has already been seen too often. The rock star prez just does not want to admit that this could have happened on his watch, plain and simple.

    WilliamMunny on July 9, 2012 at 3:54 pm

      It doesn’t have to be in a war zone. Just active duty. My ex-husband was AG corps and he was pretty amazed at the latitude of reasons for which a Purple Heart may be awarded. I don’t remember them but definitely not what you would think. I think this young soldier should get an even higher award if possible and if y’all don’t think you’re in a war, let me spell it out for you “I-N-T-I-F-A-D-A.

Black muslims in this country are a huge threat to the American way of life, liberty and justice. The faster these pests are eliminated the better for civilized Americans.

FrenchKiss on July 9, 2012 at 3:41 pm

Also, 10 USC 1131 says

(6) After 28 March 1973, as the result of an international terrorist attack against the United States or a foreign
nation friendly to the United States, recognized as such an attack by the Secretary of Army, or jointly by the
Secretaries of the separate armed services concerned if persons from more than one service are wounded in the attack.

The idiot muslim was an American and the attack was launched from inside the US…not an international terrorist attack. That is why the soldiers on 9/11 should have gotten theirs…that was an international attack by international terrorists….

Personally, the soldiers killed in Arkansas, Fort Hood, etc should be given the Medal of Freedom for dying at the hands of islamic terrorists and make Obama choke it down while he places those medals on hero’s grave sites.

Sean J on July 9, 2012 at 3:41 pm

    Again I see your point, but this terrorist was no more American by the time he converted to extremism than the mutts that hijacked the planes on 9/11. He was devoted to killing Americans, not to America. But I do like you idea about having our muslim prez giving them their medals, whichever medals they may be.

    WilliamMunny on July 9, 2012 at 4:05 pm

    The idiot muslim was an American and the attack was launched from inside the US…not an international terrorist attack.

    Sean J on July 9, 2012 at 3:41 pm

    No Muslim is an American. Their “nationality” is Islam. So any attack on non-Muslims is an international terrorist attack.

    John M. on July 9, 2012 at 4:58 pm

Never has, never will deserve the title of Commander in Chief.

Road Warrior on July 9, 2012 at 4:06 pm

@FrenchKiss…I couldn’t agree you more.

Patrick on July 9, 2012 at 4:14 pm

And yet millions of morons are going to re-elect this traitor.

Jonathan E. Grant on July 9, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    Jon, you’re correct – the economy is in the toilet, most of America’s debt is owed by the Chinese and America is the world’s laughingstock and most people in this country still want to re-elect Obama.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he won another term. His GOP Romney is only slight better and offers no great improvement.

    America is screwed.

    NormanF on July 9, 2012 at 4:54 pm

Thank you for publishing this story Debbie. This story would never ever hit the front pages of John Siegenthaler’s Nashville Tennessean.
Unfortunately, Brigette Gabriel makes numerous appearances on Steve Gill’s morning show on WLAC 1510 as an expert on terrorism.
John Guandola has also made appearances in Tennessee. I wish that a wealthy individual would sponsor you so that you could set the record straight.
Credit liberalism and Islam for the rot, decay, and crime in our major Southern cities.
Carlos Bledsoe is not the only “student” who has been brainwashed by the Muslims. There are numerous other students on the campuses of Tennessee State, Fisk, Vanderbilt, and other campuses in the South who have been brainwashed to think that the Religion Of Lucifer is a Religion of Peace
I see the hijabs, burkas, and all of that Islamic crap throughout the South and I just want to throw up.

DS I love and appreciate how you give us the good-guts on so-called “good Conservative” frauds especially since the truth you tell is never whispered by other so-calleds in the Lumpenconservatariat (I finally remembered that word!). The one that fascinates me most is “Brigitte Gabriel”. I would NEVER know about how she cannot be trusted if I didn’t come here and know you tell it like it is and you’ve done your research to KNOW the facts others hide. One may want to say she talks a good game but lately don’t they all (aka Michelle Fraudkin)? It’s disgusting how they all cover from each other. That’s why this site is so valid and valuable.

And for the stupids who continue to doubt you, I hope someone can translate how nicely you pointed out all the frauds and STILL could relate to the two parents involved. What a tangled web it is when one is trying to navigate the labyrinth of so-called “Conservatism” AND the reality of Islam. The sicko religion (and more) that shows it’s fangs daily but still insists it’s a puppy-dog. It makes my brain explode (Islam, the fraud of it, how people won’t acknowledge it and the wimpy Conservatives who are tricked by the trickers (maybe on purpose!) and the cast of dummies you mentioned) so I can’t image how you process it.

Jacoby, Gaffney and Pipes are disappointing because those who can’t see what you see think they are on our side. Pipes is especially disappointing because he was one of the few to print (only once, I believe) that the plane that went down in East Rockaway 2 months after 9/11 could have been a shoe-bomber. It still amazes me the lack of ANYTHING written on that plane crash (I can’t believe I even may have forgotten the number!! 587?) but it’s been years since I have researched it because I had no articles to source other than Pipes’. Lots and lots about how “9/11 Was An Inside Job” thou’. What a crazy world!

And Mohammed Zudhi Jasser. I think before the July 4th break clowny Glenn Beck was talking tough on Jihad and then had Zudhi Jasser come on and practically cleaned his back-side for him. It was disgusting to behold. Why even bother if you’re gonna warn of a true danger and they invite in some taqiyya charlatan? It’s crazy!

Anyway, I saw all that in this great column and I am gonna read it again and make sure it sinks in. I am so glad this site is where I come for the serious stuff. Much thanks!

Never understood why blacks become Muslim. Muslims (Saudis)have taken over 50,000 black Africans(Sudanese) as slaves in the last ten years. The Muslim book, the Koran, promotes human slavery, which is evil.

Truth on July 9, 2012 at 9:21 pm

Many of the Muslim converts are coming from the ‘top drawers’ of the prison system. Working on the psychological factor that the inmate incarceration will be better off converting to a religion rather than nothing. Here is where the Imam says ‘well they don’t drink, have numerous wives, sex on demand, plenty babies with welfare benefits, females who will not cause trouble by being verbally handcuffed’, a fabulous community place to meet every Friday and more time spent on the knees than upright, all aided and abetted by one billion people who can’t be wrong’…..sounds glorious, doesn’t it. Just what any doofus, will subscribe too.

When converts with newly acquired weird beards start running off to Yemen, Pakistan and destination training camps, the authorities need to be notified. Don’t they need visas and travel documents.

Instead of inconveniencing and taxing the bejeezus out of the poor taxpayer through phony TSA and security issues, the WH incumbent and his coterie of poodle politicians need to take a stand on this burgeoning inside enemy. The 800 kg gorilla in the room, is being patted and stroked instead. After 4 years the evidence will show that the feeding bill has reached billions and the printing press will soon run out of paper.

An article worth reading:

Who the hell in their right mind would be phoning Somalia. Abusing our system has become second nature to our enemy because they’re getting away with it. Open the doors folks, plenty more to come…..

Eyes Wide Open on July 9, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    Truth and Eyes very good points! Bravo.

    Seems the American blacks are being duped by all in the sick game. They have Dems and Liberals using them to stay in power (and providing virtual crumbs and a crummy living situation) and the biggest charlatans are the Moooooooslims/Arabs.

    Arab slave trade pre-dates the TransAtlantic one by 800 years and while USA ended the heinous practice over 100 years ago the Arab slave trade is still alive and kicking with mucho malice. Yet you have know-nothing Liberals dipped completely in guilt and the Arabs have never felt guilt because their trade (and hatred of blacks) rages on.

    And I wonder what the “feminists” would do if they knew the Arabs preferred their slaves female? They are so ridiculous and know nothing. They make me sicker than I thought I could ever feel. Behind all that anger at men and the “patriarchy” is a lot of stupidity and mental-illness. Any “real” feminist would have gotten out 20 years ago when it appeared so clear that the problem with women is women (mostly) and feminists are selling jive.

    I know I get sad (when I really ponder it) how black Americans have been hamstrung by the Liberals and Dems. Then I think about how the black Moooooooslims are being duped and I have to give it a rest.

    Skunky on July 9, 2012 at 9:43 pm

There’s more to this than meets the eye. A key problem in offering the Purple Heart to those KIA/WIA in the Ft Hood attack and others is that by doing so we would be declaring the perpetrators as enemy combatants. Doing this places them under different jurisdiction than as a mere act of criminal violence. As the latter, it is very unlikely that the perps will get the death penalty, even with Hasan’s court martial. On the other hand, if they ARE enemy combatants, then the acts were committed either in the uniform of their enemy, or in civilian clothes. Either way, the Geneva/Hague Conventions allow for near-summary execution of the perpetrators (which would be demanded of Hasan for certain). By avoiding the classification of enemy combatants, DOD is seeking to minimize the vengeance taken on the perps (for whatever motives they might have).

Russ on July 9, 2012 at 9:42 pm

FrenchKiss, it’s not just Black Muslims who are a problem, it’s all Muslims who are a problem. John Walker Lindh was not Black, nor was David Hicks, Jose Padilla or Richard Reid. And don’t ever tell the Hizbos in Dearbornistan that they’re abed.

It’s a pity that the documentary has so many frauds who are not going to tell the truth about Islam, but only some imaginary concept called Islamism. Something that no Muslim ever admits exists.

Infidel on July 10, 2012 at 2:09 am

    So very well said, Infidel. Bravo!

    Skunky on July 10, 2012 at 9:49 am

Debbie once again you’ve hit one out of the park. Let me start off by saying that Pvt Andy Long is a patriot and deserves respect from our current CinC. That this feckless clown would be fighting a Purple Heart citation for this man is an abject disgrace. All because this clown’s administration wants to bury its collective head in the sand(as opposed to up their rears)when talking about Mulsims. Slander Christians and Jews until the cows come home(real cows not Michelle Obama) but say anything bad about the “peaceful religion” and see what happens. You’re also right Debbie about frauds like Brigitte Gabriel. Someone should tell her that just because you went to the Lamont Hill school of debating where you learn to talk el rapido you still sound like a dopey moronette. The rest of those mush heads Jacoby, Gaffney and Pipes have no balls when it comes to the crazy Muslims anyway so they suck right off the bat. My main upchuck factor is for that blockhead Mike(whinner)Huckabaloney. This fat fraud is still crying about how Limbaugh’s criticism of him is all wrong and that he should stop. Why Fox News has this man on just boggles my mind. But then I’m reminded that this is the same network who hired human barf bags Geraldo Rivera, Bob Beckel and Bill O’Reilly. And I agree with my man Sean. People have got to wake up to the realization that even though most American Muslims are peaceful the vast majority of them are crazy violent maniacs. The kooky hatemails that Debbie gets from them is testament to that fact.

Remember when the AF F-15s shot down the two Black Hawks over Iraq during the no-fly zones? An AF Lieutenant one of the of Black Hawks eventually got a purple heart because her family fought the USAF over it. So if she can get one for being shot down accidentally by her fellow airmen, then this young man should be awarded a purple heart after being targeted and killed.

Sean M on July 10, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    @ Sean M – conditions for getting the Purple Heart were expanded in 1995 (I think)to include wounds from friendly fire.

    DS_ROCKS! on July 10, 2012 at 3:22 pm

[Debbie, I recently spied this intriguing web bit.]

The Background Obama Can’t Cover Up !

Islam, part of the Living River of History, can affect even the 2012 US election!
The “headwaters” of this River was Adam, according to Judaism, Christianity, Islam etc .
In the OT (Deut. 28), “tributaries” wanting to join the River will be blessed while “distributaries” who want to flow away from it will be cursed. Those wishing to totally separate from the fresh Living River will end up as polluted, dying “oxbow lakes.”
In the OT we see Israelites repeatedly flowing away from God, then repenting and returning to Him; we also see heathen “oxbow lakes” creating their own “gods” and being allowed by God to plunder and kill the erring Israelites.
Then, at the right time, the Living River took on new life with the arrival of the Promised One who offers “living water.”
In the 7th century Islam, drawing from both OT and NT, chose to be a distributary away from this River. Many scholars have viewed it as the final Antichrist: note “scourge” (Isa. 28), “Assyrian” (Mic. 5), “Euphrates” (Rev. 9) etc.
God will allow this “scourge” to temporarily persecute and even kill apostate Jews (JINOs) and Christians (CINOs). Jews, especially in “entertainment,” seem more expert in apostasy than Christians since Jews have been at it 2000 years longer than Christians have – but Christians apparently want to catch up to the Jews!
It’s apparent that others will join Islam in its end-time inquisition; its great oil wealth can captivate many leaders and already we are seeing apostate American leaders being bribed into turning against true American patriots.
Those who ignore (or try to dilute or destroy) the God-ordained Living River of History will be swept down it to an ocean made by their own never-ending tears of agony and despair.
The good news is that American JINOs & CINOs can overcome the “scourge” discussed above. The secret is found by checking out “II Chronicles 7:14” & “John 3:16” on the web.
And there’s still time – and freedom – before the 2012 “End of America” election to Google or MSN “Obama Promotes Public Sex,” “Obama a Black-Slavery Avenger?,” “Pretrib Rapture Politics,” “Mikey Weinstein, Jesus-Basher” and “Christ’s return is NOT imminent.”
In light of Matthew 7:2, if we tolerate Christian leaders who lie to us and steal from us, we shouldn’t be surprised if God allows us to have political leaders who lie to us and steal from us!
