Suspected military shooter Yonathan Melaku Thursday pleaded guilty to firing into military installations throughout the region.
Prosecutors charged Melaku last year, saying they have evidence linking him to a series of overnight shootings in October and November of 2010 at a number of military buildings in northern Virginia. No one was injured in the shootings.
“Yonathan Melaku pled guilty to carrying out a calculated, destructive campaign to instill terror throughout our community,” said U.S. Attorney Neil MacBride. “The video he filmed during one drive-by shooting is a chilling portrayal of his intent and the escalating danger he posed. Thanks to the FBI and their law enforcement partners, we were able to apprehend Mr. Melaku, develop the evidence that linked him to the shootings, and secure this conviction today.”
As the federal judge questioned Melaku Thursday whether he committed each of these crimes, Melaku replied quietly "Yes sir," with his hands clasped behind his back.
FBI Special Agent Jacqueline Maguire said, "This case shows that there is violent, homegrown extremism in our community."
Notice the words missing from Agent Maquire: radical Jihadist. Why? It it because the Muslim Brotherhood friendly Obama Regime doesn't want to offend CAIR?
Look at the video of Melaku driving up I-95 after shooting at the Marine Corps Museum near Quantico, VA, yelling "Allah Akbar" with a mask and Islamic music in the back ground.
This is chilling...this is the face of the enemy that liberals and Obama want to deny is a threat to us.
