Recent news that the U.S. Army is investigating accusations of threats made by Muslim soldiers at Fort Jackson, South Carolina has sparked a wave of questions and concern, the CBN website reported yesterday (February 20, 2010).
Army spokesman Christopher Gray told the Christian Broadcast Network (CBN) News that in December 2009, five Muslim men were questioned after they allegedly threatened to poison food in the Fort Jackson mess hall (cafeteria).
The men are no longer in custody, but many people wonder why it took so long for the Army to release details of this incident.
Gray said that to protect the integrity of the investigation, he could not comment further at this time. He stressed that the investigation is "open and continuing."
