"Things the american propaganda wouldn't let you hear: the soldier who attacked his compatriots in the Pensylvania camp in Kuweit was a zionist jew. He attacked the tent of soldiers who have arab origins. One of the wounded was an american soldier of Lebanese origins." on 16:48:17 03/30/03 Sun

A U.S. soldier in an elite fighting force stationed in Kuwait probably acted out of resentment when he allegedly tried to blow up his comrades yesterday by throwing grenades into several tents, an Army spokesman said. One soldier was killed and 15 wounded.
Authorities said Sgt. Asan Akbar of California, a member of the 326th Engineer Battalion of the 101st Airborne Division, was taken into custody after the 1:30 a.m. incident at Camp Pennsylvania, located near the Kuwaiti border with Iraq, said George Heath, deputy public affairs officer at Fort Campbell, Ky., home of the 101st Airborne Division.
He said Akbar, who is a Muslim convert, had been having "what some might call an attitude problem." There were reports that Akbar had been disciplined during his deployment to the Persian Gulf, and another Army spokesman, Max Blumenfeld, said the motive in the attack "most likely was resentment." Investigators did not elaborate.
The dead soldier was identified as Capt. Christopher Scott Seifert, 27, of Easton, Pa. Three other soldiers were seriously wounded, seven others were recovering from non-life threatening wounds and five others who received minor injuries were returned to duty, Heath said. Ten of the injured had superficial wounds, including punctures to their arms and legs from grenade fragments.
Heath said as many as three tents, one containing the command staff, were targets of the incident, and that two to four grenades were thrown into the tents.
Akbar, who supervised four to seven soldiers, was found in a bunker. He had not been charged last night, but Heath said if charges are filed, Akbar would be tried in a military court.
"The investigation will continue," Heath said. "He will be retained in a detention facility pending results of the investigation. He will be tried by court- martial under the U.S. military code of justice."
The attack happened in the command center of the division's 1st Brigade. Initially, the military suspected the attack was the work of terrorists using two grenades and small-arms fire, Heath said.
Two Middle Eastern men hired as contractors by the U.S. government were detained and released. An Interior Ministry official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said yesterday that Americans still were investigating all locally contracted workers in the camp, such as cleaners, drivers and volunteer translators. Two Kuwaiti translators also were questioned and released.
"When this all happened, we tried to get accountability for everybody," Col. Frederick B. Hodges, commander of the division's 1st Brigade, told Britain's Sky News television. "We noticed four hand grenades were missing and that this sergeant was unaccounted for."
Akbar was found hiding in a bunker, said Hodges, who was slightly injured in the attack. "I immediately smelled smoke," he said. "I heard a couple of explosions and then a popping sound, which I think was probably a rifle being fired. It looks like some assailant threw a grenade into each of these three tents here."
One grenade went off in the command tent, Blumenfeld said. The tent, the tactical operations center, runs 24 hours a day and would always be staffed by officers and senior enlisted personnel.
A picture on yesterday's front page of The Tennessean newspaper in Nashville, Tenn., showed Hodges with blood on his uniform and his right arm in a sling. "He's an intense person and he'll recover," Heath said of Hodges.
Army Lt. Gen. John Abizaid called the grenade attack "very tragic and very unfortunate," while at a briefing in Qatar. "I don't think it's indicative of the morale of our forces."
The 101st Airborne is a rapid deployment force whose members are trained to go anywhere in the world within 36 hours.
The group's 22,000 members have been in Kuwait for about a month, Heath said. The last time the entire division was deployed was during the 1991 Persian Gulf War. Most recently, members of the group hunted down suspected Taliban and al-Qaida fighters in the mountains of Afghanistan.
