Back in February 2010 a CBN columnist claimed that five American soldiers, all Muslims, were “arrested” over a supposed poison plot at Fort Jackson. The story went viral on conservative webpages and radio programs. But nothing ever came of it. There were no follow up stories.
Fact is, they were never arrested. They were questioned, and harassed, and humiliated, but never arrested. The army cleared them of all charges. But how do you put your life together when it has been dissected in this way? Richard Jewell never could. Neither have these soldiers been able to, as ABC discovered.
