Apparently he is a US naturalized citizen who carried Al-Qaeda and Taliban notes in his car.
A man carrying a suspicious package was detained in Arlington National Cemetery this morning after police searched his backpack and found the materials as well as pro-al Qaeda literature, officials told ABC News.
Police believe he was carrying ammonium nitrate and spent ammunition for an automatic weapon. Ammonium nitrate has been used in terrorist bombs.

The man has been ID’d as a Marine reservist.
Lee cited the proverbial case of the man who blew up an abortion clinic and proposed that this was an attempt by Christians to undermine U.S. law that allows a woman to get an abortion. Then she went on to intimate that Christians opposing the current abortion laws were tantamount to trying to overturn the government.
These statements were made during a hearing about Islamic radicalization in prisons. Of course, the difference is that nearly no Christian would support these methods to defend life.
It’s curious though: she thinks that only Christians are pro-life.
Eritreans who have fled one of the world’s most repressive regimes are facing unimaginable suffering once they arrive in Egypt, where an estimated 200 have fallen into the hands of human traffickers.
“They are in great danger from their government, which is one of the most severe persecutors of Christians in the world, and if they flee in the hope of a better life elsewhere, they face imprisonment, kidnap, torture, rape, beatings and even death,” said Patrick Sookhdeo, the international director of the Barnabas Fund, which provides aid to persecuted Christians. In addition, some refugees have reportedly had their organs harvested.
Both Pope Benedict and Christian Solidarity Worldwide have both of them denounced this problem. I hope other international organizations also denounce it the sooner the better.
Al Qaida has posted (again) on the page from which it intends to lead the global “jihad” (struggle), videos in which “Abu Musad Al Suri,” aka Syrian Mustafa Setmarian Nasar, a Spanish citizen, taught various techniques for carrying out attacks against civilian targets such as stadiums, trains, ships, airports and large buildings.
Those were already known recordings that recommended the use of kamikaze aircraft, as in the Sept/11 attacks and, in general, any explosive or weapon which would produce the most damage. But now, the videos have now been updated by the criminal group headed by Osama bin Laden, killed recently in Pakistan in a U.S. military action, and they have appeared after the new leaders, including Egyptian Ayman Al Zawahiri, have sworn revenge.
Spanish anti-terrorism experts consulted by La Razón emphasize that this does not increase the threat exists against the West after the death of Ben Laden, but “surely must be taken into account.” Setmarian was, until his arrest, one of the great theorists of the ‘military’ Al Qaida. This is a very dangerous terrorist, as evidenced by the recordings that have been broadcasted again.
Mustafa Setmarian Nasar has held Spanish nationaly since his marriage to a Spanish woman in the late 1980s.
