Fort Hood Shooter Is Terrorist Jihadi, Military Knew About It Months Ago.
Posted by Casey on November 9, 2009
There is so much wrong with this case. Why did he get promoted when he had poor performance reviews? Why didn’t Army brass take action when his pro-terrorist writings, musings, arguments, and the like became known?
Now the military is saying they were aware that he tried to contact al Qaeda?
U.S. intelligence agencies were aware months ago that Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan was attempting to make contact with people associated with al Qaeda, two American officials briefed on classified material in the case told ABC News.
It is not known whether the intelligence agencies informed the Army that one of its officers was seeking to connect with suspected al Qaeda figures, the officials said.
I remember the good ‘ol days when we used to remove, isolate, interrogate, and possibly kill these threats. Now we just move them around, give them promotions, and let them work with our returning veterans.
Is political correctness to blame for this tragedy?
One person says that it is, and good American soldiers are dead because of a fear of being honest.
We must rid ourselves of the foolish notion that we’re being broadminded when we ignore vitriolic loathing of our culture and our lifestyle. Refusing to take action against evil for fear of being guilty of stereotyping has resulted in flag-draped coffins for thirteen of America’s finest. What occurred at Fort Hood is even more stunning because it exposes a weak-willed mentality that has become woven into the fabric of the mightiest military force in the history of the world.
Now we’ve also learned that one of Maj. Hasan’s friends was happy he killed these soldiers.
Questions were being asked in Texas this weekend about the friendship between the US Army psychiatrist Nidal Malik Hasan, who killed 13 people in a shooting spree at the Fort Hood military base last Thursday, and a young man called Duane Reasoner Jnr. Interviewed by the BBC on Friday, Reasoner said he felt no pity for Hasan’s victims because “they were troops who were going to Afghanistan and Iraq to kill Muslims”.
A tape of the interview, conducted by Gavin Lee of the BBC, has ended up on YouTube and other sites and is getting an angry response from Americans still shocked by Hasan’s deadly rampage.
Reasoner is 20 years younger than Hasan. The pair became friends through the local mosque in Killeen – the nearest town to the vast army camp – where Hasan regularly prayed and where Reasoner, who was brought up as a Catholic, was completing his conversion to Islam.
I was listening to the radio the other day, and callers were still arguing against calling this what it is … a terrorist, jihadi attack on the United States.
