Alleged Ft. Hood gunman may have 9/11 mosque link

Alleged Ft. Hood gunman may have 9/11 mosque link

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) – A key U.S. senator said Sunday he would begin an investigation into whether the Army missed signs that the man accused of opening fire at Fort Hood had embraced an increasingly extremist view of Islamic ideology.

Sen. Joe Lieberman’s call for the investigation came as word surfaced that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan apparently attended the same Virginia mosque as two Sept. 11 hijackers in 2001, at a time when a radical imam preached there. Whether Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, associated with the hijackers is something the FBI will probably look into, according to a law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

Classmates participating in a 2007-2008 master’s program at a military college complained repeatedly to superiors about what they considered Hasan’s anti-American views. Dr. Val Finnell said Hasan gave a presentation at the Uniformed Services University that justified suicide bombing and told classmates that Islamic law trumped the U.S. Constitution.

Another classmate said he complained to five officers and two civilian faculty members at the university. He wrote in a command climate survey sent to Pentagon officials that fear in the military of being seen as politically incorrect prevented an “intellectually honest discussion of Islamic ideology” in the ranks. The classmate also requested anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

Alleged Ft. Hood gunman may have 9/11 mosque link

I am going to say some things here that aren’t politically correct. In fact, some of it may very well be as bigoted as anything I have ever posted, bordering on HATE SPEECH regarding Islam.

Once again, I say to my readers, you have been warned!

The 1st thing I have to say isn’t so bad. Look at the title line of this post. ‘Alleged Ft. Hood gunman may have 9/11 mosque link’. Alleged? I guess that is the epitome of political correctness on the part of the media. I hate PCness, and that word just jumped off of the page.

Now, to the serious part, how damned desperate is our military? Don’t they vet their Officer Corps? This guy Hasan went to Mosque with a couple of the 9-11 hijackers? Even if that’s just a maybe, the Army somehow missed that little gem? The guy is a psychiatrist, an officer, he will be debriefing God only knows who in the chain of command, he’ll be hearing the deepest, darkest secrets of combat stressed troops and this guy MAY have attended Mosque with some of the 9-11 attackers?

Hasan has numerous complaints filed. He was an Islamic radical long before he snapped and went on his rampage at Ft. Hood. Others saw it, made their opinions known and nothing was done? This wasn’t even looked into?

“If Hasan was showing signs, saying to people that he had become an Islamist extremist, the U.S. Army has to have zero tolerance,” Lieberman, an independent from Connecticut, said on “Fox News Sunday.”"He should have been gone.”

Lieberman has hit this one on the head. An investigation does need to be launched, an immediate investigation that gets ALL the facts and lets the cards fall where they may.

I make absolutely NO secret of the fact that I detest Islam and every one of it’s followers. I don’t believe Islam belongs in America and I know for damned certain that Islam has NO place in our armed forces, but I am also convinced that the PCness brought on our military when the *Don’t ask, don’t tell* bullshit was started is also the PCness that keeps our military screeners and recruiters from being able to ask the really hard questions.

Another thing I don’t understand, Islam is the sworn enemy of the United States, and of ALL free people the world over. WHY would a Muslim want to serve in our military in the 1st place?

Maj. Malik Nadal Hasan – The tale of the tape so far

Maj. Malik Nadal Hasan – The tale of the tape so far

From USA Today:
Military: Evidence points to solo shooter in Ft. Hood deaths

Nader Hasan, who described himself to Fox News as a cousin, said Hasan is a Muslim who went into the military against his parents’ wishes. Nader Hasan called his cousin a “good American” who never got into trouble, but added that he did not support the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“He had always wanted to just get away from the war and (that) environment,” Nader Hasan said. “He wasn’t someone who even enjoyed going to the firing range.”

CAIR came out with a press release before Barack Hussein Obama did. CAIR went into instant spin mode as they denied ANY involvement and offered their condolences and repeated their usual mantra regarding their not being involved. Maybe they weren’t involved, directly. Time will tell.

Hasan’s *cousin* describes him as a ‘good American’, one that went against his families wishes as he joined the U.S. Army. According to this *cousin*, Hasan was against the war in Afghanistan and Iraq. That strikes me as very strange. WHY would a now known to be Muslim of Jordanian decent want to join the U.S. military in the first place?

The *cousin* goes on to say, “He wasn’t someone who even enjoyed going to the firing range.” For a man that didn’t enjoy going to the range, Maj. Hasan exhibited a great deal of preparation and skill in his attack.

From further down in the USA Today story there is this;

U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul, a Republican from Austin, was briefed by military officials and said Hasan had taken some unusual classes for someone studying about mental health.

“He took a lot of extra classes in weapons training, which seems a little odd for a psychiatrist,” McCaul said.

McCaul, who had been briefed by military officials, said Hasan had received a poor grades for his work at Walter Reed and was not happy about his situation in Fort Hood, where Hasan apparently felt like “he didn’t fit in.”

It seems to me that perhaps Maj. Hasan had a personal agenda and that he apparently had his own family members fooled regarding his ‘dislike’ of going ‘to the range’.

Barack Hussein Obama weighs in with this;

From MSNBC: Obama: Don’t jump to conclusions on rampage

FORT HOOD, Texas – President Barack Obama said the “entire nation is grieving right now” over the mass killings at Fort Hood. He urged people not to jump to conclusions while law enforcement officials gather facts about the shootings.

Of course we are grieving, well, Christian Americans are grieving. It is, in MY opinion, only a natural reaction for Barack Hussein Obama to immediately come forward and say ‘don’t jump to conclusions’, he has to defend his Islamic brothers. Islam comes before ALL for some people it appears, and we all know that Obama has made it abundantly clear what his views are.
