Here’s a disturbing but expected federal report as noted on abcnews.com:
‘A new Senate report on the 2009 Fort Hood shooting blames the FBI and Department of Defense for failing to recognize or act on alleged shooter Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan’s extremist views.
The report…. released by Senate Homeland Security Committee chairman Joe Lieberman and ranking Republican Susan Collins, says the FBI and DOD could have prevented the shooting if they had identified Hasan’s radical Islamist views and disciplined or discharged him before the attack occurred.
“Our report’s painful conclusion is that the Fort Hood massacre could have and should have been prevented,” Lieberman said at a press conference today.’ (end of excerpt)
And notice the wording… “alleged” shooter. This is pure folly. Everyone knows this guy did it. But in America today, you cannot even say that because of political correctness. Unbelievable.
The survivors of those who died at Fort Hood along with all those injured should sue the Army and the Obama administration for turning a blind eye to Hassan. This mass killing happened because we have an Islamophilic White House and Justice Department that wants civilian trials for known terrorists and apologizes to Muslims around the world for American foreign policy.
Of course you might remember the Department of Homeland Security warning in the Spring of 2009 that anti-terror police need to be on the lookout for suspicious people with – get this – pro-life bumper stickers and stickers for 3rd party candidates.
Yes, you never know what they might have in their car. Like a baby… Or a Ron Paul pamphlet. Yet Hassan was a known fanatic. They didn’t even have to pull him over and ask for his driver’s license.
Indeed the Army knew about Hassan, just like people around Tucson knew about killer Jared Loughner. And people at Virginia Tech knew about mass killer Cho Seung-Hui. And the Colorado police knew about the two Columbine killers.
This is the New America, however, where massive pain and suffering is inflicted on countless numbers of people because Americans under the regime of political correctness are afraid to criticize anyone or “judge” them. Unless you happen to be 76 Christians who are praying at the Mount Carmel compound in Waco, Texas. Then the government kills you and the media cover up for it. Because a Democrat was in the White House.
Hassan was given a free pass because he was an Islamic militant, you know, the people Obama is trying to build bridges to as they try to burn down our nation.
Lieberman noted that some of those who knew Hassan had referred to him as “a ticking time bomb.” But today’s politically correct reaction to a ticking time bomb is to pick it up and try to figure out why it’s ticking.
Yet when a maniac kills 6 people and gravely wounds a congresswoman in Arizona the same leftists who babysit Islamic radicals like Hassan immediately blame the whole thing on Sarah Palin, a mother of five who lives in Alaska.
This is completely outrageous. But this is what the demented left gives us.
Lieberman said: “To me it’s infuriating that a member of our armed services who expressed such radical opinions to other members of our military was not discharged.”
Brilliant, senator. Because people on the government left no longer are even looking out for the interests of the people. Look at Democrat congressman Barney Frank, the chairman of the House banking committee assuring us that Fannie Mae was in fine shape just two months before it collapsed. Another ticking time bomb ignored by the left.
Yet George Bush and John McCain warned about Fannie for years. But Bush and McCain are just Republicans and their opinions do not count in today’s Media Left world. And this is why our nation is in such dire straits – because rational people are marginalized and crazy people like Hassan are coddled.
The Fort Hood report said: “DOD possessed compelling evidence that Hasan embraced views so extreme that it should have disciplined him or discharged him from the military, but DOD failed to take action against him,” the report said.
This Fort Hood outrage is a continuation of the lax treatment that one party – the Democrats – have been giving terrorists for 18 years. After the first February 26, 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center in New York City, the Clinton administration ignored terrorism for 8 years. And 9/11 was the result with Bush handed an empty terrorism briefing book by the Clintonistas for his inauguration present. Many, many red flags were ignored during the Clinton years because terrorism was not considered a front-burner topic by a president too busy chasing an intern around his desk. This is appalling…
After 9/11, Bush made real and rhetorical war on radical Islam and was savaged for every single shot. Obama has since stood down and we have had Fort Hood, the unsuccessful Underwear Bomber, the Islamic killer of Army Pfc. Long in Little Rock, and the attempted car bombing of Times Square which the mayor of New York immediately conjectured was the work of some Tea Partier upset with the health-care bill.
This is precisely the kind of wacky thinking that allows Hassan-like characters to flourish – an unwillingness of the Democrat Left in America to ascribe any guilt to any protected group – in this case Islamists – known for overt acts of violence, while Tea Partiers are accused of racism and violence with no evidence whatsoever. Or praying Christians are wiped out with hardly a word of explanation.
