FT. HOOD ATTACK WAS TERRORISM

In his nationally televised remarks following the horrendous killings at Ft. Hood, President Obama never mentioned the T word. The attack was an act “of violence.” No mention of terrorism.
In fact, the Ft. Hood shooting is the first terror attack on American soil since 9-11. But Obama, reluctant to take the rap for inadequate protections against such attacks, is doing everything he can to make it look like an adult version of the Columbine school shootings. We are treated to stories about the killer’s dread of being sent back to Afghanistan and his deformed personality.
But, the fact is that Major Nidal Malik Hasan jumped on a table, yelled “Alah Hu Akhbar” and began the shooting rampage that killed 13 people and wounded 30 more.
Ilana Freedman, CEO and Senior Analyst for the Gerard Group International, which provides intelligence analysis for business and homeland security, describes Hasan as a “lone wolf terrorist” who acts without apparent coordination with any other person or organization. But that does not make him any less of a terrorist.
The dividing line, of course, between a terrorist and a psychopathic killer is political motivation. His statements right before opening fire would indicate that Hasan was motivated by fanaticism and a commitment to Islamic fascism, even though President Obama bends over backwards to avoid saying so.
Obama’s refusal to call the attack terrorism, and to heed the warning signs about the porous nature of our security system that allowed it to happen on a military base, recalls President Clinton’s deliberate decision to downplay the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center. He did not visit the site of the attack and treated it as a crime, promising to find those guilty and punish them, rather than to attack the international groups that funded and enabled them.
There may be no groups behind Major Hasan’s attack, but the fact that he was an officer in the Army, with full access to a military base and its arsenal of weapons, while holding the views he did, is the first indication of a laxity in security under President Obama. This attack did not take place in a shopping mall or a school, where security procedures are, understandably, relaxed. It happened on the highest security place of all – a military base! That the military failed to spot the possibility of an attack and had no measures in place to prevent it must be laid at the feet of the commander-in-chief of that military: President Barack Obama.
Many commentators have warned that the diminution of security and the weakening of our anti-terrorist protections would leave us vulnerable to be hit again. Now it has happened. And the president is doing everything he can to blur the distinction between murder and terrorism.
It was his failure to understand the difference between an act of war and a crime that undermined President Clinton’s administration’s anti-terror efforts and led directly to 9-11. It would appear that President Obama is going down the same road of denial and minimization of political harm. There may be casualties at Ft. Hood, but Obama is determined that his popularity will not be among them.

The latest main stream media fad is to blame the Fort Hood incident on Vicarious Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Not only would someone have to be weak in the mind for that to happen, one would have to be even weaker to believe it.
Hasan was by all rights a muslim fundamentalist whose beliefs contradicted what he was doing in the Army, and it came to a head when he was ordered to go to Afghanistan. His religious beliefs and identity trumped his sworn duty to this country. The honorable thing to do would be to resign.
Instead, Hasan chose to take his anger out on those around him, particularly those that were innocent, and who had nothing to do with decisions about our foreign policy. He is a coward, a liar, and a murderer. He was dishonest to himself and those around him. He is responsible for all of this, BUT Islam was the gasoline poured on this fire. In his mind, Americans were the enemy, not the Taliban.
It is high time muslims in this country and elsewhere to make the decision on where they stand, and furthermore, help us weed out these fundamental psychopaths. In WWII, Japanese, German, and Italian americans felt they had something to prove in fighting the axis powers, and they served their country well (read about the 442nd Infantry Regiment). Such incidents like this did not exist, but then again, even the average american today does not have the patriotism and sense of national identity that my parents generation did.
If anyone is offended by the pictorial here, Tango Sierra. What I have seen of Islam in this world, the quran belongs there.

The latest news is the somewhat less than ersatz muslim terrorist is still alive, but not well. Is it terrorism? Colonel West thinks so. Jihad? Why not? Personally, I think he had more than a bad attitude.
When I heard the news, the first thing that went through my mind was, oh shit, the liberal media is going to have a field day with this shit because they’ll blame it on a gun nut.
Of course, when things look bad, they can get worse. It turns out the guy was a psychiatrist in the Army that was getting deployed to Iraq and wasn’t happy about it and disagreed with the policy of being there in the first place. Ok. A nut job none the less.
Then they disclose his name: Nidal Malik Hasan. Holy dog shit shit Batman, not again. Just when I thought it couldn’t get worse. Of course the liberal media will probably try to paint the situation as a frustrated soldier that didn’t get any help or some other non-sense. Earth to MSM: The loser was a muslim that killed at least 13 people, wounded over 30 people, whose only mistake was being around when Nidal went off. The sad thing is this did not have to happen. Soldiers should be allowed to carry sidearms while on base. I imagine this was not the case at Ft. Hood. If they were, the casualty toll would have been much less. Can you imagine the largest military installation in the world had to call the cops? I also think that the army has to take a second look at muslims in it’s midst. This isn’t the first time a 72 virgins seeker has gone off, and it may not be the last.
I bet this asshole voted for Obama.
