The Plot Thickens

It seems like we’re learning more and more about Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan with every passing moment. For a part-timer like myself, it’s difficult to reconcile everything as it comes out. Thankfully, there are people like Pamela Geller, who penned a fantastic commentary for Andrew Breitbart’s BigGovernment blog. Here’s an excerpt:

Obama doesn’t want us to jump to the conclusion that the shootings at Fort Hood were a terrorist attack by an Islamic jihadist, Major Nidal Hasan. Obama would rather we forgot that Nidal Hasan screamed “Allah akbar” before he mowed down scores of patriotic Americans and gave away Qurans with his business card before his act of jihad. Hasan also gave his landlord two week’s notice – showing that he planned this for a long time. He didn’t just snap.

Obama wants us to ignore that Hasan went to a mosque where a jihadist imam preached hatred of America. The same imam was “spiritual adviser” for three of the 9/11 hijackers who attacked America on Sept 11, 2001. Obama would rather we didn’t know that when Hasan was asked his nationality, he didn’t identify himself as an American, but as a Palestinian. Obama doesn’t want us to rush to judgment about how Hasan spoke approvingly of the shooting death by an Islamic jihad terrorist of a Little Rock Army recruiter in June. Obama doesn’t us to draw any conclusions from how Hasan reportedly was heard saying, “maybe people should strap bombs on themselves and go to Times Square.”

But Obama says, don’t rush to judgment.

The President was not so circumspect when he spoke out about Professor Henry Louis Gates’ arrest by Cambridge, Massachusetts police Sgt. James Crowley. Obama incited hatred on national television, rushing to judgment against a white cop who was just doing his job. Obama tried to incite racial division and wrongly criticized the police during a news conference: “But I think it’s fair to say, No. 1, any of us would be pretty angry; No. 2, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and, No. 3 … that there’s a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.” The incident, Obama said, showed “how race remains a factor in this society.”

A few days later, after an avalanche of criticism, Obama backtracked: “In my choice of words,” he said, “I unfortunately, I think, gave an impression that I was maligning the Cambridge Police Department or Crowley specifically.” But he did not apologize for his rush to judgment.

Apparently jumping to conclusions is wrong only when it leads to the conclusion that there has been another Islamic terror attack on American soil.

Of course, when it comes to information on radical Islam and Jihad From Within right here in the United States, there are two Web resources which I turn to every single time: Geller’s Atlas Shrugs and Robert Spencer’s JihadWatch. For the sake of ensuring that we all know as much as possible about Maj. Hasan and others like him–not to mention the effect that rampant, reckless political correctness had in bringing this attack about–here are a number of headlines from those two sites:

    Can this deadly Ft. Hood shooting be the attack that was predicted by non other than "JOE" the Biden??

    Will further investigation find that presidential policies (soft ones) put in effect behind the scenes will place OBAMA in a position of commentary (lies) that will further erode his leadership?

    Some one dropped that ball and many innocent warriors payed for it.

    I am retired military, "Patriotic" but have major doubts about our top leadership for the troops in the field.

    Maybe Obamama should have given this same advice to his FBI. Before 7PM EST that night,less than 4 hours after this terrorist attack, a spokesperson for the FBI told Fox News that this WAS NOT a terrorist attack. And he knew this so quickly how, oh that's right, he was told this by the WH, I'm sure. So I guess if you go into a bank and do a holdup, you are not a bankrobber because you did it alone.
    Also, if I hear one more report that he was suffering from post trumatic syndrome, I will scream. Post means just that, after the fact. He never had been to the middle east.

    There was always a lot more to this incident than was being reported. If the guy did not want to go to Iraq why not just do a runner?

    Isn't this the first "terrorist attack" on U.S. soil since 9/11? We have stoppped plots, but none have come to fruition. A caller on "The Rush Limbaugh Show" today pointed that out.

    This seems like they are trying to apply makeup to a black eye.

    I wonder, if that "soldier of Allah" is properly interrogated, he might suddenly start talking a lot, naming people who should not be named. That's why he will not be given an opportunity to open his maw: I fully expect either a hospital death from "sudden complications" or a gag order, a dog-and-pony civil court show followed by a quick needle.

  9. Yophat says:

    Yeah…no weapons training and the guy manages to shoot two weapons and kill that many people (head shots no less) in how long?

    Wake up!

  10. Gail B says:

    Oh, Obama/Soetoro cannot have a "terrorist attack" on American soil during his regime's term! This would lead the right wingnuts to believe that we are not as safe as "W" kept us after 9/11 and that the Democrats do not know what they're doing!

    verify: chiewad (chief wad = poop!)

  11. Lilly says:

    He's already has a lawyer and not talking anymore. They should waterboard him!

  12. John Feeny says:

    What is it going to take? I mean…we're living in the twighlight zone. Could writers even make this up?

  13. Claudia says:

    Just heard on the news that…well, there has been a decision about who has jurisdiction and the MILITARY won out. He will have a Military trial, thank GOD, and that it will most likely be pretty quick compared to a civilian trial, and the penalties will not be long-drawn out as in appeal after appeal. He will not get the same benefits as the Miranda act and several other things, also. And his Attorney will most likely be dismissed and he will be appointed a JAG attorney, which might go really hard on him. His penalties will be more stringent also.

    This is actually the second terrorist attack on U S soil since the Messiah sat on his throne. Do not forget the terrorist attack in Arkansas at the recruiting office. It will continue until Obamama calls it what it is, a muslim jihard attack, an act of war. We are going back to the 9/10 mentality which is very scary.

    as in Cochran…..

    Don't rush to judgment as in "I don't have all the facts but…" ala Gates style?

    Just checkin'.

    Just did a search on "military death sentence" and found something rather interesting.

    The president can commute a death sentence in both civilian and military courts; but in the military court, the president has to SIGN THE ORDER TO EXECUTE.

    I think that the reason the military probably will not seek the death penalty against Maj. Hasan is due to Obama/Soetoro's Muslim faith. He probably would not approve the death of a fellow Muslim.

    Duke University law professor Scott Silliman said this about it, "That’s a political act. The president of the United States personally approving a death penalty is a political act."
