It’s official: Fort Hood killer a terrorist on Obama’s watch

Well it’s official – the killer that shot dead 13 people and seriously injured another 29 at Fort Hood this past week is a terrorist.  Major Nidal Malik Hasan attended the same mosque as two of the 9/11 conspirators.  Clearly he was a radical Muslim and angry with the United States and willing and able to undertake murderous actions against the United States government and civilians.  That makes him a terrorist.

So terrorism has arrived, once again, in the United States and Barack Obama wasn’t all that concerned about it.  At least not so concerned as to interrupt a shout-out to his buddies at the Native American conference.

What is interesting to me is that the MSM has been reluctant to call Hasan a terrorist.  Instead he has been portrayed as someone that was troubled by the stories of soldiers returning from war.  The Boston Globe even wrote a story of how difficult his job was given the strain of war. The Globe goes so far as to blame the problem on everyone but Hasan:

Investigators are still trying to determine Hasan’s motives, exploring everything from job pressures to harassment as a Muslim to his strong opposition to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In other words – it’s not Hasan that was the trouble – it was the United States!  Where have we heard that treasonous rubbish before?  Oh yeah, our President.

Luckily men like Sen Joe Liebermann are asking the right questions such as “Was this homegrown terrorism?”.  I think it is homegrown terrorism and Obama now has the biggest problem of all on his hands – the war is in his yard.  Others are at least considering that the MSM was too quick to blame the US and not Hasan.

Completely ignoring his Islamic ideology and Palestinian Arab background, the media speculated that he might have been suffering from Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, even though he had never served in a combat zone, that he was angry over being deployed to Iraq, even though he had a history of pro-terrorist postings predating that, and finally that he had been bullied by other soldiers for being a Muslim, a claim that has since emerged as completely baseless.  All of these however were ways of shifting the blame from Nidal Hassan and his Islamist ideology, and onto his victims, the men and women he had tried to kill, and the United States Army itself. Once again the media apparatchiks had decided that blame for a Muslim killing spree rested not with the perpetrator, but with his targets.

We have been lucky in that our war on terrorism has been fought overseas, but now it has arrived on our turf and Obama was in charge when it happened.  I wonder if this will be enough to get Obama to finally take terrorism seriously and start making decisions about Afghanistan and Iraq.  Or will he continue to kick the bucket down the road and spend his time throwing money into the hands of lobbyists that are making the decisions in Washington over our health care.

Know this – Obama has no plans of acting as a legitimate Commander in Chief.  Obama doesn’t care if the US is wiped off the face of the planet.  Obama is a traitor to the nation and to the Constitution.  But he does care about money.  He cares so deeply about money that he is willing to spend his, mine, yours and all the money of the next four generations in this country to pad the nests of his lazy, shiftless hackorama.  Obama will prove me right and fail to address any significant international issue in his term as President.  Hell, he won’t even make a plan to get a bunch of dirty goat f*ckers out of GITMO.

The war is here and Obama doesn’t care.

  • Ever since there was widespread suspicion of all things Islam after 9/11, there has been a concerted effort to avoid the subject when any violent act gets widespread press.  In the days and weeks following 9/11 random people were targeted for no other reason than their religion or skin tone.  even GW was making attempts to tone down the rhetoric and with good reason. MSM media makes every attempt to leave the question of religious back ground out of the question with Muslims unless it is unavoidable (it may prove to unavoidable in this case).  Would they do the same with any other religion…nope.

    There are over 1 Billion Muslims world wide, and the vast majority ever them would never think to commit such a horrible act.  But there is undeniably some very small minority that will.  I tend to look at them the same way the KKK relates to Christians.  The KKK is primarily white, southern christian males who subscribe to a radical set of racial beliefs and often resort to violence and hate to further those beliefs.  But it is completely inaccurate to view Christians with that same prism (even though some do).

    But look at the KKK in this country.  There is no denying they exist and the government can do little to stop them from just existing because of our system of government.  But they are watched, monitored, regulated, even ostracized by most and have little impact in most folks’ lives.  Radical Islam exists in countries where there is little government, and what government there is usually is tied directly to the religion itself.  So there is little they can do directly to stop it.  Could outsiders who subscribe to those views get in?  Absolutely.  Can they attract some small number of nutballs who have a grievance against the country…sure.  But I doubt you’ll see any massive attack from within.  It would have to be orchestrated over a period of years by outsiders like 9/11 was….these nuts look long term….if they have to wait another 5-10 years that’s just fine.  I was amazed that people were shocked that 9/11 could ever happen.  Attacks of this kind have been going on since Carter was in office….it just never happened in our backyard.

    Mark my words….it’s already started to happen.  It will all come down to “What could the army have done to stop this?”.

    I hold this nut and radical beliefs he was drawn to for this disaster.  I don’t think Obama or anyone else could have stopped it, but I don’t want Obama to be dismissive of the fact that this can and did occur and this man’s religious views were a factor in his actions leading up to his rampage.

    I personally took offense when I heard in real time Obama’s shout out immediately after this tragedy.  It could have been handled much better.  But Obama is typical of the left and foreign policy….try reasoning with the men with guns and bombs.  He’ll make a decision on troops when he has no other choice, but a not a moment before.  There will reach a tipping point when enough generals say it loud enough and that point is coming quickly.  And there will debate, condemnation, and agreement all at the same time from differing points of view.  This is shaping up to be what VietNam was to LBJ.  But as John McCain said, we didn’t lose the war in VietNam, we lost it at home and in the press.

  • I’m hearing more and more MSM commentators report that the shooter gave a ton of red flags and the army was trying to be politically correct by not reporting it.

    There are allegedly posts on radical Islam cites placed by this person, and even one report that he attempted to contact Al Queda.  He attended a moque in VA when the same radical Imman who counseled two of the 9/11 terrorists was the spiritual guide.  That Imman is a Yemeni who is now back in Yemem and has words of praise for the shooter.

    There may be no solid connections to any organized act at the behest of outsiders, but it becoming clear the shooter for reasons we don’t understand was drawn to more radical elements leading up to his attack.

    I was please to see that CAIR for the first time came out immediately condemning the attack, as did the mosque in VA.  This is the first time this happened as far as I know, and I see it as a tiny bright spot.  They usually sit back and say nothing or offer excuses when something like this happens.
