As he headed to the Fort Hood Readiness Center he had a 9mm sidearm and a semiautomatic pistol concealed under his jubba. As a medical doctor and a psychiatrist, Major Hasan would be the last person anyone in a civilian or military security detail would suspect of being heavily armed as he entered the base, or when he entered the Readiness Center where troops heading to, or returning from Iraq and/or Afghanistan, were being processed.
Hasan, a Virginian-born Palestinian whose parents entered the country with Jordanian credentials before he was born, was considered to be one of "the good guys" who counseled troubled soldiers who couldn't erase the horrors of war from their minds once they return home. Hasan's cousin, Nadar Hasan, described his cousin as "...a good American who never got into trouble, but who did not support the war in Iraq or Afghanistan."
Even before the dust settled on Fort Hood and the last echoes of automatic weapon fire died in the afternoon air, the Resident in Washington, who now admits to being raised as a Muslim, ordered the military not to hastily jump to conclusions about the reasons Maj. Hasan may have "snapped."
And even before the nation learned that the CIA had been quietly investigating a Muslim named Nidal Hasan who had been trying to establish contact with al Qaeda in order to learn how to make, and arm, a suicide bomb, the White House was releasing its own spin that Hasan, like many therapists who are deployed to war zones or who work closely with military personnel suffering from combat stress disorders actually become victims of stress disorders themselves. The medical profession acknowledges that stress disorder transfer is a real malady. It may be the case. But, in Hasan's case, what we have is a man torn between the customs and belief of radical Islam and he life and customs of the American society with his religious beliefs overwhelming the moral values of a modern society.
The consensus of Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs is that Maj. Hasan was the victim of combat stress disorderwhich is a stretch and a half since he's never been in combat and, as a physician, would not expect to be. That's almost like suggesting that preparing troops for combat by making them watch Apocalypse Now! and The Longest Day can give them combat stress syndrome. But, I guess the guys who control the press can say anything they want and the rest of us are supposed to believe them because they work for the Kazzaab.
Dr. Hasan is an osteopathic physician and a board certified psychiatrist. Under the Geneva Convention, doctors are not armed and they do not engage the enemy. That's not to say they don't experience the traumas of war first hand by having an ambulance they are riding in get blown up by an IUD or a rocket, or that they might be killed by automatic rifle fire. But according to information that is slowly leaking out in spite of the Obama White House, that was not Hasan's problem. Hasan was not opposed to going to war out of fear of dying. Hasan was opposed to going to war because he was opposed to helping those who were killing Muslims.
Hasan, the FBI determined, has been in contact with domestic radical Islamic extremists long before the death of his mother when he regularly attended services at the radical anti-American Dar al Hijrah Islamic Center mosque in Falls Church, Virginia where two of the 9-11 hijackers worshipped just before that fateful day.
Hasan's problem was not worrying about his own death, unless he died helping American infidels kill Islamic soldiers since, under those circumstances, he could never go to heaven. Hasan's problem, and what troubled him most listening to soldiers discuss war-related stress was in listening to them describe how they killed his Islamic "brethren." Hasan viewed listening to these tales of death and destruction, and assisting these men through their trauma, as a crime against Islam.
When the FBI first put together the fact that that Dr. Hasan was really Palestinian and not a Jordanian, the Obama White House insisted on maintaining that the family was Jordanian because Jordan is an ally. Even though the military knew from the day Hasan joined the Army that he was a Muslim, the Pentagon, on orders from higher authority, issued the statement that Hasan was a "recent convert" to Islam. And White House PR-pisser Robert Gibbs spun the mist into something that smelled as ugly as cat spray since we all knew, or suspected, the spin was a lie.
There were several reasons for the White House to engage in a "little white" Kazzaab. Other than having some members of the media raise the question of how a medical doctor who was a known Islamic extremist, who was being watched by the FBI, was allowed to walk around a military installation armed to to the 9's without anyone knowing it.
A "little white" Kazzaab might be needed when it was learned that Hasan played an advisory role on the Obama transition team as Obama assumed control of the White House. Or, another "little white" Kazzaab might be needed to explain how an Islamic extremist who was trying to make himself into a human bomb to kill military personnel in an American military installation in the United States was not checked out better by the FBI or the Secret Service before being invited to join the Homeland Security Policy Institute's transitional task force.
This one shouldn't have been as hard to crack as learning the identity of super spy Robert Phillip Hassen who was caught only because another convicted spy Earl Edwin Pitts rolled over on him.
In Hasan's case, the CIA had been reading his emails for six months. The CIA is still not talking about Hasan because, they said, they are under orders not to. On Nov. 5 the FBI said there was no official investigation of Hasan under way. So although the CIA knew a Major in the United States Army, ready for deployment to a Muslim country, had been attempting to contact al Qaeda to learn how to make a suicide bomb, there was no investigation underway. Even though both the CIA and the FBI are part of Homeland Security, I guess the CIA is still not allowed to talk to the FBI. What was the point of creating the biggest boondoggle agency in the history of stupidity if those agencies, now all part of Snow White's dwarf village, still can't talk to one another?
And, on November 6 when Dar al Hijrah Islamic Center mosque leader Anwar al Awltraki posted a blog saying that "Nidal Hasan Did the Right Thing," and called him a "hero" and that he was a ",man of conscience who could not bear living the contradiction of being a Muslim an serving in an Army that is fighting against his own people..." the CIA did not see any reason, at that point, to open an investigation. Not of the killing of 13 people and the wounding of 28 others
Congressman Peter Hoekstra sent a document preservation request to the four intelligence agencies who had knowledge of Hasan's past connection with radical Islamic extremists and his current attempt to contact al Qaeda, as well as his desire to become a martyr to Islam. Hoekstra's request is a congressional demand that the agencies involved: the FBI, the CIA, the NSA and the DNI do not destroy those documents. Hoestra also demanded an intelligence briefing from the agencies and from Janet Napolitano, head of Homeland Security.
The agencies refused the House Intelligence Committee's request for a briefing. When Hoekstra notified the media, ABC contacted CIA spokesman Paul Gimigliano who noted "...this is a law enforcement investigation in which other agencieson the CIAhave the lead. Any suggestion that the CIA refused to brief Congress is incorrect." That must be why so much information about Hasan from the spy agency has been forthcoming.
Sen. Joe Lieberman [I-CT, chairman of the Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committee said his committee will hold hearing on the Hasan matter and he said, he intends to get to the bottom of the matter. "I want to say very quickly that we don't know enough to say now, but there are very, very strong warning signs that Dr. Hasan has become an Islamic extremist and, therefore, this is a terrorist act." Hasan, he noted, was a Palestinian Muslim born in the United States. Lieberman noted that he reportedly voiced dismay over US wars in Islamic countries and said the nation's struggle against terrorist threats was a "...war on Muslims." He was distraught that he was about to be deployed.
Emails on his computer indicate he planned to to kill as many Army personnel as possible in an jihadic act, comparing what he planned to do with a soldier falling on a hand grenade to save his comrades. In one of his final notes, he said: "If one suicide bomber can kill 100 enemy soldiers because they were caught off guard, that would be considered a strategic victory."
Caught off guard and slaughtered by Hasan were Lt. Col. Juanita L. Warman, 55; Maj. Libardo Caravee, 52; Capt. John R. Gaffaney, 54; Capt. Russell Seager, 41; Staff Sgt. Justin DeCrow, 32; Sgt. Amy Krueger, 29; Spc. Kham Xiong, 23; Spc. Jason Hunt, 22; Spc. Frederick Green, 29; Pfc. Aaron Thomas Memlka, 19; Pfc. Michael Pearson, 22; Pvt. Francheska Valdez, 21 and one civilian employee at Fort Hood, Michael Cahill, 62. Valdez was pregnant and expecting her first child.
But, when you listen to the the Kazzaab in the White House, the Resident will continue to lie about what constitutes terrorism. He should know. Homeland Security completed their own study on the matter. Terrorists are white Christian conservative males and military-trained conservative soldiers and Marines. Everything else is a little white Kazzaab. So, for whaever it's worth, once again, you have my two cents on this matter.
