U.S. intelligence agencies were aware months ago that Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan was attempting to make contact with people associated with al Qaeda, two American officials briefed on classified material in the case told ABC News.-- RICHARD ESPOSITO, MATTHEW COLE and BRIAN ROSSThe Army’s slogan used to be, “Be all that you can be.” Then “An Army of One” and Now it is “Army Strong.” Yet if a chain is only as strong as its weakest link then the Army is only as strong as its weakest politically correct policy.
For instance some of Major Nidal Malik Hasan’s peers complained about his anti-American pro-Islam behavior to their superiors. But because of the politically correct mandates found in the high echelons of all branches of military their superiors choice not to offend Islam. A decision which now we know was at the expense of the 13 dead and 30 wounded American soldiers and civilians who were killed or injured in the name of Islam by an Islamic Jihadist as he shouted the Islamic war cry Allahu Akbar on U.S. soil on a U.S. military base.
Oh but the fault doesn’t end with the Military, no it seems our politically correct government also knew that Maj. Hasan was dappling in Islamic Jihadism but it isn’t at all clear whether those that are now in the Obama administration shared that information with the military. (see story(see 8:41min video)
Now I’m not suggesting that Maj. Hasan is not fully responsible for his actions. However those in the government and in the Military must bear the full brunt of their responsibility for making it so easy that an avowed Islamic Jihadist could make his allegiance to Islam above America known while walking around freely as he plotted to his own personal jihad against the Country he swore to defend, the Constitution the swore to uphold and the Military and people he swore to serve, protect and defend.
Must every terrorist attack that happens on American soil be met with pre-9/11 surprise and ignorance like we don’t know that Islamists are still sworn to destroy America? (see 2:16 min. video)
Just because the Barry Hussein Soetoro administration erased the word terrorism from its collective vocabulary doesn’t mean that Islamic Jihadist terrorists have erased their intent of destroying America from their collective actions.
Major Nidal Malik Hasan may have pulled the triggers on two guns while shooting over 43 people, civilians and soldiers, but it was the U.S. Government and the U.S. Army that killed 13 and wound 30 by allowing its ranks to be infiltrated with Muslims, Islamists and Jihadists some secret and apparently some not so secret who are just waiting for their opportunity to claim their 72 virgins as they kill the U.S. infidels while shouting for their last words on earth... Allahu Akbar.
