Obama Failed To Connect The Dots On Hasan's Fort Hood Terrorist Attack
More and more information is coming out each day that Fort Hood Shooter Nidal Malik Hasan (pictured above) had ties to terrorism and al-Qaida, and his Radicalized Islamic religious beliefs were noted but intentionally overlooked or, perhaps, not acted upon because the uber-Liberalism of political correctness that is so pervasive in the U.S. Military at the behest and insistence of Liberals.
Of course, this can only mean one thing: Dear Leader His Excellency Barack Hussein Obama, Junior failed to connect the dots.
Obama's CIA and FBI failed to connect the dots.
Obama, being Commander (Coward)-In-Chief, failed to connect the dots. And by failing to connect the dots, Obama expressly allowed a terrorist act that took place on American soil.
From The Times: Hasan 'tried to contact al-Qaeda.':
Evidence of a terrorist link to the Fort Hood massacre mounted yesterday with reports that US intelligence officials knew for months before the shooting that Major Nidal Malik Hasan had been trying to contact figures associated with al-Qaeda.
The gunman named in the deaths of 12 soldiers and a civilian was conscious yesterday and talking to medical staff for the first time since the attack on Thursday last week, as the FBI stepped up investigations into claims that he had maintained links with a radical cleric who once preached to two of the hijackers in the September 11, 2001 attacks.
Major Hasan had attracted the attention of US intelligence agencies several months ago with his efforts to communicate with suspected al-Qaeda leaders by “electronic means”, according to two officials briefed on classified material who spoke to ABC News.
The disclosure was seized upon by senior congressional figures angered by indications that the CIA may have withheld vital information from the army and Congress’s own intelligence and security committees. It followed a demand from Senator Joseph Lieberman for a high-level investigation into what he called “very, very strong signs that Dr Hasan had become an Islamist extremist” — signs that include apparent ties to Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born cleric who moved to Yemen after the September 11, 2001, attacks and who called Major Hasan “a hero” yesterday.
Pete Hoekstra, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said that he was furious that his committee had been denied an intelligence briefing on possible links between Major Hasan and al-Qaeda. He has written to the directors of the FBI, the CIA and the National Security Agency asking them to preserve all relevant documents for congressional review.
The file of apparent missed clues in this case is already thick: besides the apparent connection to Mr al-Awlaki, there is a presentation he gave to fellow combat-stress specialists in Maryland in 2007 in which he reportedly said that his faith trumped the US Constitution, and likened suicide bombers to soldiers willing to throw their bodies over those of their comrades to protect them.
“We were all very concerned about his beliefs and what he was capable of, and I’m not surprised that he did what he did,” Val Finnell, a former colleague, said. Another potential character witness who met Major Hasan when he was caring for her wounded son at the Walter Reed Army Medical Centre in Washington said simply: “I looked into his eyes, and he scared me.”
A fellow Army doctor who studied with Hasan, Val Finell, told ABC News, "He would frequently say he was a Muslim first and an American second. And that came out in just about everything he did at the University."
Finell said he and other Army doctors complained to superiors about Hasan's statements.
"And we questioned how somebody could take an oath of office…be an officer in the military and swear allegiance to the constitution and to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic and have that type of conflict," Finell told ABC News.
Make no mistake about it. Obama is fully and wholly responsible for the bloodshed at Fort Hood. He may as well have pulled the trigger and shot the Soldiers himself. He probably wishes he could have been Hasan.
Carter is going to have a run for his money on the WPE, thats for sure.
Lord have mercy. This is the man who will provide for "free" health care? Imagine muslim terrorrists getting free med-aid in jail, while american conservatives linger in long lines due to rationing. Conservatives and liberals also.
I sick and tired of liberalism.
but because he can't accept the picture that emerges after the dots are conected.
Oh, that is such a salient observation and so accurate. Far better than my take on it. I am blessed with some of the finest commenters in the blogosphere, of than I am completely convinced and grateful.
Beautiful observation, Mats.
