WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal law enforcement officials say the suspected Fort Hood, Texas, shooter had come to their attention at least six months ago because of Internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other threats. The officials say the postings appeared to have been made by Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who was killed during the shooting incident that left least 11 others dead and 31 wounded. The officials say they are still trying to confirm that he was the author. They say an official investigation was not opened.

There are dead soldiers in TX tonight because supervisors of this militant Muslim did not do his/her job. They should be court-martialed for not protecting the troops under their command.

More Information on Fort Hood Shooting Suspect

Posted: Nov 05, 2009 6:07 PM CST
Updated: Nov 05, 2009 7:26 PM CST

Military officials say the suspected shooter at Fort Hood was a psychiatrist at Walter Reed Army Medical Center for six years before being transferred to the Texas base in July.

The officials had access to Maj. Malik Nadal Hasan's military record. They said he received a poor performance evaluation while at Walter Reed.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because military records are confidential.

Federal law enforcement officials say the Hasan came to their attention at least six months ago because of Internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other threats.

The Virginia-born soldier was single with no children. He was 39 years old.

He is a graduate of Virginia Tech University, where he was a member of the ROTC and earned a bachelor's degree in biochemistry in 1997. He received his medical degree from the military's Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Md., in 2001. At Walter Reed, he did his internship, residency and a fellowship.

HASAN , Malik Awadallah, 52, passed away Thursday, April 16, 1998, at his home in Vinton. He was born in Palestine on August 7, 1946, and emigrated to the United States at age 16, spending most of his life in Virginia. He moved to Roanoke in 1985 and began a successful business career. He is best remembered for his cheerfulness, honesty and kindness toward everyone. He owned the infamous Capitol Restaurant on the market for many years.

He is survived by his wife, Hanan; three sons, Nidal , Anas and Eyad; a sister; four brothers; 33 nieces and nephews; 37 great-nieces and great-nephews, and scores of extended family.

Interesting. How many internet postings can you make threatening harm to the POTUS before the Secret Service is at your door? About one.

But if you are a Muslim, or the feds think you may be based on your surname, they won’t do anything, because they don’t want to be called “profilers”.

Especially with the #1 Muslim now in the White House.

Wonder if word has gone from the top down through all the ranks that NO PROFILING of Muslims will be allowed anywhere in the US Military ....no matter what “clues” they are giving about potential to harm others in this country,

Not saying that has occurred since Jan 20 2009 - just wonderin...

the leftist spin: “HE WAS A GOOD AMERICAN...HE HAD BEEN HARRASSED”

Doesn’t matter. With an incident of this magnitude, no amount of leftist spin can conceal the fact that an America-hating muslim was protected by military PC, was known to be hostile to USA overseas deployments, expressed support for suicide bombings etc, went on a rampage and shot 42 people, killing 11.

The elites may and try to keep a lid on this, but like the Wall Street Bombing of 1920, the popular reaction will force change. In that case is was the end of immigration of anarchists and communists. In this case I think the PC army will go, the cost of the PC/Ostrich strategy has been too great.

Actually, Nepalitano was far more dedicated to watching those RIGHT WINGERS returning from the War, not Muslims threatening American Soldiers who are fighting the War.

She should be run out of office for wasting her agencies time and resources while this murderous viper simply waited for his time to kill.
