Hasan Was ‘Mortified’ About Deployment to War (NY Slimes Begins the Whitewash)
New York Times ^ | Nov 5, 2009 | James Dao

Posted on 11/05/2009 6:59:15 PM PST by WeatherGuy

WASHINGTON — Born and reared in Virginia, the son of immigrant parents from a small town near Jerusalem, he joined the Army right out of high school, against his parents’ wishes. The Army, in turn, put him through college and then medical school, where he trained to be a psychiatrist.

But Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the 39-year-old man accused of Thursday’s mass shooting at Fort Hood, Tex., started having second thoughts about his military career a few years ago after other soldiers harassed him for being a Muslim, he told relatives in Virginia.

The Associated Press, quoted federal law enforcement officials saying Major Hasan had come to their attention at least six months ago because of Internet postings that mentioned suicide bombings and other threats.

But Nader Hasan, 40, a lawyer living in Northern Virginia, described his cousin as a respectful, hard-working man who had devoted himself to his parents and his career.

He said his cousin had been a practicing Muslim who had become more devout after the deaths of his parents, in 1998 and 2001. But he said he had not expressed anti-American views or radical ideas.

His cousin is a jihadist pig coward who knew these soldiers were unarmed which is exactly why he chose this place at this time.

So instead of turning his gun on himself, he shoots innocent solders who have nothing to do with his deployment.

Hassan was a LIB who was po’d that he had to ACTUALLY go to war after the Army paid for his medical education and had expected Obozo to quickly end the war.

LIBS are ALWAYS “victims” and the slimes will happily help round out this story!

>> “He was mortified by the idea of having to deploy,” Mr. Hasan said. “He had people telling him on a daily basis the horrors they saw over there.”

Uh huh. So as a consequence of this mortification, he SHOT forty-three people. Right.

I pray the families of the dead victims of this evil slaughter will fire back with harsh words at the NY Times for their blatant attempt at making the shooter/murderer a “victim”.

Granted, the military dropped the ball in dismissing this guy’s disturbed psychosis. Plenty of people heard him make outlandish anti-American comments regarding the war. There should be no place in our military where our soldiers should have to put up with anyone’s anti-war rhetoric.

Well being “mortified” and “harassed” always justifies gunning down at least 40 unarmed innocents. The New Jihad Times is never wrong.

Hey NYTimes COMMIES, here’s what Winston Churchill has to say about the ONLY RELIGION YOU LIKE:

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries!

Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.

The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.

A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.

No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”

— Sir Winston Churchill (The River War, first edition, Vol. II, pages 248-50 [London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1899]).

And that is such BS.

As a former junior EM, NCO and officer...I can assure you that it’s extremely unlikely that a MAJOR(!) was being teased in a petty schoolyard manner.

And, if this person (since the words “officer” and “soldier” would be cheapened if I referred to him that way) couldn’t handle a bit of razzing, then WTF was he doing in uniform?

Proven to be a damn lie! He made the comment about being a Muslim and should stand up against the infidels when the Little Rock, AR shooting happened! Col. Terry Lee worked with him and said that is what he told him.

He also made a comment about Obama pulling troops out and things would settle down.

So how is it that the feds knew about this guy and yet he continued to have clearance to secure locations? Why wasn't he brought up on charges or drummed out of the service? Political correctness run amuck.

“His parents didn’t want him to go into the military,” Mr. Hasan said. “He said, ‘No, I was born and raised here, I’m going to do my duty to the country.’ ”

BS. He got his entire education paid for, including medical school. Then he chose a specialty (psychiatry) where he thought the odds were good he wouldn't be deployed.

The Times is floating a little trial balloon here to see how people react to the classic "oh, he was oppressed" crapola. Here is a guy who owed everything he was professionally to the military and the taxpayer, an MD, a member of society's elite. He wasn't oppressed, he was privileged, and this simpering fool of a reporter is about to find out just how badly that sort of garbage is going to play.

That report has been denied by his coworker tonight, the coworker said the OPPOSITE was true, that it was Hasan who did all trash talking...and because he was a Major, no one would have spoken to him that way...who knows. I sure some lib lawyer will be defending him in no time.

This always wins me friends when I express it, but...

I believe it is utterly impossible to be a devout Muslim and at the same time believe in the rights that the BOR/Constitution grant us; i.e., be a freedom loving American. The Muslim faith is by its very nature “anti-American” and “radical.” Much like admiring our Founding Fathers and Karl Marx at the same...they’re diametrically opposed.

Of COURSE he was MORTIFIED!!! He was a DEVOUT MUSLIM!!!!

Devout Muslims DON'T fight other Muslims for Infidels!!!!

Its in the Koran!!!! Its what they believe. Just like they believe Muslims who convert to another reason have to be killed, people who try to convert Muslims to other religions should be killed, the World is a stage for a continuing war between Muslims and Infidels, Muslims must rule Infidels and convert them, dancing is evil, pictures and images of people are evil, dogs are unclean, pork is unclean, liquor is taboo and women should be treated like property.

WHEN ARE AMERICANS GOING TO WAKE UP????

All we have to do is look at Western Europe. We should get these creatures OUT of here - every last Mothers’ son of them before they kill or convert us all.

He's in the Army, not the Postal service. The closest he'll get to Oprah is the TV in his room, provided he has one. He'll be confined pending the final disposition of this case. You have no "right to bail" under the UCMJ.

Well then maybe the Army was a poor career choice. You see, it turns out that when you join the military, you are sometimes expected to deploy. It's weird how that works!
