Incredibly, it appears that Maj. Malik Nidal Hasan, the alleged shooter in the massacre that resulted in at least 12 dead and 31 wounded at Fort Hood today, served on the Homeland Security Policy Institutes presidential transition task force between April 2008 and January 2009 when Barack Obama was inaugurated as the nations 44th president.
Major Hasans name appears on the page numbered 29 (page 32 of the pdf) of the document, Thinking Anew Security Priorities for the Next Administration.
Founded in 2003, The George Washington University Homeland Security Policy Institute (HSPI) is, according to the About Us page on its web site, a nonpartisan think and do tank whose mission is to build bridges between theory and practice to advance homeland security through an interdisciplinary approach.
What does it mean? Perhaps, nothing.
FOX News anchor Shepherd Smith today interviewed one of Hasans former Ft. Hood colleagues, Col. Terry Lee, who is now retired. Col. Lee said Hasan thought Obamas election would bring a quick end to U.S. deployments in the Mideast. When it didn’t (end) he (Hasan) became more frustrated with the situation, said Col. Lee.
Did the results of the Tuesday night elections favoring Republicans push Maj. Hasan over the edge?
I bet the pucker factor at the US Secret Service just jumped by an order of magnitude.
That must have been a different Major Hasan. /sarc>
mmm mmm mmm
Col. Lee also says that he personally talked to Hasan and that Hasan said that the Iranians have a right and should stand up against “the agressors”. Why nothing was done about this is unbelievable.
The fact that such a sick SOB could have been within arms distance of the POTUS scares me. Don’t they background these people!??!?!??!
Well, there’s only one thing to do: reverse the results of those elections.
The spin is that Obama will blame George Bush for driving this guy to go crazy! Hasan is a George Bush victim
I’m telling you, and I know this sounds crazy, but it’s just too coincidental that this happened on the day 100,000 people showed up to protest and take DC by storm over the precious health care bill.
Obama and his thug meister Rahm are not above making a phone call so as to get people’s minds off of his health care bill going down the toilet! To them nothing is more important than Obama’s image and passing this bill of tyranny...and of course he got to make such a graceful (snort) statement of support for the families on live tv.
Except of course that Obama just quite couldn’t infuse any pathos in his gracious (snort) speech after first getting in his me, me, me, me, good, me, good statements to the native Americans at the conference.
I'm guessing the jihadi's promotion was the result of strings pulled by higher-ups, and the FBI not opening a case to look into his internet posts praising the fragging of US soldiers by that other jihadi, comparing suicide bombers to soldiers jumping on a grenade to save others, etc. was also the result "discouragement" from higher-ups.
I meant “iraqis” not “iranians”.
This is getting even weirder.
I wonder if he and Barack belong to the same terror cell? //sarcasm
someone from Fox interviews Hasans neighbor who said that Hasan had “Allah” on his door. Whether it was written or a sign isn’t clear.
there should be no further question that BO is a muslim.

He pals around with Ayers. It’s nothing new.
