Army Major Played Role in Presidential Transition
Bob McCarty Writes ^ | 11-5-09 | Bob McCarty

Posted on 11/05/2009 8:41:49 PM PST by BobMcCartyWrites

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 Institute’s presidential transition task force between April 2008 and January 2009 when Barack Obama was inaugurated as the nation’s 44th president.

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 Institute’s presidential transition task force between April 2008 and January 2009 when Barack Obama was inaugurated as the nation’s 44th president.

Major Hasan’s 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.

I would be saving it to my hard drive and copying it to some removable media. Expect a good scrubbing to start very soon.

FOX News anchor Shepherd Smith today interviewed one of Hasan’s former Ft. Hood colleagues, Col. Terry Lee, who is now retired. Col. Lee said Hasan thought Obama’s 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?

There is a copy of the interview by Sheppard Smith at FOX NEWS about Malik Hasan.

My suggestion is for ALL to COPY the interview video and audio located at YouTube BEFORE it is scrubbed.

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.

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.

"Thinking Anew"? Yeah, that sounds like 0 alright.

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.

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.

Could a dispute over his attitude toward the Arkansas shootings have caused heckling by troops at Hood? Then he went postal over it.

The authorities may have been cautious fearing Hasan was trying to provoke them into actions for which he could sue them or at least bring down bad publicity on the Army. With Eric Holder as attorney general anything could happen.

The shooter advises Obama administration on Homeland Security transition. Hmm.

We have a muslim that stands between the military and all classified information. Nothing comes or goes without their knowledge.
We have the same situation at DHS. Muslim knows everything and all operating intel at DHS.
This is obama’s legacy and I have been warning about exactly this from day one.
I told 444Flyer in a mail the other day I was having nightmares and KNEW something major was about to happen. I think the worst is coming. Soon.

Funny how everything that happens surrounding Zero and his thugocracy has the same stench. At the very least, this seems to be odd timing for the meltdown, considering. All of the lamestream media can now legitimately ignore the protests at the WH today for more worthy “news”.

Just heard that Hasan is alive, not dead as previously reported. I guess Zero will be giving him a medal of appeasement soon.

I do think it strange that the base commander was giving press conferences. Every military base has a public affairs officer.

That’s added to the fact that the General gave incorrect information, i.e. Hasan was dead, earlier today. That should never happen, a base commander stating something that was not true. Then his correcting press conference was delayed for hour after hour.

CNN’s White House reporter said the President and senior staff were meeting in the “situation room” as late as 10pm. Why would the President and senior staff be up late meeting in a secure room over a lone nut?

Then you have the coincidence with the rally today. Then you have the coincidence with the perp being part of the Dept. of Homeland Security transition team.

Finally, you have an attack on American heroes transiting from deployments where they are putting their life on the line to protect us. And yet the media, all of whom we know are in the tank for the administration, are taking this angle of trying to make the perp out to be some type of sympathetic figure.

CNN, btw, is live tonight with a “special midnight edition” of Larry King live - Wolf Blitzer hosting.

My great fear is that the muzzie shooter is an authorized actor, in full knowledge of the DHS and WH, and the terror war has moved into another dimension entirely.

Shooter does seem to have a solid Washington DC and Palestinian connection, and a connection to the administration.

Interesting to have this happen on the anniversary date of the Iranian takeover of the US embassy in Tehran.

You realize of course that you will be quoted in Michael Moore's next movie. ;~((

And most certainly paraphrased on the floor of Congress and the White House press room in the next few days.

This shooter got his marching orders, create a diversion, being Muslim he would not question another Muslim, especially one with the highest ranking position in the USA.

This is the Obama team in action folks, this is a little taste of things to come.

Never let a good crisis go to waste.

Must have been other shooters who chickened out.

The operation was muffed. They were not supposed to catch the shooter alive.
