Nidal Malik Hasan, Suspected Fort Hood Shooter, Was Called "Camel Jockey"
ABC News ^ | 11/6/2009 | Brian Ross

Posted on 11/06/2009 8:12:02 AM PST by Saije

Fort Hood shooting suspect, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, wanted out of the Army after being constantly harassed by others in the military and was called a "camel jockey," his family said.

As Hasan was about to be deployed to Iraq, he was suffering from some of the same stresses that he was trained as an Army psychiatrist to treat.

Although the 39-year-old had just been promoted to major in May, his family says he had hired a lawyer to help him get out of the Armed Forces.

"Apparently became very disgruntled in the mission in Iraq and Afghanistan and voiced that to a lot of his colleagues," said Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX).

He also voiced it to the world in an Internet posting, where he compared suicide bombers to GI's who save their colleagues by throwing themselves on a grenade.

"Just keep in mind mass killers pretty much know they want to die and they tend to take as many people with them as they can in a shooting," said former FBI agent and ABC News consultant Brad Garrett, who also believes Hasan didn't want to survive the Ft. Hood shooting.

"It is one of those things where he went and wanted to kill a lot of people and commit suicide maybe in his own mind that he's saving peoples' lives," said Garrett. "As illogical as that sounds, in his mind, that would be quite logical."

Hasan is an American citizen of Palestinian descent and after the 9/11 attacks, his cousin says he was the target of constant harassment from others in the military. His tormentors called him a "camel jockey," said his cousin, Nader Hasan. He wanted out of the Army, so he paid back his military student loans and hired an attorney.

This guy was an officer and a doctor. Is it really all that likely that enlisted men were openly harassing him? And if fellow officers were doing it, wouldn't that have given him what he needed to get out of the military? I wonder if he reported any of this abuse. The military should have a record of it.

“Camel Jockey” is not abuse.

What an absolute ball-less wonder this idiot must be if he can’t give as good as he gets. Where’s the lost art of witty retort? The self-pitying common to these terrorists is vile and the source of their problems.

"He wants someone who prays everyday, who adheres to the Quran, who is a good muslim woman."

Translation, he wants a woman that will clean his house, give him sex, have his kids, raise his kids and not talk back to him.

I’ve posted this elsewhere...but fits here too...

those military colleagues make fun of each other for being from BROOKLYN, or NEBRASKA, or THE SOUTH....or EATING CORN BREAD!....

geeshk...if an Major in the Army has a hard time with “words” to the point he needs media to run out and defend his slaughter of fellow soldiers, we have a serious problem!

not to mention that whole story about his car being “keyed.”

I think it was his cousin....claimed his car was “keyed” with the word Alah.....I say he made it up...he wanted people to think he was a victim of hate when it is really him that is filled with hate...

think about it.....if someone wanted to harass this guy for being Muslim, of all things to key on his car, would “Alah” be the word? noooooooooooot buyin it!

I can't believe that anyone is so sensitive that "camel jockey" could bother him.

When I was a kid, ANY difference was fair game. It wasn't that the names were cruel (but they were as cruel as the imagination permitted)...it was a test of whether a person could handle them.

In retrospect, it was a great time to be alive.

But nowadays, we must worry about the mark such teasing might leave on a sensitive little tyke (BARF).

Oh...poor baby.

Of course he was harassed, probably by other officers and maybe enliested men alike (though they would not do so openly because Hasan himself was an officer). But the word would have gotten out. Making the kind of statements he did against the war and for the enemy in the presence of other soldiers who were either going to war or returning from it ensured it...and I do not blame those soldiers one bit.

The blame falls on Hasan himself and those who left him, after the reports came in, in that position. He was a treacherous enemy within the ranks and he ultimately went Jihad.

ANd that’s what it was, Jihad within the ranks, like the case of Sgt. Asan Akbar in 2003.

This Hasan has been a live one for a long time, even suggestiong that more Muslims should attack and kill us after the Arkansas recruiter was killed.

Hopefully he will get the same sentence that Akbar got...and hopefully, unlike Akbar, it will be carried out swiftly.

Maybe they can have a double execution, executed by firing squad with pig-blood soaked bullets, having them fall into a trench of pig entrails before being buried there. It’s what he deserves in his own mind...and it’s time we started playing with their minds, IMHO, just like that. It may save American life if they realize in their own minds that their Jihad will be foiled and they will not got to Heaven for their 72.

His coworker then called and said that it was Hasan who did all the trash talking, and that no one talked like that to a Maj.

The military is death on racially tinged remarks like calling some one in uniform a “Camel Jockey.” The EEO person would have been on that like stink on poot. Promotions, favorable actions, all are in jeopardy from boneheaded comments like Camel Jockey. Knowing that, I find it hard to believe this actually happened and his family is lying to protect this terrorist.

utter and total BS. He went to the Armed Services medical school (UHUHS). There is no tuition, you owe 7 years service. He then did a military psych residency, you owe year for year for that. If you try to break that contract you have to pay 3 times the cost as a penalty ( probably north of a million dollars in his case).

I agree

Given the seriousness with which government and it's contractors take all forms of harassment, there's no way Pentagon brass would have tolerated this. That's a lawsuit that is instantly lost, and the management that turns a blind eye to it, is personally held responsible.
