Posted on 11/06/2009 5:18:53 PM PST by SkyPilot
Barack Obama cautioned a stunned public on Friday against drawing quick conclusions on a shooting rampage by an officer at a Texas military base that killed 13 people.
The president made the comments as the commander of Fort Hood, the USs largest base for deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, quoted witnesses as saying the suspected gunman, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, shouted the Muslim declaration Allahu Akbar God is great as he opened fire. Speaking at the White House, Mr Obama said: We dont know all the answers yet, and I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts.

Like, what conclusions are we not supposed to jump to?
Just like you didn’t jump to conclusions regarding the “white cop” “black professor”?
“We don’t have all the facts” means “We haven’t decided what the best way to spin this is yet.”
islam is a religion peace,don’t know what the President is talking about.
Talks like a terrorist, walks like a terrorist, acts like a terrorist = terrorist
Just because it appears he was acting alone doesn’t mean that he isn’t a terrorist, or that it wasn’t a terror attack.
Why can’t the O just call the attack what it was?
Heard a comment on a local talk radio call-in program saying, in effect, that Obama is the wrong person to be telling the public “not to jump to conclusions” when he was the guy calling the Cambridge cop & police force “stupid”, suggesting that they were racist. Thought that was an interesting take on President “Shoot from the Hip”.
Yep. You refer to Henry Louis Gates Jr.
Like someone died, we haven’t seen the coffins or anything...we just need to chill don’t you see?
Nobody has all the facts on the health care bill, but BO expects Congress to jump to a conclusion by passing it.
So, a muslim with a history of speaking out against America and the WOT goes on a shooting rampage shouting Allah Akbar after giving away his possessions...and we shouldn’t rush to judgement.
But, we need to pass a health care takeover bill that isn’t finished and hasn’t been read because there isn’t time for debate??
Yes, the “Good Professor”.
can we make that ... President “Shoot from the LIP?”
“Never let a crisis” (murdering jihadist) go to waste”. time to RAM their socialist agenda through while the majority of the country is in mourning.
Good thinking, Barry.
Ummm...what facts DON'T we have?
Muslim students stared stonily in class as people talked about the massacre.
I remember distinctly, on the morning of 9/11, when Dan Rather looked into the camera and said, "WE DO NOT KNOW WHO DID THIS."
I turned to my children and said, "He's lying. Obama bin Laden did this, and everyone knows it."
Silly me. Or was it some cosmic freudian slip?
