Call for calm after US military base killings (Obama says don't jump to conclusions...)
Financial Times ^ | 6 Nov 09 | Sheila McNulty and Harvey Morris

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 US’s 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 don’t know all the answers yet, and I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts.”

“We don’t have all the facts” means “We haven’t decided what the best way to spin this is yet.”

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”.

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??

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."

The anointed one votes ‘present’, yet again...

We have the facts we need. Just heard LtCol Peters on BOR, calling it like it is. This is the most horrendous act of islamic terrorism on American soil since 9/11, and he’s “about to puke” at all the PC crap that is spewing from the libtards and pundits.

And don’t jump to conclusions about the shooter attending a Homeland Security conference in January for the Obama Transition Team and sitting in row 2 as shown on this film

and listed on this report from Homeland Security, page 32

Can’t do that. Muslims aren’t supposed to drink alcohol. Obama will have to serve multi-culti fruit juice or serve dates.

Well, with the poor, traumatized, not-a-Jihadi Nidal hospitalized in a coma, I'm sure it's known whether or not he'd ritually prepared himself by shaving his body.

But, this is a fact we don't have.

Which reminds me...didn't they arrest or have two other suspects besides Hasan? Why haven't we heard anything about accomplices? Might it cause conclusion jumping????

Of course Baraq Hussein 0bama doesn’t want you to jump to conclusions just because Hasan denounced US foreign policy and shouted “Allahu Akbar!”

Hell 0bama does that daily.

If my wife or daughter had been murdered by this terrorist I’d have a hard time dealing with the words coming out of Obama’s lying mouth.

This is victimizing the victims. By ignoring their suffering, and focusing on the murdering terrorist’s potential “issues”, etc. Obama’s asking the nation to give the murdering terrorist our sympathy and the benefit of doubt.

I can’t take it anymore.

Does anyone know anything about this Lt. Col Ralph Peters? I’ve never seen him before, but based on his performance on the Factor, I do think I would be willing to vote for him for some type of political office.

We need to stop allowing Muslims to immigrate to our nation and keep them out of the military. These American terrorist and their sympathizers(which there are far more than anyone wants to believe) need to start getting a taste of their own medicine.
