Skip to comments.Call for calm after US military base killings (Obama says don't jump to conclusions...)
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.

Barack Hussein Obama
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?
Zero's going to have to start fellating his Telepromptr pretty quick or he'll end up outpacing Biden in the gaffe department.
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.
CALM, I will be in Nov 2012
I fear Obama will bring Hasan and the cop who shot him to the White House for a beer summit or something.
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.
His umemotional speech told me everything I need to know about which side he’s on.
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.
I think its perfectly clear we don’t have to jump to conclusions.
BOR’S FACTOR TONIGHT WAS ONE OF HIS BEST, TRY CATCHING IT’S RERUN LATER. HE ALL BUT ‘ATE THE FACE’OFF THE MSM AND NEWSWEEK IN PARTICULAR, PETERS WAS ALSO GREAT.
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????
It’s ok, Ted Kennedy made the same mistake on the senate floor.)
They were released. Not involved.
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.
Who is Peters?
Yea, OK Mr president.
Call me when your shuttle lands.
Radio talk hosts want to call yesterday’s shootings
“11/5” , likened to “9/11”,
...as in another ‘shot’ against us by the murdering Jihadists.
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 don’t have the facts yet...” means:
We have not found all the UTube files we need to scrub...
What a great gig to have, run around and mop up all these messes happening on this watch. Bring me another damn mop... (sarc off)
Oh...you mean the “BTW, don’t know if you’ve heard” speech?
Thank you.....This will keep me busy for a while. I swear the man was saying everything I was screaming at the TV last night.
