Obama: "We cannot fully know" motive of Ft. Hood shooter; in address on killings, president....
Washington Examiner ^ | November 7, 2009 | Byron York

Posted on 11/07/2009 5:27:53 AM PST by gusopol3

President Obama says "we cannot fully know" what led Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan to kill 13 people and wound 38 others at Fort Hood, Texas Thursday.

Hasan reportedly shouted "Allahu Akbar!" before the killings, wrote Internet postings justifying Muslim suicide bombings, considered U.S. forces the enemy, and opposed American involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan as wars on Islam. His rampage at Ft. Hood has the markings of an act of Islamic terrorism.

But in his weekly address, Obama says, "We cannot fully know what leads a man to do such a thing."

Had the shooter yelled ‘God d&&& America’ Obama would have at least said ‘That has a familiar ring.’

We cannot fully know why Obama is deliberately destroying this country, is it due to Communism, Black liberationism, religious beliefs, anger over being in the closet, or damage due to previous drug use?

Well, actually, we have a clearer picture of the Ft Hood killer's motive than we do of Hitler's.

It's called JIHAD!!!

"There just aren't any words..."

Sure there are words. Here's a lot of them, written by some speech writer for the B.O. all nice and tidy, and full of just the right nuance of anger and love. Don't you see it?

I would be surprised if the zero even read them......

“We cannot fully know what leads a man to do such a thing.”

Typical of Obama. He sets an impossible standard (”fully”) and implies that short of that, we cannot make any judgments.

In a secular, practical, make-judgments-in-regular-life sort of way, the facts available today are pretty clear and I’m pretty sure I know enough to be pretty sure why this terrorist did what he did.

It’s sort of like if Roman Polanski showed up for a date with your daughter. Maybe there’s an explanation for his past behavior somewhere that would make a decision to let her go out with him a sensible one. But I wouldn’t make a real life decision on that possibility.

In a different way, we do fully know why he did what he did. He gave himself to Satan.

It wasn't terrorism, that's what Bill Errs did. It was Jihad, pure and simple.

As we have seen in the UK and Europe, the second generation of muzzie immigrants are highly susceptible to be trained in the philosophy of Jihad and Islamic Hegemony and then encouraged to action by the imams.

So the only real question here is: Did this Mad Mo go on jihad primarily from his own understanding of the basic tenets of islam or was he inflamed by repeatedly attending "motivational" talks by one of more imams?

I am so sick of Obama yapping about knowing. He probably knows more than the rest of this in this case; since the shooter is a Muslim and was on his transistion team.

Tell us about that Obama. Of course, without the the lies you spew.

obama you ignorant slut:
It’s (the motive) amazingly clear. This man is a muslim. muslims hate freedom and are incapable of love as love requires a freedom of the heart and mind that are wholly incompatible with a cult founded by a pedophillic war-mongerer.
As a rational adult, I find it amazing how you and your ilk can immediately ascribe motive to the local Denny’s failing to seat a black couple in a timely manner, yet refuse to admit the facts before you in this case. Not amazed at your lack of cognitive ability on the matter mind you, rather amazed at the complete lack of conscience that prevents normal human beings from lying in the face of obvious truth.
I’d like to close my little rant with an ending worthy of the office you hold, but seeing how you are a profane and vile little man who is intent on playing God and ignoring the will of the people (your employers), I’ll say this instead: obama, go F##k yourself...
Signed,
We The People of the United States...

” Obama says, “We cannot fully know what leads a man to do such a thing.”

Yes we know; most intelligent 6th graders know, the word is evil.

Obamas response is the classic thought pattern of liberals.
They don't recognize evil, they just just see different ways of thinking.

That's why you cannot argue with them on certain points.

I read his remarks. He has a good speech writer apparently.

Except for the use of the word “crime” when it should be “Islamic terrorist attack”.

The speech goes on and on and on - and says things that everyone here would agree with.

But that’s just it, it’s only words.

ACTIONS are what count.

By Zero’s Actions we know he loathes the military, and our participation in the War on Terror (having banned that term already) AND our heritage of freedom (having hired and been close friends with people who are openly America hating, terrorist loving, communists). Jones, Dunn, Ayers, Dohrn - just to name 4.

I think we can get a pretty good idea. Do you think that a religion of peace would condone female sexual mutilation? How about cutting another human beings head off. Here is the October report of Jihad attacks for the month of October, 2009: There were 156 attacks in 15 countries, with 909 dead bodies and 2024 injured. (Not to mention the on-going terror attack against the American constitution being performed daily on USA soil by a sympathetic-to-islam US president.)

I'm down for that.

I'm actually elated he's alive. Now transferred to a military hospital, soon to be transferred to Leavenworth. The bad guys in Leavenworth may be criminals, but even they hate traitors. No problem at all to deep-six him in solitary hell for the next 40 years of his miserable life while the Army gets around to trying him. Hanging's too good for him. The lowlife.

That's a great point; even in a criminal legal proceeding the standard is "beyond a reasonable doubt. " So the answer to Obama is "we do know beyond a reasonable doubt."
