Obama: 'We cannot fully know' motive of Ft. Hood shooter
Washington Examiner ^ | 11/7/09 | Byron York

Posted on 11/07/2009 8:05:16 PM PST by Nachum

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." And while the killings were "heartbreaking" and "despicable" and "devastating," the president says, it is important to remember not only that Hasan's fellow soldiers responded bravely in coming to the aid of the wounded but also that "Americans of every race, faith and station" have served in the U.S. armed forces. "They are Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus and nonbelievers," Obama says. "They reflect the diversity that makes this America."

“”They are Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus and nonbelievers,” Obama says”

And how many of *them* have gone jihad on their fellow soldiers, recently?

[or ever?]

Give it up, Hussein.

The “motive” is obvious to anyone NOT in denial.

It would seem multiple eyewitness reports, the attacker shouted “Allahu Akhbar” before his murderous rampage, would be a pretty big clue...

Just saying.

Why is everyone so avoiding the obvious?

Allah and their hope in an eternal orgy is their motive. That has been and always will be their motive and yes we can know it.

I have seen I don’t know how many movies that have the line “Allahu Akhbar” when the Muslim terrorist do their jihad deeds.

I know his motive.

But we can instinctively know the motives of white cops when they arrest black dilettantes with zero information.

"The Cambridge police acted stupidly."

This is Obama's attempt to signal the press that they had better bury this story with a minimum of investigation.

It is remarkably similar to the statement of Bill Clinton after the killing of Vince Foster, when he coldly and pointedly warned the media, "We will never know the reasons for this," and sure enough, we never heard one more word about it from that day ever after, at least not from the whorehouse media.

I’m just trying to imagine the reaction had a US soldier of Germanic descent shouted “Heil Hitler!” before unloading a couple of pistols at a crowd of unarmed GIs during WWII.

I don’t think there would be a lot of debate as to his motive.

I hope Fort Hood gives this jackass aka president the welcome he so deserves by turning their backs on him! We will never know the truth about the kind of reception he gets because the media have no credibility!

Yes, his shouts of “Allah Ackbar” didn’t really mean anything.

Obama: 'We cannot fully know' motive of Ft. Hood shooter; in address on killings, president celebrates diversity of armed forces

Good one. The motive is equally obvious.

We ALSO can’t fully know the motives of OMOSLEM.

But it’s something in the ballpark of “DIRTY MOSLEM TRAITOR INSTALLED BY GEORGE SOROS TO DESTROY THE U.S.A. AND TRANSFORM IT INTO A COMMUNIST DISTOPIA.”

A terrorist is a terrorist regardless of his motive. If the FBI classified Theodore Kaczynski as a terrorist, then this nut is a terrorist.

According to an email I just received: The FBI had info on Nidal Hasan, the killer at Fort Hood. He was on Obama’s Homeland Security transition team. The group which prompted Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to call white and conservative groups, including ex-military, dangerous.
He is on page 29 in Obamas report (page 32 including the cover pages)

Thank you for that link. I have just put it up on my website (nachumlist.com)

I believe that the FBI and CIA both had information on this murderer. The issue is if the Obama administration knew and suppressed it. That is the smoking gun we are looking for. If it can be tied to the administration though specific evidence, it may gain traction against their agenda. The next issue would be is if there is evidence, is how far up the food chain does it go....

If you come across any more concrete evidence like this, please let me know.
