Skip to comments.Fort Hood Attack Was Terrorism – By Dick Morris
Posted on 11/09/2009 1:10:10 PM PST by La Enchiladita
In his nationally televised remarks following the horrendous killings at Ft. Hood, President Obama never mentioned the T word. The attack was an act of violence. No mention of terrorism.
In fact, the Ft. Hood shooting is the first terror attack on American soil since 9-11. But Obama, reluctant to take the rap for inadequate protections against such attacks, is doing everything he can to make it look like an adult version of the Columbine school shootings. We are treated to stories about the killers dread of being sent back to Afghanistan and his deformed personality.
But, the fact is that Major Nidal Malik Hasan jumped on a table, yelled Alah Hu Akhbar and began the shooting rampage that killed 13 people and wounded 30 more.
Ilana Freedman, CEO and Senior Analyst for the Gerard Group International, which provides intelligence analysis for business and homeland security, describes Hasan as a lone wolf terrorist who acts without apparent coordination with any other person or organization. But that does not make him any less of a terrorist.
The dividing line, of course, between a terrorist and a psychopathic killer is political motivation. His statements right before opening fire would indicate that Hasan was motivated by fanaticism and a commitment to Islamic fascism, even though President Obama bends over backwards to avoid saying so.

Obamas refusal to call the attack terrorism, and to heed the warning signs about the porous nature of our security system that allowed it to happen on a military base, recalls President Clintons deliberate decision to downplay the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center. He did not visit the site of the attack and treated it as a crime, promising to find those guilty and punish them, rather than to attack the international groups that funded and enabled them.
There may be no groups behind Major Hasans attack, but the fact that he was an officer in the Army, with full access to a military base and its arsenal of weapons, while holding the views he did, is the first indication of a laxity in security under President Obama.
me. This is no different than some muslim fanatic running into a S’barro in Tel Aviv or in a market in Baghdad and a detonating a suicide vest.
our sensitivity is construed as weakness, and THIS INVITES FUTURE ATTACK.
Yes, LtCol Allen West.
Has anyone heard whether the shooter shaved his body hair beforehand?
Just ask anyone at Fort Hood that day if they felt terrorized? ...of course it was terrorism.
If you want to debate if it was perpetrated by a radicalized islamic fundamentalist as part of his own or greater Jihad, feel free
When a Muslim youth like the Major, struggling to find himself, tormented by lusts unknown to infidel hearts blows he shoots those he is responsible for. Perfectly normal. Officer our Army with Arab Christians and you will be safe. Keep away from the religion of peace. GW was wrong about a number of things.
How many Americans have to die at once to upset this nation? 100, 500, 2,000, 3,000? We know the magic number is somewhere between 13 and 2,819 when the GOP has political sway. But what is it for the Dems and the MSM?
A small city? A large school?
Anyway, the response of the government and MSM on this event will lead to a bigger event. More Americans are going to die because of this mealy mouthed politically correct garbage.
What else is there to say?
“What else is there to say?”
Just this: Hassan is a jihadi.
“Obama never mentioned the T word.”.....
Obama is a panty waist of the worst kind.....
That's true. Intentional or not 0ba-Mao's and the MSM's response is a green light to terrorists. They now know they will get political cover from them and that that will heighten the impact of any attack by deepening the already existing animosity between the right and the left here.
When taken in context with all of 0buttcrack's and the MSM's other words and actions it isn't hard to conclude that it is intentional.
I haven't. I would also like to know if he was wearing any body armor.
There’s one big difference. In Israel they don’t let a$$h*les like this become part of the IDF.
Really? What about the Utah mall shooter? How about the splodeydope who experienced premature detonation at an Oklahoma football game, and only managed to take out himself? Then there's the one who ran over all those people at a university on one of the Carolinas. There was the one who went on a shooting rampage at a Jewish community center in Seattle.
Kind of hard to remember aren't they? That's because the press has done such a wonderful job. I'm sure I've missed a few, anybody have any additions?
I couldn't tell from that surveillance video of him early that morning at the convenience store whether he had hair or not. The press making him out to having some sort of *breakdown* is making me noxious.
Morris is a regular toe-sucking genius.
Also the Muslim who shot up the El Al counter at LAX.
