Hasan al qaeda

Report: CIA knew of Texas shooter's al-Qaeda ties

US intelligence agencies had prior knowledge of Maj. Nidal Hasan's ties to global terror organization; not clear if military sources were informed

Ynet News Service Israel

US intelligence agencies knew Major Nidal Malik Hasan – who allegedly carried out the massacre at Fort Hood military base in Texas – tried to make contact with the al-Qaeda terror organization only several months prior to the shooting, the ABC network reported Monday, quoting security sources in Washington.

The incident that horrified the United States occurred last Thursday night. The gunman opened fire inside the infirmary waiting room at the Fort Hood military base in Texas, killing 13 soldiers who were in line to see the doctor. The gunman was intercepted by security forces at the base.

Initial investigation concluded that Hasan, who worked as a psychiatrist at the base, operated alone.

In the latest development, ABC network revealed that US intelligence sources were aware of the Muslim major's attempts to contact sources affiliated to al-Qaeda.

While it is not clear whether the military was informed of these attempts, a security source said that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) refused to release any intelligence they might have collected in connection with the shooter.

In Obama’s Army it is OK if a Terrorist joins and mass murders people.

Did anyone else hear this?

Worst attack on US Army base inside America is on Obama’s watch, and while there was clear warning signs.

Wait, where are all those "Bush knew! Bush knew!" clymers? What about the detestable Michael Moore? Will we see him putting a clock on Odumbo while he cavorts in Copenhagen for the Chicago Olympics bid while his administration ignores a member of the Army trying to contact the enemy? Will the Jersey Hags run to the nearest microphone? And so on.

Given the nature of this event, the publicity it has drawn, and how it would be viewed and taken in the much of the Islamic world, I disagree with your mention.....al Qaeda via bin Laden or a spokeperson would have claimed responsibility. The only question is whether such a claim of responsibility will be immediate or via another frakin’ video.

Apparently (And I no more write the articles I post than you do—And I don’t expect that Psion does either), ABC is reporting that Hasan “reached out” to Al Qaeda in recent months.

“tried to make contact with the al-Qaeda terror organization only several months prior to the shooting, the ABC network reported Monday, quoting security sources in Washington. “

It’s in the first paragraph.

I think the Daily Telegraph was the outlet for the report on Hasan's recent visitor. I'm also wondering if Hasan was meeting someone during his trips to that strip club.

It was that very morning. A dude with dark complexion, long dark hair and mustache, and Islamic dress. He never had visitors before.

That morning, visitor stayed about 5 minutes.

People on threads were speculating “Islamic last rites”.

This is not Al Quiada’s doing, it is our legislators. In this age of political correctness, we gave him access, we paid his salary, we sent him to school, we tip toed around him, we feared to question him, then we died. It was a waste, it was needless, and if we do not learn from this all those who died, will have died in vain. I am ashamed that our government bestows more rights on criminals and enemies than it does to protect the American people. I am beyond angry.

As such, does that conclusively prove a tie does it? Until further evidences are brought out publically, it al remains speculation. Again, my point was that if indeed al Qaeda was involved directly or indirectly with Hasan, they would invariably claim responsibility. The recruitment draw, among others things, would be too much of an incentive for al Qaeda to not proclaim responsibility.

“People on threads were speculating “Islamic last rites”.

He would have his entire body shaved except for his scalp. It would be interesting to know as it would indicate planning and premeditation. Of course its pretty obvious he did plan this and any theories about Hasan “snapping” is BS

There are plenty of suspected AQ or their assitant organizations’ attacks for which there was no public claim of responsibility.

They do NOT “invariably” claim responsiblity.

And AQ is not a tightly run ship - it’s a bunch of loosely connected sub-orgs, cells and maybe lone actors who identify with AQ and maybe recieve tactical assistance directly or indirectly.

What are you trying to do - push the lone nutcase crap?

I think they were only ignored at a lower level, due to fear of being “bigoted”. I think he was actually more than tolerated - pushed - by higher levels.

This is not studidity that he wasn’t kicked out, it was treason.

Obviously they know at the hospital whether his body was shaved or not.

People know. Of course, we’re just the American public, we don’t deserve to know anything.

If there were any real investigative journalists, someone would have contacted people at the hospital to find out. Disguised voice, pixilated face, etc.

No, they’re all complicit ****heads.

I work in the Terrorism field, you?

Nice try at in your at your attempt to tell me what organizational structure al Qaeda has....being I already know what it is.

The London subway terrorist attack(s) come to mind here as with a number of other acts of terrorism that al Qaeda has claimed responsibility for using small groups and/or “lone actors.” You research much? Spare me the “What are you trying to do - push the lone nutcase crap?” because it fails miserably to counter the point I was making: until further evidences are produced there any talk of a “tie” or “tied” to al Qaeda is conjecture and proves not a damn thing.

I’m just an observor, you’re a noob, and your statement seemed very much to be promoting the “lone nutcase” nonsense. If you don’t think that or promote that, great.

What is your take on his motive and connections, then?

I very likely did not get your point, and if my tone was harsh, I apologize. You could (have) explained yourself a bit more.

But if you advance your viewpoint, instead of just asserting that it is not possible to be any AQ connection, that would be good.

Hey LJ. This is more difficult to deal with than 9/11. (At least for me.)

That we knew and did nothing is a bitter realization. If our leaders won't protect our servicemen on home turf why should we think they will be supported anywhere else?

Hey to you too, ARridgerunner! I just freepmailed you a few mintues ago.

I am much more freaked out becuase of the usurper in chief and his many assistants either tolerated this, enabled it, or worse.

You expect Muslim jihadis to be Muslim jihadis. But the presisdent, his advisors, the head of DHS, the military - you expect them to be on the side that is opposed to jihad.

That is the thing that is keeping me awake, poring over FR way too many hours a day, and ruining my digestion.

Plus I’m sort of getting over the flu (2 1/2 weeks so far) and too out of it to do much else.
