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.

Has al Qaeda claimed any responsibility?
In Obama’s Army it is OK if a Terrorist joins and mass murders people.
Did anyone else hear this?
Apparently ABC will be airing the story tonight.
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.
Terrorist forums gleefully praising him. They rarely claim resposibility.
So who’d going to fall on their career sword?
And zer0 gave a shout out as one of his first response.
zer0 and the dems have until next summer to complete the destruction on the US economy. Then the election cycle begins, Unless stopped first, It looks to be our only hope.
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.
Barry lied, people died.
(Sorta catchy ain’t it?)
What does that have to do with anything?
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.
a plot-thickening *ping*
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”.
Sounds like alternate-lifestyle sexual encounter,,protected by Hate Speech legitimization (Jihad Watch commentators have some very unkind threads regarding this)
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
Yes, I heard it. It was the day before at his apartment. A man in islamic garb. So says his landlord in a live interview I saw.
Thanks Jeremiah....here's hoping someone gets fired for this.
Unbelievable that his trash talking and threats were ignored.
Unkind threads? What do you mean? I don’t get if you’re serious or sarcastic, need help...
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.
People don’t need to be fired for this, they need to be indicted.
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.
AL QAEDA TIED TO FT. HOOD MASSSACRE?
Good question; here’s another: Do bears cr@p in the woods?
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.
Music to my ears!
Sheesh, on a hair trigger or something? Got acid indigestion?
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.

Thank you for the link. Informative and a bit more in-depth than what was thus far conjectured. Again, thank you.
No problem and I stand corrected.
The article title and contents were in adequate but that has been rectified via link produced in this thread.
Again, my bad and I stand corrected.
I think many of us are a bit - on edge.
I haven’t slept or eaten well in days.
This is too freaking horrible. The tentacles of treason go far, very far.
Probably the Jamie Gorelik wall is still up blocking the transfer of crucial information between the agancies.
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.
Have you seen this? It’s a pretty good little series - if you don’t mind a big of bloody martial arts. Beautiful scenery with a bit of Sanskrit mantras here and there. And killing bad guys.
A BIT of bloody etc. Dang, and I even previewed it.
There are ten parts, they’re up to eight shown so far.
I'm getting over some gunk myself so will check it tomorrow. (Might be time to read the Gita again, too.)
heard alot on FNC tonite. His old imam is in the ME as we speak & his name has previously been on TM. Don’t forgot BO (Barry Obama) said let’s not jump to conclusions #”^&?>:!!!
That was sarcasm..... I do not operate within the confines of Text-Talk or Inner-City Patois.
I will not “LOL”.
Have Americans forgotten the English language?
“in adequate” ?
Sheeesh! Any English speakers here?
Anything more to add, Tamar?
If not, move along because you did not add jack squat to this thread or is “jack squat” trademarked for use with only Barry?
You are an extreme Nube,,,,, so we have been tolerant, however, you may be happier somewhere else.
I am happy right here.
You going to make me leave?
Move along child.
