Deadly denial Fudging the facts on Fort Hood
New York Post ^ | November 10, 2009 ~1:54 AM | Ralph Peters

Posted on 11/10/2009 9:59:34 AM PST by Texas Fossil

As President Obama belatedly appears at Fort Hood today, will he dare to speak the word "terror?"

He won't use the word "Islamist." If he mentions Islam at all, it'll be to sing its praises yet again.

We've already learned that Islamist terrorist Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan attended the Northern Virginia mosque of Imam Anwar al-Aulaqi, a fiery al Qaeda supporter who later fled the United States. We know that Hasan's peers, subordinates and patients repeatedly raised red flags that his superiors suppressed. We know he was a player on Islamist-extremist Web sites. The FBI's uncovering one extremist link after another.

It gets worse: On Sunday evening, a ranking officer in Hasan's medical chain of command raced to cover her butt. Asked why the killer was promoted to major after receiving career-killer performance reviews at Walter Reed, the officer claimed that Hasan faced the same promotion board requirements as everyone else.

Liar, liar, uniform on fire: A dirty big secret in our Army has been that officers' promotion boards have quotas for minorities. We don't call them quotas, of course. But if a board doesn't hit the floor numbers, its results are held up until the list has been corrected. It's almost impossible for the Army's politically correct promotion system to pass over a Muslim physician.

the same guy that said a white cop acted “idiotically” simply because he was a white cop is the same one telling us to not jump to conclusions about the Allah Akubar screaming murderer.

There is no promotion board for doctors to get to O-4. It is automatic one year after completion of residency. Since Hasam was serving, and was not in Leavenworth, he was promoted to O-4. Look elsewhere for PC run amok, it isn't in the promotion.

The Army is a PC laboratory, my Son’s platoon leader is a drug addicted alcoholic woman.

Actually, Barry said, idiotically, that the cop acted stupidly.

Thanks for clarification.

Only reported the article, had no knowledge of promotion policies.

I have had no connection to Army since 1976.

The military has been handed a unique opportunity to call Obama out on where his loyalties lie. Hasan is to be tried in a military court and, if given the death sentence, Obama will be asked to sign his death warrant.

Will the president send a fellow muslim and America hater to the death chamber?

It seems unlikely that the military or any of our PC institutions will learn anything from this, and certainly they won’t accept the truth about Islam. Liberalism is ignorance.

I have a son who is a junior in college. He is thinking about joining the military after college. I myself served in the Marine Corps in the 80s. Heretofore, I have not attempted to influence his decision of which service to join. I have the utmost respect for all of them and I mean that sincerely.

But after hearing General Casey’s comments, I told my son that my advice is that he not join the US Army. I simply do not want him serving under a man like Casey.

They have some liberals in place but not all of them. We need a few good people to start fighting back on this stuff even though they know they'll be Palin-ed. If anyone ever wants to turn this stuff around they're going to have to go in with a mindset of sacrifice because that's what it will take.

regardless of whether Col. Peters has erred on the promotion system
for military M.D.s...a LOT of tough questions need to be asked
AND answered so we find how HOW IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, we paid the
tab for this murderer.
And how all the red flags were PURPOSELY ignored.

I heard a short interview of a classmate of Hasan’s (at Georgetown U.
IIRC). He said Hasan made himself a lightning rod with all sorts of
over-the-top public statements in support of the Jihadis.
And was cut an unlimited amount of slack despite his publically
perfidious commentary.

Yes, tough questions abound.

Tougher still questions strike me concerning Obozo’s hidden history.

He took oath of office to Protect & Defend the Constituion. And has at every step sought to destroy that foundation. With the help of some in Congress and the Senate.

When we repell this assault, will we have the guts to open that can of worms called Treason?

Is anyone else watching Fox News. It seems like people have been waiting all morning for the memorial service to begin. Is his One-ness making them wait? Like he is making the soldiers wait in Afganistan? Like how he really feels about the military? This is making me madder every second it is delayed.

Maybe he is waiting for Glenn Beck's show to start so he can preempt it.

It's all the IMMIGRATION AND NATURALIZATION SERVICE'S FAULT ! ! !

They are bringing multi-generational terrorists into the country. Let's see: 911, the war in Iraq, the war in Afghanistan, the Fort Hood shootings, the drug wars, all because of the INS.

CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATION NOW ! ! ! !
