FBI: Hasan contacts with AQ part of a research project

Well, let’s test this latest theory of FBI inaction, shall we? Had e-mail existed in World War II, would we have ignored messages between an Army major and Josef Goebbels if the officer in question was working on a counter-propaganda project? Would we have shrugged at correspondence between a naval officer studying Kamikaze attacks and a member of Tojo’s staff? Or would the FBI have hotfooted it over to the Pentagon to recall the officer in question ASAP?

The FBI apparently says that your mileage may vary:

"The FBI determined that the e-mails did not warrant an investigation, according to the law enforcement official. Investigators said Hasan’s e-mails were consistent with the topic of his academic research and involved some social chatter and religious discourse."

Gen. George Casey bemoaned the damage that would be done to “diversity” if the Hasan investigation got out of hand.

Unreal. Looks like we already know how the "investigation" will turn out. They`re going to bury this so deep moles won`t be able to find it.

No one can be this stupid. This is intentional misdirection.

Yea...that's what it was. Of course it was...how foolish of me to think there was anything out of the ordinary or potentially wrong with a Major in the US Amry who is a muslim and outspokenly against the war effort and for the Jiadists contacting Al Queda directly.

Yeah, but let one of us wander over to Stormfront and ask about molotov cocktails, and they’ll bury us under the jail.

This is misdirection and obfuscation imho. Who actually had the role of investigating Hansan? One report says it was the DCIS...another says the FBI. That’s two so far.

Research project? FBI has lost it!

These is the same FBI who didn’t bother to look at OU’s ‘lone suicide bomber’s’ computer for three weeks to find a suicide note according to the FBI. Our local PD made 18 trips to the bomb disposal area from the perp’s apartment/car for fear of blowing up a city block. When they detonated, my home shook including the windows which was 5 miles away.

If anyone swallowed that story by the FBI on the OU bomber then they will swallow this one. There was terrorism as well as he spent three months in Pakistan and had a Pakistani roommate.

Tired of being fed Bravo Sierra by the FBI — we can take the facts and not overreact more then we can take being lied to by the FBI.

This is so much misdirection. He had committed no crime and did not appear to be planning one, so the FBI dropped.

The real issue is why the chain of command took no action about a soldier clearly unfit for duty. Just the PowerPoint he gave showed he clearly opposed the Army's mission in Iraq and Afghanistan and had some extreme religious views.

Come on chess player you know how the defense is going to go if there is ANY hint of the Army using this murderer as an agent.
He snapped from the pressure of the Army using this poor murdering miscreant to go against those of his sacred f-ing religion.

Thats the get-out-of-jail-free card for anyone who contacts al-Qaeda, now. They can just claim they were doing research.

Yep, it's the same FBI. Idiots. To this day they refuse to dig any further into OU and that wacko or the connection between Berg and Atta & Co. To be honest, I'm surprised Hasan doesn't have a closer connection to OU though it's been reported he has connections with 9/11 through the iman. Have they bothered to check his cell phone records? Of course, every US citizen has terrorists' email addresses handy for "research purposes", right????

The Rosenbergs, Robert Hannsen, and Aldrich Ames now look pretty foolish for not using that excuse.

Something was fishy. Right after a bad evaluation and the FBI looky-loo at emails he's shipped off to Ft. Hood and suddenly he's being deployed after being at Walter Reed for 12 years. That doesn't add up.

If it was legitimate research, did he use his full name, and/or his miltary affiliation, and did he use an Army computer for the contact? Is there anything in the communication that suggets it was clandestine, or did he do it openly, without concern of detection? Any street cop worth his salt could easily answer these basic questions if he had access to these ‘innocent’ communications.

Bill Clinton was able to use this logic for one free grope.

I heard just yesterday on WLS radio 18% of the women on Chicago mass transit have been sexually assaulted. The mass transit's answer? If after telling the perpetrator his advances are unwelcome, he must stop, but if doesn't, the driver can call the police.

One free grope institutionalized!

That alone should cap it for anyone with an ounce of common sense. And not only does Hasan know precisely how to personally contact this terrorist, the terrorist accommodates Hasan's email chit chats--a plausible notion only if Al-Aulaqi was entirely confident that Hasan was a fellow traveler. No way would al-Aulaqi have risked himself to help out an American soldier with research that would benefit the US military. He had to have been 100% sure of Hasan.

So why would al-Aulaqi be that sure of Hasan? Who gave Hasan al-Aulaqi's e-mail address, and who vouched for Hasan to Al-Aulaqi? The terrorist would not have relied on a few casual encounters with Hasan at the mosque 10 years ago. He'd have thoroughly vetted the guy with numerous trusted contacts to establish his unquestioned ongoing and current loyalty to radical Islam.

Exactly. Ok, perhaps (just a personal idea with nothing to sustain it) the FBI was stringing him along to see other contacts might be much like when cops let drug dealers continue to operate month after month and year after year claiming they're waiting to nab the top guys. Sorry, but I don't buy either tactic. Too much is at risk. Too many innocent lives can be lost during the wait. No, there were too many red flags. There is no excuse for pushing him to these limits (transfer and deployment). That or PC or whatever, the army and the FBI share in some of the blame.
