Skip to comments.FBI: Hasan contacts with AQ part of a research project

Well, lets 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 Tojos 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 Hasans 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.
No one can be this stupid. This is intentional misdirection.
A research project LOL LOL this is a joke right. Good God no wonder other countries think we are a laughing stock. A research project, okie dokie..hey, how about everyone contact Al Qaeda then, I mean, its only research
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.
How did I get so far? Invisible to the FBI? Ignored by the Army?
Given a red carpet by the DHS? Why, I just flashed my Winter Hill Gang Card,
or my Chicago Mob card, or my DNC-Berger-Free card and I was off and out scot-free.
Are you a serious terrorist? Dont leave your cave without them.
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.
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.
And I have a bridge I’ll sell you real cheap.
“A research project, okie dokie..hey, how about everyone contact Al Qaeda then, I mean, its only research”
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????
Oh right ... how stupid do they think I am! I don’t drink the friggin’ kookaid!
Where have I heard that before?
Oh yeah, that’s what former SF Bay area lib radio guy Bernie Ward said about certain chat room activities, isn’t it?
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.
He was writing a book?
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.
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!
Recruiting his PATIENTS? LOL This administration is the biggest joke... They need stephen speilberg to step in and HELP them..counsel them, advise them, direct them and stuff.
It’s like someone - some rocknroll guy? - with child porn on his computer, he was doing “research”.
That’s the same excuse that online porn users give.
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.
