Senior Official: More Hasan Ties to People Under Investigation by FBI

Alleged Shooter Had "Unexplained Connections" to Others Besides Jihadist Cleric Awlaki

By MARTHA RADDATZ, BRIAN ROSS, MARY-ROSE ABRAHAM, and REHAB EL-BURI

Nov. 10, 2009

A senior government official tells ABC News that investigators have found that alleged Fort Hood shooter Nidal Malik Hasan had "more unexplained connections to people being tracked by the FBI" than just radical cleric Anwar al Awlaki. The official declined to name the individuals but Congressional sources said their names and countries of origin were likely to emerge soon.

A senior government official tells ABC News that investigators have found that alleged Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan had ?more unexplained connections to people being tracked by the FBI? than just radical cleric al-Awlaki. The official declined to name the individuals but Congressional sources said their names and countries of origin were likely to emerge soon.

(Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences/Muhammad ud-Deen/AP Photos)Questions already surround Major Hasan's contact with Awlaki, a radical cleric based in Yemen whom authorities consider a recruiter for al Qaeda. U.S. officials now confirm Hasan sent as many as 20 e-mails to Awlaki. Authorities intercepted the e-mails but later deemed them innocent or protected by the first amendment...

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that Hasan gave a PowerPoint presentation to fellow Army doctors in 2007 in which he said... "We love death more than you love life."

It’s easy to make the connection. Hasan = Obama Policies. But Obama is slowly killing us off unlike Hasan

Gosh...Is this a surprise.

I don’t know about Yogi Berra. But this quote should have registered to somebody.

Hassan: “We love death more than you love life.”

Osama bin Laden: “We love death. The US loves life. That is the difference between us two.”

Drip, drip, drip. More and more just keeps coming out about this terrorist muslim scumbag. I have noticed something about the media coverage n this. ABC news really seems to be the ones who are breaking the news on all of his terrorist connections. Just seems weird.

The Obama/Progressive/MSM story line has quickly turned into what looks to be an attempted cover up. Heads better roll for this.

Is this actually getting out into the news coverage or is it just on ABC news website? I’m just wondering how many ordinary Americans are reading about the various things coming out about Hassan.

“We’re concerned any time a house of worship is searched in this fashion,” said Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Washington, D.C.-based civil rights group. “And we would follow up to see if there was probable cause for the search and if it was carried out in the appropriate and legal manner.”

CAIR talking about the trash bins being searched today by the FBI. What the article doesn’t say is that the FBI only searched the trash and then left according to other reports released today. THEY NEVER EVEN WENT IN THE MOSQUE! That’s pretty strange too! If the FBI was concerned enough to go through the trash..why in hell didn’t they search inside the mosque as well?

More PC crap?

“Despite ban, Holder to speak to CAIR-linked group”

“Attorney General Eric Holder has agreed to give a keynote speech later this month to a Michigan group which includes the local branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations even though the FBI has formally severed contacts with the controversial Muslim civil rights organization...”

CONFIRMED: The FBI knew of this man's connection to an Al QAEDA recruiter...and other radical islamists...and never informed the US Army.

That said, the US Army had PLENTY of information to drum him out anyway: "We love death more than you love life"

Both culpable.

However, a connection to Al Qaeda should have been the TRUMP.

A clear case of malfeasance.

You are correct, of course. It's a cover-up bordering on treason.

Shooter (Nidal Malik Hasan) advised Obama transition

Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the alleged shooter in yesterday's massacre at Fort Hood, played a homeland security advisory role in President Barack Obama's transition into the White House, according to a key university policy institute document.

Let's see the FBI investigate that.

Hmm. Maybe searching trash doesn't require the FBI to provide information on probable cause to a judge to get permission?

Most of our judges in Texas would have offered to go help in the search themselves..so I doubt getting a warrant here would have been a problem...lol!

Obviously.

I'm getting the impression that Hasan's post-graduate study consisted mainly in the study of Islam, with the blessings of the Army.

The WaPo reported that his email correspondence with Alwaki and other Islamists was part of the research on his "thesis" -- if true, it's something the public has a major interest in reading.

In addition, his presentations, both as a psychiatric intern and in pursuit of his post-grad degree in Disaster and Preventive Psychiatry at Bethesda, seemed to have consisted solely in the proselytizing of Islam to fellow students.

He was also reprimanded for proselytizing Islam to his patients at Walter Reed.

If both the FBI and the Army were so unconcerned about his activities, we have to wonder how many more Hasans are out there, subsidized by the military and/or government in the study and spread of radical Islam within the ranks?

Hassan: “We love death more than you love life.”
I immediately mentally connected that quote to Bin Laden. Why didn't our "intelligence" services? Oh and the "We" part should have been a clue ... :-(

"We love death more than you love life."

Same exact spirit as the baby-killers and their enablers.
