Skip to comments.Top Republican says White House hiding info on Fort Hood (Among other things...)
Posted on 11/12/2009 11:53:56 AM PST by bronzey
The ranking Republican on the House intelligence committee on Tuesday night accused the White House of withholding information on the Fort Hood attack.
Rep. Pete Hoekstra (Mich.) said administration officials delayed briefing members of Congress about the alleged gunman, raising "red flags" about what the White House was hiding.
"When they withhold information, you always start asking questions," Hoekstra told Fox News. "That's what raises red flags. What do they know that they don't want us to know?"
Hoekstra linked President Barack Obama's handling of Fort Hood to a chain of other GOP criticisms of the president, including the administration's treatment of detainees and an investigation into possible CIA abuse.
"It is a political correctness that is

“Red flags” - what other kind is this white house going to fly?
I’m not sure telling the world what you know is a good thing at this point. Perhaps they are still trying to find more information or don’t want to compromise sources or agents in the field.
Of course, I’m critical and skeptical of this “transparent” administration ... but let’s not go overboard paranoid about it. The investigation is ongoing and we may catch other fish (assuming our enforcement agencies are competent).
Loose lips sink ships.
Casey was okay with the result. He says that it would be even WORSE if we weren’t so “diverse”.
Enemy agents. There is diversity.
Except Obama is changing the rules so he can purge even more Republican appointees from the Federal Government. So much for tolerance, diversity, or bipartisanship or even a peaceful exchange of power. The opposition party is considered the “real” enemy by this Administration. And THAT is a tragedy.
I don’t think there’s a person around who doesn’t think we’re going to hear only part of the story. I’m also betting that Hasan will commit suicide....somehow...against all odds. Obama doesn’t want to deal with this and he doesn’t know how anyways. Present as usual.
The smart money is on heart attack or blood clot from his injuries.
You have to have equal representation between those who love America and those who hate it in order to have real diversity in the military.
Enough has been leaked that there really isn’t any point to hiding stuff unless they are trying to nab an associated terrorist kingpin or something. But I highly doubt DHS could take time out of their busy schedule of monitoring returning vets, pro-lifers, NRA members, conservatives, libertarians, etc... to bother with going after the real enemies.
Just because you’re paranoid, doesn’t mean they’re not after you!
Since when has this administration withheld information in the interest of “National Security”.
They leak for political expediency and they withhold for the same reason.
This whole notion of “diversity” in the ranks flies in the face of one of the foundations of discipline, unity and uniformity that makes an effective military functional.
A military organization isn’t worth spit if they try to operate as an assembly of individuals.
Just ask von Steuben.
W are their real enemy. They don’t care about radical islam. They care about destroying our capitalist system and replacing it with some commie crap.
Blame Clinton -
the libs under his admin looked at the military as the perfect experimentation laboratory for their pet liberal causes.
Of course, their experiments were colored by the desire to destroy the effectiveness of the military.
Bush had 8 years as president to fix them. He chose not to.
odumbo is probably trying to blame the gun business
What did Obama know - and when did he know it!?
Don't forget that mothers and children who wave American flags at peaceful Tea Party Protests are also on the "terrorist" watchlist over at the DHS and FBI.
I am so happy that these imbeciles and thugs are about to take over our medical programs.
“What did Obama know - and when did he know it!?”
Yeah, let’s get FRed in on this, he’ll find out the answer to that very question!
Seriously, this is all too weird. 0bama is afraid here. I’ll bet dollars to doughnuts, there is a connection, like a photograph, perhaps with some nice words written on it from 0bama to Hasan, the fatigue wearing, muzzie terrorist.
Just him being on that committee is goofy. They already had a history of the guy making anti-American statements, not supporting our troops, wanting us out of the Middle East, his love of islam, known correspondance with terrorists.... um, wait, who was I talking about again - Obama or Hasam?
According to ABC News Radio, Hasan had business cards that said "Soldier of Allah". I kid you not. Sadly.
We the taxpayer paid Hasan(bacon bacon bacon) 90 grand a year and he sent it to Pakistan. Hmmm. His apartment cost a mere 300 a month and looked as if no one lived there since he sent most his money to other terrorists.
Zero on Hasan “we must not jump to conclusions”.
Zero on the Cambridge Police Dept “Athough I don’t know the facts...They acted stupidly.” Gee that sounds like a jump to a conclusion.
F the muslims.
Free the Longform.
“Kenyan-born Obama to Become Illinois Senator”(headline from newspaper after senatorial race).
The Usurper. B.Hussein “my muslim faith” Obama.
Arg. America is too PC to survive.
Now you’re getting hot.
They weren’t in the mosque garbage five days later for nothing.
Funny, that. ;^)
