The FBI said today that it appears Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan acted alone in the Fort Hood shootings, and was not involved in terrorist activities when a joint terrorism task force crossed paths with him last year.
At this point, there is no information to indicate Major Nidal Malik Hasan had any co-conspirators or was part of a broader terrorist plot, the FBI said in a statement. The investigation to date has not identified a motive, and a number of possibilities remain under consideration. We are working with the military to obtain, review and analyze all information relating to Major Hasan in order to allow for a better understanding of the facts and circumstances that led to the Fort Hood shooting. Understandably, there is a large volume of information in various forms, and it will take us some time to complete this work.
The FBI also said the investigation includes forensic examinations of Hasan's computers and any of his Internet activity in hopes of gaining insight into his motivation....
...agents and analysts reviewed unspecified communications between Hasan and the unidentified subject of the investigation, and determined that the content of those communications was consistent with research being conducted by Maj. Hasan in his position as a psychiatrist at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
Because the content of the communications was explainable by his research and nothing else derogatory was found, the JTTF concluded that Major Hasan was not involved in terrorist activities or terrorist planning, the statement said. Other communications that the FBI was aware of were similar to the ones reviewed by the JTTF.
The FBI declined today to provide further information about the target of the investigation, or to specify whether that probe remained ongoing.

Is this Scrappleface or The Onion?
According to ABC News Radio, Hasan had business cards that said “Soldier of Allah”.
FBI, always correct.
“FBI says Hasan wasn’t involved in terrorist activities”
Major Hasan: Soldier of Allah; Many Ties to Jihad Web Sites
.....”He was making no secret of allegiances,” said former FBI agent Brad Garrett, an ABC News consultant. ....
Seems like deliberately shooting 40 unarmed victims in the name of Allah would qualify as "terrorist activity".
...but maybe that's just me.
It’s Barbara Streisand.
Guess they is yet another lack of communication. Thanks for posting that link!
The key language is the part which says they are talking about the time when the task force crossed paths with him last year.
they = there
Wow, that was fast. Are they sure? Or are Obama and Holder wanting to bury this as quickly as possible?
WTH! Killing innocent people while screaming Allah Akbar isn’t a terrorist activity?!
Scrappleface is right!
>>FBI says Hasan wasn’t involved in terrorist activities <<
Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn’t the act that got him shot considered “terrorist activity”.
Yea right, he is just a Muslim with anger issues... (face palm)
Bring back J. Edgar Hoover. He may have been an SOB, but he was OUR SOB.
