FBI says Hasan wasn't involved in terrorist activities (nothing to see, now, just move along)
Houston Chronicle ^ | 11/12/2009 | GUILLEROM CONTRERAS

Posted on 11/12/2009 1:15:16 PM PST by mojito

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.

Hmm.

Seems like deliberately shooting 40 unarmed victims in the name of Allah would qualify as "terrorist activity".

...but maybe that's just me.

The key language is the part which says they are talking about the time when the task force crossed paths with him last year.

“The investigation to date has not identified a motive, and a number of possibilities remain under consideration."

Top five possibilities...

1. Someone stole his Halloween candy and he went looking for the thief.
2. The Army was messing with his pension, and he wanted to teach them a lesson.
3. Someone once, a long time ago, looked at him the wrong way.
4. He was a bed-wetter as a child, and the memories pushed him over the edge.
5. He thought the Koran was an Army training manual, and he was just following orders.

OK, FBI, get on with it and solve this case!

Well f***....just give him his guns back, and reinstate him to his office and rank, with apologies from Obama.

I wonder what they would do with a christian guy who surfed skinhead and KKK websites, but never officially joined them, who when out and shot 30 muslims? He would be branded everything from David Duke to Timothy McVeigh and they would try and outlaw guns and Christianity on the spot.

Everyone who knew this was going to happen, raise your hand.

I agree with them. Hasan appears to be SJS, Sudden Jihadi Syndrome, as opposed to a part of an organized effort. This is not to excuse any like minded scum who might have egged him on, but all outward appearances are that he alone decided that he alone should murder as many of our soldiers as possible.

Oh really? And who did Hasan have to his apartment the day before it happened???

Hasan’s apartment manager said he *never* saw anybody with Hasan at his apartment. Until the day BEFORE the incident.

Neil Cavuto reported on his show today that the White House has asked for all documents in possession of all the various agencies, to be turned over to them. Can anyone verify that I heard this right.

Of course not.

If this whitehouse concedes that this was a terrorist act, they would also concede that Dick Cheney was right when he stated that the U.S. is less safe today from terrorist attack than we were during the Bush administration.

Makes sense to me.

motive = (a) to kill as many USA highly trained military personnel so they can’t go to the war zone and harry and harass the Islamist fanatics, (b) to make it impossible for folks to be at ease in a fortified USA military base on USA soil so they lives with a high degree of unease and anxiety (i.e. terror), (c) to prove to other Muslims that you can pull off such a stunt with the full support of the FBI, President, Army Chief of Staff and all USA media (except Fox news - which really is not a new organization anyway).

Dude, don;t go that far! How about the DHS report on Right Wing Extremists this past April? ANYONE with a Gadsen Flag, a Ron Paul bumper sticker, a Bible on hand, or carrying a copy of the Constitution was INSTANTLY branded a right-wing extremist!!! How about the LAME excuse that the FBI had “First-Amendment concerns” about Maj. Hasan, therefore could not/would not “engage” into an investigation because his communications with AL QAEDA!!! were “consistent with his research”???? BULLLCRAPPP!!!! Like you state, if I right now, were to research the terms “white AND supremacy AND fertilizer”, I would have the ATF / SWAT knocking my door down in 48 hours!!!

If you or any Christian right now, hands out a Bible to a co-worker and proselytized, you would be out of the job and the FBI and ACLU would be after your a$$ in a minute!

I worked at a Watch Center during the elections, and if ANYONE even said ANYTHING close to “Obama and wish and death/harm/guns” in the same paragraph, and totally out of context-they had the USSS visiting within 24 hrs to harass them!!!! This is total B.S.!

The FBI has blood on their hands and do not even have the honor to fire the agent in charge of this “investigation”! Director Mueller should resign YESTERDAY!!!

If Fort Hood had been carried out by a WASP named James Smith, it would take the media .005 seconds to brand him as a RWE, and furthermore, had they discovered that he had (GASP!!!) a Bible in his apartment, his radio tuned to a Glenn Beck show, or something of the like, the Lamestream media would be calling for Glenn’s head!!!
