Feds Still Seeking Fort Hood Terror Link: Qaeda debunked, but May Have Had Ties to Hamas
CBS News ^ | November 12, 2009

Posted on 11/12/2009 3:54:39 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Sources tells CBS News that investigators are continuing to look for any possible ties between the alleged Fort Hood shooter, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, and terrorist groups including the Muslim Brotherhood, an affiliate of Hamas.

The Muslim Brotherhood operates behind the scenes in the United States and seeks to subtly place individuals into influential positions in the academic, legal or medical professions to further their cause of undermining the United States.

So far all investigations of Hasan have indicated that he acted alone, without support or direction from any outside group. Stories published this week indicated that Hasan had been in contact with al Qaeda, but further reporting revealed that Hasan had only been in contact with an imam at a mosque he sometimes attended, who had expressed support for al Qaeda - and that Hasan had approached the cleric with questions for a research paper.

Investigators are now also looking at whether Hasan was supporting Islamic charities overseas. Some such charities have been found to funnel money to terrorist organizations.

Earlier Thursday, President Barack Obama has ordered a review of all intelligence related to Fort Hood shooting suspect Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, and whether the information was properly shared and acted upon within government agencies.(continued)

Hasan didn’t act alone, he went to the mosque regularly.

It's not the brotherhood, or al quida or hamas ... it's Islam .. it's Allah .. it's Mohamad ... THOSE are the precipitators of all our military and civilian 'terrorism' deaths.

Unless and until we ban Islam from our land, this war will never cease.

They've been at it .. how many years? .. centuries?

Yea, what “group” was Tim McVeigh a member of? He is commonly cited as a “home grown terrorist”. How can you define the word “terror” or “terrorist” or “terrorist act” in any way that does not include the Ft. Hood massacre?

Gee, It seems “they” are moving their investigation almost a quickly as they did for the Oklahoma City bombing and the Timothy McVeigh's execution.
“Justice delayed is Justice denied.” and “Justice” accelerated is Truth denied and buried.

The FBI should red their own Playbook

One particularly insidious concern that touches all forms of domestic extremism is the lone offender—a single individual driven to hateful attacks based on a particular set of beliefs without a larger group’s knowledge or support. In some cases, these lone offenders may have tried to join a group but were kicked out for being too radical or simply left the group because they felt it wasn’t extreme or violent enough. We believe most domestic attacks are carried out by lone offenders to promote their own grievances and agendas.

As with all forms of extremism, preventing homegrown attacks before they are hatched is our overriding goal. It’s an especially tall order given the civil liberties we all enjoy as American citizens, including the right to free speech. Hate and anger are not crimes; neither are hard-line and poisonous ideologies. It’s only when actions by groups or individuals cross the line into threats, the actual use of force or violence, or other law-breaking activities that we can investigate. That goes for lone offenders, whose high degrees of autonomy make them difficult to stop before they strike.

As a result, we’re not shy about applying our full suite of anti-terror tools and capabilities to threats of homegrown terrorism. That includes our time-tested investigative techniques such as the use of surveillance and informants as well as the new intelligence skills and information-sharing channels we’ve cultivated since 9/11.

If they don’t find a connection to a terrorist group, isn’t that even scarier. Home-grown terrorists that don’t need training or support are probably all over the place.

There are two very damning things IMO. While working on his thesis, he was contacting known terrorists on foreign soil.

Then there’s the little mention on his business cards found at home, that he was a WFA, or some such. The initials meant he was a warrior for Allah.

How do you ignore that, to state he had no known connections to terrorist groups?

This guy was a card carrying warrior of Allah. Does that tell them nothing?

CAIR is another dot to connect:

The FBI claims it cut “formal contacts” with CAIR after federal prosecutors in the 2007 criminal trial of officers of a Texas-based Islamic charity, the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, introduced documents the government said showed links between CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood, which gave rise to Hamas.

“Until we can resolve whether there continues to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and HAMAS, the FBI does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner,” FBI Congressional liaison Richard Powers wrote in an April letter to Senator Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.).

Interesting to look out, but look inward at his superiors, promotion boards, FBI, DIA, NSA, CIA, ETC who failed to protect us from the first successful Islamic domestic terrorist since 9/11/01. All trails lead to NAMEs. Prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.

...Hasan had only been in contact with an imam at a mosque he sometimes attended, who had expressed support for al Qaeda - and that Hasan had approached the cleric with questions for a research paper.

Anwar al-Aulaqi / Anwar al-Awlaki / Anwar al Alwaki is "just an imam?"

Just an imam whose move from San Diego to the terrorist-infested mosque in Falls Church matched the same move to the same mosque by two 9/11 hijackers.

Just happens to be the same mosque where imam al Timimi, Randal Royer of CAIR, KWON and other terror convicts attended.

Of course they will...they are prepared to sweep much larger attacks under the rug. This is just practice.

It's the only way the Obama administration could politically survive terror attacks in the US. Blame it on anything but Muslim terrorism or ignore it. The MSM is more than happy to help.

In retrospect -- and combined with information that Hasan had started yesterday by giving away some of his personal effects, such as furniture -- it appears that his assault at Fort Hood wasn’t the result of a man under extreme pressure suddenly snapping. Instead, it looks like a calculating murderer took the time to prepare for his attack well in advance.") (November 5, 2009)
PAGE SNIPPET: "NidalHasan There was a grenade thrown amongs a group of American soldiers. One of the soldiers, feeling that it was to late for everyone to flee jumped on the grave with the intention of saving his comrades. Indeed he saved them. He inentionally took his life (suicide) for a noble cause i.e. saving the lives of his soldier. To say that this soldier committed suicide is inappropriate. Its more appropriate to say he is a brave hero that sacrificed his life for a more noble cause. Scholars have paralled this to suicide bombers whose intention, by sacrificing their lives, is to help save Muslims by killing enemy soldiers. If one suicide bomber can kill 100 enemy soldiers because they were caught off guard that would be considered a strategic victory. Their intention is not to die because of some despair. The same can be said for the Kamikazees in Japan. They died (via crashing their planes into ships) to kill the enemies for the homeland. You can call them crazy i you want but their act was not one of suicide that is despised by Islam. So the scholars main point is that "IT SEEMS AS THOUGH YOUR INTENTION IS THE MAIN ISSUE" and Allah (SWT) knows best. 05/20/2009"

HOOD: ANWAR AL-AWLAKI'S 'CONSTANTS ON THE PATH OF JIHAD'" by Evan Kohlmann (SNIPPET: "One of the key questions for investigators who are now looking into potential links between radical Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and the accused perpetrator of the massacre at Ft. Hood, Maj. Malik Nidal Hasan, is understanding to what degree al-Awlaki's extreme sermons may have influenced Hasan's actions. Toward that end, they should be keeping an especially close eye out for one such al-Awlaki sermon in particular -- "Constants on the Path of Jihad" -- which itself is based upon an Arabic-language text penned by the founder of Al-Qaida's network in Saudi Arabia, Yousef al-Ayyiri.")
