What and when did US Army brass know about Maj. Nidal Hassans extremist views and his ties to a key jihadist cleric and why didnt they act before he gunned down 13 soldiers at Fort Hood six months ago?
Its a simple question and a very significant one, to boot.
But neither the Pentagon nor the Justice Department wants that information made public.
Which is why the two top senators on the Homeland Security Committee Joe Lieberman (I/D-Conn.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) have subpoenaed stonewalling Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Attorney General Eric Holder.
We have repeatedly sought your departments cooperation, they wrote. Our efforts have been met with delay, the production of little that was not already public and shifting reasons for why the departments are withholding [information] that we have requested.
Before he went on his terrorist rampage, Hasan was in regular e-mail contact with Anwar al-Awlaki, the US-born imam who ministered to at least three 9/11 hijackers as well as the would-be Christmas Day underwear bomber.

Gates may understand full-well that Obama is traitorous in his islamic leanings (and in other ways) and, accordingly, he is walking a tight rope. He may believe, that to protect our military and the country from Obama, he needs to stay in place...but to do that requires some fancy footwork (such as appearing to support Obama).
As to Justice under Holder, I don't think there is any doubt as to where its loyalties lie.
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
President Ronald Reagan
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to (have their citizens and military suffer and) repeat it."
I share your thoughts regarding Gates. Why would anyone in his right mind want to serve under Obama other than offering as much protection to the country from Obama as possible.
The PC-agon should’ve paid more attention to Steven Coughlin’s brilliant thesis.
“Why would anyone in his right mind want to serve under Obama other than offering as much protection to the country from Obama as possible.”
You make SECDEF Gates to sound like an Albert Speer under the NAZI Hitler. (I’m NOT saying POTUS Obama is a Hitler - just pointing out an obvious analogy).
