The Obama administration said Tuesday it would provide more information to Congress about the Fort Hood shootings but continued to defy a subpoena request for witness statements and other documents.
After days of negotiations, the Pentagon and Justice Department informed a Senate committee that they would not comply with congressional subpoenas to share investigative records from the Nov. 5 shootings at Fort Hood, Tex., which killed 13 people.

"Major Nidal Malik Hasan, who allegedly killed 11 [count now 13, or 14 if you include the unborn child of the 21-year-old female soldier -etl] people before being shot and wounded by police at Fort Hood, had said Muslims should "rise up" and attack Americans in retaliation for the US war in Iraq, a former army colleague said."
"He said Muslims should stand up and fight the aggressor and that we should not be in the war in the first place." He said that Major Hasan said he was "happy" when a US soldier was killed in an attack on a military recruitment centre in Arkansas in June. An American convert to Islam was accused of the shootings.
Col Lee alleged that other officers had told him that Major Hasan had said "maybe people should strap bombs on themselves and go to Times Square" in New York."
"Soldiers reported that the gunman shouted "Allahu Akbar!" an Arabic phrase for "God is great!" before opening fire, said Lt. Gen. Robert Cone, the base commander."
The fact that extreme political correctness had insinuated itself into our military to the degree necessary for this event to have occurred is the most frightening thing about this whole episode.
More like obama is taking the side of hassan.
He did tell us that if the poop hits the prop, he would side with the muslims.
Can members of the Administration be arrested for failing to comply with a Congressional subpeona?
I agree. I had thought our military was somewhat insulated from the perversion of the left...but when one considers it, the path for promotion is highly political...which is the realm liberals love to infest.
Aiding his fellow Muslim brother.
“He said Muslims should stand up and fight the aggressor and that we should not be in the war in the first place.”
He sounds just like a lib!
There is probably a constitutionally way to force the admin to comply, but this gang threw out the constitution the day he infiltrated our White House.
This administration wants to rewrite history and mark 9/11 as merely a criminal act not worthy of national remembrance.
Afterall it hurts Obama’s brethen and kin.
Don't be silly! Laws are for the little people and tea-baggers. The mere fact that you even asked indicates you're racist.
Get back to work serf. There are taxes to be paid.
(It’s ok when DEMS do it.)
Zero don’t need no stinkin’ CHECKS AND BALANCES!
I wonder if someone in the Secret Service would ever go âFort Hoodâ.....just curious.
Secret Service code name = Renegade. How apt - Obama is a lawless & rebellious man.
If they could, Nazi Pelosi would have arrested Karl Rove personally.
And it’s an anomaly that the Obama gang even received this subpoena because of Lieberman’s departure from the leftists on this one issue (and only this one issue). All the more important to win back the House and even the Senate so more investigations can be started and subpoenas sent to Obama in far greater numbers.
