Skip to comments.Obama administration defies congressional subpoena on Fort Hood documents
Posted on 04/28/2010 5:13:35 AM PDT by highlander_UW
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.
(Excerpt) Read more at washingtonpost.com ...
"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.
Commie elitists like Obama haven't a religious bone in their bodies. They only pretend to respect religion when it suits their needs. His Black Liberation Theology "church" was nothing more than a Marxist-revolutionary front operation. Communists concocted various religions decades ago to use as a means of pushing "Liberation" (communist revolution). Farrakhan's so-called "Nation of Islam" is another entirely bogus Black Liberation Theology 'religion'.
Obama DENIED emergency aid to people and small businesses in CT yesterday (we had massive flooding here recently)...how ‘unexpected’ that it would be Lieberman’s home state.
Makes you say hmmmmm.
O is pure evil...
If president Bush had refused a congressional subpoena it'd be the top story repeating every hour on the hour.
Amazon Book Review:
"Vastly Illuminating!" September 25, 2004
By Kat Bakhu
"I had long wondered why people on the Left had the propensity to speak more positively about people who would slit their throats than they do about their own country, which affords them more freedom and opportunity than anywhere else. David Horowitz has answered that question thoroughly and convincingly in his Unholy Alliance. Where I felt bewildered and confused, I now feel crystal clear. Unholy Alliance is such a great book.
It begins with the leftist movements at the beginning of the 20th Century, and works its way up to the present day, exploring the anti-American attitude of these movements in detail. Horowitz shows that the enemies of the US back then are largely the same group today, operating under the same misperceptions, making the same mistakes, and pursuing the same impossible utopia.
Individual chapters are included on the Patriot Act (I was persuaded that it is a GOOD thing); the democratic flip-flop on Iraq once G.W. Bush implemented what they agreed with Clinton needed to be done; the driving components of the current anti-war movement; as well as chapters on individual personalities who are major spokespeople of the Left. Horowitz covers a lot of ground, and he covers it concisely and clearly. Unholy Alliance is richly informative without ever being boring or plodding.
This book is so illuminating that I simply cannot do justice to it here. I love people who reason so clearly that they help me get my own reasoning clear. Horowitz is just that type of person! In the terrain of mindless clichés (no-blood-for-oil, etc.), he is a breath of real fresh air."
Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left -by David Horowitz
Not all dissent is equal, and Americans whose actions are calculated to give aide and comfort to the butchers who murdered 3,000 innocent people on September 11, 2001 are not patriotic at all... they are, in fact, quite the opposite.

Covering for a muslim terrorist of the worst kind.
Checked this on Snopes.com and its TRUE! See
Well, boys and girls, today we are letting the fox guard the hen
house. The wolves will be herding the sheep!
Obama Appoints two devout Muslims to home land security posts. Doesn’t
this make you feel safer already?
Obama and Janet Napolitano Appoint Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim
As Assistant Secretary for Policy Development.
Homeland security Secretary Janet Napolitano also swore-in Kareem Shora,
a devout Muslim, who was born in
Damascus, Syria as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the
Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).
NOTE: Has anyone ever heard a new government official being
identified as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout
Protestant...? Just wondering.
> Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security
positions? Doesn’t this make you feel safer already??
That should make America much safer, huh!!
Was it not “devout Muslim men” that flew planes into U.S. buildings 8 years ago?
Was it not a devout Muslim who killed 13 at Fort Hood?
Well, American voters, you can’t say we didn’t try to warn you.........
True, and if Bush had been involved in a story similar to the actions attributed to Obama in the redacted parts of the Blago investigation documents, the MSM would be in one of its wildest, 24/7 frenzies in all their frenzied history.
“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.”
IMO, an example of the adoption of extreme political correctness, religious in this case, was the disinvite of Rev. Graham by the Pentagon.
It is safe to say that Obama is not only getting the benefit of the doubt from the press but they are actually burying stories to protect his regime.

Barack Obama received at least some instruction in the Islamic faith of his father and went with him to the mosque, but the importance of this experience is vastly overstated by conservative commentators who seek to portray Obama as a Muslim of sorts. Radical anti-Americanism, rather than Islam, was the reigning faith in the Dunham household. ...
Barack Obama is a clever fellow who imbibed hatred of America with his mother's milk, but worked his way up the elite ladder of education and career. He shares the resentment of Muslims against the encroachment of American culture, although not their religion. He has the empathetic skill set of an anthropologist who lives with his subjects, learns their language, and elicits their hopes and fears while remaining at emotional distance. That is, he is the political equivalent of a sociopath. The difference is that he is practicing not on a primitive tribe but on the population of the United States.
There is nothing mysterious about Obama's methods. "A demagogue tries to sound as stupid as his audience so that they will think they are as clever as he is," wrote Karl Krauss. Americans are the world's biggest suckers, and laugh at this weakness in their popular culture. Listening to Obama speak, Sinclair Lewis' cynical tent-revivalist Elmer Gantry comes to mind, or, even better, Tyrone Power's portrayal of a carnival mentalist in the 1947 film noire Nightmare Alley. The latter is available for instant viewing at Netflix, and highly recommended as an antidote to having felt uplifted by an Obama speech. ..."
Article: Obama's women reveal his secret
Transparency in action!
Also from Obama...From Dreams of My Father: I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mothers race.
Obama is a racist...he said so.
don’t get it as I am no lawyer but how can they ignore this
my question too as I thought they had to comply.
How can they ignore this and why are they hiding evidence and reports?
HEY MEDIA WHERE ARE YOU?
like he hasn;t done much to MS either
notice how the media is hiding this story as best as they can AGAIN
why is the white house and justice dept not showing records and would rather go to court over this
if Bush had ignored this then the media would be going mad but of course it’s crickets time from them
I hope the media will be investigated in their corrupt reporting and exposed as this is corrupt to the core
Congress controls the military. If Obama doesn’t cooperate, they should simply open their own investigation and call in all witnesses and start a square one inquiry.
The WAshington/Chicago thugocracy must be brought to heel.
The Obama junta is now being tested by freedom loving America. The State of Arizona is now embattled. We must support freedom,our constitution and the State of Arizona in enforcing current laws that the feds will not.
The makings of a civil war are emminant.The Obama Junta will stand down and follow the constitution or it will now invoke race riots in Phoenix.
If the Obama Junta has the resolve of revolutionaries
driven by Alinsky, we indeed will likely have conflict, at least until federal authorities realize that the constitution is not being followed.
God speed the state of Arizona and those patriots in Congress who love freedom and the constitution. The rest are worse than thugs.
Obama is hiding details about the Fort Hood shootings that do not fit with the politically correct image he wants about Muslims.Muslims are a threat to our nation and the Obama junta wants to fool us on order to weaken us.
Very interesting article. Good post.
From the article (from 2008)you posted:
“Both Obama and the American public should be very careful of what they wish for. As the horrible example of Obama’s father shows, there is nothing worse for an embittered outsider manipulating the system from within than to achieve his goals - and nothing can be more terrible for the system. Even those who despise America for its blunders of the past few years should ask themselves whether the world will be a safer place if America retreats into a self-pitying shell”
...and the media is where?
I would entirely agree with you except for the fact that security is not what this is about. When Bush was President there were leaks all over the place and the media didn’t have any problem printing them. Now all of a sudden nothing? Also the fact that this guy is tied to Obams (being part of his transition team) makes their stonewalling highly suspect.
Same place they've been since the election campaign began with bambi in the race.
In the military, anyone above the rank of of O-4 is likely to be a politician. Certainly any flag officer with more than 2-stars.
[Obama] signed into law a measure...that designated Sept. 11 as a National Day of Service
In other words, nihilistic liberals are planning to drain 9/11 of all meaning.
