(CBS News) President Obama on Tuesday vowed to hold whoever was responsible for the killing spree in Afghanistan that left 16 civilians dead over the weekend "fully accountable," directing the Pentagon to "spare no effort" in conducting a full investigation to find out what happened.
"The United States takes this as seriously as if it were our own citizens and our own children who were murdered," Mr. Obama said from the White House Rose Garden. "We're heartbroken over the loss of innocent life."

I hate this rotten bastard. He isn’t worth the dirt he walks on.
We have a president who loves Muslims and hates Christians and Americans.
WHEN WILL PEOPLE WAKE UP???!!!!

We couldn’t rush to judgement on Nidal “Allahu Akabar” Hasan, but we can rush to judgement on this guy because he didn’t praise Allah while he killed people.

Looks like our president is judge, jury and executioner.
I predict that he will be held unaccountable due to mental illness caused by his Iraq head injuries!
And that’s not a bad thing.

Exactly. It makes me sick.
I saw a headline this morning in the Boston Herald that said. “Seargent Psycho.” It made me want to cry.
Here’s a guy with a purple heart who served his country on three tours in Middle East war zones, and is sent back out after incurring a brain injury. And when he snaps, the president (who claimed he “had their back”) throws him to the wolves.

Manchurian candidate. Interesting in that movie how service men were programed to kill just with a few simple words

If we execute a mentally ill man due to brain damage, we deserve to lose this war.

When are the people who murdered our soldiers, and recently shot and killed one of the Afghans inspecting the site, going to feel the "full force of the law", and not just "Oh well, Muslims will be Muslims."?
For all 0bamas talk about "leveling the playing field" this field is mighty slanted.

You are one pathetic president, Obama!
This is the opening he’s been praying five times a day for to put US troops under the jurisdiction of a UN tribunal.
Maybe he can host a beer summit with the Afghanis.

Did he give a “Shout Out” to the local SEIU thug and then declare it to be a workplace accident?

Here is how the Afghans found out about the koran burning last year in Florida.
From the WSJ:
"Most Afghans learned about the Quran burning in Florida only when Mr. Karzai on March 24 (4 days after!) condemned the act as "a crime against the religion and the entire Muslim nation," called on the U.S. and the U.N. to bring the perpetrators to justice and demanded "a satisfactory response to the resentment and anger of over 1.5 billion Muslims around the world."

You sir are a lying sack of crap.
When these animals were murdering Americans because a few of their hate/death books got burned you apologized to them not to the American families of the murdered.

I think, that as CreepInChief, he needs to take full responsibility for this. When may I hand him over to alqueda or the taliban?

(First amendment or reeducation camp?)
Has the name of the accused soldier been released yet?
Has his ethnicity been revealed yet?
Surely, the military has the right guy — he even turned himself in. There may or may not have been others involved, but there isn’t much question that the person they have -was- involved.
The press was hot to jump on the Abu Ghraib case, it was fast and furious back then — why not now?
Something’s funny here. Can’t say just what.

Vote him and his party out of office.
Then PRESSURE WHOEVER succeeds him to DO A REAL check into his background, find out if he is indeed foreign born, then throw his rotten butt in a Federal Prison or Guantanamo to MAKE SURE the bastard can’t run again.
If he is voted out this time, mark my words - HE WILL RUN AGAIN.

An excellent observation.
We haven't even managed to get to a trial for this murdering Islamist, one that is manifestly guilty of mass slaughter of American citizens on American soil.
My guess is that the Obamaites are making sure that Hasan doesn't go to trial any time before the election.
It is a dreadful symptom of the Obamaite extremism in the White House that our military cannot even start a trial of this disgusting murderer in less than 3 years.
Anyone notice how this sniveling buffoon was so quick to take credit for getting Obl. Bo also deserves equal credit for the killing of these civilians.
