Call for calm after US military base killings (Obama says don't jump to conclusions...)
Financial Times ^ | 6 Nov 09 | Sheila McNulty and Harvey Morris

Posted on 11/06/2009 5:18:53 PM PST by SkyPilot

Barack Obama cautioned a stunned public on Friday against drawing quick conclusions on a shooting rampage by an officer at a Texas military base that killed 13 people.

The president made the comments as the commander of Fort Hood, the US’s largest base for deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, quoted witnesses as saying the suspected gunman, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, shouted the Muslim declaration “Allahu Akbar” – God is great – as he opened fire. Speaking at the White House, Mr Obama said: “We don’t know all the answers yet, and I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts.”

I think we can figure out how the Zero wants to spin this so as to placate his fellow Muslims and the European elite.

I also heard that Pres Obama doesn't understand how someone could commit an act like this and wants to know what could lead someone to take this action.

I think he should ask his buddy Bill Ayers.

My kind of post. What does one not understand with this analogy. A “duck” test is a great way to cut though the crap. No PC, just the facts.

well it wasn’t true then, it isn’t true now and I wouldn’t go on a plane with one, be friends with one and if a mosque dared to open in my town i’d go down and night and spray bacon grease on the WHOLE damned place!

Crap, does this mean he will not be trying to understand the true cost of war before making a decision on Afghanistan?

I haven't heard anything about the other suspects other than they were released. But then...Hasan used to be dead. Who knows?

But what I'd like to know is what was Hasan's purpose in trying to proselytize to his patients? Was he looking for potentially disgruntled, angry US soldiers to convert into Jihadis or what?

I've heard of shrinks occasionally having inappropriate sexual relationships with patients but I've never heard them trying to convert them to a religious group.

A basic tenant of their “ faith” is to kill you if you don’t buy their crap. It is important to know that “dereliction of duty”can get you hanged in our history. To let this moslem in OUR military was CRIMINAL DERELICTION. 13 dead and 31 wounded would now agree!!!!!

Yup, My conclusion on Zero was already reached before this happened, and it wasn’t “jumped to” His every damn action has helped me reach it.

We are smart enough to draw our own conclusions without the input of the teleprompter readers in the media or the white house. These soldiers were murdered by a moslum coward who committed this heinous act in the name of his filthy religion.

“Call for calm after US military base killings (Obama says don’t jump to conclusions...”

Barry O: “The Military acted Stupidly”

It’s astounding the cartwheels the media is doing to ignore the elephant in the living room. This SOB, through his religion, (death cult) executed soldiers because he feared they would be fighting his spiritual brothers. He “was scared to death” of deploying not from fear but from the disdain he had of being part of a military fighting his Islamic brethren.

He’s nothing but a murdering, scumbag jihadi.

He could have simply went AWOL if he didn’t want to deploy. This is why that angle is total BS.

You know... Hasan and Hussein are muslim brothers. One attacks the military while the other facilitates its defeat.... Traitors....

zero may as well just satisfy his urge and go get a photo op with Hasan, his muzzie brother.

Somehow I doubt that he’ll want a photo op with the caskets of these dead. He wants this off the public stage asap.

“These American terrorist and their sympathizers(which there are far more than anyone wants to believe) need to start getting a taste of their own medicine...”

I agree completely...except for one small point...we don’t deal in their kind of “medicine.” These cowards never fight a pitched battle. Its about time they got a taste of what the Germany/Spain/Mexico/Britain experienced in times past. American fury.

In the future we need to follow Israel’s lead...it is imperative that we allow our servicemen/women to carry their weapons at all times. If you’re in uniform(and truth be told, even if you aren’t you should be carrying your sidearm) then you need to be armed, plain and simple.

They were released, not provably involved based on what’s known thus far. The investigation continues.

Why can’t the O just call the attack what it was?

He said he'd stand with the Muslims, remember?

Hasan is on a ventilator, comatose. Pull the plug on the bastard. If it’s good enough for Terri Schiavo, it’s too good for Hasan. I don’t want to pay for his medical care.

I think we need an amendment to Pelosi’s bill requiring that all life preserving methods be withdrawn from jihadists and terrorists in custody.

LET HIM DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Obozo’s acting “stupidly” again. Just like when he jumped to conclusions about the Cambridge police and that race-baiter Gates.

Exactly!

Obama should just pretend that a white cop arrested his buddy and then we’ll see some real righteous presidential anger.

Until then, Obama will just sit on his hands, whether it’s Iranians being shot in their streets or US servicemen being gunned down on US soil.

FYBHO!

As time goes by the conclusion becomes inescapable that McCain lost on purpose. How else can you explain losing an election to someone so far left as this? So un-American? So anti-America?

And that's EXACTLY the conclusion our Muslim Coward President Obama wants you NOT to "jump to", since it will reflect poorly on his filthy religion.

Not so fast. He's showing improvement. Two days ago, he was dead for 8 hours.

Besides, I don't want this guy dying until he sits up and tells the feckless media and this president what the rest of America already knows..."Hell yes I'm a jihadist, Allah be praised." Without that, their PC spin will become the historical record.

Then he can die.
