Scapegoats. Just CYA by the brass who should have been on the ball.
Maybe they’re just going to let the word get around. That is disgraceful.
...and if they singled out the muzzie as a potential terrorist they would have been punished worse for that.
You nailed it. It was a lose-lose situation, since the Commander-in-Chief is such a chickensh*t.
This is impossible because the MSM and Democrats claim at Congressional hearings today that there is no Jihad by Muslim Americans.
It was Obama himself who, after the "In the Name of Allah" shooting said: "Let's not come to any conclusions".
Enough with the PC. MUSLIM is not a religion...It is a political system aimed at world domination and total servitude.
Their cry is STILL: "Kill all the Christians and Jews".
It is a CYA and cover up. Congress, if they had any guts or principles,would hold the bastard who occupies the White House responsible.
Bush would have been the SAME way. Remember US Army COS “General” Casey is a BUSH appointee.
Just look at the Rep. Peter King's hearings on Muslim radicalism and the uproar over just discussing the problem!
Please support these Officers with prayer and phone calls to your congressmen!!
They would have been punished for “diversity” crimes had they called attention to Hassan before the shooting.
“Our diversity, not only in our Army, but in our country, is a strength. And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse.”
- Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey
They are being punished for being too PC, while a president who refuses to accept that muslims want to kill Americans is commander-in-chief of the military. Go figure.
They were screwed either way.
The Navy has more of a record of making scapegoats out of heroes. The Army is more prone to cover up and watch out for their own. Any good officer of any branch would have acted like LTC Oliver North, and would have at least covered his ass with paper and reported that Muslim didn’t seem right.
Republicans need to have a congressional investigation into this obvious cover-up. I’m not holding my breath until that happens though.
You left out the i (sarc)
“The Navy has more of a record of making scapegoats out of heroes” I actually AGREE with you on this(think USS Indianapolis/WW II).
It’ll be interesting to hear their side of the story. Somehow, I’m thinking some of them wanted to elevate this issue, but were rebuffed in the name of multiculturalism.
If that’s the case, I so hope it’ll come to light.
