    FORT HOOD, Texas -Three young soldiers showed no fear and didn't try to hide in the face of certain death as a lone gunman approached them during a deadly shooting rampage at Fort Hood, a civilian nurse testified at a military hearing Tuesday. "All three of these kids just stood their ground. They didn't flinch. They weren't afraid of him," Theodore Coukoulis told the Article 32 hearing. "All three looked directly at the shooter. They were looking at death and they knew it." Coukoulis, who was working in the Fort Hood medical building Nov. 5, said all three died in...

    FORT HOOD, Texas — A pregnant soldier shot during a rampage at a Texas Army post last year cried out, "My baby! My baby!" as others crawled under desks, dodged bullets that pierced walls and rushed to help their bleeding comrades, a military court heard Monday. A soldier had just told Spc. Jonathan Sims that she was expecting a baby and was preparing to go home, when the first volley of gunfire rang out Nov. 5 in a Fort Hood building where soldiers get medical tests before and after deploying.

    FORT HOOD, Texas – A soldier who recorded the terror of last year's deadly shooting rampage in Fort Hood using his cell phone was ordered by an officer to delete both videos, a military court heard Friday. Under cross examination, Pfc. Lance Aviles told an Article 32 hearing that his noncommissioned officer ordered him to destroy the two videos on Nov. 5, the same day that a gunman unleashed a volley of bullets inside a processing center at the Texas Army post. The footage could have been vital evidence at the military hearing to decide if Maj. Nidal Hasan should...

    The pop-pop-pop of gunfire, groans of a dying soldier and wailing from terrified survivors riveted a military courtroom Wednesday as Army prosecutors played a 911 tape of last November's massacre at a soldier-readiness center. Eight witnesses gave graphic descriptions of the chaos unleashed when Army Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire in the worst attack ever on an American military installation. Several recalled hearing a shout of "Allahu akbar," or "God is great," just before the melee began. "I looked at [Hasan] and was wondering, 'Why would he say Allahu akbar?' " testified the first prosecution witness, Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford....

    Washington — Alma Nemelka said her nephew was the first to die. He was standing at the rear of the Soldier Readiness Center at Ft. Hood, Texas, when an Army officer burst in shouting, "Allahu akbar!'' Pfc. Aaron Thomas Nemelka, 19 and soon to be deployed to the Middle East, was shot in the head. On Tuesday, the man accused of killing Nemelka and 12 others, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan of the Army Medical Corps, will appear for his first broad military hearing into the November attack.

    ...Defense attorney John Galligan wants next month's Article 32 hearing for Maj. Nidal Hasan (nih-DAHL' hah-SAHN') closed to the public, including the media and victims' relatives. An Article 32 hearing is similar to a civilian grand jury proceeding. ... Galligan says he's worried about Hasan's ability to get a fair trial if the Article 32 hearing set for Oct. 12 is kept open. Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the Nov. 5 shootings in a building on the Texas Army post.

    Last Sunday, this column accused much of the national TV news media of pandering to the bad guys, especially to Islamist radicals and Muslim mass-murderers to whom the M-word — murder — is never attached. Absurdly discreet, delicate phrasing and politely vague references, I wrote, replace words that speak cold facts. The very next morning, this past Monday, CNN presented an opportunity to judge for yourself: On Nov. 5, 2009, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, a US Army psychiatrist stationed at Ft. Hood, Texas, went on a shooting rampage that left 13 murdered and 30 wounded. Hasan was shot and paralyzed.
  • Islamic extremists in the workplace--Defense Secretary Gates ignores the homegrown Muslim threat

    The Washington Times ^ | August 26, 2010 | Editorial
    Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan killed 14 and wounded 30 in his jihad at Fort Hood in November. According to the Defense Department, the incident wasn't a terrorist attack but merely a case of workplace violence. This is typical of government efforts to paper over the growing domestic Muslim threat. On Aug. 18, Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates released the final Fort Hood follow-on review, in which he proposed initiatives to "mitigate internal threats, ensure force protection, enable emergency response and provide care for victims and families." Radical Islam is nowhere to be found. Some passages hint at the nature...

    As he sits in the Bell County Jail, accused of the Nov. 5 Fort Hood shooting that left 13 dead, Maj. Nidal Hasan continues to receive his monthly U.S. Army paycheck, which based on his rank and experience is probably more than $6,000. That's standard procedure for soldiers who are confined before military trial, according to Army officials. But Hasan, charged with a shooting spree that shocked the country, is not a standard defendant. And he's having a hard time finding a bank to take his money. According to his civilian attorney John Galligan , Bank of America notified Hasan...

    FORT GORDON, Ga. (AP) -- A civilian pretending to be a soldier convinced an Army officer to give him a sophisticated laser sight for military rifles before he was caught hours later on the base with a land mine, several grenades and night vision devices, prosecutors said Wednesday. Federal prosecutors said in a criminal complaint that Anthony Todd Saxon, 34, falsely pretended to be an Army master sergeant on Tuesday and sought to steal the infrared laser targeting sight.

    Early next month military attorneys will meet for a preliminary hearing into whether the 40-year-old Muslim who became an Army psychiatrist should be court-martialed and perhaps sentenced to die for the worst terrorist assault in this country since the Sept. 11, 2001, airplane attacks. The Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee has taken the unusual step of issuing subpoenas demanding the records as part of its investigation into the Nov. 5 shooting spree. What they want to know, said committee chairman Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), is "why was he not stopped before he took 13 American lives, and how can...

    A major question is swirling around the 13 US service personnel who were killed, and the 30 who were wounded in the Ft. Hood shooting in November. Central Texas Congressman John Carter (R-Tx), who represents Ft. Hood and Killeen, is introducing a measure in Congress to award the 43 victims of the shooting by Maj. Nadal Hasan the Purple Heart, and the benefits which come from being awarded the decoration. “All these things are already given to soldiers who are killed or injured in combat,” Carter said, “And I think they should be extended to those soldiers who were killed...

    A suspect accused of attempting to plant a bomb on New York's Times Square has ties with the Islamic preacher who inspired a US soldier to kill 12 comrades at Fort Hood and the Christmas Day would-be bomber. Faisal Shahzad, a Pakistani-born US citizen has told interrogators that he been inspired to take up the cause of al Qaeda and radical Islam by the internet messages of Anwar Al-Awlaki, a Yemen-based imam. Awlaki, who was born in America, was accused of grooming Nidal Hasan in a series of emails before the US soldier opened fire at the Texas military base...

    Last October, the Yemeni government came to the CIA with a request: Could the agency collect intelligence that might help target the network of a U.S.-born al-Qaida recruiter named Anwar al-Awlaki? What happened next is haunting, in light of subsequent events. The CIA concluded that it could not assist the Yemenis in locating al-Awlaki for a possible capture operation. The primary reason was that the agency lacked specific evidence that he threatened the lives of Americans — which is the threshold for any capture-or-kill operation against a U.S. citizen. The Yemenis also wanted U.S. Special Forces' help in pursuing al-Awlaki;...

    Major Update Below!As I posted yesterday, there was a disturbing blurb in a NY Times article that indicated Faisal Shahzad, the now infamous Times Square Bomber, was under surveillance as a potential terrorist during the Bush administration. George LaMonica, a 35-year-old computer consultant, said he bought his two-bedroom condominium in Norwalk, Conn., from Mr. Shahzad for $261,000 in May 2004. A few weeks after he moved in, Mr. LaMonica said, investigators from the national Joint Terrorism Task Force [JTTF] interviewed him, asking for details of the transaction and for information about Mr. Shahzad. It struck Mr. LaMonica as unusual, but...
