    The Obama administration recently issued a report from the Defense Department on the Fort Hood shootings of last November. The report has sparked controversy in Washington. On Capitol Hill, Sens. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Sue Collins (R-Maine) are demanding more documents from the Pentagon. Lieberman chairs the Senate's Homeland Security Committee where Collins is the ranking member. Both senators sharply criticized the administration for its failure to turn over documents on the handling of Major Nidal Hasan. Lieberman and Collins are now issuing subpoenas to enforce their call for the documents. The Pentagon report on the Fort Hood shootings was...
  • DoD Not Hiding Fort Hood Shooting Details, Gates Says

    BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, April 16, 2010 – Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates today disputed claims that the Defense Department was withholding information from the Senate Homeland Security Committee about the Nov. 5 Fort Hood, Texas, shooting incident. “We have no interest in hiding anything,” said Gates, who earlier this week had traveled to Peru, Colombia and then Barbados to discuss regional security issues.“But what [is] most important,” Gates told reporters here, “is this prosecution, and we will cooperate with the committee in every way with that single caveat -- that whatever we provide does not impact the prosecution. That is the...

    After a week of anticipation, suspected Fort Hood gunman, Army Maj. Nidal M. Hasan is officially a resident of the Bell County Jail. Defense attorney John Galligan told News 10 that Hasan arrived at the Bell County Jail around 4 a.m. Friday. "His unit, the 21st Combat Aviation Brigade, provided the air assets to move Hasan to his pretrial confinement facility," Fort Hood officials said in a press release Friday morning. Galligan says Hasan's brother saw him in San Antonio at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and was given no notice that Hasan was going to be moved. Galligan did not know...
  • Fort Hood lawyer blogs again, despite gag order, on injustices in case against Major Nidal Hasan

    Following a two-week absence, the Fort Hood attorney was back at it Friday despite a gag order, blogging on the perceived injustices suffered by his defense team in defending Major Nidal Hasan, the man charged in the shooting deaths of 13 people. Galligan was put under partial gag order, but is adamant that his public comments don’t violate any ethical or legal rules. In the latest post, he argues that his client was denied a “mitigation expert” — a key part of defending someone charged with a capital crime. Galligan explained that in order to push for the death penalty,...

    I pretty much said what I had to say about the Fort Hood massacre in the first couple of weeks, because it was perfectly obvious within about 48 hours that 14 people (including an unborn child) had died so that "diversity" might live. As is the way, the official version is taking longer to catch up to what anyone not marinated in brain-eating PC mush could see from the get-go. The Boston Globe has a story on a new army report, unfortunately completed too late for last month's whitewash: An obvious “problem child’’ spouting extremist views, Hasan made numerous statements...

    WASHINGTON - Army superiors were warned about the radicalization of Major Nidal Malik Hasan years before he allegedly massacred 13 soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, but did not act in part because they valued the rare diversity of having a Muslim psychiatrist, military investigators wrote in previously undisclosed reports. An obvious “problem child’’ spouting extremist views, Hasan made numerous statements that were not protected by the First Amendment and were grounds for discharge by violating his military oath, investigators found. Examples of Hasan’s radical behavior have previously been disclosed in press accounts based on interviews with unnamed Army officials, including...

    The Constitution of the United States, Art. III, defines treason against the United States to consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, GIVING THEM AID OR COMFORT. This offense is punished with death. By the same article of the Constitution, no person shall be convicted of treason, unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.

    An Iraqi doctor encouraged security officers at Brooke Army Medical Center to shoot him earlier this month after telling others that he planned to free accused Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, a federal agent testified Monday. FBI counterterrorism and military intelligence operatives took a hard look at Senan Kahtan Abrahem after he went to Fort Sam Houston on Jan. 6 and approached an information booth at BAMC about seeing Hasan, according to testimony at a bail hearing Monday for Abrahem. Abrahem, an immigrant living in San Antonio, was indicted last week on a federal charge of making a...

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 22, 2010 – The Army will conduct a review to determine if leaders were negligent in their supervision of accused Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, Defense Department officials announced yesterday. Army Secretary John McHugh has directed Army Gen. Carter F. Ham, commander of U.S. Army Europe, “to conduct an accountability review to identify whether any personnel were responsible for failures or deficiencies in applying Army programs, policies, and procedures to the alleged assailant,” according to a Defense Department news release. McHugh also has tasked Ham to provide personal observations he may have developed as a senior...

    United Press International ^ | January 20, 2010 | Lawrence Sellin
    HELSINKI, Finland, Jan. 20 (UPI) -- U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan is suspected to have pulled the trigger, but it was the pervasive indifference and endemic political correctness of the Army's bureaucracy that loaded the weapons. In full reactive mode, the Army leadership produced a report of the Nov. 5 attack at Fort Hood, Texas, and is identifying scapegoats for the failure of policies they themselves established and encouraged. By punishing a few colonels and majors, the Army's generals and senior executives can again feel good about themselves knowing that, after 13 dead and 30 wounded, in the end...

    SNIPPET: "U.S. intelligence officials believe there are dozens -- perhaps hundreds - of Americans who have been in e-mail contact with the radical Yemeni cleric who is believed to have inspired and directed both the Fort Hood shooter and the failed Christmas Day airline bomber, the Investigative Project on Terrorism has learned. Efforts to learn the details of that communication, or even to target Anwar Al-Awlaki militarily, may be hindered by his status as an American citizen."
  • GOP rep.: Ft. Hood report 'sanitized'

    Politico ^ | January 18, 2010 | Jake Sherman
    The Pentagon’s 86-page report on the Fort Hood massacre was “sanitized” to avoid discussing Islamic terrorism, the congressman who represents the base told POLITICO Monday. The report, released last week, says that the Army’s middle management missed signals about Nidal Malik Hasan in the months leading up to the mass shooting. But missing from the report is any discussion of what Rep. John Carter (R-Texas) said was the a “crisis” with Islamic terrorism. Hasan allegedly wore ritual Muslim garb shouted “God is great” in Arabic when opening fire on a group of soldiers on the base — facts Carter said...

    It is pretty sad when the so called leaders of the greatest military force on the planet do not even have the guts to speak the truth. Especially when it is their fault that we lost 13 American soldiers because of politically correct policies. The Pentagon’s review on the Fort Hood shooting is nothing more than a whitewash of the Islamic factor in the attack and we will never win a war if we cannot even name the enemy. Military families should be outraged by this.

    On Friday, the Department of Defense released its report on the Fort Hood Massacre --"Protecting the Force: Lessons from Fort Hood." It is a disgraceful document. Indeed, Ralph Peters does not exaggerate when he says: Rarely in the course of human events has a report issued by any government agency been so cowardly and delusional. It's so inept, it doesn't even rise to cover-up level. The report attributes the fact that the military did not identify the threat posed by the Nidal Hasan -- it calls him "the alleged perpetrator" -- to bureaucratic shortcomings in the acquisition and sharing of...

    Fear of offending Muslims or being insensitive to religion was likely a key factor to why Army supervisors missed signs that the suspect in the deadly Fort Hood shooting rampage was a Muslim extremist, according to national security experts. Senior Pentagon officials last week sought to play down or sidestep questions about why Army supervisors and FBI counterterrorism officials missed warning signs or failed to take action against Army Maj. Nidal Hasan before the Nov. 5 attack, which killed 13 people — all but one them soldiers. Rep. Ike Skelton, Missouri Democrat and chairman of the House Armed Services Committee,...

    Pentagon Whitewash [Bill Bennett] There are devastating and important things happening in the news. Lest we forget, though: We are still in a war against Islamic Terrorism. And it still happens in America. November is not so far away that it deserves forgetting or whitewashing: An Arab terrorist named Nidal Hasan went to a health-care center, in a fort — at an Army base — in Texas, and opened fire killing 14 people while he shouted "Allahu Akbar." But you would not know this if you read the Pentagon Report on the massacre released Friday. Titled, "Protecting the Force: Lessons...

    There are two basic problems with the grotesque non-report on the Islamist- terror massacre at Fort Hood (released by the Defense Department yesterday): * It's not about what happened at Fort Hood. * It avoids entirely the issue of why it happened. Rarely in the course of human events has a report issued by any government agency been so cowardly and delusional. It's so inept, it doesn't even rise to cover-up level. "Protecting the Force: Lessons From Fort Hood" never mentions Islamist terror. Its 86 mind-numbing pages treat "the alleged perpetrator," Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, as just another workplace shooter...

    Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Friday an investigation into the Fort Hood shootings found the military isn't sufficiently prepared to prevent similar attacks in the future. Commanders must be encouraged to intervene if they think someone within the ranks is a threat, Gates said. He directed Army Secretary John McHugh to make changes and expects new policies to be in place by summer. As many as eight Army officers could face discipline for failing to do anything when the alleged shooter in the Fort Hood rampage displayed erratic behavior early in his military career... Gates did say the review shows...
