  • Poor Decisions Haunting In Al-Awlaki Case

    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;...
  • Army: Not seeking death for Hasan

    But Hasan's attorney accuses Army of stonewalling BELTON, Texas (KXAN) - The U.S. Army said it is not actively seeking the death penalty against the man accused of the Fort Hood shooting in November. Yet, Maj. Nidal Hasan's attorney insists the Army is making every effort to have Hasan executed by lethal injection. Hasan has been at the Bell County Jail under 24-hour surveillance since April 9, and his attorney is pushing to have him moved to Fort Hood Medical Center because he said the jail isn’t equipped to deal with his medical needs. Hasan is paralyzed from being shot...

    The Obama administration said Tuesday it would provide more information to Congress about the Fort Hood shootings but continued to defy a subpoena request for witness statements and other documents. After days of negotiations, the Pentagon and Justice Department informed a Senate committee that they would not comply with congressional subpoenas to share investigative records from the Nov. 5 shootings at Fort Hood, Tex., which killed 13 people.

    The Wheeling News-Register and Intelligencer ^ | April 16, 2010 | The Editors
    We agree with Army officials that an investigation into the case of Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin was merited. At the same time we wonder whether the Pentagon has considered the clear inconsistency in its treatment of Lakin, compared to that of another officer last year. Lakin is being investigated for two reasons: First, he refused to report for duty in Afghanistan, as ordered. Second, he used the YouTube video sharing Web site to question whether President Barack Obama was born in the United States. Again, an investigation is appropriate. The military simply cannot tolerate troops who refuse to follow orders....

    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.

    A new Pentagon report into Major Nidal Hasan’s shooting rampage that killed 13 soldiers at Fort Hood on November 5, 2009, concluded that the existing Department of Defense safeguards were "unclear" or "inadequate" to identify the threat, according to NBC News, who obtained a copy of the report Thursday. The Department of Defense report detailed how the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force knew prior to the shooting that Hasan was communicating with an al Qaeda recruiter, but this information was not passed on to the Department of Defense. The report cited "inconsistent" coordination between the two agencies. The report also...

    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,...

    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...

    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...

AFP, Dec. 26: There was a suggestion of links between Abdulmutallab and radical US-born Yemeni cleric Anwar al-Aulaqi, who had contacts with the US army psychiatrist accused of gunning down 13 people at a Texas military base last month. "He may have been in contact with the American imam al-Aulaqi," Peter Hoekstra, the most senior Republican on the House Intelligence Committee and a member of Congress for Michigan, told AFP.

    A senior military official in Washington says the lead prosecutor in the Fort Hood shooting case will be a man who secured the death penalty in a similar case four years ago. The official told The Associated Press on Friday that Col. Michael Mulligan will head the prosecution of Maj. Nidal Hasan. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the investigation. Hasan is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the Nov. 5 Texas Army post shooting. Mulligan prosecuted a 2005 case in which Sgt....

Considering the condition of most of the media in this country, I can't say I'm surprised at their reaction to the murder of 13 and wounding of 30 soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas. They are trying to blame Maj. Nadal Malik Hasan's terrorist act on the stress of being in the Army and harassment by other soldiers because of his religion. In other words, trying to blame it on anything besides what it is. The fact is that he is a radical Muslim who hates the United States...

    It's both amusing and educational to observe a consensus when it suddenly starts to give way at all points without yielding an inch. A couple of weeks ago, the consoling view was that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan was a man more to be pitied than feared, a full-blown officer in the U.S. armed forces who was too shaken up by the stories of returned veterans to be able to function properly, and a physician too stressed-out to bear in mind that there was such a thing as a Hippocratic oath. Why, even the FBI had interpreted his e-mails to Anwar...

    A homegrown U.S. soldier-jihadist, having never served overseas, slaughters unarmed members of the U.S. military on American soil, and his act is foolishly excused by some as “secondary post-traumatic stress disorder.” Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp detainees responsible for 9/11 are being moved to New York for trial. As U.S. soldiers risk their lives in Afghanistan, our leaders struggle with the political consequences of their commanders’ recommendations. The war on terror is spoken of no more.

    Judging from the way his critics have been going on, I would say that Tunku Varadarajan was on to something in his Forbes column "Going Muslim." The reaction to his important and well-reasoned article ironically confirms and further underlines his central point; namely, that out of political correctness we refuse to see and act on the obvious--the implication of Islamist ideology in violent acts such as the murders perpetrated by Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan. Instead of addressing the substance of Mr. Varadarajan's arguments, the self-appointed spokespersons for Islam turn the whole discussion around and present Muslims as the victims of...

    As Sen. Joe Lieberman, Connecticut independent, officially begins his inquiry this week into the disturbing failures that enabled Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan to stay in uniform, it must go beyond the normal excuses related to bureaucratic bungling. With the discussion this week devolving into interagency finger-pointing, lost has been the simple fact that the failures were systemic. Although the military has done valiant work fighting in Muslim lands, it doesn't seem to grasp how to assess when Muslim personnel could pose an internal threat. It's easy to rely on hindsight to second-guess after the fact, but based...

"There were such clear, obvious, massive warning signs that were missed," she said. "This terrorist, even having business cards" that identified him as an "SoA" or soldier of Allah.

    As more information trickles out regarding the cold-blooded, terrorist killing of 12 US Army Soldiers and one civilian and the wounding of dozens more at Fort Hood by US Army Major Nidal Hasan, it is becoming increasingly clear that the insidious disease of political correctness that has erased our borders, diluted our language and stagnated our culture is one of the major contributing factors to this terrorist rampage. Reflecting back at us in the many pools of blood spilled that day is the chilling reality that political correctness has also been infecting the nation’s law enforcement agencies and armed forces,...

    Shouting: “Allahu Akbar!” while shooting unarmed, unsuspecting victims doesn’t tell the world much more than that the shouter is likely Moslem. President Obama asked us not to jump to conclusions, safe advice now and good advice generally. We have two choices at Fort Hood: we can suppose the shooter is an Islamic terrorist or that he is a nut. (Of course, he could be both.) If he is a terrorist, he could be acting on his own or as part of an organization. That seems the more significant question. We get murderers acting on their own on a regular basis,...

    The jihadi movement has never made any bones about the fact that it intends to destroy western civilization from within using the West's own principles as weapons against it.

But this effort isn't even necessary when, in the U.S. for instance, a large part of the political class cannot even agree upon what the word "sacrifice" means for its own, much less find themselves able to define the terms of enemies to their...

His mother's funeral was held there in May that year.
