    Washington Post ^ | February 6, 2015 | By Dan Lamothe
    Army Secretary John McHugh said Friday that he has approved awarding the Purple Heart and its civilian counterpart to those wounded during a mass shooting at Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009, following years of pressure from families and a change in rules approved by Congress. The Nov. 5, 2009, shooting killed 13 people and wounded more than 30. It was carried out by Maj. Nidal Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, who was convicted in August 2013 of 13 counts of murder and 32 counts of attempted murder. Hasan said he acted because of what he alleged was U.S. aggression against Muslims...

Hear from the victims themselves in the season two premiere of TheBlaze TV's For The Record, Wednesday at 8 p.m. Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!” Army Maj. Nidal Hasan’s words hung in the air along with the smell of gunpowder from his semi-automatic pistol.

    Security: As the usual suspects call for stricter gun control, the fact remains that a gunman with two prior gun-crime arrests entered a secure military facility with a stolen ID and found no one able to shoot back. It was Fort Hood all over again. Aaron Alexis, a gunman whose prior behavioral warning signs were ignored, opens fire in an installation belonging to the most powerful military on Earth and those who protect our nation and design our weapons are not allowed to have a weapon to defend themselves. He was more equipped than the 12 people he killed on...

    Wielding a high-powered pistol and crying “Allahu akbar!”, (Major Nidal Hasan) shot dead 13 people and wounded 32 others at the Fort Hood military base in Killeen, Texas, on 5 November 2009. Hasan, who proudly admits to carrying out the attack, is due to stand trial from Tuesday for 13 counts of murder and 32 of attempted murder. He faces a potential death sentence. Survivors, however, remain furious that even as he grew more openly radicalized, Hasan was left untroubled by military authorities who have still not been held to account for failing to prevent his massacre. Despite warning classmates...

    ( - Political commentator Charles Krauthammer said the record of outgoing Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was that "the underwear didn't explode." When discussing the announcement of Napolitano’s resignation on Special Report with Bret Baier on Fox News on Friday, political analyst for Fox News Juan Williams offered a defense for her tenure: “Can I just offer one contrary note, which is under her tenure we've had no attacks, we've been safe as Americans— "Fort Hood," Bret Baier interrupted. "We've had no attacks--I mean she has managed this, to me, very well,” Williams said. “They're now looking at...

    The Article 32 proceeding (the military equivalent of a grand jury investigation in anticipation of an indictment) is underway for Maj. Nidal Hasan. You’ll recall him as the jihadist the military won’t call a jihadist, having assiduously averted its eyes from the fact that he was a jihadist before his terrorist murder of 13 American soldiers and wounding of numerous others — acts the military, taking its cue from the commander-in-chief, will not refer to as terrorism. From the Associated Press report on yesterday’s hearing [thanks to Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch] comes this mind-blowing detail, buried at the bottom...

    WASHINGTON — An earmark placed in a war spending bill by a Texas Democrat would provide a processing center for Fort Hood soldiers preparing for overseas duty, replacing the one that became the site of a lone gunman's rampage last year. The Nov. 5 shooting left 12 soldiers and a civilian dead and 32 people wounded before police felled the alleged gunman. “We will never forget that tragic day or those who give so much every day to defend our nation,” said Rep. Chet Edwards, D-Waco. But Edwards said “it would not be right to ask Fort Hood soldiers deploying...

    In his most recent interview with an Al Qaeda media outlet terrorist “Anwar Al Awlaki” the US born Al Qaeda terrorist said that he stopped his communications when he read in the Washington Post that he is being tracked by US intelligence. He said that once he stopped his communications he left the area in Yemen where he was hiding and then this area was bombed by US airstrikes. He also said that both terrorists “Nidal Hassan” who killed 13 of our troops at Fort Hood and “Omar Farouk Abd Al Moutaleb” who had the failed terrorist attack on the...
  • ‘Access to Guns,’ Not Jihad, to Blame for Ft. Hood, Says Noted Islamic Scholar (barf alert)

    Imam Zaid Shakir came to speak at my school, Claremont McKenna, on December 9th to respond to the “tragedy of Ft. Hood.” Rather than respond to the massacre of American servicemen, Shakir spent the evening indicting the United States – saying “we were born in genocide.” The reason for the Ft. Hood Massacre, according to Shakir? Not jihad or Islamic fundamentalism, but the “pervasiveness of violence in our society” and because of Americans’ “easy access to guns.” Zaid Shakir – Final [1] from The Claremont Conservative [2] on Vimeo [3]. For those wondering who Mr. Shakir is, he’s the go-to...

    Security: Two of the four leaders allegedly behind the attempted destruction of Flight 253 were released from Guantanamo two years ago. The case for indefinite detention has been made once again, and not in Illinois. Sometimes America's chickens do come home to roost. In a statement released Monday, al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, which counts among its leadership two former Guantanamo detainees, claimed responsibility for the attempted destruction of Northwest Airlines Flight 253. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the crotch bomber, told FBI agents he was trained for his Christmas Day mission in Yemen by top leaders of the group who provided...

    Since the moment cable news anchors first announced the name of the shooter at Fort Hood military base in Texas, there's been a clear and ever-growing undercurrent to coverage of Major Nidal Hasan's crime. Is there a threat of home-grown terrorism in America? Hasan, after all, was deeply troubled by America's two wars in Muslim nations. He exchanged e-mails with Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born imam living in Yemen with ties to al-Qaeda. Could there be more Hasans? In recent days, pundits have been consumed with the question of whether the shooting qualifies as terrorism. Whether Hasan is a Muslim whose...

    Finger-pointing erupted between federal agencies Tuesday over Fort Hood shooting suspect Nidal Hasan. Government officials said a Defense Department terrorism investigator looked into Hasan's contacts with a radical imam months ago, but a military official denied prior knowledge of the Army psychiatrist's contacts with any Muslim extremists. The two government officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case on the record, said the Washington-based joint terrorism task force overseen by the FBI was notified of communications between Hasan and a radical imam overseas, and the information was turned over to a Defense Criminal...

He makes a phone call or whatever, according to Reuters right now. Apparently he tried to contact al Qaeda. Is that the point at which you say, ‘This guy is dangerous?' That's not a crime to call up al Qaeda, is it? Is it? I mean, where do you stop the guy?" [VIDEO AT SITE]I love it how Dr. Jasser is trying to...

    Mohammed Atta and his federal loan officer No matter how dumb he was, officialdom was always dumber When last in this space, 10 days ago, I was writing about whether political correctness kills. This was apropos the 9/11 nutters: "Everything they did stuck out. But it didn't matter. Because the more they stuck out, the more everyone who mattered was trained to look the other way." I didn't know the half of it. The other day, Johnelle Bryant, an official with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, gave an interview to ABC News in which she revealed that Mohammed Atta and...

    Of all the things that might give you comfort in the wake of Nidal Malik Hasan's murderous rampage, where would you rate the news that the military's commitment to "diversity" endures? Down there, dare I guess? Ah, but you're probably not part of the MSM elite. Chrystia Freeland is. And on today's Morning Joe, the Financial Times editor did indeed announce that she was "comforted" by that very fact of the military's unflagging devotion to diversity. Joe Scarborough countered Chrystia with a tough question. And--sacré bleu!--Mike Barnicle, not normally an NB fave, made some very blunt and on-target observations ....

    FALLS CHURCH, Va. - A Muslim imam who once preached at a suburban Washington mosque and befriended several 9/11 hijackers appeared to gloat about Army Maj. Nidal Hasan's killing spree at Fort Hood on his blog Monday. Hasan reportedly attended services in 2001 at the massive Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Virginia -- and his mother's funeral service was held there that year at a time when Anwar al-Awlaki was its imam. A message posted on Awlaki's blog was titled, "Nidal Hassan Did the Right Thing." "Nidal Hassan is a hero," Awlaki wrote. "He is a man of conscience who could...
