  • Hyping a phantom "backlash"

    Nearly a week after the Fort Hood massacre, the anti- Muslim backlash that our leaders and some in the media feared remains a no-show. No mobs of braying bigots marching on mosques; no calls for banning Muslims from the military; no anti-Muslim legislation being drafted in Congress or state capitals; no spate of attacks on Muslim students, shop owners, or neighborhoods. What happened? What's holding the angry, red-blooded vigilantes in check? Why, if this keeps up, we might have to conclude that the United States is a remarkably fair-minded society as opposed to the cauldron of seething prejudice that many...

    The lightly-built police heroine who is credited with halting the Fort Hood massacre almost died at the scene after losing half the blood in her body. Mother of one Sergeant Kimberley Munley confronted gunman Nidal Malik Hasan and, despite being wounded in both legs, brought him down with four shots. One of the shots cut an artery in her leg, leaving blood pumping out but she still managed to keep firing before collapsing. Heroine: Kim Munley, a civilian police officer, is the woman who brought Hasan down by shooting him four times before he could slaughter more people. Medic Francisco...
  • Fort Hood Attack Was Terrorism – By Dick Morris

    In his nationally televised remarks following the horrendous killings at Ft. Hood, President Obama never mentioned the T word. The attack was an act “of violence.” No mention of terrorism. In fact, the Ft. Hood shooting is the first terror attack on American soil since 9-11. But Obama, reluctant to take the rap for inadequate protections against such attacks, is doing everything he can to make it look like an adult version of the Columbine school shootings. We are treated to stories about the killer’s dread of being sent back to Afghanistan and his deformed personality. But, the fact is...

John Murtha (D-Penn.) said he had visited the medical processing center at Fort Hood, Texas, that was the scene of the sporadic shooting earlier this week and could see how it would be vulnerable to attack. “I was out at Fort Hood at that very location maybe six months ago and people were lined up and bunched up and I can see how it would be a target, and I can see how that many people could be hurt by one person,”...

    MORE THOUGHTS CONCERNING FT HOOD Maybe one of these days people will realize that hating one’s country, whether for religious reasons or otherwise, is more than adding another colour thread to society’s rich tapestry but wicked, warped, and very, very dangerous. --NINME, from Quote of the Day–So far via SondrakRemember Obama's Cairo apologia? He'd probably you just as soon forget what he said back in early June. "The attacks of September 11th, 2001 and the continued efforts of these extremists to engage in violence against civilians has led some in my country to view Islam as inevitably hostile not only...

    President Obama continues to urge Americans not to jump to conclusions when it come to the Fort Hood Islamist mass murderer Major Nidal Malik Hasan. At the same time the administration is trying to prevent informed conclusions from being developed. So far most of the information revealed about Hasan have been outed through anonymous leaks. For example reports of his Jihadist speeches to doctors at Walter Reed, and his contact with the terrorist advising Imam were both supplied by the UK Telegraph, and his out reach to al Qaeda was leaked to ABC. Rep. Pete Hoekstra is getting tired of...

    Join Obama in honoring the dead Editorial Board Monday, November 09, 2009 President Barack Obama will be front and center at Fort Hood today to honor those killed and wounded in last Thursday's attack on unarmed soldiers preparing to deploy. That's where the commander in chief ought to be, and those who perpetrate division, anger and suspicion should have enough respect for the dead, the wounded and their families to let up for a bit. The din that followed the Fort Hood shooting was to be expected. Criticism of the nation's leader is nothing new, but in the information age,...

    Why did the US military ignore the clear warning signs that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the suspected Ft. Hood shooter, had embraced radical Islam -- and thus become a danger to all around him? It wasn't an oversight, it was policy -- one the Pentagon has been doubling down on ever since 9/11. This summer, Hasan was overheard cheering the shooting death of a Little Rock Army recruiter by a Muslim. His patients complained about him proselytizing about Islam. He gave his nationality as "Palestinian" even though he was born in America. He apparently blogged about the glory of suicide...

    Major Nidal Malik Hasan, who killed 13 people at Fort Hood military base in Texas, awoke from a coma on Monday as it emerged he had tried to make contact with al-Qaeda before carrying out the massacre. Hasan, who was shot four times during his attack, has been informed by doctors that he killed 13 people and injured dozens more. FBI agents and military investigators were last night waiting to interview him. Intelligence officers are said to have known months ago about Hasan’s attempts to reach the terror network through the internet but decided to monitor him, hoping it would...

    By now, most of us are tired of the continuing litany of “let’s not judge” what happened at Fort Hood, and that Major Malik Nidal Hasan was simply mentally ill and stressed out because of his impending deployment. He, like a disgruntled employee, simply snapped. That is why it was so refreshing to hear Senator Joe Lieberman on Fox News Sunday, where the maverick Democrat now independent dissident dared to say that Hasan “reportedly showed signs of being a “self-radicalized, homegrown terrorist.’” There were indications, he noted, that Hasan “had turned to Islamist extremism” which should be investigated. If so,...

    Leaders of the vibrant Muslim community here expressed outrage on Friday at the shooting rampage being laid to one of their members, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who had become a regular attendee of prayers at the local mosque. But some of the men who had befriended Major Hasan at the mosque said the military should examine the policies that might have caused him to snap. “Ultimately it was Brother Nidal’s doing, but the command should be held accountable,” Mr. Benjamin said. “G.I.’s are like any equipment in the Army. When it breaks, those who were in charge of keeping it...

    Echoing my thoughts and I believe the thoughts of many Americans, Contentions' Jennifer Rubin responds to Army Chief of Staff General George Casey's "concern" about a "backlash" against Moslems in the U.s. military as a reult of the Fort Hood massacre: Casey should be concerned if his organization was asleep at the switch and fell victim to a political correctness that clouded common sense. We should be concerned that the head of the Army now seems nervous about candidly discussing what occurred. To be clear: it is the ultimate red herring, a straw man of gargantuan proportions, to suggest that those pointing to Hasan's...

His cousin, Mohammed, denied that there were "religious or national motives" behind the killings, and said the killer's relatives in the US were equally baffled as to what provoked the massacre.
