The excuses for this jihadii are already coming from the sympathetic left. Then, there’s the Obama-Left:
“Behavior of this sort is a regular occurrence in the US Armed Forces. However killing themselves, although it happens from time to time, is unusual. It is normally friendly troops, villages of indigenous peoples or schools, and wedding parties!
All over the Net sympathetic words provide a rationale for the murderer — it was the wartime horror stories he heard from his patients that set him off — someone keyed “Allah” into his car (not this bogus trick again?) — because of his ethnicity — because someone called him a “camel jockey.” Everything but poor potty training.
All this stuff comes from a phone call from an alleged cousin, and none of it is a defense for his atrocities.
According to his aunt, Noel Hasan of Falls Church, Va, Hasan was a devout Muslim who prayed every day at the Muslim Community Center in Silver Spring, Md. Hasan “did not make many friends” and “did not make friends fast,” his aunt said. “He had no girlfriend and was not married. He steered clear of female colleagues.”
Faizul Khan, the former imam at the center said, “He came to mosque one or two times to see if there were any suitable girls to marry.” Khan said. “I don’t think he ever had a match, because he had too many conditions. He wanted a girl who was very religious, prays five times a day.
Ironically, Hasan was brought down by a female police sergeant, Kim Munley. She was wounded by Hasan in an exchange of gunfire, but she got the bastard.
Atlas Shrugs is reporting that civilian police Sgt. Kimberly Munley and her partner responded within three minutes of reported gunfire Thursday afternoon, Lt. Gen. Bob Cone said Friday.
Munley, who had been trained in active-response tactics, rushed into the building and confronted the shooter as he was turning a corner, Cone said. (Fox News says Hasan was shot him 4 times)
“It was an amazing and an aggressive performance by this police officer,” Cone said.
Munley was only a few feet from crazed Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan when she opened fire.
On the other hand, Col. Terry Lee (ret) who worked with Hasan quoted Hasan as saying, “Muslims should stand up against the aggressor,” and also said Hasan often verbalized his opposition to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Lee told Fox News that Hasan, “was hoping that President Obama would pull troops out. … When things weren’t going that way, he became more agitated, more frustrated with the conflicts over there … he made his views well known about how he felt about the U.S. involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.”
“He said Muslims shouldn’t be fighting Muslims,” he added. “He was very clear on that.”
This guy has a history. The AP is reporting that federal law enforcement officials say Hasan had come to their attention at least six months ago because of Internet postings he made. These postings related to suicide bombings and other threats. The Feds say an official investigation was not opened.
Hasan was listed as a participant in a Homeland Security Policy Institute’s Presidential Transition Task Force last year. Hasan applied on the institute’s website to attend the meeting and was accepted because of his professional credentials. He participated in disaster preparation — he knew the drill. Here, he’s listed on a page with the ironic title, “Thinking Anew — Security Priorities For The Next Administration.”
I have a security priority — keep Muslims out of the military. There’s plenty of Arab-speaking Christians in the country that can serve as translators. This episode is unsettling for a number of reasons, but most of all because it exposes the fact that political correctness has forced military commanders to ignore the presence of radical, anti-American Muslims in the ranks.
Hasan was a psychiatrist. The United States Army provided him that education. He gladly took that education, but when it came time for him to do his duty he murdered 13 human beings and wounded 30 more.
The above is a snapshot from a video obtained from the owner of a 7-Eleven at Fort Hood. He said Hasan — whom he knows as “Major Nidal” — came in for coffee and hash browns most mornings, including the morning of the shootings. The surveillance video shows Hasan at the cashier’s counter at about 6:20 a.m. — on his way home from morning prayers. He was carrying a beverage and dressed in traditional Arab garb.
He went home, prepared his weapons, changed into his Army uniform, and about seven hours later, began his assault on the unarmed and defenseless soldiers — several of whom he shot in the back.
This was premeditated, up-close murder. He took the time to load several magazines. The weapons he used accommodated 13 rounds — he had two of them. He would have to reload. He gave his furniture to his neighbors. He handed out copies of the Quran. He took the time to put on his uniform. He took the time to drive, with his personal weapons to Ft. Hood. He had time to make a U-turn. He murdered those poor souls up close, and personal, inside buildings where they had nowhere to go. Soldiers who witnessed the shooting rampage at Fort Hood that left 13 people dead reported that the gunman shouted “Allahu Akbar!” — Arabic for “God is great!” — before opening fire, the base commander said Friday. Fox News is reporting that Hasan jumped up on a table and was shooting down at his victims — some he shot multiple times. One of the soldiers said he was laying on the floor for cover, when Hasan shot him from 5 feet away.
This is treason. It was a slaughter. It was jihad, plain and simple — just another example of Sudden Jihad Syndrome.
Right now Hasan is on a ventilator in a local civilian hospital under military and civilian guard. I sure hope they are withholding any and all pain medication.
The only logical and reasonable end to this horrible incident, the largest act of terror since 9/11, is to put this son-of-a-bitch up against the wall, and give him what he gave.
But you watch all the apologists from the Left — they’ll plead for mercy — we will be told that this was the act of a lone gunman. It says nothing about any religion. We will be told about thousands of Muslims who do not believe that randomly killing innocent people leads to paradise.
And this morning, the military-loathing Obama, showing no emotion, said, “blah, blah, blah, . . . don’t jump to conclusions . . . blah, blah, blah,” and ran and hid in the White House, taking no questions from the press.
