Fort Hood Muslim Terrorist was a known al Qaeda suspect – Why didn’t the US Army act months ago?

“U.S. intelligence agencies were aware months ago that Army Major Nidal Hasan was attempting to make contact with people associated with al Qaeda, two American officials briefed on classified material in the case told ABC News.”

…from ABC News Officials: U.S. Aware of Hasan Efforts to Contact al Qaeda

Why didn’t the US Army or Intelligence Agencies do something about Major Nidal Hasan?

Was it political correctness? Fear of making a decision? Whatever it was, it looks like some person or persons made a decision not to take steps to remove Major Hasan from the US Army even after it was known that he was contacting al Qaeda.

This should be a lesson to government authorities, law enforcement and military leadership everywhere in the West: If there are signs that a Muslim employee has gone fundamentalist, ACT to counter the threat!

    whose fault is homegrown terrorism?

    “Sudden Jihad syndrome”? That’s not very nice of you.

    I’m sure the majority of Muslims do not agree with this. The guy’s own family publicly denounced it.

    Have you heard about the shooting in Orlando. What do we call that? Sudden Postal syndrome? Why is that different than Texas? Both guys simply lost their minds.

    I think people need to focus on ANYONE that seems to want to do harm to others. There is a thin line here though…at what point do we impact our own freedoms?

    Hi DBE

    We never said that the majority of Muslims agreed with what he did. Apparently it is only 3 to 10 percent who agree with it. Maybe 100 million Muslims tops who believe that Muslims have a religious Allah-approved duty to murder infidels.

    Nothing to worry about old chap!

    Hi Kiki,

    Whose fault?

    I dunno. Maybe the guy who wrote “kill all infidels” or something.

    Nope, homegrown means it’s america’s fault, not the
    middle east, just like other shooters on a rampage.
    The knock on effect of war is that people disagree
    with it which becomes more obvious over time.

    Can we stop referring to the Army Major as a terrorist, please? What he did is no more terrorist than the subsequent shooting that occurred the following day in Orlando. For an act to be terrorism, or for someone to be terrorist, there should be a pre-determined motive of eliciting fear amoung a group of people. Simply going nuts and killing multiple persons because you disagree with their agenda does not a terrorist make. If that were the case, every mass murder or drug dealer would be considered a terrorist. As someone who lives in the US and has seen the substantial laxity of laws regarding citizen rights since 9/11, that last thing we need is a common crime being defined as an act of terrorism – and citizens shipped to Guantanamo (or its replacement)!

  7. I don’t really have much to say except to say, this is a good question:

    Why didn’t the US Army or Intelligence Agencies do something about Major Nidal Hasan?

    I am more concern about Barbados. Recently the Eygptian govenment of an overwhelmingly muslim country expressed concerns about its radicalisation as evident about the wearing of burqas.
    Walking around Barbados and you will seen a growing trend of indian women covered from head to toe in these black coats.
    Who is letting these people into the country?

    Hi BFP – Where did you even get that stat? That’s the biggest bunch of crap I’ve ever heard. You really think 3-10% of Muslims are out to get you?! You really think 100 million Muslims are happy with random violence? Even violence period?

    Hi Blackantz,
    First of all, they’re not “Burqas”. I don’t agree with covering the face as well but these people are harmless. Can you imagine how hard it is for these women to walk around and have everyone just stare at them?! They even get it from the Muslim community as well. What do you mean who’s letting “these” people into the country? What if they were born here and decided to put it on?

    Hi Blackantz,
    Islam is the religion of peace,love and mercy.When the Jews ,Christains and Muslims study their religion deeply they will conclude there is only one religion, one God and one human family.It is easy to jump on the Islamaphobic bandwagon.Think carefully.Islam is holding this world up.The followers of Jesus and Moses have gone astray from the teachings.People dress modestly to see the queen,but to worhip God the creator they walk in the church half nakid.They have lost the divine monitory apparatus,they do not know what is good and what is evil.We who are muslims believe in Adam Noah,Abraham,Ismael,Moses,David,Jesus and Muhammad.We believe the orders given to us by these prophets are from God and we try to follow them.
    Intellect is only the third level of consciousness.Become a believer and discover the other four.Barbados do not have a dress code i believe people can wear whatever they are comfortable wearing.God can take the country from you and give it to the muslim i you fail to behave as he has asked you to .
    Peace Mercy and love Gwen.

    Hi Rohan,
    In a democratic and free society the court of puplic opinion is reserved for politics.Let Nidal Hasan have his day in court.
    Nidal Hasan is an American,incidences like that are common in America no one blames the perpertrators religion.Why all this Islam and terrorism hogwash.Islam is the religion of peace,mercy and love.
    Read the HOLY BOOKS FOR WISDOM.

    Peace and love Gwen

  13. How radical muslims in the world?

    HOW MANY RADICAL MUSLIMS ARE THERE IN THE WORLD?

    Writing at the Weekly Standard, Robert Satloff takes apart a new book by John Esposito and Dalia Mogahed, both of them professional pro-Islam propagandists, published by the Gallup organization, where Mogehed is executive director of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies. Satloff shows how, through fraudulent definition of the word “radical,” the authors make it appear that a multi-year study of Muslim opinion worldwide showed that only seven percent of Muslims are radical, when, in reality, by any fair reading of the authors’ own polling data, the correct number is 37 percent.
    The authors define Muslim radicals as those who say the 9/11 attack was “completely justified,” which was seven percent of the sample. However, there were two other categories of respondents who said that the attack was at least partially justified, and they are labeled by the authors as “moderates.” The first of those groups comprises 6.5 percent of the sample, the second comprises 23.1 percent. Further, the respondents in that last category, making up 23.1 percent, also said that they hate America, want to impose Sharia law, support suicide bombing, and oppose equal rights for women. Yet Esposito and Mogahed call them “moderates.”

    7 plus 6.5 plus 23.1 equals 36.6 percent of 1.2 billion Muslims, or 439 million radical Muslims in the world. Just a tiny unrepresentative minority.
