Ft. Hood Massacre: Obama Confronted By SECOND Successful Domestic Terrorist Attack

Update, November 9: First of all, the body count should be updated to fourteen, as a pregnant woman was killed, and her baby died with her.

Second, we now have confirmation that Major Nidal Hasan was attempting to contact the terrorist organization al-Qaeda.  Just in case anyone was still wondering whether this guy was a terrorist.

Ft. Hood, Texas: a Muslim terrorist murdered 13 and wounded 31 unarmed soldiers today.

The moment I heard about this attack, I said to the group I was with, “You watch: the killers are going to be Muslims, and we’re going to be assured they aren’t terrorists.”  And other than the fact that I thought there was more than one shooter, I was pretty much right as rain.

We find out that the guy had his “Islam” issues”:

At least six months ago, Hasan came to the attention of law enforcement officials because of Internet postings about suicide bombings and other threats, including posts that equated suicide bombers to soldiers who throw themselves on a grenade to save the lives of their comrades.

They had not determined for certain whether Hasan is the author of the posting, and a formal investigation had not been opened before the shooting, said law enforcement officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss the case.

One of the officials said late Thursday that federal search warrants were being drawn up to authorize the seizure of Hasan’s computer.

Retired Army Col. Terry Lee, who said he worked with Hasan, told Fox News that Hasan had hoped President Barack Obama would pull troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq. Lee said Hasan got into frequent arguments with others in the military who supported the wars, and had tried hard to prevent his pending deployment.

Hasan attended prayers regularly when he lived outside Washington, often in his Army uniform, said Faizul Khan, a former imam at a mosque Hasan attended in Silver Spring, Md. He said Hasan was a lifelong Muslim.

There is video of Hasan earlier in the day wearing Muslim dress.

Hasan was “hoping” for Obama’s “change,” and apparently couldn’t wait for Obama to deliver on all the appeasement and surrender-to-terrorists promises that he’d made.

Let me that, since Hasan did not see the difference between a suicide bomber and a soldier throwing himself on a grenade, I wish he’d just decided to throw himself on a grenade, instead.

I’m guessing he COULD tell the difference, after all.

We also find out from Hasan’s co-workers that Hasan loudly said that the “Muslims should stand up and fight against the aggressor.”  They initially assumed he meant that Muslims should stand up and fight the terrorists like al-Qaeda.  But he made it clear to them that he meant Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan should turn against their American allies and join the terrorists.

Hasan was objectively against the United States.  Both vocally and in writing, he expressed Jihadist statements.  He obtained weapons and murdered as many unarmed soldiers as he could.  He is a terrorist.

If that isn’t enough, there’s this from the Los Angeles Times:

A witness has told investigators that the Army major who allegedly opened fire on his fellow soldiers at Ft.  Hood Army Base Thursday shouted  “Allahu Akbar” — Arabic for “God is Great” and the rallying cry of suicide bombers around the world — before unleashing his bloody assault that left 13 dead and 30 others wounded.

In a briefing with reporters this morning at the base, Col. John Rossi said, “We do have a witness who reported that.”

And this morning on NBC’s “Today” show, Lester Holt aired tape of the father of a soldier who said that his daughter told him the same thing.

For what it’s worth, experts in Arabic say that “Allah Akbar” doesn’t actually mean, “God is great.”  It really means, “Allah is GREATER.”

The Qur’an says: “Fight and slay the pagans [Christians] wherever ye find them and seize them, confine them, and lie in wait for them in every place of ambush” (Surah 9:5).

That’s worthy of mention, given the fact that Hasan was seen handing out Korans just prior to his lethal terrorist attack.

But don’t worry, people.  Nothing to see here.  Obama officials have scurried to assure everyone that this wasn’t a terrorist attack.

Right.

Let me tell you that one of the key ingredients of psychosis is maintaining false and fixed beliefs.  And by that standard, the Obama White House and the mainstream media are nearly as psycho as Major Hasan.

This in actual fact amounts to the second successful terrorist attack against the United States by a Muslim extremist.  Here’s a link to the first, which occurred in June.  We’re told:

Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, 23, also known as Carlos Bledsoe, is charged with capital murder and 16 counts of terroristic acts.

According to the police reports, Muhammad admitted to shooting the victims, and then revealed how and why.

He told police that he put three weapons, including an assault rifle, into his SUV and then drove around until he saw the Recruiting Station and the two soldiers smoking outside the building.

He then pulled into the parking lot in front of the station, stopped his vehicle, and began shooting at the soldiers standing outside, firing several rounds from an SKS assault rifle with the intent of killing them. Muhammad also told officers that he would have killed more soldiers if they had been on the parking lot. Muhammad also told police he was a practicing Muslim, and that he was mad at the U.S. military because of what they had done to Muslims in the past.

That’s one more attack than President Bush suffered throughout his entire eight year presidency, you should know.

Of course, Bush learned his lesson, and then he taught the terrorists their lesson.  Bush was surprised, and had to build a system to protect the nation from scratch.  He created plenty of safeguards to defend the country from the next terrorist attack and got them up and running.  But those days are long gone, as Obama knocked down most of those safeguards like lined-up dominoes.

We’ve had a whole mess of attempted terrorist attacks that were broken up between the two successful ones (see here and then here for others).

It seems that the doctrine that Obama’s sheer wonderfulness will stop Muslims from wanting to kill us has a few problems.

Weakness is provacative to jihadists.  And Obama is so, so very weak.

In fact he’s a lot WORSE than weak, given his “response” to the murder of a dozen soldiers.  Can you believe giving a “shout out” to supporters at an event AFTER he knew about the steadily increasing body count? What’s sad is, I can.

Now we are desperately trying to release our Gitmo detainees knowing full well that many of them will return to their terrorist activities to fight and kill American soldiers again.  After all, Obama said he’d free these people.  And it’s about time he kept at least one promise in his life, I suppose.

And as we ponder the horrendous murder of our unarmed soldiers at the hands of a psychiatrist-turned terrorist (remember the medical doctors in the U.K. who unleashed a terror attack?), we have to realize: our president actually tried to release terrorists suspects detained at Gitmo to the United States.  The more the merrier, I suppose.

Obama ended “the war on terror” by redefining it as an “overseas contingency operation.”  No matter, the terrorists are very much on a very different page than Obama.

  1. W. Holder Says:

    This is the most well written appraisal of the situation as regards political correctness and terrorism within the US that I’ve seen.

    Political correctness has seriously damaged the moral character of our country.

    Political correctness combined with largely unchecked immigration over our southern border is responsible for the latinization of our culture.

    Political correctness and a generally more liberal attitude is responsible for the rise in gang violence and the ultra violent type crime we’ve been seeing in this country for the last two decades – most often committed by kids and young adults.

    Political correctness drives forward the faith of global warming as catastrophic and caused by man even in the face of growing evidence to the contrary.

    Now, political correctness will foster radical islamist terrorists.

    Political correctness has seriously impaired our ability to perceive and evaluate the obvious – it hampers our innate predisposition to employ a common sense approach and solution.

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    You are so right about political correctness, Mr. Holder. It is the death of Western civilization. And the funny thing is that, while seemingly a reaction against fascism, it actually welcomes BACK fascism. As I write about in a 3 part series (“How Postmodernism Leads To Fascism“), the underlying premises/ foundations for fascism are identical with those of postmodernism – from which political correctness flows.

    What we need is truth, and we need it as never before. What we get is a mindset that fundamentally denies the very possibility of truth.

    Being politically correct is not just a polite attempt to make people feel better, or to include people who might otherwise be ignored; it’s a much larger, coordinated effort to completely alter Western culture as we know it. The left formulated this plan a long time ago and they continue to execute it today: to shape and thereby change the argument and even shape and control thought itself by shaping and controlling the language. Those with radical leftist agendas understand this plan and are taking advantage of an oversensitive public.

    Good point.

    And Besides the Biggest terrorist attack on American soil that killed over 3000 people on September 11, 2001 don’t forget:

    1. Richard Reid who , like the underpants bomber, unsuccessfully attempted to blow up 3 months after 9/11 aboard American Airlines Flight 63. Like the undepants bomber his bomb failed to detonate.

    2.John Lee Malvo and John Allen Muhammad who were tried for terrorism and the murder of 10 Americans the Washington Metropolitan Area over a three-week period in October 2002
    (Michelle Milkin has some of their revealing jihadist drawings on her blog)

    Of course we’ve had a lot of attacks prior to Obama like the anthrax attack and the Virginia tech massacre but we can’t count those as “terrorist” attacks since terrorist attacks have to have a Muslim element.

    There’s an interesting website that chronicles all the Muslim attacks in the US going way back up to the present
    I’m not sure how accurate. There’s a lot of attacks that haven’t got much press
    Check it out and see what you think

    I’ll add a couple of points.

    1) Richard Reid has been compared to the Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab due to the similarity of tactics. But what is important to realize is that Clinton left Bush with absolutely NO system to protect this country, or to deal with terrorists as enemy combatants. In huge contrast, Bush DID leave Obama a good system that worked; but Obama took it apart.

    2) John Lee Malvo’s sniper attacks certainly employed terrorist tactics (one could argue that Son of Sam killer David Berkowitz was a terrorist by the same standard), but his motive may or may not have been terrorism. The prosecutor believed that he wanted to kill his wife and make her death appear as a random victim of “the sniper.” And at the trial he also said his aim was to extort money from the government (to pay for the murders to stop). He also claimed to follow Osama bin Laden, but during the spree he left messages such as “I am God” that hardly sounded like an Islamic terrorist. He never had any contact with any major terrorist organizations such as al Qaeda, which would have given the Federal authorities a chance to zero in on him.

    Nidal Hassan was an isolated attacker, but he had been in contact with al Qaeda and should have been detected by federal authorities, as another example.

    That’s the real sign of a terrorist attacker that most matters: the attacker’s ideology, and his relationship, contact, and support from national/international terrorist organizations.

    You don’t have to be Muslim to be a terrorist (although the overwhelming majority of terrorists today are Muslim). The IRA was a terrorist organization, as was the Red Army Faction (aka the Baader-Meinhof Group). Ultimately what one needs is a political ideology that easily justifies the use of violence and murder to accomplish a political objective.

    We had a spate of what would qualify as terrorist attacks early on in the Bush years – continuing from the build-up of terrorism during the Clinton years while al Qaeda grew stronger and bolder. But after Bush got his Patriot Act and domestic eavesdropping and Gitmo and other measures in place, the country was largely safe.

    Until Obama tore those safeguards down, or hamstrung them.
