Fort Hood Massacre A "Man-Caused Catastrophe"
As it stands right now this attack cannot be ruled out as an act of jihad against the U.S. military on its home soil.
Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs updates:
Malik Nadal Hasan, the jihadi that led the attack on Fort Hood, was quoted as saying "Muslims have the right to rise up against the US military" "The Muslims have a right to stand up against the aggressors" "maybe we should have more of these where people strap bombs on themselves and go into Times Square" - this according to Col Terry Lee who worked with [the] Muslim convert.Fox just played a segment of an interview with Col. Lee in which he describes the killer's recent statements against the U.S. military, and it has been announced at a press conference that Hasan is the only one known at this point to have instigated the attacks. He is in fact still alive and in custody, albeit with some holes in him. Good. This guy needs to answer for his crimes.
And no, there are no mitigating circumstances - he murdered a dozen people and seriously wounded another thirty.
Apparently this guy has been posting to the web about the heroism of Islamist suicide bombers:
Ace has been watching the MSM:
The Army psychiatrist suspected of carrying a shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, had come to the attention of authorities six months ago because of Internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other threats, law enforcement officials said Thursday.
The postings appeared to have been made by Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who was wounded during the shootings at the Army post that killed 12 soldiers and wounded at least 30 others. A Fort Hood spokesman had earlier said Hasan was killed.
The officials say they are still trying to confirm that Hasan was the author of the Internet postings. They say an official investigation was not opened.
One of the officials said late Thursday that federal search warrants were being drawn up to authorize the seizure of Hasan's computer. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case.
One of the Web postings that authorities reviewed is a blog that equates suicide bombers with a soldier throwing himself on a grenade to save the lives of his comrades."
To say that this soldier committed suicide is inappropriate. Its (sic) more appropriate to say he is a brave hero that sacrificed his life for a more noble cause," said the Internet posting. "Scholars have paralled (sic) this to suicide bombers whose intention, by sacrificing their lives, is to help save Muslims by killing enemy soldiers."
There's a lot of talk among the idiots in the media that Hasan didn't want to go to war. If even half of this accurate, Hasan had no problem going to war, he did so today. Just on the other side.
