No longer do we have to jump to conclusions about Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the Ft. Hood terrorist. Because we now know that’s exactly what he is. What makes it all the worse however is that he wore the uniform of an Army officer.
And it gets worse from there. As it turns out, a ‘political correctness’ attitude prevented his superiors from doing what should have been done before things got this far out of hand. And if you think that he is the only radical Islamist to have successfully infiltrated the U.S. military, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.
It’s time the Commander In Chief starts acting like one and have the guts to call it what it is. Lest he loses what respect that those who have sworn to serve under him may have left. Soft on terror? If the shoe fits . . .
Hasan was a terrorist, and last Thursday he acted out on it. It wasn’t a man made disaster. It was an act of terrorism inside Ft. Hood. This guy didn’t ‘act stupidly.’ He gunned down non-believers who were preparing to take the war to the enemy overseas. They were Americans first, not Muslims first. And just like the suicide bombers and the cowards that plant roadside bombs, this coward took weapons to a concentration of unarmed men and women who volunteered to fight for and serve our country.
I’m not acquainted with how the military justice system differs from the civilian criminal justice system. But I’m hoping that this guy will soon face a firing squad or a rope.
