This is the price that has to be paid for POLITICAL CORRECTNESS in our society.
What’s even more chilling is that it has occurred on a United States Military Reservation on US soil by an OFFICER of the US Army.
We are in a world-wide war with the philosophy of a religion which believes that it alone shall rule supreme on earth. That all other faiths, societies and nations must be subsumed by and to it.
The peace loving religion of Islam has more escape clauses than a slip and fall attorney on steroids.
In short where the ‘faith’ is concerned anything, literally anything, goes. There are dispensations for any behavior including, but not limited to, giving false witness and lying under oath.
Major Nidal Malik Hasan was given the best this country had to offer in terms of education. It allowed him to become a Medical Officer in the Army. He took an oath to follow the lawful orders of superior officers and to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. He had made statements which SHOULD have set off alarms all over a security conscious military. He went on a one man JIHAD/SUICIDE mission in which he killed 13 US citizens and wounded 31 others.
This is not the first time a member of the ‘religion of peace’ has committed a crime against this country in incidents which are usually quickly hushed up or barely reported at all.
In the massacre at Fort Hood the cartridge casings hadn’t stopped bouncing on the deck before an FBI type was contacting a news service breathlessly pronouncing that “It’s not terrorist related”.
Really? Does anyone remember the one man Jihadi who shot up the EL Al terminal at LAX? Or the DC sniper who was a homegrown Muslim convert?
As a matter of FACT since 9/11 there have been THIRTY ONE attacks on US Citizens by Islamo-Fascist terrorists on US soil, domestically grown or otherwise. Meanwhile, US Muslims are quick to start playing the victim card blaming everyone and everything but themselves.
There is tremendous danger in not recognizing the danger of a ‘religion’ for whom lying under oath or otherwise is a legitimate method of advancing a hateful repressing philosophy based on a seventh century mentality and whose aim is first and foremost the destruction of our country and our way of life.
Yet our government…ESPECIALLY THIS government, ever mindful of ‘Muslim sensitivities’, continues down the precarious path of political correctness to the detriment of our society and most particularly our military. Our Military Intelligence and CID (Criminal Investigation Division), that would normally function in high gear in a country at war, has been largely muzzled and ignored in the race to be sensitive and accommodating to cultures other than our own. These people need to be freed to do their jobs.
Major Hasan should never have gotten as far as he did…the signs were all there for those who cared to see.
There is a culture of political correctness in our military, and most particularly in the Army, which is going to cost more lives unless we stop and take inventory of what and who we face and stop treating this world-wide WAR as though it were a parlor game at a sorority party.
Undoubtedly there are many US Muslims who are solid loyal American citizens…undoubtedly there are many who are not and how are we to know the difference?
