On November 5, 2009, Major Nidal Malik Hasan walked into Fort Hood. He brought his personal firearm on to the base, which, by the way is not permitted, and opened fire after yelling Allah Akbar. Later investigations showed that the Major had strong resentment (an understatement if there ever was one) against the United States and was very sympathetic (although I call him pathetic) toward the Radical Muslim terrorists.
All the warning signs were ignored because of political correctness. I believe everyone who has been involved in forcing political correctness into our armed services in the past 30 years should be court-marshaled and if found guilty, hung with a short rope.
Every one of these people, whatever their political leanings, should be held accountable for the thirteen lives of brave soldiers that were snuffed out. These soldiers, who voluntarily put themselves in harms way, willing to pay the ultimate price for he freedom of us and also peoples around the world, lost their lives not on the battlefield, but in the “safety” of a military base.
A report, Independent Review Related to Fort Hood, missed the major issues and was a typical feel-good liberal-biased report. Defense Secretary Robert Gates ordered the report, but who knows if there was any pressure to sweep the real issues into a hole and bury them with an ostrich’s head.
It was reported Major Hasan was trying to persuade people he was working with that the radical Islamic views should be accepted. He even argued for their cause and that our troops were wrong to be killing Muslims. Hasan should have been stopped right then.
