The Nidal Malik Hasan as al-Qaeda pasty story grows larger and more absurd with each passing hour. Now it is said Hasan reached out to the phantom terrorist group and the U.S. Army knew about this but didn’t tell anybody.
Can you say déjà vu? The story is beginning to look like a supplemental chapter in the 9/11 fairy tale.
“Rep. Peter Hoekstra (R-MI), the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said that he requested the CIA and other intelligence agencies brief the committee on what was known, if anything, about Hasan by the U.S. intelligence community, only to be refused,” reports ABC News.
“In response, Hoekstra issued a document preservation request to four intelligence agencies. The letter, dated November 7th, was sent to directors Dennis Blair (DNI), Robert Mueller (FBI), Lt. Gen Keith Alexander (NSA) and Leon Panetta (CIA).”
Hoekstra is in a tizzy because “the house intel committee has been refused an intelligence briefing by the DNI or CIA on Hasan’s attempt to reach out to al Qaeda.”
[efoods]Mr. Hoekstra should of course realize the CIA does not answer to Congress or the American people.
In order to build another fantastic prop for the GWOT — designed to last for decades, if not indefinitely — the government needs on occasion to cobble together fantastic yarns about demonic Muslims who hate us because of our freedoms (sic).
If the imam Anwar al-Awlaki is not a CIA stooge, he may be auditioning for the position. ABC reports:
In a blog posting early Monday titled “Nidal Hassan Did the Right Thing,” Awlaki calls Hasan a “hero” and a “man of conscience who could not bear living the contradiction of being a Muslim and serving in an army that is fighting against his own people.”
Obviously, Mr. al-Awlaki is a psychopath who marvels over the prospect of dead infidels. He is either a CIA plant or a mental case. The two are usually mutually inclusive.
In order to cast a lurid pall over the shootings, ABC and the Mockingbird corporate media are now characterizing the gun Hasan supposedly used as a “cop killer” weapon (a leading term as if there ever was one — almost any gun can kill a cop or anybody else for that matter).
Major Nidal Malik Hasan allegedly packed a FN Herstal Five-seveN tactical pistol, which according to federal law enforcement officials, was legally purchased from the “Guns Galore” shop in Killeen, Texas in Aug. 2009. The store’s manager, David Cheadle, said that particular firearm can hold 20 rounds in a standard clip and take a ten round clip extension. Cheadle said with one clip and one round in the chamber, one could fire 31 rounds before reloading.
Get ready for control freak Democrats to start calling for this particular gun and extended round magazines to be banned. In fact, they will call for all handguns to be banned and the hype surrounding the Fort Hood murders will certainly pump more hysteria into the gun-grabber movement.
