I usually limit my TV news intake to local news stations. They cover the news I care about and can usually be trusted to be reasonably accurate. Just as long a the news doesn’t concern Public Employees, Union, Illegal Immigrants or other subjects where reporting is circumscribed by Political Correctness.
Today I was on the treadmill and my wife had the flipper. She left to do something and I was presented with ABC News and the shocking story of an innocent Muslim who was driven to gun down 13 people at Ft Hood because he thought some of those soldiers should be prosecuted for War Crimes, and they weren’t.
Hasan Wanted Soldiers Prosecuted, Officials Said – ABC News
Major Nidal Malik Hasan’s military superiors repeatedly ignored or rebuffed his efforts to open criminal prosecutions of soldiers he claimed had confessed to “war crimes” during psychiatric counseling, according to investigative reports circulated among federal law enforcement officials.
His supervisor in the Department of Psychiatry, Captain Naomi Surman, told investigators that Hasan raised similar issues with her in conversations in October, according to documents reviewed by ABC News.
Captain Surman told investigators that Hasan had formally contacted military prosecutors to report patients he was evaluating, according to people briefed on the exchange. She said Hasan signed his e-mails with “Praise Be to Allah.” Legal analysts say psychiatrists are strictly bound by the rules of patient confidentiality except in cases where they might become aware of crimes about to be committed.
Captain Surman, who was scheduled to be deployed to Afghanistan with Hasan on Nov. 2 told investigators that Hasan had both social and academic issues in his medical training. She said that on one occasion, Hasan told her she was an infidel who would be “ripped to shreds” and “burn in hell” because she was not Muslim.
So you see, those shooting were not the fault of one man, it especially not due to his Muslim faith. It was entirely the fault of the Bush War Machine, and the uncaring attitudes of the American Public. And there were no red flags, nothing out of the ordinary, nothing suspicious.
No one could have see this coming.
(ABC did not make that the theme of their story, but it ran right under the surface.)
The only logical explanation, after examining all the availalbe evidence, is that this was a one-of-a-kind incident. Probably brought on by the constant harassment by Dr. Hasan’s colleagues, who insisted on not being Muslim, Carrie Prejean’s videoes, and his mental anguish over the failure of Sarah Pailin to admit her unworthiness for political office and fade away, allowing the News Media to once again turn their attention to the Greatness of Barrack Obama and the earthly paradise that he will lead us too. A future where no one will insult Muslims by not becoming one or refusing to pay the “jizya” of the dhimmi.
