They knew this guy was a jihadi. They knew. But they sacrificed American lives at the alter political correctness. These religion of peaceniks are going to get us all killed.
Law enforcement officials say Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan came to their attention at least six months agon because of discussions of suicide bombings and other threats. And they left this jihad murderer there with our most precious resource? And then the first thing the FBI says is "its not terrorism"? We, the people, cannot no longer rely on law enforcement to keep us safe.They are the problem. Those brave soldiers are dead because of law enforcement. We, the people, have to be vigilant. The biggest terror attack on a US military base and the President is giving a shout out before making a statement?
WASHINGTON - Federal law enforcement officials say the suspected Fort Hood, Texas, shooter had come to their attention at least six months ago because of Internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other threats.
The officials say the postings appeared to have been made by Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who was killed during the shooting incident that left least 11 others dead and 31 wounded. The officials say they are still trying to confirm that he was the author. They say an official investigation was not opened.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case.
One of the Web postings that authorities reviewed is a blog that equates suicide bombers with a soldier throwing himself on a grenade to save the lives of his comrades.
