The Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, issued his "interim recommendation of the Fort Hood Follow-on Review." It is a stunning indictment of Gates gross negligence and grounds for dismissal.
Gates' implementation memo, as well as a detailed description of the actions to be taken on each of the 26 recommendations, can be found here.
I cannot for one second imagine Donald Rumsfeld issuing such an idiotic
dhimmi report addressing everything that's nothing and nothing that's
everything and avoiding the impetus for the massacre at Fort Hood --
jihad. Gates can circle jerk all he wants, but there is nothing in this
report that will alter the outcome of the next jihad on the military.
It is dangerously incompetent and fatal -- to our troops.
Below is the power point presentation given by Major Muslim Hasan on grand rounds. He is, in effect, announcing his jihad. It is such a good and succinct primer to Islam that I use when making presentations on jihad.
Classmates who participated in a 2007-2008 master’s program at a military college said they had complained to superiors about Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan’s anti-American views, which included his giving a presentation that justified suicide bombing and telling classmates that Islamic law trumped the U.S. Constitution. (more here)
Juxta that with the "recommendations of goody Gates:
1) Pilot program to report suspicious activity? Is devout Islam suspicious? Is Islamic fundamentalism suspicious, or would that be defaming islam, islamophobic and "racist"?
2) Law Enforcement Data exchange. Is jihad considered criminal activity? If so, where in this document does it say that?
3) More inter-departmental crap.
The report dictates that the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and America's Security Affairs as the DoD lead for the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force program.
4) Incorporate Department of Homeland Security's best practices? Like what -- targeting vets and tea partiers?
Further, the report lists some near-term actions to be taken to remedy the intelligence failures, including 26 of the 79 recommendations made by a panel charged with reviewing the shooting.
Like what? More sharing of "health care assessments." Are they saying Islam is a mental illness. or will they use mental health issues to persecute and court martial patriots?
The irony in all this is that the best recommendation to address jihad in the military came from Major Hassan's own power point presentation.
"Department of Defense should allow Muslim soldiers the option of being released ......"to increase troop morale and decrease adverse events."
