For anyone in the military command to be surprised by the actions of Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan is an insult. We now know that Hasan shouted "Allahu Akbar" before he allegedly opened fire in the shooting spree at Fort Hood Thursday. Make no mistake, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan is a terrorist.
His name appears on numerous radical jihadist websites, he's been counciled by the military for encounters with fellow soldiers regarding the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now after Maj. Hisan has shot and killed 13 American soldiers and wounded 31, we are learning that Hisan has been under investigation by civilian law enforcement and that this fact is news to the military.
Looking at the bigger picture, there are going to many Republicans, or at least there should be many Republicans with some God Damn explaining to do over how they will continue to argue the "percieved negative impact" of gays serving openly in the military while I can think of not one who has addressed the now factual negative impact of muslim extremist serving openly in the military.
It would not surprise me in the least to see Don't Ask, Don't Tell legislation coming form the right over this issue while making gays serving in this military still the greater of two evils. I'm willing to bet that Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) will be taking the lead on this issue. Last week this crazy bitch said that "this democratic health care plan is more of a danger to America that any terrorist in any country" REALLY?
By all means, please explain....
