An Islamist in the ranks

With every hour, Nidal Malik Hasan’s motivation – and the U.S. military’s staggering negligence in not dealing with him sooner – becomes more clear:

U.S. intelligence agencies were aware months ago that Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan was attempting to make contact with people associated with al Qaeda, two American officials briefed on classified material in the case told ABC News.
It is not known whether the intelligence agencies informed the Army that one of its officers was seeking to connect with suspected al Qaeda figures, the officials said.
Investigators want to know if Hasan maintained contact with a radical mosque leader from Virginia, Anwar al Awlaki, who now lives in Yemen and runs a web site that promotes jihad around the world against the U.S.
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.”
According to his site, Awlaki served as an imam in Denver, San Diego and Falls Church, Virginia.
The Associated Press reported Sunday that Major Hasan attended the Falls Church mosque when Awlaki was there.
The Telegraph of London reported that Awlaki had made contact with two of the 9/11 hijackers when he was in San Diego.
He denied any knowledge of the hijacking plot and was never charged with any crime. After an intensive investigation by the FBI , Awlaki moved to Yemen.

For much of the mainstream media, alas, none of this will fit the narrative.

    During a Radio call-in a Muslim pretended to be “Dave” from Scarborough and pretended to condemn the “Gamil Gharbi” (AKA Marc Lepine) style Jihad for Allah’s cause to slaughter 14 female unbelivers as Hasan did in Texas to all genders and ages.
    Of course we heard the standard CAIR-Canada damage control tripe of “BUT”…….and then the caller went on about how there are only 2 Mosques in VA. and many Muslims don’t kill people even if they also attend that exact Mosque.
    Ya….Right, and when the RCMP and CSIS want Maher Arar to help expose Mohammed Momin Khawaja
    for his links to a London bombing plot, the Arar Inquiry ( which Arar never attended) exposed CAIR’s efforts to hand out booklets to Muslims to warn them not to aid Canada in exposing fellow Muslim terror cell in Canada or around the world.
    The MSM only needed to read the same Inquirt Transcripts as I did to see how CAIR’s Lawyer’s and witnesses fabricated Maher Alleged “Torture” to blame it on canada.
    Arar got $12’000’000.00 of OUR Tax dollars for what he claimed Jordan did to him according to his first Lawsuit aginst his Homeland of Syria which he was a Draft-Dodger from.
    Don’t be fooled, Sheema Khan from CAIR had tried to Sue Canadians into silence and Sue a Radio station for exposing CAIR’s ties to Hamas and Terrorism funding. Ms.Khan is on record misleading the Media about CAIR’s Charity status and its links to the Palestinian based CAIR-USA.
    Nihad Awad from CAIR was on CTV.CA to praise Arar for the money he got for the Racial-Profiling (Muslims are now a race) , Mr.Awad also admitted that CAIR had supported Arar back in 2002 after Arar had lived near the Boston Airport used by the 9/11 hijackers.
    Connect the dots people, Arar was NOR found Innocent because it was NOT a Legal Courtroom Trial which CAIR did not want. Justice O’Connor had only stated that NO Evidence showed that the Arar’s broke any of our Laws or had DIRECT ties to Terror groups or terrorism.
    Read the report,Arar applied for a Gun License just after the 1989 Jihad in Montreal that got 14 females murdered, he left his family in Canada and attend a Radical Mosque in Boston,he then Globe-Trotted to known Terrorist producing Nations and then finally Fled Tunisia to leave his wife and kids there as he tried to enter the USA at JFK to meet-up with CAIR reps that may have drove him to a Mosque that shelters Illegals and Jihadists.
    I no longer use the Subway system in Toronto, and when I see a person covered in black clothes and on a StreetCar chanting in Arabic while holding a Koran…..I get off and walk home .
    Go ahead a call me paranoid and crazy, but I’ll still be alive after the 1st stage of Jihad in Canada.
    Remember folks, 240 Canadian civilian were slaughtered by Sikh Terrorist right on our soil and were allowed to self-segragate under the Liberals and import past hatred onto our soil.

    Yes, as so many conservative pundits have pointedly observed, “the narrative” in this case (damage control to preserve the notion of the victimization of the Islamic world by the West) is markedly different from “the narrative” when a right wing lunatic kills in the name of religion. No pathetic lies masquerading as excuses for the perpetrator in those circumstances. Nope, just a full court press against the Far Right, where the perpetrator is usually portrayed as an evil incarnate hatemonger, incited by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, with millions of like-minded fanatics approving of the killer, provoking fears of “copycat” acts of violence.
    In Hasan’s case, do we see any concerns in the media about “copycat” attacks by Islamist extremists, or are the concerns solely focused on the fear that there will be “retaliation against Muslims,” with the implicit understanding that those retaliating will be exclusively the aforementioned evil Right Wingers?

    Well, it kinda makes a mockery of the “the American intelligence community is so good it caused 9/11 and got away with it…” idea.
    Or DOES it…who can find the first instance of a conspiracy theory here? What’d it take, about 30 seconds?

    Every time you post another round of these accusations, Roger (each more extreme and spectacular than the last, I might add), I ask for a transcript reference. Volume number, page number, line number.
    Every time, you don’t bother. I’m not accusing you of pulling this stuff out of your ass, but I do observe that your conduct is indistinguishable from a raging nut-bar who does exactly that. A quick reference would clear up the whole issue.

    I’m sure I’m not the first and only person to query the disconnect between Muslims saying that Western efforts to eliminate Islamic terrorism is an attack on all Muslims, and Western efforts to tell them that it isn’t. Ie, we say there are moderates and Muslims say there aren’t(?)…
    Who should know better?
    (Brings to mind my personal animosity towards folk that, in a very patronizing way, try telling me that “surely you mean you’re agnostic” when I admit to being atheistic. )
