The violence at Fort Hood,
President Obama told mourners on Tuesday, was
that led to the tragedy," he reiterated, may be
"too hard to comprehend." If the Bush administration suffered a
systemic failure of imagination on homeland security,
the Obama administration is suffering a willful failure
What exactly is so hard to
comprehend? Fort Hood jihadist Maj. Nidal Hasan made his
means, motives and inspiration all too clear for
those willing to see and hear. In his 2007
slide presentation to fellow Army doctors on
World View As It Relates to Muslims in the Military," Hasan
spelled it out:
"We love death
more then (sic) you love life!"[Slideshow
Hasan exposed the deadly tension
between his adherence to Islam and his service in the
U.S. military. Slide 11 stated:
harder and harder for Muslims in the service to morally
justify being in a military that seems constantly
engaged against fellow Muslims." Slide 12 cited
Koranic sanctions for killing fellow believers. And
Hasan made clear he wasn`t alone among Muslim soldiers
who "should not
serve in any capacity that renders them at risk to
hurting/killing believers unjustly."
Slide 13 ominously listed
"adverse events" involving Muslim soldiers—including the
fatal 2003 fragging attack on American soldiers in
Sgt. Hasan Akbar (who was sentenced to death but
remains alive while his case is on appeal); the
desertion case of Lebanon-born Muslim Marine Wassef Ali
Hassoun; and the espionage case of Muslim chaplain James
Yee (the charges were dropped, but the case raised
lingering security concerns about Muslim chaplains at
Gitmo and elsewhere trained by terror-linked
a few "adverse
events" that have faded from public memory in
our reflexive age of
"Islam is peace" emotionalism-over-comprehension:
John Muhammad, the
put to death Tuesday night, was a member of the
Army`s 84th Engineering Company. As I`ve reported
Muhammad was suspected of throwing a thermite grenade
into a tent housing 16 of his fellow soldiers as
they slept before the ground-attack phase of Gulf War I
in 1991. Muhammad was admitted to the Army despite being
court-martialed while serving in the Louisiana National
willfully disobeying orders, striking another
noncommissioned officer, wrongfully taking property and
being absent without leave.
Although Muhammad was led away in handcuffs and
transferred to another company pending charges for the
grenade attack, an indictment never materialized.
Muhammad was honorably discharged from the Army in 1994.
brainwashed young Lee Malvo in black nationalism and
jihad—and the two carried out the three-week killing
spree that left 10 dead in 2002 in the name of Allah.
Muslim American soldier Hasan Abujihaad was
convicted last year on espionage and material
terrorism support charges after serving aboard the
and sharing classified information with al-Qaida
financiers, including movements of U.S. ships just six
months after al-Qaida operatives had killed 17 Americans
in the port of Yemen.
Jeffrey Leon Battle was a former Army reservist,
convicted of conspiring to levy war against the
United States and
"enlisting in the
Reserves to receive military training to use against
America." He had planned to wage war against
American soldiers in Afghanistan.
Egyptian Ali A. Mohamed joined the U.S. Army
resident alien despite being on a State Department
terrorist watch list before securing his visa. An avowed
Islamist, he taught classes on Muslim culture to U.S.
Special Forces at Fort Bragg, N.C., and obtained
classified military documents. He was granted U.S.
citizenship over the objections of the CIA. Honorably
discharged from the Army in 1989, Mohamed then hooked up
with Osama bin Laden as an escort, trainer, bagman and
messenger. Mohamed used his U.S. passport to conduct
surveillance at the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi. He later
pleaded guilty to conspiring with bin Laden and admitted
his role in the 1998 African embassy bombings that
killed more than 200 people, including a dozen
Political correctness is a
gangrenous infection. My generation has submitted to a
toxic diet of multiculturalism, identity politics,
anti-Americanism and entitlement. The problem festered
under the Bush administration. Despite 9/11, government
at all levels refused to screen out jihadi-apologizing
influences in our military, at the FBI, in prisons and
even fire departments. Despite the bloody consequences
of open borders, the Bush Pentagon allowed illegal
aliens to enter the military. The grievance lobby has
plied the Muslim jihadist-as-victim narrative for nearly
a decade now.
They prevail. In June, Muslim
domestic terror suspect Abdul Hakim Mujahid Muhammad
went on another shooting spree at an Arkansas recruiting
station that left one serviceman dead. The Obama Justice
Department response: to redouble its efforts to use
civil rights laws to protect Muslim Americans."
Next week, Attorney General Eric
speak at a banquet featuring the Council on
American-Islamic Relations, an unindicted co-conspirator
in the terrorism financing case against the Holy Land
Foundation for Relief and Development.
How did Fort Hood happen, obtuse
Washington asks. Simple: Blind diversity equals death.
