Something's amiss

This is unconscionable.

“Major Nidal Malik Hasan's military superiors repeatedly ignored or rebuffed his efforts to open criminal prosecutions of soldiers he claimed had confessed to "war crimes" during psychiatric counseling”

Not only had Major Hasan repeatedly demonstrated his ideological loyalties were not with the US whose armed forces he was serving in, but he attempted to violate his professional ethics by offering information obtained from counseling to initiate court martial investigations on his patients. There is no way that this man should have been allowed to continue in his capacity as a physician for the military, nor as an officer.

“Investigators believe Hasan's frustration over the failure of the Army to pursue what he regarded as criminal acts by U.S. soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan may have helped to trigger the shootings.”

That would be because the investigators are a bunch of witless dolts.
All of this needs to corrected, and now. Not just in the major’s current and previous postings, but all across the military.

The only upside to this tragic tale is that it underscores the problems of bringing civilian ideology of political correctness and multiculturalism to the US armed forces.


  1. What does this mean? That if we had only listened to the Major and initiated the court martials investigations he was so keen on that we could have avoided his shooting up the medical facility at Fort Hood? Can it be that these people are really dense?

  2. Another line of motive investigators might choose to consider is that the good Major was an Islamic fundamentalist who considered it his primary duty to kill the infidels that were serving with him.

    Just a thought.

  3. They're not that dense, Nick.

    That are that UNwilling to face the same realities that might vindicate a certain person whose tenure in office still has the liberals growling through the teeth. Begins with B, ends with H.

    PCness is the fantasy that is the stopgap to a another worldview.

    Some might really trust in this mess. There are always true believers.

    But they say even the Devil (smartest of all God's creations) can actually lie to himself.
