More on Fort Hood

Ok as is my habit I like to let things develop a little before making too many comments.  It’s been a few day since the Fort Hood shooting.  What I’ve seen is just about what I expected.  We had a MAJ in the Army espousing radical Islamic beliefs, associate with radicals and at a minimum attempt to contact Al-Qaeda personnel.  He gave a briefing to classmates warning against Muslims in the military fighting Muslims.  This was reported and known by superiors.  Yet nothing was done?  Why?

Well let’s takes Army Chief of Staff General Casey’s own words and see if we can see a problem. 

“We have to be careful,” Casey said. “Because we can’t jump to conclusions now based on little snippets of information that come out. And frankly, I am worried — not worried, but I’m concerned that this increased speculation could cause a backlash against some of our Muslim soldiers. And I’ve asked our Army leaders to be on the lookout for that. It would be a shame — as great a tragedy as this was, it would be a shame if our diversity became a casualty as well.”

See anything that might bother you?  I do….

  1. His Diversity is already a Casualty. This is going to get worse before it gets better. Just like in Nam training the ARVN’s. When the going got tough they turned on us to show support of the North so they would not get killed. Of course at that time we shot back at them killing them and the enemy.Muslims will do the same , only for a different reason….Allah……
    If his religion gets in the way of his Duty then why did he Join in the first Place. I still stand on him being a sleeper…..
