    Yeah, okay. If that is the case then a nice big portion of our intelligence community, the FBI, and the officer corp of the U.S. Army is an absolute joke...completely incompetent.

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    I blame it on a great lizardman conspiracy...

    Hey, there's as much anecdotal evidence for that as people clearly stating the only, or one of only two, options is "Political Correctness caused it"

    Are you sure it wasn't the sparkly pink elephant's fault? I hear he is VERY mischievous.

    I KNEW IT!

    But srsly. Political Correctness has brought us nothing but trouble.

    Example 1: The Race Card.

    Does that **** work in any other country? Do they even use it in other countries?

    If you're seeing pink elephants, then you might want to put that bottle down, ma'am.

    I love my bottle.

    Anyway...in all seriousness:

    Classmates who participated in a 2007-2008 master's program at a military college told The Associated Press that they complained to faculty during the program about what they considered to be Hasan's anti-American views, which included his giving a presentation that justified suicide bombing and telling classmates that Islamic law trumped the U.S. Constitution.

    "If Hasan was showing signs, saying to people that he had become an Islamist extremist, the U.S. Army has to have zero tolerance," Lieberman, an independent from Connecticut, said on "Fox News Sunday." "He should have been gone."

    Here's the thing...

    If you ask almost ANY Christian, which would they tell you was superior: the U.S. Constitution or God's laws?

    Do you get booted out of the army for believing that?

    Further, are you really going to kick a career officer out of the military for stating that there are justifications for terror attacks? Seriously?

    And, why didn't these classmates complain to his command personnel?

    You know...maybe this guy was just a troll who happened to go bat**** insane. I'd rather be safe than sorry and assume the worst, but...he did what I normally do in class, say stupid **** to get all my classmates riled up. Though, I don't know if I'd go and talk **** about the Constitution no matter who I'm trollin'

    I just think that hindsight is 20/20. We want to prevent these kinds of things, but sadly, we can't. Freedom has risks. Even if he thought those things, what were the odds that he'd take a loaded weapon on base and start firing?

    I mean, think about it. You're his classmate, do you REALLY think that he's going to turn his rhetoric into action? Lots of people say crazy stuff, very few people DO IT.

    I can just see the brew-ha-ha that would start if they had pounced on this dude. Folsk like yourself would be the ones making the most noise about it, too.
