    it's stupid as hell to begin hearings before the real investigation is complete. nothing but political grandstanding. a waste of time, which is the hallmark of congressional hearings, either side.

    The hearings aren't about what happened, but are about why it was allowed to happen and no one took action. This is the perfect time to find out where the system broke down.

    You are quite correct apdst. However, investigations have been 'stonewalled' in the past, and this is no different. From what has been leaked to the press already it shouldn't take an advanced degree in criminology to figure out what is going on here.

    Hasan, was a radical jihadist, or at least saw himself that way, hence the SoA on his business cards.

    He had contact with a radical cleric in Yemen that used to be his Imam in Maryland, who also ministered to several of the 9/11 hijackers.

    Hasan tried to establish communications with AQ, regardless of Chris Matthews pondering if that is "against the law" (it is btw).

    And now the Obama administration is aiding this man largely I believe because he doesn't want to admit to a terror attack on his watch.

    Since any congressional hearings will muddy the water for a proper criminal investigation I am in favor of the WH keeping away from this. All those guys want to do is primp for future elections.

    yeah, it couldn't be about finding out why no one picked up on a Major in our own military that was a jihadist terrorist, now could it?

    But j-mac, they did pick up on it. They just ignored it. And now, the WH wants to get as far away from this as possible cause you know that anything that happens while a man is president is his fault. That is the standard set by the Democrats with Bush so now they have to live with it.

    Remember, political correctness kills.

    I suppose the 9/11 commission was grandstanding as well, no?

    So you consider Joe Lieberman's public congressional hearing to be more important than the military or federal investigations? Maybe you should just move to Canada till a Republican is elected president. Have a nice life.
