Again completely false. We knew what he shouted and what people had said about his attitude, his dress and his opinions. We also knew he tried extremely hard to get out of service overseas.Second, it was not immediately clear whether the guy had any radical tendencies.
Really. Please list all these mass shootings by US soldiers on other soldiers and civilians since they happen with "relative frequency".Third, mass shootings happen with relative frequency and only a very small percentage of them are related to terrorism.
Your excuses are pathetic.
Wrong again as I just demonstrated.In this case, the rational among us still urged restraint, but information was available much more quickly.
No faster than the solider.First, the guy's name and background came out relatively quickly.
So what? The soldier's actions alone showed his intentions.Second, it was immediately clear that the guy was on terrorist watch lists.
So are shootings where Allahu Akbar is shouted.Third, attempted bombings of planes are very rare and are almost always related to terrorism.
But please continue digging a hole for yourself. List all the non terrorist shootings where Allahu Akbar was shouted and it wasn't Islamic Terrorism.
BTW, just to blow away your excuses about how slow we got information on this, here is an article posted the next day with the Islamic terrorist's name.
How about another?
Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, an Army psychiatrist who had counseled troops and was upset about being deployed to Afghanistan shouted "Allahu Akbar!" — Arabic for "God is great!" — and opened fire on an unarmed crowd at the Army post Thursday afternoon, military officials said. Thirteen people died and 30 were wounded.
A disgruntled doctor
Hasan was born in Virginia and graduated from Virginia Tech, according to The Roanoke Times archives.
He later received two degrees from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Md., according to Hasan's military record and a university newsletter.
U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul, a Republican from Austin, was briefed by military officials and said Hasan had taken some unusual classes for someone studying about mental health.
"He took a lot of extra classes in weapons training, which seems a little odd for a psychiatrist," McCaul said.
McCaul said Hasan had received poor grades for his work at Walter Reed and was not happy about his situation in Fort Hood, where Hasan apparently felt like "he didn't fit in."
"He's disgruntled because he had a poor performance evaluation, he doesn't believe in the mission, he's looking at getting transferred to Afghanistan or Iraq," McCaul said. "He's not happy about all that."
McCaul added that officials planned to interview Hasan to try to determine for sure that he was not working with foreign agents.
"From an intelligence standpoint, that's key, finding out if he talked to anyone overseas," McCaul said.
Hasan had come to the attention of federal law enforcement officials at least six months ago because of Internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other threats, according to a federal law enforcement official who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the case.
The official said investigators were trying to confirm that Hasan was the author of the postings, one of which was a blog that equates suicide bombers with a soldier throwing himself on a grenade to save the lives of his comrades. One of the officials said federal search warrants were being drawn up to authorize seizure of Hasan's computer.
Face it, your excuses that we didn't have enough information when articles not only listing his full name, what he shouted and his history were clear the next day.
Your pathetic excuse that we didn't have information for "quite some time" has been proven completely false and smacks of excuses for your own inability to admit the truth about this Islamic terrorist from the beginning.
The only difference is the method of attacking Americans. So my question still stands. Why did one Islamic Terrorist receive all the excuses from liberals while the other was condemned immediatly?
The answer is simple. Hasan succeeded so liberals went into full defense mode not wanting to admit this was the first sucessful mass attack by Islamic Terrorists under Obama.
