Get this. The Army tried to teach Major Nidal Hasan about Islam. Supervisors at Walter Reed Army hospital say Hasan had a "growing preoccupation with religion and war," and they thought they could diminish that focus by taking him to school on Islam. Breaking this moment from FOX News: Hasan will be charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder.
Nidal Hasan was ordered to:
...attend a university lecture series on Islam, the Middle East and terrorism, according to a Walter Reed staff member familiar with Hasan's medical training.A very interesting quote in this article from an unknown Walter Reed staff member:
The psychiatric staff at Walter Reed did not discuss kicking him out of the service, according to the staff member. In fact, Hasan was initially considered a good medical school candidate because he had spent time as an enlisted soldier and had cared for his siblings after his parents died, both attributes that supervisors believed indicated he had a healthy work ethic.
He seems to want to do work in an area no one knows anything about," the staff member, who also requested anonymity because he had not been authorized to speak publicly, said of the order. "You don't want to close him down just because it's different."From this quote, we see the Army needs to school non-Muslims on exactly what the Koran demands. It is critical that staff know how jihadists think. Here we have a staff admitting "they know nothing" about Islam, yet tries to psych-out a radical. Unbelievable!
Hasan went to Islam 101 courtesy the U.S. Army "late last year or early this year." The Army's psychiatric staff "discussed Hasan's lack of productivity," due to his extreme immersion, and:
"constant interest in Muslims whose religious beliefs conflicted with their military duties."Notice that Hasan didn't kill any "conflicted" Muslims.
Hasan came to the attention of two joint terrorism task forces in December 2008, as he corresponded by e-mail with Anwar al-Aulaqi [al-Alwaki], a U.S. citizen and Islamic spiritual leader residing in Yemen who has exhorted followers to pursue violent jihad, or holy war.
A Defense Department analyst on one of the task forces concluded that the chatter was innocent and in keeping with Hasan's research interests, two government officials said this week.Only "government officials" steeped in politically correct
Hasan's aunt continues to say that her nephew tried to be discharged from the Army, but officials say that never happened.
In a further indication that Hasan was not actively seeking formal discharge, he was evaluated by an Army promotion board in the spring of 2008 that endorsed his performance as an officer as patriotic, and elevated him from the rank of captain to major, a promotion that took place in May 2009, according to the official.Officers who "have a remaining service obligation" will not be released. Hasan fit that category. Hasan let authorities know who he was. When will this country begin profiling a person's actions?
