Ft Hood Shooting Was a Terrorist Attack

The blame-America-first lame stream media are holding a pity party for the Fort Hood mass murderer Major Nidal Malik Hasan.  Poor boy.  Picked on by bullies and forced to do his duty to his country, if not his God, we're told we should have compassion for this tortured soul.  It's our fault of course.  And we can expect more of the same if we don't change our ways.

And then comes a dose of truth from Lt Col Ralph Peters.

Hasan is unquestionably a terrorist. He didn't just 'snap' from emotional stress. He adhered to violent Islamist doctrine for years prior to the shooting. In the days before the attack he bought two guns and sold or gave away many of his possessions. His killing spree was a premeditated act of mass murder.

The Fort Hood attack was also an act of treason. He took up arms against his own country and his own countrymen while wearing a US uniform. He swore an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and then carried out a Jihadist attack on his fellow defenders of that Constitution He should be charged with both murder and treason.

Some say he was under emotional duress at the thought of being deployed against an enemy that shares his cultural and religious heritage. Tell that to the German-Americans and the Japanese-Americans who fought against their homeland during World War II. Many of them actually fired weapons and took lives in that war. Hasan was not being asked to shoulder a rifle in Afghanistan. His role overseas was going to be no different than his role in the US: psychiatry. Some emotional duress.

And isn't a psychiatrist trained to recognize and treat cases of mental and emotional stress? Physician heal thyself.

Some say he had heard too many horror stories from returning veterans and that also weighed on his mind. If that's true then Hasan is also a coward.

That's a word you don't hear very often these days. It fell out of favor when General Patton slapped a coward during World War II. The lame stream media of that day made a stink about the slapping and Patton was forced to apologize to the coward and to the whole Third Army. That was the day cowardice was allowed into the American Army. Perhaps if Major Hasan had been slapped silly a few times by his superior officer we would not have 13 dead Americans at Fort Hood.

His family say that Hasan is a 'good American'. Benedict Arnold was a good American at one time too. In fact he was a decorated officer in the Continental Army and achieved much more for his country than Benedict Hasan ever did. And just as Arnold's plot to surrender West Point to the British made his name synonymous with 'traitor', so too should Hasan's murderous killing spree of unarmed American soldiers make his name forever synonymous with treachery and treason.

Nidal Malik Hasan is a coward, a murderer, and a Jihadist terrorist. His murderous actions at the largest Army installation in the US constitute the worst terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11. As Commander-in-Chief, President Obama must publicly acknowledge these facts and explicitly denounce Hasan as the coward, murderer, and terrorist that he is. To do any less, to equivocate on Hasan's motives or actions, is to aid and abet this terrorist monster and his Jihadist philosophy and to disgrace the office of President by spitting on the honor of the men and women who so courageously defend this nation.
