P.C. - Warning signs ignored about murderer

Time Magazine

As officials continue to investigate the alleged Fort Hood killer, it is looking increasingly likely that the Army missed several red flags in Major Nidal Malik Hasan's behavior. Many observers say it wouldn't be surprising if such signals had been missed, given that Hasan was a psychiatrist whom the Army desperately needed to help tend to the mental wounds of two wars.

But at the same time, some members of the military are quietly discussing the more troubling possibility that the Army looked the other way precisely because Hasan was Muslim. (See pictures of the Fort Hood shootings.)

Army officials strongly deny any suggestion that Hasan's religion resulted in his being given special treatment. But one officer who attended the Pentagon's medical school with Hasan disagrees. "He was very vocal about being a Muslim first and holding Shari'a law above the Constitution," this officer recalls. When fellow students asked, "How can you be an officer and hold to the Constitution?," the officer says, Hasan would "get visibly upset — sweaty and nervous — and had no good answers."

  1. 2 disturbing reports on ABC.

    The military under orders from Commander-in-Chief Obama, sent a Muslim soldier in uniform to the mosque of the killer to invite them to the memorial service of the victims. ABC caught him on camera telling these Arabs that the Military does not consider the murders to be a terrorist act, does not view Muslims as suspicious, and would like them to attend the service. Right after the soldier drove off, 4 FBI agents arrived and started searching the Mosque for evidence. Obama must have forgot to order the FBI to also stand down.

    In a separate report, the FBI knew of contact the killer had with several Arabs under investigation as terrorist sleeper cells, but did nothing about it.
