    Political Correctness strikes again under the Obama Administration. This is just going to make people angrier. One thing to keep in mind is that Fort Hood is the largest U.S. military installation in the world.



    Fort Hood Report: No Mention of Islam, Hasan Not Named - Yahoo! News

    [​IMG]

    The U.S. military's just-released report into the Fort Hood shootings spends 86 pages detailing various slipups by Army officers but not once mentions Major Nidal Hasan by name or even discusses whether the killings may have had anything to do with the suspect's view of his Muslim faith. And as Congress opens two days of hearings on Wednesday into the Pentagon probe of the Nov. 5 attack that left 13 dead, lawmakers want explanations for that omission.


    John Lehman, a member of the 9/11 commission and Navy Secretary during the Reagan Administration, says a reluctance to cause offense by citing Hasan's view of his Muslim faith and the U.S. military's activities in Muslim countries as a possible trigger for his alleged rampage reflects a problem that has gotten worse in the 40 years that Lehman has spent in and around the U.S. military. The Pentagon report's silence on Islamic extremism "shows you how deeply entrenched the values of political correctness have become," he told TIME on Tuesday. "It's definitely getting worse, and is now so ingrained that people no longer smirk when it happens." (See pictures of Major Nidal Malik Hasan's apartment.)


    The apparent lack of curiosity into what allegedly drove Hasan to kill isn't in keeping with the military's ethos; it's a remarkable omission for the U.S. armed forces, whose young officers are often ordered to read Sun Tzu's The Art of War with its command to know your enemy. In midcareer, they study the contrast between capabilities and intentions, which is why they aren't afraid of a British nuclear weapon but do fear the prospect of Iran getting one.

    What's my point? America needs to wake up and understand that this Political Correctness or fear of offending a group of people are making this country weak and our citizens vunerable to attack by these people. We have got to get off this kick and become the America like we were during WW2 when my father in the same Division I served in fought the Japs with a determination to kill the enemy without hesitance and without regard to their customs and traditions. That is what we need to be doing today and that is my point. This appeasing Neville Chamberlain attitude our alleged President has is embolding the enemy.

    You absolutely act is if Bush totaly shut down all Afghan operations and focused on Iraq. That is not true. We have been their the whole time and some operations we will never know about regarding Osama. What matters is Obama is allegedly President now and Hasan was never profiled despite the warnings. Everything that happens now regarding the Military and its handling of matters fall directly on him, the alleged Commander N Chief. He needs to initiate a all out profiling of Muslims with middle eastern names in the U.S.

    and there is a specific reason why he and islam is not mentioned.

    It's called "Unlawful Command Influence."

    You CANNOT prejudice the upcoming trial by playing out the scenario in the Army's report. The murderer would get a mistrial and NONE of the evidence could be used against him in the future.
