Apparently, Mr. Hassan posted these comments online approximately 6 months ago. Certainly these comments are of concern (to me), especially in light of today's events, and they should have been of concern to his chain of command (if they were aware of them). According to the article, these comments were brought to the attention of some un-named "authorities", but apparently no action was taken. Not sure what "action" could have been taken--absent inappropriate behavior/actions on Hassan's part at that point. Having an unpopular geo-political view isn't a crime when one is a civilian--but having said view while being an active (and set to be deployed) member of the US military might be a separate issue that needs to be addressed. Somehow we need to find a way to stop these kinds of fraggings before more of them happen. This one is not the first carried out by a Moslem on active duty in the US military.
