U.S. intelligence agencies were aware months ago that Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan was attempting to make contact with people associated with al Qaeda, two American officials briefed on classified material in the case told ABC News

It is not known whether the intelligence agencies informed the Army that one of its officers was seeking to connect with suspected al Qaeda figures, the officials said.

Rep. Peter Hoekstra (R-MI), the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said that he requested the CIA and other intelligence agencies brief the committee on what was known, if anything, about Hasan by the U.S. intelligence community, only to be refused.

EVERYTHING about this is screaming 'terrorism'.
And yet Obama instantly said 'this isn't terrorism'. :mad:

I don't understand why this would be ignored.

Because Al Queda has nothing to do with wht happenned. It was an individual making his own choice. There are NO outside forces influencing his decision at all.:rolleyes:

Under Obama's regime, we are not allowed to take any actions that would actually mean protecting this country.


That would be judgemental!!

Why did they allow this guy to stay in the military?Exactly.

He hangs out at a known terrorist mosque. The same place the 9/11 guys hung out and he gets a pass. The FBI should have files on every person that enters or exits the place and this guy becomes a major in our armed forces.

They probably have more on me than they do this scumbag.
