Talk about backwards priorities.
Remember when the Department of Homeland Security sent out the memo talking about who may or may not be a potential terrorist? Seems like all that research went to naught, given the fact that Napolitano’s group missed this guy.
NPR: “Hasan apparently gave a long lecture on the Koran and talked about how if you don’t believe, you are condemned to hell. Your head is cut off. You’re set on fire. Burning oil is burned down your throat.”
Telegraph (London newspaper): “Hasan, the sole suspect in the massacre of 13 fellow US soldiers in Texas, attended the controversial Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Great Falls, Virginia, in 2001 at the same time as two of the September 11 terrorists, The Sunday Telegraph has learnt.”
Associated Press: “[Hasan’s] fellow students complained to the faculty about Hasan’s “anti-American propaganda,” but said a fear of appearing discriminatory against a Muslim student kept officers from filing a formal written complaint.”
Political correctness is making us less safe from certain categories of terrorists.
But remember, while it’s difficult for the authorities to do anything to islamists for free-speech reasons, the DHS has not forgotten about the threats from those terroristic members of the American Legion. Think of that when you hear who the president considers the “extremists“.
