MSM Ignores Ft. Hood Killer’s Islamic Connection. Again. Still.

Major Nidal Malik Hasan may be paralyzed from the waist down, but the American mainstream media is paralyzed from the neck up. The AP reports that FN FiveseveN-wielding Fort Hood spree killer now faces the death penalty for his unconscionable crime—without once mentioning the fact that Hasan is a terrorist. An Islamic radical. A jihadist.  “Many have cried and prayed together since a gunman opened fire on the Texas Army post that sunny day in November 2009, killing 13 people and injuring more than two dozen others . . .

Some of them celebrated Wednesday’s announcement that Maj. Nidal Hasan would face a death sentence if convicted, though others were more solemn. Yet all said it was another step in their healing process.

Touchy-feely psychobabble for the victims of a brutal terrorist attack and not one word on the hatred burning in their killer’s soul? That’s pathetic.

And not unexpected. From the moment the Hasan outrage hit the wires, the MSM has pretended that the soldier was a mentally ill “lone wolf,” rather than the enemy within.

Anyone remember President Obama’s comment about Hasan’s motivations? “We cannot fully know what leads a man to do such a thing.” If you really want to turn your stomach, turn back the clock and read this post-shooting piece by the WaPo’s Sally Quinn.

Are we such a nation of cowards that we’re afraid to call out our enemies by name—even after they attack?

    Yes. Next question?

    Of course we are. Would we accept things like the Trouser Search Agency if we weren’t? The bigger question is, how did we become so culturally cowardly and how can this trend be reversed?

    Every time I see that bastard in my uniform I want to do bayonet drill on him.

    Lets not forget, that after they said the whole CCWs are worthless because a military base was attacked and they were corrected that only MPs carry on base, they promoted the idea that the gun they thought should be banned(FN 5.7) to civilians and only for military and police was used by someone in the military to kill military.

    Political correctness above all & by all means?

    We are not at war with Islam. Hasan was not a Jihadist.

    Beware of the tub thumpers. They do all the talking, but the actual killing and dying will be done by people half their age.

      Really? No, REALLY?? When I started reading this article, and the one linked to, I was skeptical. Then I used Google to search for “Nidal Hasan islam” and looked for what I consider to be non-right-wing sources of news and information. Guess what I found? Hasan IS INDEED a terrorist. That makes him a jihadist by definition.

      This is the great thing about TTAG: Often you can’t tell if people are kidding or serious, and really, it doesn’t matter.

    “We are not at war with Islam.”

    Translation: “Nicole Brown Simpson was not angry at OJ Simpson”
