Major Nidal Hasan and other anti-American jihadists in our Armed Forces

U.S. Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan, who is almost 43 years old, was sentenced to death in an unanimous decision by a jury panel of 13 senior military officers nidal hasanon August 28, 2013. After almost four years of delay, the unrepentant jihadist Hasan was given a court-martial on August 6, 2013 for fatally shooting 13 soldiers and an unborn child and injuring 32 others at Fort Hood, Texas on November 5, 2009. Major Hasan, who carried a “Soldier of Allah” business card, admitted being responsible for the shooting on the first day of his trial. Hasan´s horrific terrorist attack upon innocent unarmed soldiers, who were about to depart for Afghanistan, was the worst mass murder at a military installation in the history of our country.

In addition to his death sentence, Hasan was dismissed from the Army and stripped of his pay and other benefits, which he had continued to receive while awaiting his court-martial. This anti-American jihadist will now be taken to the military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. Legal experts have stated that it would likely be many years before a lethal injection can be given to this Islamic terrorist.

This writer hopes that these legal experts are incorrect and that Nidal Hassan will be promptly executed for his crimes. However, another “Soldier of Allah,” Sergeant Hasan Akbar, who was sentenced to death in April 2005 on two counts of premeditated murder and 17 counts of premeditated attempted murder, is still in prison waiting for his execution while his lawyers are appealing his case. Sgt_Hasan_AkbarImage3On March 23, 2003, Sergeant Akbar threw  hand grenades and opened fire with his M-4 automatic rifle into three tents where officers of the 101st Airborne Division were sleeping in Kuwait. Two brave officers were killed, Captain Christopher Siefert and Major Gregory Stone, and many other soldiers were injured.

This writer believes that there is something really wrong with our justice system, including the military judicial system, if assassins like Nidal Hasan continue to collect their salaries while waiting endlessly for a trial. Justice delayed is definitely justice denied.

On August 29, 2013, the Obama administration released two Algerians who were in the prison of our naval base in Guantånamo, Cuba since 2002. President Obama has given the order to close the prison in Guantånamo even though many of the prisoners join Islamic terrorist organizations upon their release. There are now 164 prisoners left, including three who are convicted of war crimes and six others who are awaiting death-penalty trials. It is incomprehensible that Islamic terrorists who were involved in the 9/11 attacks are still waiting trial for their involvement in the killing of approximately 3000 innocent civilians. Meanwhile, the relatives and friends of the victims as well as the American people are still waiting for justice to be done.  This is absolutely outrageous!

Major Nidal Hasan was found guilty on all 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder for his mass shooting at Fort Hood. Major Hasan was about to be deployed to Afghanistan when he opened fire at Fort Hood´s Soldier Readiness Processing Center, where the soldiers were receiving medical checkups before their deployment to Afghanistan. Nidal Hasan shouted “Allahu Akbar,” which means “God is Great,” and then opened fire. This shout is typically done by Islamic jihadists before they kill innocent civilians or commit murder suicide.

After killing and wounding many soldiers, Nidal Hasan exited the building pursuing a wounded soldier. Sergeant Kimberly D. Munley encountered Hasan and she opened fire. The terrorist shot her twice, one on her thigh and one on her knee. Sergeant Mark Todd, who had just arrived at the scene, shot Hasan several times and he fell down. Sergeant Todd approached the terrorist and kicked a pistol out of his hand. Handcuffs were placed on Hasan and he fell unconscious.

The carnage at Fort Hood could have been easily prevented. There were numerous “red flags” involving the conduct and statements made during many years by this Muslim Army psychiatrist that should have triggered an alarm. The Obama administration´s insane political correctness with regards to Muslims is partly responsible for this tragedy. The Obama administration has irresponsibly allowed members of the Muslim Brotherhood to rewrite the training manuals of the Pentagon, the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and the Department of Homeland Security. Muslim Brotherhood members, of course, took advantage of this opportunity to delete any critical references of Islam or the Koran found on these training manuals. This shameful action is also partly responsible for this tragedy. Many high ranking retired military officials have denounced the Obama administration´s rewriting of the Pentagon´s manuals on Islam, as well as the infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Obama administration that places our nation at risk.

Who is Nidal Malik Hasan?

Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, has an excellent article on Nidal Hasan. Most of what follows is taken from this article. Nidal Malik Hasan was born on September 8, 1970 in Arlington County, Virginia to Palestinian parents who came to the United States from the West Bank. He was raised as a Muslim along with his two younger brothers. After graduating from high school, Nidal Hasan enlisted in the United States Army in 1988 and served eight years as a soldier while attending college. Hasan graduated from Virginia Tech in 1997 with a bachelor´s degree in biochemistry. He was then accepted to the Medical School of the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. He earned a medical degree in 2003.

Nidal Hasan completed his internship and residency in psychiatry at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. The first “red flag” occurred at Walter Reed where he had extra supervision and received counseling for his conduct.

During his senior year of residency, Nidal Hasan made a presentation during a symposium of Army physicians at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. His presentation was entitled “the Quranic World View as it Relates to Muslims in the U.S. Military.” Hasan stated that the Defense Department “should allow Muslim soldiers the option of being released as conscientious objectors to increase troop morale and decrease adverse events.” Hasan explained that “adverse events” could include refusal to be deployed, to be involved in espionage, or to kill fellow soldiers.

The Wikipedia article showed slide 49/50 of Hasan´s Walter Reed presentation. These slides gave the conclusion of the presentation. The slides indicated the following:

¡       God expects full loyalty. Promises Heaven and threatens with Hell.

¡       Muslims may be seen as moderate (compromising) but God is not.

¡       I love the Koran and being a Muslim, but I don’t want to live under Islamic rule.

¡       Fighting to establish an Islamic state to please God, even by force, is condoned by Islam.

¡       Muslim soldiers should not serve in any capacity that renders them at risk to hurting/killing believers unjustly.

Hasan´s presentation was not well received by those who were present. His statements were treasonous and he should have been dismissed from the Army. Hasan´s presentation was enough for his superiors to realize that he could not be trusted and that he was a potential danger to the men and women in uniform, or at the very least, that he needed to be closely monitored. Unfortunately, political correctness got in the way and nothing was done. While studying at Walter Reed Hospital Medical School, Hasan had been disciplined for proselytizing about his Muslim faith with patients and colleagues. Air Force doctor Val Finnell, a former medical school classmate of Hasan, had complained to superiors about Hasan´s “anti-American rants.” Dr. Finnell stated that “the system is not doing what it’s supposed to do. He at least should have been confronted about his beliefs, told to cease and desist, and to shape up or ship out.”

Retired Coronel Terry Lee, who had worked with Nidal Hasan, remembered that Hasan was greatly impacted by the fact that another al Qaeda terrorist, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, shot two recruiters in Little Rock, Arkansas and was subsequently charged with murder. Coronal Lee told Fox News television channel that Nidal Hasan made statements against the military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan and stated that Muslims should stand up and fight against the aggressor, the United States being the aggressor. This was another great “red flag” that was ignored by Hasan´s superiors. As time went on, Nidal Hasan became nervous and agitated and he had arguments with soldiers. He wanted President Barack Obama to withdraw troops from Afghanistan and Iraq.

Nidal Hasan´s dangerous and treasonous connections with Anwar al-Awlaki

Nidal Hasan participated in the funeral services of his mother in May 2001 at the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in the Falls Church area of Virginia. After that date, he came once in a while for religious services. The Iman of the Dar al-Hijrah mosque was none other than Anwar al-Awlaki, who like Hasan, was born in the United States. While attending college  Anwar al-Awlaki was very active in the Muslim Students Association, a Muslim Brotherhood front organization.

One month before the funeral services of Nidal Hasan’s mother, two of the future hijackers of the 9/11 attacks, Nawaf al-Hazmi and Hani Hanjour, attended religious services at this mosque. Another jihadist who prayed at Anwar al-Awlaki´s mosque was Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, who was later found guilty of providing material support to al Qaeda and conspiring to assassinate President George W. Bush. Since Hasan was praying at this mosque at the same time with these three Islamic terrorists, it is unknown if he knew them or talked to them, as no one has clarified or investigated this possible connection.

Beginning in December 17, 2008, Nidal Hasan sent as many as 20 email messages to Anwar al-Awlaki. In his very first email, Hasan told Anwar al-Awlaki that he used to pray with him at the Virginia mosque. It is absolutely incredible that the FBI investigated Nidal Hasan´s emails to Anwar al-Awlaki, who by that time had become the spiritual advisor to al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula in Yemen and who eventually was killed by one of our drones in that country, and found nothing wrong. How could the FBI ignore such an alarming “red flag”? In October 2008, the U.S. Undersecretary for Homeland Security for Intelligence and Analyses, Charles Allen, had warned that Anwar al-Awlaki was targeting U.S. Muslims with radical online lectures and encouraging them to attack our nation.

Any  U.S. Muslim who had exchanged emails with Anwar al-Awlaki should have been seen by the FBI as a potential terrorist who could attack our country. The FBI dropped the ball with Nidal Hasan, as it did with the Boston Marathon jihadists who killed three people and injured 264 on April 25, 2013 when it failed to follow through with the information provided by Russia on one of the two Islamic terrorist brothers.

Several government officials were of the opinion that someone who was emailing a well-known al Qaeda figure in Yemen should have set off alarm bells for the FBI or the U.S. Army. Al-Awlaki had created a website in December 2008 where he condemned any Muslim that would allow himself to serve in the armies of the “disbelievers and fight against his brothers.” There is no question that Anwar al-Awlaki radicalized Hasan and drove him into violence, as well as many other Muslims in our country and abroad.

Nidal Hasan was paralyzed from the waist down from bullet wounds to the spine and more than likely he will never walk again. He spent several months hospitalized in the intensive care unit at Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas. By late 2009 Major Hasan was officially charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted murder under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

As explained earlier, during the first day of his trial on August 6, 2013, Nidal Hasan, who was representing himself, admitted that he was responsible for the Fort Hood shootings almost four years before. The prosecution called almost 90 witnesses during the court-martial. The jury panel also heard testimony from 24 victims and family members of those injured and killed during the 2009 Fort Hood shootings. On August 28, 2013, the military jury panel sentenced Hasan to death.

Our men and women in the Armed Forces remain endangered by Islamic terrorists in their own ranks

It is a sad reality, but until political correctness regarding Muslims in the Armed Forces of our country is completely eliminated, our men and women in uniform will remain endangered by Islamic terrorists in their own ranks. Sadly, political correctness is protecting Islamic terrorists serving in our Armed Forces. Michelle Malkin wrote an article entitled “How many more Nidal Hasans in our ranks?” which was published in Human Events on August 30, 2013.

She explained that Sergeant Hasan Akbar, who killed two officers and injured 17 other soldiers in Kuwait, like Major Nidal Hasan, gave plenty of notice that he was a threat to his fellow servicemen. His superior officers wrote that Hasan Akbar had an “attitude problem.” There were several incidents of insubordination, yet he was allowed to remain in the Army. The jihadist Akbar invoked his Islamic religion as a reason for not participating in the 1991 Persian Gulf War. Nevertheless, he was sent to Kuwait on the eve of the invasion of Iraq in 2003 where he had the opportunity to betray his nation. This tragedy could have also been prevented if the Army would done their job properly.

Michelle Malkin listed several al Qaeda-linked Muslim soldiers inside the United States Armed Forces and they are the following:

“Army soldier Ali Mohamed, who pleaded guilty to conspiring with Osama bin Laden to attack any Western target in the Middle East and admitted to his role in the 1998 African embassy bombings.

Naval reservist Semi Osman, who was linked to a terrorist training camp in Oregon.

Army reservist Jeffrey Leon Battle, who pleaded guilty to conspiring to levy war against the United States.

Navy sailor Hassan Abu-Jihaad, who was convicted on espionage and material terrorism support charges after serving on  board of USS Benfold and sharing classified information with al Qaeda financiers, including movements of U.S. ships just six months after al Qaeda operatives had killed 17 Americans aboard the USS Cole in the port of Yemen.

U.S. Army Private First Class Naser Jason Abdo, an overt anti-American agitator who plotted to kill his fellow soldiers to get even with the military and strike at kafirs (not Muslims).”

This writer is certain that there are many loyal Muslims serving with distinction in our Armed Forces. However, when a Muslim in the military makes statements that are treasonous or refuses a deployment, the military should immediately give that individual a dishonorable discharge and thus prevent a future tragedy.



It is absolutely unbelievable that with so many “red flags” in Nidal Hasan’s statements and conduct over the years, his superiors took no action to separate him from the Army. Unfortunately, as Michelle Malkin has pointed out, other jihadists serving in our Armed Forces, like Major Hasan, gave  plenty of notice that they were a danger to our men and women in uniform and no action was taken.

Major Hasan was a psychiatrist who was working with other psychiatrists every day. How was it possible that these psychiatrists and other officers failed to notice that there was something wrong with him? Nidal Hasan was a lonely, strange, withdrawn, socially awkward individual, never known to have had a girlfriend. These signs, together with his treasonous statements, should have given plenty of notice to his superior officers and colleagues that he was quite dangerous. Hasan should have been investigated to determine his fitness as a psychiatrist in the Army.

Nidal Hasan fitted the profile of a potential crazy killer. Several officers who worked with Hasan had heard him complaining about our country and against the “infidels” and yet no one took any action. As an Army officer that was completely unacceptable and Hasan should have been disciplined. Again, political correctness stood in the way and the fear about being accused of discriminating Muslims stopped Hasan´s superior officers from taking any action. The Fort Hood tragedy should have never occurred if the Army and the FBI would have conducted their proper investigations.

Obama crosses red lineIt is appalling that the U.S. Army, perhaps influenced by President Obama, called this horrendous terrorist attack “workplace violence.” The decision by the Army not to charge Nidal Hasan with an act of terrorism created a political storm in the nation. It was grossly unfair to the victims since they could not be adequately compensated since Hasan had not been charged with an act of terrorism.

The United States Congress must investigate the Muslim Brotherhood´s infiltration in the Obama administration and the rewriting of manuals for the Pentagon, CIA, FBI, and the Department of Homeland Security since they represent a great danger to our national security. It must also investigate President Obama´s brother Malik Obama´s connections to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Sudan. Enough is enough, we need to save our nation!

It is very unfortunate that many Muslims in the United States are being radicalized in some U.S. mosques or by websites from abroad. Many criminals in our prisons, specially African-Americans, are being converted to Islam. Domestic Islamic terrorism is increasing and it is a present and clear danger to our nation.
