Did The FBI Fail Again Part 2
November 7. 2009
More information has been released on the motives behind the Fort Hood army base shooting, which left 13 people dead and 38 wounded, some physically impaired for life. Wow, how sad. As covered yesterday, the alleged shooter, Maj. Nidal Hasan, was openly expressing his approval of Jihad activities and getting into arguments with soldiers on the base. That was a bad sign.
President Obama has asked that people not jump to conclusions regarding the shooter's Muslim heritage
The FBI, headed up by questionable director, Robert S. Mueller, has been floating various excuses in the press, including blaming the DOJ, in the Washington Post, claiming their guidelines tied the hands of the error prone law enforcement agency, when it was recently revealed, they were given the shooter's name six months ago. However, if one makes a written threat to kill the President of the United States, one is eligible for investigation and imprisonment, as has happened to several people. Therefore, you mean to tell me, a man can go on the internet and in writing, call for Jihad, urging Muslims to murder and blow up Americans and the FBI can't do a thing about it. Why am I not buying that story.

People who espouse pro-Jihad views and make statements to that effect, verbal or written, generally do not fall under the category of mild mannered mischief. Threatening Jihad is some serious stuff. You act like he threatened to throw eggs at someone. He was writing about throwing bombs. The FBI also cited a heavy workload, as another possible excuse. If the agency didn't have a million and one initiatives and task forces, maybe it could gain some focus and direction. I do not know how they keep track of them all and this is apart of the problem.
Maj. Nidal Hasan
Whatever happened to putting things into simple categories, such as "national security" "terrorism" "pedophiles" "civil rights" "white collar" and "computer crimes." Keep it simple. Then, divide the agents into those categories. Instead, the FBI is disorganized, too compartmentalized, tribalized, fragmented and splintered, as they literally have hundreds of departments and initiatives, with ridiculously long titles that no one can truly remember off the top of their head the first dozen times. Gain some focus and cohesion. Consolidate. Once again, I do not understand the FBI, as their ways make no sense to those operating under the principles of logic, order and common sense.
Probe of suspect's motive begins
The FBI contends with a heavy volume of Internet comments from white supremacists, religious radicals and other fringe groups...Additionally, under Justice Department guidelines, the FBI cannot open an investigation based solely on a person's speech, even if it demonstrates racist or extremist tendencies. The rules applied to James W. von Brunn, the alleged Holocaust Memorial Museum shooter whose writings had come to the attention of law enforcement but who was not investigated before the deadly attack this year.
Tim Reid: Warning signs were there as killer strove to leave military
Saturday November 07 2009 - His name appears above radical internet
postings discussing Islamic suicide bombers in a favourable light --
something the FBI was alerted to six months ago.
He became involved in frequent arguments with soldiers at Fort Hood
because of his declarations that fellow Muslims "should stand
up and fight against the aggressor", and his vocal opposition
to US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
November 6th, 2009 - Nor it seems can the liberal mainstream media.
I was watching BBC’s Newsnight when the story broke of a killing
spree at a Texas military base and instantly wondered – as I’m
sure did 99.99 per cent of its other viewers – whether this had
anything to do with the Religion of Peace. Then a news update came
in that the suspect’s name was ‘Hasan’. But the BBC’s
reporter hastened to reassure us that there was “no evidence” to
suggest this was an act of “terrorism”. Phew! Perish the
