I -- the -- also being -- by congress membership.
But all of -- should resist the temptation to turn this tragic event into the political theater that sometimes dominates the discussion here in Washington.
The stakes are far too -- Whether you believe major Nadal solace that -- spree killer Muslim extremists or -- -- cracked in the face of imminent deployment to Afghanistan war.
All of those things there -- certainly enough disturbing questions about the man who allegedly perpetrated the Fort Hood massacre to keep investigators busy for a long time and I believe.
The president is right to ask congress to stay out of this.
Wait until the courts do their probing the FBI Texas Rangers aren't US army.
Let him convict this guy's sentence and then Joseph Lieberman can hold his grandstanding I hearings and all the rest -- -- I think there are questions to answer.
But I brought reinforcements on the previous issue I've got Doug Kennedy -- Doug Kennedy and -- was gonna talk about whether Nadal Hasan was that Qaeda or crazy.
But Doug first on the issue of trying -- he's -- over.
Yeah I got to go after after an -- -- -- -- and end wants this guy to be al-Qaeda she's she needs this guy in the telephone I'm hopeful that these guys al-Qaeda because if he is.
This just expose that they're there incompetence.
I mean you know that the guys a major in the US army he's about to go to the war -- he could've killed.
Thousands of people.
It's gonna -- it pretty good to me out not out yet hey listen he -- -- -- was Alomar -- men's program hard working -- people who were who were about to go but he.
If we -- have somebody of of that of that stature.
In al-Qaeda we could have done so much damage this guy could have killed thousands of people and and and this is just.
I did this exposes I don't think that was the reinforcement anywhere lowdown on.
Yeah should really think about it -- really -- I thought would win we're in top.
But there -- if this is terror that -- the point of terrorism is to make -- quake in our boots as a country as we did on 9/11.
This shocks us appalled knows this is the site go light can you know OK so what like I like Colin I like Obama captured not.
Reach -- on the level of making a -- terrorizing.
-- saying that this is great that he killed thirteen rather than not not on -- I'm not an.
I've been working -- -- out but our position is it would have been very easy to keep him from killing a single person.
If the military had not been so vastly consumes so politically correct -- as for example I mean just during the World Series a few weeks ago -- -- holds two white guys out of the collar -- guard to perform at the World Series -- it wasn't diverse enough.
Put in a girl one of Pakistan's.
The army the -- perfectly integrated agency the United States government we have.
But the other position on Nadal Hasan as a terrorist threat yeah I don't they and then let -- if I may if I make correct -- we didn't -- weaken our boots the 9/11 you ticked us off major and you woke a sleeping giant and you're gonna get.
Trouble -- and that's a joke that is exactly that is exactly the attitude I think we should have about this guy yet that didn't this guy should not be.
But -- -- as and wants him to be raised to the level of.
Terrorizing our company pleaded with god as a person the first and I don't know whether -- every -- and -- right -- Refilling them well -- -- bring our bring another voice our ability parents directs the future terrorism project.
For the Washington based Foundation for the Defense of Democracies.
-- -- -- zeroed an expert person I don't know your religious background but do you think Nadal Hassan.
Is that terrorists -- more importantly do you believe even if he is self taught.
And his hatred comes from within and -- he never had any contact with any one from any recognized terror organization.
Does his act his murderous mass murdering act does that represent an escalation of the terror war.
Well he's certainly if someone who thought about it evident that we have so far is for the previous eight years he has made statements.
He had the same time also.
When he acted -- acted on behalf of an ideology.
If he's cycle or not we will see.
But at the end of the data that's coming in the framework of other cases you cannot just remove it and say while this is the only person.
That have ever attacked us we had the North Carolina found two cases in New York.
We had one shooting against two.
Other military in Arkansas one was that so.
You have to look at this frame of on the one hand and then look at what the actual ideological motives of python regardless of his psychological state at the time.
But I -- Have to also point out that the second worst incident of soldier on soldier violence was a guy named John Russell.
Last may may of 2009.
And camp liberty in Baghdad it kills five fellow GIs this is the Texan a Christian is -- Christian extremist I mean that's.
That's mind that my only beef with labeling the dollar -- Did but the point -- -- the was -- the guy says a lot will -- bar when he says it's suicide bombers are to be revered when he is -- the war that he is supposed to be so what do we have -- but what about.
-- -- A major point that we elevate.
-- site go spree killer who's no better than the column my kids in -- snow -- is elevating him her saying he acted out of terrorism on the most yeah it -- -- -- -- the -- there -- -- that.
But she's you're trying to make known -- full of this guy -- and quick.
I believe the question on the table was was -- acting out of stressed fewer arguments on ours was the man yelling all of look off arm before shooting was going around saying in Belgium have their heads chopped off.
Acting out of terrorism and whether the army should have noticed that we said the army should have noticed that the army should an -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
