Unexplained connections of the Jihdist Nidal Malik Hasan

Hasan has broken his oath, and is beneath contempt.

A senior government official tells ABC News that investigators have found that alleged Fort Hood shooter Nidal Malik Hasan had "more unexplained connections to people being tracked by the FBI" than just radical cleric Anwar al Awlaki. The official declined to name the individuals but Congressional sources said their names and countries of origin were likely to emerge soon.

Questions already surround Major Hasan's contact with Awlaki, a radical cleric based in Yemen whom authorities consider a recruiter for al Qaeda. U.S. officials now confirm Hasan sent as many as 20 e-mails to Awlaki. Authorities intercepted the e-mails but later deemed them innocent or protected by the first amendment.

The FBI said it turned over the information to the Army, but Defense Department officials today denied that. One military investigator on a joint terror task force with the FBI was shown the e-mails, but they were never forwarded in a formal way to more senior officials at the Pentagon, and the Army did not learn of the contacts until after the shootings. More...

Several things come to mind here...

1. Are these unexplained connections really unexplainable, or does the FBI choose not to make these connections?

2. How is it that the FBI could say it turned over information and yet the Army not have this intelligence, was therea middle man who stopped this information from arriving to the Army? Given the FBIs success in stopping the 9/11 bombers I believe it is possible that the information was never even collected fro transferral to the Army.

3. If the Army had gotten wind of Hasan's articulation of support for the enemies f the United States and did nothing there are useless, and they need to be replaced with someone who knows how to do the business.

4. Fitness for Duty reports written in the Marine Corps are not ignored. How is it that Walter Reed Army Hospital sent their trash to Ft Hood, thereby passing the buck with regards to to his inability to conform to the Army's mission.

5. There is no excuse which can be made for Hasan's act of terrorism, so Nidal Malik Hasan, was called "Camel Jockey" is not relevant. "Sticks and Stones..." He is not a victim and should not claim to be. He fed from the Federal tit, got an education, a degree and was paid a great deal of money.

The attack on Ft Hood gives truth to the postulation that the fanatical Muslims need no provcation to commit atrocities.

In Christ lay our only Hope.
