  • Hasan Not Talking;FBI Dropped Ball

    Investigators: Ft. Hood suspect acted alone

    By DEVLIN BARRETT, Associated Press Writer Devlin Barrett, Associated Press Writer – 1 min ago

    WASHINGTON – The Army psychiatrist accused of the Fort Hood massacre apparently acted alone and without outside direction in the attack, investigative officials said Monday evening. Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan will be charged by the U.S. military rather than in a civilian court, they said.

    Although investigative officials portrayed Hasan as a lone wolf, the investigators and a U.S. official disclosed that Hasan communicated 10 to 20 times with a radical imam overseas who in the past came under scrutiny for possible links to terror groups. The investigative officials said the communications began last year and continued into this year and "were consistent with the subject matter of his research," apparently on the effects of U.S. combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. The U.S. official said the communications were with the radical imam, Anwar al-Awlaki.

    U.S. officials were aware of the communications since last year, but no formal investigation was ever opened based on them, the officials said. They said that FBI Director Robert Mueller has ordered an internal review of the bureau's handling of the Hasan information.

    The officials spoke Monday evening on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the investigation on the record. Awlaki, who was released from a jail in Yemen last year, writes a blog that denounces U.S. policies as anti-Muslim.

    Investigators tried to interview Hasan on Sunday at the military hospital where he is held under guard, but he refused to answer and requested a lawyer, the officials said.

      As we all know all too well, the Army does not allow it.

          As far as I'm concerned he can meet Allah....on OUR terms. POS

            see other thread about 'special agents'.... what do you expect...

            It's a shame the US military is trying him instead the state of TX. He might receive the death penalty but the odds are very slim he'll receive it.

              We were discussing in the office today whether or not the military will hang or shoot him for this. I personally think they will.

              However, as much as I support the death penalty, I'd almost rather this POS spent the rest of his life getting to know 72 "virgins" by the name of Bubba in the federal pen.
              If I tell you what I know, I'd have to kill you. Fortunately, I don't know much.

                  Who knows? He might like it.

                  My hope is that this incident will cause our law-enforcement agencies to worry less about offending religious extremists and concern themselves more with protecting our country.

                      +1 Agreed.

                      I'm baffled the Army allowed this to take place without any action or at least follow up investigation. We're supposed to prevent things like this from happening not wait till it happens and just twiddle our thumbs afterwords.

                        Our country is very tolerant and is afraid of offending anyone's beliefs and now that's being exploited.

                          We aren't tolerant, it's that no one wants to stand up and nail this POS to the wall and appear to be the bad guy. It's like they don't want to hurt anyone's feelings and perhaps make a few folks upset by doing the right thing.

                            Agree totally with your hope. That last part is what's the problem. We're just too **&^% scared of offending anyone.

                              So much for the "Homeland Security" interagency cooperation concept. Interstate cooperation of law enforcement agencies have greater intelligence exchange programs than the Feds. Locals work with, not against, one-another!
                              Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence!
