Hasan repeatedly called for violence against the United States
Posted at Jihad Watch is a longish television interview with retired Col. Terry Lee who worked with Hasan. Lee says that many times he heard Hasan make statements to the effect that Muslims needed to rise up against the aggressor, meaning the United States. Lee said he thought Hasan was just blowing off steam and didn’t take his statements seriously.
A Muslim in the U.S. Army was calling for violence against the U.S., and Col. Lee didn’t think anything of it? Didn’t report it to authorities? Echoes of Columbine. Echoes of Virginia Tech. Echoes of how many other mass murders. And he’s not even embarrassed to admit it. What a idiot.
To say that this soldier committed suicide is inappropriate. Its more appropriate to say he is a brave hero that sacrificed his life for a more noble cause. Scholars have paralled (sic) this to suicide bombers whose intention, by sacrificing their lives, is to help save Muslims by killing enemy soldiers.The authorities say they are not positive that Hasan was the author, though they think he was. The AP story does not say what happened to the investigation.
