Answers for Obawan

From Andrew McCarthy at the Corner:

Mr. President, Is It Getting Any Better as the Answers Come In?

President Obama today in the Rose Garden, speaking about the Muslim mass-murderer who killed many more Americans yesterday than were killed by the Muslim mass-murderers who bombed the World Trade Center in 1993: “We don’t know all the answers yet. And I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts.”

So, at the Investigative Project on Terrorism, Steve Emerson marshals some of the answers that have come in about Nidal Malik Hasan: “Born in Virginia, sent to medical school by the U.S. Army, the psychiatrist was chastised for proselytizing to his patients about Islam. Asked his nationality, he didn’t identify himself as an American but as a Palestinian. He appeared pleased by the shooting death of a Little Rock Army recruiter in June and reportedly was heard saying, ‘maybe people should strap bombs on themselves and go to Times Square.’ In the fateful moment before he opened fire on his unarmed victims, he shouted Allahu Akhbar!’”

President Obama has had no problems jumping to conclusions about everything from the stimulus (it was going to keep unemployment below 8 percent) to Honduras (the administration pronounced it a lawless coup when, as the answers came in, it was shown to be the opposite of that). In fact, based on what it acknowledged was no “specific information,” his Homeland Security Department concluded that the country was about to experience a surge of violence from “rightwing extremists.” I don’t know what further answers the president is going to need here, but it seems some pretty obvious conclusions are in order.

By the way, as Steve points out, CAIR has also weighed in. They say … we don’t know all the answers yet and we shouldn’t jump to conclusions.

HE cautions US against jumping to conclusions before having all the facts. Priceless!

I’d like to comment on this thread, but first I want to get a shout out to Dances with Wolves, Geronimo, Wilma Mankiller, and Captain Kangaroo.

If it was a Cambridge cop, then it would be OK to jump.

FTA…. I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts.

It would have been nice if he would have not jumped to conclusion when he said race was a factor with the cop and his black bro professor. He could have skipped the beer conference.. Jerk..

Good Grief—What facts do you need to know, other than :

1) He is a Muzzie (the religion of pieces).

2) He hates the U.S.

3)The FBI (according to Drudge ) knew about his intentions, yet never did anything to warn people.

The rest of the “Evidence ” is pure fluff!

Did I miss something or do I remember that an announcement was made BEFORE the identity of the shooter was known,(and while 2 other people were being held), that, “The FBI has announced that this is not a terrorist attack”. Seems to me we are doing a lot of “jumping” to take the heat off our radical muslim friends. s\

When it’s HIS people committing the crimes, we should wait for facts. Thanks, BHo, but I have all the facts I need. One day, that crowd is going to pay for all their murders and it is we who will be dancing in the streets.
