Suicidal liberalism is in charge, America is lost

In December 2007 I wrote:

Meanwhile one of the principal promoters of the blather of 2003-2006, the thoroughly political and bureaucratic general George Casey, has been promoted from his failed efforts as commander of the ground forces in Iraq to the exalted status of Army chief of staff, where he is now pursuing the ultimate object of the thoroughly political general: diversity. Allan Wall writes about it at Vdare.

And today it is reported:

Army Chief of Staff Concerned for Muslim Troops
November 8, 2009

General George Casey Jr., the Army chief of staff, said on Sunday that he was concerned that speculation about the religious beliefs of Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, accused of killing 12 fellow soldiers and one civilian and wounding dozens of others in a shooting rampage at Fort Hood, could “cause a backlash against some of our Muslim soldiers.”

“I’ve asked our Army leaders to be on the lookout for that,” General Casey said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union. “It would be a shame—as great a tragedy as this was—it would be a shame if our diversity became a casualty as well.”

General Casey, who was appeared on three Sunday news programs, used almost the same language during an interview on ABC’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos,” an indication of the Army’s effort to ward off bias against the more than 3,000 Muslims in its ranks.

“A diverse Army gives us strength,” General Casey, who visited Fort Hood Friday, said on “This Week.”
