A (conspiracy) theory about the forces that allowed Hasan to remain in the military
A reader has brought to my attention a long, complex, and not very easy to understand blog article called “Did Someone Miss The Dots, Or Did Someone Shutdown The Connecting?” In it, a knowledgeable-sounding blogger named AJStrata makes a plausible case that Attorney General Holder shut down the joint terror task force investigation into Nidal Hasan’s e-mail correspondence with a terror-supporting imam in Yemen in early 2009, and, further, that the absurd-sounding reasons being put forth now as to why the investigation was stopped (e.g., Hasan was only asking the imam about PTSD; the investigation violated his free speech rights) are signs of, and part of, a fast and furious cover-up.
One thing you have to understand is the only way for the NSA to use the Bush expedited investigation process is for the US Attorney General (or his designee) to petition the FIS Court to proceed with just the NSA evidence in hand. If the US AG doesn’t do this, there is no expedited investigation.Here is his summing up:
If this were a case of someone slipping through (a missed dot) I don’t think we would see all this wild spin and finger pointing. Everyone would stand by each other and simply say ‘we missed this one, we need to do better’. Everyone knows it will happen sooner or later.
