Fort Hood

The Telegraph does reporting work that American reporters just won't do:

Fort Hood shooting: Texas army killer linked to September 11 terrorists

Major Nidal Malik Hasan worshipped at a mosque led by a radical imam said to be a "spiritual adviser" to three of the hijackers who attacked America on Sept 11, 2001.

Gateway pundit notes that the imam supports Nidal's murderous actions:

Cold Fury picks up on one of the most disgusting elements of MSM coverage of these attacks

We’re brushing right past the bleeding bodies of real victims to worry about the danger…to diversity! We lose sleep at night over hypothetically-possible reprisals by "right-wingers" or "white guys" or "Christianists", forgetting the actual victims while we bemoan the potential fate of non-existent future victims.

It’s sick and it’s got to stop.

That’s the Monkey Meat Media; forget the Hate Crime that’s bleeding all over your shoes and worry instead about the Mosque-Burnings that Never Seem to Materialize. Then it blows over until next time, and it’s Lather, Rinse and Repeat

Instead of going to visit the wounded at Ft. Hood, the president went to Camp David;


Why would he not go to be with those whom he is charged to send into battle and who were so horrifyingly betrayed by one of their own?

Because he doesn't give a rat's backside, that's why not

Uncle Jimbo concurs:

When faced with this heinous act, Barack Obama had a solemn duty to serve in his role as Commander in Chief and speak to the American people and the soldiers he commands. Instead he chose to spend his time pandering to a political faction and giving shout outs to members of this accepted victim group. To say this was tone deaf is not accurate, tone dead is more appropriate.That he was unaware of how improper and disrespectful this was is a perfect example of his unfitness. But he does himself one better and then decides that rather than travel to Ft. Hood and comfort the families of the dead or the wounded it is more important to stay in DC and comfort his liberal fellow travelers as they attempt to nationalize our health care system. Former president Bush and his wife found the time to visit, was Michelle too busy to serve as his proxy even? Then while comforting the afflicted politicians who were suffering the tremendous challenge of voting against the wishes of their constituents, he saw fit to disgracefully use the dead and wounded soldiers as a political prop.


Obama Doesn't "Get" the Military He Commands

For the past 8 years, we've heard a lot about how George Bush was too "cowardly" to face the consequences of war. Such bald faced lies are only possible if one is willing to ignore the eyewitness accounts of hundreds of Americans who saw him do just that - with no media fanfare and even less thanks. With every word he speaks and every act he performs, Barack Obama only strengthens the impression that he neither understands nor cares to know the military he must lead as Commander in Chief. Military families are only useful to him as hapless victims of the Bush administration because Obama's entire vision of government rests on the notion that Americans are powerless to rise above misfortune. It's not surprising he spends so little time at Walter Reed, Bethesda, or any of the military medical centers. You see, he wouldn't recognize the spirit of sturdy self reliance that is commonplace there.
