Remember Fort Hood: Three Years Later

by CASSY | NOVEMBER 5, 2012

Three years ago today, there was a jihadist attack on Fort Hood perpetrated by Major Nidal Hasan. Michelle Malkin has the names of those murdered, which included one soldier’s unborn baby:

  1. LTC Juanita Warman, 55, Havre de Grace, Md.
  2. MAJ Libardo Caraveo, 52, Woodbridge, Va.
  3. CPT John P. Gaffaney, 54, San Diego, Calif.
  4. CPT Russell Seager, 41, Racine, Wis.
  5. SSG Justin Decrow, 32, Plymouth, Ind.
  6. SGT Amy Krueger, 29, Kiel, Wis.
  7. SPC Jason Hunt, 22, Tillman, Okla.
  8. SPC Frederick Greene, 29, Mountain City, Tenn.
  9. PFC Aaron Nemelka, 19, West Jordan, Utah
  10. PFC Michael Pearson, 22, Bolingbrook, Ill.
  11. PFC Kham Xiong, 23, St. Paul, Minn.
  12. PVT Francheska Velez, 21, Chicago, Ill. and her unborn baby
  13. Michael G. Cahill, Cameron, Texas [civilian]

It still breaks my heart thinking of Pvt. Velez especially, who cried out for her baby as she lay dying.

A pregnant soldier shot during a rampage at a Texas Army post last year cried out, “My baby! My baby!” as others crawled under desks, dodged bullets that pierced walls and rushed to help their bleeding comrades, a military court heard Monday.

A soldier had just told Spc. Jonathan Sims that she was expecting a baby and was preparing to go home, when the first volley of gunfire rang out Nov. 5 in a Fort Hood building where soldiers get medical tests before and after deploying.

“The female soldier that was sitting next to me was in the fetal position. She was screaming: ‘My baby! My baby!’” Sims said.

It’s pretty much a known fact for anyone with more than two brain cells in their head that the attack on Fort Hood was a terrorist attackHasan had plenty of evidence against him there. He defended suicide bombings and said that Muslim service members were justified in killing US troops. He was in contact with Anwar al-Awlaki, one of the world’s most notorious terrorists. And what did they discuss? Carrying out jihad in the United States.

Yet Barack Obama continues to classify this attack as “workplace violence”.

Shame on him.

How can there be shame on someone who is shameless?

If there was ever a time for the Commander-in-Chief to change the designation away from the idiotic “workplace violence” tag to something which would allow the award of Purple Hearts to the victims of Nidal Hasan’s deliberate attack on American soldiers, Veterans’ Day would be that time.

I do not understand why he does not; it isn’t as though doing so could somehow inflame passions of the Muslims around the world against the United States more; we are at war against the Islamists, and are actively killing them in Afghanistan, directly, through combat, and in Pakistan via the occasional drone attack against al Qaeda leaders. We sent SEAL Team 6 into Abbottabad, Pakistan, to eliminate Osama bin Laden, and we used unmanned drones in Yemen to kill Anwar al-Awlaki and then his son,Abdulrahman al-Awlaqi, though the actual target at that time was (supposedly) Ibrahim al-Banna, an Egyptian al Qaeda operative. The Muslims know that we are at war with the Islamists, and the American people know that we are at war with the Islamists, and there is really no reason at all not to designate the Fort Hood massacre as an Islamist attack on our soldiers.

THE FIRST STREET JOURNAL salutes our veterans on Veterans’ Day, and as much as I can speak for our host here, TRUTH BEFORE DISHONOR does as well.

Celebrating The 64th Anniversary Of The Rebirth Of Israel

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/04/24

I’m on Arutz-7’s mailing list. I get Israel News Network mailings and mailings from some of their advertisers. And intentionally so. I got an email from people who want to teach me Hebrew online (and I would love to learn the Holy language of Hebrew but have neither the time nor the financial ability currently) announcing the celebration of 64 years after Israel’s “birth” which is, actually, Israel’s rebirth since Israel herself is thousands of years old. In that email was an offer of free Israel photos if I fill out a form. I did so. Beautiful photos.

"A land flowing with milk and honey."

Turning the desert wasteland into life-sustaining land.

Thriving Tel Aviv on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea

Israel's Capitol yesterday, today, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow.

Turning barren wasteland into a land teeming with life.

64 years ago, Jewish people who had suffered one of the most aggressive attempts to annihilate Jewry in the history of the world came flowing into their ancient homeland against all odds and against the wishes of the international community. From that point until today, and continuing onward into the future, Israel has had to defend herself from the massively superior — both numerically and in firepower — enemies in the region and across the world who want nothing short of the total annihilation of Israel and Jewry. And Israel has been extraordinarily successful, beyond that which is even remotely humanly possible. Because Adonai is with them. Because Yahweh will not allow His Chosen People to be extinguished. Period. (Full stop, for those using The King’s English.) Not only has Israel succeeded beyond human capacity in defending herself from all her foes wishing her total destruction, she has also turned a barren, life-killing desert wasteland into “a land flowing with milk and honey.”

Barren land that Israel gains becomes agriculturally rich and self-sustaining land in very short time. And the reverse is also true. Land that Israel has turned into agriculturally rich and self-sustaining land; land that Israel has turned into money-making tourist destination; land that Israel has turned into economically booming land; that land, when turned over to Israel’s enemies in the hopes of shalom become barren once again. But it becomes worse than when Israel possessed it as it is not only barren, but filled with the ruins of a previously highly successful society, all the while housing large numbers of people who are absolutely incapable of sustaining themselves, but are only intent on eliminating Israel and Jewry from the face of the world map.

When Israel gained control of the Gaza Strip in a self-defense war to keep herself from being wiped off the map, the Gaza Strip was a barren desert that could not, at all, sustain life. Israel made it “a land flowing with milk and honey.” When Israel turned it over to the Palestinian terrorists in the hopes of shalom, the Palestinian terrorists who had no desire at all for shalom not only destroyed the land’s ability to sustain the people but also turned it into a terrorist haven from which to further its hate-filled goals to kill all Jews and to destroy Israel.

Israel pumps hundreds of millions of gallons of the life-blood of all peoples — fresh water — into lands that don’t have that life-blood, lands that want nothing less than for Israel to cease to exist and for all Jews to be eradicated, in the hopes for shalom. Israel is prosperous because of her people’s blood and sweat. Israel is an agricultural behemoth because of her people’s blood and sweat. Israel is a massive exporter of fresh water because of her people’s blood and sweat. Israel is in existence today despite the gargantuan odds against her because of her people’s blood and sweat. And all of this also because Providence will not let those who curse Israel — His Chosen People — succeed.

Israel, a land roughly the size of New Jersey, has succeeded against all human and Satanic odds against her, yet she only wants shalom. She has given up massive chunks of land for shalom. She has given up the Golan Heights for shalom. (The Golan Heights are Israel’s Sudetenland (see: Hitler and Czechoslovakia).) But all the nations surrounding Israel, all the Communist nations, all the Liberals in the US, especially Barack Obama and the absolute nutball Ron Paul, are arrayed against Israel. They have absolutely no desire for shalom in Israel. They want Israel dead.

“I will bless those that bless you and curse those that curse you.” — The Almighty, speaking to Israel.

Editor Of Popular Internet Magazine Dead At 25

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/09/30

Samir Kahn, 25, was born in Saudi Arabia but grew up in New York. He later returned to the Middle East and began publishing the popular e-zine “Inspire” in an effort to educate English-speaking youth in world politics by speaking in their own vernacular.

I can’t do this. I can’t sanitize this dirtbag. Dude was a Mohammedan terrorist, a major cog in Al Qaeda, and at war with the US, and the rest of the civilized world for that matter. “Inspire” e-zine was a Mohammedan terrorist propaganda program intent on getting more young Americans and other young westerners to commit acts of Mohammedan terrorism against the West. Dude is buzzard food, and rightly so. The first attack missed him but the second one got him. Some other Mohammedan terrorist also bought it in the drone attacks, and his name was…

Anwar al Awlaki.

The American born Al Qaeda leader in Yemen. The man with ties to Mohammedan terrorist and mass murderer Nidal Hasan. The man who plotted the underwear bomb, the cargo plane “computer printer” bombs, and many other Mohammedan terrorist attacks and attempts. He got fried, along with several of his body guards. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

From Ed Morrissey:

Awlaki has a long history of terrorism against the US. At first considered a moderate cleric — the Bush administration invited him to the Pentagon as part of their outreach program after 9/11 — he became a suspect in the 9/11 attacks after at least three of the hijackers were traced to his mosque. Awlaki fled the US and eventually masterminded the Christmas Day underwear plot in 2009 as well as a later plot to destroy cargo airplanes bound for the US, and at least inspired the Fort Hood massacre and other so-called “lone wolf” attacks.

Assuming that Awlaki is really dead, though, this could be a bigger operational deal than getting bin Laden. Awlaki’s group, AQAP, was by far the most active internationally among AQ affiliates, and his intimate knowledge of the US made him a dangerous foe. His death won’t be the end of AQ’s attempts to create home-grown jihadis and infiltrators, but it will make that task a lot more difficult.

But RS McCain notes some serious sanitizing going on in the mainstream media. (Is anyone surprised?) The New York Times called Awlaki a “preacher,” then waited until paragraph 24, when a large percentage of people would have quit reading, to note the guy was Mohammedan. Couldn’t call him a “Muslim cleric” to start out, now, could they? CBS called him an alleged, suspected, reportedly terrorist. Ya think?

Professor Jacobson reports on all the usual Leftist suspects crying in their lattes over the fact the Al Qaeda leader who was at war with the US was killed instead of taken to court. He was at war, and violating the Geneva Convention in the process. He knew the risks in going to war with the US — you get dead — and did it anyway.

Michelle Malkin has this to say to the Leftist whiners and victimologists:

Obama’s far left flank will be unhappy if the mission to kill Awlaki, an American citizen, was successful. They will again decry such drone strikes against American citizens as unprecedented and lawless.

On this, I will come to Obama’s defense.

Awlaki’s membership and leadership in al Qaeda is undisputed.

We are at war.

The Supreme Court set the precedent for Obama’s and our military’s actions in 1942.

I’ve referred before to the Quirin precedent.

She goes on at great length to shred the Leftist whiners. You should read it.

On the death of Samir Khan, Michelle had this to say:

Whoa.

Fresh reports that a second U.S. jihadi was killed in the drone attack that allegedly took out al Qaeda spiritual guru Anwar al-Awlaki.

His name will be very familiar to longtime blog readers.

It’s Samir Khan[.]

I repeat: God bless our military.

***

My friends at top counterjihad blog The Jawa Report have been on Khan for years and helped shut down several of his jihad-inciting blogs after tracking him across the Internet (he went by the name “Inshallahshaheed”).

In 2007, I noted Khan’s death threats against the founder of The Jawa Report, who goes by the nom de blog Rusty Shackelford[.]

And Michelle goes on to provide a very good history lesson on the now dead dirtbag “Inspire” editor, including his manifesto. You should read it.

Good riddance to bad rubbish. Two Mohammedan terrorist leaders dead, many more to go.

Hot Air Headlines brings an NBC report that insane nutcase “Ron Paul condemns Awlaki Assassination”. This is why you will never be President, Ron Paul.

Federal Prosecutor A Little Loose With The Facts?

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/09/29

RS McCain said US Attorney Carmen Ortiz’s statement was “curious.” You might say that. Her statement?

I want the public to understand that Mr. Ferdaus’ conduct, as alleged in the complaint, is not reflective of a particular culture, community or religion.

What are the allegations against Rezwan Ferdaus?

Plotting to strike the Pentagon and the Capitol with C-4 filled remote-control planes.
Attempting to supply Al Qaeda with materials to be used to attack US military.

Sounds like a particular culture and religion to me.

He turned mobile phones into IED switches and passed them on to undercover agents he thought were feeding the switches to Al Qaeda. And he was pleased when he was told, falsely, that the IEDs harmed US soldiers. He was warned his devices could cause death or injury to women and children but that didn’t bother him.

RS McCain also notes the CBS article title:

Mass. musician accused of D.C. terrorist plot

So, what words did CBS offer from this “Massachusetts Musician?”

[H]e repeatedly told the agents that he was driven to kill Americans which he called “enemies of Allah.”

Because all musicians from Massachusetts want to kill American enemies of Allah, right? No. He’s a Mohammedan terrorist, like the underwear bomber, the New York City bomber, Nidal Hasan, the 9-11 attackers, the previous WTC bomber, the Fort Dix plotters, etc, etc.

The Boston Globe article linked above didn’t say anything about Carmen Ortiz’s political affiliations, so I did some digging and was shocked — shocked, I tell youwith what I found. (Do you believe me? Heh.)

The more difficult task, she and others say, is to sustain the attention on her office with the work she vowed to do when US Senator John Kerry and the late Senator Edward M. Kennedy nominated her for the post.

She has instituted a diversity hiring committee. And she works to serve as a role model for women and minorities.

Ortiz welcomes the scrutiny and even the criticism, saying it’s one of the reasons she has sought to stay in the public’s eye.

It’s what she promised Kerry and Kennedy, as she recounts a heartfelt conversation with the late senator in which she told him she would “make him proud.’’ She keeps a photo of Kennedy’s old Washington, D.C., office near her desk, among mementos of her accomplishments.

“He was enormously impressed by her, her life story,’’ said Eric Mogilnicki, Kennedy’s former chief of staff, who met with Ortiz recently. “She’s no stranger to the ups and downs of life, so I’m very confident she’ll be able to handle whatever the future holds for her.”

I do believe that wouldn’t make her a Conservative or a Moderate, but I’m just guessing here. And I wonder why the Boston Globe wouldn’t see fit to note who nominated her for her job. If a Republican nominated her, I’m sure that would have been noted.
