Fort Hood Shootings

Yesterday I couldn't think of an example of a political scandal that imposes costs other than financial. It's beginning to look like a military scandal has done so.

A man voices pro-terrorist sympathies and doesn't get kicked out of the Army?

Terry Lee, a retired Army colonel who knew Hasan, told Fox News about a story he heard secondhand. He said a fellow colleague had told him that Hasan had made "outlandish comments" about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and US involvement in them and that "Muslims had a right to rise up and attack Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan."

"[He] made comments about how we shouldn’t be over there – you need to lock it up, Muslims should stand up and fight against the aggressor," Lee added.

Initial claims that the gunman shouted "Allahu Akbar" during the attack seem to have been confirmed.

Nobody has confirmed this is the Nidal Hasan who made a pro-terrorist comment on Scribd - Michelle Malkin has that story among others in her bloggage.

It looks a whole lot like an Islamic terrorist attack. Or maybe it's revenge for that poor performance review.
