Dave Michaels / Dallas Morning News: Fort Hood shootings suspect may have wired money to Pakistan
WASHINGTON – Authorities have been examining whether Fort Hood massacre suspect Nidal Malik Hasan wired money to Pakistan in recent months, an action that one senior lawmaker said would raise serious questions about Hasan's possible connections to militant Islamic groups.
Rep. Pete Hoekstra, R-Mich., said sources "outside of the [intelligence] community" learned about Hasan's possible connections to the Asian country, which faces a massive Islamist insurgency and is widely believed to be Osama bin Laden's hiding place. [...]
May have? MAY HAVE? How about that he DID wire money to Pakistan, slick!
From Fox News:
Army psychiatrist Major Nidal Hasan was charged Thursday with 13 counts of premeditated murder in last week's Fort Hood mass shootings.
Hasan, 39, is suspected of killing 13 of his comrades Nov. 5 when he opened fire at a soldier processing center at the Army base in Killeen, Texas. He was charged in the military's legal system, making him eligible for the death penalty.
The Army Criminal Investigation Command formally announced the charges against Hasan at Fort Hood Wednesday afternoon.
"We are aggressively following every possible lead," said Chris Grey with the Army's Criminal Investigation Command, adding that additional charges are possible.
Hasan will be tried in the military's court-martial system. Prosecutors will likely seek the death penalty, the maximum sentence he faces. The minimum is life in prison.
Executions of military defendants are very rare.
President Barack Obama ordered a review of all intelligence related to Hasan, and whether the information was properly shared and acted upon within government agencies.
"We have a duty and obligation to protect the constitutional rights of everyone involved," Grey said. [...]
The one charge IS the unborn child.
Thank G_d, someone is looking out for us.
Good on Hoekstra - he knows what he is dealing with. Obama and Holder will go to extraordinary lengths to obfuscate jihad. Their policies aid jihad, as they have dismantled many of Bush's safeguards. [...]
AMEN! I sure hope he is strung up on a rope.
