OK, that's not exactly what the President said, the word jihad will probably be avoided by the WH and the press entirely. What we will get is the usual vicimization of the cold blooded killer. The media wil search and search for a motive. Was he picked on for being Muslim? Did he have a troubled personal life? Was he against the war? Was it mental illness?
Although those questions should be asked, they shouldn't surplant the apparent case for jihad. If it's true that Hasan, a "devout Muslim", wrote this on his blog acompanied with a link to an article supporting suicide bombing, then the motive is clear. The ruthless murder of 12 was a premeditated act of Islamic terror, and it should be reported as such.
Atlas- Hasan was reportedly happy about the Muslim solider who shot and killed a soldier and wounded another at a Little Rock Military recruiting station. Hasan said Muslims should rise up against the aggressors. Maybe we should have more of these.....strapping bombs on and going into Times Square".
ksl reports that Hasan shouted "Allah Akbar" as he opened fire. A rally cry for Islamic terrorists.
In the meantime, let's pray for the families of Ft Hood.
