And I suppose that no Muslims joined under Bush.
Please, this is not helpful, I heard his family say he tried to get out of the service since 2001. Maybe that is true, maybe not. We all need to wait for the truth to come out, last night I heard that the shooter was dead, that turned out not true. I heard yesterday that there were 3 shooters and they had M16's, that also was not true. Patience is what is needed here. Blaming any president, no matter their party afiliation is nuts. MHO
Lisa I understand that it might be kinda hard for you to follow along....I said nothing about Muslims joining the military...The lax enlistment standards were blaimed for THIS MUSLIM getting through...My post was a simple reminder that THE MUSLIM WHACKO WHO DID THE SHOOTING had joined before Bush's lax enlistment standards were put in place.

It was reported by the AP and other new sources that the larges amount of troops were killed in this October then in any month that we have been in combat.
More kill under under Obama. and now another terror attack on our home land.
I am afraid that this FT. Hood shooting is just the beginning for more attacks in the US. He lived in Loudoun County and went to VA Tech
Why has so many of Islamic moved into the area by drove.
Northern VA is a melting pot for Middle Eastners
The 9/11 terrorist got their drivers licenses in Ashburn VA. The DMV was closed in Loudoun County for months after that. The DNV employees were mostly Middle Eastners. Get the picture. N.VA and DC will be a target next. I worked in the County and saw the transformation and moved elsewhere
They are saying now that the shooter had radical ties in Jordan
and radical Islam.
All followers of Islam are evil. They have given their silent approval terrorism.

actually you are wrong...this is the 3rd Jihad...the 3rd attempt to 'make Islam the ONLY faith in the world'...the other two attempts were unsuccessful.
Provide the facts...

I can point out many attacks, hostage taking, etc. Its not the 3rd. Many attempts have been made.

What a tragedy!!

Thoughts and prayers to everyone.

I hope the injured make a speedy recovery, and the metal anguish that was witnessed, will be manageable in the future.

Talk about losing your sense of security.

No intel is ever 100%....if that was the case then nobody would ever be caught
The Sudanese offered to arrest Bin laden and extradite him to the Saudi Arabia then eventually to the US..What any of that has to do with the BS you just tossed out their about civilain deaths..

Of course. I am a active COL in the Army and a former Brigade Commander. I for one know intel is never 100% however, when you conduct an individual operation (covert operation/secret) intel must be 90% or higher for a specific political target.
You thought process is intel fighing a conflict. Targeting a person (in a specific operation) is much different with different ROE (Rules of Engagement)

This thread should not be about blaming the President. Obama is not to blame for this. If he is to blame then Bush is to blame for 9/11. This guy has been under investigation since March, 2009. He should have been under investigation since 9/11...but he was not. If he had been these people would still be alive today.
I watched a security tape of him wearing his Muslim costume. That should have been grounds enough to kick his a$$ out of the Army...but unfortunately, it was not.
I think you need to check when he in fact joined the military/
He was under investigation BY the FEDS for 7 months. Our soldiers pointed out red flags but they were ignored.
Now since the president is the Commander in Chief of the Military just who do you think is responsible.
The speech he gave was one of discern and showed no emotion.

Well said. Timothy McVeigh and the Fort Hood shooter both went off the deep end over their strongly held beliefs. Different motivations, but they resulted in the same evil act.

Excellent! You're ALMOST ready for martial law. Just one more false flag operation and you'll be welcoming soldiers on the streets:

"THE PHILIPPINES: HOW A CONSTITUTIONAL DEMOCRACY WAS TRANSFORMED INTO A DICTATORSHIP WHILE NOBODY WAS LOOKING - Stephen Segall

"In 1969, Ferdinand Marcos was re-elected president of the Philippines. He spent the next several years creating a state of terror and panic in his homeland by referring to the omnipresent but invisible communists and radical Muslims amongst themselves who were said to be a threat. The Filipino people were whipped into a fear frenzy, and no place was safe from the invisible menace everywhere.

“Finally, Marcos made his move and, in 1972, with his second term as president nearing a close, he declared martial law. With his terrified people’s blessings, he seized “temporary” dictatorial control of the fledgling democracy. The country was in a state of siege he said. He used his military to “protect” his people from these alleged enemies. And he abolished Congress and disenfranchised the courts. He made all decisions alone, without counsel, just as his people had hoped he would do. After all, the people felt that they needed a strong, agile leader unencumbered by checks and balances to get the job done. And they were certain that he was on their side and would restore democracy as soon as the threat was vanquished.

"Martial Law was to be for a few weeks or months in order to restore order to the nation. His people trusted him because he was a self-proclaimed man of God and he was their president, obviously a patriot whose motives were beyond question. One must always trust the president, right? Who else should you trust? Dissenters were considered unpatriotic, un-Filipino. Their dissent was said to give aid and comfort to the enemy and it was not tolerated. Called traitors, they were silenced to the cheers of mob.

“Many were spirited off without counsel and interred in the custody of military tribunals as enemy combatants. Most of those were never seen again, presumably murdered in secret. Along the way, patriots such as Senator Benigno Aquino in 1977 were summarily convicted of treason. He escaped the country in 1980. When he returned from his self-imposed exile in 1983, he was mysteriously gunned down on the airport tarmac. They never caught the “terrorist” or “Communist” responsible. It is assumed that Marcos ordered the hit of his chief critic and political rival. Sic semper tyrannis.

"There never was a significant hostile Communist threat to speak of. The claims about Communists were exaggerations calculated to create maximal fear. So how long do you think this ‘temporary’ state of affairs (for the good of the people) lasted? Six months? Two years? Keep going.

"Marcos never relinquished control of his dictatorship voluntarily. There were no further legitimate elections, just rigged ballot exercises. The once independent Congress had been converted into a spineless rubber-stamp parliament that never disagreed with or even criticized the president. That would have been unpatriotic at first, and downright suicidal later. It wasn’t until 1986 that Marcos’ fascist regime was deposed and martial law was finally ended. Republican rule was restored to the islands and Marcos fled in exile. Most of the world refused to give this ruthless dictator sanctuary, but he did finally find one sympathetic world leader and a place to retire in freedom and luxury for the remainder of his natural life. I leave it to the reader to discover where on his own."

2.- They have no loyalty to America but to Islam
3.- They want to destroy America and kill us all.
4.- They are in league with Muslim Obama and Pelosi.
5.- We must act or we all going to be killed.
