Thoughts on the Pentagon's investigation in the Hasan case?

WASHINGTON – Several officers failed to use "appropriate judgment and standards" in overseeing the career of Army Maj. Nidal Hasan and their actions should be investigated immediately, according to the military's investigation into the November Fort Hood massacre.

A report released Friday says that commanders must be encouraged to look for cues that could prevent a similar attack.

"The report raises serious questions about the degree to which the entire Department of Defense is prepared for similar incidents in the future, especially multiple simultaneous incidents," Defense Secretary Robert Gates said.

According to two officials familiar with the case, as many as eight Army officers could face discipline for failing to do anything when Hasan displayed erratic behavior early in his military career. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because that information has not been publicly released.

  • I think that everyone is SO scared of being called racist or accused of profiling that legitimate extremists cases are being ignored so no one gets sued or called an ugly name. When catholic priests were found to have been molesting children EVERY priest was painted with a bad brush and looked at much more closely. Somehow THAT was ok (I dont have a problem with a closer look at ALL) but to do the same think with a person who suddenly converts to Islam and begins communications with a KNOW extremist Imam isnt? There will be MORE of this unless someone gets the PC people under control!

  • I think that everyone is SO scared of being called racist or accused of profiling that legitimate extremists cases are being ignored so no one gets sued or called an ugly name. Thats a lame bull shit ass excuse...What racial bias is saying this guy is psychotic? he is not doing his job? If you read the entire story you would see that there was such outrageous disreguard for safety of our soldier BY OUR OWN MILITARY..This man should have NEVER gotten as FAR as he did and with WEAPONS on a military base


    When catholic priests were found to have been molesting children EVERY priest was painted with a bad brush NO, the church was because of their role in it. it isn't about the individual priest, it is their POLICY about the RAPISTS and the VICTIMS

  • "To me, what he did certainly was using terror at its worst," the official said, defining terrorism as the use of violence to promote political beliefs. The official spoke to reporters on condition of anonymity in order to provide insight into the administration's discussions.

  • not a SNAP Judgement
    ______
    Yeah cause the police acted stupidly lmao!

    It is because of PC they witness people report suspicious activity then the person whom was reported files a complaint to their superior or better a law suit claiming discrimination. For FEAR of having a stripe taken away, or for FEAR of owing some jackass "damages" for being cautious really turns people away from reporting.

    Example:Six Muslim men removed from a plane last fall after being accused of suspicious behavior are suing the airline and threatening to sue the passengers who complained — a move some fear could discourage travelers from speaking up when they see something unusual.
