The Face of an American Terrorist

Several days after the terrorist attack at Fort Hood the media is still walking the line of political correctness.

President Barrack Hussein Obama, in all his presidential bumblings cautioned against jumping to conclusions. His cautionary note was I suppose in all political reality, a wise one. At least for his political future, for now.

It was so effective not a single media outlet save FOX NEWS allowed any reference to the possibility the attack was that of a terrorist.

The definition of terrorize? 1: to fill with terror or anxiety: SCARE 2: to coerce by threat or violence. By this definition it is for certain the acts committed by Nidal Malik Hasan were acts of terror.

The very fact the media, the military, and the government would not make reference to Nasan's atrocities for what they in fact were is in and of itself frightening.

The era of political correctness has such a stranglehold on the nation one has to question the sanity of not only our leaders, but the media and the organizations charged with safeguarding our safety and liberty.

While it would have certainly been pre mature to claim the acts of terror by Hassan were religiously motivated at the time they occurred, why is an accurate description of them wrong at any point in time? Simply, and for no other reason than the desire to maintain political correctness at all costs as determined by the government media complex. This is a slippery and dangerous slope.

As the investigation continues indications are Nasan is a devout Muslim, and may have developed radical leaning sympathies for the Islamic cause, which is to say world domination of religious faith and destruction of western civilization.

Some recent quotes appearing today.

New York Times; “I’m going traveling,” “I won’t be here tomorrow.” Nasan allegedly told a fellow worshiper at a mosque. Nasan was also heard to say “Allahu akbar,” he said — “God is great.” as he opened fire killing 13 people and wounding 38 others.

ABC News; Senator Joseph Lieberman said "If Hasan was showing signs, saying to people that he had become an Islamic extremist, the U.S. Army has to have a zero tolerance,"

WSJ;" Senator Joseph Lieberman said Nasan was a "self-radicalized, home-grown terrorist" who had turned to radical Islamic extremism while under personal stress.

The investigation must go on. It must do so in an objective and scientific manner. At the end of the process our government, and the media, must be willing to call the reality Nasan'a horrific act for precisely what it was. Political correctness and posturing be damned.

The brave officer who took this purveyor of terror down is a real hero. Because of her brave and decisive action the lives of possibly many others were saved. So as a nation who mourns the loss of more of its brave troops, lets give thanks to Officer Munley for her bravery.

And let us hope for a swift and proper judgment on a horrific person who took it upon himself to claim the lives of honorable and innocent people for a reason he apparently saw as justifiable.
