So you are an American Army Major, sworn on oath to defend the Constitution of your nation. You are also a Muslim. You confer with terrorist sympathisers, you visit terror web-sites: you finally decide that your brand of Muslim Islam should continue making war on America, so you load up with a specially-selected Belgian-made FN 5-7 automatic pistol; you also buy, over a two-three week period, fourteen more extended-hold magazines, and packed them with 420 rounds of SS192 body-armour-piercing ammunition. Also purchased were two laser sights; one red, suitable for indoor shooting, and one green, specifically for outdoor use!
It was over at Fort Hood in 10 minutes. Hasan strode into the soldier readiness center after lunch Nov. 5 with the Five-seven tucked under his combat uniform and 16 magazines in his utility pockets. Due to Army rules, he had every reason to believe no one else would be armed.
At a 45-seat waiting area, Hasan took one of the few empty seats and bowed his head. Suddenly, he stood, screamed “Allahu Akbar!” and began spraying bullets. The pop-pop-pop-pop sounded to some soldiers like firecrackers and to others like an M-16 firing on full auto. Some said his laser sights flashed through the gun smoke like a surreal light show.
In the chaos, some soldiers realized that they’d been hit only when they saw their own blood. Others said the rounds slammed like sledgehammers or baseball bats. Bullets tumbled through flesh, shattered bone and ruptured organs. More ripped through backs, arms and necks as the wounded crawled for cover.
Hasan changed magazines too fast for anyone to overtake him. He killed two men who tried. Survivors recalled that Hasan was silent and blank-faced. One said it was as if he were walking around a mall.
Hasan took his hunt outside, and a civilian cop soon confronted him. He shot her twice, shattering her knee and hip. Her gun jammed. She thought he would finish her off. He turned away. A second police officer wounded and paralyzed Hasan.
Inside the building, investigators determined that Hasan got off 146 shots, hitting people about 60 percent of the time. Outside, he shot 68 times and hit two people. In all, about 40 percent of his bullets maimed or killed. By contrast, trained police shooting in street confrontations hit bad guys 5 to 20 percent of the time.
The President, along with the lick-spittle Pentagon, called the massacre ‘Workplace Violence’. Obama never once called the killings ‘terrorism’, never once condemned his pet religion, never once called it like it was; until the days after the San Bernadino shootings, when he perhaps realised that the truth had to come out from the White House eventually, and accepted that Fort Hood’s Major Nidal Malik Hasan was a terrorist, his actions were totally linked with terror, and the ‘Workplace violence’ scenario hadn’t really worked.
In the latest attack upon America, with pipe-bombs menacing a Marine corps charity run, and twin pressure-cooker bombs menacing a high-volume shopping and residential area, which anyone with at least double IQ figures would have instantly recognised as a ‘terror attack’; slow-speaking and possibly slow-witted Mayor de Blasio stated it was “intentional,” but he added “there is no evidence at this point that there is a terror connection.” He also said that “there was no credible specific threat to New York.” So three bombs are set, two explode; and yet there is ‘no credible threat to New York’.
I presume if he had been in charge on September 11, 2001 when those two jets slammed into the World Trade Center skyscrapers, it would have been filed as ‘pilot and navigator error’!
