Official Conservative Party of Canada spokesperson Fred "Gay and Right" Litvin is all about the conspiracy theory:
Ft. Hood terrorist linked to 9/11 terrorists...
Shouldn't we start calling him a terrorist???
Hasan, the sole suspect in the massacre of 13 fellow US soldiers in Texas, attended the controversial Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Great Falls, Virginia, in 2001 at the same time as two of the September 11 terrorists, The Sunday Telegraph has learnt. His mother's funeral was held there in May that year.
The preacher at the time was Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born Yemeni scholar who was banned from addressing a meeting in London by video link in August because he is accused of supporting attacks on British troops and backing terrorist organisations.
Ohmigod, what a monster, carefully biding his time all those years, planning, plotting, deviously putting his nefarious plan into action to ... to ... um, what exactly was he doing all that time? Oh (emphasis tail-waggingly added):
Last night Hasan remained in a coma under guard at a military hospital in San Antonio, Texas, and was said to be in a "stable" condition. Born in America to a Palestinian family, Hasan, 39, was an army psychiatrist who had chosen to sign up for the US military against his parents' wishes.
But he turned into an angry critic of the wars America was waging in Iraq and Afghanistan and had tried in vain to negotiate his discharge.
Ah, the well-established terrorist tactic of trying to get as far away from the enemy as possible. Does the evil of these people know no limits?
AFTERSNARK: I'm guessing neither Fred nor his overtly racist commenters managed to read far enough into that Telegraph article to appreciate this embarrassing revelation:
What does seem clear is that the army missed an increasing number of red flags that Hasan was a troubled and brooding individual within its ranks.
"I was shocked but not surprised by news of Thursday's attack," said Dr Val Finnell, a fellow student on a public health course in 2007-08 who heard Hasan equate the war on terrorism to a war on Islam. Another student had warned military officials that Hasan was a "ticking time bomb" after he reportedly gave a presentation defending suicide bombers.
Maybe it's just me, but I get the feeling that someone in a position of military authority has some serious 'splainin' to do.
