Major Nidal Malik Hassan

Malik Nidal Hasan

My father was a WW II veteran who served in the European theater.  He
carried shrapnel in his back from a grenade ’till the day he was buried (ten
years ago).

I am a seven year veteran of the US Navy with a 40% service connected
disability.

Our son-in-law (Sgt Buddy James Hughie) was KIA by a Taliban sniper in
Afghanistan.  Buddy was awarded two Bronze Star medals with Valor and a
Purple Heart medal. In fact after Buddy’s death there was a FOB established
in the area where he was killed and named in his honor, “FOB HUGHIE.”

We currently have a twenty-three year old nephew serving with the 114th MPs
in Mosul, Iraq.

Major Hassan (an army officer serving on active duty) takes the time to pick
out his weapon, fills out the necessary paper work, goes back and purchases
the fire arm, adds a scope to increase his chances of kill shots, goes to a
firing range to make sure he can operate his killing weapon proficiently,
chooses a place where military men and women are massed together, picks a
time of day when those service members will be gathered waiting, gets
dressed in traditional Muslim attire, loads his killing weapon in his
vehicle, drives to his chosen killing field, gets out and begins killing
UNARMED American service men and women while shouting terms associated with
Muslim Extremist Terrorists.

So other than Major Hassan’s US Army officer active duty status what sets
him apart from other terrorists?

Our family has sacrificed a great deal for our country.  Our family will
continue to sacrifice, serve and defend the Constitution of the United
States of America.

Please do not spit in our face and tell us you are giving us a bath.  We
know the difference.

    I know, I know. What a sad state of affairs. I just don’t even know what to say about this. I’m speechless and you know that doesn’t happen often.

    Joy: Sad doesn’t even begin to describe the depth of depravity of this single act. But I know what you mean.

    Michael,
    I totally agree on this one. This ‘soldier’ is a Murdering terrorist. Period. There is no other explanation for his actions. I really don’t even have the words to express my anger about this.
    I don’t know if you knew, but we live about 30 minutes from ft. Hood. In fact, my husband was at work in the ER that day at Darnell hospital (on base) and was one of the many doctors, along with nurses and other staff, who cared for the victims. It is amazing how the community came together after this tragedy.

    Jenny: I can not even imagine how your husband felt after all the comotion subsided and he had a chance to think about what had just happened. I mean this is only supposed to happen on foreign soil in time of war!

    Yes I knew of your connection. And I would expect nothing less than a tight knit military community gelling at a time like this. People who have never been in the military just can not completely understand the comradery.

  3. We didn’t know what happened at first. We driving our way through Texas and saw all the flags at half mast. I ended up calling my brother to find out and was horrified.

    I will say that I am incredibly proud of the courageous action taken by local law enforcement, especially Sergeant Kimberly Munley.

    mssc54 replied:

    Hayden: Your comment made me think about something. You were riding along happy as a lark. The terrorist attack had already taken place. You received the information about all the innocent people who had been killed.

    So in this exercise we have to determine: Was it the incident that caused your feeling of horrow: Or was your horror caused by receiving the information of all the innocent lives taken?

    And yes, hats off to local law enforcement!

    Right on target with your analysis! This country needs to see this for what it is…Islamic Terrorism. It is time for the Muslim clerics to hold press conferences all over America and set the record straight if indeed Islam is a peaceful” religion (which I dispute). Their silence says something to many people out here. Until we start challenging the root of all this terrorism and stop being PC, we will continue to open ourselves up to these terrorist tactics.

    If bald, baptist, white guys over the age of 50 were doing these things, I would profile that group as well. It is time to SEE what really is happenning!

    mssc54 replied:

    Sevant: It’s okay with me if people choose to die for their god. However any so called god who requires his/her followers to kill for him just seems so (obviously) fake. Once a person is dead they have no chance to join “the ranks.”

    None are so blind as those who refuse to see.

    Michael- Thanks for taking the time to post this one. Political correctness is another term for being brain dead in my neck of the woods.

  6. Becky says:

    I hate that the warning signs were ignored, or just not reported because anyone who was suspicious about remarks he made, from the lowest rank on up…was scared that they would be labeled and reprimanded for not being PC…I really hate that the first statements released from people in authority in our country, no matter what field they were in, was…’now let’s don’t be mean to the muslims’…The US has VERY FEW citizens who would go and hurt innocent muslims! The gall of the media and White House mouthpieces! But for our leaders not to recognize the danger of their political correctness gone amuck.., or worse, to actually know what is going on and not do anything about it, is betrayal of public trust in my humble opinion.

    mssc54 replied:

    Becky: If you look at the most basic component of what most people are calling political correctness it is about money. People did not want to say anything for fear they would be branded intollerant, a biggot, paranoid or profiling. What that really means is that they were in fear of not being able to advance their career (ie make more money). They would rather risk the lives of their brothers and sisters in arms than risk the chance of their making more money for themself and their family. So in the end it gets right back to worshiping money. How sad is that.

    I just saw this story on on ABC of all places..they must be getting wise to ratings! Money again! Sorry if you’ve already mentioned this story.
