oNE SMALL QUIBBLE. can we refer to this terrorist as Hasan or the terrorist?  He deserves no Title, not even pvt E-1.
Those of us who actually earned a grade, no matter how modest, are iffitated as hell every time "Maj." is placed in front of the POS's.  Or is it only me?

One, we start being Americans again. We get involved locally in politics, no more apathy on elections.
(This is general,I have a sneaky suspicion that the members of CC are labeled as "chronic voters" and are more actively engaged.)

We treat people as people,period.

case in point, why do you have Hate crime laws for a special group - Matthew Shepard, when the crime
was heinous to begin with? In Texas when James Byrd was murdered , no hate crime, just crime and the three involved will get their justice. (2 death penalties and 1 life in prison.)

Point is, Hate knows no one gender,race, creed or religion.

What Hasan did was a pure act of terror,....and the sooner we recognize that, the quicker we'll see that people hate Americans for no other reason other than they are being taught that.

Army Chief of Staff
A fellow Army doctor who studied with Hasan, Val Finell, told ABC News, "He would frequently say he was a Muslim first and an American second. And that came out in just about everything he did at the University."

Finell said he and other Army doctors complained to superiors about Hasan's statements.

"And we questioned how somebody could take an oath of office…be an officer in the military and swear allegiance to the constitution and to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic and have that type of conflict," Finell told ABC News.

When Hasan has his general court martial, there can be only one verdict:

Guilty, on all counts of premeditated murder.
Guilty, on all counts of conspiracy.
Guilty, on all counts of attempted murder.
Guilty, on all counts of whatever other charges are forthcoming.

And there can be only one sentence:

Death, in accordance with Article 118 of the UCMJ.
Adams E2 Euphonium (built in 2017)
Boosey & Co. Imperial Euphonium (built in 1941)
Edwards B454 bass trombone

This is what I don't understand.

Islam is the religion of peace, according to the stupid and uninformed.

So why is anyone that calls themselves a Muslim in the military in THE FIRST PLACE????

So when they ban all Muslims from joining up, aren't they respecting the claims "they are PEACEFUL" people!"

So, after 9/11, Bush  & Co. kept us safe for 7 years...Just 11 months into the Bronze statue's presidency, we have a terrorist act on a US Military base(or post).

I fear this may just be the beginning..and US al Quaeda cells are going active.

When I went to my Navy schools way back in 1975, there were Kuwaiti, Arabic, Iraqi, and Iranian students that the Navy was training to work on airplanes. With exception of the Kuwaiti, all of the others ALWAYS caused problems on the base. Didn't like them then and still don't.

I almost reached across the coffee table and slapped my television when Chris Matthews did a "so he called Al Quaeda, what we're not supposed to call people anymore?..that means nothing" 

Yes, he said this. :hammer:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: "Well, look, we -- we have seen, in the past, rampages of this sort. And in a country of 300 million people, there are going to be acts of violence that are inexplicable. Even within the extraordinary military that we have -- and I think everybody understands how outstanding the young men and women in uniform are under the most severe stress -- there are going to be instances in which an individual cracks. I think the questions that we're asking now and we don't have yet complete answers to is, is this an individual who's acting in this way or is it some larger set of actors? You know, what are the motivations? Those are all questions that I think we have to ask ourselves. Until we have these answers buttoned down, I'd rather not comment on it."
Video at the link.

This is after we all knew about the attempts to contact Al Qaeda, and the calls to hi former Imam.

Someone with actual knowledge clue me in please...but I was under the impression that if a member of the military were known to have ties to a radical imam (I know, redundant) and known to have contacted Al Qaeda, then maybe that individual would be, like, closely watched?  Confronted maybe?  Investigated?  Instead, this sad sack was about to be deployed!  What gives?

Supposedly he was investigated by the FBI, and the military was notified. His correspondence with the Imam was deemed to be related to a research paper he was writing on PTS.  How a fanatical Imam would have valuable knowledge of PTS is my question.
