“Alleged” Ft. Hood Shooter’s Salary: $278,000. His Victims? No Terrorist Victims Benefits.

Written by Gary North on May 22, 2013

Major Hasan has not been convicted of doing anything amiss in 2009. So, he receives his paycheck. But what about his court martial? One of these days, Real Soon Now.

Were there witnesses? Lots. Were there dead bodies? Thirteen. Wounded? Over 30. Then what’s the problem? Public relations. There will be witnesses called who will reveal that the U.S. Army did nothing when they knew he was in regular email contact with a known Al Qaeda recruiter.

In his first email to the Islamic cleric, he asked if Islamic law allowed him to kill American soldiers. Was this a red flag? Of course not. It was just a soldier seeking spiritual guidance. It happens every day.

It’s better to let sleeping dogs lie. It’s better to let bygones be bygones. Out of sight, out of mind.

Meanwhile, the survivors are being denied combat pay benefits. Also, they were not victims of a terrorist attack. They suffered from “workplace violence.”

Hasan “went postal” I guess. The Army’s response? “Return to sender.”

This is bureaucracy at work. This is Pentagon justice.

The conservative movement ever since 1946 has given a blank check to the Pentagon. They believe that “it’s my Pentagon, right or wrong.” But the nature of the Pentagon is seen in this case. It is paralyzed. It cannot bring itself to try this case. It cannot bring justice to victims. It prefers to look stupid, when the alternative is looking impotent.

And so, Major Hasan’s paychecks keep coming.

My prediction: he will not make lieutenant colonel. Other than this career limit, who knows? This is the Army, Mr. Jones.

  1. Phillip the Bruce says:

    Is Hasan a terrorist? Of course! He's in the US military, isn't he?

    • jsccats says:

      No, he is a terrorist because he is a muslim! You know, a member of the "religion of peace" (depends on what the meaning of "peace" is apparently).

    • Sinatra98 says:

      How in the hell does this piece of dirt continue to get paid, i have a disability WC from NY and they don't pay me didley 17 years fighting for my rights and this crap gets it because he is a muslim dirt bag.

    • Virgil_Hilts says:

      Phillip…are you REALLY that obnoxious and ignorant…or are you just pretending in order to draw attention to yourself?

    • Sinatra98 says:

      "O" says it was a workplace incident, and this piece of crap continunes to get paid, what the hell is wrong with the lawmakers in this country this garbage should be tarred and feathered

  2. way to go chimp dick-tater praise a killer and shit on our soldiers

    • Seymour Kleerly says:

      Racist, dumb Conservative!!!

      • Seymour, you may recall that the previous president was called a smirking chimp. Not racist in that case, I guess.

        • Seymour Kleerly says:

          If Right Wingers had not compared Blacks to chimps over the last 400 years, you'd have a point!

          • SumerianMan says:

            Maybe, if most blacks didn't act exactly like chimps they wouldn't have been so compared, or maybe you didn't notice

          • Seymour Kleerly says:

            If you're just following Right wing media, that's all you'll see. Ignorant Racists like you have doomed the republican party. It's sad.

  3. General George Casey, U.S. Army Chief of Staff at the time of Hasan's deadly attack on the very soldiers under Casey's command, had this to say on Meet The Press:

    "Our diversity, not only in our Army, but in our country, is a strength. And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse…"

  4. Ignatius says:

    Where are all the military-worshipping Republicans on this comment section? Nothing to say? Cat got your tongue?

    • Ignatius, you beat me to it. It was my great pleasure to reduce your negative score by one. Hey, Repubs, I used to be one of you. You really need to read Gen. Smedley Butler's book War is a Racket. If you're not convinced by what he has to say, there's no hope. The PTB are gaming you with that false Dem-Repub scenario, and you're falling for it. I'm all in favor of a strong national defense, but the military quit being a defensive force just about the time they changed the name from the War Dept. to the Dept. of Defense. Haha–go figure. We should be like the rattlesnake on the Gadsden flag, or like the Swiss, who've maintained their freedom by having the whole nation armed and prepared for any invasion.

    • I think your lost this isn't the Huffington Post

  5. In the old days punishment was fast and No Diversity; today it is the opposite because it is a muslim ; Unity is Power but only a few are United …so you know the rest of the story.

  6. WHY are practicing Muslims in our military to begin with? Although not many people are yet ready to hear it, the answer is quite simple: Because of Amendment 1's polytheistic provision for the freedom of religion. Shortly after Amendment 1 was ratified, America was transformed from what was predominately a monotheistic Christian nation in the 1600s to the most polytheistic nation to exist, with the possible exception of the Roman Empire. In other words, the genesis of the Ft. Hood massacre was Amendment 1!

    For more, see online Chapter 11 "Amendment 1: Government-Sanctioned Polytheism" at http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/BlvcOnline…. Then find out how much you REALLY know about the Constitution as compared to the Bible. Take our Constitution Survey and receive a free copy of the 85-page "Primer" of "Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective." The survey will be found in the right-hand sidebar.

    • The real purpose of the First Amendment was to prevent the Government interfering with the free exercise of the Christian religion; i.e. they wanted to avoid the "Church of England" experience. It was never meant to introduce non-Christian religions to the United States.

      • Yes, that certainly played a part in the First Amendment. However, that's only half the story as it pertains to both Amendment 1 and Article 6. The other half is seldom told. For example, have you ever heard about the Jewish influence that was involved in the banning of Christian test oaths in Article 6? You can find documentation about this in Chapter 9 "Article 6: The Supreme Law of the Land" at http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/BlvcOnline….

  7. jsccats says:

    The reason this has been going on so long is because Dear Leader Mufti Obama and his administration are very fond of radical muslims except for the few he plays video game drone killer with. This attitude has become pandemic in the military and in other alleged "national security" agencies most of which appear too busy looking for "radical Christians" and TEA party people who are the real enemies of the administration and the "progressives'.

  8. Hasan should be taken out and shot! (with bullets covered in bacon grease!) Over 200K for a Major?

  9. Dale Hogue says:

    It is possible that Major Hasan is being protected by our Muslim president. How else can this be explained?

    • BrooklynResident says:

      He’s waiting for his last day in office. So he may pardon him.

    • rubygirl50 says:

      obama thinks "out of sight, out of mind". The American people will forget about Hasan. This is so far from "workplace violence" as an event can be. He should have been suspended without pay until trial and hopefully conviction.

  10. Sounds to me like it is time for the families of those dead and injured to hire an attorney and hold the government accountable!
    As long as these families are willing to "let bygones be bygones" nothing will be done to this terrorist… and he will get free everything he needs for his care plus a nice stash of cash! NO. It shouldn't be this way, but it is. There is no justice unless these families demand it.

    • BrooklynResident says:

      If they get the ACLJ, they will get somewhere. And within a short time.

      • I am surprised that some attorney hasn't contacted these families about the terrorism commited by Hasan against their families. Take that money away from him and pay it to his victims! This dirtbag is being protected by the regime and rewarded!

        The Seal Team 6 families are suing because they can't get any "answers" from the government. These guyes were "outed" by Hussein and Biden. They were executed with permission of this regime, IMO. Families were upset that the government let an Imam pray over their bodies before all the bodies were creamated (instead of being sent home to their families for burial.) This Imam condemned their souls to Hell and praised the terrorists for "winning." Goggle it to see the video of the prayer and its translation to English. This was treason to our country and our best of men!

  11. Abe Simpson says:

    They can't even get this Iman to shave for his trial. I think its a crime that the members of the armed forces can not carry private concealed weapons on base. If they can't be trusted with weapons who can? As far as this major he won't stand trial while the other Muslim is in office.

  12. Thank you, Gary, for being so brutally blunt and honest regarding the nature of our military bureaucracy. The commenters seem to be riding their own personal hobby horses without any discussion of your main point. It's as though they're studiously avoiding the issue. Keep saying it, Gary. Maybe you'll eventually get through.

  13. Hey folks, in case you missed it–and it really sounds like you did–I'm reproducing Gary's main point here:

    "Were there witnesses? Lots. Were there dead bodies? Thirteen. Wounded? Over 30. Then what’s the problem? Public relations. There will be witnesses called who will reveal that the U.S. Army did nothing when they knew he was in regular email contact with a known Al Qaeda recruiter.

    It’s better to let sleeping dogs lie. It’s better to let bygones be bygones. Out of sight, out of mind.
    Meanwhile, the survivors are being denied combat pay benefits. Also, they were not victims of a terrorist attack. They suffered from “workplace violence.”
    Hasan “went postal” I guess. The Army’s response? “Return to sender.”
    This is bureaucracy at work. This is Pentagon justice.
    The conservative movement ever since 1946 has given a blank check to the Pentagon. They believe that “it’s my Pentagon, right or wrong.” But the nature of the Pentagon is seen in this case. It is paralyzed. It cannot bring itself to try this case. It cannot bring justice to victims. It prefers to look stupid, when the alternative is looking impotent.

    Reread it, and comment on THAT.

  14. What likely happened was: Hasan is an Army psychiatrist. His patients are US soldiers (most likely all of whom are on SSRI's and various other psychotropic drugs) who are not coping with the role of "bad guy" in the Mideast, where they are being ordered to commit atrocities and war crimes daily against the civilian population, yet are forbidden by military law from revealing to the world what they have seen and done. Just look at what the Army is doing to Bradley Manning.

    As part of "Stop Loss" these soldiers were probably told they were being re-deployed instead of let go, so they flipped out and starting shooting up the base (a few eyewitness accounts have already leaked out that there was more than 1 shooter at Ft. Hood). Since the government and corporate owned media cannot dare to let the truth out that this entire Mideast campaign is based on lies (and more soldiers are dying from suicide than from the Taliban or "Al Qaeda"), Hasan was conveniently demonized since he is a Muslim. Like Tsarnaev he will never get his day in court or his side of the story heard, because it is demonize-the-Muslim-world-all-the-time in America, to get the peasants fired up to invade Iran, the ultimate goal of why we are "over there".

    • I really don't care about "excuses for the government" when it comes to Hasan and his shooting of unarmed soldiers!
      And I really don't care hearing someone… "blame the victims" either!

    • Chelyn Shaw says:

      Danno, there were LOTS of witnesses, and numerous American soldiers murdered & wounded by that enemy from within, that infiltrator. And you are going on about Hasan being "conveniently demonized since he is a Muslim"?! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOUR BRAIN?!!! There is NO JUSTIFICATION to justify what Hasan did. And NO JUSTIFICATION for OBAMA(another enemy from within) refusing to call it a terrorist attack BECAUSE HE & Hasan ARE MUSLIM BROTHERS, causing the families of the Americans murdered to be denied terrorist victim benefits while the enemy gets paid. WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!

  15. Shavis Irons says:

    This low-life should have been tried, convicted and executed, by firing squad, within 120 days! Done!

    If the trial revealed government stupidity, under the color of political correctness, that should have been addressed and steps put in place to see that it never happens again. Done!

    Government and judicial efficiency are oxymoron's that will be the ruination of our country.

  16. http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=05b_1368132734

    You can see the video of the Imam prayer and its English translation. It is unbelievable that this was allowed at the burial ceremonies of these Seals.

    It will make you mad. The treatment of Hasan is in the same category. The injustice is unimaginable.

  17. Sue him for wrongful death so he gets zero

  18. ken1lutheran says:

    And Joe McCarthy was concerned about who promoted Peress? This is Peress in spades, doubled and redoubled.

  19. Corsica says:

    Is there a fund for the Ft Hood victims that one can contribute to? Since our fkg gov't spits on them, it's up to us civilians to help out.

  20. johnny ringo says:

    Ive read afew comments here that are favorable towards this muslim wacko and this is what I have to say to them: Go screw yourself and if it weren't for that loosed MONKEY IN THE WHITEHOUSE THIS SOB would have been tried and hung out to dry by now, you sound like a libtard so you must be the enemy of freedom and if you haven't fought for this country you wouldn't running your mouths !!!! So if your going to sound stupid be stupid and shuffle your ass on over to huffington " OH" BY THE WAY GO PHUCK YOURSELF A$$ HOLES ******

  21. HD Wood says:

    Americans have to first come to grips with who Obama really is. That would include his background along with his beliefs. I feel that once the public accepts the fact that he practices a form of Communism at that point he will wither away. Right now he's seen as hip. Shows how shallow we are as a people.
