“We Have Won!!! All-Praises be to All-Mighty Allah!” came the cry as the American forces departed Afghanistan in disgrace.
Was this a Taliban commander at the controls of an American Apache helicopter? Or perhaps a Taliban fighter brandishing the latest American assault rifle? No, it was Leavenworth inmate Nidal Hasan, a former major in the U.S. Army who called himself a “soldier of Allah.”
In 2009, Hasan was communicating with al Qaeda terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki about killing American soldiers, then shipping out for Afghanistan. The FBI knew all about it but did nothing to stop Hasan. On November 5, 2009, at Fort Hood, Texas, Hasan gunned down 13 unarmed American soldiers and wounded more than 30 others.
For the composite character president David Garrow described in Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, it was not terrorism but “workplace violence,” not even a punishable offence in the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). The composite character, formerly known as Barry Soetoro, failed to name a single victim and on subsequent anniversaries held no special ceremony to honor the victims’ families.
Hasan was sentenced to death in 2013, but the sentence was not carried out. In 2014, the president declined to meet with Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford, who took seven bullets from the soldier of Allah. If the president ever visited any victims’ families, nothing has come to light.
After the 2009 attack, vice president Joe Biden said, “Jill and I join the President and Michelle in expressing our sympathies to the families of the brave soldiers who fell today. We are all praying for those who were wounded and hoping for their full and speedy recovery. Our thoughts and prayers are also with the entire Fort Hood community as they deal with this senseless tragedy.”
Joe Biden failed to name a single victim or explain how they “fell.” For the Delaware Democrat, it was just a senseless tragedy, not an Islamic terrorist attack, an atrocity, or even a crime. Hasan’s mass murder of Americans, in solidarity with the Taliban, failed to prompt any investigation into how many other “soldiers of Allah” might remain in the ranks.
As Lessons from Fort Hood confirms, the Washington office of the FBI called off surveillance of Hasan. It remains unclear whether anyone in the FBI was disciplined, demoted or dismissed over a failure that claimed 13 lives. This invites a comparison with Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Biden’s military shared intelligence with the Taliban, and gave them a list of Americans still trapped in Afghanistan. Biden also hired the Taliban for security at the airport, which facilitated the terrorist bomb that claimed 13 American lives.
In his delayed response to the atrocity, Joe Biden mumbled something about his late son Beau but mentioned not a single American victim by name. As with Fort Hood, Biden held no special event at the White House and showed little if any concern for the victims’ families. On the other hand, Biden did ramp up one of the composite character’s worst policies: targeting his domestic opposition as the primary threat to the United States.
For example, in 2009 DHS boss Janet Napolitano released Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment. This document warned of “white supremacist” types that reject federal authority. This was code for anyone less than worshipful of the composite character, particularly those who value their constitutional rights. In 2021, such embattled Americans mighty consider the Biden Junta’s Interim National Security Strategic Guidance (INSSG) report, a replacement for the Trump strategy.
As a serving U.S. military officer and Iraq veteran notes, the Biden INSSG gives priority not to external enemies but challenges from within, including “inequality” as the primary threat. “Domestic violent extremism” gets a workout and “economic” concerns are mentioned 34 times. That marks a contrast to 15 times for China, and five for Russia, both nuclear-armed adversaries of the United States.
The Biden INSSG mentions “diversity” seven times, and “climate” a full 27 times. Observing the Col. Scheller case, and the DOJ jihad against parents, the officer concludes “we have an administration that believes the greatest threats are those citizens who disagree with the administration’s agenda.”
As with Communist China, Biden appears to believe the Taliban are “not bad folks,” and worthy of partnership. One of their early allies was Nidal Hasan, who gunned down 13 unarmed Americans, including Pvt. Francheska Velez, who was pregnant and died crying “my baby!” For the composite character it was workplace violence and for Joe Biden the Americans only “fell” in a “senseless tragedy.”
Twelve years later, Hasan claims “we have won!” That tells other soldiers of Allah in the ranks that, under the Biden Junta they can murder American soldiers with impunity, keep their own life, and live on for the terrorist cause.
