Kudos to Joe Lieberman for not turning away from the truth. There appears to be quite a bit of denial on the left as to Hasan being a terrorist, even though we have strong evidence of his ties to radical Islam.
From The Wall Street Journal:
Mr. Lieberman, appearing on "Fox News Sunday," cautioned that it remained too early to draw any definitive conclusions. He said his comments were based on "reports that we are receiving" about Mr. Hasan's actions and comments.
The Army's top officer, Gen. George Casey, wouldn't rule out that the shooting was an act of terrorism, but cautioned against speculation at this point. "We all want to know what happened and what motivated the suspect, but we need to … let the investigation take its course," he told ABC News's "This Week."
Mr. Lieberman said that if news reports were true that Mr. Hasan had turned to Islamic extremism, "the murder of these 13 people was a terrorist act and, in fact, it was the most-destructive terrorist act to be committed on American soil since 9/11."
"We don't know enough to say now, but there are very, very strong warning signs here that Dr. Hasan had become an Islamist extremist and, therefore, that this was a terrorist act," Mr. Lieberman added.
I fail to see why we should all shy away from the obvious. Hasan clearly was involved with radical Islam. What we should be doing is finding out how this guy was able to hide in plain sight for so long.
Aunt Amelia brought up Political Correctness hampering the investigation in the comments section here. I believe she is correct that PC could easily demoralize our troops and is probably the main reason why Hasan was not removed from the military sooner. Political Correctness has no place in war or the military, deadly consequence will always be the result.
