[Fort Hood Shooter] Nidal Hasan Wants to Join 'ISIS'


#1

From WOAI:

Nidal Hasan wants to join the terror group ‘ISIS.’

The former U.S. Army major, who is on death row at Leavenworth Kansas for the murder of 13 people at Ft. Hood in 2009, has written a letter to the brutal terrorist group telling them he wants to be part of their jihad.

In the two page handwritten letter which Hasan signs with the initials SoA, which in his bizarre worldview stands for ‘soldier of Allah,’ the former Army psychiatrist and U.S. citizen writes: “I formally and humbly request to be made a citizen of the Islamic State. It would be an honor for any believer to be an obedient citizen soldier to a people and its leader who don’t compromise the religion of All-Mighty Allah to get along with the disbelievers.”

Hasan was convicted and sentenced to death last year in the 2009 massacre, in which he jumped onto a table in a Ft. Hood mustering station, yelled ‘God is Great!’ in Arabic, and then opened fire with a later guided pistol. 13 people died and 31 were wounded.

Keep in mind that the Obama Regime deemed the incident a case of workplace violence (thus denying the survivors and the families of the dead benefits associated with being victims of terrorism).

For those who may not remember, please refer to this ABC News article from June of 2013:

Nidal Hasan Admitted Jihadist Motive, Ft. Hood Victims’ Attorneys Say

(snip)

Prior to Tuesday’s admission, and despite evidence showing Hasan had been in communication with high-profile al Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, survivors of the tragedy said they have been denied Purple Hearts and certain combat-related medical benefits because the government refuses to classify the shooting as a terrorist act. Instead, several government documents that discuss the attack refer to efforts to combat “workplace violence.”

The Defense Department has maintained that there is not sufficient evidence to prove the incident was a terrorist attack and has expressed concern that a premature designation would interfere with Hasan’s ability to receive a fair trial.

“However, now the government’s ‘workplace violence’ lie has been fully exposed,” said Neal Sher and Reed Rubinstein, legal representatives for the Fort Hood victims and their families. “By his own admission, Hasan was a jihadist who killed innocent Americans to defend the Taliban.”

“We call on the Army to… admit that the Fort Hood attack was terrorism; and finally provide the Fort Hood victims, survivors and families with all available combat-related benefits, decorations and recognition,” they said.

The Obama Regime has not changed their position on the issue since last June.

Workplace violence, eh? Only someone who went through law school could claim that with a straight face.

This does not surprise me. He seems a good candidate to be a member of the Islamic State.

It would be better for ISIS leaders to join him on death row. If your life’s work is to kill all those who will not convert to your particular brand of Islamist extremism, that would be workplace violence, wouldn’t it?
