Fort Hood report shows FBI ignored warning signs on Hasan, lawmaker says

The FBI was too concerned about political correctness and did not launch an investigation into a man who was later charged with killing 13 people in a 2009 attack at the Fort Hood military installation in Texas, despite significant warning signs that he was an Islamic extremist bent on killing civilians, according to a lawmaker briefed on a new report about the terrorist attack.

In emails to a known terrorist, Army Maj. Nidal Hasan expressed his support for suicide bombings and killing civilians, while the terrorist, Anwar al-Awlaki, encouraged Hasan to stay in touch, Republican Rep. Michael McCaul, told The Associated Press on Wednesday after he was briefed on the findings of a new review of the attack.

It seems they’re saying because Hasan was doing research, had a military membership, and being an “American Muslim” he was excused from the FBI’s usual routine of harassment and surveillance. When someone communicates with labelled terrorist and expresses his support for suicide bombings and killing civilians, what usually happens to them?

And in contrast, when Occam’s razor is placed in the hands of unskilled agents and their supervisors, they have been known to operate on the wrong subject.
