Despite the rash of information connecting Fort Hood Jihadist Nidal Malik Hasan to terrorist entities, our POTUS and the mainstream media still refuse to call the shooting and act of Islamist Terror.
Their version of the story is, he was upset at the pressures of being an Army Psychiatrist and the prospect of being sent overseas to fight against other Muslims. He faced horrible discrimination from other soldiers, Major Hasan asked the Army to let him out of his service as a conscientious objector. When the Army said no, he snapped, went crazy and started killing.
Of Course the record shows that he never asked to be let out of the Army and every day there is a new revelation about his terrorist connections.
This morning we find out that Authorities have been examining whether Fort Hood massacre suspect Nidal Malik Hasan wired money to Pakistan in recent months, The Dallas Morning News is reporting:

Rep. Pete Hoekstra, R-Mich., said sources “outside of the [intelligence] community” learned about Hasan’s possible connections to the Asian country, which faces a massive Islamist insurgency and is widely believed to be Osama bin Laden’s hiding place.
Hoekstra, the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, would not identify the sources. But he said “they are trying to follow up on it because they recognize that if there are communications – phone or money transfers with somebody in Pakistan – it just raises a whole other level of questions.”
Much remains unknown about the 39-year-old Hasan, born in Virginia to Palestinian immigrants. He lived alone near the Army base in Killeen, Texas, and would sometimes use a neighbor’s computer even though he had his own.
“With what I know about Hasan to date … I would expect we will learn more about him that will make us concerned,” Hoekstra said, “rather than information that says, ‘Oh man, we got that all wrong and this had nothing to do with terrorism.’ ”
Hasan’s finances have been a mystery since last week, when the Army major and psychiatrist allegedly shot and killed 13 colleagues at the sprawling Central Texas military base. Hasan earned more than $90,000 a year and had no dependents, yet lived in an aging one-bedroom apartment that rented for about $300 a month.
“You can bet there is an ongoing, extensive investigation into every single financial transaction he made,” said Matt Orwig, a former U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Texas who has no direct knowledge of the Hasan case. “Federal investigative agencies are very good at tracing the flow of money, both to him and from him.”
….Matthew Levitt, director of counterterrorism and intelligence at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said wire transfers to Pakistan would be “extremely significant in terms of a potential network for this particular case.”
Tracing money to Pakistan could be easy if Hasan used a formal bank or wire service. It would be more difficult if he sent money under another name or used an informal channel known as hawala that is popular in Pakistan and doesn’t involve paperwork.
“If it turns out the person was radicalized to the point he was sending money to other insurgents or other terrorists, that takes it to another level still,” Levitt said.
Wiring money to Pakistan, connections with other terrorists, giving lectures calling for infidels to be beheaded, I don’t understand how this is not enough evidence to call this a terrorist act. Me thinks the liberal terrorism apologists are a bit full of…well you know.
