    Subj: Tragedy at Ft Hood


    For those of you who don't know, Col. Allen West is
    running for U.S. Congressman Ron Klein's seat in
    Florida . Attached is his article regarding the
    shootings at Ft. Hood , Texas .


    Please take a few minutes to read what he wrote.




    Tragedy at Ft Hood

    Lieutenant Colonel Allen West (US Army, Ret.)




    This past Thursday 13 American Soldiers were
    killed and another 30 wounded at a horrific mass
    shooting at US Army installation, Ft Hood Texas .
    As I watched in horror and then anger I
    recalled my two years of final service in the Army
    as a Battalion Commander at Ft Hood, 2002-2004.


    My wife and two daughters were stunned at the
    incident having lived on the post in family housing.

    A military installation, whether it is Army, Navy,
    Air Force, Marine, or Coast Guard, is supposed
    to be a safe sanctuary for our Warriors and
    their families. It is intended to provide a home
    whereby our Band of Brothers and Sisters can
    find solace and bond beyond just the foxhole but
    as family units.

    A military installation is supposed to be a place
    where our Warriors train for war, to serve and
    protect our Nation.

    On Thursday, 5 November 2009 Ft Hood became a part
    of the battlefield in the war against Islamic
    totalitarianism and state sponsored terrorism.

    There may be those who feel threatened by my words and
    would even recommend they not be uttered. To
    those individuals I say step aside because now is
    not the time for cowardice. Our Country has
    become so paralyzed by political correctness
    that we have allowed a vile and determined enemy
    to breach what should be the safest place in
    America , an Army post.

    We have become so politically correct that our
    media is more concerned about the stress of
    the shooter, Major Nidal Malik Hasan. The
    misplaced benevolence intending to portray him
    as a victim is despicable. The fact that there
    are some who have now created an entire
    new classification called; pre-virtual
    vicarious Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
    is unconscionable.

    This is not a man caused disaster. It is what it
    is, an Islamic jihadist attack.
    We have seen this before in 2003 when a
    SGT Hasan of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault)
    threw hand grenades and opened fire into his Commanding
    Officer’s tent in Kuwait .
    We have seen the foiled attempt of Albanian Muslims
    who sought to attack Ft Dix, NJ. Recently we
    saw a young convert to Islam named Carlos
    Bledsoe travel to Yemen , receive terrorist
    training, and return to gun down two US Soldiers
    at a Little Rock , Arkansas Army recruiting station.
    We thwarted another Islamic terrorist plot in North
    Carolina which had US Marine Corps Base, Quantico
    as a target.

    What have we done with all these prevalent trends?
    Nothing.

    What we see are recalcitrant leaders who
    are refusing to confront the issue, Islamic
    terrorist infiltration into America , and possibly
    further into our Armed Services.
    Instead we have a multiculturalism and diversity
    syndrome on steroids.

    Major Hasan should have never been transferred to
    Ft Hood, matter of fact he should have been
    Chaptered from the Army. His previous statements,
    poor evaluation reports, and the fact that the
    FBI had him under investigation for jihadist
    website posting should have been proof positive.

    However, what we have is a typical liberal approach to
    find a victim, not the 13 and 30 Soldiers and
    Civilian, but rather the poor shooter. A shooter
    who we are told was a great American, who loved
    the Army and serving his Nation and the Council
    on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) stating
    that his actions had nothing to do with religious
    belief.

    We know that Major Hasan deliberately planned this
    episode; he did give away his possessions. He
    stood atop a table in the confined space of the
    Soldier Readiness Center shouting Allahu Akhbar,
    The same chant as the 9-11 terrorists and those
    we fight against overseas in the Iraq and
    Afghanistan theaters of operation.

    No one in leadership seems willing to sound the
    alarm for the American people; they are therefore
    complicit in any future attacks. Our Congress
    should suspend the insidious action to vote on a
    preposterous and unconstitutional healthcare bill
    and resolve the issue of protecting the American
    people.

    The recent incidents in Dearborn , Michigan , Boston ,
    Massachusetts , Dallas , Texas , and Chicago ,
    Illinois should bear witness to the fact that we
    have an Islamic terrorism issue in America .
    And don’t have CAIR call me and try to issue a
    vanilla press statement; they are an illegitimate
    terrorist associated organization which should be
    disbanded.

    We have Saudi Arabia funding close to 80% of the
    mosques in the United States , one right here in
    South Florida, Pompano Beach . Are we building
    churches and synagogues in Saudi Arabia ? Are
    Kaffirs and Infidels allowed travel to Mecca ?

    So much for peaceful coexistence.

    Saudi Arabia is sponsoring radical Imams who enter
    into our prisons and convert young men into a
    virulent Wahabbist ideology. One resulting
    in four individuals wanting to destroy
    synagogues in New York with plastic explosives.
    Thank God the explosives were dummy. They are
    sponsoring textbooks which present Islamic centric
    revisionist history in our schools.

    We must recognize that there is an urgent need to
    separate the theo-political radical Islamic
    ideology out of our American society. We must
    begin to demand surveillance of suspected Imams
    and mosques that are spreading hate and
    preaching the overthrow of our Constitutional
    Republic¦ that speech is not protected under
    First Amendment, it is sedition and if done
    by an American treason.


    There should not be some 30 Islamic terrorist
    training camps in America that has nothing to do with
    First Amendment, Freedom of Religion. The Saudis are
    not our friends and any American political figure
    who believes such is delusional.


    When tolerance becomes a one way street it certainly
    leads to cultural suicide. We are on that street.
    Liberals cannot be trusted to defend our Republic,
    because their sympathies obviously lie with their
    perceived victim, Major Nidal Malik Hasan.


    I make no apologies for these words, and anyone
    angered by them, please, go to Ft Hood and look
    into the eyes of the real victims. The tragedy at
    Ft Hood Texas did not have to happen. Consider now
    the feelings of those there and on every military
    installation in the world. Consider the feelings
    of the Warriors deployed into combat zones who
    now are concerned that their loved ones at home
    are in a combat zone.


    Ft Hood suffered an Islamic jihadist attack, stop
    the denial, and realize a simple point.


    The reality of your enemy must become your own.

    Steadfast and Loyal,
    Lieutenant Colonel Allen B West (US Army, Ret)


    Remarks accompanying the original message:
    Maybe we should have Colonel West running for a higher
    office. His hammer hits the nail squarely.


    If you agree, pass it on. If not, so be it.

    Somehow, something has gone terribly awry!
    It's "Unconscionable" to have had this occur on our soil.
    We will never learn all the facts, why no one that had the information shared it with those that could have or should have stopped this long before it ever got started....
    Reminds me of the "blame game" following 9/11.
    I guess no one got the "memo"?
    Bull!
    It's all about the current administrations policy of "Political Correctness"!
    "Don't ask and Don't tell" ain't gettin' it done slick!
    How many agencies do we have now that are 3 or more initials that are in charge of doing nothing?
    23? 27? More?
    Yeah I feel safe!
    Wonder what Janet Napolitano and the DHS has to say about "Their" part in all of this?
    I know, I'm being a radical, extremist, far right, astro turf nazi!

    Col. West speaks so truly! While we haven't had any 'major attacks' by terrorists on our soil since 911 (of anything like that scale), THIS is still a Islamic Jihadist attack, as the good Colonel says. We have had many of these smaller attacks, but the MSM will NOT call a spade a spade. We are in a WAR, and the enemy is now on our own home ground. WHEN are we going to stand on our hind legs like MEN and FIGHT!? maddd

    he's been right down the road from me and has an entire floor to himself with armed guards. Must be nice, to bad the sick and hurt that need that floor will just have to wait.....

    I do contract security work in Iraq, and have worked side by side several Iraqies, and I will tell you there are several over there who are decent people. One even went out of his way to get me a guitar in Baghdad while I was there, then wouldn't let me pay for it. I've noticed the more intelligent are usually the more reasonable, with any religion. But I will say, if I was there I would have made sure to put a bullet in his head..
