FBI Probe Targets Islamic Extremists in US Army

Yahoo! News, June 25, 2012

The FBI is investigating more than 100 suspected Islamic extremists in the US military, following the 2009 “lone wolf” attack by an alleged Al-Qaeda sympathizer that killed 13 people at a Texas army base, a news report said.

About a dozen of the cases are considered “serious” threats involving suspects believed to be actively planning attacks or in contact with dangerous extremists, National Public Radio reported.

The potential internal threats come from active duty military as well as reserves and civilians with access to military installations, the radio broadcaster reported.

In November 2009, US Army Major Nidal Hasan opened fire on his fellow soldiers at a base in Fort Hood, Texas, killing 13.

An investigation revealed that Hasan was in contact with Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical Yemeni American imam tied to Al-Qaeda.

  • OTOH, we finally have an admission from Official America that this was an act of terrorism obo The Religion of Peace.  The Pentagon still is loath to admit this.

      QD,

      The military is in pretty much an impossible situation with regards to hiring ‘diversity’ in all it’s wicked splendour while maintaining cohesion within the resulting training system so that you don’t wash the little darlings out (as once was the stated goal of military training everywhere because they didn’t want the boo-hoo brigade).

      That said, we need to be careful of a regime which starts to crack down on our military as this could lead to defacto politicization (as in commisars and daily PC double-good indoctrination) which would outright halve the armed forces overnight.

      The kind of men who join to be warriors (i.e. as a career) will not put up with blocked career paths, constant shooting gallery deployments where they are not allowed to use proper force -and- a system which uses extremist terrorism to instigate a system of restrictive political oversight.

      And that is the Ill Wind feeling that I get from the current situation.  There’s always a secondary motive when action to clean house comes from outside the armed forces themselves.

  • Muslims in the army ?  Audie Murphy must be spinning in his grave.

    • Major

      Add Patton and my own reasons for retiring from my beloved Corp to that too.

    can someone help please? about 4 days ago on 1010 wolb out of Baltimore the channel of al sharpton two hosts a female black and a male black were disrespecting the memory of agent BRYAN TERRY killed by weapons involved in fast and furious. the female stated (not exact quote but close) “that white guy that was killed…. whatever his name was…” in a very derogatory tone. it actually made me sick. they were discussing the  f and f scandal and made this statement. they could not remember TERRY’S name and inferred  it did not matter that he was killed he was white. if you can forward these sentiments to some police groups or veteran groups boarder patrol police etc i would appreciate it. i guess i could try to get transcripts but have not looked into it. but i KNOW WHAT I HEARD. THANK YOU

    Ok, now if Blacks are the fifth column, and Hispanics the sixth column, I gues Islamists are the seventh column??  Hard to keep up, we have so many competing new masters for America.

    In an intense moment — just after Major Nidal Hasan’s murderous rampage — the U. S. Army Chief of Staff illustrates the quick thinking that vaulted him through ranks to the pinnacle of themilitary establishment:

    “Our diversity, not only in our Army, but in our country, is a strength.  And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse.” Army Chief of Staff General W. George Casey, Jr. three days after Major Nidal Malik Hasan killed 13 U. S. soldiers and wounded 32 more on Nov. 5, 2009. (“General Casey: Diversity Shouldn’t be Casualty of Fort Hood,” Reuters, Nov. 8, 2009)

    One can almost imagine, decades ago, the young Casey’s superiors — when he was a mere 2nd lieutenant — saying, “That boy is going places.”

    What a specimen!

      Our nobility is our strength. Because it gives us the _Common not Diverse_ level of trust to do the right thing, even when it means absorbing losses against the wrong kind of people.

      That doesn’t mean we don’t cut the necrotic flesh from the wound and move on with our unified system of beliefs however.

      The Elites of this world want to conflate Nobility (as social altruism) with their own agendas of adventurism and for-profit domination of the planet.

      Because they cannot achieve this without, not only our permission but our active permission.

      And so they try this ‘inclusiveness’ advertising ploy as a means to make it seem like the characteristic is only true if we apply it to the agenda.

      Their Agenda.

      In reality, there is nothing terribly unique about looking out for one’s own at a greater than nuclear family level. It is simply the way that all societies greater than pack animals are created.

      But there is much to be said -against- forcing one population to adopt another’s characterisitics and treat them as their own, simply because we egotistically insist upon seeing our own image mirrored in other’s dissimilar attitudes.

      How arrogant.  How lacking in self confidence.  How foolishly imprudent.

    Using the words Islamic, extremist, and serious threat in the same context is clearly evidence of racist White privilege and proves that we need to “do more” InterFaith Diversity Dialogue with our Diverse InterFaith Partners.

    • IKantunderstand

      And clearly, the use of the expression “lone wolf”  and National Public Radio, indicates a severe threat by a Timothy MacVeigh wannabe. We are under such a threat by racist White privileged White guys, I yearn for compulsory InterFaith Diversity Dialogues with our vibrant Diverse InterFaith Partners. 

    • White privilege is due to 30 points higher avg IQ being worth more than sickle cell disease allowing blacks to survive malaria due to whites bringing medicince for malaria.

    Is this a real probe….or just a way of making Osama…I mean, Obama look like his is getting tough on terrorists in this ELECTION year?

    One of the members of my high school graduating class (2007) was a Muslim Pakistani-American who was accepted to the US Naval Academy.  He ended up being part of a PC controversy during the 2009 World Series. 

    World Series fans were going to be treated to an all-White, all-male Naval Academy color guard, but at the last minute two of the midshipmen in the color guard were replaced in the name of diversity–one by a White woman, and the other by the Muslim from my graduating class.  To make a long story short, he forgot part of his uniform in Annapolis and was unable to participate in the color guard.

    That being said, I have no idea if he is/was an extremist.  I went to his parents’ convenience store a few times (walking stereotype alert!), and I went to his house once, but I didn’t know him very well.  I would LOVE to find out if he is on the FBI’s list.  Talk about having stories to tell!

  • ncpride

    That such a probe is even necessary just shows what a mess we’ve gotten ourselves into with this diversity is our strength nonsense.

  • Why are Muslims in our military to begin with? Yet another byproduct of the multiculturalism and diversity mandate our government insists is our “greatest strength. “

    Sometimes the announced aim of a probe or investigation is a cover for the actual aim.   I
    would not be too surprised if, underneath this announced focus,  there was not an FBI
    scrutiny of Scientology in the U.S. military.  ??

      In 2009 a high level fox in charge of guarding a chicken coop ate all the chickens. It was later found out he was in contact with Foxy-Al-Alackbar-Fox of the extremist chicken eating faction of Foxlam. Gullable McNobrains of the National association of chicken farmers says he has no idea how this could have happened and has announced his chief advisor Foxwolf McChickeneater will be launching a full investigation.

      Innocentia Al-Akhbar-peacemaker, spokesman for the moderate Foxlam organisation Religion of Peace (s of chicken we bought at walmart), has expressed concern about a backlash against innocent foxes that are just here for a better life.

      General PC Clueless was quoted as saying “We have searched high and low for the elephant in the room and we can not find it. We are now certain it does not exist and have advised the President we simply just have to institute more laws and take away more freedoms and make life more unpleasant for everyone…. Oh yeah, and more diversity too.

  • Michael C. Scott

    Who is the FBI kidding?  We know full well that even if they manage to identify uniformed Islamist radicals in this dog-and-pony show, they will do nothing whatever, all while continuing to lie under oath to have “militia” suspects held without bond on trumped-up charges.

    J7,

    >>

    Wat Tyler had the right idea in 1381.

    >>

    Errrrm, which would that be?

    Presenting a charter of demands to the King, beheading the Arch Bishop or taking an unorganized rabble to the field where, upon his murder by agents of the king during a parley, they found a sudden need to be elsewhere?

    >

    Reacting to the introduction of the oppressive poll tax, which the king had imposed because not enough income had been collected the previous year, Tyler led a mixed group “a very great number of [whom] were not simply peasants but village craftsmen and tradesmen” (The Peasants Revolt of 1381, R. B. Dobson, ed.), in taking Canterbury, before advancing on to Blackheath, outside London. Tyler then entered the city of London at the head of a group estimated at numbering over 50,000. After crossing London Bridge without resistance, the rebels then gained entry to the Tower of London and captured Simon Sudbury, the unpopular Archbishop of Canterbury, before proceeding to behead him and several of his followers. During subsequent rioting, the rebels also destroyed the Savoy palace that belonged to the Duke of Lancaster, John of Gaunt (who was the king’s uncle). Richard of Wallingford presented a charter to King Richard II on behalf of Tyler. The king met the rebel army at Mile End and promised to address the people’s grievances, which included the unpopular taxes.

    Death and rout

    Twenty thousand people assembled at Smithfield. Richard II agreed to meet the leaders of the revolt, and listen to their demands. Wat Tyler decided to ride out alone and parley with the king. What was said between Tyler and the king is largely conjecture and little is known of the exact details of the encounter; however, by all accounts the unarmed Tyler was suddenly attacked without warning and killed by the Lord Mayor of London, Sir William Walworth, and John Cavendish, a member of the king’s group. This unprovoked betrayal of the truce flag and Tyler’s killing threw the people into a panic. Not being organized as a military force, they broke ranks and began to flee for their lives.

    The problem with the Peasants’ Revolt vs. todays situation is that people actually believe that those who ‘represent them’, whether as a people’s hero or as their nominal betters in Congress and the Presidency, somehow have their best interests in mind. And this means that they believe that a will to demand change is the same as the ability to achieve it ‘with words as a warning’. The Occupy Movement proves where that kind of idiocy gets you.

    Indeed, a Peasants’ Revolt scenario today would not know how to take over the government and thus would have to append any ‘presented a list of demands’ with a “And would you mind, awfully, staying in office and doing all this for us because we really don’t know how to…”

    At which point the only thing anyone deserves is a ‘There-there teddy bear of course Uncle will handle it all, now you just run along…’ pat on their childish heads for daring to be the nails that stood up.

    As long as The System (starting with currency controls) which allows modern rule by elites to persist remains in place, there is nothing the common man can do to fix it because he would be playing a rigged game.  Such is the true mark of an endogroup elite, that they guard their bond group, not with common looks but with such a convoluted system that ‘only they’ can run it.  We can gist it but we can’t game it like they can.

    The only way to get past this would be to slaughter the 90th percentile of the wealthy who benefit by retaining said system -exactly as it is-. and starting afresh in a way that dared the world to argue.

    And now you are acting no different than any other ComIntern vision of a triumph of the proletariat.
