"We didn't think he was actually dangerous or anything, so we didn't go any further."
Intelligence agencies intercepted communications last year and earlier this year between Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who is accused of shooting to death 13 people at Fort Hood, Tex., and a radical cleric in Yemen known for his incendiary anti-American teachings. But federal authorities dropped an inquiry into the matter after deciding the messages warranted no further action, government officials said on Monday.
But federal officials briefed on the case said their decision to break off the investigation was reasonable based on the information about Maj. Hasan that was compiled at the time, which they said gave no indication he was likely to engage in violence.
Let's see, who was he contacting? Guy named al-Awlaki:
“There is good reason to believe Anwar Aulaqi has been involved in very serious terrorist activities since leaving the United States, including plotting attacks against America and our allies.”
But a serving military officer exchanging e-mails with this bastard was no cause for concern? For an in-depth investigation? Even when combined with all the other crap they knew about him?
You Effing.B.I morons, I hope you're real happy about your actions, because you had a hand in allowing the murders and woundings at Fort Hood to happen.
Of course, the Effing.B.I. clowns who screwed up in the days leading up to 9/11 didn't get fired, or even really disciplined that we know of, so hey, you're good, right? After all, if they didn't get fired or prosecuted after 3,000 dead, why would the bureau do anything to you for a lousy baker's dozen?
