One of the reasons the Obamaloots are giving for a possible presidential veto of a new defense appropriations bill is that it awards Purple Hearts signifying woundings in action to the military victims of two Jihadi killings at Fort Hood and Little Rock, Arkansas in 2009.
“On June 1, 2009, Muslim convert Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, who had spent time in Yemen and was an avowed jihadist, killed one soldier and wounded another in a drive-by shooting on a military recruiting office in Little Rock. He pleaded guilty to murder, avoiding trial and the death penalty, and was sentenced to life in prison.
“Nidal Malik Hasan, a U.S. Army major who had email communications with senior al-Qaeda recruiter and Yemen-based cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, awaits military trial for the Nov. 5, 2009, massacre at Fort Hood, Texas, in which 13 were killed and 29 wounded.
“After the Fort Hood shootings, the FBI quickly said there was no evidence of a greater terrorist plot at work, the Defense Department called it an “isolated” case, and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Hasan’s actions were not representative of his Muslim faith.”
Well, I’m sure that should make us all feel a lot better about it. Cretins.
Nice to see that the cops are taking this seriously, even if the pols often act as if there’s nothing to worry about. Maybe not, but, then again, maybe so. Helps to know what’s going on down at the local mosque, just in case.

Wear your burqa and your veil, do what your father and brothers tell you, don’t go to school, listen to music or have any fun, and when you die…
The sins of the dictator’s club are manifest. What’s being overlooked is just who they actually help.
"When was the last time the UN sat down to condemn any of the 20-plus Muslim countries that practice wonderful social phenomena like: fostering terrorism; teaching and preaching hatred and racism; recruitment and brainwashing of children as suicide bombers; violence against women; and repression of legitimate democratic expression by civilians? The list could go on, but maybe we should ask this question a slightly different way: When was the first time the UN sat down to condemn such a country? The answer is, of course, never."
A NYTimes report on a Harvard and RAND study on terrorists and education which finds the former have more than you might think of the latter.
"These terrorists are not desperately poor uneducated people from the Middle East. A surprisingly large share of them have college and even graduate degrees. Increasingly, they seem to be from Britain, like the shoe bomber Richard C. Reid and most of the suspects in the London Underground bombings and the liquid explosives plot."
But as Wretchard points out, the article never gets around to answering its own initial question, as to why this might be so. Could be a case of a secularist journalist trying (and failing) to understand the religious. Jihadis, after all, are holy warriors in it for G-d, not hatred per se.
