Is Nidal Malik Hasan a Patsy?

The official story about the Fort Hood killer, Nidal Malik Hassan, is that he is an Islamic extremist with connections to terrorists, and has been under investigation for months. But this official story rests upon some very tenuous foundations and may simply be a ruse to cover-up an even more unseemly story.

Skeptics raise many doubts about the official story:

  • "There is no way a psychiatrist - basically an intellectual desk jockey - shot off hundreds of rounds with two pistols and hit about 40 people without being subdued by someone. Come on! He wasn't a trained assassin or a special ops commando shooting up a mall. He would have had to reload and that means putting one of the pistols down and reloading the other with seasoned combat vets in that deployment center. It only takes seconds to reload, but it only takes a second to subdue him."
  • "No way! That would be impossible. Even if he had two semi-auto pistols [according to early reports he used a 9mm and a .357 revolver to gun down over 40 people] he would still have had to stop to reload and someone would have jumped his ass. Most people on base aren't carrying [weapons], but MPs are and they would have been there in a heartbeat."
  • "I spent 10 years at Ft Hood. There is no way this 'official' story is legitimate. No way would a room full of combat vets allow this one shooter to get off over 100 rounds! And, it is not normal for the outside security guards to be there. They are at the MP station, and at the main gates. This means the room full of soldiers processing must have been pinned down; multiple shooters is the only plausible scenario. This sounds like Maj. Hasan has been used, and perhaps is a patsy."
It does seem unlikely that one Army Major with limited weapons training could use two handguns to shoot one hundred rounds in five minutes, hitting forty people, some multiple times, before being subdued himself.

But the questions alone are not the only source of concern. The initial reports from Fort Hood raise further doubts as many people were reported to have claimed with certainty that there was more than one shooter.

Signs of the Times lists the early reports that are in direct conflict with the now official Army story:

The initial reports said that 7 people had been killed and 12 wounded in a shoot-out. Reuters relayed that two gunmen had been dressed in "military uniform." One had been taken into custody, but the other was still "on the loose."

Sgt. Major Jamie Posten, speaking on the phone from the base, told CNN that there was definitely more than one shooter involved:

This was also reported by MSNBC, which added breaking news that the shooter still on the loose was now surrounded at the base's postal exchange or commissary, completely separate buildings from the Soldier Readiness Center (where soldiers undergo medical screening prior to deployment), and was armed with a high-powered sniper rifle.

Read the rest and investigate for yourself. We may never know what really happened, but is it not plausible, perhaps even likely, that several men, as first reported, are responsible for the attack at Fort Hood and that Major Hasan was a shooting victim, and now patsy, in an attempt to deflect attention from the true killers and their motives, and placing the blame upon the "Islamic extremist?" I urge you to think for yourselves, and doubt the state line. The state has their own interest in this story, and the truth may have no part in it.

The Sign of the Times editors end their article well:

"Now that Hasan has woken from his coma and begun talking, it will be interesting to see how the propaganda machine reinforces its image of him being the 'Islamic extremist lone gunman terrorist'. How can we verify that any statement he makes through the corporate press has not been made under duress? How soon before we hear him confess, "Yes, it was me, just me, I hate America for it's freedoms! Muslims, stand up and unite against the tyrants!" etc.

What fate awaits Nidal Malik Hasan?

Everybody knows what happened to Lee Harvey Oswald. "
