Interesting articles on Security Lapses...Hasan/Detroit..
Seen bits and parts of this before, but first time put into synopsis form... not sure how the last day's stuff would have avoided the tragedy, but the prior stuff should have raised red flags... this and what happened in Detroit shows what lemmings we were to sacrifice our personal liberties for a another mega department in the Government.. that still cannot communicate with each other..
Wasn't the major claim that we missed warning signs about 9-11... because various agencies entrusted with our security did not connect the dots.. both of these cases show how absurd our false sense of security really is.. all we do as a country is pour more and more cash into agencies, who then feed it to contractors, who always need more to pay for their K St. Lobbyists... the whole thing is quite absurd...
The below caption is quite telling and prophesized that this guy was a threat, but somehow it either never got reported, was reported and ignored or was reported innapropriately...
But nothing raised alarm among Hasan's colleagues at Walter Reed quite like his classroom presentations, which seemed to chart the evolution of his beliefs. In June 2007, he gave the culminating presentation of his medical residency to 25 colleagues and supervisors. He was allowed to talk about any subject, and Hasan stood at the front of the room and gave a 50-slide introduction to Islam.
Slide 11: "It's getting harder and harder for Muslims in the service to morally justify being in a military that seems constantly engaged against fellow Muslims."
Slide 12: "(4.93) And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his punishment is hell."
Slide 49: "God expects full loyalty."
Slide 50: "Department of Defense should allow Muslim Soldiers the option of being released as 'Conscientious objectors' to increase troop morale and decrease adverse events."
Hasan gave another presentation on the topic six months later, classmates said. This time, during his research, he e-mailed back and forth with Anwar al-Aulaqi, an al-Qaeda sympathizer living in Yemen (who also has been linked to the Nigerian man charged in the attempted Detroit plane bombing). Hasan also tested his material in front of fellow Muslims at the Silver Spring mosque. Other students in his public health class presented on topics such as water safety and mold. Hasan focused his work on the thesis that the war on terrorism was actually a war on Islam, several classmates said.
A senior aide said Obama would seek accountability at the highest levels, stoking fears in the intelligence community of a shake-up. Another official said the review would show "where the dots should have been connected" and why they were not.
Two officials said a focus of the White House review was what happened to intelligence after it was relayed to the National Counterterrorism Center, created in 2004 to collect, integrate and analyze the information as it is gathered.
U.S. intelligence and counterterrorism officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said spy agencies picked up important information about the suspected would-be-bomber, 23-year-old Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, and about the intentions of al Qaeda leaders in Yemen, in the months before the attempted bombing.
