#2 Somewhat similar to recent events in Benghazi, MAJ Nidal Hasan was figuratively.... a goat being milked by DoJ and possibly the CIA. It's a very dirty business and not every recruitment, whether witting or unwitting, ends in a made for Hollywood, career building success story. I suspect the administration would simply rather not talk about it, but wat do I know ?

#5 I will admit it has nothing to do with Fort Hood and also that the car has more obvious utility than the gun. But there are an awful lot of people dying and nobody says anything about it. Maybe I should say it's another way of pointing out the hypocrisy.
