    Experts have talked about this before. How many times have you read about the importance of ‘adding value’ for your audience? How many times have you read about ‘building trust’ with your readers/prospects?
    Many, many times. You know it well. Every marketing guru has spoken about this topic. I’m sick of hearing it. But it STILL bears repeating.

    This is a university “think tank” and was not commissioned in any way by President Bush. Hasan was included because of left-wing political correctness you find in the liberal university environment – it has nothing to do with Bush. Recent studies show that professors vote Democrat 7 or 8 to 1 – so much for “Republican” connections.

    Meanwhile. Obama says you that you shouldn’t jump to conclusions because this guy dressed in Islamic garb and shouted “Allahu Akbar!” before gunning down his fellow solders, because, after all, Islam is a “religion of peace.”

    • duffster  November 15, 2009 at 6:30 pm

      You are wrong about the think tank.  We know these guys and I know the people who put it on. It is pure GOP.  Hasan joined….for what reason?  Hell, I don’t know.

      Your statement..left wing..etc..totally false.

      Assume we look into this, know the folks and don’t have an axe to grind or anything to cover…unlike the people at GWU who we did call, interview and caught in a series of lies.

      Many of your assumptions are simply repeating Fox/GOP silliness except

      you are totally right about Obama not calling it terrorism.

      Question is:  Is Jeff Gates right when he says that Hasan was an Israeli sleeper?

      They have been trying to lie their way out of this one.  I think one email from GWU told me the entire university was on the moon during the conference.


  6. Mick  November 13, 2009 at 12:01 am


    According to the alternative new, (Huffington Post) the female did not kill the shooter. Looks like another lie. There is still a lot of doubt about who shot who for what reason.

    It is taking a lot less time to figure out the lies these days that is a plus.

    Like I have been saying from the beginning I don’t believe a word they are saying. Tell me who shot Kennedy and I will start to pay attention.

    • duffster  November 13, 2009 at 1:08 pm

      the version we have is accurate.

      briefings are written by 12s, signed by 15s and delivered by 13s…DOD side

    Fort Hood misinformation
    Fri, 11/06/2009 – 11:33am

    Last night, the popular blog Gawker and a few other sources reported that Maj. Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood shooter, participated in advising the White House on the transition via a George Washington University think tank on homeland security.

    It turns out, it was all wrong. Last night, I spoke with Frank Cilluffo, the director of G.W.’s Homeland Security Policy Institute and a Foreign Policy contributor, who explained the errors.
    The Institute had authored an advisory paper — not because the White House commissioned it, but because that’s what think tanks do.

    How was Hasan “affiliated”? Cilluffo notes that G.W. lists everyone who RSVPs to Institute events in the meeting booklets (common practice in D.C. think tanks). Hasan was just a member of the public who attended a HSPI event. He never had any affiliation at all.
    Cilluffo remembered calling on Hasan during a Q&A session. The Institute director recalled cutting Hasan off when he wouldn’t stop talking, and recognized him when the television started broadcasting his picture yesterday. But, that was it. They have no relationship; the think tank has no relationship with Hasan.

    Gawker has since corrected its post, which is good to see; other blogs (see Spencer Ackerman, for one) have debunked the rumor. But the lie peppered the Internet last night, and continues to today. The media and the public, of course, want answers about this senseless crime. I hope the media waits until it really has them to publish.

    Fort Hood gunman attended HSPI events as an audience member

    by Emily Cahn
    U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan – the military psychiatrist accused of opening fire at the Fort Hood army base in Texas – attended “a number�� of events at GW’s Homeland Security Policy Institute, according to HSPI’s director, but only attended the events as an audience member.
    The Washington Examiner reported this morning that Hasan “was a participant in George Washington University’s Homeland Security Policy Institute task force that aimed at providing advice on security to the new administration.��

    Yet Frank Cilluffo, director of the HSPI, said Hasan was not affiliated with the HSPI.
    “There have been a lot of erroneous stories,�� Cilluffo said, adding that Hasan has “no affiliation [with HSPI], was not a member of the task force, but participated in some of the meetings as an audience member.��

    Cilluffo said Hasan RSVP’d to these HSPI events “in his capacity as a disaster and preventative psychiatry fellow with the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences�� – a federal health sciences university which trains its students for “military medicine, disaster medicine and military medical readiness.��

    “We try to err on the side of transparency and make available to everyone who is in attendance at our meetings, and that is I’m sure where the linkage came from,�� Cilluffo said, referring to the Examiner’s misrepresentation of Hasan’s affiliation with HSPI.

      Recalled cutting off Hasan?Think Tank? Think he was raising a Red Flag? Bad Fitness Reports but still promoted? These are the same mistakes that lead to 911 in the first place. A college degree should not be a prerequisite to join the Army as a officer. The man was never military material. He couldn,t lead a girl scout troop on a cookie hunt.This is what is wrong, Too many Candyasses making the call. Quit trying to use the Army as a social experiment. How many others have slipped through the cracks? We need warriors, And leaders, Not Think Tanks.

    • duffster  November 13, 2009 at 1:07 pm


      They called me.  When I showed them their list and Hasan’s name with other BIG security folks…they shut up.

      Your information is not accurate..it is a cover story.

      The GWU folks are….dirty.

    Do all of you know where the Homeland Security Dir. was when this was going on? She was in an Arab country comforting them that the US isn’t upset with Muslims! It also took two minutes for the President to get to addressing Ft Hood problems after congrats to a Medal of Freedom recipient and addressing a conference that was going on. This was last Thursday.

    I see where the military is beginning to ban vaccine sites on bases and hundreds of air force pilots have left the service rather than take the vaccine. I am beginning to wonder if they actually want a military here. Drive them out of the service with the vaccine and grind them down in the mideast.

    I had better make this 2 post as it is two articles and fairly long winded. It is a very lengthy piece so it is better to just open up the link. It is an all rights retained type piece also so I don’t want to post the whole thing.


    “Curiouser and Curiouser: -Video surfaces of alleged shooter, Major Nidal Hasan, attending Homeland Security Task Force conference –Major Hasan’s name appears on page 29 of The George Washington University Homeland Security Policy Institute’s ‘Thinking Anew—Security Priorities for the Next Administration’ –Proceedings Report of the HSPI Presidential Transition Task Force – April 2008 – January 2009. The report is dated 19 May 2009.
    Numerous media accounts: Major Hasan’s neighbors, medical trainers, colleagues, friends, cousin, uncle, grandfather– even the store owner to where he bought his food — all heap praise on Major Hasan’s temperament. This appears to be psy-ops, six ways to Sunday. –LRP”

  21. Joe 6 Pack  November 10, 2009 at 12:49 pm

    You give too much credit to politicians. They are not half as smart as you think they are. Not everything is a conspiracy. Our politicians are just as dumb as you are. They couldn’t conspire to cover up a jaywalking charge let alone 9/11 or this crap.

    Have you ever thought that maybe if it looks like a duck, sounds like a duck, swims like a duck, it may just be a duck. You watch entirely too much tv!

    Sometimes common sense is the answer. Political correctness is the root of this evil. We are so worried about offending muslims we will make some pretty stupid decisions.

    You guys really do need to get a life. You make me embarrased to call myself a Veteran.

    Newsflash…The Republicans are no longer in charge! They’ve been out of power since January 2007 when the unemployment rate was 5%. George Bush is no longer President. He’s just a regular guy (who happens to be my neighbor now!) enjoying life. When are you going to start holding the present congress accountable? They’ve been in power for 2.5 years At what point will Obama be responsible for anything? Hell, in the same amount of time that Obama has been President, the Bush administration planned and carried out 9/11.

      Actually, there seems to be a false story stating that this was "Obama’s transition team."

      It was the Bush transition team.

      This is the GOP cover story.  No civilian, even a senator, can order a member of the uniformed services on active duty to do anything.

      It is a violation of law.

      The team disbanded in January 2009.  Obama made no appointments and didn’t interact with them.  He did receive their report.

      It was not used.

    Course a long time ago, I knew a person that was going to ‘mast’ and on the way she got in a wreck, nearly died too. The commander wanted to bust her anyway and went to the hospital, but the doctors threw HER out of the operating room! Maybe that’s what he should have done, just run into a tree, it’s forgotten about.

      No "empty seat" folks….


  28. Mike Bailey  November 9, 2009 at 5:45 pm

    If putting hasan on the trasnition team for the Bush – Obama administrations was any indication of the level of cooperation the Bush/Cheney team was putting forward  they were doing their best to leave the door open  for bad things to happen to the Obama Administration.  

    I am not real smart but supposedly the FBI knew this man was in contact with the Imam in Yemen who knew the 9-11 hijackers here in the states, and they knew he was writing and posting comments comparing suicide bombers to soldiers who jump on grenades to save the lives of their fellow soldiers, yet no notice was given to the Army to flag this mans 201 file to prevent promotions, transfers etc, no they put him on a transition team for the new administration?

    The more I hear about this mess it was almost like everyone knew this man was a walking time bomb yet no one told the Army, despite his bad Officer Efficiency Rating  when I was in if an officer got a bad OER  that was it  they threw him out, why was hasan promoted?

    I don’t like the word terrorist being apllied to a mass murderer who was born an American, his medical training paid for by Americans and he enlisted in the Army, he is a lunatic and a murderer  I hate elevating him to  the 70 virgin level  personally I hope they give him life in Leavenworth with no hope of parole  that would be worse than a death sentence.

    With any luck he will live to be 90 which means he would be behind bars 51 years  executing lets him off easy…….
