Allen West on the Fort Hood massacre

Press release from the Iraq hero's congressional campaign:
Lt. Col. Allen West (Ret) is a former Fort Hood commander, most recently leading troops there in 2007. West has served in both Iraq and Afghanistan and says the horrible tragedy at Fort Hood is proof the enemy is infiltrating our military.
"This enemy preys on downtrodden soldiers and teaches them extremism will lift them up," West said. "Our soldiers are being brainwashed."
West served more than 20 years experience in the United States Army and although he is waiting for more information to be revealed on Thursday's tragedy, West is certain the military must look at this broader issue on how to prevent Islamic extremism from penetrating our bases.
West has worked closely with the investigation of the planned attack on Fort Dix, New Jersey as well as the bombing of a soldier's tent in March 2003 while stationed in Kuwait. Both have been linked to Islamic extremism.
"The most importantly thing right now is that we objectively assess this situation," West said. "But it is imperative that we take steps to make sure this does not happen again."
Michelle Malkin has more on the massacre, including the news that the killer had come to the attention of law-enforcement six months earlier.

Jihad? What jihad?


  1. It's the Flemish menace all over again! Keep an eye on those tassles!

  2. I know how to stop it. Stop letting Muslims in the military. People seem consistently baffled why Muslims do things like this. It is because they are Muslims. At some point, a certain percentage is always going to go off on a jihad rampage. So, simply put, get Muslims out of the military, deport all non-citizen Muslims, and stop Muslim immigration.

  3. It's time for a real discussion about whether Islam is compatible with American life. This is not the first Islamic terrorist attack on Americans: the SUV attack on UNC students, the shooting of Americans at the synagog in LA, the beheading of the woman by her husband, honor killings in Texas and Arizona, and so on.

    Yes, there is the whole constitutional issue, but as has been said by others, the Constitution is not a suicide pact.

  4. Linked you.

    Yeah, so how's that "Gun Free Zone" thing workin' out for ya?
