One's Observations

A collection of some things I observe along the way.


"Members of Congress are putting pressure on U.S. intelligence agencies to say what they knew about Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan alleged radical views and whether they shared that knowledge with local Army and law enforcement agencies in the weeks and months before the Fort Hood, Texas, shootings."

"In response, U.S. investigative officials acknowledged Monday that Hasan, the only suspect in last week's deadly shootings at Fort Hood came to their attention last December, when they learned he was in contact with an individual "espousing radical views." Other reports have identified the individual as Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical imam in Yemen who once presided at a mosque in Falls Church, Va., that Hasan attended."

"Awlaki, who was released from a jail in Yemen last year, writes a blog that denounces U.S. policies as anti-Muslim. He was a spiritual leader at two mosques where three Sept. 11 hijackers worshiped." (NPR Report)
