Warning Signs? Nope. None.

In the process of picking up the pieces from the Ft. Hood shooting some very interesting information has risen to the surface.

“We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than
the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is
accountable for his actions. ”
-Ronald Reagan

Here is what we know: Nidal Hasan (the killer) attended the ‘Kill’een Mosque in Virginia where Anwar al-Awlaki was a cleric in 2001. We also know that Anwar al-Awlaki had contact with at least two of the 9/11 hijackers. Hmm…probably just a coincidence because there aren’t that many Muslims in the US? So one degree of separation from 9/11 hijackers. Really? Now, in all fairness, Anwar al-Awlaki probably advises hundreds of people in a position such as his (and hey, a few terrorists might be in the mix). Ok, we also know that there were roughly 10-20 correspondence between Hasan and al-Awlaki after al-Awlaki had fled to Yemen. President Obama said “people should not jump to conclusions about what happened at Fort Hood”. Much like rushing to conclusions about how the Cambridge Police acted “stupidly”. It is also known that the picture that was portrayed of Hasan by al-Awlaki as a good Muslim man searching for a nice woman, was not quite accurate. Hasan had become somewhat of a regular client at the small Starz strip club.

Clearly, there were some things that might have caught the attention of JTTF (Join Terrorism Task Force), FBI or the military. While it is not clear whether or not there was a communication breakdown between departments or rather the information gathered was simply not worth looking into any further. Either way, the murderous day took place and that merits some thorough investigation.
