09 Lima - Military Murder Unit

If we can’t protect our service members, how can they protect us?

First, let me premise the following with the demand that John Brennan be fired immediately for his utter and dangerous incompetence. Secondly, the following also shows that the last war of words between VP Biden and ex-VP Cheney only proves Cheney right on all accounts and Biden as an inept idiot of grand proportions.

As the US Government was holding their “behind closed doors” investigation into the “Fort Hood” terror plot spearheaded by John Brennan another terror act on a US base was unfolding!

According to news sources, 5 Muslim service members were arrested sometime in December in a plot to poison the military food system on the base in South Carolina.

According to CBN – “CBN News has learned exclusively that five Muslim soldiers at Fort Jackson in South Carolina were questioned just before Christmas. It is unclear whether the men are still in custody. The five were part of the Arabic Translation program at the base.

Patrick Jones, the Deputy Public Affairs Officer for Fort Jackson, confirmed for CBN News Thursday afternoon that an investigation was ongoing.

Prior to this posting, CBN News learned that these details were also confirmed by a government official with knowledge of the investigation.

The men are suspected of trying to poison the food supply at Fort Jackson.

A source with intimate knowledge of the investigation, which is ongoing, told CBN News investigators suspect the "Fort Jackson Five" may have been in contact with the group of five Washington, D.C., area Muslims that traveled to Pakistan to wage jihad against U.S. troops in December. That group was arrested by Pakistani authorities, also just before Christmas.

Coming as it does on the heels of November's Fort Hood jihadist massacre, this news could have major implications.

If this is true, then a little over 2 weeks after this most recent development the Fort Hood report was released and it failed to mention this attempt and even went as far as “white wash” the Ft. Hood attack itself!

Most news report about the report itself was scathing, as is the article by the NY Post that described it as such – “There are two basic problems with the grotesque non-report on the Islamist- terror massacre at Fort Hood (released by the Defense Department yesterday):

* It's not about what happened at Fort Hood.

* It avoids entirely the issue of why it happened.

Rarely in the course of human events has a report issued by any government agency been so cowardly and delusional. It's so inept; it doesn't even rise to cover-up level.

"Protecting the Force: Lessons from Fort Hood" never mentions Islamist terror. Its 86 mind-numbing pages treat "the alleged perpetrator," Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, as just another workplace shooter (guess they're still looking for the pickup truck with the gun rack).”

The article concludes with this observation – “In the end, the report contents itself with pretending that the accountability problem was isolated within the military medical community at Walter Reed. It wasn't, and it isn't. Murderous political correctness is pervasive in our military. The medical staff at Walter Reed is just where the results began to manifest themselves in Hasan's case.

Once again, the higher-ups blame the worker bees who were victims of the policy the higher-ups inflicted on them. This report's spinelessness is itself an indictment of our military's failed moral and ethical leadership.

The PC culture in the Pentagon and the upper echelons of the Intelligence agencies can be traced back to the firing of Stephen Coughlin in January 2008 from his position on the military “Joint Staff” as the Pentagon specialist on Islamic law and Islamist extremism.

In the article by Canada Free Press about the firing (titled – Fired for the Truth) it spotlights the exact problem that officials face when speaking frankly about anything “jihad” oriented.

Coughlin was fired for this:

“Stephen Coughlin understands and enunciates what was stated openly to then Ambassadors John Adams and Thomas Jefferson—and what they apparently understood—by the Tripolitan Ambassador Adja.

During his September. 2007 presentation which I witnessed at The US Naval War College, Coughlin updated this timeless Islamic formulation into its modern context:

If the Enemy in the War on Terror (WOT) states that he fights jihad in furtherance of Islamic causes that includes the imposition of Shari’a law and the re-establishment of the Caliphate; And Islamic law on jihad exists and is available in English; Then Professionals with WOT (War on Terror) responsibilities have an affirmative, personal, professional duty to know the enemy that includes ALL the knowable facts associated with the law of jihad.

And Coughlin, a well-trained lawyer, further argued that such understanding by our military leaders is obligatory if they are to uphold their essential commission:

This is the Professional Standard.

Stephen Coughlin has been fired for reminding his peers of this basic obligation.”

What a radical concept, in order to fight a war you should know and understand the motivation of your enemy. How dare he tread onto this hallowed ground!

This is exactly why the Ft. Hood report was a whitewash and why those who are charged with the well being of our soldiers as well as the American public at large will consistently fail to protect us, from ourselves.

  1. Bravo, well said.

    During the 70's there were outright mutinies aboard naval craft by blacks who felt they were mistreated. Although I don't condone their actions they had very real causes for concern. IMO we'll see something of that sort very soon, the kid glove treatment afforded mutineers back then will be used to justify similar acts of defiance in the present day .

    Unlike the mutinies of that time the revolts by our present day military will be much more violent (remember stories of fragging done in Viet Nam?). The violence will be justified in part due to the danger the troops feel exposed to, danger engendered by the wilfull neglect of reality exhibited by the higherups.

    There may also be incidents of responsible commanding officers refusing to carry out their assigned missions, remember the refusal of ship CO's to get underway during the Carter years? That was done to call attention to serious undermanning problems aboard their vessels. It killed their careers but DID send an effective message.

    If these events do happen it's anyone's guess where it will end. The politcally correct nitwits running our nation will never freely take off their blinders, of that we can be certain.
