Blame America first

November 9th, 2009

I was disappointed, viagra medical but not surprised that the earliest reports on the Fort Hood shooting seemed to focus on the possibility that the shooting was carried out by a guy who just didn’t want to go fight for his country.

Of course, purchase now that it’s starting to seem like he DID want to fight (just for the other side), I don’t see anyone admitting they were a little quick to blame America first.

    Blame America, or blame the President? “We could almost say this is Obama’s fault, because this guy said that he believed Obama was going to get us out of Iraq and Afghanistan.” Really, he did.

    No, Faust. It’s not Obama’s fault. It’s a failure of a system that is more concerned with offending a specific group of people rather than ferreting out someone who might be dangerous.

    BTW, sorry for mispelling your name. I’ve been up too long… ;-)

    So why would Rush say something like that?

    Frankly, I’ve never imagined the military as dominated by so-called politically correct managers. Isn’t it a bit insulting to place the blame for this on this shooter’s supervisors?

    I don’t listen Rush. I fault the system in general. If his supervisors knew he had some of the attitudes attributed to him, then yes, they share a certain amount of responsibility. Ultimately, Hasan is to blame. He pulled the trigger. Yet, if there was an investigation going on, and what’s coming out is true, yet nothing was done, what does this tell you? As I said, a failure of the system. Also, people are people. Just because they are in the Military doesn’t change their wariness of being called a racist or worse.
