In a sit-down interview with Jake Tapper of ABC News last night, Barack Obama actually makes excuses for the terrorist who shot and killed 12 of his fellow soldiers! Obama seems to be blaming the military for this guy's actions.

Tapper asked Obama asking what separated the Fort Hood shooting from acts of terrorism. In response to the question, Obama struggled to distance Nidal Hasan's actions from terrorism despite the fact that all signs point to the fact that he was a terrorist!!

From RealClearPolitics:

"Well, look, we -- we have seen, in the past, rampages of this sort. And in a country of 300 million people, there are going to be acts of violence that are inexplicable. Even within the extraordinary military that we have -- and I think everybody understands how outstanding the young men and women in uniform are under the most severe stress -- there are going to be instances in which an individual cracks. I think the questions that we're asking now and we don't have yet complete answers to is, is this an individual who's acting in this way or is it some larger set of actors? You know, what are the motivations? Those are all questions that I think we have to ask ourselves. Until we have these answers buttoned down, I'd rather not comment on it."

So when Obama says "a larger set of actors" does he mean the military is to blame for this guy going rambo?

When the white Cambridge officer arrested his friend, Obama called the officer "stupid." But Nidal Hasan gets a pass because he was stressed out!? He didn't even go off to war yet! How was he stressed Mr. Obama?

I wonder if Obama would have felt the same way if the guy wasn't a Muslim extremist? Obama seems to be apologizing to Hasan for the military stressing him out. Is he going to visit the shooter in the hospital and apologize to him personally!

    I interpreted this to mean that maybe there were larger forces such as terrorists that this man acted in concert with....or on behalf of.

    As I said yesterday this was a terrorist act plain and simple. :coffee:

  • bk2atl

    Also, there were reports, that this man requested to be released from his military contract on more than one occasion, even going as far as to offer to pay back the military for financing his education, so he could be released/discharged.

    And this turns into a "who do you blame"? The military for not letting him out of his contract knowing he also had some mental issues and was talked to about his drinking. Blame him?

    @ BlackBarbie

    You can not just be released from the military. Im not sure why people are using that as an excuse for this terrorist.

    Elizabeth from the View :cosign: the Prez on this and she HATES him!

    Larger set of actors he meant a terrorist sect. not the military. I guess this is a terrorist act in that he was against U.S. policy and he acted on his displeasure. Now, whether he acted alone is irrelevant or with a group is irrevalant as to whether it was a terrorist act or not. Also, he could have cracked and went crazy and it still I guess would be considered a terriorist act.

  • KaraZ

    If the shooter was a white bread man from middle-America, everyone would call it going postal, a rampage..., even if he contacted an extremist sect of homegrown militants. But once the dude turned out to be Muslim, everyone wants to call it terrorism....

  • LovelyLady

    @ KaraZ not exactly if a Chrisitan from America would've done the same thing and considered doing it for his religion than it would be considered a terrorist act also. not JUST BECAUSE he's muslim.

    The definition of a terrorist act is - the calculated use of violence (or the threat of violence) against civilians in order to attain goals that are political or religious

  • Daisy

    I listened to the Prez speech today at Ft Hood and it was good!

    I am over the word terroist n general have been for awhile now BUT I will say they did call the OK bombers terroist as well if my memory serves me correctly

    I :pray: for all families affected by this

    Lovely the military does give honorable and dishonorable discharges. I am sure they wish they would have let him go now instead of promoting him.

    yes Daisy this is true but he didnt fit any of them categories I guess. If he did Im sure they would have released him. Why not??? But i agree i bet they wish they would've now. And Im not over the word Terrorist because there are terrorist all over the world in every religion, including right here in the good ole (sarcasm) US of A American home grown at that. As you stated including the Oklahoma bomber.

  • LovelyLady

    Then again i do take back what i said i fell as though he did fit the description for dishonorable discharge or a conscientious objector. However that still gives him no right to go and kill our soldiers on our land. Whose to say he wouldn't have done it to civilians if he was released. Im just upset because this is nonsense, it hurts more being as though it was on our land. I pray for the families.

    You make a great point. Had he got his walking papers who else would have been the target long ago. No one should have lost their lives/livelyhood to him I just pray that all who died did not die in vain and that we learn something from it and start taking care of the mental health of our men and women sacrificing for our "so called" safety and freedom.

    As a former army wife, I KNOW that it's not that simple to just ask to get out of the army and POOF you are out. I also know that you don't get promoted without doing things to get promoted. You don't sign up for the army and stay in forever, did he re-enlist at some point and then decide that he wanted out? He is to blame, plan and simple not the army for not letting him go!

    Some may not ask to get out but instead show poor judgement, lack of attentiveness or lack disapline to reamin in any military and I guess when you are the one assessing others your own mental health goes unnoticed. I am sure this man signed many times to be in the Army because he is 39. A few of my step brothers retired from the army after serving a couple of decades. They were blessed to do what the military promised long ago. "It's Not Just A Job It's An Adventure". They got money for school and a great education out of their time in the service along with life long skills. Now we have young men and women coming home from war with head injuries and missing limbs. If they don't come home in a casket.

    The only reason Hasan wanted out of the military is because he realized he was about to be shipped to Iraq and he didn't want to kill fellow Muslims. So he killed Americans instead. But first he went to a strip club just like the 9/11 hijackers did. Yet Obama, the terrorist sympathizer, says he cracked under pressure. Unbelievable. :shrug:

    Are we reading the same quote? Because I'm reading 3-4 different (slanted) interpretations in the comments. He was a terrorist, just like the DC sniper, just like "fundamentalist" Christians who shoot abortion doctors. He snapped under the pressures of life just like the others. Do we need to bring back the president who used simple words?

    We did hear that he wanted out because he was going to another tour of duty. Wasn't this going to be his 3 or 4th tour around Thanksgiving?
    Sandy not to crack on a strip club, but do strippers make men Krazy? Sandra I do think that he cracked under pressure of being in the "our" service. Today's service is not our dad's service or our uncles service depending on how old you are. Now is Veterans Day and put your flags at half staff and don't wait on the mail. But remember a Soilder,I know I remember them each day. Let us have a silent prayer for all who try and do protect us. 1, 2, 3 ,4 , 5. In GOD I Trust.

  • LovelyLady

    Thank You, DHoward

    There is no excuse. And Sandra I agree all of a sudden he wants out when going to fight against his own.
