Of course, the three magic words you won’t find anywhere in or near this memo are Islam, Muslim, and Jihad.
Gates, in a 23-page memo released today, outlined steps ranging from improving Pentagon and FBI intelligence sharing about potential internal threats to giving local commanders greater access to personnel information that might flag potentially dangerous behavior.
“These initiatives will significantly improve the department’s ability to mitigate internal threats, ensure force protection, enable emergency response and provide care for victims and families,” Gates wrote. “The department will make every effort to safeguard civil liberties as it develops these policies and programs.”
The Nov. 5 shootings at Fort Hood left 13 people dead and 43 injured. Major Nidal Malik Hasan, 39, has been charged by military authorities with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 of attempted murder. He awaits trial.
The changes Gates ordered today were recommended by an independent panel that reviewed the procedures the military had in place at the time of the shootings for protecting personnel.

Well, the recommendations are all well and good and neatly wrapped up in politically correct language. But, how about we cut to the nub of the issue? Devout Muslims in the U.S. military need to be watched more closely. At best, their loyalty is divided, at worst, they consider themselves enemy infiltrators for Islam.
/Fort Hood was hardly the first time that stealth Islamic jihadis in, and allied with, the U.S. military have ambushed their unsuspecting and unarmed infidel fellow soldiers inside their own bases, Fort Hood is just the worst such incident, so far
