Whitewashed Jihadi, The Prequel

Last week, the mainstream media completely ignored the fact that Yonathan Melaku is a Muslim after he was arrested for lurking near the Pentagon. Now it turns out that Melaku is responsible for last year’s string of D.C. area sniper incidents too. Can you say Islamic Jihadi or is that still too politically incorrect?

Federal authorities on Thursday charged a Marine reservist in connection with 2010 shootings at the Pentagon and the National Museum of the Marine Corps.

Although he has been charged with only two shootings so far, the criminal complaint links him to three other shootings at military recruiting stations.

. . .

According to a criminal complaint, law enforcement officers searched the residence of Yonathan Melaku and found numerous documents concerning bomb-making and explosives.

Except for Fox News, all the other media outlets are still making everyone play guess the religion by not directly mentioning that Yonathan Melaku is a Muslim acting in the name of Islam. Oh sure, they drop hints like he chanted “Allahu Akbar” before taking his sniper shots, but they refuse to put the word Muslim into print.

/it’s easy enough to infer Melaku’s religion from the articles, because in these types of incidents the perpetrators are pretty much always Muslims, but still, some straight up, honest reporting, without deference to political correctness, would be nice

Confirmed Sniper On The Loose

Here we go again. It’s a sure bet that whoever’s doing these shootings won’t stop until they get caught.

FBI Links 3 Military Shootings in DC Area

The FBI has confirmed all three military related shootings in the Washington D.C. area are connected, saying Thursday ballistic evidence shows the same weapon was used at each site.

The latest shooting occurred at a vacant Marine recruiting station in Chantilly, Virginia sometime between Monday night and Tuesday morning.

In the early morning hours of October 19 police and FBI investigators responded in force when six shots were fired into the south side of the Pentagon, leaving bullets embedded in two different windows. Just two days earlier police in Quantico, Virginia responded to a similar attack on the Marine Corps Museum, where bullets were also fired at windows in the early morning hours.

At the time of the Pentagon shooting police said the weapon used was believed to be a high-powered rifle.

So far the FBI has yet to identify any suspects and no one has been injured in any of the attacks. An investigation is being headed up by the FBI Washington Field Office’s Joint Terrorism Task Force.

Obviously, whoever it is doesn’t like the U.S. military, or at least their buildings. Let’s just hope our mystery sniper(s) don’t graduate to shooting at people, although, at this point, that wouldn’t be much of a leap. It’ll be interesting to see who law enforcement eventually catch.

/not to speculate or anything, but the last D.C. snipers were arguably Muslim jihadis and certainly terrorists, just sayin’

The Final Whitewash

Of course, the three magic words you won’t find anywhere in or near this memo are Islam, Muslim, and Jihad.

Gates Orders Changes in Response to Fort Hood Shootings in 2009

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
