An Officer and A Retard... and A Murderer

I've tried really hard to just leave this story alone.  It seems as though every other blogger has covered it and a few have covered it well.  Everything that needed to be said has already been said... except what I'm going to say.

These are all quotes from a story I just read.

Nidal Malik Hasan's overly zealous religious views and strange behavior worried the doctors overseeing his medical training.

Doctors and staff overseeing  Hasan's training viewed him at times as belligerent, defensive and argumentative in his frequent discussions of his Muslim faith (not as if that fits the fucking mold or anything) a military official familiar with several group discussions about Hasan said.

Hasan was characterized as a mediocre student and lazy worker, a matter of concern among the doctors and staff at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, a military medical school in Bethesda, Md., the official said.

The concerns about Hasan's performance and religious views were shared with other military officials considering his assignment after he finished his medical training, and the consensus was to send the 39-year-old psychiatrist to Fort Hood, the official said.

Fort Hood, one of the country's largest military installations, was considered the best assignment for Hasan because other doctors could handle the workload if he continued to perform poorly and his superiors could document any continued behavior problems, the official said.

So let me just  just sum that up.  He's a psychologist, lazy, a shitty student, an argumentative douchebag who nobody likes... some might call him a dick, he makes others uncomfortable talking about violence, he's a member of a religion that is known to be violent, he has ready access to guns, he's known to have had contact with radicals.
So after after all this, they just pass him off somewhere where they know others can pick up his workload for him and hopefully clean up any messes he makes.  GO ARMY!

It's no wonder we're losing winning (they tell me so) the war on terrorism with that kind of brilliance running the show.

I must ask you all, in all seriousness, can you not see the stupid in his eyes?  Can you not feel the "Derrr" emanating from the photograph of him.  I really would like to know what his actual IQ was because by looking at the guy, my first thought it that he's slightly retarded and instead of being taught to shape warp minds of other soldiers as a psychiatrist, he should have been cleaning shitters.  How does a retard become an officer in the greatest military in the world?  How does the greatest military in the world stay that way (or for how long) when it makes officers out of retards?  I'm going to let you all think very hard about those two trick questions.  I have an answer in mind, I'm curious what you think.

Couldn't have said it better myself. I might only add

Oh, I guess there's nothing left to say.

Could you say it louder so more people can hear?

I certainly wish I could make more people hear. We're a country who are so afraid of offending a "protected group" that we soil our trousers at the mere mention of it. I don't think the majority of the country would be sure enough of themselves to say "duck" if they watched him pull the gun if they knew he was muslim. They would not want to jump to conclusions. My only hope is that I can take an abrasive enough approach that I can either turn others to my approach or embarass some into waking up. Thank you for commenting, and supporting my effort.
