    Wanna bet how much of the PC crap that allowed this tragedy to happen gets swept under the rug.

    By the way, does any one know what model of the FN 5.7x28mm ammo, the shooter used?

    If it was ss-190, or ss-192--the s--- should hit the fan. This ammo hasn't been available in the last 5 years with the exception of LEO's or military.
    Also, the biggest purchaser of theses calibers is Saudi Arabia.

    Following are the first two paragraphs of an article in the Jan. 20th edition of Time magazine. I don't know if it qualifies as a cover up but its interesting to say the least.

    The Fort Hood Report: Why No Mention of Islam?
    By Mark Thompson / Washington Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2010

    The U.S. military's just-released report into the Fort Hood shootings spends 86 pages detailing various slipups by Army officers but not once mentions Major Nidal Hasan by name or even discusses whether the killings may have had anything to do with the suspect's view of his Muslim faith. And as Congress opens two days of hearings on Wednesday into the Pentagon probe of the Nov. 5 attack that left 13 dead, lawmakers want explanations for that omission.

    John Lehman, a member of the 9/11 commission and Navy Secretary during the Reagan Administration, says a reluctance to cause offense by citing Hasan's view of his Muslim faith and the U.S. military's activities in Muslim countries as a possible trigger for his alleged rampage reflects a problem that has gotten worse in the 40 years that Lehman has spent in and around the U.S. military. The Pentagon report's silence on Islamic extremism "shows you how deeply entrenched the values of political correctness have become," he told TIME on Tuesday. "It's definitely getting worse, and is now so ingrained that people no longer smirk when it happens."


    The unfortunate reality is this: in the military and corporate worlds any comment or action perceived as politically incorrect is a career ending matter. Anyone accused is guilty until he or she 'proves' himself/herself innocent.

    Lehman can get all sanctomonious about the subject but as a former Secretary of the Navy, he was PERSONALLY part of that culture.

    Referring to the failure to mention Hasan and radical Islam in the report, the article states, "... lawmakers want explanations for that omission."

    Well, here's the explanation. Any member of the investigating panel crazy enough to state the obvious would be drummed out of the service in a nanosecond. Furthermore, Congressional libs and the media would be running the lynch mod.
