Shocka! Liberman Just About Only Politician Dealing In Reality

An outspoken Muslim critic of Americas fight against terrorist, who also has a history of giving shout outs to suicide bombers and just happened to attack American soldiers while yelling "Allahu Akbar!" might, just might actually be a Muslim terrorist.

A senior U.S. senator on Sunday said the shootings at Fort Hood could have been a terrorist attack, and that he would launch a congressional investigation into whether the U.S. military could have prevented it.

Sen. Joe Lieberman, an independent from Connecticut who heads the Senate's Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, said initial evidence suggested that the alleged shooter, Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, was a "self-radicalized, home-grown terrorist" who had turned to Islamic extremism while under personal stress.

Mr. Lieberman said he would begin a Senate investigation aimed at uncovering Mr. Hasan's motives and asking "whether the Army missed warning signs."

The lawmaker said preliminary evidence indicated that Mr. Hasan had denounced the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. "This is not a matter of constitutional freedom of speech," he said. "The U.S. Army has to have zero tolerance."

Unfortunately, the Army's top officer, Gen. George Casey, is still living on another planet.

What happened at Fort Hood was a tragedy, but I believe it would be an even-greater tragedy if our diversity becomes a casualty here," he said. "We have a very diverse army. We have a very diverse society. And that gives us all strength."

Dialing back on the diversity uber-alles mentality would be "an even-greater tragedy" than the death of 12 soldiers and 1 civilian and 29 wounded at the hand of a Muslim terrorist? Really General?

Just curious sir, but how many people have to die before we can consider the fact that religion has played a role in this war?
