Lieberman Ft. Hood Hearings: They're Terrorists

The elephant in the room.

"The 2009 killings at Fort Hood got their first and possibly only hearing in this Congress today. It followed the release of a report from the Senate's Homeland Security report on Fort Hood, in which researchers argued what conservatives have been arguing -- political correctness might be costing the military the ability to react to Islamic extremism in its midst. That, said witnesses today, is what happened with Nidal Hassan."

Witness Gen. Jack Keane (ret.) went on to say the military should have been able to figure out Hasan "believed the same thing that violent Islamic extremists" believe, and should have been kicked out of the Army.

The complaint from the left is that Lieberman and Collins are simply holding hearings in order to accuse the Obama administration of avoiding the use of the term "Islamic extremists".

Well perhaps they are. Doesn't mean they shouldn't. This administration has invented some pretty silly-assed expressions for the word "terrorism", to wit.

It's one of the reasons I hate it when the word "tragedy" is used in place of "murder" when in fact what happened was "murder". (note: I'm ok with "slaughter", that's usually accurate too.)

Perhaps Lieberman and Collins are simply pointing out it's feeble to use nice-words in place of accurate words, and gives pause as to the seriousness of the person who utters nice-words.
