Nidal Malik Hasan was the all American Palestinian. He was born August 31, 1960 in Arlington County, Virginia the son of immigrant parents from the West Bank town of Ramallah. He attended Arlington's Wakefield High School for a year in 1986 then graduated from William Fleming High School in Roanoke in 1988. There, instead of dating, Hasan was videotaped telling a profanity-laced tale in Arabic to his Arabic classmates about a young man who commits incest in the process of selling a chicken to earn money for marriage. In 1987, the family bought the Capitol Restaurant, a blue-collar beer hall. In a 1995 interview with The Roanoke Times, Malik Hasan, Nidal's father, acknowledged that it a sleazy dump. Hasan joined the Army circa 1988. He studied at Barstow Community College in California satellite campus at Fort Irwin from the spring semester of 1989 to the spring semester of 1990. College records also show that Hasan was an enlisted soldier at an E-3 rank (private first class) or below while attending Barstow Community College. Hasan’s residential address zip code indicated that he was living on post. He went on to Virginia Western Community College in Roanoke, where he earned an associate degree in science in 1992. Hasan first enrolled at Virginia Tech for Summer Session II in 1992. He completed coursework in Spring Semester 1995 and received a Bachelor of Science degree with honors in biochemistry with a minor in biology and chemistry from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.


Even at this early stage the milieu Hasan existed within was clearly that of Imam jihadi terrorist support groups. While not performing jihad themselves, these Imam’s preach a brand of Islam that gives terrorist violence a religious imprimatur as the “neglected duty.” But Imam Sheik Shaker El-Sayed of the Dar al-Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, where Hasan prayed claimed that Hasan’s greatest interest seemed to be in finding a wife, not in Islamism. Like most worshipers, he said Hasan “joined prayers, finished prayers, then left. I didn’t see him hanging out with people, joining discussion groups or classes. But there has been a lot of blogging about our mosque, a rightwing conspiracy, trying to make a mountain out of cardboard.” Imam El-Sayed was an associate of Mohammad Al-Hanooti an unindicted co-conspirator of the Blind Shaykh, Omar Abdel Rahman. It was no fluke that El-Sayed told reporters the terrorism case against Abu Ali was based on a confession to Saudi authorities he termed "laughable." "They didn't have the evidence. They don't have the evidence. The fishing expedition continues," he said. In February 2005, Abu Ali was transferred to United States custody from Saudi Arabia pursuant to a criminal indictment, returned by a grand jury in the Eastern District of Virginia on February 3, 2005. The indictment charged Abu Ali with two counts of providing material support to terrorists, two counts of providing material support to a terrorist organization (Al Qaeda), one count of contributing goods and services to Al Qaeda, and one count of receiving services from Al Qaeda. The indictment was later amended to add charges of conspiracy to assassinate the president, conspiracy to hijack aircraft, and conspiracy to destroy aircraft. The indictment alleged that Abu Ali had joined a terrorist cell in Medina, and that among the plots they were developing were a plan to assassinate the President of the United States, and a plan to mount 9/11-style attacks using planes transiting through the United States. El Sayed was a leader at a radical Salafi mosque with ties to convicted terrorists supported by the Muslim Brotherhood. El Sayed has been identified as Secretary-General of the Muslim American Society.

Dr. Asif Qadri, head of the medical clinic at the Muslim Community Center in Silver Spring, Maryland said Hasan frequently attended prayer services there. He spoke with pride about being a Muslim serving in the Army, Qadri said, and was known as a “jovial” and “well balanced” person who never talked about politics. Dr. Qadri is from the disputed part of Kashmir, the home of many an Islamist group.

Hasan’s Imam at the Silver Spring Maryland Islamic Center, Faizul Khan also said that Hasan was more interested in finding a wife than in politics. Faizul Khan is a leading member of the Shura (Advisory) Council for the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). The Islamic Society of North America is a terrorist support group masquerading as respectable, responsible patriotic Muslims.

Imam Sirraj Wahhaj is the Vice president of the ISNA. In 1991 Wahhaj recited an invocation in front of the United States House of Representatives. He was the first Muslim to do so. Wahhaj presides at the Al-Taqwah Mosque in Brooklyn whose members provided security for the Islamist sympathizers of Said Nosair during his trial for the Meyer Kahane assassination. These men, all members of a Gama Al-Islamaya cell, would later take part in the bombing of the WTC in 1994. Respectable Imam Wahhaj had met often with Mayors Dinkins and Bloomberg of New York City, however, he has called for replacing them with a caliphate where Shar’ia law would prevail. Imam Wahhaj served as a character witness for Sheik Abdel Rahman and his crew member Hampton-El at their trial during which they were accused of plotting to blow up the Bridges and Tunnels leading to New York City. He also testified for the defense at the African Embassy bombing trial. Islamic Society of North America president Ingrid Mattson stated, "I don't understand why the Muslim-American community has to take responsibility for Major Hasan. The Army has had at least as much time and opportunity to form and shape this person as the Muslim community."

ISNA is linked to Leesburg’s Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences that trains Muslim clerics, including those who will serve in the U.S. military. At least nine of the 14 chaplains in the U.S. military received their religious training from this institution. What version of Islam does this institution teach? The Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences was founded by Taha Jabir Al-Awani and he is its president. Taha Jabir Al-Awani is also president of the Fiqh Council of North America. Taha Jabir Al-Awani was an unindicted co-conspirator of Prof. Sami Amin Al-Arian a Palestinian terrorist operating out of Florida.

The Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences issued this fatwa regarding Muslim service in the American military in conjunction with the Fiqh Council of North America: “We abide by every law of this country except those laws that are contradictory to Islamic law...” This means that it is haram (forbidden) to kill another Muslim. Osman Danquah, the co-founder of the Islamic Community of Greater Killeen, Texas, said Hasan asked him for advice on what he should tell soldiers who had concerns about going to fight Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan. Taha Jabir Al-Awani deserves only partial credit for this fatwa: It was co-authored by Mohammad Al-Hanooti, one of Sheik Rahman’s unindicted co-conspirators in the Bridge and Tunnel Trial, and a member of the Fiqh Council of North America. In July 2002 the FBI leaked a document to the press that called Al-Hanooti a supporter of Hamas who raised more than $6 million for the group. The document reported Al-Hanooti took part in a three-day meeting in 1993 designed to devise ways to defeat the so-called Oslo Accords. The FBI bugged the meeting but didn’t act. “It was mentioned that the United States provided them with a secure, legal base from which to operate,” the FBI report stated. Al-Hanooti is now the Imam of the Islamic Center of the Capital District near Albany. During Operation Green Quest Federal Agents raided both the Fiqh Council of North America and the Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences searching for evidence of money laundering and tax evasion as well as possible ties to a worldwide private financial empire that Western governments have long suspected of funding Islamist activities.


Hasan’s brother claimed that as reaction to his mother’s death in 2001 Hasan began attending a mosque five times a day and prior to that he was not observant. It is more likely that what further radicalized Hassan was when came into contact with two of the 9/11 crew and their cleric handler. As stated Hasan prayed at the Dar al-Hijrah Mosque, a hotbed of Islamist activity, where two of the 9/11 Shaheeds Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi prayed and their facilitator Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki preached along with his “moderate” associate, Johari Abdul Malik who advised American Muslims after 9/11: “You can blow up bridges, but you cannot kill people who are innocent on their way to work.” Hasan’s mother’s funeral was held there.


Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki of the Masjid Ar-Ribat Al-Islami, San Diego, California, who was the subject of an FBI counterterrorism inquiry for part of the time that the future 9/11 Shaheeds Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi were in San Diego, claimed to have served as their “spiritual advisor” there. In reality Al-Awlaki knew they were jihadi and that they were here to commit a terrorist act. Born and raised in the U.S., Al-Awlaki obtained B.S. in Civil Engineering from Colorado State University, M.A. in Education Leadership from San Diego State University and studied for a PhD in Human Resource Development at George Washington University, where he served as the Muslim Chaplin. The FBI opened a counterterrorism inquiry into Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki's activities in June 1999. During the inquiry the FBI discovered that the Imam was in contact with a number of other persons of investigative interest.

It is learned he had been visited by Ziyad Khaleel. Khaleel was directly plugged into Al Qaeda through Yemeni native and geochemist Ashraf Al-Jailani worked at the Jewish-owned Gojo hand soap company in Akron, Ohio and had indirect access to the chemical labs where flammable ingredients were stored. These chemicals could have been the fuel for a massive attack. The FBI picked up Al-Jailani in October 2002. In 1996 Al-Jailani paid a 30-day visit to Yemen after which his wife's diary stated he was completely changed. The diary said Al-Jailani had become an evil man, obsessed with a harsh, violent version of Islam and he began to talk about suicide bombers going to heaven.

An FBI memo stated that in 1999 a business card belonging to Al-Jailani was found in the possession of a suspected jihadi in New York City named Abdel Ghani Meskini, who had been arrested on December 31, 1999 in Brooklyn and charged with concealing his material support of Ahmed Ressam's efforts to smuggle explosives into the Seattle area. The complaint against Meskini alleged that FBI agents learned from a confidential source that between December 11, 1999 and December 16, 1999 Meskini traveled to and stayed in Seattle where he was to join Ressam. The source said that Meskini had explained that Ahmed Ressam was a member of a well-organized group that had assigned him to deliver his rental car, loaded with explosives, to a parking lot in Seattle where another group member would retrieve it. Meskini’s arrest was a result of FBI agents having found a piece of paper with his name and Brooklyn phone number in Ressam’s possession. After Ressam's arrest, Meskini returned to his apartment and tried to destroy evidence of his trip to Seattle to rendezvous with Ressam, including an airline ticket and withdrawal slips from ATM machines in Seattle. The withdrawals were from a Brooklyn bank account.

An FBI agent called Al-Jailani about this business card and Al-Jailani invited the agent to his apartment and answered all questions in a one-hour session. Al-Jailani said he distributed hundreds of business cards when he first came to the United States in an attempt to get a job. At a bail hearing for Al-Jailani Akron FBI agent Roger Charnesky testified that after the September 11th Raids Al-Jailani said that he knew a brother of one Shaheeds and approved of the action. Federal Immigration Judge Walt Durling forced the hearing to make the FBI justify why they needed to continue keeping Al-Jailani in a Berks County, Pennsylvania prison after more than a year. Agent Charnesky said that when the FBI searched Al-Jailani’s apartment on October 23, 2002 Al-Jailani's Wisconsin ID card had the same address as a “Suspect B” whose address (Briarwood Apartments 1826 Fordem Avenue, Madison, Wisconsin) was found in April 1999, along with Al-Jailani's business card, in the Chicago home of Ziyad Khaleel. Ziyad Khaleel and Tarik Hamdi delivered a satellite telephone and battery pack to Usama bin Laden in Afghanistan in May 1998. Khaleel purchased the phone itself and Hamdi delivered it. Ziyad was a Committee for the Defense of Legitimate Rights associate, an Al-Qaeda front group operating out of England. The credit card used to purchase the phone belonged to Said al-Fagih (right), also tied with the Committee for the Defense of Legitimate Rights. This phone was used to co-ordinate the attacks on the American Embassies in East Africa. An employee of O'Gara Satellite Networks testified about the sale of an Inmarsat phone to Ziyad Khaleel, who was a resident of Columbia, Missouri at the time. Khaleel purchased additional phone accessories and asked that the equipment be mailed to Tarik Hamdi, 933 Park Avenue, Herndon, Virginia. From 1989 to 1992 Tarik Hamdi, reared in Turkey and Iraq, lived in Tampa, Florida where he worked as office manager for Muslim Brotherhood member Sami Al-Arian’s Islamic Committee for Palestine. In January 2000 Tarik Hamdi joined the defense team of Mohamed Rashed Daoud Al-'Owhali. Tarik Hamdi was familiar with bin Laden's senior military commander Mohammed Atef, and a letter to Atef contained a line referring to previous communication through “Mr. Tarik Hamdi in Washington.” Tarik Hamdi sent a fax from Pakistan to bin Laden aide Khalid al-Fawwaz. The fax read: “Brother Khalid: Peace be upon you. We arrived safely and now we are in the Marriott Hotel.” In July 2005 Ahmed Ressam was sentenced to 22 years in prison when he is arrested in December 1999 he reportedly tells the FBI crucial details about al-Qaeda operations in the US.

In early 2000, a subject of a Los Angeles investigation closely associated with Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, visited the Imam (probably Firas Jandali, part of the Sami Al-Arian Defense Committee). The FBI closed its inquiry into the activities o f the Imam in March 2000, approximately two months after Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi arrived in San Diego. In the case-closing memorandum, the agent asserted that the Imam had been “fully identified and does not meet the criterion for [further] investigation.” The investigation was closed despite the Imam’s contacts with other subjects of counterterrorism investigations and reports concerning the Imam’s connection to suspect organizations. Anwar Al-Awlaki also served as vice president of the Charitable Society for Social Welfare (CSSW), the US branch of a Yemeni charity founded by Sheikh Abdul Majeed al-Zindani, a Yemeni imam who the US will officially designate a terrorist in 2004. CSSW also has ties to the Islamic Cultural Institute in Milan, Italy, considered one of the centers of al-Qaeda activity in Europe. The FBI begins investigating CSSW in 1999 after a Yemeni politician visits the US to solicit donations for the charity, and then visits Mahmoud Es Sayed, a known al-Qaeda figure at the Islamic Cultural Institute, on the same trip. On November 29, 2001 Italian investigators shut down the Milan-based Islamic Cultural Center that follows the teachings of Omar Abdul Rahman and was al-Qaeda's logistical center for European operations. The Center's key financial supporter, Ahmed Idris Nasreddin, a wealthy businessman and Kuwait's former honorary consul in Milan, was a Director of Al Taqwa Trust. The United States Treasury Department knew for many years that Al Taqwa has long acted as a financial adviser to Usama bin Laden. But only after the September 11th Victory of Allah, did Bush the Younger publicly say: “Al Taqwa is an association of offshore banks and financial management firms that have helped al-Qaeda shift money around the world.”

When Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki moved to one of the largest Muslim communities in the country at the Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church, Virginia Nawaf al-Hazmi and Hani Hanjour followed and began attending that mosque. This was no co-incidence. For instance, on February 4, 2000 one month before the FBI investigation is closed, Al Aulaqi talked on the telephone four times with hijacker associate Omar al-Bayoumi. The 9/11 Commission will later speculate that these calls are related to Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi, since al-Bayoumi is helping them that day, and that Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi may even have been using al-Bayoum’s phone at the time. Al-Bayoumi had also been the subject of an FBI counterterrorism investigation in 1999 His preachings are on YouTube! These are bold incitements to terror!

After the September 11th Raids Anwar Al-Awlaki tried to cast himself as a moderate and said:

“First of all, we stated our position clearly, and I even feel that it's unfortunate that we have to state this position because no religion would condone this, so it should be common knowledge. But we were in a position where we had to say that Islam does not approve of this. There is no way that the people who did this could be Muslim, and if they claim to be Muslim, then they have perverted their religion. We encourage people to participate in blood drives, we encourage them to donate, and then we encourage the community to reach out…So actually, fighting is only a part of the jihad, and it's considered to be a defensive force in order to protect the religion. If somebody defends their life, their property or their family, this is considered to be a jihad. I'll tell you the way that [the perpetrators] justify them. That does not mean that scholars of the Muslim world approve, but this is where they are coming from. They say that Muslim land is now invaded by the U.S., there are U.S. soldiers stationed in Saudi Arabia and in the Gulf. And then, the state of Israel is an occupying force which is supported by the U.S. Fighting an invading force, they justify attacking the U.S. because the U.S. population are the taxpayers, and are the ones who are financing the war against them. Now the reason why this is not accepted at all by Muslim scholars, is, first of all, that civilian people most of the time have nothing to do with what their governments are doing. Second, many of the scholars don't really see America as a direct enemy, but only as supporting enemies in the area. So why carry the struggle further than it needs to go? For a lot of people in the Muslim world, the first enemy is their governments. It's not really Israel or the United States, it's their own governments, and they see the U.S. as the strengthening power of these governments. Without the U.S., these repressive governments would topple. My worry is that because of this conflict, the views of Osama bin Laden will become appealing to some of the population of the Muslim world. Never in the past were there any demonstrations raising the picture of Osama Bin Laden it has just happened now. So Osama bin Laden, who was considered to be an extremist, radical in his views, could end up becoming mainstream. Now, to what extent Osama bin Laden has any coordination or relationship with the Taliban is not known. But I think that the reason the Taliban is defending him is that not only do they think that he didn't do this, but also in their tribal customs—remember that the Taliban are predominantly Pashtun—it is a shame to hand over somebody who sought your protection. So this is how this alliance came about, but it's something that is fairly recent. Plus, I think they're grateful to him for his assistance in the war against the Russians. The Taliban themselves, as a movement, they have come out very strongly in their condemnation of what happened in the U.S. They do not approve of this terrorism. There's a difference of opinion. They're not really in alliance. That's a very frightening thing, so the U.S. needs to be very careful and not have itself perceived as an enemy of Islam.

Al-Awlaki left the United States in September 2002, returned briefly to clear up some unfinished business then moved to Yemen where he now resides. In January 2003 Al-Awlaki visited England and exhorted the faithful at the Masjid al-Tawhid mosque in London to become shaheeds, and die in the sake of Allah [subhanahu wa ta’ala]. On August 31, 2006, ostensibly due to a Yemeni Secret Police investigation over Yemeni Tribal issues, Al-Awlaki was detained for questioning by the Yemeni authorities. According to Al-Awlaki, during the course of his interrogation he was asked specific questions about his Islamic activities, which led him to believe that he was being held and questioned at the behest of the United States government. On December 12, 2007, Al-Awlaki was released by the Yemeni authorities and was reunited with his family. Anwar al-Awlaki currently resides in Yemen, and is associated with Iman University. US intelligence labeled him al-Qaeda in 2008. The September 11th Commission wrongly concluded that Al-Awlaki had provided aid to the terrorists but was aware of their intentions.

Khalid Shaikh Mohammed told the CIA that there were no facilitators in the US to help the two jihadi, “I asked a great deal of al-Hamzi and al-Midhar, whom I had only middling confidence, because of their lack of English and exposure to the West. The only reason they were involved in the 9/11 plot was because they had visas and because bin Laden told me he wanted the two to go on the operation. Because of their deficiencies, I permitted al-Hazmi and al-Midhar, unlike the other 9/11 Shaheeds to go to the local mosque to request assistance and advice on functioning in American society, and I allowed the two, unlike the others, to contact me on urgent matters. It was my idea that Khalid al-Midhar and al-Hazmi should reside in San Diego, California, after arriving in Los Angeles on January 2000. There was no al-Qaeda operative or facilitator in the United States to help al-Midhar and al-Hazmi settle in the United States. Al-Midhar and al-Hazmi were not engaged in casing activity while in San Diego, given that they barely knew how to function in U.S. society.” This statement was contradicted by the fact that many Arab-Americans Al-Midhar and al-Hazmi came into contact with had been looked at by the counter-terrorist community and were Al-Qaeda facilitators:

Mohadar Mohamed Abdoulah who worshipped at the Masjid Ar-Ribat Al-Islam or Base of Support for Jihadi Operations provided help with air reservations and finding a flight training school for al-Hazmi and Hani Hanjour. He was indicted for providing material aid to Al-Qaeda.


The FBI thought it had a high-level informer in San Diego, California in its employ before the September 11th Raids named Abdussattar Shaikh of Lemon Grove, California, but Shaikh knew how to play the Bureau. Shaikh served for eight years on the Citizens Review Board on Police Practices and also served as an Honorary Deputy Sheriff from 1971-1995. Active in the National Conference of Christians and Jews he has also been trained as a chaplain in the Red Cross. Shaikh, a key FBI asset, was the landlord of Khalid al-Midhar from May 2000 to June 2000 and Nawaf al-Hazmi from May 2000 to December 2000! FBI Special Agent Steven Butler had recruited Abdussattar Shaikh. On May 14, 1994. Agent Butler had first visited the Islamic Center of San Diego, a large Clairemont mosque, to investigate eight threatening calls that were received within hours of the Oklahoma City bombing. One caller said the center would be blown up if it were proved that Arabs were responsible. Abdussattar was the co-founder of this Mosque and a prominent member of the Muslim Community. When Butler realized that Muslims were not responsible for the Murrah attack he began to sympathize with them.

Butler remained the asset's handling agent or "control agent" - until he retired in February 2002. Abdussattar Shaikh was as an informational source, providing the FBI with information acquired in his normal daily routine. The FBI normally questioned him, although he occasionally volunteered information that he thought might be relevant. After September 11th even the FBI’s Office of the Inspector General was unable to interview Shaikh. The Joint Intelligence Committee Inquiry had attempted to interview him also without success. The Committee then submitted interrogatories that Shaikh declined to answer, asserting his Fifth Amendment privilege. Shaikh indicated through his attorney that if subpoenaed by the Committee, he would not testify without a grant of immunity. The FBI was unwilling to allow this informer to testify even before a closed session of Congress, claiming it would damage efforts to recruit sources from Arab-American communities. Was this the real reason or was the FBI informant’s true allegiance to Allah?

After 9/11, Abdussattar Shaikh told the FBI the two Brothers were good, religious Muslims. They did not work, yet they always seemed to have money. Although they did not fit the profile of rich Saudis, Abdussattar Shaikh never questioned them about finances. They did not act in a peculiar manner and did nothing to arouse his suspicions although they often would go outside when using their cellular telephones. Shaikh said he identified the two only by their first names to the FBI. Later he said that he had not mentioned them at all. These Brothers living in Abdussattar Shaikh's home were in a position to put Shaikh and the information he supplied to the FBI in jeopardy. Therefore, prudence and operational security would suggest that information about persons living with the asset should have been sought by the FBI, at least to the extent of learning and documenting their names, and perhaps running a records check on them. This was not done.

During one of their last contacts, Nawaf al-Hazmi advised Abdussattar Shaikh that he was moving to Arizona to attend flight training, but Shaikh did not advise the FBI of this information until after the September 11th attacks. Abdussattar Shaikh claimed Nawaf al-Hazmi never mentioned flight training he received while living in San Diego yet he told San Diego Magazine “They said they were old friends from Saudi Arabia who were here to study and become pilots. But they didn’t have any anger, or temper. Believe me, if I had known they were on some sort of terrorist list, I would have immediately informed authorities. I’ve lived in this country 42 years. What happened last year was horrible, and I hope and pray nothing like that ever happens again.” Which side was Shaikh on, Allah’s or the FBI? Religious law over-rides civil law as civil law is the word of man not the word of G-d.

The fools of the Joint Committee on Intelligence wondered about this and other strange events: “First, while there are several indications suggesting that future hijacker Hani Hanjour had contact with Shaikh in December 2000, Shaikh has repeatedly advised the FBI that he does not recognize photos of Hanjour. Second, Shaikh told the FBI that the hijackers did nothing to arouse his suspicion, but Shaikh also acknowledged that Nawaf al-Hazmi had contacts with at least four individuals Shaikh knew were of interest to the FBI and about whom Shaikh had previously reported to the FBI. Third, Shaikh has made numerous inconsistent statements to the FBI during the course of interviews after September 11, 2001. Fourth, Shaikh’s responses during an FBI polygraph examination to very specific questions about his advance knowledge of the September 11th plot were judged by the FBI to be inconclusive, although the FBI asserts that this type of result is not unusual for such individuals in such circumstances.” Shaikh asked for immunity from prosecution if he was called to testify under oath and commented, “I don’t know why I have been accused. I think I’m going to ask them [the FBI].” Shaikh denied he was an FBI informant and said he was shocked by the suggestion. Initially Shaikh was not paid. In July 2003, Shaikh was given a $100,000 payment and closed as an asset. This was not the first time the FBI and CIA was bamboozled by a triple agent. The classic case was that of Sergeant Ali Mohamad which was covered by Peter Lance to a far greater extent than me. Another triple agent case surfaced recently in New York City, where jihadist insects planned to detonate a series of bombs hidden in knapsacks on the New York City Subway system.


There were other Al-Qaeda facilitators in the San Diego area. Edwar Salamah, a Palestinian-born U.S. citizen and manager of Sam's Star Mart gas station in La Mesa, who was at the time being investigated by the FBI, hired Nawaf al-Hazmi to work for him briefly, after receiving a call from a mutual friend at the Ar-Ribat al-Islami Mosque in La Mesa. In January 2000, before Nawaf al-Hazmi’s employment at Sam's Star Mart gas station, the FBI Los Angeles field office initiated an investigation of Salamah after a person whom the FBI was surveilling entered Salamah’s car in a mosque parking lot. That person was the brother of a bin Laden operative. Salamah was under FBI investigation when he hired Nawaf al-Hazmi.


The owner of Sam’s Star Mart, Osama “Sam” Mustafa cheered upon learning of the September 11th Raids and had been investigated by the FBI numerous times. The first investigation was opened in August 1991 upon receipt of reports from the San Diego Police Department that, during a traffic stop, Mustafa had stated that the United States needed another Pan Am 103 attack and that he could be the one to carry it out. Pan Am Flight 103, en route to New York from London, exploded in the air over Lockerbie, Scotland, killing all 259 passengers, among them 189 Americans, and 11 people on the ground. Libya has taken responsibility for this action. Mustafa also said that all Americans should be killed for what they did to Iraqis. During the investigation, the FBI developed information that Mustafa was associated with members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine in San Diego and Chicago. In 1994, San Diego police also received an anonymous call stating that Mustafa was a Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine member. The FBI received information in 1994 that Mustafa had threatened to kill a former Israeli intelligence officer who resided in San Diego. Mustafa informed the Israeli that he was a member of the PLO and that the orders to kill him had come from the PLO. The FBI closed its investigation of Mustafa, but reopened it in 1997 when it received information tying him to a possible plot based in North Carolina.

In 1996 the FBI began Operation Smokescreen, after a number of Muslims were seen buying large quantities of cigarettes from wholesalers in North Carolina. In 1997 Bassam Youssef Hamood, of Charlotte, North Carolina, was arrested for cigarette smuggling. It was believed that his profits were being donated to the Hizb’allah. Hizb’allah earned an estimated profit of $1.5 million between 1996 and 2000 by purchasing cigarettes in a low tax state for a lower price and selling them in a high tax state at a higher price. In July 2000 Bassam Youssef Hamood, of Charlotte, North Carolina was charged with the same offense. Although the media reported that the profits from this enterprise were again funneled to the Hizb’allah he was not charged with giving the Hizb’allah material support until after the September 11th Raids. Hamood was convicted by a jury verdict on June 21, 2002, for providing material support to a designated terrorist organization, Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, cigarette smuggling, money laundering, and immigration fraud. On February 28, 2003, he was sentenced to 155 years in prison. It is not clear if this is the plot Mustafa was tied to. In February 2001, a stockbroker called the FBI to say that Mustafa had closed his account, explaining that he was sending the money to freedom fighters in Afghanistan. Mustafa now resides in Riverside, California.

Nidal Hasan went on to Graduate School at the Uniformed Services University of The Health Sciences F. Edward Herbert School Of Medicine Bethesda MD and got his MD Degree in 2003. Dr. Val Finnell, a classmate of Hasan’s last year at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Maryland, called Hasan “a vociferous opponent to U.S. policy in Iraq” and said he frequently spoke about his faith, sometimes in inappropriate venues “We had an environmental health class assignment; most of us gave presentations on things like molds in homes and allergens,” Finnell said. “Hasan’s topic was, ‘The U.S. war in Iraq: A war against Islam.’ I have no idea why the faculty even allowed him to make such a presentation.” Hasan did his residency in Psychiatry at Walter Reed Medical Center Washington, DC USA and completed his Residency in 2007 some 19 years after leaving Virginia Tech High School. Hasan had served six years at Walter Reed before his Texas assignment. As a clinical psychiatrist, he worked with both wounded troops returning from war and their families. Hassan went on to study Disaster and Preventive Psychiatry at the Uniformed Services University of The Health Sciences at Walter Reed in Bethesda and completed his Fellowship in 2009.


Prior to June 2007 Major Hasan began to log on to Islamist Jihadist Web sites that celebrated suicide bombing and encouraged American Muslims to take action against the Infidels. In a June 2007 PowerPoint presentation he wrote, “My U.S. Muslim clerics are vague and ambiguous, under duress? Non US Scholars [such as Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki] issued fatwa clearly stating it’s getting harder and harder for Muslims in the service to morally justify being in a military that seems constantly engaged against fellow Muslims.” The PowerPoint presentation was clearly that of an Islamist. Hasan ridiculed Muslims who claimed, “I love the Koran and being a Muslim, but I don’t want to live under Islamic rule [sharia Law].” This sentence appears in quotations as if it is someone else’s thoughts. His definition of a moderate Muslim was, “Muslims may be seen as moderate (compromising) but G-D is not.”


Hasan evidenced hatred of Jews by quoting these passages from the Holy Qu’ran,

“And certainly you have known those among you who exceeded the limits of the Sabbath, so we said unto them: Be apes, despised and hated. Say, Shall I inform you of (him who is) worse than this in retribution from Allah? Worse is he whom Allah has cursed and brought His wrath upon, and of whom he made apes and swine. Therefore when they revoltingly persisted in what they had been forbidden We said to them Be apes despised and hated. Surely, those who disbelieved in Our Ayat we shall burn them in fire. As often as their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for other skins that they may taste punishment.”

What do apes and pigs have to do with soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan who are suffering mental disorders? Hasan was telling his colleagues that the Jews, the descendants of pigs and apes, should roast again in the crematoriums. The Army psychiatrists just sat around and listened. No one reported this Jew hater to his superiors. Hasan quoted Qaseem Uqdah as having counted 15,000 Muslims in the American Armed Forces. Qaseem was an official of the American Muslim Council, an organization widely viewed as a front for the Muslim Brotherhood.

Hasan concluded, “Muslims soldiers should not serve in any capacity that renders them at risk to hurting to hurting killing believers unjustly – will vary! Department of Defense should allow Muslims Soldiers the option of being released as “Conscientious objectors” to increase troop morale and decrease adverse events.” “Adverse events” was a euphemistic way of describing the murder of American soldiers by other American soldiers. If Muslim groups can convince Muslims that they are fighting for G-d against injustices of the “infidels” ie: enemies of Islam, then Muslims can become a potent adversary ie suicide bombing etc. Osama Bin Laden, Taliban, Suicide bombers, Iran. We love death more than you love life!” These were the thoughts of an Islamist yet no investigation was initiated. Additionally Hasan's military superiors repeatedly ignored or rebuffed his efforts to open criminal prosecutions of soldiers he claimed had confessed to "war crimes" during psychiatric counseling. Hasan was willing to violate doctor-patient privilege in order to prosecute another American soldier. If had done this no soldier would have trusted an Army psychiatrist with this thoughts and actions again. Suicide rates, already high, would increase. Hasan was out to imprison or kill American soldiers and demoralize Muslims within the US Armed Forces by encouraging Muslim soldiers to feel guilty about fighting other Muslims, “It must be hard for you to balance Islamic beliefs that might be conflicting with the current war; feelings of guilt; Is it what you expected” yet he advised his fellow psychiatrists “Don’t doubt their loyalty to U.S. God vs Country.” He would quote this Qu’ranic passage, “And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his punishment is hell. He shall abide in it and Allah will send his wrath upon him and curse him and prepare for him a painful chastisement. Do not kill anyone whose killing Allah has forbidden, except for a just cause.” Hasan did dawa (Islamic proselytizing) work among his colleagues and openly expressed his opposition to America fighting Muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq.


On May 17, 2007 Scott Moran, MAJ, MC Program Director NCC Psychiatry Residency Training generated this memo:

The Faculty has serious concerns about CPT Hasan’s professionalism and work ethic. Clinically he is competent to deliver safe patient care. But he demonstrates a pattern of poor judgment and a lack of professionalism. In his PGY-2 year, he was counseled for inappropriately discussing religious topics with his assigned patients. He also required a period of in-program remediation when he was discovered to have not documented appropriately an ER encounter with a homicidal patient who subsequently eloped from the ER. He did successfully remediate this problem. At the end of his PGY-2 year, he was placed on administrative probation by the NCC GMEC for failure to take and pass USMLE Step 3 and to obtain an unrestricted state medical license by the end of his PGY-2 year; as a result he was not promoted to PGY-3 on time. He did eventually complete step 3 and get a license and was promoted to PGY-3. He was counseled for having a poor record of attendance at didactics and lower than expected PRITE scores. One year he failed to show for his PRITE examination at all. During his PGY-3 year, he was counseled for being consistently late to NNMC morning report. During his PGY-4 year, he was discovered to have only seen 30 outpatients in 38 week of outpatient continuity clinic. He was required to make this missed clinic time up using his elective. He failed his HGT/WGT screening and was found to be out of standards with body fat % and was counseled on that. Lastly, he missed a night of call for MGMC ER and then did not respond to numerous pages by my office the next day. Take together; these issues demonstrate a lack of professionalism and work ethics. He is able to self-correct with supervision. However, at this point he should not need so much supervision. In spite of all of this, I am not able to say he is not competent to graduate nor do I think a period of academic probation now at the end of his training will be beneficial. He would be able to contain his behavior enough to complete any period of probation successfully. My purpose in writing this letter is to give the credentials committee the benefit of full disclosure and the opportunity to modify CPT Hasan’s plan of supervision following initial privileging. I did discuss this memo with CPT Hasan and informed him I would be adding it to his initial credentialing paperwork.

In the spring of 2008 when a group of key officials gathered for their monthly meeting in a Bethesda, Md., office, they did not know what to do about Hasan who had been trouble for six years. Both fellow students and faculty were disturbed by Hasan's behavior — which they variously called disconnected, aloof, paranoid, belligerent, and schizoid. The officials say he antagonized some students and faculty by espousing what they perceived to be extremist Islamic views. His supervisors at Walter Reed had even reprimanded him for telling at least one patient that "Islam can save your soul." One official involved in the conversations had reportedly told colleagues that he worried that if Hasan deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan, he might leak secret military information to Islamic extremists. Another official reportedly wondered aloud to colleagues whether Hasan might be capable of committing fratricide, like the Muslim U.S. Army sergeant who, in 2003, killed two fellow soldiers and injured 14 others by setting off grenades at a base in Kuwait. NPR reported, “So why didn't officials act on their concerns and seek to remove Hasan from his duties, or at least order him to receive a mental health evaluation? Interviews with these officials suggest that a chain of unrelated events and factors deterred them. For one thing, Walter Reed and most medical institutions have a cumbersome and lengthy process for expelling doctors, involving hearings and potential legal battles. As a result, sources say, key decision-makers decided it would be too difficult, if not unfeasible, to put Hasan on probation and possibly expel him from the program. Second, some of Hasan's supervisors and instructors had told colleagues that they repeatedly bent over backward to support and encourage him, because they didn't have clear evidence that he was unstable, and they worried they might be "discriminating" against Hasan because of his seemingly extremist Islamic beliefs.”


Al-Awlaki said that Hasan first reached out to him in an e-mail dated December 17, 2008. He described Hasan introducing himself and writing: "Do you remember me? I used to pray with you at the Virginia mosque." Initially, Al-Awlaki said he did not recall Hasan and did not reply to the e-mail. But after Hasan sent two or three more e-mails, Al-Awlaki said he "started to remember who he was," Al-Awlaki said it was clear from his e-mails that Nidal trusted me. Nidal told me: 'I speak with you about issues that I never speak with anyone else'" Hasan informed him that he had become a devout Muslim around the time Al-Awlaki was preaching at Dar al-Hijrah, in 2001 and 2002. "Maybe Nidal was affected by one of my lectures?" Al-Awlaki said Hasan's alleged shooting spree was allowed under Islam because it was a form of jihad. "There are some people in the United States who said this shooting has nothing to do with Islam, that it was not permissible under Islam but I would say it is permissible…those people have let me down…America was the one who first brought the battle to Muslim countries."

Beginning late December 2008 the NSA and FBI reported Major Hasan exchanged 20 e-mail messages with Al-Qaeda spiritual leader Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki. The in early reports the FBI stated that the emails were sent in the form of questions about the American Military and Islam, seemingly for a project Hasan was working on regarding Muslims in the US military. The FBI saw communications asking when is jihad appropriate, and whether it is permissible if there are innocents killed in a suicide attack. Hasan told Awlaki he couldn't wait to join him in the discussions they would having over wine in the afterlife. Going to Al-Awlaki who was a well know Al-Qaeda spiritual leader meant that Hasan wanted his questions about his upcoming mission answered affirmatively. Imam Al-Awlaki had replaced “His Eminence” Shayk Omar Abdel Rahman as the chief Qu’ranic authority of Al-Qaeda. Rahman preached that jihad is the sixth pillar of Islam therefore it is the duty of every Muslim to kill the kuffar infidels – every member of another religion with a focus on Christians, Jews and Hindus. Hasan wrote, “Concept of Jihad Islam a Muslim holy war or spiritual struggle against infidels.” On December 23, 2008, days after he said Hasan first e-mailed him Al-Awlaki posted these words online "The bullets of the fighters of Afghanistan and Iraq are a reflection of the feelings of the Muslims towards America." In the e-mails Hasan questioned U.S. involvement in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and often used "evidence from sharia law that what America was doing should be confronted." Al-Awlaki "They say American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan should be killed, so how can they say the American soldier should not be killed at the moment they are going to Iraq and Afghanistan?"

By contacting Imam Al-Awlaki Hasan demonstrated a proclivity for violence just as he would have if a Nazi contacted a skinhead leader. None of this, however, was taken seriously enough to follow him, interview him, tap his phone, bug his conversations, and open an investigation into his good buddy Duane Reasoner. Any intelligence analyst could see something was amiss here especially since Al-Awlaki had been jailed by the Government of Yemen. This should have set of alarm bells throughout the intelligence community.

The first batch of Hasan's e-mails was sent by agents in San Diego, to the bureau's Washington field office, where a terrorism task force began to assess them in December 2008. But months later, additional messages emerged. Those e-mails were reviewed only in San Diego, where authorities determined they did not pose a national security risk. The FBI said without going into details about the process, that "all of the e-mails were known." The FBI dropped an inquiry into the matter after deciding that the messages warranted no further action because they gave no indication that he was likely to engage in violence and were protected by the right to free speech. The FBI also claimed it was under the impression that this contact was part of some academic research Hasan was doing; but no research paper ever surfaced and the content of the emails belied this. There are several possibilities to explain this incompetence; the FBI Agent in charge of the investigation was a mole (unlikely), the FBI in San Diego did not want to admit that they had been unable to snag Al-Awlaki in relation to 9/11 even though it was investigating him during the time he was working with two 9/11 shaheeds so it downplayed his importance, or the FBI was trying to be politically correct and what happened to the intelligence community was that it was progressively weakened by stealth Islamist organizations such as CAIR and the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. America has a tradition of at least trying to treat all religious groups equally and these two subversive organizations along with their Leftist America hating allies in the ACLU, the Center for Constitutional Rights and the National Lawyers Guild play on this constitutional tradition with the ultimate intent of destroying freedom of religion in America and imposing Shar’ia Law, a system that would exterminate the ACLU, Center for Constitutional Rights etc. The long term pathological strategy of the terrorist support lobby in America had worked. Because of “political correctness” foisted on America by Islamists disguised as Civil Rights advocates nothing was done about Hasan. Everyone was afraid to be accused of profiling and discrimination, after all Hasan had a right to his beliefs, so he was passed around like a hot falafel ball.

Additionally the FBI discovered Hasan transferred funds to Pakistan which went toward the furthering of jihad. In the months before the shootings, Al-Awlaki and Hasan discussed how Hasan could make several transactions of less than $10,000, a threshold for reporting to U.S. authorities. Of course Hasan did not explicitly vow to fund terrorist activities or evade tax and reporting laws for contributions, as he did not just fall off a turnip truck. A source told the Washington Post, "I believe they were interested in the money for operational-type aspects, and knowing that he had funds and wouldn't be around to use them, they were very eager to get those funds." Hassan wrote this on Scrib’d in May 2009,

“There was a grenade thrown amongst a group of American soldiers. One of the soldiers, feeling that it was too late for everyone to flee jumped on the grave with the intention of saving his comrades. Indeed he saved them. He intentionally took his life (suicide) for a noble cause i.e. saving the lives of his soldier. To say that this soldier committed suicide is inappropriate. It’s more appropriate to say he is a brave hero that sacrificed his life for a more noble cause. Scholars have paralleled this to suicide bombers whose intention, by sacrificing their lives, is to help save Muslims by killing enemy soldiers. If one suicide bomber can kill 100 enemy soldiers because they were caught off guard that would be considered a strategic victory. Their intention is not to die because of some despair. The same can be said for the Kamikazes in Japan. They died (via crashing their planes into ships) to kill the enemies for the homeland. You can call them crazy I you want but their act was not one of suicide that is despised by Islam. So the scholar’s main point is that "IT SEEMS AS THOUGH YOUR INTENTION IS THE MAIN ISSUE" and Allah (SWT) knows best.” "subhanu wa ta'alah" which translates as "Glorified and Exalted".


In July 2009 at Fort Hood Hasan made contact with 18-year-old Duane Scott Reasoner. Reasoner is an African-American Army brat and Muslim convert from Copperas Cove, Texas. Prior to moving to Texas Duane’s father was stationed at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland. Aberdeen Proving Ground is the Army's oldest active proving ground, one of the world's foremost research development, testing, and training facilities for military weapons and equipment. After evening prayers Hasan would often buy a fish dinner for Reasoner at the Golden Corral, a chain buffet restaurant. Besides mentioning that he prayed for a wife, the conversation almost never strayed from religion, Reasoner said, describing Hasan as warm and caring. “He felt he was supposed to quit, in the Koran, it says you are not supposed to have alliances with Jews or Christians, and if you are killed in the military fighting against Muslims, you will go to hell.” Manager Vera Brooks said Hasan, dressed in typical civilian clothes, was a regular there, eating by himself almost every weekend. The night before the shootings, Hasan and Reasoner went as usual to the Golden Corral. Reasoner said Hasan acted as he always did. No red flags. "Nothing was out of the ordinary," he said. This was a lie. Contrast his with what he told the BBC after the event,

“I’m not going to condemn Nidal for what he did. I don’t know why he did it. I will not, absolutely not, condemn him for what he had done though. If he had done it for selfish reasons I still will not condemn him. He’s my brother in the end. I will never condemn him. Well, that’s the way it is. I don’t speak for the community here but me personally I will not condemn him. They (the victims) were troops who were going to Afghanistan and Iraq to kill Muslims. I honestly have no pity for them. It’s just like the majority of the people that will hear this, after five or six minutes they’ll be shocked, after that they’ll forget about them and go on their day.”

Reasoner acted as an internet intermediary between Hasan and domestic Islamist terrorists. Brian Ross of ABC News reported that in March of 2007, Duane created a YouTube account under the name "ooklepookle." He has used the handle on other accounts as well, but they can always be traced back to Duane Reasoner Jr. On his YouTube account, Reasoner chose as favorites 14 different videos by Anwar al-Awlaki along with videos featuring Osama Bin Laden, the Taliban, Shayk Omar Abdul Rahman and Adam Gadahn; a once-Jewish member of Al Qaeda. In December 2008, Reasoner created a profile on Stickam.com. Under personal tags, he wrote "extremist, fundamentalist, mujahedeen, Muslim." He posted a picture of the U.S. Capitol in ruins, as well as a picture of a Muslim warrior on horseback and a rendering of the "Sword of Tawheed."

On his MySpace account, created in March 2008, Reasoner called himself "Salah ad-Din," after the famous Muslim Sultan who won back Jerusalem from the Crusaders. Reasoner also referred to himself as "Salah ad-Din" on Facebook. On an unknown date, Reasoner created a photobucket.com account. Among the photos on that account is a composite shot of Osama Bin Laden's head rearing above the White House, which is surrounded by flames and armed men in Arab dress. The picture is captioned "Osama caliphate." Another picture shows the White House with an Islamic flag above it and the caption "Nation under Islamic Law." On an unknown date Reasoner became a subscriber to the YouTube channel of a YouTube user named Sahab929 who posted videos of al-Qaeda leaders Osama Bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri. "Sahab" is the name of the media company that produces al-Qaeda's videos. Ooklepookle also visited anti-Israel websites and used proxy servers.


On August 1, 2009, in response to a video that was posted on YouTube by user IslamicRevolution TV, "ooklepookle" posted the comment, "Ya Abdullah do you have any vids on martyrdom operations or the ruling on them." The user answered, "No I don't but look around online on the Jihadi blogs." Hasan purchased the murder weapon on August 1, 2009. IslamicRevolution TV is the media arm of RevolutionMuslim. On August 23, 2009 al-Awlaki was banned from speaking via teleconference at a London event to raise money for Muslims held in Guantanamo Bay.

Because the Hasan investigation was closed the FBI did not know of the association between Hasan and Reasoner. Had it investigated further and discovered this relationship it might have become clear that Hasan was in indirect communication with RevolutionMuslim, which is run by foulest moral degenerate in America, Yousef al-Khattab, a convert to Islam formerly known as Joseph Leonard Kaplan. Kaplan spent a good deal of his youth in a New Jersey mental hospital then joined Neturei Karta, a group of Jews who believe that the destruction of the State of Israel will bring about the coming of the Messiah. He was the chauffeur for Neturei Karta “Rabbi” Joseph Freiman when they all lived together in Washington Heights. While Frieman was in the car he would propagandize this weak minded fool about how Hamas were "heroes for blowing Jews up in Israel" sic and other pro-Hamas, pro-Arab terror statements that sunk into Kaplan’s easy to fill empty mind. Kaplan left Washington Heights for Satmar Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It was no great leap from this traitor with a yarmulke to out and out defection to Islam. Soon after he flew to Israel converted and officially joined the Arab Nazis of Al Qaeda, all as part of his goal to try and murder Jews! Yousef al-Khattab promotes violence and he has advocated attacks on synagogues, throwing drain cleaner at Jews, attacking Jewish social institutions and more. The way he gets away with it is that he phrases everything as a prayer, “I pray to Allah that Jewish babies burn!” and his makes it fall under Freedom of Religion. As a result of these threats he has received widespread media coverage.


Neil Bryant Vinas, a young New Yorker who has pleaded guilty to plotting to attack trains on the Long Island Rail Road, met with al-Khattab. Al-Khattab said Vinas and “some brothers” traveled to Atlantic City, New Jersey, and had dinner with him. Al-Khattab said they considered him something of a hero because he left Israel and converted to Islam. Al-Khattab also influenced Tarek Mehanna, now under indictment in Boston, Massachusetts, on charges of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists, and Tarek’s friend, Daniel Maldonado, who pleaded guilty before a federal judge in Texas to receiving military training from Islamic militants in Somalia. Al-Khattab received this letter from Mehanna:

26th of Dhu al-Qa'dah, 1430 / 14th of November, 2009. In the Name of Allah, I praise Allah and invoke peace and blessings on the Messenger of Allah. First of all, I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your immense support. Each and every person who is praying for my family and I, who has written a letter, and who attended a hearing or raised general awareness of what is going is known to Allah, and I ask that they each be rewarded with the good of this life and the next, and that Allah relieves each of you of trials and calamities just as you have helped to relieve my own...I cannot speak in detail about the charges and accusations against me, but suffice to say that nobody who truly knows me would for a second believe the utter lies and sensationalist garbage that has been peddled around in the media since my arrest.

Duane has lost his job as a substitute teacher and has gone into hiding. Without Hasan’s testimony he will probably go free but will have to be on the lookout for extra-judicial justice as this traitor should have his ass kicked.

Hasan was transferred to the Darnall Army Medical Center Fort Hood, Texas for deployment in July 2009 and on August 1, 2009 he purchased the Belgian made FN Herstal 5.7 pistol he used to perpetrate his act of mass murder. The FBI was made aware of his purchase but the information could not be passed on to the Joint Terrorist Taskforce as the investigation of Hasan had been closed. The second gun was an older model Smith & Wesson .357-caliber revolver. It was not fired. The revolver was so old investigators doubted it could be traced to a specific purchase. It is alleged Hasan had hired an attorney to prevent his deployment but none has come forward. In November 5, 2009 he perpetrated the Fort Hood Massacre.

Since Hasan was making jihad he was exempt from Sharia Law. Women employed at a strip club Starz in Killeen, Texas, told ABC News they remembered Hasan and that he visited the all-nude club at least three times, bringing his own six pack of beer. According to the British Telegraph, Mohamed Atta, the pilot of the first hijacked aircraft that crashed into the World Trade Centre, and his fellow shaheeds spent some of their time in Las Vegas at the Olympic Bar, a downtown strip club. Hasan was videotaped dressed in white prior to the event the color traditionally worn by the shaheed. He left his decrepit apartment complex to attend 6 a.m. prayers at a mosque near Fort Hood, which was subsequently a garbology target of the FBI. He said goodbye to fellow Muslims there and asked forgiveness from one man for any past offenses. He went to a shooting range and emptied out his safe deposit box. When he committed the act he bowed his head for several seconds in prayer to Allah, stood up and drew a high-powered pistol. "Allah Akbar," he said -- "G-D is great." Hasan believed, “Allah created life and death the He might put you to the test and find out which of you acquitted himself best.”

After Hasan’s attack in Fort Hood Al-Awlaki stated,

“Nidal Hassan is a hero. He is a man of conscience who could not bear living the contradiction of being a Muslim and serving in an army that is fighting against his own people. This is a contradiction that many Muslims brush aside and just pretend that it doesn’t exist. Any decent Muslim cannot live, understanding properly his duties towards his Creator and his fellow Muslims, and yet serve as a US soldier. The US is leading the war against terrorism which in reality is a war against Islam. Its army is directly invading two Muslim countries and indirectly occupying the rest through its stooges. Nidal opened fire on soldiers who were on their way to be deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. How can there be any dispute about the virtue of what he has done? In fact the only way a Muslim could Islamically justify serving as a soldier in the US army is if his intention is to follow the footsteps of men like Nidal. The heroic act of brother Nidal also shows the dilemma of the Muslim American community. Increasingly they are being cornered into taking stances that would either make them betray Islam or betray their nation. Many amongst them are choosing the former. The Muslim organizations in America came out in a pitiful chorus condemning Nidal’s operation. “The fact that fighting against the US army is an Islamic duty today cannot be disputed. No scholar with a grain of Islamic knowledge can defy the clear cut proofs that Muslims today have the right -rather the duty- to fight against American tyranny. Nidal has killed soldiers who were about to be deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan in order to kill Muslims. The American Muslims who condemned his actions have committed treason against the Muslim Ummah and have fallen into hypocrisy. Allah (swt) says: Give tidings to the hypocrites that there is for them a painful punishment – Those who take disbelievers as allies instead of the believers. Do they seek with them honor [through power]? But indeed, honor belongs to Allah entirely. (al-Nisa 136-137) The inconsistency of being a Muslim today and living in America and the West in general reveals the wisdom behind the opinions that call for migration from the West. It is becoming more and more difficult to hold on to Islam in an environment that is becoming more hostile towards Muslims. May Allah grant our brother Nidal patience, perseverance and steadfastness and we ask Allah to accept from him his great heroic act. Ameen.”

Yemeni journalist Abdulelah Hider Shaea interviewed al-Awlaki in November 2009, after Al-Awlaki’s website was taken off the internet. Al-Awlaki acknowledged his correspondence with Hasan, and said he "neither ordered nor pressured Maj. Nidal M. Hasan to harm Americans.” This went against everything Al-Awlaki stood for, violence, mass murder in the name of Allah. Print, video and audio files of Al-Awlaki’s words have been found on the private hard drives of terrorism suspects in Canada in 2006 and in the United States in 2007 and 2008. He also wrote congratulations to al Shabaab, an Islamic extremist group leading an insurgency in Somalia, after it apparently used the first U.S.-citizen suicide bomber last fall. Al-Awlaki said Hasan arrived at his own conclusions regarding the acceptability of violence in Islam, and said he was not the one to initiate this. What else could he have said? Al-Awlaki was under investigation by the Government of Yemen for his ties to Al-Qaeda. Shaea summarized their relationship by stating, "Nidal was providing evidence to Anwar, not vice versa." Asked whether Hasan mentioned Fort Hood as a target in his e-mails, Shaea declined to comment. Why would the interviewer sent by the Washington Post to Yemen decline to comment if the emails had not mentioned Fort Hood?

Referring to a post on his blog praising the shootings after they occurred, al-Alwaki said he "blessed the act because it was against a military target. And the soldiers who were killed were not normal soldiers, but those who were trained and prepared to go to Iraq and Afghanistan."





In 1980, James Zogby joined with former Senator James Abourezk to form the ADC. The ADC has 18,000 members and is the largest grass roots Arab-American organization and claims that its mission is defending the political rights and promoting the cultural heritage of the more than three million Americans of Arab descent. Senator James Abourezk is definitely a terrorist sympathizer – he was willing to testify for Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman but was prevented from doing so. The Senator served one term – 1973 to 1979 – in the Senate and one in the House of Representatives from 1971 to 1973. The ADC is part of our “Terror Lobby” and uses civil liberties issues to make it easier for Islamists to operate by lobbying against “anti-terror” legislation on the highest levels of government. In order to do so they recruit the best Islamist subversive minds in America. Sara Najjar-Wilson is the ADC’s National Executive Director. Sara is an experienced attorney with more than 30 years of service in the Federal government, having served as a Trial Attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Division and as a Senior Attorney in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Office of the General Counsel. Among other leadership positions, she has served as Chairperson of the Federal Litigation Section of the Federal Bar Association (FBA) and as the Program Chairperson of the Washington Foreign Law Society. Ms. Najjar-Wilson represented NASA in several “high profile” activities, including the interests of the families of the late Challenger astronauts. Among many honors and awards, Sara received the NASA Exceptional Service Medal. Former ADC National Executive Director, Kareem Shora, worked for ADC for ten years, and is now a Senior Policy Advisor to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties. In June 2004 the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee keynote speakers were Asa Hutchinson Undersecretary of the Department of Homeland Security and Teresa Heinz Kerry wife of Presidential Candidate John Kerry. To please the ADC Hutchinson promised that the Department of Homeland Security would eliminate the special registration for people who fit the profile of Arab terrorists program completely in the near future and pledged to deal with all travelers equally and without discrimination. That would make it easier for jihadis to board flights. The ADC announced that the Office of Inspector General (OIG) at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will be conducting an audit reviewing the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS) in early January 2010. This will make it easier for terrorist to enter the United States. The ADC wants to eviscerate or destroy the Patriot Act.

The Islamists will recruit fair minded liberals to participate in their own self destruction. Heinz Kerry, "John will be committed to a strong America, where our nation's laws are enforced without resorting to discrimination. He has always supported strong hate crime laws, and he believes that the practice of racial profiling should be prohibited." She had 57 Varieties of stupidity. She had not the slightest idea that this politically correct thinking was paving the way for Nidal Hasan to escape an FBI investigation. If anyone messed with Nidal Hasam, a Major in the United States Army, the ADC she and Hutchinson cozened up to would have attempted to destroy them via its connections of through the justice system as it has aside from its leadership it has numerous lawyers, including a few self-hating Jews, at its disposal.


“It’s frightening to think that an organization with clear-cut ties to terrorism could have a hand in influencing policy, especially national security policy, within our government. The investigations that we’re asking for are simple, and I’m hopeful that they will bring to light any and all information regarding the goals of CAIR.” – a statement by Rep. Sue Myrick Congresswoman from North Carolina.

CAIR, The Council on American-Islamic Relations is the stealth arm of the Hamas section of the Muslim Brotherhood, is a guilty as Hasan for the Fort Hood Massacre. This terrorist group had been allowed to poison and intimidate the FBI for decades. The FBI did not act because Hasan was Muslim and it was afraid of being accused of being sued for racial profiling and religious discrimination by CAIR. CAIR would have sued the FBI, FBI officials and individual agents. CAIR has a long history of litigiousness. For example CAIR represented a veteran of the American military and a doctor in trying to force the USG to grant them citizenship. CAIR was a complainant in the Flying Imam’s case where some Islamic clerics were denied a flight on U.S. Airways because they appeared to be suspicious. The lawsuit’s real purpose was to facilitate another 9/11. Like the ADC, CAIR is determined to security strip America as part of a hidden Islamist agenda. This document reveals CAIR’s strength. The FBI had to factor this into the equation when deciding whether or not to investigate Hasan. Before CAIR was linked to Hamas and cut off these Islamist terrorists passing themselves off a mainstream Muslim-Americans had plenty of contact with the FBI.


CAIR conducted religious sensitivity training sessions for the FBI. In 2006 CAIR stated that it “works closely with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to foster a positive partnership with the Muslim community that ensures the protection of all people’s civil rights. After the 9/11 attacks, CAIR’s executive director met with Robert Mueller, the director of the FBI. In 2004, senior CAIR officials met with Cassie Chandler, then Assistant Director for Public Affairs, and Gary Bald, then Assistant Director for Counterterrorism, in the FBI’s Washington, DC headquarters to discuss ways to improve the working relationship between CAIR and the FBI. In 2006, senior CAIR officials attended a meeting with FBI Deputy Director John Pistole in the FBI’s National Headquarters in Washington, DC. Currently, CAIR officials are providing on-going diversity training about Islam and Muslims to participants at the Counterterrorism Division of Federal Law Enforcement Training and Education Center (FLETC) in Glynco, GA. FLETC serves as an interagency law enforcement training organization for more than 80 Federal agencies. Recently CAIR officials gave seminars and lectures at The United States Army Central Command in Tampa and at USMA in West Point.”

During this time one FBI official gave CAIR a clean bill of health, “In a March 14, 2007 New York Times article, MichaeI RoIince, a retired F.B.I. officiaI who directed counterterrorism in the Washington field office from 2002 to 2005, said, ‘Of aII the groups, there is probabIy more suspicion about CAIR, but when you ask peopIe for coId hard facts, you get bIank stares.’” Rolince also gave Zacharias Moussaoui a clean bill of health: Moussaoui’s Defense attorney Edward B. MacMahon Jr. asked Michael E. Rolince then the retired head of the FBI's International Terrorism Operations Section, whether he knew that agent Harry Harry Samit had warned in an August 18, 2001 memo to his office that Moussaoui was a potential terrorist. "No," he answered at Moussaoui's death penalty trial. Rolince claimed to have never seen Samit’s report and anyway believed the report to be “suppositions, hunches and suspicions.” Steven Pomerantz and Oliver “Buck” Revell, both former FBI Agents, disagree with Rolince and believe CAIR is a terrorist support group.


In May 2007 CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism case. Sixteen months later the FBI cut off CAIR. This is from the CAIR website “The FBI severed relations with CAIR in October 2008. Shortly before the end of the Bush administration, FBI offices contacted many CAIR chapters stating that they were suspending some ties between the Washington-based civil rights and advocacy group and FBI field offices. The letters also stated that the FBI will continue to work with CAIR on civil rights issues impacting American Muslims. A number of anti-Muslim Internet sites have promoted the story as a means to smear CAIR. However, these same sites have been forced to admit that the Bush administration’s policy has not been fully accepted by local FBI officials. According to WorldNetDaily.com, a site many argue adopts a significant anti-Muslim tone: "F.B.I. sources, however, say the new policy has not been uniformly followed since it was put into effect late last summer. They say there is still political resistance to the rule, which has generated complaints from some in the Muslim community." (1/30/2009) CAIR is a civil rights and advocacy group that often challenged Bush administration policies. It is not surprising that we would be targeted in a purely political move by those in the previous administration who sought to prevent us from defending the civil rights of American Muslims. This campaign of smears and misinformation is an unfortunate legacy of the Bush administration's misguided and counterproductive efforts to marginalize mainstream American Muslim organizations. The true losers under this unfortunate policy are those FBI officials who will have their access to the mainstream American Muslim community restricted by the Bush administration’s directive that prevents them from taking part in the many public activities such as town hall meetings and diversity workshops sponsored by CAIR chapters. We hope the FBI will not be perceived as turning back the clock on the civil rights movement to a time when those who defended civil liberties were targeted, as was the case with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It should be noted that even if the Bush administration’s politically-motivated policy remains in place, CAIR chapters nationwide will continue to work with local law enforcement agencies and the FBI on issues related to our core mission of defending the civil rights of all Americans. Going forward, we will do our utmost to work with the new administration to ensure that public officials and representatives of law enforcement agencies hear the voices of American Muslims. We look forward to returning to normal relations with law enforcement now that there is a new administration.”

President Obama did not rescind that directive and so he is taking the fact that CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator seriously, ^

The FBI explained, "CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development in the United States v. Holy Land Foundation et al. (Cr. No. 3:04-240-P (N.D.TX.). During that trial, evidence was introduced that demonstrated a relationship among CAIR, individual CAIR founders (including its current President Emeritus and its Executive Director) and the Palestinian Committee. Evidence was also introduced that demonstrated a relationship between the Palestinian Committee and HAMAS, which was designated a terrorist organization in 1995. In light of that evidence, the FBI suspended all formal contacts between CAIR and the FBI. The FBI's decision to suspend formal contacts was not intended to reflect a wholesale judgment of the organization and its entire membership. Nevertheless, until we can resolve whether there continues to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and HAMAS, the FBI does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner."


Don’t dismiss the importance of unindicted co-conspirators, as the intelligence community did in the trial of Shaykh Omar Abdel Rahman. Usama bin Laden was on the Rahman Unindicted Co-Conspirator List under his nom de guerre “Abu Abdullah.” When Heni Lased (left) was arrested in Germany a major part of the evidence came from wiretaps made by Italian police in Milan during which Heni Lased and his associates discussed “a suffocating liquid that kills people efficiently.” Heni Lased wanted to “die a Shaheed”, while using poison gas to suffocate worshippers in the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris. The gas was to have been released with the help of a rudimentary bomb made from a converted pressure cooker. In another conversation, months before the September 11th Victory Heni Lased hinted that the “Sheik Abu Abdullah” was planning a major attack: “He is planning something because he has wished for a goal and he wants to carry it out. It is not a small thing.”

Waleed Abouel Nour was on the Rahman Unindicted Co-Conspirator List. Waleed Nour and Egyptian Mohamed el-Atriss were incorporators, registered agents and directors of Sphinx Trading Company located at 2828 Kennedy Boulevard in Jersey City that was founded in 1987. Sphinx Trading provided check cashing, mailbox services and international wiring services for the Gama’a al-Islamiyya’s Brooklyn / Jersey City cell. The Islamist assassin of Rabbi Meir Kahane, Said Nosair, had a mailbox there. Siddig Ali Siddig’s (one of the 1993 World Center crew) translation service was located at Box 161 2823 Kennedy Boulevard. El-Atriss claimed he met Nour while both were cab drivers in Newark, New Jersey and not through an Islamist network. Sphinx Trading was next door to the Afghan Refugee Services Center, a front group for Gama’a al-Islamiyya’s Brooklyn / Jersey City cell and the Al-Salaam Mosque, where Sheik Rahman preached. These outposts of Islamism were both located at 2824 Kennedy Boulevard. This author and Peter Lance visited Sphinx and confronted its employees.

Mohamed el-Atriss also ran a fake-document mill called All Services Plus on Paterson, New Jersey's Market Street that sold false identification papers to illegal immigrants and false international drivers licenses. El-Atriss provided September 11th Shaheeds Abdulaziz Alomari Khalid al-Midhar with some bogus identification. The FBI believed he did so unwittingly. Maybe he did but the Brothers went to Paterson for a specific reason, namely because they were aware of el-Atriss’ connection to what was left of the Gama’a al-Islamiyya’s Brooklyn / Jersey City.

When New Jersey authorities raided Mohamed al-Atriss’ operation in July 2001 he fled to Egypt but returned to the United States August 20, 2001 and was released on bail and went back in business. When the Paterson Police learned that documents from All Services Plus, El-Atriss' company, were uncovered at an apartment where some of the September 11th Shaheeds lived, the local police obtained search warrants for his al-Atriss’ home and business. He initially denied selling to the hijackers, but when further confronted apparently agreed after a download of the names of the September 11th Shaheeds was found in his office with the names he sold the ID to underlined. Detective Ernst was a major witness against al-Atriss: “We initially started to investigate Sphinx Trading Company as a potential money laundering operation. We identified ties to Middle Eastern countries, specifically Egypt and Saudi Arabia. We were asked to not pursue the investigation any further by a specific federal agency, who indicated to us that they had interest in that as well. We began to investigate -- we did a check through the Federal HIDTA System, which is a drug enforcement agency, intelligence system. They work with an intelligence gathering system called the EPIC System, which is the El Paso Information Center that provides intelligence to federal authorities. Through the EPIC System they classify, they being the FBI and U.S. Customs in a joint task force, have classified Waleed Abouel Nour, as a terrorist. When I specifically asked the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force to confirm that, they indicated to me that they would have to get back to me on that. And it's been several months and I haven't heard. But the initial indication from the EPIC System was that the FBI classified his partner in this incorporation as a terrorist. Mr. El-Atriss is listed on the bank records as the principal of the company. Also of interest, the location Sphinx Trading Company, 2828 Kennedy Boulevard is also red flagged by the FBI as a known location that was involved in the first bombing of the World Trade Center with the Blind Sheik Rahman. He had received mail at that location. And it was also indicated to me by the FBI that several of the hijackers involved in the September 11th Events also had mailboxes at that location.”


Randall Todd Royer, a leading member of CAIR now locked up in a cage 23 hours a day was a member of Lashkar-e-Taiba the group that sent its Islamist suicidal mass murderers to Mombai Chabad House to kill its Rabbi and his wife. Royer, who served as a communications specialist and a civil rights coordinator at CAIR was indicted and arrested for his association with Lashkar-e-Taiba. He traveled to Pakistan, did propaganda work for it, and “fired at Indian positions in Kashmir” with a machine gun and Rocket Propelled Grenade. In addition, his indictment states that Royer “possessed in his automobile an AK-47-style rifle and 219 rounds of ammunition” in September 2001. It was charged that on or about May 8, 2003, in Gaithersburg, Maryland, codefendant Masoud Ahmad Khan possessed a photograph downloaded from the Internet of the FBI Headquarters building in Washington, D.C. In November Judge Leonie Brinkema sentenced three of Royer’s co-defendants to 11½, 11¼ and 3 years and 10 months in prison. Royer received a twenty-year prison sentence. CAIR has consistently defended jihadi leaders and as stated in May 2007 was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism case. CAIR termed the conviction of the operatives of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing as “a travesty of justice.” The conviction of Sheik Rahman was called a “hate crime.” CAIR chairman, Omar Ahmed, said in 1998: “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Qu’ran... should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.” CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper (left) made this clear: “I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t want the Government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future.” The FBI’s former chief of counter-terrorism, Steven Pomerantz, bestowed this compliment on CAIR: “CAIR, its leaders and its activities effectively give aid to international terrorist groups.” CAIR-New York’s Executive Director Ghazi Khankan solicited contributions for the families of September 11th detainees and said that American Taliban John Walker Lindh was a “misguided young American Muslim” who should not have gone overseas to “get involved in local politics.” Ghazi Khankan was an Islamic Center of Long Island officer until 2004, director of both interfaith affairs and communications. Shortly after 9/11, he told The New York Times that the U.S. government hadn't proven Osama bin Laden's role in the attacks: “We need to have proof. We need to have facts. If there is something wrong, let’s get together through the United Nations, not act as a lynch mob.” His speech at a fund-raiser in Virginia that October 2001 was recorded: “Why is it assumed that Muslims were behind the attack? We know at least three people assumed to be hijackers who are still alive in the Middle East. The question is, who is impersonating these Muslim names? Who benefits from assuming Muslims are behind this tragedy and who benefits from this tragedy?” That same month, Khankan gave Newsday his view on who had really perpetrated the atrocities: “What about the world Zionist network? Why are you in the media not looking at them?” In 1999 CAIR received $250,000 loan from the Saudi-run Wahhabist Islamic Development Bank to buy land in Washington, D.C., construct a headquarters facility. On September 9, 2001, at a rally to support Jamil Al-Amin , Sheik Hamza Yusuf Hanson, a convert to Islam and a member of CAIR who is known as a moderate Muslim stated that “America faced a terrible fate” and that Sheik Rahman was unjustly tried and condemned against any standards of justice in any legal system. The FBI went to interview Yusuf to determine whether this statement meant that he had prior knowledge of the September 11thEvent, which of course he said he did not. When agents came to his San Francisco home on September 20, 2001, they learned he was meeting with President Bush. Later the website of Yusuf’s organization vowed to send part of any money it collected to the Benevolence International Foundation, a front for jihadi. CAIR received $500,000 from Saudi prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, one of the world's richest men. If not for this litigious group with unlimited resources there would have been action taken against Major Hasan. They succeeded in tying the hands of intelligence agencies via the justice system and their goal of killing Americans was achieved. CAIR was forced to put out a page dispelling all the rumors about it. CAIR is the subject of an excellent book entitled The Muslim Mafia and several members of Congress have called for an investigation of this terrorist support group.
