Major Nidal Hasan confirms that the prospect of deep-cover Islamic jihadists in the U.S. military is a reality, not some paranoid fantasy. Therefore, the military ought to be more careful about who it lets in. And contrary to the ACLU, there is no “right” for anyone to be in the U.S. military. Teenage recruits such as Aaron Nemelka should not have to worry about potential killers in his own ranks.
When someone like Major Hasan telegraphs the danger signals, as it were with a flare gun, officials should not look the other way. Rather, they should be vigilant to protect innocent life, by any means necessary. Otherwise it may turn out as the Wall Street Journal described the aftermath of Major Hasan’s killing spree.
“In all, 13 caskets, each draped with an American flag, were loaded into a C-17 transport plane on Friday afternoon, to be flown to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware.”
Justice delayed is justice denied, and a process of nearly three years will only encourage other jihadists to have a go themselves. Given that reality, the military would do well to train for this kind of episode. Kimberly Munley fought bravely but the next time a jihadist starts gunning down American soldiers, troops and police alike should aim for multiple head shots, hollow points right between the eyes.
Like Major Hasan’s beard, that might break some military rule, but even in the Army it’s better to be judged by twelve than carried by six.
