Hasan's Pakistan Connection: Fort Hood Killer May Have Sent Cash to Taliban Insurgents

Nope, no terrorism here. Move along ...

From the Dallas Morning News, "
Fort Hood Shootings Suspect May Have Wired Money to Pakistan":

A Pakistani father mourns death of his son after a car bombing in Charsadda, Pakistan, Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2009.

Authorities have been examining whether Fort Hood massacre suspect Nidal Malik Hasan wired money to Pakistan in recent months, an action that one senior lawmaker said would raise serious questions about Hasan's possible connections to militant Islamic groups.

Rep. Pete Hoekstra, R-Mich., said sources "outside of the [intelligence] community" learned about Hasan's possible connections to the Asian country, which faces a massive Islamist insurgency and is widely believed to be Osama bin Laden's hiding place.

Hoekstra, the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, would not identify the sources. But he said "they are trying to follow up on it because they recognize that if there are communications – phone or money transfers with somebody in Pakistan – it just raises a whole other level of questions."

I dont believe that these people cant see that this isnt terrorism by definition. They just are too afraid of offending muslims and reaping the punishment for doing so.
