Joe Lieberman has given the far left even more reason to hate him.

The former Democratic vice-presidential nominee unequivocally labeled the Fort Hood, Texas, killing spree as the work of a “self radicalized, home-grown terrorist.”

Lieberman is not mincing words like the news media and administration officials did following the massacre. Tortured language to avoid the obvious seemed to be their preferred script.

President Obama and other Democrats appear to be unwilling to acknowledge that terrorism remains a threat. Meanwhile, many in the media continue to tiptoe around saying Maj. Nadal Malik Hasan’s name aloud and reporting on his Muslim background.

Janet Napolitano, head of Homeland Security, expressed concern about a backlash against Muslims.

But in light of the revelation that Hasan managed to be promoted to the rank of major in the Army, the following needs to be confronted:

  • Before the shooting, Hasan said goodbye to friends and gave away the majority of his possessions, which included copies of the Quran

  • He reportedly expressed happiness at the death of a U.S. soldier killed in an attack at a military recruitment center by an American convert to Islam

  • Hasan allegedly yelled out the Arabic phrase “Allahu Akbar” just before he shot down 13 people and wounded 30 others

  • Hasan is believed to be the author of Internet posts that praise similar kinds of attacks

  • Classmates in a master's program at a military college had complained to superiors about Hasan for his anti-American views, including a presentation he gave that justified suicide bombing

  • Hasan told the same classmates that Islamic law trumps the U.S. Constitution

  • Hasan attended a mosque at the same time (2001) and under the same radical imam, and heard the same extremist teaching as two of the 9/11 hijackers

    Lieberman plans a thorough investigation, as chairman of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee. He speaks with remarkable clarity.

    “If Hasan was showing signs, saying to people that he had become an Islamist extremist, the U.S. Army has to have zero tolerance,” Lieberman told Fox News. “He should have been gone.”
