Conservative pundit David Horowitz is calling for the firing of Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey, citing a recent interview in which Casey said the Army hadn’t missed anything in dealing with Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the man accused of killing 13 people last week during a rampage at Fort Hood, Texas.
“You have to view this segment of the Meet the Press interview with Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey to believe it — to believe that our Army could be led by someone as incompetent in national security matters as this man showed he was," argued Horowitz.
The pundit went on to decry the general's claiming that the army hadn’t “missed anything” in regard to the in-your-face warning signs exhibited by Major Hasan -- that he was a fanatical Muslim jihadist and an imminent threat to massacre our troops, by admitting that the army’s diversity policies had trumped its security policies, Horowitz wrote on his blog.

“As horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse,” Casey said in his interview.
This sentiment really set Horowitz off:
"Sure," he blasted, "let’s put weapons in the hands of Muslim terrorists rather than ask whether a Muslim who attends a jihadist Mosque, worships an Imam who openly preaches war against the United States, and who himself calls for the killing of infidels might be a security problem. General Casey’s remarks in this interview might recommend him for psychiatric evaluation except that this obvious psychosis is a political epidemic that has now revealed itself as the gravest threat to our nation’s security after the terrorists themselves."
