Malkin Column: How Many More Nidal Hasans Are in Our Ranks

September 3rd, 2013 6:27 PM
A military jury sentenced unrepentant Fort Hood jihadist Nidal Hasan to death on Wednesday. But if another murderous Muslim soldier's case is any indication, Hasan may be sitting in the catbird seat for years to come. And our men and women in uniform will remain endangered by Islamic vigilantes in their own ranks. Remember Sgt. Hasan Akbar? On March 23, 2003, this hate-filled soldier with the…

Bozell Column: Fort Hood Justice, Delayed and Ignored

June 25th, 2013 5:33 PM
A federal judge has finally selected a trial date for accused Fort Hood mass-murderer Nidal Malik Hasan – July 9. We’ll see if it actually happens.

Um, Fort Hood? WashPost Headline Cites Boston as First Terror 'Success

April 16th, 2013 12:20 PM
One of the Washington Post's front-page stories on the Boston bombing had this headline when the story turned to page A7: "After a decade of plots foiled or botched, one success." That's a strange headline that seems to forget the "successful" terror attack at Fort Hood.

ABC Ignores Own Scoop, Skips Latest on Fort Hood Victims Being Denied

April 2nd, 2013 4:59 PM
It's not often that media outlets ignore their own scoops, but that's what ABC is doing.

Imam to FBI (2003): ‘U.S. Response to 9/11 Could Be Considered Jiha

August 29th, 2010 11:34 PM
Defenders of controversial imam Feisal Abdul Rauf have been touting his past efforts in offering counterterrorism advice to the FBI as a way to illustrate his bridge-building intentions.  Much like other reports, they tend to gloss over the more controversial aspects of Rauf's statements.  But, as is typical with the Ground Zero mosque imam, it can be demonstrated that he is frequently speaking…

April 19th, 2010 11:39 PM
Believe it or not, CNN - the same CNN which has recently dismissed the Fort Hood terrorist as lonely, has featured a member of ‘Jihad U' as a teacher of the ‘nuts and bolts of Islam', and which has run three separate stories interviewing the father of radical jihadist, Anwar al-Awlaki - has actually taken interest in a jihadist threat of physical violence upon the creators of South Park. It seems…

A Blind Eye to Jihad: What the Media Doesn’t Want You to Know about

April 12th, 2010 4:24 PM
