U.S. intelligence agencies were aware months ago that Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan was attempting to make contact with an individual associated with al Qaeda, two American officials briefed on classified material in the case told ABC News.

Army knew suspected Fort Hood gunman had contact with al Qaeda recruiter.

According to the officials, the Army was informed of Hasan’s contact, but it is unclear what, if anything, the Army did in response.

[Hayden’s Note: If the Army in fact knew that one of their Majors was in contact with the supposed mortal enemy of the United States, al-Qaeda (al-CIA-duh!) I THINK they would do something about it.]

Rep. Peter Hoekstra (R-MI), the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said that he requested the CIA and other intelligence agencies brief the committee on what was known, if anything, about Hasan by the U.S. intelligence community, only to be refused.

In response, Hoekstra issued a document preservation request to four intelligence agencies. The letter, dated November 7th, was sent to directors Dennis Blair (DNI), Robert Mueller (FBI), Lt....

The universality of war propaganda

A soldier with the Russian army in Afghanistan recounts what they believed about their mission

By Glenn Greenwald

I’m traveling still today, but I wanted to note an amazing Op-Ed that was referenced in a book I’m reading:  the Op-Ed is by Nikolai Lanine, published in The Toronto Globe and Mail in November, 2006.  Lanine was drafted into the Russian Army at the age of 18 and spent several years as part of the Russian occupying force in Afghanistan.  Thereafter, he moved to Canada, and in 2006, his wife’s first cousin, a medic in the Canadian Army, was killed in Afghanistan.  Lanine wrote this column after attending his funeral, and recounted what he and his comrades in the Russian Army believed they were doing in Afghanistan:

I identified with the Canadian soldiers at the funeral mourning the loss of their friend. Like them, I went to Afghanistan believing in “fighting terrorism” and “liberating Afghans.” During my first mission, we were protecting refugees escaping an area that was under attack by the mujahedeen. I was deeply affected by their misery, and by the poverty and suffering of the Afghan people in general....

Senior Official in Afghanistan Resigns Over U.S. Strategy Former Marine Says It Will Take Decades And Billions of Dollars to Achieve Success in Afghanistan Via: ABC News: A key U.S. official in Afghanistan has resigned in protest over U.S. policy in the war-torn region, as the Obama administration deliberates its future strategy there. Matthew Hoh, 36, a senior foreign service officer, wrote a four-page letter to Ambassador Nancy Powell, director general of the foreign service at the State Department, to express his “doubts and reservations about our current strategy and planned future strategy,” as first reported by the Washington Post today. “To put simply, I fail to see the value or the worth in the continued U.S. casualties or expenditures of resources in support

Helo Crash with Soldiers and DEA aboard; 14 dead

Posted on Oct 26, 2009 in Police, Military, & War

Hayden's Opinion:  After reading through this article, I can't help but stop and wonder about the 'drug raid' that brought this on.  Presumably, DEA Agents were the 'civilian law enforcement agents' that were killed in this crash, attached to the Embassy located there.  Once again, the 'war on drugs', in the middle of the 'war on terror', has claimed innocent lives over a plant.  A naturally occurring plant.  When you take the black market aspect away from narcotics and give it a free market make-over, the mafias, cartels, street thugs, and narco-traffickers lose all incentives.  They must then engage in a regulated, taxed business.  You don't think that would help?  You say that the narco-dealers would just go undergorund or still operate on the black market?  Well, the consu

Former NYC Top Cop is now an Inmate

Source: Associated Press via VALHALLA, N.Y. — Former New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik is now just another number in the county jail. Westchester County jail spokesman Justin Pruyne (PRYN') says Kerik was given the number 210717 and a single-bed cell when he arrived Tuesday afternoon. Kerik is awaiting a federal trial on corruption charges. He had his $500,000 bail revoked for disclosing secret pretrial information. Pruyne says the 54-year-old Kerik was processed like any other incoming inmate but was segregated from the general jail population because of his background in law enforcement. Kerik won glowing reviews for his leadership after the Sept. 11 attacks. He was later nominated to lead the federal Homeland Security agency but withdrew as co
