No matter how hard Republicans want to pretend that Barack Obama was president from 2000-2008, that doesn't make it true

And while the right is having vapors about how President Barack Hussein Obama, the secret Muslim terrorist who is both a Nazi and a part of the Great Jewish Conspiracy at the same time "allowed" a "possible terrorist" to remain in the military, the fact of the matter is that the Bush Administration's policy to let anyone with a pulse serve because they needed enough people for their Middle East meatgrinder allowed Nidal Hassan to serve:
Two years ago, a top psychiatrist at Walter Reed Army Medical Center was so concerned about what he saw as Nidal Hasan's incompetence and reckless behavior that he put those concerns in writing. NPR has obtained a copy of the memo, the first evaluation that has surfaced from Hasan's file.

Officials at Walter Reed sent that memo to Fort Hood this year when Hasan was transferred there.

Nevertheless, commanders still assigned Hasan — accused of killing 13 people in a mass shooting at Fort Hood on Nov. 5 — to work with some of the Army's most troubled and vulnerable soldiers.

On May 17, 2007, Hasan's supervisor at Walter Reed sent the memo to the Walter Reed credentials committee. It reads, "Memorandum for: Credentials Committee. Subject: CPT Nidal Hasan." More than a page long, the document warns that: "The Faculty has serious concerns about CPT Hasan's professionalism and work ethic. ... He demonstrates a pattern of poor judgment and a lack of professionalism." It is signed by the chief of psychiatric residents at Walter Reed, Maj. Scott Moran.

When shown the memo, two leading psychiatrists said it was so damning, it might have sunk Hasan's career if he had applied for a job outside the Army.

Perhaps they hoped Hasan would snap in time for the 2008 election, reminding Americans just how much we are in danger from terr'ists all the time and how only Republicans, who presided over the worst attack ever on American soil, can keep them safe by allowing such attacks to happen.

What no one has pointed out is that a second investigation of this incidence should be made.

Ht Hood is only 150 miles from Dallas. Has someone been shipping the Catch 22 people to Ft Hood, because the exPresident lives so close? Did Dick Cheney order the major shipped to Ft Hood because Bush would not pardon Libby?

"Perhaps they hoped Hasan would snap in time for the 2008 election" Part Two of that memo on Condi's desk that described terrorists planning to fly airplanes into American buildings?
