Obama Urges Congress to Delay on Fort Hood...huh?? BHO asks Congress for DELAY??
Even though Nidal Malik Hasan, self-proclaimed "Soldier of Allah," rampages Fort Hood in full Islamic regalia and shouts "Allahu Akbar!" and is "'Calm,' Methodical During Massacre," presumably after months of messages with his mullah in Pakistan, President Obama urged Congress to delay its investigation because:
We must compile every piece of information that was known about the gunman, and we must learn what was done with that information. Once we have those facts, we must act upon them.
There's hope for a better sense of urgency from Lieberman and McKeon in Congress, however:
In the Senate, Sen. Joe Lieberman, a Connecticut independent, said his Homeland Security Committee was opening an investigation.
Rep. Howard McKeon, R-Calif., said he wanted to go ahead with an investigation from the House Armed Services Committee, where he is the top Republican. He said he wanted an investigation that wouldn't compromise law enforcement or military investigations that were continuing on separate tracks.
Obama said he was not opposed to hearings — eventually. But he strongly pressed lawmakers to hold off until the probes now under way are completed.
Hey, here's an idea... How about Congress treat this as "urgently" as the Health Care bill for a month or two? Certainly an Islamic terror attack on U.S. soil must be of comparable importance?
