We've had a week to absorb the tragedy at Fort Hood and it seems to me that some clear patterns are emerging.
We know for example that Major Hasan's bizarre behavior was observed by many of the soldiers with whom he worked, but they were reticent to report him for fear of looking like they were discriminating against a Muslim.
Despite this, immediately after the shooting, we see Janet Napolitano in Abu Dhabi warning against an "anti Muslim" backlash.
We also learn that Hasan's anti American screeds were overlooked by US intelligence officials at the same time that Secretary Napolitano was sounding the warning to be on the look out for...American Conservatives.
Does Napolitano understand that the war on terror is real? Perhaps this is what happens when someone who has absolutely no training or qualifications receives a high level Cabinet position based on the fact that she endorsed the President early.
