I submit to you that Malik Hasan did NOT act alone. There WAS a conspiracy.
It was Malik AND........the voices in his head.
Why was he even allowed a place where the inner turmoil he faced on a daily basis was allowed to be nurtured?
How can anyone expect a Muslim man in the midst of a war to keep any sort of brain wave normalcy?
I do mostly blame Hasan, don't get me wrong, but for the sake of all this is NOT politically correct, the signs were there.
So the voice of the of the "Radical Islamist" wins out over the voice of the "Good American".
The Islamist voice tells him to praise allah, kill American soldiers, and claim his rightly earned virgins in Islam Heaven.
By the way, do you know what the difference between a Radical Muslim and a Radical Christian is?
A Radical Muslim features Malik Hasan killing American soldiers in the name of his god.
A Radical Christian features Jim Elliot preaching the Gospel in Ecuador, and quite literally losing his head, and perhaps in an even more "Radical" part of the story, the wives of the slain missionaries coming to Eduador and FORGIVING the Waodini people.
