Lieberman claimed in a Fox News interview:
...there were "strong warning signs" that the alleged gunman, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, was an "Islamist extremist."Sen. Lieberman is becoming Connecticut's version of Rudolf Giuiliani: "All terror, all the time!". He certainly doesn't want anyone to forget for a minute that all Muslims are potential terrorists, and any infraction by someone who prays to Allah will be immediately classified as a "terrorist act".
"If that is true, the murder of these 13 people was a terrorist act and, in fact, it was the most destructive terrorist act to be committed on American soil since 9/11," Lieberman told "Fox News Sunday." (emphasis mine)
It's no coincidence that Lieberman waited until the morning after the late night passage of the historic landmark health care reform bill to announce his "investigation", even though he had several days to do so. It's an investigation which, if we know Joe, will go absolutely nowhere once the headlines die down.
Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey urged the public not to rush to conclusions about Maj. Hasan's motives with an investigation underway. Sen. Lieberman seems to be operating under no such compunctions.
It's wonderful to know the chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs is working so hard to protect us from make-believe terrorists, and yet we can't get swine flu shots until people start dropping dead in the streets.
