I was with Congressman Peter King and Brigitte Gabrielle on Hannity Radio Show today (April 25, 2012 at 5:00 PM) and he brought up the same logic of Nidal Hassan being coached to do what he did. I wish this material was published earlier.
By the way, I challenged the reliability of intelligence of CIA and Mossad about Iran, and asserted that Ahmadinejad did not say he would wipe Israel off the map, he was talking about Occupation. I made it clear that AhmediNejad is a foul mouth and I do not like his agitative rhetoric.
I also challenged them about CAIR and ISNA being indicted as co-conspirators, what was said has no value. ISNA's name has been cleared. That's when Brigitte subtly suggested that the support for brotherhood (she was about to include me as a supporter but backed off) I would have bitten her on that.
Sean Hannity has been right about Brotherhood though, that they are taking over Egypt and have passed two ridiculous resolutions - Israel is their enemy and I forgot the other point.

Military to review course teaching "U.S. at war with Islam"http://news.yahoo.com/military-review-course-teaching-u-war-islam-
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The top military officer ordered a review of training material after a course for officers was found to espouse the view that the United States is at war with Islam, the Pentagon said on Wednesday.
General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, sent a letter on Tuesday to leaders of the Army and other services, along with regional commanders and officials heading the National Guard, ordering a review of relevant training and education material across the military.
"This review will ensure our professional education programs exhibit the cultural sensitivity, respect for religion and intellectual balance that we should expect in our academic institutions," Dempsey said in the letter, an excerpt from which were read to Reuters.
The review, which was first reported by Wired.com, was prompted by a complaint by a soldier who had recently completed an elective course entitled "Perspectives on Islam and Islamite Radicalism" at the Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk, Virginia.
One example of objectionable material, presented in a power point slide for students, was an assertion "that the United States is at war with Islam and we ought to ought to just recognize that we are war with Islam," Captain John Kirby, a Pentagon spokesman, told reporters.
Kirby said Defense Secretary Leon Panetta also felt "deep concern" over the discovery, which follows a string of incidents that, more than 10 years after the Afghan war began, have exposed a persisting gap between people in the conservative Muslim nation and the Western soldiers fighting Islamist militants there.
The incidents, embarrassing for the government of President Barack Obama as he seeks to mend U.S. ties with the Muslim world and shore up his campaign in Afghanistan, include bloody riots caused by U.S. soldiers' burning of copies of the Koran and photos showing U.S. soldiers posing with corpses of Afghans.Dempsey also ordered an inquiry into how the material, which Kirby described as "objectionable" and "inflammatory," got into the course at Norfolk.
While hundreds of officers would have taken the course since it began in 2004, it's unclear how long the material identified as objectionable had been part of the curriculum. The 30-day inquiry should establish that.
The eight-week course, which was aimed at officers, has been suspended as the inquiry moves ahead.
The instructor has not been suspended from teaching duties, Kirby said. The soldier who made the complaint was not been identified.
Pentagon halts class teaching anti-Islam materialBy Associated Press – 10 hrs ago |
Defense Department spokesman Capt. John Kirby said Wednesday that among problems with the course taught at Norfolk, Va., was a presentation that asserted the United States is at war with Islam. Kirby noted that officials across two American administrations have stressed that the U.S. is at war with terrorists who have a distorted view of the religion.
Kirby declined to detail what he said were other problems with the course, called "Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism."
Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has ordered all service branches to review their training to ensure other courses don't use anti-Islamic material.
