Army Major Played Role in Presidential Transition

Incredibly, it appears that Maj. Malik Nidal Hasan, the alleged shooter in the massacre that resulted in at least 12 dead and 31 wounded at Fort Hood today, served on the Homeland Security Policy Institute’s presidential transition task force between April 2008 and January 2009 when Barack Obama was inaugurated as the nation’s 44th president.

Major Hasan’s name appears on the page numbered 29 (page 32 of the pdf) of the document, Thinking Anew — Security Priorities for the Next Administration.

Founded in 2003, The George Washington University Homeland Security Policy Institute (HSPI) is, according to the “About Us” page on its web site, a nonpartisan “think and do” tank whose mission is to build bridges between theory and practice to advance homeland security through an interdisciplinary approach.

What does it mean?  Perhaps, nothing.

  2. That makes this interesting. I am going to reference this on my site. By the way, sorry I have been away. I miss reading your great wisdom.

  3. I made no claim that he was close to Obama. Just reported the facts — and did not know Corsi had even covered it. How could he have made it up? Nadal’s name is printed in the document?. ???

  4. Thanks Bob,

    I cross posted this on my Blog.

    I hate to see what is happening to our Republic.

  5. Why should a terrorist in our military be any less tolerable than the Marxist currently in our White House? I am reminded of a quote in Hussein’s book, ‘The Audacity of Hope’: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

  6. This is completely false — that document, if you read it, says that he advised a non-profit think tank on what the next administration should do, not that he was in any way associated with President Obama’s transition. The fact that the non-profit think-tank meet from April 2008 should have clued you in that this was not the official transition.
