Re: Peter Brimelow`s Blog: Did Affirmative Action Stop Army Stopping Fort Hood Shooter

Brimelow cited former military officer Duncan Hengest who wrote that the Equal Opportunity Office no doubt interfered with a former military officer weeding out Hasan.

If anything, Hengest understates the problem of getting rid of diverse troublemakers.

Let`s face it. No one wanted to admit that this Muslim officer might be a terrorist or a radical. Everyone was too politically correct to state out loud what they instinctively knew. Now 13 innocent people are dead and more than 30 injured.

Consider this: signs at train and subway stations warn passengers that: "if you see something, say something."

Apparently good advice for civilians, but not for senior military bureaucrats.
