The U.S. military's just-released report into the Fort Hood shootings spends 86 pages detailing various slipups by Army officers but not once mentions Major Nidal Hasan by name or even discusses whether the killings may have had anything to do with the suspect's view of his Muslim faith. And as Congress opens two days of hearings on Wednesday into the Pentagon probe of the Nov. 5 attack that left 13 dead, lawmakers want explanations for that omission.

 

The possibility that the US Government employed a terrorist isn't even considered. Because if you admit that a radical Islamic terrorist was inside the belly of the beast well after 9/11, you admit that government is incapable of protecting us. So the myth has to be kept up - this was a fluke, he was mentally unstable, if only we had passed legislation X we could have stopped him, etc. Or just brush it under the rug and forget about it.
