Sen. Joe Lieberman Says there are "Strong Warning Signs" Fort Hood Attack was a "Terrorist Act"; Intends to Open Congressional Investigation - Video
Here is video of Sen. Joe Lieberman on Fox News Sunday yesterday where he talked about Fort Hood Shooter Nidal Malik Hasan and possible links to Radical Islam.
Lieberman made the following statement about Hasan:
"If the reports were are receiving of various statements he made, acts he took, are valid, he had turned to Islamist extremism. And therefore, if that is true, the murder of these 13 people was a terrorist act, and in fact it was the most destructive terrorist act committed on American soil since 9/11. But I want to say very quickly we don't know enough to say now, but there are very, very strong warning signs here that Dr. Hasan had become an Islamist extremist, and therefore that this was a terrorist act."Lieberman did a great job laying out the case that Hasan committed a terrorist act. Though the investigation is ongoing and not final, it certainly looks like that is the case.
Lieberman said he also intends to open a Congressional investigation into the attack to see if the U.S. Army missed warning signs about Hasan and his Radical Islamic beliefs and statements.
