Fort Hood shooter Major Nidal Hasan called himself 'soldier of Allah' on business cards (photo)



This photograph taken on Friday, Nov. 6, 2009 in Killeen, Texas, shows a business card that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan gave to his neighbor a day before going on a shooting spree at the Fort Hood Army Base. (AP Photo/Jack Plunkett)

The man accused in the Fort Hood shooting spree that killed 13 people kept business cards with the initials, SoA, the abbreviation for "Soldier of Allah,"ABC News reports.

SoA is commonly used on jihadist Web sites as the acronym for Soldier of Allah, according to the network.

Hasan obtained the cards over the Internet, according to ABC.   The cards use the word "health" twice but misspell it "heatlh" in the first reference.    The cards make no mention of Hasan's military affiliation.

Fort Hood suspect Nidal Malik Hasan was 'always alone,' neighbor says (video)

John Thomas, the neighbor of the Fort Hoot shooting suspect Nidal Malik Hasan, told CNN that Hasan was "always alone" but had a visitor the day before the shooting.   He had kept to himself for the most part but had recently given away some of his possessions to neighbors, Thomas said.

Bill Herridge, Board of Contributors: Outside, I hear gunshots

Click-2-Listen

Buzz up!
BILL HERRIDGE Board of Contributors
Tuesday, November 10, 2009

I was at Fort Hood on Thursday afternoon and got caught up in events surrounding the tragic shooting deaths there. I was in the Howze Theater on post to play my bagpipes at a processional to usher in those soldiers receiving college diplomas from area colleges and universities.

They have a big ceremony each November for all such soldiers meeting their degree requirements. I play for them every year.

This time, however, was to be different.

At about 1:30, I was sitting on the front row of the theater on the far left side. A side entrance to the theater was located directly to my left about 3 feet away. I heard three or four muffled “pops” and thought it sounded a little odd.

Suddenly, the door near me flew open, and a man fell into the theater with a gunshot wound in his back. I started for the man to see what was wrong, but two NCOs jumped up and grabbed the man, laying him on the edge of the stage. One of them shouted, “Are there any medical personnel in the building?”

Two graduates ran to the stage, threw off their caps and gowns and began treating the man as best they could. His wound was not life-threatening, they said.

As the man was being loaded onto a stretcher, five or six heavily armed civilian security personnel entered the back of the auditorium with rifles and pistols pointing upward. One of them shouted that everyone should take a seat immediately — and, believe me, that happened very quickly.

They asked that all senior NCOs in the building proceed to one of the eight entry doors in the building. Again, this was done immediately. As one of the security guys ascertained that the wounded man being removed from the stage would survive, they walked across the front of the stage and slowly opened a door on the opposite side of the auditorium — one which opened out onto a parking lot that separated the Howze Theater from the Soldiers Dome where the rest of the shootings occurred.

We could hear rapid gunfire coming across the One of the security guys again shouted a request for any doctors and nurses in attendance, and about 15 people immediately moved to the door where the security guys were standing.

I heard one of the security folks tell the assembled medical personnel that there were many wounded people in the adjacent building and that they were needed to help out. The medical people were told to follow the security personnel, keep low and move quickly without stopping. There was no hesitation on their part. They just moved out to do their jobs. There were three officers in the building, and, to their credit, they just got out of the way and let the NCOs handle the situation.

I was extremely proud of the professionalism that everyone displayed. The only people complaining were civilians who were there for the graduation ceremony. Soldiers continually moved among them to calm them down.

One interesting thing about all this: About an hour after the shooting died down, the loudspeakers all over the base started playing the old Cavalry bugle call dubbed “Recall.” I have never heard that on an active-duty base before, but apparently the soldiers knew what it meant — that they were to drop what they were doing and return to their units.

At about 7 p.m., they brought several cases of MRE — combat meals — and started handing them out. I figured we would be there all night when that happened. However, about 30 minutes later, we were allowed to depart in small numbers. I had to pass through four checkpoints before I reached Farm-to-Market Road 116. Even after driving off-post, I had to negotiate two Texas Department of Public Safety roadblocks before reaching highway speeds for the return home.

That shooter could have followed the wounded man into the theater and claimed many more victims.

I know full well that the Good Lord was looking after me.

Bill Herridge, an insurance agent based in Gatesville, is a member of the Trib Board of Contributors. He tells us that he has been tapped to play his bagpipes at a memorial service at 1 p.m. today at Fort Hood. President Barck Obama will be among the speakers. There also will be a 21-gun salute.

Blogging Imam Who Knew Fort Hood Attacker and 9/11 Hijacker Goes Silent

By ROBERT MACKEY

Anwar al-Awlaki at the Dar Al Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Va. in October, 2001.Linda Spillers for The New York Times Anwar al-Awlaki at the Dar Al Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Va. in October, 2001.

Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical, American-born cleric who knew at least one of the 9/11 hijackers and exchanged e-mail messages last year with the Army psychiatrist charged in the Fort Hood shootings, abruptly stopped blogging this week, just days after writing that he approved of the psychiatrist’s attack on American soldiers.

Experts say Mr. Awlaki, born in New Mexico and educated in both Yemen and the United States, is an influential voice in favor of radical Islamist ideas on the Web.

According to Jarret Brachman, a former West Point terrorism expert who monitors jihadist Web sites, Mr. Awlaki, whose preaching has been distributed via YouTube as well as his blog, “is one of the most popular English-language jihadist shaikhs out on the circuit today.” In a post explaining Mr. Awlaki’s status online, Mr. Brachman writes that he and another popular Jamaican cleric are sheiks “for a new generation. Pomp and circumstance matter less today than they did a decade ago. They are accessible. Even fun. Al-Awlaki has a great sense of humor and is really a populist in his approach. His fans love him, adore him.”

Before his blog disappeared from the Web this week, Mr. Awlaki wrote that he approved of the shootings carried out by Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the Army psychiatrist. In a widely quoted post published Monday under the headline “Nidal Hassan Did the Right Thing,” he said:

    Nidal Hassan is a hero. He is a man of conscience who could not bear living the contradiction of being a Muslim and serving in an army that is fighting against his own people. This is a contradiction that many Muslims brush aside and just pretend that it doesn’t exist.

On Tuesday, The Associated Press reported:

    The Homeland Security Department’s intelligence division became concerned about Awlaki late last year when he published a new group of violent lectures targeting U.S. audiences, according to a Jan. 22, 2009 intelligence note. On Dec. 23, 2008, Awlaki, on his Web site, encouraged Muslims across the world to kill U.S. troops in Iraq.

Before he left the United States to live and work in Yemen in 2002, Mr. Awlaki was well known to the authorities and to news outlets. He was questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation days after the 9/11 attacks because of what the 9/11 Commission later called the “remarkable coincidence” that he had met at least one of the hijackers at two different mosques, in San Diego and Virginia, in the years before the terrorist strike. (In the 9/11 Commission report, his name is spelled “Aulaqi.”)

Mr. Awlaki was still preaching at the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Va., immediately after the 9/11 attacks, and it soon emerged that three of the hijackers had attended services there. PBS and The Washington Post interviewed him in the fall of 2001. On Thursday, Margaret Warner of PBS reported that while Mr. Awlaki was working at the mosque in Falls Church, he had also presided at the funeral for Major Hasan’s mother. Ms. Warner’s video report, embedded below, includes images of Mr. Awlaki discussing the 9/11 attacks during a sermon in Virginia just after the event. In that 2001 sermon, Mr. Awlaki said that the killing of American civilians in those attacks was not justified, but, he added, neither was the killing of any Afghan civilians.

Although he was believed to be in Yemen until this week, Mr. Awlaki’s whereabouts are unknown, and it has not always been easy for American authorities to depend on Yemeni cooperation in terrorism investigations. In its report, the 9/11 Commission noted that Yemeni authorities had been unable to put its investigators in touch with Mr. Awlaki for an interview. Among the questions the commission had wanted to ask Mr. Awlaki was whether he knew just one or all three of the hijackers who had attended services at the mosque in Falls Church.

Mr. Awlaki has noted that his life in Yemen has not always been easy. In this 2007 interview with Moazzam Begg, a former Guantánamo detainee, Mr. Awlaki said that he had just been released from a Yemeni prison after spending one and a half years in custody:

Fort Hood suspect may be permanently paralyzed

Fri Nov 13, 2009 3:44pm EST
 
By Chris Baltimore

HOUSTON, Nov 13 (Reuters) - The U.S. Army psychiatrist charged with 13 counts of murder in the Fort Hood Army base shootings may be permanently paralyzed from the waist down due to the gunshots used to subdue him, his lawyer said on Friday.

John Galligan, a retired Army colonel appointed to represent Major Nidal Malik Hasan during an upcoming military trial, also said Hasan, 39, could face more charges.

The U.S. Army has charged Hasan, a U.S.-born Muslim who is the son of immigrant parents, with premeditated murder in the deaths of 13 people on Nov. 5 at the huge military base in Texas. He could face the death penalty if convicted.

Police officers shot Hasan four times during the incident to bring him down, and the wounds appear to have left him permanently paralyzed from the waist down, Galligan said.

Hasan regained consciousness this week but remains in intensive care at a military hospital in Texas.

"It appears that there is a paralysis that might be permanent," Galligan told Reuters by telephone.

The Army has not ruled out bringing future charges against Hasan. "Quite possibly, additional charges could be filed," Galligan said.

Galligan also said he has grave doubts that Hasan could receive an impartial trial if it is held at Fort Hood.

The shooting prompted President Barack Obama to order a review of how U.S. intelligence agencies handled information they may have gathered about Hasan amid questions about whether authorities may have missed warning signs.

Intelligence agencies learned that Hasan, who counseled wounded soldiers, had contact with an Islamist sympathetic to al Qaeda, and officials said the information had been passed to law enforcement authorities.

Hoekstra: Fort Hood suspect being checked for ties to Pakistan

BY NIRAJ WARIKOO
FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER


Intelligence officials are examining whether the Fort Hood shooter wired money to Pakistan before the Nov. 5 shootings, U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra, R-Holland, told the Free Press today.

Hoekstra, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said that Maj. Nidal Hasan, the suspect in the deadly shootings at a military base in Texas last week, is being examined for financial transactions to people in Pakistan.

“A pretty credible source said to me … you need to look at his connections to Pakistan, money transfers to Pakistan,” Hoekstra said today. “I believe there is substance to it.”

The links to Pakistan are of concern because the country has become a center for Islamic militant groups, he said.

Hoekstra said earlier this week that Hasan had exchanged 10 to 20 e-mails with Anwar Al-Awlaki, a cleric in the Middle East who once worked at mosques in the U.S., including one in Virginia that Hasan had attended.

Hoekstra’s comments about Hasan’s possible ties to Pakistan were first reported Thursday by the Dallas Morning News.

Hoekstra has been calling this week for officials to fully investigate the shootings and whether they are tied to Islamic extremism.

"The horrific shootings at Fort Hood are a tragic reminder of the potential deadly consequences of the threat posed by homegrown jihadism and the failure of the government to adequately respond to it," Hoekstra said in a separate statement earlier this week.

Hoekstra also expressed concern about the lack of information he said that he’s getting from officials as the ranking Republican on intelligence in the House.

When “they refused to brief me, it set off some red flags,” Hoekstra said.

Fort Hood shooting suspect sent money to Pakistan, Texas congressman says

12:00 AM CST on Friday, November 13, 2009

By DAVE MICHAELS and LEE HANCOCK / The Dallas Morning News
Dave Michaels reported from Washington; Lee Hancock reported from Fort Hood. / The Dallas Morning News
Brooks Egerton contributed to this report from Dallas.

An Austin congressman said Thursday that he has confirmed that Fort Hood massacre suspect Nidal Malik Hasan wired money to Pakistan, which Muslim extremist groups use as a base to raise funds and carry out terrorist attacks.

Rep. Michael McCaul's statement followed a Dallas Morning News report that authorities were looking into whether such wire transfers had occurred. It also came as Army officials announced charges of premeditated murder against Hasan, who could face the death penalty.

"I have confirmed through independent sources that there were communications and wire transfers made to Pakistan," McCaul said in a prepared statement provided by his spokesman. "This Pakistan connection just raises more red flags about this case and demonstrates why it's important for Congress to exercise its oversight authority."

The spokesman, Mike Rosen, said McCaul wouldn't name his sources. The congressman's statement didn't address who Hasan's contacts in Pakistan were, when he communicated with them or how much money he sent.

McCaul is the top Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee's intelligence subcommittee. He typically is briefed on classified material but had yet to be formally briefed on the Fort Hood killings.

He "has been actively seeking information from as many credible sources as possible," Rosen said. "It has been more difficult than usual to obtain information from our intelligence community."

Asked about McCaul's comments, an FBI spokesman in Washington said he couldn't comment on any aspect of the investigation.

Evan Kohlmann, a terrorism expert who has consulted with the FBI and the Defense Department, noted that Hasan is a U.S. citizen of Palestinian descent, with no known family ties to Pakistan. Kohlmann said that leaves only two reasons for the psychiatrist to wire money to the South Asian country: to support charity or to support jihad.

Westerners who want to give to a legitimate Pakistani charity typically would do so by putting money in a U.S. or British bank account, he added.

"It raises huge alarm bells," Kohlmann said of Hasan's reported wire transfers.

Pakistan borders Afghanistan, the country to which Hasan was supposed to deploy soon. Pakistan is battling a radical Islamic insurgency and is widely believed to be the hiding place of Osama bin Laden.

Following the money

Dennis Lormel, a former FBI special agent who directed the agency's efforts to identify sources of terrorist financing, said investigators would take note of the large amount of disposable income Hasan apparently had. He made more than $90,000 a year, had no wife or dependents, and paid about $300 a month for a tiny apartment.

"It seems like there is a lifestyle that was beneath his means," said Lormel, now a managing director for IPSA International, a consultant to banks on combating money laundering. "Where is the money going?"

Lormel said Hasan could have used several channels to wire money abroad, including remittance services that cater to immigrant workers who send money to their native countries. If that were the case, there may be documentation of the transaction, Lormel and others said.

Banks and other money transmitters must tell the Treasury Department if an individual sends more than $10,000 outside the country.

Kohlmann said only a "breakdown" could explain the FBI's failure to dig deeper when it discovered late last year that Hasan was communicating by e-mail with Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical cleric in Yemen.

The U.S.-born imam exhorted Western Muslims in January to practice jihad – often translated as "holy war" – by donating money.

Al-Awlaki worked several years ago at a northern Virginia mosque that Hasan and some of the 9/11 hijackers attended. Federal authorities have investigated the cleric's ties to terrorists since the 1990s but never brought charges against him.

"Everybody at the FBI knows who Anwar al-Awlaki is," Kohlmann said. "In the world of jihadis, this guy is Bruce Springsteen."

After the Fort Hood massacre, the cleric said on his blog that Hasan was "a hero."

Intelligence review

FBI officials have said they didn't pursue Hasan last year because his e-mails were consistent with research he was doing. At the time, he lived in the Washington area while serving at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and doing a fellowship at Uniformed Services University of the Armed Services.

The White House said Thursday that President Barack Obama has ordered a review of all intelligence related to Hasan and whether it was properly shared and acted upon.

The review will be overseen by John Brennan, assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism. Initial results are due Nov. 30.

Members of Congress, particularly Michigan Rep. Peter Hoekstra, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, have called for a full examination of what agencies knew about Hasan's contacts with al-Awlaki and other radicals.

Hoekstra told The News on Wednesday that he heard from sources "outside of the [intelligence] community" that Hasan might have contacts in Pakistan.

Lone gunman

Officials believe Hasan was the only gunman "involved in the actual shootings" on Nov. 5, said Christopher Grey, a spokesman for the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command.

He told reporters at Fort Hood on Thursday that the major faces military charges in the deaths of a dozen soldiers and one civilian. No decision has been made about whether to charge Hasan with a 14th count of murder in the death of the unborn child of a pregnant shooting victim.

Hasan had no appointments, orders or other legitimate reasons to be at the Soldier Readiness Processing Center on the afternoon of the attacks, officials said. A multi-agency task force continues to follow leads and clues about possible motives for the attack.

John Galligan, a retired Army colonel who is Hasan's civilian attorney, said his client was served with formal charges without notice to him or Hasan's appointed military counsel.

"I have a client presumed to be innocent, in an ICU, in a hospital bed, being served with papers that I've not yet seen," Galligan said. "If it appears that I'm a little upset, I am."

He conceded that military regulations don't require that a defense lawyer be present. But the military justice system should show that it plans to treat Hasan fairly, he argued.

Mental issues

Galligan hinted at a defense focusing on Hasan's mental responsibility. And "already, there are problems," he said.

Questions about mental capacity in Fort Hood criminal proceedings are usually resolved by having a soldier evaluated at Darnall Army Medical Center – the hospital where Hasan had worked as a psychiatrist since July. When a case requires "the gold standard," Galligan said, defendants are evaluated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center near Washington – where Hasan was stationed before coming to Fort Hood.

"We're going to have to figure out where he can get a fair evaluation," Galligan said.

Some Hasan acquaintances have said he was upset about being deployed overseas to a battle zone where the U.S. was fighting Muslims. Some have described him as hinting at extremist views on the job. Some have said he seemed paranoid or schizoid, according to National Public Radio.

"We're looking at every reason for this shooting," Grey said. "We're aggressively following every possible lead."

A dozen of the wounded remained at local hospitals in stable condition, another Army official said Thursday. One was still in intensive care. Grey said investigators have not been able to talk to some victims because of the severity of their injuries.

Grey declined to answer questions, saying authorities do not want to jeopardize the investigation.

The processing center is still sealed off as a crime scene, Grey said. That's where Hasan drew two pistols, one equipped with a laser sight, and began gunning down soldiers, authorities say.

Investigators have examined more than 100 cars in nearby parking lots for bullet holes and are still combing the offices, cubicles and open areas of the processing center for evidence. Four adjacent buildings and surrounding land are also being searched for clues, and authorities have "no estimated timeline for when the crime scene will be released," Grey said.

Hasan, who was wounded when confronted by two civilian police officers who work at Fort Hood, is being treated at a military hospital in San Antonio. He has refused to speak to investigators.

Hundreds attend visitation for Plymouth soldier




Community gathers to mourn loss of Staff Sergeant Justin DeCrow from Plymouth.

Reporter: Stephanie Stang


Hundreds are paying their respects to a Plymouth soldier killed in Ft. Hood last week.

The visitation for 32-year-old Staff Sergeant Justin DeCrow is Friday night and the funeral service is Saturday at 1:00p.m.

DeCrow was among the 13 killed in the massacre last Thursday. The Plymouth native has deep roots in the city plus his wife is from there also.

Friday afternoon a large crowd poured into the Plymouth Wesleyan Church.

DeCrow graduated from Plymouth High School and was involved in several sports including wrestling and football. He also married his high school sweetheart Marikay.

Teachers remember him as a good student who enjoyed anything mechanical and technical.

“To lose somebody that is protecting your country to a situation like this was tough,” says a former teacher Bob Read.

DeCrow was getting ready to be deployed Iraq. He was recently relocated to Ft. Hood in September.

Besides his wife he leaves behind a 13 year old daughter.

The procession starts at about 11 a.m. Saturday morning. People are encouraged to come and wave their flags in support of the family.

There will be a formal military escort starting at the Johnson-Danielson Funeral Home on Michigan Street. It will go through downtown Plymouth to the Plymouth Wesleyan Church. A burial will follow at the New Oakhill Cemetery.

A Web of Lone Wolves

Fort Hood shows us that Internet jihad is not a myth.

 BY EVAN KOHLMANN | NOVEMBER 13, 2009 

Upon learning of the reported "missed" link between the alleged culprit responsible for the massacre at Ft. Hood -- Maj. Malik Nidal Hasan -- and Anwar al Awlaki, my heart sank for a multitude of reasons. Al Awlaki is an infamous character in the halls of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and he has been for several years at least. The cleric's recurring presence again in the Ft. Hood case seems to be powerful and disturbing evidence of how fringe extremists -- who otherwise might remain in obscurity with no real means of living out their private jihadi fantasies -- are quite literally being equipped for battle by so-called "theological" advisors known only to them through the Internet. In short, it is a reminder of how real online terrorism networks have become.

In mid-2008, I was invited by the FBI to look at the voluminous evidence they had gathered against a group of defendants who were caught plotting to attack various military installations on the East Coast, including Fort Dix in New Jersey. At first, I was a skeptic. Most of the men under scrutiny were Westernized Albanian Muslims who spoke little to no Arabic, were into hip-hop music, and were working as pizza delivery boys and taxi drivers. They didn't have any obvious connection to al Qaeda or Osama bin Laden, they had never visited a real terrorist training camp, and they cut a pretty kooky appearance.  They certainly didn't seem to fit the classical terrorist stereotype.

But to my surprise, this motley crew of would-be homegrown killers turned out to be much more sophisticated than I had initially given them credit for.  Aside from having an unsettling interest in acquiring assault rifles, these young men had separately downloaded hundreds of megabytes of hardcore terror propaganda videos from the web, including the wills of Sept. 11 hijackers and the July 7 London suicide bombers, and instructional materials on how to build improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and carry out sniper attacks -- and they knew all about radical Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and his online lecture series "Constants on the Path of Jihad."

In "Constants," al Awlaki argues, "Jihad does not depend on any particular land.  It is global. ... No borders or barriers stop it." He continues, "If a particular people or nation is classified as ... ‘the people of war' in the Shariah, that classification applies to them all over the earth.  Islam cannot be customized to suit the conditions where you are, for instance Europe."

Al-Awlaki's fanatical "lone wolf" approach to jihad -- broadcast virally over the Internet -- was adopted with terrific gusto by, among others, the Fort Dix plotters, who were caught by the FBI in early 2007 discussing the extent of their devotion to al-Awlaki. In a conversation taped by the FBI in 2007, one said, "[T]his brother locked up in Yemen, Anwar al Awlaki the Imam in Washington D.C., they kicked him out of the U.S. and now they locked him up in Yemen. He was talking about jihad, the truth, no holds barred, straight how it is!  ... In his own country they locked him up for speaking like this." 

In another conversation recorded by the FBI in February 2007, convicted Fort Dix conspirator Eljvir Duka repeatedly instructed other "recruits" to download copies of Anwar al-Awlaki's lectures. "It's called the Constants of Jihad, the Constants of Jihad and this, ever since I heard this lecture brother I want everyone to hear about it," he said. "You know why, because he gives it to you raw and uncut ... this is the truth I don't give a damn what everybody says this is Islam, this is the truth right here. ... So this lecture is very necessary for people today, if you're concerned. ... [It is] verbal, audio, you have to download it."

Perhaps this is the most frustrating aspect of transnational vendors of hate and mayhem like al Awlaki. The Internet has inadvertently become a powerful tool in their hands, offering easy access to an interactive virtual universe where they can mobilize vulnerable, unstable people around the world and incite them to carry out acts of violence. And because the message is spread to individuals scattered across the globe, the violence comes in seemingly random bursts from unexpected sources - like pizza delivery boys, or even an Army psychologist. Even Web-savvy Holocaust Museum shooter James Von Brunn, for example, turned to the parallel virtual world of neo-Nazi radicals for instruction and support.

With such a generalized threat, it will be a continuing challenge for Western governments and societies to draw the fine line between what is protected under the freedom of speech and what is criminalized as direct incitement to murder.  In order to help address those critical determinations and intercept potential threats, the FBI and other government agencies must redouble their efforts at sharing intelligence in a timely and effective manner. They must train and empower agents and analysts, who are on the frontlines of the battle against terrorism, by training them about the players and issues peculiar to the blight of international terrorism. Surely, if homegrown extremists can train themselves to be al Qaeda aficionados using only their own home computers, then it is within the capabilities of a determined U.S. government to thwart them.

Plymouth community remembers fallen soldier

Family, friends, community mourn fallen Soldier

Courtesy Photo On Nov. 9, Sgt. 1st Class Michael Hutchings, Sgt. 1st Class Christopher Riley and Sgt. 1st Class Donald Chazelle, all from 551st Signal Battalion, went to their favorite Chinese restaurant for lunch. It’s something they’ve done countless times before, but this time, there was a special meaning behind it. This time, they went in memory of Staff Sgt. Justin DeCrow, their friend who used to always join them there.

DeCrow, 32, of Evans, Ga., was one of the 13 killed in the shooting incident at Fort Hood Nov. 5. A satellite communications operatormaintainer, he had been assigned to a Signal unit at Fort Hood since September, and was to be deployed to Iraq soon. Before that, DeCrow was stationed on Fort Gordon, first to attend the training course for his job and later as an instructor in the satellite communications division for the 447th Signal Battalion and the 551st Signal Battalion, as well as a platoon sergeant with the 235th Signal Co.

“He was a caring instructor, a great noncommissioned officer and a strong motivator,” Riley said. “I don’t think he received the recognition he deserved for all that he did. I hope I can be half the NCO he was.”

Since DeCrow’s death, many of his fellow Soldiers and former students have echoed Riley’s sentiments. A FaceBook memorial page was set up in his honor so that those who knew him can post photographs or reminisce about their time together. The message on the top of the page reads, “For all of those that lived and worked with Justin, those of us fortunate enough to call him a friend.”

DeCrow’s wife, Marikay recently posted her own message to the page.

“Thank you so much for sharing all of your wonderful memories. It is such a comfort to know that he touched so many lives in so many ways,” she said. “[Our daughter] Kylah and I appreciate all of the kindness and support that we’ve received. He truly was one in a million, and we love him so much.”

Like Marikay, Hutchings, Riley and Chazelle prefer to remember DeCrow as a friend, not just a Soldier or co-worker.

He was the funniest man I ever met,” Hutchings said. “You couldn’t be mad around him. He would walk into a room and everyone just lit up.”

Chazelle summed up his friends sentiments. “He’s someone I’m never going to forget,” he said.

“Staff Sgt. Decrow was a true family man; he was dedicated to his wife, daughter and the community around him. Despite the long hours that he worked as an Instructor/squad leader he dedicated much of his free time to the Golden Harvest Food Bank and the local 4-H club. Staff Sgt. Decrow always gave his all, he loved the military and Soldiering, he lived by setting the example and could always be counted on professionally and personally,” said Sgt. 1st Class Shino Tomoji, a colleague and friend from Fort Gordon.

DeCrow graduated from Plymouth High School, Plymouth, Indiana, in 1996, and married his high school sweetheart, Marikay that spring. He joined the Army a few months later.

“He always wanted to be a Soldier,” Marikay said.

Over the course of his career, DeCrow touched many lives both professionally and personally, as attested both on his FaceBook memorial and through the recollections of his friends and family.

“His infectious charm and wit always put others at ease,” Marikay said. “He will be greatly missed.”

Risch Urges Additional Murder Charge in Fort Hood Slayings

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Jim Risch is preparing a letter to the U.S. Army prosecutor urging him to add an additional count of murder against Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the alleged killer of 13 people at Fort Hood last week.  On Thursday military officials announced 13 charges of premeditated murder against Hasan, but left the door open for more charges.

“Both federal law and the Uniform Code of Military Justice allow for a murder charge when a person causes the death of an unborn child.  One of the victims, Private Francheska Velez, was pregnant when she was killed and as a result, her child died as well,” said Risch.  “It is important for this child to have justice and for recognition that this family suffered two deaths in this senseless rampage.”

Risch joins fellow U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison in calling for the additional charge of murder against Hasan, who will be tried in military court.

“As a former prosecuting attorney, I understand the importance of treating all lives, including those of the unborn, with dignity and respect.  Prosecuting Major Hasan for taking the life of an unborn child is consistent not only with the demands of the UCMJ, but also consistent with the demands for justice,” Risch concluded.

Hutchison: charge Hasan for murdering the fetus, too

   3:52 PM Thu, Nov 12, 2009
Todd J. Gillman   

Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison tells The Dallas Morning News that the Fort Hood shooter should face 14 murder charges, not just 13. The Army announced that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan will face one specification of murder for each casualty.

But as Hutchison points out, one of the soldiers killed in the rampage a week ago was pregnant: Private Francheska Velez, who had already served in Korea and in Iraq, was expecting her first child.

"Private Velez's family lost two family members at the hands of Nidal Hasan," Hutchison said through an aide. "As a supporter of Laci and Conner's Law, the Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2004, I believe the military should, as they have been authorized to do, charge Nidal Hasan with fourteen counts of murder."‬

The politics of this: Hutchison supports abortion rights, though she always votes to restrict access and funding whenever an issue comes up. This tough-on-crime/sanctity-of-life stance is sure to resonate with social conservatives in the governor's race.

Pro-Life Group Asks Military to Charge Hasan for Killing Unborn Baby at Fort Hood

Fort Hood, TX (LifeNews.com) -- A pro-life legal group has asked the U.S. military to charge Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan with the unlawful killing of an unborn child in the shooting that recently took place at the Fort Hood military base. The initial 13 murder charges do not include one for the death of an unborn child, the fourteenth victim.

Hasan is suspected of killing 12 soldiers and one civilian in last Thursday's shooting and he was shot and wounded by two police officers at the base.

Yesterday, military officials charged him in those deaths and U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command spokesman Chris Grey said additional charges may be filed -- which the Alliance Defense Fund hopes is the case.

ADF issued a letter Thursday to the Office of Staff Judge Advocate at Fort Hood, Texas, urging it to enforce the law by bringing the fourteenth charge. It wants Hasan to be held responsible for killing both Francheska Velez and her unborn child.

"All murder victims--born and pre-born--deserve equal justice," ADF senior legal counsel Steven Aden told LifeNews.com on Thursday. "Women who volunteer to protect our country deserve to know that the government will enforce the laws that protect their children."

The ADF letter urges enforcement of Article 119a of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, which makes it a crime for anyone "to cause the death...of a child, who is in utero at the time the conduct takes place" regardless of whether the killer intended to kill the child.

If the killer intended to kill the child, he can be prosecuted for murder under Article 118.

"According to press accounts, Private Velez had returned to America from Iraq a week before the shooting," the letter states.

"Private Velez was three months pregnant and was excited about being a new mother. She was scheduled to begin maternity leave next month. She was filling out paperwork relating to her pregnancy when she and her child were killed," the ADF letter reads.

"It would cause a severe and negative impact on morale if Army women were made to believe that the Army valued their children less than they did adult victims of crime. We respectfully request that you enforce UCMJ Article 119a against the suspect," the letter says.

The Uniform Code of Military Justice was modified when President George W. Bush signed the Unborn Victims of Violence Act in 2004.

As LifeNews.com opinion columnist Maria Vitale wrote Wednesday, the Unborn Victims of Violence Act, also known as Laci and Conner’s law, is named for the pregnant woman and unborn baby who were murdered in California by Scott Peterson, the baby’s father.

"It would seem that the law applies in this case for three reasons: the act of violence was committed on federal property…the shooting was allegedly done by a member of the military…and the violence could be classified as an act of terrorism," she explains.

Also, under Texas law that took effect in September 2003, the protections of the entire criminal code extend to “an unborn child at every stage of gestation from fertilization until birth.”

"The Obama Administration has a moral obligation to press for prosecution of Hasan under the Unborn Victims of Violence Act. If such a legal path is ignored, it will demonstrate to the world that the President is caving in to a pro-abortion lobby who will not recognize the legal rights of any child in the womb—even a child whose mother desperately longs to give birth," Vitale concludes.

EDITORIAL: Justice for the unborn terror victim

By THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan was charged with 13 counts of murder for the Fort Hood massacre, but 14 persons were killed. Army Pvt. Francheska Velez, a 21-year-old Chicago native, was six weeks pregnant when she was gunned down. Her unborn child is the 14th victim, but the death so far has been ignored by our government.

Weeks before the Nov. 5 shooting at Fort Hood, Velez had been driving fuel tankers in Iraq when she learned she was pregnant. Because of the good news, she rotated home early to take an assignment outside of the war zone. She had come to the room where the terrorist struck to fill out paperwork related to her pregnancy. Had she not been pregnant, she still would have been half a world away serving in Iraq at the time of the shootings.

Maj. Hasan can and should be held responsible for killing Velez's unborn child. The Unborn Victims of Violence Act was passed in 2004 to cover these specific circumstances. The law provides that a person, like Maj. Hasan, charged with murder under section 918 of Title 10 of the U.S. Code who caused the death of "a child, who is in utero at the time the conduct takes place, is guilty of a separate offense under this section and shall, upon conviction, be punished by such punishment, other than death, as a court-martial may direct."

The law is also known as "Laci and Conner's Law," after Laci Peterson, who was pregnant with a son to be named Conner when she was murdered by Scott Peterson in 2002.

The law covers unborn children "at any stage of development," so the fact that Velez's unborn child was six weeks old brings the statute in force. The law does not require that the shooter, in this case Maj. Hasan, "had knowledge or should have had knowledge that the victim of the underlying offense was pregnant" or that he "intended to cause the death of, or bodily injury to, the unborn child." Had he intentionally killed the unborn child, he would be tried under a separate murder charge. Recognition of the additional victim is not a capital offense, though Maj. Hasan currently faces 13 capital murder charges.

Investigators at Fort Hood are considering whether the Unborn Victims of Violence Act applies to this case. No life lost during the terrorist attack on Fort Hood should be forgotten. We urge the Army to pursue justice for Velez's unborn child, who brought her to that place on that fateful day.

Fort Hood shooter violated numerous Islamic principles


Editor,

Treachery is abhorrent in any culture or religion. One has to be blinded by hate to find anything decent about the heinous crime and treacherous act of Maj. Nidal Hasan’s mass shooting at Fort Hood. Hasan violated many constant Islamic principles.


He violated the principle that contracts are binding and should be respected and fulfilled by Muslims, for they are the foundation of civilization. “O you who believe, fulfill your contracts.” (Quran 5.1). His reward for those who honored him and were good to him with the ultimate evil of stabbing them in the back is against Islamic teachings. “Is there any reward for good other than good?” (Quran 55.60). He violated the principle of not committing acts that cause harm to Islam and Muslims.

“No direct or indirect act of harm is permissible.” His lunatic rampage actually harmed Islam, Muslims and his own family. If he meant to weaken Americans, it actually helped strengthen their resolve and united them against whatever Hasan is standing for. He betrayed his medical oath to protect and safeguard human life, a noble Islamic principle. “And whoever safeguards a life, it is as if he saved all humanity.” (Quran 5.32). Muslims are once again tormented by the shameful act of a fellow Muslim, who helped to injure the reputation of Muslims and distorted the image of Islam.

All this raises the question of what is wrong with Muslims that an educated man like Hasan resorts to a mindless act of savagery by shooting unarmed colleagues of his who trusted his care as a medical doctor. It is a complex problem but there is one major cause that torments Muslims and reminds them of their impotence almost daily. That issue is the Palestinian problem. As long as the Palestinians are humiliated and deprived of their basic human rights, the average Muslim will feel the throbbing pain of shame and the frustration of helplessness and irrelevance. For young men, this kind of mental anguish drives them to dark areas of the human mind where some might turn to demons. If the world does not help resolve this human tragedy for which both Palestinians and Israelis are paying the price, there will always be weak people like Nidal Hasan who will be vulnerable to the preaching of hate mongers like the terrorists who use Islam as the currency for their demented ideologies or Jewish extremists who preach violence against Palestinians, or Christian hate mongers who preach nuking the Muslims. If we care for the Palestinians and Israelis, we need to step in and enforce international laws on all, because the rest of the world is becoming a victim in this tragedy.
