For the idiot who wrote this review, the people at the CIA outpost didn't know who was attacking them. They did know the February 17th Martyr's Brigade had been contracted by the State Department to defend them, but had no way of knowing if they were among the various people who were out there in the dark. They couldn't very well shout out because it would give away their position if it turned out to be the enemy with an RPG or mortar. So, there was a lot of shooting in the dark required to rescue the survivors from the mission, and to hold off the attackers until they could break out. Those "meathead mercenaries" were warriors fighting and dying for the United States, and this will be my last post in this left-wing piece of garbage.
Packrat, by "correct that" I meant that the "more thorough screening of prison volunteers" mentioned in the article would include asking co-workers, supervisors, and friends if they are constantly talking about the merits of jihad, as Hasan did with co-worker Col. Lee.
Fincher, who is apparently automatically presumed to be an idiot by all of the progressives here, also included a mandate for the prison workers affected to make available all of their social media accounts to the FBI. Had they done that with the mail-order bride terrorist Tasheen Malik, her discussions about her jihadist desires to kill Americans would have been found. Had they even checked the home address she provided, they would have found out it was bogus. For your edification, I know Fincher's bill doesn't cover the 90 day marriage visas.
The summary of the bill is here:
Fort Hood Terrorist Maj. Nidal Hasan had a "Secret" security clearance, but it did not include interviews with his co-workers, supervisors, or Hasan himself. Perhaps this bill will correct that.
Trumbo was running around Hollywood with a hammer and sickle supporting Stalin, who killed millions of his own people. In fact, Stalin invoked so much carnage there is no consensus on how many innocent civilians he had murdered and starved to death. Estimates run from 11 million all the way up to 50 million, and the lower number puts him pretty much in a dead heat with Hitler. That's some pretty exclusive company.
Enjoy the movie.
Will Hillary win the Dem nomination? The suspense is absolutely killing me.
Americans are simply tired of having a left-wing loser like Obama negotiating deals that give away the farm and bring nothing back to us except a dawning realization that we are being sold out. After the "Great Betrayal of 2014", Republican voters hate McConnell and Boehner with the heat of 10,000 Suns (thanks Ann) and want them to be defeated as much as Hillary and Bernie. Trump is an excellent negotiator who will secure the border and track illegals who have overstayed their visas, and that may be enough to boost him all the way to POTUS. Obama and the Republican Congress have set such a low bar, Trump may just hop over it and land right in the White House.
My question is - and has been - why didn't the cops run his plates and see what they could find out about the person in the car? I know from personal experience that a good-sized police department in Texas would not pull over anyone unless they could run wants and warrants on his car first. (I was the consultant called in to fix the wants and warrants problem.) That is because they wanted to know if it was a person with no record, a dangerous criminal, if the car was stolen, etc. before they approached the vehicle. Had they done that they could have determined he had no criminal record as well as a pistol permit, and maybe not banged on his window while he was minding his own business and sleeping in his car in a bad part of town.
In any case, he was found dead with a cigar in his hand, not a gun, and the last time I read about this the gun was on the seat next to him, not in his lap. Oh, and the cop who didn't request that Askew's gun to be checked to see if it had been fired, even after hearing the inconsistent statements from the cops, should not be investigating anything. The cops' explanation has never passed the smell test, and still doesn't. Maybe some day someone will write a book or make a movie about the death of Steven Askew and get his death the attention it deserves.
