Oh, Yes, Didn’t Barack Hussein…

…promise us “transparency” when he was campaigning, in the same breath as he blasted the Bush Administration for a lack thereof?


The Obama administration said Tuesday that it will provide more information to Congress about the Fort Hood shootings but continued to defy a subpoena request for witness statements and other documents.

After days of negotiations, the Defense and Justice departments informed a Senate committee that they will not comply with congressional subpoenas to share investigative records related to the Nov. 5 shootings at Fort Hood, Tex., which killed 13 people. The agencies said divulging the material could jeopardize their prosecution of Army Maj. Nidal M. Hasan, the alleged gunman.

The Pentagon said, however, that it will give the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs access to Hasan’s personnel file, as well as part of an Army report that scrutinized why superiors did not intervene in Hasan’s career as an Army psychiatrist, despite signs of his religious radicalization and shortcomings as a soldier.

Leslie Phillips, a committee spokeswoman, said the refusal to hand over all the material was “an affront” to Congress’s duty “to conduct independent oversight of the executive branch.”

Nidal M. Hasan’s conviction, given the circumstances, is a “slam dunk”, even a deaf, dumb, blind, mentally impaired prosecutor could win this one hands down.

The real problem is Barack Hussein’s partiality to Islamofascists, as evidenced by the difficulty he seems to have even labelling them for what they are; Our president simply hates the prospect of turning over any evidence that might imply that Hasan’s being a Muslim might have had anything to do with his murder spree, even though it had everything to do with it.

Basically, the affair could best be defined as “applied Islam”.

The entire article is here.

Imagine if George W. Bush had declined to provide information to a congressional investigation in this manner. The Democrat and media dog-and-pony show would have been the performance of the century.
