Chris Matthews asks if it's a Crime to call al-Qaeda?
There's a problem in the media and the White House in admitting that this was a terrorist attack and holding the man accountable.
Chris Matthews on Hardball:
"How do we know when someone like Hasan is going to make his move and do we know he's an Islamist until he's made his move? He makes a phone call or whatever, according to Reuters right now. Apparently he tried to contact al Qaeda. Is that the point at which you say, ‘This guy is dangerous?' That's not a crime to call up al-Qaeda, is it? Is it? I mean, where do you stop the guy?"1
Matthews goes on to discuss the problem of judging the "shooter" and reserving criticism of the terrorist. First the "thrill up his leg" Matthews revealed his bias towards Obama, now here we see an avoidance of identifying terrorists as an ENEMY.
I was shocked by Matthews' philosophical struggle.
How can you win a war when you can't identify the enemy? How is it NOT a red flag when you call up the ENEMY?
This is the first terrorist attack on our land in 8 years and some still don't understand who we're fighting.
