An idiot on Redstate says what?

Another interesting development concerning Hasan is that during the Presidential transition Obama’s transition team created a special task force to review Homeland security procedures and Nidal Hassan was PART OF THIS TASK FORCE, which gave him access to security procedures which could have given him the ability to move as he did at a secure military instillation. Follow this link to Appendix C "Task Force Participants." Continue until reaching page 29 and the eighth name in the left column is listed as, "Nidal Hasan Uniformed Services University School of Medicine."

Yep, that really WOULD be interesting so I followed the link, to..............a publication of George Washington University's think tank.

The idiot Redstate guy just assumed anyone on something called a "transition task force" had to be working for Obama, even as it states clearly its an institute of GWU.

Well, still, it would be something if Hassan had infiltrated a George Washington University and all, so I looked up Appendix C and scrolling down, found a "Nidal Hasan" of the Uniformed Services University School of "s", and nothing about being a Major in the Army.

Hmmmmm.  Looks like really deep cover, or Redstate is full of shit.  

Here's a paper by a Dr. Nidal Hasan on some sort of ow-ow in the foot bone....also, obvioulsy not the shooter.

Turns out, the shooter, Nidal Hassan, wasn't with the school of medicine but was a student in the masters for public health program.

So it looks like the Fort Hood shooter hadn't managed to infiltrate a private university's think tank.  That's how closely he's tied to Obama.

Last link:  all the Google hits on search Fort Hood Obama transition team".

Impressive, isn't it?  It's not that they CAN'T read, it's just that they don't let it get in the way of a good story.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
