Clueless NY Times on Ft. Hood Killer: "The Gunmen & His Motive Remain an Enigma"

Nidal Malik Hasan shot and killed 13 US soldiers on November 10, 2009- screaming “Allahu Akbar” while he shot them dead.
Yet, the elitists in the state-run media still can’t figure out why he slaughtered 13 US soldiers in cold blood.

Hasan maintained contact with radical mosque leader from Virginia, Anwar al Awlaki, who now lives in Yemen and runs a web site that promotes jihad around the world against the U.S. (ABC News)

The New York Times reported:

A parade of prosecution witnesses — many of them still struggling with their wounds — provided a gripping, almost cinematic account of the attack in which 13 people died and dozens were wounded.

Yet the gunman and his motive remain an enigma. And there were few clues about what sort of defense Major Hasan, a 40-year-old Army psychiatrist, would mount in the face of such overwhelming evidence.

The witnesses spoke at an Article 32 hearing, a military proceeding in which an investigating officer, in this case Col. James L. Pohl, listens to evidence and decides whether to recommend a court-martial, what charges should be filed and what the penalty should be.

The hearing is not a trial, and the defense often uses it discover the strength of prosecution’s evidence, while the prosecution sometimes uses it to encourage the defense to enter a guilty plea.

Really, are these people this clueless?
