  2. The guest spoke as if he Hassan were already convicted, e.g. "…doing what he did…". This is the kind of sloppiness that made mainstream news worth discounting. I wouldn't even presume guilt after a conviction.

  3. What I found interesting was that according to mainstream news Hasan shot the policewoman that shot him, in the legs. He did this from point blank range. If his intent was to kill American’s why did he do this? Could it be that his targets were specific people who had harassed him in the past?

  4. Saying all followers of Islam want to kill non-Muslim’s like Pipes believes is the same as saying all Israeli’s want to kill gentiles because Meir Kahane or Yaackov Teitel said so.

  5. The y'know count turned me off.
