    That Muslim cleric who was at the mosque about 3 miles from where I live says he was a confidante to Hasan, the Ft. Hood terrorist.

    It is both unbelievable and inexcusable to me that the FBI would know about this correspondence and do nothing. How can a U.S. Army officer (and psychiatrist on top of that) be able to communicate in an admiring way with someone like Aulaqi -- whom the U.S. Government knew was tied to 9-11 -- and not be investigated?

    I agree. The FBI appears to have dropped the ball on this.

    The FBI and most of the intel community just dropped a few notches off my respect totem again. If these are the kinds and caliber of intelligence agents and agencies we have, I shudder to think what else could have slipped by their runny noses ?

    On the other hand, I was just reading some article about some of our Army guys who murdered four Iraqis they caught firing at them back in 2007 in some canal in Iraq and they pointed to frustrations at the long laundry list of requirements they have to meet in order to detain suspects whom they have apprehended in combat situations.
    Could these intelligence folk be facing the same frustrating requirements to even launch an investigation on suspected terrorists within the Armed Services ?
