pamela gellerYes, of course. According to the dhimmedia muppets at CNN, there is no jihad. So if there is no jihad, then Fort Hood never happened. And those 14 vicitms of jihad were not slaughtered in cold blood. CNN as good an example of the low-state of news organizations in this country.

Anyone who mentions Fort Hood is an islamophobe.

Just for the record, the Fort Hood jihad was the worst attack on a military base on the US mainland in history.

During CNN’s live coverage of Monday’s shooting at the Washington Navy Yard, anchor Carol Costello asked when the last time was that a gunman wreaked “havoc at a U.S. military facility.” In 2009, a jihadist killed 13 in a mass-shooting at Fort Hood in Texas.

I used to work in Washington, live in Washington. This seems so unusual to me that a gunman could create this kind of havoc at a U.S. military facility,” Costello stated. “Have you ever heard of it happening before, Brian?” she asked correspondent Brian Todd, reporting live from the vicinity of the shooting. [Video below the break. Audio here.]

 

 

Costello added that “this is so unusual, because this is such a
heavily-secured military facility. I’ve worked in Washington for many
years, I’ve never heard of such a thing happening.” She may have been
referring to shootings at military bases near Washington, D.C., though
her question simply referred to a “U.S. military facility.”

Below is a transcript of the exchange, which aired on CNN Newsroom on September 16 at 10:01 a.m. EDT:

CAROL COSTELLO: I used to work in Washington, live in Washington. This
seems so unusual to me that a gunman could create this kind of havoc at a
U.S. military facility.

BRIAN TODD: Yes.

COSTELLO: Have you ever heard of it happening before, Brian?

TODD: I’m sorry, Carol. I missed that question. Could you repeat it please?

COSTELLO: I was just saying that this is so unusual, because this is
such a heavily-secured military facility. I’ve worked in Washington for
many years, I’ve never heard of such a thing happening.

TODD: Well, we haven’t either in this area, Carol. This is the first
time we’ve seen something like this, at least in many, many years. Now
you remember the Fort Hood shooting in 2009, where that was a member of
the service who was convicted eventually of doing that shooting.
