A trait of the best military commanders is that they put the welfare of their soldiers above their own. The best captains go down with the ship. The Fort Hood jihadist massacre of 2009 afforded so many of those commanders to do the right thing, to put the victims of Nidal Malik Hasan and their families ahead of their own.

Col. Nathan Banks, a top United States Army Colonel is the latest example of a superior officer who is more interested in self-preservation than he is in putting his soldiers first. Hasan’s victims have been the recipients of gross injustice. The truth about the attack has not been told. the victims have not received purple hearts. Yet, instead of fighting for these victims, Banks has essentially spat on them.

Via NBC Dallas / Fort Worth:

A top United States Army Colonel has angered some of the victims of the 2009 Fort Hood attack after he turned to social media criticizing an NBC 5 Investigates’ Freedom of Information Act request asking for documents related to the shooting.

In February, Col. Nathan Banks wrote on his personal Facebook page: “Let’s move on America, I did.”

Perhaps the only thing more despicable than that comment – considering its source – was that of Gen. George Casey just three days after the attack:

As we reported on, the real reason for this inexplicable behavior from top U.S. officials, to include the White House and Congress, has to do with what the Clinton and Bush administrations knew about the most notorious mosque in the U.S. Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, VA was home to Anwar al-Awlaki and was visited by Hasan.

The terrorists inside that mosque – which remains open to this day – warranted the mosque being shut down no later than in the days after the 9/11 attacks. Had it been shut down, 14 people at Fort Hood might be alive today and 32 people would not have been injured.
