Multicultural approach jeopardizes security, columnist argues

Catholic World News - February 16, 2011

In a Wall Street Journal editorial column, Dorothy Rabinowitz examines the case of Major Nidal Malik Hasan, who stands accused of killing 12 people and wounding 32 others in a shooting spree at Fort Hood.

The record shows that Hasan was promoted through the military “despite blatant evidence of his unfitness,” Rabinowitz says, because superior officers were anxious to ensure that Muslims received favorable treatment in the military. Even today, she notes, three different reports by the military on the Fort Hood massacre fail to mention the Islamic zealotry of the accused shooter.
