Reaping the Whirlwind

Jerry Pournelle writes from a lifetime of experience and makes a lot of sense.  Why wasn't the Fort Hood shooter brought up on charges of treason the moment it was discovered that he sided with our enemies?

Political correctness was the cause of the Fort Hood Massacre, and we ought not forget that. The fact that someone could go through -- at government expense -- an undergraduate education with ROTC, then medical school at a US military institution, and remain a traitor to the United States is a significant warning.  Hassan had been through ROTC and a US armed forces medical school as a commissioned officer. Why was his failure of loyalty to the armed forces not detected earlier? But of course he was a Muslim, and it would not be politically correct to wash someone out of an armed forces medical school for lack of loyalty to the armed forces of these United States.

We sow the wind. We have reaped one whirlwind.

Amen to that.
