CID SPOKESMAN TRIES TO MINIMIZE THREAT
FROM "FORT JACKSON FIVE" - POISONED FOOD
PLOT VERY REAL IN WAKE OF FORT HOOD
TERRORIST ATTACK - "WE HAVE NO CREDIBLE
INFORMATION TO SUPPORT THE ALLEGATIONS,
AT THIS POINT," SAYS CHRIS GREY - IS THIS
"COVER-UP" OR JUST WAY OF SAYING: "NOTHING
TO SEE HERE, MOVE RIGHT ALONG" - THEN WHY
THREE MUSLIM TRANSLATORS UNDER ARREST?
In the wake of the Fort Hood shootings, where fanatical MAJ Nidal "Allahu Akbar" Hasan killed 13 Americans in cold blood, there should be no "cover-up" of a possible plot by Muslim translators at Fort Jackson, S.C. to poison the base food supply.
Just the fact there are mixed signals coming from various sources on the sprawling Army training installation indicates the PAO don't have their act together to present a clear and coherent picture of what's really going on there.
CID spokesperson Chris Grey tried to blow off the incident, first reported by Erick Stakelbeck of CBN News.
"There is no credible information to support the allegations, at this point," he cleverly said. Hey, Chris. Why, then, was mainstream media's CBS NEWS told that three of five suspected Muslim translators, allegedly overheard in a mess-hall discussing "poisoning food," have been arrested?
The old PAO standby line - "we cannot comment on an on-going investigation," gets a bit thin when you realize it's been nearly two months since this investigation was launched, and that you folks out there would not even know about it, if Stakelbeck didn't have such good sources.
LATEST "UP-TO-THE-MINUTE" DETAILS
Here's what MilitaryCorruption.com knows, to this minute: An unidentified soldier overheard five foreign nationals in the Lima 09 Program (Muslim translators training on U.S. soil) talking about "food" and "poison" in the same breath. No, they weren't complaining about the quality of the chow in the mess hall.
To their credit, the authorities at Fort Jackson didn't waste any time before starting a probe. It would have been better for them, however, if word of the investigation had not leaked out. But since it has, they'd be well advised to be as open and candid as possible, under the circumstances.
With Togo West and Vern Clark, (one more like them, and you would have the "Three Stooges)," supposedly studying how the Army dropped the ball and even promoted troubled under-performer MAJ Hasan - can you spell "political correctness" boys and girls? - let's hope more capable people are looking into what may be a very real threat that, like the Christmas underpants bomber over Detroit, was thankfully foiled before any harm could be done.
Also, please let us be spared the spectacle of groveling Gen. Casey, whining on the TV talk shows about how much "worse" it is for the Army to have it's "diversity" damaged, than a dozen soldiers and one civilian gunned down at Fort Hood by an American-Palestinian madman.
