Ft. Hood Jihadist Has One Less Phone Call To Make

Word is coming out today that an imam the Ft. Hood jihadist had ties to received an early Christmas present courtesy of a Predator drone.

The radical Muslim imam linked to the rampage at Fort Hood reportedly is believed to have been killed in a Yemen airstrike that may have also taken out the region's top Al Qaeda leader and 30 other militants.

The raid in Yemen's east targeted an Al Qaeda leadership meeting held to organize terror attacks. U.S. officials believe radical cleric Anwar Awlaki was "probably" killed in the strike, a source confirmed to FOX News.

While so many in our media and indeed inside our own Defense Department and Department of Justice continue to twist themselves into pretzels trying to find some social ill to explain away Nidal Hassan's mass murder, they apparently continue to execute missions which strike at the root of the problem, and it ain't getting PTSD by osmosis like so many of Hassan's defenders would have you believe.

Al-Awlaki said he lauded the Fort Hood attack because it was aimed at troops, whom he accused of fighting an unjust war against Islam.

"It is a military target inside America and there is no dispute over that," he said. "Also, these military personnel are not ordinary; they were trained and ready to fight and kill oppressed Muslims and commit crimes in Afghanistan."

Despite his approval, Al-Awlaki said his role was only limited to Hasan's thought process, adding that he'd "be honored if I had a bigger role."

On the other hand, if you are a friend of Hassan's you might want to make sure that caller ID feature is working on your phone. I'm not sure I would answer a call from this guy since it just might be a possibility that the GPS coordinates are then uploaded to a circling UAV.

Early this week Hassan's lawyer was whining about the fact that his client wasn't being allowed to pray over the phone in Arabic if there was no translator in the room. I guess that problem is solved now, huh?
