This Week In Conservative Media: When it Comes to Fort Hood, Why Ask Why?
Eve Conant Newsweek
“I could not believe I was hearing that question all weekend: why did he do it? Why did a Muslim, in touch with Al Qaeda, open fire on U.S. military personnel?” asks Rush Limbaugh. “I tell you something, folks, political correctness and a lot of other things are gonna lead to our downfall.” Limbaugh also discusses how the House Judiciary Committee just voted to strip the Patriot Act of a provision allowing the government to spy on people who are not linked to known terrorist groups, i.e. “lone wolves.”

The question of whether alleged gunman Nidal Malik Hasan is a lone-wolf madman or a terrorist with links to Al Qaeda is driving many commentators up the wall. Last week we reported that many in the conservative media were asking that same question. But that soul searching moment seems to have passed.

Laura Ingraham links to a WSJ op-ed by Dorothy Rabinowitz that takes on Dr. Phil and lays out the basic question: why on earth is anyone trying to figure out something so clear? “What is hard to ignore, now, is the growing derangement on all matters involving terrorism and Muslim sensitivities. Its chief symptoms: a palpitating fear of discomfiting facts and a willingness to discard those facts and embrace the richest possible variety of ludicrous theories as to the motives behind an act of Islamic terrorism." more
