Investigate Muslim Chaplains

Reader comment on item: [Hasan Akbar and] Murder in the 101st Airborne

Submitted by John Rudolph (United States), Apr 1, 2003 at 14:39

Which Muslim chaplain was Asan Akbar consulting with? Was the chaplain a Wahabbi Muslim? What Imam does this chaplain answer to? What were the distinct motives behind his attacks on his officers?

Where was Asan Akbar's NCO and officers in charge? Why didn't they see the blatantly obvious alarm signals that were going off in their company with this guy? I spent 20 years of active duty with the US Navy. If I ever spotted ominous warning signals that someone was angry or was about to lash out, I would do everything I could to place this individual under custody, to protect himself and my crew.

I find it difficult to swallow that something like this has happened. I have started off my own personal investigation regarding the DoD's Muslim chaplains. So far, I have had to contact the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) office in Washington DC to get the following answers, because I was told that to ask the below question was a violation of the Privacy Act:

1. How many of these Muslim chaplains in DoD are of the Wahabi branch?

The Wahabi branch are the most extremist of Muslims.

I already know that all three of the US Navy's chaplains are Wahabbi Muslims.

We need to root out any probable causes as to what brought on this attack. I am suspect that a muslim chaplain may know more about this than we are led to believe. I am calling for a screening investigation of every Muslim chaplain in our armed forces.
