People who label Nidal Malik Hasan a "terrorist," like Joe Lieberman has done, literally don't understand the meaning of the word. How can they protect us from it if they don't even know what it is?
Why is there a common tendency, post 9/11, to judge Islam and the majority of mainstream Muslims by the acts of an individual or an aberrant minority of extremists?
The military is a world of its own, and its psychologists and psychiatrists are doing nothing less than attempting to upend an entrenched culture.

Hidden behind the gates of military bases across the U.S., troops facing AWOL and desertion charges regularly find themselves in the hands of a military that metes out informal, open-ended punishments.
The relationship between the price of oil and the slaughter that took place at Fort Hood is hardly as far-fetched as it would appear.
We have millions of sick Americans who need health insurance. But there are even more of us who live in danger of being shot by an easy-to-obtain weapon.
In yet another twist of irony, in a case already replete with it, Maj. Nidal Hasan, 39, the alleged gunman in the November 5th Fort Hood shootings, se...
The pack of shrill rightist bloggers and talk radio chatterers jumped all over the shooting and gleefully fanned anti-Muslim passions. It didn't take much to get the anti-Muslim hate juices flowing.
