Officials: U.S. Aware of Hasan Efforts to Contact al Qaeda

Click here for ABC News Report. With U.S. anti-terrorist agencies now being asked to preserve all documents related to Army Major Nidal Hasan, I'm now concerned what happened was not just a matter of failing to connect the dots but rather an ill-fated attempt to obtain additional intelligence. My views on the trail of events and information leading to the shootings have not changed since last week and are only made more frightful by this morning's disclosures that Hasan had identified ties to al Qaeda. If the appropriate officials had given a small percentage of the effort we will now see committed to this investigation it is possible the shootings would have never taken place. For more insight, listen to this interview with a co-worker of Hasan although you will have to put up with the interruptions of an unskilled reporter.
