Report: "Hasan did not seek to conceal his extremist views"

The NEFA foundation has a powerpoint presentation up on the Fort Hood massacre. One key point is that while Nidal Hasan was not a member of an organized terrorist cell:

Hasanís communications with Anwar al‐Awlaki likely indicate his sympathy for Al‐Qaida...

he subscribed to Salafi‐Jihadi ideology...

he may have been exposed to radical ideology consistently throughout his life, either passively at mosques, or actively online.....

Hasan did not seek to conceal his extremist views

The report also explains Hasan's friendship with Duane Reasoner who justified Hasan's mass murder to reporters. Reasoner used the online name "oooklepookle".

In addition to pushing lectures by Anwar al-Awlaki, the American born al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula member who Hasan communicated with via email, "ooklepookle" also was a follower of New York online jihadis Yousef al-Khattab's "Revolution Muslim" website.

Oddly, Khattab frantically removed all evidence that he and "ooklepookle" were friends (archive here) shortly after the MSM picked up on his praising of Nidal Hasan for murdering his fellow soldiers. A few weeks after we showed that he and "ooklepookle" were friends and that Hasan himself may have been one of his followers, Khattab announced his retirement from "Revolution Muslim" and now claims to be living abroad.
