Get it through your skulls if you haven't understood this already: governments thrive on staged terror. It's their daily bread. Even if this man were a deranged jihadist, or a lunatic psychiatrist probably on psychotropic drugs like most mass murderers who just snapped one day, and that day just happened to be the 5th of November, the government doesn't let a good crisis go to waste. Whether they perpetrated it or not, they will use it as an excuse to stamp out more of the few liberties you actually have left. But I digress. What are they hiding, and why? Oh, don't worry, you filthy criminals. The truth will emerge. And when it does, and if it shows you're culpable, the slaves will fall on that grenade to save you, and call it a tin foil hat conspiracy theory, and label us all kooks. You get away with murder. Again.

The ranking Republican on the House intelligence committee on Tuesday night accused the White House of withholding information on the Fort Hood attack.
Rep. Pete Hoekstra (Mich.) said administration officials delayed briefing members of Congress about the alleged gunman, raising "red flags" about what the White House was hiding."When they withhold information, you always start asking questions," Hoekstra told Fox News. "That's what raises red flags. What do they know that they don't want us to know?"
Hoekstra linked President Barack Obama's handling of Fort Hood to a chain of other GOP criticisms of the president, including the administration's treatment of detainees and an investigation into possible CIA abuse.
"It is a political correctness that is making it unable for us to identify the real threat of homegrown terrorism," he alleged.
Hoekstra warned that "we have similar Hasans" in the country. The Michigan Republican has called for his committee to investigate the incident. Chairman Silvestre Reyes (D-Texas) has so far declined, preferring to wait for the conclusion of the joint FBI-Army investigation.Obama has ordered a review of all intelligence on Hasan.
