Senators Lieberman and Collins took the action after being stonewalled for months by the Defense and Justice Departments about the Fort Hood terrorist massacre. At this point, we now have to wonder why Holder and other Obama gangsters dont want to cooperate on a matter involving a terrorist attack on one of our Army bases. On our own soil. Really–what exactly is the problem Urkel?
Two U.S. lawmakers subpoenaed the Obama administration on Monday for information sought in a congressional probe of last year’s shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, that left 13 soldiers dead and an Army psychiatrist charged with murder.
Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman, an independent, and Susan Collins, the panel’s top Republican, took the action after the departments of Justice and Defense failed to provide the materials by Monday’s deadline.
The two senators have been trying for months to obtain documents and be provided access to witnesses that they say are critical to their investigation of the shooting spree at Fort Hood in November that ended with 13 soldiers killed and dozens wounded…In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, who heads the Justice Department, and Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Lieberman and Collins wrote: “It is impossible for us to avoid reaching the conclusion that the departments simply do not want to cooperate with our investigation.”
“It is with great disappointment and reluctance that we have directed service of subpoenas to you which demand disclosure of the requested information by Monday, April 26, 2010,” they added.
The Justice and Defense departments sent a letter last week to Lieberman and Collins saying that turning over the information could compromise the case against Hasan.
You see, this is what happens when you try terrorists as civilians. Whether it’s true or not, Obama’s gangsters can refuse to cooperate with even the Senate Homeland Security Committee in the name of “compromising the case.” Again, what exactly would be compromised by providing, even confidentially, information to senators regarding a terrorist attack on our soil?
