Fort Hood jihadist may have sent money to Pakistan

The Dallas Morning News (via Hot Air) reports that Malik Nidal Hasan may have wired money to Pakistan:
WASHINGTON – Authorities have been examining whether Fort Hood massacre suspect Nidal Malik Hasan wired money to Pakistan in recent months, an action that one senior lawmaker said would raise serious questions about Hasan's possible connections to militant Islamic groups.

Rep. Pete Hoekstra, R-Mich., said sources "outside of the [intelligence] community" learned about Hasan's possible connections to the Asian country, which faces a massive Islamist insurgency and is widely believed to be Osama bin Laden's hiding place.

Hoekstra, the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, would not identify the sources. But he said "they are trying to follow up on it because they recognize that if there are communications – phone or money transfers with somebody in Pakistan – it just raises a whole other level of questions."

Much remains unknown about the 39-year-old Hasan, born in Virginia to Palestinian immigrants. He lived alone near the Army base in Killeen, Texas, and would sometimes use a neighbor's computer even though he had his own.

"With what I know about Hasan to date ... I would expect we will learn more about him that will make us concerned," Hoekstra said, "rather than information that says, 'Oh man, we got that all wrong and this had nothing to do with terrorism.'"
The problem is that that's just what the MSM have been trying to avoid. Even now, quite a few leftists out there are trying to dodge the harder questions and downplay the more serious parts involved. Including why he would use a neighbor's computer instead of his own console.
Hasan’s finances have been a mystery since last week, when the Army major and psychiatrist allegedly shot and killed 13 colleagues at the sprawling Central Texas military base. Hasan earned more than $90,000 a year and had no dependents, yet lived in an aging one-bedroom apartment that rented for about $300 a month.

“You can bet there is an ongoing, extensive investigation into every single financial transaction he made,” said Matt Orwig, a former U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Texas who has no direct knowledge of the Hasan case. “Federal investigative agencies are very good at tracing the flow of money, both to him and from him.”
If the prosecution can prove Hasan sent money to terrorists in Pakistan, it could help raise the charge level against him to treason, which, in fact, is exactly what he committed when he murdered the people at the base in cold blood. And again, he deserves to go to death row for his repulsive crime.

Update: The Wash. Times (via Hot Air Headlines) says officials now confirm that Hasan had contact with multiple jihadists.

Update 2: see also this article on The American Thinker (via Molten Thought) about how Shari'a law is de facto being adopted in the US, and why we must do whatever we can to prevent it.

Update 3: and here's another item about the role Saudi Arabia has played in radicalization in the army.
