The Monday morning quarterbacks are out in force seeking to uncover why someone in the vast bureaucracy of the government that devotes endless hours seeking to uncover terrorists was not able to spot the deranged Major Hasan. Senator Leahy is curious as to why the dots were not connected and Hasan caught before he killed anyone. The one certainty of American life is that after any tragedy, an investigating committee is formed to find out about dots and why no one identified patterns. Of course, on the extreme conspiracy theorists already are claiming someone in the Obama administration knew all about Hasan but did nothing to halt the carnage. We will shortly learn that Major Hasan is the long lost brother of Barack Obama.
Reality is often difficult to accept. There are always dots that are never connected because in 99% of dot cases nothing will happen. There is no way anyone can prevent an emotionally sick individual to kill. This country prides itself on the right to have access to guns and other weapons which is a guarantee at some point a sick person will kill. Sick people killing is the equivalent of emotionally unstable people in cars who wind up killing. There is no conspiracy, there are just sick humans.
