He said:

It would be a shame — as great a tragedy as this was — it would be a shame if our diversity became a casualty as well.

What idiocy is this? Thirteen soldiers under General Casey’s command are killed and another thirty are wounded by a Muslim fanatic, who’s tenure in the military could only continue because diversity trumped common sense.

General Casey, people up and down your chain of command knew that Hasan was an Al Quaeda sympathizer, yet, because of “diversity”, none of them did anything to get this Muslim whack-job thrown out of the US Army. To the contrary, they promoted him and put him in a target-rich environment.

Thank you, General Casey, for looking after our troops. Sir, diversity is a big umbrella, but I’m pretty certain it doesn’t encompass the likes of Major Hasan.
