Fort Hood Report Calls for Change in Pentagon Hate Group Policy

By Heidi Beirich on January 21, 2010 - 11:31 am, Posted in Extremists in the Military

An independent fact-finding report made public last week by the Pentagon in the wake of the November shooting spree at Fort Hood, Texas, concluded that the Pentagon was not well prepared to defend itself from many internal threats. The report, “Protecting the Force: Lessons From Fort Hood,” focused on the serious breakdown within the military that allowed Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who has been charged with killing 13 people, to advance through the ranks despite concerns from his superiors about his behavior.

The report went much further than the Hasan case, however, examining the Pentagon’s efforts to weed out extremists of all kinds — including those involved in white supremacist hate groups. And it found those efforts lacking. In a section entitled “Indicators That DoD Personnel May Become a Danger to Themselves or Others,” the report states that current Pentagon policies are “outdated and fail to include key indicators of potentially violent behavior.” Specifically cited in this respect is “association with hate groups.”

The report recommends that the DoD (Department of Defense) review its policies on prohibited activities, which it says are currently “limited” and “unclear” and only apply to “active participation in groups [including hate groups] that may pose threats to good order and discipline.” And it proposes that the Pentagon broaden the definition of “active participation” to include “contacting, establishing and/or maintaining relationships with persons or entities that interfere with or present a clear danger to loyalty, discipline, mission, or morale of the troops” and may also “increase an individual’s propensity to commit violence.” The review, which was conducted by Togo D. West Jr., a former secretary of the Army, and Adm. Vernon E. Clark, a former chief of naval operations, suggests that the Pentagon come up with “policy changes” to address these purported failings.

In December, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) wrote to West and Clark about concerns that racist extremists were finding their way into the military’s ranks. The SPLC’s letter stated that the Pentagon’s current policy on “active participation” in hate groups is inadequate. Citing many examples of military personnel posting racist and anti-Semitic materials on the Internet, the SPLC called on the Pentagon to revise its regulations to more broadly prohibit contact with extremists.

J. Richard Cohen, the president and CEO of SPLC, wrote: “The fundamental problem is that current Department of Defense regulations prohibiting ‘active participation’ in extremist groups are inadequate because they can be — and apparently are being — interpreted to allow members of the armed forces to be ‘mere members’ of hate groups or to engage in unaffiliated extremist activities, such as posting racist and anti-Semitic messages to social networking websites and maintaining online profiles filled with racist materials.” The letter was accompanied by dozens of examples of hate material posted on the Web by persons describing themselves as active-duty military personnel.

Since 2006, the SPLC has issued a series of reports documenting white supremacist activity in the military (see here, here and here). At the same time, the SPLC has repeatedly written to the Pentagon and other government leaders about holes in current policies regarding extremists in the military (see here and here). This past July, Stars and Stripes, the independent newspaper for military personnel, ran a major article about the evidence that SPLC had gathered. The paper reported that military officers who its reporters interviewed seemed confused about the current policies and gave “conflicting answers … when asked how policies governing racist behavior is enforced.”

As if to emphasize the reality of the problem, a member of the white supremacist Stormfront.org Web forum on Monday posted a message saying that he or she had “extensive military experience” and had “had many opportunities to influence those around me toward pro-white causes.” “Take control of the US military WHITE MAN,” the post from “NOrthernConfederacy” that also bemoaned a “breakdown” in America concluded. “Every WN [white nationalist] who joins the US military and remembers his people is another stone heaped on the chest of our enemies.”

    Says it right there in black and white. The SPLC is on a personal crusade against Whites only. Where are the reports of any other races in the military that may belong to other-than-military organizations?

    all european-americans in the U.S. army get out as soon as you can. this government since the 60s is proving that they don’t repressent you and the future of your children.

  • dave varez

    dark angel , maybe if you can clearly delineate a point with logic and analysis you will be posted more often , instead of just blindly calling people racists if they dont agree with you.

    That a site more sympathetic to your perspective than mine posts my points and not yours attests to
    credibility of comments , whether agreed to or not.

    As long as posters make outragious statements
    portraying “teabaggers” , many of whom are hard working citizens who generally obey the law and mind their own business , but nonetheless have political differences too great to ignore , as nazi’s – imagine , nazi’s-

    Responses will be forthcoming.

    It should be pointed out that just because racist extremists may have parallel goals to others , it does not follow that the majority
    of political dissenters fit that category anymore than liberals opposed to Thomas , Rice , and Powell can be considered racist extremists just because true racist extremists also opposed them on racial rounds – and note that liberals were never accused of that , but rather only partisan politics.

    “We wouldn’t have “terrorism” if we disassociated ourselves from Israel.”

    Mary , first off , the goals of terrorists extend beyond the borders of Israel , and second ,
    I’d hate to have been a long time friend of yours when the going gets tough.

    You can copy that and post it everywhere if you’d like.

    dark agnel:
    They are just being childish and ignorant, taking credit for someone else’s work; a sure sign of self-hatred, self-insecurity, superiority complex and much more. Still, if they are as smart as they claim then they should proove it, invent something worth while instead of ranting like same broken recorder that they claim to be superior and intelligent race, caucasians did this and did that, negleting everything else like some religious fundamentalist do .. So just ignore them, the more people pay attention to their comments the more fire they get, returning to rant on.

  • Havoth

    OH yeah, and back to the article…It’s good the Military wants to review activism in hate groups. But they need to remember, you can’t legislate against hate, only the actions. You can’t make people love each other, only punish those who cause harm to others and break the law. No need to add new laws either because “don’t kill” already exists…

  • Havoth

    All you guys seem to miss the most fundamental facts:
    It’s not RACE that is the problem or the root of hatred. It’s RELIGION and the zealotry and violence it advocates. The Christian Bible AND the Quran foster as much hatred and rationalizes hatred and intolerance and tacit approval of slavery, homophobia, etc. Same God, same hatreds. Race is not the issue, it’s centuries of being told bullsh*t by so-called prophets and preachers of the Supreme Being’s intent towards people the writers didn’t like, or found irritating. END ALL RELIGIONS and let the bloodthirsty EGOIST desert GOD find some other pot to stir for his amusement. Let Peace Reign. – I believe in GOD, just not religions.

  • mary

    The U. S. military’s goals and efforts do not serve the interests of European-Americans. The military’s main goal at this point is to protect Israel.

    We wouldn’t have “terrorism” if we disassociated ourselves from Israel. We didn’t have a “terrorist” problem before 1948 when Israel was founded and gained U.S. support.

    All current European-American service members need to realize that the interests of the U.S. military and the interests of the their race are not the same.

    If you agree with this post, copy and paste it everywhere.

  • dark angel

    whats wrong with this picture? this racist keeps spewing forth the same anti anything rhetoric and it keeps popping up for all to read and argue about. im smarter than you, is all im hearing. i quit writing here because everytime i did it said, “you already said that and didnt accept my submission. am i to loud or what. as for this coward who keeps going on and on about race, i know his kind personally and i know he is just a follower of someone elses idealogy, he will always argue from his point of view just as the rest of us do . this is what i know to argue from. my own book of knowledge, so if you think you can argue with someone who is obviously deficient in his facts and how to solve real world problems. you are no better. by the way this is everyones country not just for whites. dont think for one second you can win a war with the rest of us. we are coming together eventually ( blacks, latinos, asians and any other ethnic group who wants a place at the table of enlightenment will be welcomed. we have no time for ignorance at this stage of our mental evolutionary process. it will stop, but only when the powers that be address social injustice and we pacify corporate greed.

    Dave, Wilson concluded that the documents regarding Uranium from Niger were false. If someone told me there were official documents proving something, I’d probably be inclined to believe there was something to it as well. After examining the documents he quickly recognized it as a forgery and said so.

  • dave varez

    daemon said :

    “Intelligence gathering capabilities were severely compromised worldwide during the Bush administration when those criminal bastards outed Valarie Plame because Joe Wilson wouldn’t go along with invading Iraq! ”

    First off , Joe Wilson originally claimed there was
    a U connection in Niger , before he changed his story. The Senate ultimately called him a liar.

    Second , “Bush” , or “Cheney” , were not the “criminal basrards” who “outed” Plame.

    Richard Armitage did , and he was from the Colin Powell camp , and at odds with the others.

    Third , Fitzgerald KNEW THIS right from the outset – BECAUSE ARMITAGE TOLD HIM HE DID IT , yet commenced an investigatiion anyway as if he didn’t already have the culprit , going on a witch hunt that only caught Libby in its web on bullshit charges unrelated to anything.

    Fourth – NO COVERT AGENT WAS “OUTED”.

    The woman who wrote the rules on defining a covert agent testified during the investigation , and clearly stated that Plame no longer came under the definition of “covert”.

    This is why Fitzgerald had no basis to , and did not , charge Armitage with any crime.

    This was a non issue turned into a big freakin deal that didn’t exist , and yet “written in liberal talking point history” , as daemon proves with his post.

    You people using the word nazi – and you should NEVER capitalize that word – like it is water running out of a faucet , to encompass any and every group you disagree with , which only serves to negate any credibility you have , and exposes your interest in using hate issues as a tool to advance your polical bent.

    “over 4,000 killed in Iraq for absolutely nothing. So tell me again how “liberals” are putting them in danger?”

    To the best of my knowledge , the liberals voted for Iraq as well?

    The only difference was that they squirmed out of their initial position when it didn’t quite work out so well.

    Jeronimus said :

    it’s the old “Whitey done made him do it” trick! Of course!

    The Ft. Hood tragedy should be enough to end the politically correct stuff and cause us to carefully , but respectfully , vet Muslims in security situations.

    This would be true for any larger group with a subculture of current violence in it.

    But this has nothing to do with cracking down on “white” , or any inappropriate other group.

    That should be done irrespective of this problem.

    ‘Fort Hood Report Calls for Change in Pentagon Hate Group Policy’

    Is there a way to force government officials to push a psychocological screening policy on every military personnel, whether those Military personnel are already enlisted or not? I mean, with this test, perhaps psychologist may red flag racism and other mental dysfunctions before, during and after enlisting, which may help deter further training hateful individual and groups alike.

    Allen he was a immigramt (probably ILLEGAL) with colored skin an an anarchist and besides the SS was not to bright at that point in the game…..lets see…the US was at war with Spain and what was the assassain’s name????

    So maybe they were profiling the wrong person?????

  • Mom of Three

    Well of course some people were concerened about Hasan; afterall he was a Muslim. And we know the current mindset is that all Muslims are suspect and have the potential to do “something” if they won’t conform to the secular mindset of this country. I believe it is the white supremist mindset that is the most dangerous but of course those with such ideals fly under the radar until it’s too late. The continuation of “white priviledge” will be the death of us all.

    “What is with you people? Were you just not around from 2001-2008, or were you indeed born f’ing yesterday?!”

    I think they were in a coma for eight years.

    Seriously, they’re hypocrites. The Oath Keepers, for instance, are convinced that Obama is going to start doing evil things to them. But they have absolutely no comment about Dubya’s eight year Reign of Error, when Dubya okayed warrantless wiretaps, warrantless house searches, a torture gulag, and very loose rules for martial law.

    In short, all the things the Oath Keepers are accusing Obama of…DUBYA ALREADY DID!!!

    And they have nothing but nice things to say about Dubya.

  • Allen

    Answering the claim “Its radical islamic fundamentalists” — ever hear of Timothy McVeigh?

    Lumping hate groups together is a just a smart move; a hate group is a hate group is a hate group. They’re all the same and they’re all equally dangerous. There was a president that was killed because of racial profiling.

    President McKinley’s (there was no Secret Service back then) body guards had their eyes on an African-American guy in the crowd and while they were looking at him it was the white guy who pulled a pistol and shot the President.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    I generally agree with you Allen, but a lot of people fall for WNism because they simply have absolutely no historical knowledge whatsoever. Naturally they can play the conspiracy card pretty frequently, but the thing is that ALL human history argues against their idea of a racially-based world. Eventually some will realize this and start questioning the rhetoric they get from charlatans at Stormfront.

    According to FBI’s “Year in Review” (for 2009) these are the major terror plots that happened in our country. And would you look at that. Every single one of the terrorists are Muslim. No Black Nationalists. No White Nationalists. Hell, not even Marxist-Leninist or Tea Party people. What does that tell you? That Muslim extremists are the most dangerous and murderous ones, and as such, if any extremists that should be singled out for any kind of “special” treatment, then let it be Islamic ones. Just look at some of the cases from FBI’s website for yourselves. Somali immigrants leaving U.S for Somalia, in order to wage terrorism there (some of them have already blown themselves up). Now what would prompt these Somalis to leave their peaceful and quite life in America to return to that hell hole nation of theirs? Especially considering how we get to hear all the time how Somalis are doing everything they can to get out of Somalia. Islam, of course. And then of course, there’s Major Nidal Hassan, an Islamofascist who killed more people in one day than Ku Klux Klan did in the last 50 years. SPLC is obviously using the Fort Hood massacre a trying to exploit the Fort Hood massacre to push its own agenda.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    Hi there Jim. I’ll see your 13 American soldiers and raise you over 4,000 killed in Iraq for absolutely nothing. So tell me again how “liberals” are putting them in danger?

  • Allen

    Ruslan, I realize your intentions are good, but you can’t quote any historical facts or try to reason at all with those WN people. They are living in a whole other world of their own making. They’ll claim your history is “revisionist” and then sink into their own revisionist tirade. If you quote real facts to them, they’ll just claim that you are part of the “conspiracy” to hide the “truth” from us. They’ll totally ignore the obvious fact that if non-whites were able to pull off that kind of “conspiracy” that would definitely put them in the superior intelligence category.

    There’s just no reasoning with a stone; there are no brains there to reason with. You’ll notice that I’ve resigned myself to the fact that the only use in talking to them at all is to make fun of them and have a good laugh.

    daemonesslisa; the same goes for Jim, he’s just coming from the “Obama is a secret Muslim” side of the teabaggers camp, but it’s all the same idiot WN drivel in a different package. Just point your finger and laugh.

  • Fence Sitter

    Look, the whole thing about the ”hate groups” is words. The KKK or the NSM arent shooting up the bases or bombing the markets in other countries. Its radical islamic fundamentalists……..hello!!

    The SPLC has a problem. Running around and making claims that this group or that group is hate fueled, which Potok is only assuming these remarks. He is lumping together many groups, and that is in itself slander. Making slanderous remarks like that will get you in court and old Curly Q might loose….because he cant prove it beyond reasonable doubt. You need to redefine your vernacular and meaning of ”hate groups”……maybe the hate groups will litigate and you will have to PAY for your slander.

    What is with you people? Were you just not around from 2001-2008, or were you indeed born f’ing yesterday?!

  • Jim

    Let’s not lose site of the immediate issue. The military leadership had positive reason to believe that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan was a threat. It was reported up the line and ignored. Now 13 of our soldiers are dead. The current administration has taken away our intelligent gathering abilities and criminalized our CIA while treating our enemies like citizens. Our liberal government is so caught up in not offending the sensitivities of another culture that we’ve forgotten how to defend our citizens. Unless they have also forgotten, we are at war! With terrorism! No matter what the race. But whether they like to admit it or not, 90% of those who want to kill us are radical Muslim. Sorry! Just the facts. So should we profile? Yes! It’s time for common since. When we identify a person with radical muslin ties or anti-American sentiment of any kind (Al-Qaida, Taliban, Rev. Wright) we need to act to protect our citizens and scrutinize anyone with associations to them. The American people, in the last presidential election, failed to do this. And now our failure has cost the lives of 13 American soldiers. Now, what are we going to do about it?

    “Thanks for the enlightenment.”

    No problem, I’m here all week.

    ” if only i could be as progressive and liberal as yourself i might be able to comprehend the cesspool that is becoming america.”

    Sorry but I’m not “liberal”. Also last time I checked, the US, while in decline, is far from a “cesspool” If it seems that bad to you, you might want to reexamine your own life and figure out why you are unable to adapt.

    “But i’m wondering what your solutions to the decline of america would be? is it electing an all-knowing mulatto to the presidency.”

    I didn’t vote for Obama, nor did I support him, nor do I or will I. I’m not sure you want to know my solution.

    ” you say those countries i named do have massive immigration problems. O.K. well then i’m sure there are a lot of them that are pissed. as they have a right to be.”

    I don’t say that- the facts say that. But actually they shouldn’t be that pissed off, or at least not pissed off at the immigrants. Human migration these days is largely a product of capitalism.

    ” but i don’t see millions of non-africans being flooded into africa.”

    Why would they? It’s not exactly a land of opportunity. People go to where the jobs are. There’s Indian immigration of course, and a lot of immigration between African countries.

    ” surely the solution to our nations decline must be more multi-million dollar grants to help the poor minorities of this country. ”

    When did this happen?

    “maybe more after-school programs.”

    Social program paid for by the US government are open to all who need them, including white children, a large portion of which are impoverished.

    “race is real and it matter.”

    Nope…

    ” the reason the white nations led the world into the industrial revolution and into the first world nations is because there is something distinct about the white race. ”

    So why then did civilization begin in Mesopotamia, Egypt, China, etc.? Europe was far behind China for many centuries.

    “whether it be a combination of IQ and creativity.”

    Any proof of this?

    ” they built massive skyscrapper cities and sent men into space. surely u don’t think this is some miraculous coincidence.”

    In the modern era they did. Throughout a great deal of Europe’s history it was far behind other civilizations, primarily China.

    ” i know you think i have a small simple mind. i know that.”

    The first correct statement you have made here.

    ” but a look at the barrios and ghettos of the inner cities is just the prelude to what will become the entire nation if the third-worlders are allowed to poor in.”

    Actually ghettoes have more to do with deindustrialization and housing discrimination. And as for the rest of that well- they said the same about the Irish.

O.K. well then i’m sure there are a lot of them that are pissed. as they have a right to be. but i don’t see millions of non-africans being flooded into africa. how long would that take before some africans claimed genocide. surely the solution to our nations decline must be more multi-million dollar grants to help the poor minorities of this country. maybe more after-school programs. if only they had enough money to live happy lives then all would be well. race is real and it matter. the reason the white nations led the world into the industrial revolution and into the first world nations is because there is something distinct about the white race. whether it be a combination of IQ and creativity. they built massive skyscrapper cities and sent men into space. surely u don’t think this is some miraculous coincidence. i know you think i have a small simple mind. i know that. but a look at the barrios and ghettos of the inner cities is just the prelude to what will become the entire nation if the third-worlders are allowed to poor in.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    Oh joy, a kindly WN appears, driving a big dump-truck of fail.

    First off Curtis, nations like China and Mexico do have immigration issues. In case you didn’t know, pretty much anywhere in the world where one country has higher standards of living than those around it, people from the latter attempt to immigrate in large numbers. Had you bothered to actually check, you would know this.

    Mongolia for example, has a neo-Nazi movement which blames the country’s problems on Chinese immigration. I tend to think that like anti-immigration Americans, they are blowing this way out of proportion, as Mongolia has actually experienced an upsurge in traditional nomadism since the fall of socialism in that country(while this means a lower standard of living, it is self-sustaining unlike urban living).

    The United States was not created for “white” people; in fact that term got its origin in the States for political purposes. The “white” folks of the USA were just as dismayed about the “flood” of immigrants from Ireland, and Southern/Eastern Europe as modern ones are angry about Mexicans.

    All that being said, all manner of statistical studies show that “whites” are far from disadvantaged in the US, whether we look at hiring statistics or net worth of families.

  • curtis

    this nation was founded by white europeans for white europeans. you call yourselves anti-racists but what you really mean is you’re anti-white. Nobody is flooding china with non-chinese and giving them affirmative action over chinese. nobody is flooding mexico with non-mexicans and demanding mexicans move aside and allow that to happen. the flooding of third worlders is only happening and being allowed in white nations. the only ones negatively impacted are the futures of white children. its genocide. you say the race problem will be solved when the colored races of the world poor into the white nations and “assimilate” with them, but this is not happening in japan or india. only white nations are affected by this and white children are on the losing side. you say whites are pissed. your damn right they are and for good reason.

  • Jimbo

    Actually, it was – no doubt – a ‘WN whitey’ who tore up his ‘Islam Means Peace’ Bumper Sticker; a ‘WN whitey’ who derided his attempts to reach out to his Fellow Americans – his attempts to reach a mutual understanding, after his co-religionists committed the 9/11 attacks (don’t suppose he felt the need to prove that he still ‘Loved His Neighbors”, do ya?); and an Ultra-Zionist ‘whitey’ who made it ‘OK’ for Israel to bomb the crap outta his fellow Palastinians.
    Just how, Jeronimus, would YOU react to that? I’d bet you’d be reaching for a GUN.
    Get some perspective! Although I’m certainly not condoning his attacks, it wasn’t so much that we ‘missed the warning signs’, it was that we BLEW the many opportunities that he offered us, to help him feel like ‘one of us’ – as he was trying to help us feel more comfortable with him being ‘one of us’, as well.

  • Jeronimus

    Liberal logic:

    A Muslim milltary officer who provided ample notice of his intentions goes on a shooting spree.

    Therefore, crack down on white soldiers who make pro-white speech and have pro-white associations.

    it’s the old “Whitey done made him do it” trick! Of course!

  • Allen

    I was in the Army from 89 to 96 and I can vouch that racist activity is very much tolerated (at least it was then) and they will make any excuse they can for not investigating extremist activity. When I was in it was rampant in the units I served in, yet when I reported it up the chain of command or to CID I was never taken seriously. I was, in their eyes, a “paranoid kook”.

    The only explanation I can fathom for this tolerance of extremist activity in the military is that the military (any military anywhere) is by its very nature an extremist organization; it is the extreme last resort of diplomacy in any given disagreement. So, when extremists are in the military it doesn’t phase them, it’s like finding a leaf in the forest.

    The Pentagon has a similar situation with religious proselytization. Higher-ups are protecting violators.
