The Washington Post is reporting that Hasan is a “very devout” Muslim:
He had been a “very devout” worshiper at the Muslim Community Center in Silver Spring, attending prayers at least once a day, often in his Army fatigues, said Faizul Khan, a former imam there.
The WaPo and other outlets are confirming the earlier reports that Hasan was strongly opposed to the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts and was agitated about his upcoming deployment to one of those wars. The Post also says:
“He came to mosque one or two times to see if there were any suitable girls to marry,” Khan said. “I don’t think he ever had a match, because he had too many conditions. He wanted a girl who was very religious, prays five times a day.”…
A co-worker at Walter Reed said Hasan would not allow his photo to be taken with female co-workers, which became an issue during Christmas season when employees often took group photos. Co-workers would find a solo photo of Hasan and post it on the bulletin board without his permission.
A former neighbor of Hasan’s in Silver Spring, Md., told Fox News he lived there for two years with his brother and had the word “Allah” on the door.
He was reportedly handing out copies of the Koran this morning:
News Channel 25’s Henry Rosoff has learned the Hasan, was giving all of his furniture along with copies of the Qu’ ran to neighbors Thursday morning.
CNN has surveillance video of Hasan in traditional garb:
This is all an important part of who this shooter is.
And L.A. Times readers still don’t even know he is a Muslim.
When we decide you need to know, that’s when you’ll know.
