      It’s an old term going back to the Vietnam war. Fragging. It should make a comeback.

  • Observer

    I wonder how many Jihadi Johns, Rasheed Hosein mentored at West Point?

  • felis gracilis

    Isn’t this sort of grandstanding for the enemy while in uniform tantamount to desertion? Shouldn’t there be a firing squad somewhere in here.

    • Alain

      Treason fits for me.

    • Certainly, he should at least be thrown out as a security risk.

    The fox in the hen house. And Middle East history? Give me a break!

        The bloody camel is IN the tent in this case.

    “The West Point mentor of a soldier now under investigation by the Army for engaging in political activity while in uniform is on administrative leave,”

    “administrative leave,” usually means a PAID VACATION.

  • Maggat

    Rasheed Hosein, middle east history, one morally buggered up cadet. Amazing how it all falls together.

    • Alain

      It sounds like it may be more than just “morally” buggered; after all they travelled together and likely slep together.

  • ontario john

    Yes, bring in a muslim instructor to West Point. What could possibly go wrong? Meanwhile little Justin wants more muslims in the Canadian military.

    • Blacksmith

      How are they going to fight when they have to stop 5 times a day and wash their feet before praying to the moon rock, not to mention the goat love…….

  • Blacksmith

    Rasheed Hosein, I wonder what cult he worships?

    • Exile1981

      He got his degree in Manitoba and then his MA in Toronto.

      • ontario john

        Oh my God!! Does that mean that little worm in Ottawa will be issuing an apology and ten million dollars to the instructor?

        • Exile1981

          Here is the list of other cadets he has mentored

          Bryan K. Houp ’15, I2

          Ruben A. Maldonado ‘15

          Jacob T. Sanborn ’15, D1

          Troy S. Szwaczkowski ’15, H1

          Zachary C. Affrin ’16, I1

          Spenser R. Rapone ’16, H3

          Someone needs to investigate those other 5 cadets as well.

          Also I notice the Dr. is also Muslim Lay chaplain with the USMA, a member of Phi Alpha Theta and is faculty adviser for the Muslim Cadets Association…. and in charge of the women’s army rugby team for west point.

      • Maggat

        Very impressive, however I would not want him teaching the kindergarten chimpanzees in the local zoo, never mind cadets for the US Army.

        • Exile1981

          If you look through said Bio you’ll notice that he’s sunni and that the oxford dictionary allowed him to define a bunch of islamic religious terms for the next edition. That suggests that the next edition will be full of lies and that it will not accurately depict the way those terms are used in islam.

      • Alain

        Another import that became a Canadian export.

        • John Boy

          It’s like money laundering, but for Islamists and it’s done with a Canadian passport.

  • Dana Garcia

    Why would West Point require the presence of a Rasheed anyway? You can read about Middle Eastern history in a book.

    • Norman_In_New_York

      He was hired in 2011 during the rule of the jihadist-in-chief.

    • Maggat

      Yes, a small book.

  • SDMatt

    Com-pro-mised!!!

  • QiPo

    Thank you, it all becomes much clearer now. The details will be cut to suit, no doubt truth will be sacrificed to save someone’s behind. With all that is known about islam and its ummah, why in the hell would we EVER consider employing them in any capacity inside our military? Are we mentally ill?

    • Tooth&Claw

      We are not mentally ill. naive maybe. Our politicians however, are boughtby various Islamic countries apparently and don’t give a second thought about the future or us. They just don’t care as long as they get a big slice of ‘pie’ from the taxpayer and the foundations they set up.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Buy thankfully the class leader is finally a girl

    • ontario john

      Yes, but is the class leader trans gender?

  • Martin B

    The fact that Mohammedans are professors at West Point is proof that America is still losing the war.

    • Clausewitz

      Maybe they are emulating RMC.

  • APL

    My biggest concern is that despite many examples of Rapone’s antagonism to American values (pictures and Facebook posts), no one seemed to do anything about it. Doesn’t even seem that other cadets gave him a hard time. Does he have some sort of protected status?

    • JoKeR

      He should be automatically made an officer and given a lone permanent unarmed but uniformed mission in Mogadishu. 🙂

  • Barrington Minge

    What a twat. Talk about cake and eat it!!!
