Ever eager to be fair minded and get all sides of the story, the New York Times is eager to deflect speculation that this is related to the man's religion and superior loyalties to Islam over those of the country which is his home. There were two interesting and incredible comments in the New York Times article covering this tragedy. Feeling bullied about one's religion is an everyday occurance for a Catholic:
"There is no evidence, however, to suggest the attack was linked to terrorism, he said."
"The New York Times reports that Hasan felt he was harassed because he was a Muslim. CNN said he was being tracked by the federal government because of inflammatory views about suicide bombings expressed on the Internet."
