[WATCH] The Democrats War on the Fort Hood Victims…It’s Terrorism at Its Worst
What is it that democrats, particularly Obama and the Pentagon have against the victims of the Fort Hood shooting? It’s been nearly four years since admitted terrorist, Nidal Malik Hasan, shot up Fort Hood, killing 13 and wounding another thirty. But the wounds that many suffered that day, was not the end of their ordeal or the ordeal suffered by the survivors of those who lost their lives. The Obama military has ruled the shooting a workplace violence shooting.
Hasan was in communication with Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical cleric with ties to several terrorists. That New York Times article addresses the fact that Hasan, who once belonged to a mosque where al-Awlaki was the leader, communicated with him 10 to 20 times. What’s more, the military knew about it. In their official report, they made the absurd claim that those communications could be explained by a study Hasan was doing on post traumatic disorder. Huh? After the shooting, al-Awlaki released a statement , saying that Hasan “did the right thing” by attacking military personnel about to deploy to battle radical Islamists. al-Awlaki also said:
“The only way a Muslim could Islamically justify serving as a soldier in the U.S. Army is if his intention is to follow the footsteps of men like Nidal.”
Before Hasan began shooting, he shouted out, “Allahu akbar,”, which means, “Allah is the Greatest.” It’s a phrase that terrorists use just before they commit their dastardly acts.
Hasan tried to use the “in the defense of others” defense but the judge disallowed it.
How can you look at the facts and not know it was an act of terrorism. You can’t, which makes it all the more ominous.
For the victims of Hasan, the difference between workplace violence and a terrorist attack is night and day. It prevents them from receiving their military benefits, which has been devastating for families, many of whom are deeply in debt and living in poverty. They are not eligible for their military disability pension and in many cases are responsible for at least some of their medical bills.
Eighty of the injured and their families have sued the Pentagon to get their rightful due, but that case has been stalled for years. First, the government argued that proceeding with the case would rob Hasan of a fair trial and now they say that even though Hasan has been convicted, the trial isn’t really over because the case isn’t final until the base commander has read the trial transcripts, that the Pentagon and prosecutors have yet to release.
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, is planning to hold hearings to determine why the victims have not received what they are owed. The victims are happy about the new development, but do not believe it will help their cause. Obama’s defenders point to the fact that it was the Pentagon who made the decision. If I am not mistaken, the commander-in-chief is the ultimate decider. And from what I hear Obama is in really tight with Valerie Jarrett.
And on a side note, let me remind you that Hasan’s shooting spree only ended because a policeman with a gun shot him. None of the soldiers on the base was allowed to carry a gun. The same thing occurred at the Washington Navy Yard. Maybe our decision makers should have tried as accessories.
