Lawmakers Blast Administration For Calling Fort Hood Massacre ‘Workplace Violence’

FoxNews: Sen. Susan Collins on Wednesday blasted the Defense Department for classifying the Fort Hood massacre as workplace violence and suggested political correctness is being placed above the security of the nation’s Armed Forces at home.

During a joint session of the Senate and House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, the Maine Republican referenced a letter from the Defense Department depicting the Fort Hood shootings as workplace violence. She criticized the Obama administration for failing to identify the threat as radical Islam.
Thirteen people were killed and dozens more wounded at Fort Hood in 2009, and the number of alleged plots targeting the military has grown significantly since then. Lawmakers said there have been 33 plots against the U.S. military since Sept. 11, 2001, and 70 percent of those threats have been since mid-2009.  Major Nidal Hasan, a former Army psychiatrist, who is being held for the attacks, allegedly was inspired by radical U.S.-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen in late September. The two men exchanged as many as 20 emails, according to U.S. officials, and Awlaki declared Hasan a hero. 

Rep. Peter King of New York, the Republican chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said military service members are “symbols of America’s power, symbols of America’s might.” 

While King was heavily criticized, in some quarters, for launching his hearings 10 months ago on homegrown terrorism, the congressman said the joint session shows the threat is legitimate, and recognized as such by other members of Congress.
“To me it’s a validation of what I’ve been trying to do all year,” King emphasized. “There’s a definite threat from Islamic radicalization in various parts of our society, including within the military, and we can’t allow political correctness to keep us from exposing this threat for what it is.”

Workplace violence, riiiiiight.  In November 2009 Michelle Malkin spelled it out quite nicely for what this really was:
Fort Hood jihadist Nidal Hasan made his means, motives, and inspiration all too clear for those willing to see and hear. In his 2007 slide presentation to fellow Army doctors on “The Koranic World View As It Relates to Muslims in the Military,” Hasan spelled it out: “We love death more then (sic) you love life!”
This administration can call it what it wants.  It won’t change the facts.

Workplace violence? So his screaming “Allah ackbar!” had nothing to do with it? What made snap and go Postal– the stress of being a dirtbag and not taken seriously?

This should come as no surprise. If they were interested in the truth this report would have taken less than six months to come out. I mean how more obvious can it be than printing “Soldier of allah” on your business cards. Really? REALLY?!!!!!!! I am often amazed that people this incredibly stupid made it to any advanced age without accidentally closing their heads in a car door, falling down an open elevator shaft, or doing something else so BONEHEADED as to cause their early demise!!!!
