Work Place Violence. Sure.

 

Hattip to Ed Morrissey at Hot Air.  Outraged victims and the families of the slain of the murderous rampage of Major Nidal Hassan at Fort Hood in 2009 have created the above video attacking the Obama’s administration’s denial that this was a blatant act of terrorism and labeling it work place violence.

 

A coalition of 160 victims and family members released a video Thursday detailing what happened at the Texas military base on Nov. 5, 2009, and why they believe it was a terror attack.

In “The Truth About Fort Hood,” victims give testimonials about their experience and express their frustration at the government calling the incident “workplace violence.”

They point out that the accused shooter, Maj. Nidal Hasan, consulted by email with top al-Qaida leader Anwar al-Awlaki about whether an attack against American soldiers was justified to “protect our brothers.” Until his death in an airstrike in 2011, Yemen-based Awlaki was considered one of the United States’ top enemies.

The shooting for Hasan “was his jihad,” Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford, who was shot five times that day, said in the video.

Why the denial of the obvious?  First, to pretend that this was not the biggest act of terrorism on our soil to occur since 9-11.  Second, calling it terrorism calls into question the pc attitudes that allowed Major Nidal Hasan to stay in the Army when he was clearly an active jihadi sympathizer and a rotten shrink.  Third, it plays into the administration’s “let’s pretend” effort that the war on terror is over.  Lots of actions of this administration have been worse than this one, but this is one of the more transparently despicable.

  1. Workplace violence?
    After watching this heartbreaking story and how the Osama administration tries cowardly to deny this assault for what it truly is, I believe its only fair to call every day Osama is in Our White House TRULY WORKPLACE VIOLENCE on us.

    Every single day is an assault on Americans from Osama. Yes Osama! Call it what it is.
