The Obama administration is just adding insult to injury….literally. The victims of the shooting that took place in November of 2009 at Ft. Hood are denied benefits given for combat injuries because of the refusal of the Obama administration to label that attack as an act of terrorism. Instead they have referred to it with the insulting brand of “work place violence.”
Even though Major Nidal Hasan is alleged to have carried out the attack while Screaming “Allahu Akbar,” the administration continues to refuses to call it what it was, thus denying much needed benefits to the families of thirteen who were killed and thirty-two who were wounded in the attack, many of whom sill require physical therapy, psychological treatments and medical treatments.
Texas Governor Rick Perry is on board with labeling the shooting an act of terror.
— Office of Gov Perry (@TexGov) October 19, 2012
“The brave soldiers and civilians killed and wounded during the clear commission of an act of terror should be afforded the same benefits and honors as those who are killed or wounded on the field of battle. It is senseless for President Obama to deny these heroes and their families all of the benefits and honors they are due.
“President Obama’s refusal to call it an act of terror is a shining example of this administration’s devotion to political correctness over the defense of our men and women in uniform.”
