Fort Hood Shootings

via Members of Congress Demand Obama Administration Classify Ft. Hood Attack an ‘Act of Terrorism’ – ABC News.

In the wake of an ABC News story detailing claims by victims of the Fort Hood shooting that they have been neglected by the military and ‘betrayed’ by President Obama, the chair of the House Homeland Security Committee has sent a letter to his fellow members of Congress demanding that the Obama administration classify the attack as a terrorist act and provide full benefits to the victims and their families.

“It is time for the administration to recognize the Fort Hood shooting for what it is—an act of terrorism,” wrote Rep. Michael McCaul, R.-Texas, in a letter cosigned by Rep. Frank Wolf, R.-Virginia. “To date, the Department of Defense and the Army classify this attack [as] ‘workplace violence,’ despite mountains of evidence [that] clearly proves the Ft. Hood shooting was an act of terror.”

The letter recommends that members of Congress view the ABC News report, “which highlights the broken promises made to the victims of that attack by the Obama Administration. The video contains never-seen-before footage of the terrorist attack and moving interviews with several of the survivors.”

“As this news piece makes clear,” wrote McCaul and Wolf, “the result of this inexcusable [workplace violence] classification … is that victims and their families have not received the same recognition or medical and financial benefits as those wounded or killed in war.”

On Tuesday, Rep. Wolf took to the floor of the House to urge members to watch the ABC News report, and said Ft. Hood was “clearly a terrorist attack.”

“While the Obama administration has designated the attack that killed all those people as workplace violence, the survivors cannot get assistance,” said Wolf. “Secretary of Defense Panetta, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Dempsey, Attorney General Holder and the President of the United States have failed, failed the people and continue to fail the people that were wounded and killed, and their families at Fort Hood.”

More: Congressman Reintroduces Bill to Help Ft. Hood Shooting Victims

The Congressman whose district includes Ft. Hood is reintroducing a bill that will help victims of the 2009 shooting at the Texas Army base receive full benefits and make them eligible for the Purple Heart or the civilian equivalent.

“Shortly after the shooting, I introduced The Fort Hood Families Benefits Protection Act, which would award both military and civilian casualties of the Fort Hood attack combatant status,” said Rep. John Carter, R.-Texas. “It became clear early on that the Obama administration was reluctant to officially refer to the November 5, 2009 attack on Fort Hood as a ‘terrorist attack.'”

Carter announced the reintroduction of the bill in the wake of an ABC News investigation detailing claims by victims that they have been neglected by the military. In a report that aired on “World News with Diane Sawyer” and “Nightline,” former police sergeant Kimberly Munley, who helped stop the Ft. Hood shooting, said she felt “betrayed” by President Obama and that he broke a promise to make sure the victims would be well taken care of.

  1. This should have been brought to the American public sooner, but again the MSM protects Obama. Shame on them!

  2. Is the Congress finally listening to us?

    I can only “Pray!”

  3. No Muslim wants it called a terrorist attack. It will make all that bull shit they have been throwing around about how peaceful and loving every one is, in the Islamic Religion, a lie. Like they say, once a Muslim, always a Muslim. Guess what; Obama, was and is a Muslim.

    • Right on, ‘he’, unfortunately there are so many of the blind, who “will not see”. He’s also a Kenyan–or have millions of Kenyans got it wrong?

  4. The Ft. Hood shooting reminds me of the 1993 WTC bombing or the attack on the USS Cole–a precursor of larger, more lethal events to come. Obama is doing the same thing as Clinton. Ignore the problem or treat it as a law enforcement issue, and move on to the next domestic policy redistributionist giveaways to distract the public from your failed record on security.

    The only problem is that it emboldens the enemy to stage larger attacks that a Republican will have to clean up later on.

  5. At least somebody finally said something.

  6. [...] Members of Congress Demand Obama Classify Ft. Hood Attack an ‘Act of Terrorism’ [...]

  7. Forwarned. KKK used white sheets to intimate and murder blacks. Now some muslim women are submissive by wearing black in public sometimes in sun. Some men have worn hifab (black) to rob banks and commit crimes. Wake up=follow black clothe. How soon will there be knocks at doors by some dressed in black. Criminal non-muslims/infidels use black for crimes.

  8. Oh they ” Demand ” do they ? , well , I’m sure obama will get right on it !.

  9. Has anyone heard what the final outcome is?

  10. [...] soldiers attacked and murdered by an Islamic jihadi on a U.S. military base is not combat and does not warrant a Purple Heart. And [...]
