On November 5, 2009, after consultation with, and inspired by, al Qaeda terrorist leader Anwar al-Awlaki, Army Major Nidal Hasan attacked soldiers and civilians at Fort Hood, Texas. Hasan's attack, the most lethal terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11, left 14 Americans dead, more than 30 wounded by gunshots, and many more injured.
The U.S. government knew Hasan was a serious security risk who sought religious sanction from Awlaki for suicide attacks that killed innocents, yet the government was concerned more with protecting Hasan's career than with protecting the men and women who served with him. Evidence from a bipartisan Congressional investigation and an independent report commissioned by the FBI demonstrates that Hasan's attack was terrorism by any reasonable definition, including the one used by the Department of Defense (DoD). Yet DoD stubbornly maintains that the attack was merely 'workplace violence' to avoid responsibility for the government's role in enabling Hasan's attack and to protect the officials who closed their eyes to the threat. As a result, the victims continue to be denied the recognition and benefits they are rightfully due.
Support the brave men and women of Fort Hood, and add your voice to this petition, to ask the Administration to stop the charade and recognize the shooting as the act of terrorism it was, to hold accountable the high level officials responsible for the policies that caused this attack to prevent future failures, and to provide the soldiers, victims and their families with appropriate recognition, including Purple Hearts, and fair compensation for all of their injuries. The Fort Hood Heroes deserve justice, respect and dignity.
Classifying this tragedy as "Workplace Violence" is an outrageous INSULT to our soldiers. All involved with this charade should be fired.
What happened at Ft Hood was a terrorist attack.
Being in touch with terrorists before he did what he did.
He said Alahu Akbar....
He now wants to join ISIS
How much proof do you need???
When people get mislead/lied to, they no longer feel they can trust politicians/President.
Beyond OUTRAGEOUS - BEYOND UNBELIEVEABLE - WILL THE MANUPUPULATION OF INFORMATION AND THE ABANDOENT OF COMMON SENSE CONTINE FOR MORE THAN TWO MORE YEARS?
IF NOTHING ELSE, GET THOSE SUFFERING FAMALIES THEIR RIGHTFUL BENEFITS. IT PAINS ME TO EVEN HAVE TO PROD THIS UNQUESTIONABLE ISSUE. GOD HELP US.
