Outrage: DoD’s final report classifies Fort Hood jihad as “workplace violence”
AIP ^ | August 20, 2010

Posted on 08/21/2010 9:24:51 AM PDT by La Lydia

... Offensive jihad in the name of Islam against the U.S. military – perpetrated by a Muslim member of the military – who preached jihad – is now being referred to by the Department of Defense as “workplace violence.”.... Defense.gov News Article: Pentagon Releases Final Fort Hood Shooting Review.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 20, 2010 – Pentagon officials today released the Defense Department’s final review of recommendations issued by an independent panel in the wake of the Nov. 5, 2009, shooting spree on Fort Hood, Texas. Among the department’s top priorities, as outlined in the review, are boosting on-base emergency response capabilities, improving law enforcement and force protection information sharing with partner agencies, and integrating force protection policy, a Defense Department news release said.

In a memorandum signed Aug. 18, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said he carefully considered the panel’s recommendations — detailed in the report titled, “Protecting the Force: Lessons Learned from Fort Hood” — and is directing the department to take “appropriate action” to address the initiatives detailed in the follow-on review....

Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, allegedly opened fire at a Fort Hood facility where soldiers were processing for overseas deployments. He has been charged with 13 counts of murder and 32 counts of attempted murder...

The review puts forth “concrete actions” for the majority of the recommendations, Gates said...In particular, he said, the department will strengthen its policies, programs and procedures in the following areas:

– Educating commanders about the symptoms of potential workplace violence and the tools available to them to address it;

After a cursory review, responding to future acts of jihad (although DoD won’t call it that) seems to be a significant focus of the recommendations. One would think preventing infiltration of the U.S. military by jihadists and stealth jihadists would be the focus rather than responding to future attacks.

Additionally, much of the recommendation revolve around health care, and access to health records of military members. Jihad does not appear to even be mentioned, although the version we’ve seen is unsearchable so that has not been confirmed yet.

This is an insult to the families of the dead at Ft Hood,
and the dead from the 911 Atrocities, and the dead on
the battlefields that protected America.

The DoD clearly wants more. Wants more of this for America.

The guy who was shouting “Allah Ahkbar” as he was shooting?

“Workplace violence”? Nominally, yes. But it was not his work environment that motivated him. It was his religion.

Let me get this right. An attack on a a US military base by a Muslim terrorist is workplace violence? So by extension of this logic, when our finest are deployed in Afghanistan and attacked... that's also workplace violence. After all, the military "works" around the world.

And our response is to educate commanders about the symptoms of this violence... etc. Who came up with this garbage, a college workshop study group? . . . Oh, I'm sorry, the current administration. Same thing.

One way to stop Jihad terror in the workplace of a military base is to arm the military police on base They could at the very least cut down the number of victims!

They are not so blind as those who refuse to see. They SEE just fine and they arrived at the Workplace violence on purpose. It was NOT workplace violence. It was a terrorist who murdered all those people. He was a TERRORIST plain and simple. DOD should hang their heads in SHAME. In SHAME.

The Pentagon is following the orders of the Commander In Chief.

Protecting Muslims at the expense of our troops...maybe our commanders have gone native?

Or maybe this is a surrender?

When Obama is finally deposed, details about this regime’s anti-American agenda and cover ups will come to light that will be truely horrifying. And rest assured they will come out in a torrent of revelations once people feel safe in speaking out.

Political correctness is going to kill this country. This jihadist, in a common sense world, would have been taken out and shot by the DoD as an enemy of freedom and America. The lefty government will never get it, because they don’t want to. They just don’t care who gets killed by terrorists, unless it’s one of the terrorists. Then they seem to care. Traitors.

If this is the final word...then it won’t be accepted by anyone in the US military.

I will offer one observation though. At his previous assignment...over the last three years there, there were clear indicators that would have drawn attention and been used to discharge him...had he not been in the medical field. Had he exhibited any of these signals at a infantry post or some intelligence unit...it would taken three months to write up the paperwork and follow through on the discharge. The fact that he never passed his PT test and rarely attended PT...says alot about this officer.

It's possible that they're simply following orders handed down through the chain of command.

Do they think we’re all just going to go, “All right then, no jihad, nothing to worry about”?
I hope not. Either way they'll just follow their orders without caring what anyone thinks "'cause they're following their orders". (oath? what oath?)

Why can’t the Pentagon call it what it is?
If they're ordered not to then that's what they do. They're automatons these days.

How can the Pentagon defend us if the Pentagon can’t even identify the enemy?
I have no doubt they can identify the enemy. It's the vocalization of the identification and removal thereof that seems to be the problem.

Army Maj. Nidal Hasan will probably be invited as a guest of honor at the groundbreaking at the Cordoba House Mosque on September 11th. But, he has no ties to radical Islam. He just has an anger management problem. Just before he gets violent, he blurts out “Allahu Akbar”, but he has no ties to radical Islam. He just a little troubled. He’ll be OK.

Most MP's/MAA's on military bases are armed. So are the rent-a-cops who work there.

What’s a PT test?
Physical training. Minimal physical endurance test. Run, sit-ups, jumping jacks, squat thrusts, rope climb, obstacle course, etc.
"PT" was a Navy expression I was all too familiar with.
Different branches call it different things and have different requirements.

Simply impossible. All bases have security on them 24-7.
Both Sgt Mark Todd and Sgt Kimberly Munley, the woman credited with shooting Hasan, were rent-a-cops.

Army to hire 3,000 security guards
The Army is converting about 2,500 installation access control point security guard positions from contractor to federal employee status at nearly 50 stateside locations.

They're often called "Security Police" or "Security Officer".

Related...Second phase of security guard conversion begins in August Jul 12, 2010
The conversion is being made due to congressional mandates and the expected loss of a waiver established after 9/11 that allowed the Department of Defense to contract security guard services at military installations in the U.S., said Craig Shreiner, branch chief of physical security for IMCOM.

Rent-a-cops on military installations are nothing more than armed security guards.

There had better be a real journalist at the next WH Press briefing with the integrity to ask the logical, obvious questions about this report and the invesigation on which it was based.

Let’s start with this:
1) Who, specifically, instructed that the words terrorism, Muslim, and Islamic were not to be used in this report? And on what rationale and what authority?

Whether Gibbs answers or not (he won’t) is immaterial. The questions must be asked. And asked again. And reported each and every time they are asked.

We must start holding our elected and appointed officials accountable. A “department” did not investigate this incident or write the report or make the recommendations. People did. And they have names.
