... 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 Departments 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 departments 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 panels 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 wont 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 weve seen is unsearchable so that has not been confirmed yet.
Why is Obama always protecting Muslims?
Is that a surprise?
This makes me want to scream at the top of my lungs! America as we know and love it will be dead within 20 years.
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.
9/11 - Workplace violence?
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.
None are so blind as those who refuse to see.
“allegedly” - isn't that a damnable lie??
WHAT? Do they think we or radical Muslim stupid? We know what was and so do the Muslims.
This is Politically Correct Bovine Scat
From Audacity of Hope:
"I will stand with the Muslims
should the political winds
shift in an ugly direction."
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.
Workplace violence? A coverup of a deranged muslim full of hate killing our troops. Obama IS A MUSLIM. There is NO DOUBT.
And why is the Pentagon protecting a Muslim who opened fire on the military? Do they think we’re all just going to go, “All right then, no jihad, nothing to worry about”? Why can’t the Pentagon call it what it is? How can the Pentagon defend us if the Pentagon can’t even identify the enemy?
None at all.
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!
None are so blind as those who refuse to see.
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?
