Sen. Susan Collins on Wednesday blasted the Defense Department for classifying the Fort Hood massacre as workplace violence and suggested political correctness is being placed above the security of the nation's Armed Forces at home.
During a joint session of the Senate and House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, the Maine Republican referenced a letter from the Defense Department depicting the Fort Hood shootings as workplace violence. She criticized the Obama administration for failing to identify the threat as radical Islam.

What?!!!!!!!! That was a terrorist attack! Oh, this makes my blood boil!!
I can’t stand Susan Collins but I do thank God that she pointed out this outrage. Words fail.
Workplace violence? Well sure! So was Pearl Harbor! /s
We’re not supposed to change the title of articles.
But you knew that, didn’t you?
Not to mention the attack on 9-11 at all three sites, the twin towers, the Pentagon, and the airplane taken down in Pennsylvania. All in the workplace violence. I suppose a battle field is also a workplace according to their description.
So by that same token, this regime would define the attacks that occurred 70 years ago on Pearl Harbor as a “disagreement.”
Yet another facepalm-inducing “gem of the week” from the worst “administration” — by far — in this Nation’s history.
They cannot even correctly refer to violent work incidents. The correct term for workplace violence is “going Postal.” This attack was jihad, not workplace related. He struck a blow for Allah against the infidels. Ali Akbar, 72 virgins, and so forth.
I guess the 9/11 attacks were to. And Pearl Harbor.
Wow, I’m amazed. Didn’t know the old RINO had it in her.
What happened at FT Hood was an act of war.
Our ignorant President will never allow the islamofacist acts in America be classified as terrorism
To the 0dumbass administration that Pearl Harbor thing was just workplace violence.
Now you know things are bad when Susan Collins can see through it.
Since we are in the midst of a presidential election, let’s all hope that the candidates not let the ball drop on this one.
POUND IT HOME!!!
Run Amuck: White House calls Fort Hood shooting “Workplace Violence”
He should have called it “Muslim violence”.
To prevent duplication, please do not alter the published title. Thanks.
Words cannot describe sheer amazement at hearing this. Next, they’ll be blaming the ARMY for the attack. ..
Ron Paul, Obama and many others already do...

Who signed the letter Senator Susan?
Hold them accountable, and work your way up the Chain of Command. Somewhere there is an email of a directive from the White House. Sic ‘em, Susan!
