Three years after the White House arranged a hero's welcome at the State of the Union address for the Fort Hood police sergeant and her partner who stopped the deadly shooting there, Kimberly Munley says President Obama broke the promise he made to her that the victims would be well taken care of.

"Betrayed is a good word," former Sgt. Munley told ABC News in a tearful interview to be broadcast tonight on "World News with Diane Sawyer" and "Nightline."

"Not to the least little bit have the victims been taken care of," she said. "In fact they've been neglected."

There was no immediate comment from the White House about Munley's allegations.

The White House and Pentagon have refused to characterize the attack as terrorism, instead terming it “workplace violence.” The victims have been denied Purple Hearts and are suing the military because they claim the “workplace violence” designation gives them diminished access to medical care and financial benefits normally available to those whose wounds are designated as “combat related.”

Yeah. We need to focus more on whether the murderer Maj. Nidal Hasan should shave his beard or not.

The murderous muzzie shooter was/is treated better than our own Troops. Pitiful.

It’s shameful. Deplorable.

God Bless our military heroes and their families.

I am not familiar with the military’s definitions for these designations, but I would assume that “combat related” is intended to refer to soldiers wounded after being ordered into a combat zone. Not to unarmed soldiers attacked on a US base by a fellow soldier turned terrorist.

I certainly wish the victims were being treated better, but I’m not entirely sure “combat related” designation is appropriate.

Did the victims on 9-11 die of combat-related injuries? Arguably those on Flight 93 did, but the others?

I have no sympathy for any ignoramus used as a prop by the Kenyan Pirate. She didn’t know President Teleprompter was a hoax? Hope she enjoyed her 15 minutes of fame; Obama has no use for token white ladies.

This quick 'n dirty search came up with this info: Definition of a combat-related injury has changed!

To me, any way you cut it, the military gets screwed.

We spent millions keeping this bag of feces alive, and he hasn’t gone to trial yet.

We spend more time being sure the Muslim shooter gets his rights than we do for the people he shot.

Why is this piece of excrement still breathing?

"To award a Purple Heart, it has to be done by a foreign terrorist element," said McHugh. "So to declare that soldier a foreign terrorist, we are told, I'm not an attorney and I don't run the Justice Department, but we're told would have a profound effect on the ability to conduct the trial."

He should be on trial for treason.

He was a US Army commissioned officer who took up arms against his fellow soldiers in effort to give aid and comfort to a foreign enemy.

That is the very definition of treason!.

These wounded soldiers deserve the purple heart.

"He should be on trial for treason."

No, he should have been SHOT for treason several years ago. Obama wants to prove his liberal bona fides by treating foreign terrorists as common criminals, giving them the full protections of the US court system. This precludes Purple Hearts and other war zone treatments for the victims.

An honest president would have allowed a quick military trial and swift death by hanging or firing squad.

No argument from me but the lawyers have found that dragging out justice means more billable hours to the government. Speedy justice is a thing of the distant past.

Well honest presidents are a thing of the distant past as well. The last one may have been Jackson who as far as my reading of history was a brutally honest man.
