Former Counterterrorism Head: FBI Never Called Ft. Hood 'Workplace Violence'
Breitbart News ^ | 5/20/12 | Kerrry Picket

Posted on 05/20/2013 1:19:02 PM PDT by paltz

Michael Steinbach, former head of the FBI’s counterterrorism division and now special agent in charge of Miami, told over 30 congressional staffers in March of 2012 that, contrary to the White House's classification, the bureau does not refer to the Fort Hood shooting as "workplace violence." As head of the FBI counterterrorism division, Steinbach oversaw the investigation into the mass murder at Texas Army base.

Steinbach made this claim during an unclassified counterterrorism briefing on Capitol Hill.

“Workplace Violence”?

That’s an Obamanism. The Head Muzzie in Cheif owns that phrase.

What do you call it when a self-proclaimed “Soldier of Allah” shouting “Allahu Akhbar” opens fire on dozens of US citizens — killing and maiming as many innocents as he can?

You call it terrorism, if you’re sane.

And “workplace violence,” if you’re the Obama administration.

That’s right: Three years after Nidal Malik Hasan’s jihadist shooting spree at Fort Hood, Texas, in which he murdered 13 people and wounded 29 more, the Defense Department still refuses to classify the attack as what it is: an act of terror.

Instead, it continues to label the shooting officially a case of “workplace violence.”

So, the DOD gets it wrong, but the FBI gets it right?

Looks like a pattern. Go back to TWA800. Had to concoct a bogus explanation for that one because Clinton needed to get reelected. Obama makes up alternative explanations for Fort Hood, Benghazi, etc. How many more sanitized stories have they put out there?

For the dead soldiers’ families, they were denied Purple Heart medals. Same for the wounded survivors. What a disgrace that Pentagon top brass haven’t overturned Dear Leader Obamuslim’s “workplace violence” ruling.

The Army’s chief of staff at the time of the Fort hood attack, Gen. George Casey, said in November of 2012: “As horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse.”

I have the feeling none of his children (if he's married to a woman) have been murdered. The 'diversity' comment will go down in history as one of the stupidest comments ever uttered by an active duty military officer.

Gen. Casey’s political correctness is the main reason that the Fort Hood jihadi mass murderer Nidal Hasan will never I mean NEVER be court-martialed & convicted.

Because if the defiant bearded soldier-of-allah Hasan goes down, his entire chain of command at the time becomes wide open to an @ss of wrongful death civil suits from survivors & family members. The Pentagon’s perfumed princes must insure that this will not happen.

Hasan will die of old age in his privileged cell first.
