The Armys Fort Hood Disgrace
No one who supervised the shooter has been held to account, but the victims are denied pay and benefits.

It was more than five years ago that the gunshots rang out, but those of us who survived can still hear their echoes. On Nov. 5, 2009, an Army psychiatrist named Nidal Hasanan American radicalized by extremist Islamic beliefsopened fire on his fellow soldiers in Fort Hood, Texas, killing 14 people, including an unborn child, and wounding 32.
I was there. A beloved friend, Capt. John Gaffaney, died at my knees. I was slated to become the shooters
That day has faded from the minds of most Americans. But the survivors and the families of the deceased continually relive its horror. They also continue to face betrayal by the government they served. ***
At about 1:34 p.m., Hasan, seated in a building on base and armed with an FN five-seven pistol and a Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum revolver, paused to bow his head. Then he stood up from behind a cubicle, shouted Allahu akbar! (God is great) and began spraying bullets throughout the room. Soldiers, including my friend John, charged the shooter but were gunned down before they could reach him.

"The victims of Nidal Hasan were denied pay, benefits and recognition because our leaders refused to acknowledge what the massacre clearly was: an act of terror by an Islamic extremist. They said it wasnt combat, but it sure as hell felt like that. Hasan turned Fort Hood into a battlefield.
Congress has provided an opening to give my fellow soldiers what they are owed. Its time for the Army to do so.
Ms. Platoni is a clinical psychologist and retired Army colonel."
TIme to get SOME sort of ball rolling on this one!!
Save for later
“Workplace violence” Another one of Obamas acts of treason if you ask me which is why I just changed my tagline from 13 to 14. Just like the code states, Obama is “adhering to the enemy, giving aid and comfort”. This Hasan defected to the enemy, to radical Muslims who declared war against us. Therefore he is an enemy combatant. To declare his attack “workplace violence” is an act of treason.
18 U.S. Code § 2381 - Treason
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
That confirms it for me. Just another absolute act of treason by this Islamic enemy agent posing as our President. It makes you wonder just what kind of deal he is making with Iran. The real villains in this besides Obama is Congress who refuse to do anything about him.
It’s a pay link.
It’s obvious that $h!tface hates the military and loves the bearded savages and will do nothing to annoy them.
It was workplace violence done against possible future returning vets who this administration would place on the terror watch list.
