Obama declares Fort Hood a 'work accident,' denies dead soldiers' purple hearts

Echoing a Defense Department determination that called the Fort Hood massacre 'workplace violence,' President Obama has denied purple hearts to the soldiers who were murdered there by an Islamic terrorist. I received the following email from the David Horowitz Freedom Center.
Dear DHFC Supporter,

Barack Obama has just done something truly disgraceful! He's declared the 2009 Fort Hood massacre - where a radical Islamic terrorist killed 13 American soldiers and wounded 29 more - "work place violence," not a terrorist attack.

This means that these men and women are denied the military medals they are due - like the Purple Heart - for their deaths or injuries during the attack by a radicalized Muslim combatant. The way I see it, these soldiers put their lives and their bodies in harm's way in defense of our freedom. But instead of recognizing them as heroes, Obama is treating them like they are civil service employees who just happened to be in the way when a random accident occurred!

Once again, Obama has failed to recognize that radical Islamic terrorists have declared war on this nation and our armed forces - our first line of defense against their monstrous actions. That's why your Freedom Center has launched a nationwide petition campaign demanding that the Fort Hood massacre be categorized as what it was - a terrorist attack - and that medals be awarded to those who suffered in battle that day.

Our goal is to collect 1 million signatures, but to do so we must raise $250,000 to distribute the petition across the country. Will you help us by following this link right now to sign the Purple Hearts for Fort Hood Heroes Petition? After adding your name to the petition, please make the most generous, tax-deductible contribution you can afford to the Freedom Center.

My blood boils at the outrage of refusing to honor the men and women who suffered at the hands of an enemy of the United States. When the American naval base at Pearl Harbor was attacked by an enemy of our nation, 78 medals were awarded - including 16 Medals of Honor. After September 11, 2001, the military had to create a new award to recognize all of the heroism of the day. There is absolutely nothing different about the murderous attack at Fort Hood than at Pearl Harbor, the Pentagon, the World Trade Centers or the field in Pennsylvania - or IEDs blowing up our brave troops in Afghanistan!

The attacker, Nidal Malik Hasan, was an enemy combatant by every definition. He was also an Army Major who had given every indication to his superiors that he wasn't to be trusted and worse, that he'd grown hostile and was plotting against America and our troops. On November 5, 2009, Hasan did what he had told anyone who would listen he was going to do: launch an assault on the men and women of Ft. Hood Army Base in Kileen, Texas. He killed 13 people and wounded 29 more.

The only difference between Nidal Malik Hasan and the 9/11 hijackers was the weapon he had available. If Hasan had had a bigger gun, a dirty bomb, you name it, he would have gladly used it that harrowing day. Yet the Obama Administration and the Pentagon still reuse to call this a battle zone! Why? Because Obama has bent over backwards to politically protect Muslims - even those sworn to destroy our nation. That's why we so urgently need your help right this wrong.

Please follow this link [There's no link in the email either. CiJ] right now to sign the Purple Hearts for Fort Hood Heroes Petition and make a generous donation to support this mission.

We both know this wasn't "work place violence," nor was it the action of a man angry with his co-workers. This was a premeditated act of aggression against United States' servicemen and women by a man who Army officials confirmed plotted with known anti-American radicals here and in the Middle East. Not honoring these men and women for their actions that day is a horrible outrage - a disrespectful spit in the face of the 42 people whose blood was spilled by a man who openly admitted his hatred against our nation and a shameful slap down of the families - the husbands, wives, fathers, mothers and children of the dead and wounded.

I know the radical left hates our military, but this? How much pain can they inflict on the troops' legacies, onto the hearts' of the survivors and the families of these men and women? Enough is enough! Please join with me today and help the Freedom Center get 1,000,000 Americans to sign the Purple Hearts for Fort Hood Heroes Petition and demand Obama, Defense Secretary Leon Paneta, the Secretary of the Army, and all 535 members of Congress redress this deplorable action.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Sincerely,

David Horowitz
President & Founder

P.S. How far will this administration go to protect Muslims - even those who murder Americans? Then-Army Chief of Staff General George Casey said: "As horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that's worse." An American General would rather see his troops murdered than risk threatening the politically correct icon of diversity? Please sign the Purple Hearts for Fort Hood Heroes Petition and help the Freedom Center right this wrong today.
And what does this have to do with Israel? Those who refuse to properly identify the enemy cannot defeat it. And since Israel is fighting the same Islamic terror enemy that the US is fighting, Obama's refusal to properly identify the enemy includes a claim that it's not Israel's enemy either.

Well, they have to do this. They want the peaceniks to hit the streets. More chaos. More undermining. And, as has become clear during this last decade, the primary driver for the anti-war protests re Southeast Asia were to do with our spoiled boomer hippie generation objecting to the draft. The current force, by contrast, is a bunch of stellar kids who Volunteer. So what is Obama to do to undermine Americans' solid support for the military? Get the parents' thinking that, by supporting their kids' enlistment, they are turning them over to this guy and his cronies, who consider dead people in random places as just part of how things go. Just another tool to amass power. (See: al Shabaab in Kenya).

Obama is acting like our dead kids in Ft. Hood are a benefit to his worldview. Vote these people out and get out into your communities to do it, even if you've never done politics before. Notice that it is David Horowitz who is calling them out. He knows all about the deatheating Marcuse Marxists, because he was right in the middle of their start up (as was I). They have to be voted out while we still can.

OBAMA, THE REAL ENEMY!

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.

He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.

A murderer is less to fear”
-Marcus Tullius Cicero 42 BC

So let me get this right after 20 years Military, specializing in Small Arms Training and the use of including Law Enforcement.

It was an equipment malfunction, the weapon had a mind of its own.

YA' THAT'S IT!

Who did this fella have known contact with who was killed by a drone under the the watchful eye of the Obama Administration, CIA, OSI and the FBI?!

WHO IS THE REAL ENEMY HERE!

“No foreign power or combination of foreign powers could by force take a drink from the Ohio or make a track on the Blue Ridge in a trial of a thousand years. At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us it must spring up from among us, it cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen we must live through all time or die of suicide.”
-Abraham Lincoln

Obama and the Military
Do not believe what Barack Hussein Obama says, or what he reads from the teleprompter, when it comes to his true beliefs of the military, look at his actions. Obama says he cares about the military. Can you say hypocrite or phony? Obama wasn’t going to pay the troops if there was a Government shutdown; instead, he was going to use the military as pawns or a shield for political reasons. On 4/7/2011, he signed a memo stating if there was a Government shutdown the troops would have their payments delayed, contrary to what was allowed in the past by other Presidents. Obama floated the idea that military personnel wounded in battle should have their private medical insurance pay for their medical bills. The Obama Regime prosecuted the Navy Seals for a bogus claim of abuse by a terrorist/jihadist.
Then it was learned during Memorial Day Weekend, 2011 that Obama and his Regime want to cut military spending, including pay and health benefits to the soldiers, because he wants to be fiscally responsible. Of course he does, how else do you think he is going to get the billions to give to the Muslim Brotherhood and the Egyptian Nazis? Now, he is using the threat of military cuts against the Super-Committee. There shouldn't even be a Super-committee, because it may be unconstitutional. The Super-committee combines the House and the Senate and I do not believe they can do that without amending the Constitution.
More phony OPTICS. At the White House, Obama announced that Retired Army General Stanley McChrystal will join the First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden to lead a program in support of military families dubbed “Joining Forces.” He has Michelle Obama and Jill Biden doing commercials about the American people supporting our troops. Let’s see, Obama has cut funding for the military in the past, but now he is launching a national initiative supporting military families.
Let's not forget Bill O'Reilly's Super-bowl (Super-dud) interview with Obama when O’Reilly asks him, "What's the worst part of the job?" Obama said the worst part of the job is he has to wear a jacket on Super Bowl Sunday and being in the bubble, with eyes constantly on him, where he is not able to have a spontaneous conversation with someone. A pathetic and pitiful response. I would think it would be writing a letter of condolence to the family of a fallen soldier or sending soldiers in harms way. Then again, what do you expect from a coming from a narcissistic elitist Community Agitator? This man is DESPICABLE.
After the death of Osama Bin Laden Obama gave a speech from the teleprompter and said, “These efforts weigh on me every time I, as Commander-in-Chief, have to sign a letter to a family that has lost a loved one, or look into the eyes of a service member who’s been gravely wounded." Of course he read that; after all, Obama is running for reelection. Obama’s wining, spontaneous statement shows his true feelings about the military.
Our soldiers should be paid on time and soldiers who served in the military should have the best medical care provided to them as a benefit for serving and protecting this great country. Thanks to everyone who served and is serving in our military.

This guy is a enemy combatant in US Military uniform and should be treated as such!
