Final presidential debate: Unanswered questions
Fort Hood Terror Attack Will Not Be Reclassifed As Such
As I reported on Friday: Push On - Declare Ft. Hood Massacre What It Was - A Terrorist Attack, it seems now the Pentagon has come out today and said that to declare the attack by Major Nidal Hasan on November 9, 2009 that killed 13 and wounded 32 a terrorist attack rather than an act of domestic violence in the workplace would cause "prejudice" in the court-martial proceeding now underway.
What planet is Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and the Administration of President Barack Obama living on?
A clear act carried out in the name of "jihad" and the government doesn't want to prejudice the jury against this terrorist, Nidal Hasan?
Is this the latest example of how this Administration is intent on trying to sweep the "War on Terror" under the rug so as not to excite or incite to violence the fanatics who are intent on our total destruction?
The news coming out today is quite interesting considering that the last Presidential Debate is scheduled to begin within the next couple of hours and be focused not only on foreign policy, but national security. This is clearly an example where the national security was threatened by a man that had served within our own military for 20 years before turning his guns on his fellow soldiers in an act of solidarity with the jihadists and fanatics who want nothing less than see the death of the Great Satan, the US of A.
Does this tell us how the President will continue to treat issues of national security over the next 4 years?
From the Cornfield, I am appalled that the voices of the 160 victims of the Fort Hood massacre who spoke out on Friday went unheeded and unheard by Panetta and the Defense Department and the Obama Administration.
There is no excuse.
