Unreal: White House Classifies Fort Hood Terror Attack As “Workplace Violence”…

Weasel Zippers

How absurd is it? So absurd even über-RINO Susan Collins is slamming the Obama admin for failing to identify the threat as radical Islam.

(Fox News) — Sen. Susan Collins on Wednesday blasted the Defense Department for classifying the Fort Hood massacre as workplace violence and suggested political correctness is being placed above the security of the nation’s Armed Forces at home.

During a joint session of the Senate and House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, the Maine Republican referenced a letter from the Defense Department depicting the Fort Hood shootings as workplace violence. She criticized the Obama administration for failing to identify the threat as radical Islam.

Thirteen people were killed and dozens more wounded at Fort Hood in 2009, and the number of alleged plots targeting the military has grown significantly since then. Lawmakers said there have been 33 plots against the U.S. military since Sept. 11, 2001, and 70 percent of those threats have been since mid-2009.  Major Nidal Hasan, a former Army psychiatrist, who is being held for the attacks, allegedly was inspired by radical U.S.-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen in late September.

  2. IT’S JUST ANOTHER STEP THAT THE PRESENT DISADMINISTRATION IN THE WHITE HOUSE IS TAKING IN ORDER TO RE-WRITE THE DICTIONARY. IT ALSO HELPS THEM TO DEVELOP THIER OWN INTERPRETATION OF WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING.

    • Barry has been trying to re-write history since he became the new resident of the WhiteHouse. Remember when he said that Muslims played a part in discovering America? I don’t remember any Muslims on the Mayflower.

  3. I enjoy seeing these foolish blunders during campaign time.

    This is simply one more nail in Obama’s coffin as far as I’m concerned.

    The more people he alienates, the less chance of re-election.

    But then he can only win buy fraudulent means anyway.

    • He does have ACRON backing him as well as the unions. They will use scare tatics to help him but like everything else, he will lie about what he has said in the past and only true Liberals will believe him.
