Autumn Manning, wife of Fort Hood survivor Army Staff Sgt. Shawn Manning, is claiming that the U.S. Department of Defense is “slapping victims with gag orders” and telling family members not to talk to the press following testimony in the trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan.
This prevents survivors from talking about “denial of benefits,” which is still happening after the Obama administration decided to classify the shooting as “workplace violence.” Because of the designation, Fort Hood survivors have been denied combat-related benefits.
Manning later clarified that the DOD’s gag order only applied to witnesses, though she also claims family members were told not to talk to the press.
It will be hard for the Islamophile in Chief to spin this horrific terror attack as run of the mill workplace violence if low-information voters get wind of the self-described “soldier of Allah” Nidal Hasan spouting rhetoric like this in the courtroom:
“The evidence will clearly show that I am the shooter, and the dead bodies will show that war is an ugly thing. … We, the mujahedeen, are imperfect Muslims trying to establish a perfect religion in the land of the supreme God.”
By now maggots should have long since nibbled the last gristle from Hasan’s bones in the cold darkness of his grave. The only trials at this point should be for conspiring with the enemy on the part of any officials playing along with Obama’s absurd “workplace violence” gambit.
