Benghazi survivors aren’t the only ones getting muzzled by the Obama Regime:
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.
Turning a terror attack into a national disgrace.
The Obama administration tends to take a “see no evil, hear no evil” approach to the problem of Islamic radicalism and terrorism.
In November 2009, when Maj. Nidal Hasan murdered 13 people and wounded dozens of others in a Fort Hood shooting spree, while repeatedly shouting “Allahu akbar,” most Americans realized at once that the faithful follower of the extremist imam Anwar al-Awlaki (the spiritual leader of a number of the 9/11 hijackers) was a radical Muslim. But not Barack Obama – whose administration misleadingly mislabeled the assault “workplace violence,” thereby depriving the victims of benefits commensurate with combat injuries.
On September 11, 2012, when al Qaeda terrorists stormed the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, killing Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, the Obama administration covered for the Islamic terrorists by blaming the incident on spontaneous reactions to a rudimentary Internet video critical of Islam. This false claim was repeated by both Ambassador Rice and Secretary Clinton in multiple public statements.
Family Security Matters
The Judge refused to submit to Islamic law so ….. he’s off the case. He wasn’t impartial enough. Got that?
On November 5, 2009, Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at a troop readiness center in Ft. Hood, Texas, killing 13 people. Within hours of the killings, the world knew that Hasan reportedly shouted “Allahu Akbar!” before he began shooting, visited websites associated with Islamist violence, wrote Internet postings justifying Muslim suicide bombings, considered U.S. forces his enemy, opposed American involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan as wars on Islam, and told a neighbor shortly before the shootings that he was going “to do good work for God.” There was ample evidence, in other words, that the Ft. Hood attack was an act of Islamist violence.
Nevertheless, public officials, journalists, and commentators were quick to caution that the public should not “jump to conclusions” about Hasan’s motive. CNN, in particular, became a forum for repeated warnings that the subject should be discussed with particular care.
