Fort Hood jihadi blasts Obama: It wasn't "workplace violence," "I was defending Taliban" in attack
This would be comical if it weren't so monstrous. Jihadis yelling at Obama, "it's jihad, stupid!" Imagine, this is the President of the United States eleven years after 911, with his head planted firmly in his favorite place. Quite deliberately, I assure you.
The victims of the Fort Hood jihadi deserve benefits and combat honors. Obama is a disgrace and a traitor.
Fort Hood shooter blasts Obama admin story
'I was defending Taliban' in attack Washington called 'workplace violence'
For years, the Obama administration has maintained that the victims of the 2009 shooting at Fort Hood, for which Islamist Maj. Hidal Hasan is charged, simply were in the crosshairs of a situation of “workplace violence.”
The victims – 13 people were killed and nearly another three dozen were injured when, according to witnesses, Hasan shouted “Allahu Akbar” and started firing at people – have been denied benefits and combat honors because the government insisted there was no link to terror.
Now, however, the defendant himself is taking that off the table.
As part of his defense, he has demanded to represent himself in his still-unscheduled trial, and this week asked for a delay of several months so that he could prepare his defense which will be built on the idea he did the shootings “in defense of others.”
When asked by the judge, Col. Tara Osborn, to identify those he was “protecting,” Hasan said, “The leadership of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the Taliban” and its leader, Mullah Omar.
Hasan, an Army psychiatrist at Fort Hood, is accused of walking into the Soldier Readiness Center on the base Nov. 5, 2009, and opening fire on his fellow soldiers.
The attack didn’t stop until Hasan himself was shot and paralyzed.
A survivor reported Hasan shouted “Allahu Akbar,” or “Allah is greatest,” a phrase commonly uttered by jihadists prior to carrying out an attack. The Fort Hood attack was the worst shooting on an American military base.
Hasan had been on federal officials’ radar screen for at least six months prior to the shooting over postings he made on the Internet. He likened a suicide bomber who kills women and children to a soldier who throws himself on a grenade to give his life in a “noble cause.”
Intelligence officials also intercepted at least 18 emails between Hasan and the radical American-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. Hasan told al-Awlaki in one of the emails, “I can’t wait to join you” in paradise. He also asked al-Awlaki whether it was appropriate to kill innocents in a suicide attack, when jihad was acceptable and how to transfer funds without attracting government notice.
In spite of this, Attorney General Eric Holder declined to press terrorism charges against Hasan. Instead the government has labeled the shooting as a case of “workplace violence.” During a memorial service for the victims, President Obama never once used the word terrorism.
The designation has prevented survivors and the victim’s families from receiving Purple Hearts and being able to obtain combat-related special compensation.

The good news is that a new president gets elected on November 8, 2016 in 'just' 1250 days.

Of course the jihadist murders at Fort Hood is a lot more then just "workplace violence." It was as act of Islamic terrorisn Obama and his gang refuse to call thing as they really are . They need to get with reality. For Hasan yelled out all the while he was engaging in the heinous actions of mass murder "Allahu Akbar." He was and is a jihadist. His religion inspired and dove to commit those cruel vicious and murderous act of of violence. For example, in the Quran in Sura 47:4 it teaches "Whenever you encounter the unbelievers, strike off their heads until you make a great slaughter among them..." A firearm can make a greater "slaughter among them" then sword can.
Some "peaceful religion" ! Therefore, Hasan is guilty of murder. Likewise, his religion,Islam, which inspired and drove him to commit those burtal heartless and evil actions is also guilty of murder.
