Man..I love me some Barry...he's the best barry ever. U libs really did a great job for America electing this wonderful man. I hope he gets a stocking full of dogshit for Christmas. Angry


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.
 




April 9, 2010: FILE - This file photo provided by the Bell County Sheriff's Department shows U.S. Major Nidal Hasan at the Bell County Jail in Belton, Texas. Hasan was charged in the Fort Hood shooting rampage.

 


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. The two men exchanged as many as 20 emails, according to U.S. officials, and Awlaki declared Hasan a hero.
 
The chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, Connecticut independent Sen. Joe Lieberman, said the military has become a "direct target of violent Islamist extremism" within the United States.
 
"The stark reality is that the American service member is increasingly in the terrorists' scope and not just overseas in a traditional war setting," Lieberman told Fox News before the start of Wednesday's hearing.
 
In June, two men allegedly plotted to attack a Seattle, Wash., military installation using guns and grenades. In July, Army Pvt. Naser Abdo was accused of planning a second attack on Fort Hood. And in November, New York police arrested Jose Pimentel, who alleged sought to kill service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.
 
Both Pimentel and Abdo also allegedly drew inspiration from al-Awlaki and the online jihadist magazine Inspire, which includes a spread on how to "Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom."
 
Rep. Peter King of New York, the Republican chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said military service members are "symbols of America's power, symbols of America's might."
 
"And if they (military personnel) can be killed, then that is a great propaganda victory for al Qaeda," King told Fox News.
 
King said there is also evidence that extremists have joined the services.
 
"There is a serious threat within the military from people who have enlisted who are radical jihadists," King said. "The Defense Department is very concerned about them. They feel they're a threat to the military both for what they can do within the military itself and also because of the weapons skills they acquire while they're in the military."
 
The witnesses testifying before the joint session include Paul N. Stockton, assistant secretary of defense for homeland defense; Jim Stuteville, U.S. Army senior adviser for counterintelligence operations and liaison to the FBI; Lt. Col. Reid L. Sawyer, director of the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point, and Darius Long, whose son, Army Pvt. William Andrew Long, was shot and killed at an Arkansas military recruitment center in 2009.
 
A second private was also injured in the Arkansas attack. Both victims had just finished basic training and had not been deployed. They were outside the Arkansas recruitment center when the shooter opened fire from a passing truck. The shooter, Carlos Bledsoe, pleaded guilty to the crime earlier this year.
 
In a letter to the court, Bledsoe said he carried out the attack on behalf of al Qaeda in Yemen -- the group that was behind the last two major plots targeting the U.S. airline industry.
 
"My faith in government is diminished. It invents euphemisms ... Little Rock is a drive by and Fort Hood is just workplace violence. The truth is denied," Long testified.
 
King said the web is the driver of the new digital jihad.
 
"It enables people -- rather than having to travel to Afghanistan to learn about jihad or to be trained, they can do it right over the Internet," he said. "And this is a growing role."
 
And while Awlaki and his colleague Samir Khan, who was behind the magazine Inspire, were killed in a CIA-led operation in September, King warned against overconfidence that al Qaeda in Yemen was done.
 
"This is a definite short-term victory for us. There's no doubt they are going to regroup, that there will be others who will be providing Internet data, inspiration to jihadists in this country, instructions on how to make bombs," he said.
 
While King was heavily criticized, in some quarters, for launching his hearings 10 months ago on homegrown terrorism, the congressman said the joint session shows the threat is legitimate, and recognized as such by other members of Congress.
 
"To me it's a validation of what I've been trying to do all year," King emphasized. "There's a definite threat from Islamic radicalization in various parts of our society, including within the military, and we can't allow political correctness to keep us from exposing this threat for what it is."

Obama loves prostrating himself and taking it up the ass from his Arab oil overlords. Heaven forbid we criticize Islam.  Roll Eyes

Obama declares Fort Hood a 'work accident,' denies dead soldiers' purple hearts

Echoing a Defense Department determination that called the Fort Hood massacre 'workplace violence,' President Obama has denied purple hearts to the soldiers who were murdered there by an Islamic terrorist. I received the following email from the David Horowitz Freedom Center.
Dear DHFC Supporter,

Barack Obama has just done something truly disgraceful! He's declared the 2009 Fort Hood massacre - where a radical Islamic terrorist killed 13 American soldiers and wounded 29 more - "work place violence," not a terrorist attack.

This means that these men and women are denied the military medals they are due - like the Purple Heart - for their deaths or injuries during the attack by a radicalized Muslim combatant. The way I see it, these soldiers put their lives and their bodies in harm's way in defense of our freedom. But instead of recognizing them as heroes, Obama is treating them like they are civil service employees who just happened to be in the way when a random accident occurred!

Once again, Obama has failed to recognize that radical Islamic terrorists have declared war on this nation and our armed forces - our first line of defense against their monstrous actions. That's why your Freedom Center has launched a nationwide petition campaign demanding that the Fort Hood massacre be categorized as what it was - a terrorist attack - and that medals be awarded to those who suffered in battle that day.

Our goal is to collect 1 million signatures, but to do so we must raise $250,000 to distribute the petition across the country. Will you help us by following this link right now to sign the Purple Hearts for Fort Hood Heroes Petition? After adding your name to the petition, please make the most generous, tax-deductible contribution you can afford to the Freedom Center.

My blood boils at the outrage of refusing to honor the men and women who suffered at the hands of an enemy of the United States. When the American naval base at Pearl Harbor was attacked by an enemy of our nation, 78 medals were awarded - including 16 Medals of Honor. After September 11, 2001, the military had to create a new award to recognize all of the heroism of the day. There is absolutely nothing different about the murderous attack at Fort Hood than at Pearl Harbor, the Pentagon, the World Trade Centers or the field in Pennsylvania - or IEDs blowing up our brave troops in Afghanistan!

The attacker, Nidal Malik Hasan, was an enemy combatant by every definition. He was also an Army Major who had given every indication to his superiors that he wasn't to be trusted and worse, that he'd grown hostile and was plotting against America and our troops. On November 5, 2009, Hasan did what he had told anyone who would listen he was going to do: launch an assault on the men and women of Ft. Hood Army Base in Kileen, Texas. He killed 13 people and wounded 29 more.

The only difference between Nidal Malik Hasan and the 9/11 hijackers was the weapon he had available. If Hasan had had a bigger gun, a dirty bomb, you name it, he would have gladly used it that harrowing day. Yet the Obama Administration and the Pentagon still reuse to call this a battle zone! Why? Because Obama has bent over backwards to politically protect Muslims - even those sworn to destroy our nation. That's why we so urgently need your help right this wrong.

Please follow this link [There's no link in the email either. CiJ] right now to sign the Purple Hearts for Fort Hood Heroes Petition and make a generous donation to support this mission.

We both know this wasn't "work place violence," nor was it the action of a man angry with his co-workers. This was a premeditated act of aggression against United States' servicemen and women by a man who Army officials confirmed plotted with known anti-American radicals here and in the Middle East. Not honoring these men and women for their actions that day is a horrible outrage - a disrespectful spit in the face of the 42 people whose blood was spilled by a man who openly admitted his hatred against our nation and a shameful slap down of the families - the husbands, wives, fathers, mothers and children of the dead and wounded.

I know the radical left hates our military, but this? How much pain can they inflict on the troops' legacies, onto the hearts' of the survivors and the families of these men and women? Enough is enough! Please join with me today and help the Freedom Center get 1,000,000 Americans to sign the Purple Hearts for Fort Hood Heroes Petition and demand Obama, Defense Secretary Leon Paneta, the Secretary of the Army, and all 535 members of Congress redress this deplorable action.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Sincerely,

David Horowitz
President & Founder

P.S. How far will this administration go to protect Muslims - even those who murder Americans? Then-Army Chief of Staff General George Casey said: "As horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that's worse." An American General would rather see his troops murdered than risk threatening the politically correct icon of diversity? Please sign the Purple Hearts for Fort Hood Heroes Petition and help the Freedom Center right this wrong today.
