Defense Department Classifies Forth Hood Massacre as ‘Workplace Violence’

And, I guess, a tornado is just a wind storm.

Yup, more obfuscation of Islam’s role in promoting jihad from the Obama administration:

Lawmakers Blast Administration For Calling Fort Hood Massacre ‘Workplace Violence’

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. 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.


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.”


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.”


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.”

  1. It seems to me that we need to do the following:

    1 Get rid of liberal politically correct crapzola when it comes to Americas inner security.

    2 Recognize that islam is a Theocratic threat that needs to be addressed by EVERY politician and to start making laws to protect our guv and lives from it.

    3 Recognize that there are FEW moslems who are trying to turn islam into a liberalized religion but thier ideas are mostly useless because of how the quran and other islamic documentation are written.

    4 Deal soley with those moslems that embrase jihadi / mujahedeen doctrines and leave other moslems alone as long as they live according to the Laws of the USA. That way we can try to avoid creating new jihadis.

    5 Molsems who wish to live according to islams doctrines should do so in places that support thier needs. This means they should move to Saudi and other countries that are supposedly islamic. That way they can avoid ‘us’ ‘shaitanic’ persons who dont beleive in thier malarky of a religion / theocratic system.

    Translation = How can you call this workplace violence when all of us here in congress created the rules that have institutionalized jihad? The institutional jihad extends well beyond Army psychiatrists and into every nook and crannies of all of our loonstitutions.

    C’mon Susan, show some pride in what you have helped create!

    It wouldn’t be prudent to indefinitely detain the jihadist psychiatrist.
