D.O.D. Says No Purple Heart For Fort Hood Victims – Nidal Hasan Wasn’t A Terrorist

In 2009, radical Islamist Nidal Hasan screamed “Allahu Akbar” as he murdered 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. Afterwards, the military’s politically correct response almost defied belief. Rather than admitting that Nidal Hasan, who had exchanged more than 20 emails with Al-Qaeda recruiter Anwar al-Awlaki, was engaged in terrorism, the military labeled the attack “workplace violence.”

Nidal HasanNow, the government’s at it again.

The Department of Defense is fighting tooth and nail against giving Purple Hearts to the survivors of Nidal Hasan’s ambush because the DOD claims it would effectively mean that Hasan is being declared a terrorist.

A DOD position paper reads in part,

“Passage of this legislation could directly and indirectly influence potential court-martial panel members, witnesses, or the chain of command, all of whom exercise a critical role under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). Defense counsel will argue that Major Hasan cannot receive a fair trial because a branch of government has indirectly declared that Major Hasan is a terrorist — that he is criminally culpable.”

Neal Sher, who’s the lawyer for Ford Hood families involved in a suit against the DOD had this to say in response,

“This is a cynical travesty. What the government has done by making this statement is guarantee that anything done to help the victims will effectively prevent or impair Hasan’s prosecution. There was no reason for the government to put this kind of a statement in writing, even if it were true (which it is not).”

It’s sad to see that even our own military, which is the tip of the spear in the fight against terrorism, is so bowed by political correctness that it doesn’t want to honor the victims of terrorist attacks. Maybe the DOD should put the victims first instead of spending so much time trying to cater to the terrorist who attacked them.
