The Ft. Hood massacre was an Act of Terror

    1. Petition by

      National Review

The Fort Hood massacre was an act of war carried out by a violent jihadist who had infiltrated our Armed Forces while taking advice and encouragement from Anwar al-Awlaki, who was so clearly an al Qaeda commander that President Obama authorized his wartime killing by a drone strike. We are a nation at war based on a congressional authorization of military force enacted after al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 Americans in the atrocities of September 11, 2001. If the war is to be waged seriously, the government must recognize that the Fort Hood massacre – in which twice as many Americans were killed as were killed in the jihadist bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993 – was an act of terrorism committed by the enemy. We must honor the sacrifice of those killed and wounded at Fort Hood by acknowledging its true context.

      This is ridiculous. Fort Hood victims should have every benefit awarded to them. The guy who did it was a terrorist no doubt about it...even if the administration doesn't want to admit it.

      It's important to FULLY recognize the efforts and sacrifices by our armed forces personnel. The tragedy that occurred at Fort Hood was and should be officially declared as nothing short of a "terrorist attack". Do the right thing, Congress...or we will remove you and vote someone else in who will.
