Obama has repeatedly lied about terrorist attacks in the US under his watch.
Victims of the 2009 shooting at Fort Hood in Texas that killed 13 people and wounded dozens more are outraged that the U.S. government refuses to classify it as an act of terrorism.
About 160 victims and their families released a video on Thursday describing the shooting — in which Army Maj. Nidal Hasan allegedly opened fire on a room full of soldiers — and arguing why it should be classified as a terrorist attack.
Hasan, an American-born Muslim, is accused of killing 12 soldiers and a civilian on Nov. 5, 2009, at the post’s processing center. Soldiers were preparing to deploy to Afghanistan and Iraq.
The U.S. Department of Defense has ruled the Nov. 5, 2009, shooting a case of workplace violence.
In “The Truth About Fort Hood,” victims express their frustration at the government’s designation, Stars and Stripes reports.
They noted that Hasan consulted by email with top al-Qaida leader Anwar al-Awlaki about whether an attack against American soldiers was justified to “protect our brothers,” according to Stars and Stripes.
Awlaki, who was based in Yemen, was considered a top enemy by the US. He was killed in an airstrike last year.
Report: Fort Hood Victims Want Shooting Classified as Terrorist Attack

It is nearly impossible to have spotless record with respect to terrorism when there are a couple billion people that have sworn to destroy you. Remember the attack on the Marine barracks in Lebanon? That was on Reagan’s watch. Let’s hope President Romney does better, but would not bet the ranch that his record will be perfect with respect to terrorist attacks.
The problem is that Obama is lying about it for selfish political purposes, and as a result things get worse. Reagan immediately acknowledged what happened in Lebanon and pulled US troops out.
The Beirut Marine base bombing was in 1983, and we had no 9/11’s for perspective, totally different story. We should have learned a lesson about placing forces in harms way without proper firepower. And then there is this…
“… we now know that the Marines in Cairo were not allowed to carry live ammunition, per the orders of US Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson. He directs us to this Nightwatch blog post which reports:
She did not permit US Marine guards to carry live ammunition, according to USMC blogs. Thus she neutralized any US military capability that was dedicated to preserve her life and protect the US Embassy.
In this respect, she did not defend US sovereign territory and betrayed her oath of office. She neutered the Marines posted to defend the embassy, trusting the Egyptians over the Marines.”
This workplace violence designation will change in Jan/13, count on it.
He also lies about the real war on women, which is being perpetrated by his cohorts in the Muslim Brotherhoodies…
“(TheBlaze/AP) — A correspondent for France 24 TV was “savagely attacked” near Cairo’s Tahrir Square after being seized by a crowd, the network said Saturday. It was just the latest case of violence against women at the epicenter of Egypt’s restive protests.
The news channel said in a statement that Sonia Dridi was attacked around 10:30 p.m. Friday after a live broadcast on a protest at the square and was later rescued by a colleague and other witnesses. France 24 did not give further details about the attack, but it said its employees were safe and sound, though “extremely shocked,” and that it will file suit against unspecified assailants….
At the height of the uprising against Mubarak, Lara Logan, a correspondent for U.S. network CBS, was sexually assaulted and beaten in Tahrir Square. She said later that she believed she was going to die. After being rescued, Logan returned to the United States and was treated in a hospital for four days.
The square has seen a rise in attacks against women since protesters returned this summer for new rallies, including incidents of attackers stripping women – both fellow demonstrators and journalists – of their clothes.
No official numbers exist for attacks on women in the square because police do not go near the area and women rarely file official reports on such incidents, but activists and protesters have reported a marked increase in assaults against women.
Amnesty International said in a report in June that such attacks appeared designed to intimidate women and prevent them from fully participating in public life. The London-based human rights group has called on Egyptian authorities to investigate reports of sexual assault against women to counter the impression that no one will be punished.”
Yeah, the Republicans really hate women. That’s why they oppose the Muslim Brotherhoodies.
They don’t need terrorist attacks to take over Europe and the US. Having more babies does the trick. All these ‘attacks’ are diversionary maneuvers so we don’t see the real thing.You could call it Muslim’s Nature Trick.
