Russ Vaughn poses this apt question at The American Thinker, concerning the ongoing “trial at Fort Hood, Texas of the terrorist killer, Nidal Hasan, an Army doctor, who, while proclaiming his allegiance to Allah, gunned down 43 American soldiers and/or their family members, killing fourteen,” which according to the Obama Administration “constitutes workplace violence rather than the Islamic terrorism it truly was” — thus depriving the victims and their survivors of federal benefits accorded victims of terrorism. Here’s the gist of his analysis:
[A]s the trial begins, Nidal Hasan, legally representing himself at the proceedings at Fort Hood, describes himself as a mujahedeen, a soldier, admitting that he was, in fact, the shooter. He clearly believes himself to be a soldier in Allah’s vanguard and his murderous actions as the religiously justifiable slaughter of the enemies of Islam.

In the increasingly Alice in Wonderland world that the Obama administration has become, we are faced with the reality of federal law enforcement being unwilling to accept the at-trial self-characterization of a Muslim terrorist that he is, in fact, exactly that: a Muslim terrorist, eagerly killing Americans in an overt and deliberate act of war. Hasan is the happy warrior, readily confessing to the sacred motives of his murderous massacre. But according to our federal justice department and our commander-in-chief, it’s “Nope, what the hell does he know? It was nothing more than an act of workplace violence.”
. . . [I]t has no longer become a question of just how stupid the Obama administration thinks the American people are and how much of their politically correct BS they can make us swallow. Rather, the question has become:
“Just how stupid is the Obama administration?”
