Obama has yet to formally declare the Benghazi Attack a terrorist act. You heard right. After all of the brouhaha and the double talk he is still avoiding putting the label of Terrorist Attack on the night that four Americans including Ambassador Christopher Stevens were murdered by Al Qaeda.
Not only this, but he has yet to label the attack in 2009 at Fort Hood a Terrorist Attack. Today, the families and victims took action:
“Survivors of the Fort Hood massacre released a new video this week calling on the government to classify the November 2009 shooting as a terrorist attack rather than “workplace violence,” a change that would make them eligible for specific combat-related benefits.
In the video, uploaded on YouTube Wednesday, witnesses to the shooting, some of whom were wounded in the attack, voiced their frustration with the government’s labeling of the attack in which 13 people died and 32 others were wounded in a shooting rampage allegedly carried out by a fellow soldier, Maj. Nidal Hasan. The FBI said Hasan had corresponded with a high-profile al Qaeda recruiter and discussed the merits of jihad months before the massacre.
“Looking at the red tape you’ve got to get through, we put the video together to try to raise awareness,” one of the victims, Army Staff Sgt. Alonza Lunsford, told ABC News.
In the video, police officer Kimberly Munley, who was shot multiple times, says, “It was discovered, has been discovered, re-discovered that this was part of a terrorist activity.”
“[The Fort Hood victims] were killed and wounded by a domestic enemy — somebody who was there that day to kill soldiers, to prevent them from deploying,” another victim, Army Staff Sgt. Shawn Manning says in the video. Manning was shot in the chest. “If that’s not an act of war or an act of terrorism, I don’t know what is.”
The Coalition of Fort Hood Heroes, the organization that released the video, said in a statement that unless the government labels the attack terrorism, victims and their families will be “denied the recognition and benefits they are rightfully due,” in particular eligibility for the Purple Heart Medal, along with which comes veterans’ medical benefits and higher priority for veterans’ disability compensation.”
I am convinced that it is at the behest of President Obama that the Fort Hood Massacre remains a case of “Workplace violence”
Even though Nidal Hasan screamed “Allahu Akbar!” before he began shooting, Obama still could not admit it was radical Islam. At the time of the shooting he said, “we should not rush to judgment.” Yet that same week a black college professor was mistakenly arrested because it appeared to neighbors he was breaking into the house. Obama’s reaction to that before he had any facts was, “the police behaved stupidly.”In the psychology of Obama there is no radical Islam. He simply cannot bring himself to confess the existence of a worldwide force of hatred and evil against the United States.
Whenever terror comes Obama must deny it. He must first blame America, a video, or anything that buys him time to deflect criticism of Islam. Even after he had proof that Al Qaeda had killed Americans in Benghazi, he stood in the well of the United Nations and said that “those that denigrate the prophet of Islam should have no future.” Yet, he has no such outrage when the National Endowment of the Arts pays for an art exhibit of a Crucifix in a jar of urine.
Why are we surprised? He wrote “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” This quote comes from age 261 of the paperback edition of The Audacity of Hope.
To Obama there is no war on terror because there is no radical Islam. Again and again, he has shown his true loyalties and priorities. One of the tenets of Islam teaches, “lie when it advances the cause of Islam.” Indeed, he is following this to the letter.
Even now, he cannot admit that he lied to us all about Benghazi. To this day, he will pivot, deflect and obfuscate whenever it pertains to radical Islam. This is how he justifies the avalanche of misery he has allowed on the American public. This is how he can cast aside the failure upon failure of his administration. He lives in his own dangerous world. Think of the damage he has done so far and think of what America will look like in four more years if he is still in office tearing us apart?
