No, though it most certainly should be characterized differently. It wasn't "workplace violence", it was "a terrorist act".
While it did happen where he was stationed or "worked" it had little to do with his workplace and lots to do with his "faith". Anyone who thinks this workplace violence description is accurate then let's apply the same thing to the soldiers in Afghanistan when members of the Afghan military ambush and kill our troops.

See how that flies with everyone. No military benefits,no medals, no anything but workers comp.

Gotta love this new definition for workplace violence! As long as you're not wearing a turban or robes it's NOT terror.

Obama would not classify it as a terrorist attack because it would not fit into "Osama Bin Laden is dead and we live in a safer world".

Let's be real,real correct. No they haven't. Sorry to burst your bubble or cast aspersions on our fearless leadership but...

From Huffpo:
FORT WORTH, Texas -- Nearly three years after the Fort Hood shooting, a group of soldiers and their families is pressing the Department of Defense to make victims of the rampage eligible for the Purple Heart and other benefits.

About 160 people affected by the Nov. 5, 2009, shooting released a video this week describing the attack on the sprawling Texas Army post.

"The victims are being forgotten and it's frustrating," Kimberly Munley, one of the first two officers who arrived at the shooting scene, told The Associated Press.

While several government reports have described the rampage as an act of terrorism, soldiers and their relatives say the only way Fort Hood victims and their families will get the same benefits as troops killed or injured in combat is if the defense secretary specifically designates the shooting a "terrorist attack."

And, even more disturbing from 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.

Here's Hillary when she wanted to nail Nixon for his wrongdoings during Watergate.....fast forward 40 years later.....shouldn't she be paid the same courtesy for Benghazi???

Juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuust curious.....because the left is all about being "fair".....right? Remember I, like most Republicans, believed Nixon should have been tossed.....so I, like most Republicans and any commons sense Democrats, think Hillary should be tossed.....seems right....oh and on her watch, 4 got killed.....Watergate? A humorous scandal by comparison....

Hillary's new tag line......"I'm not a crook"

I get it.
If they were in fact a cover up...dont you think you should wait till the senate committee on Bhengazi wraps up first?

2ndly, the senate can sobpoena anyone they wish, if there are wistleblowers with information, the senate committee can do so and get their testamony...

stop believing crap on TV

I guess it was, before it wasn't? Or someone spoke before they should have...

They also tried to get the Obama administration to admit it was a terrorist attack during the election but Obama denied it they again said it was work place violence. He couldn't admit to a terrorist attack on his watch especially when he was campaigning that he killed Osama Bin Laden and Al-quaeda was on the run could we now.

are you freaking kidding me, your worried about a purple heart.

Additional benefits...additional is the key word.

And if you never had to deal with the DoD, then you dont have a clue how long things take...not a clue.
