There is a movie on TV based on the killing of Osama bin Laden. They make Obama to be a great leader lol. The doctor that helped locate Bin Laden, the guy sitting in prison and tortured because he helped us was not even acknowledged and the movie presented it as if Obama made a decision in the dark and great Obama made the decision.

Just another Obama puff piece.

Then again, isn't all the left wing about putting out Obama puff pieces. For some reason Americans don't believe they are being fed propaganda, as if our politicians are too good for that sort of thing. It's as if they believe Americans are smarter than the German people.

The Obama cult will defend Obama no matter the evidence of his lying and despicable economy. No matter how little he has done for them. Watch them here on cd. Now if they would only work as hard at a job.

Which, of course, is the largest echo chamber in the news/entertainment industry, which by numbers becomes 'most'.

And a sad film maker who had nothing to do with Benghazi remains in jail for... Benghazi

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.
You have DoD workers, military personel, and civilians. Do you want a unform benefits package for all? How does that work? Would civilians recieve the Purple Heart? Should soldiers be allowed hire civilian lawyers and sue Ft. Hood for dangerous work place conditions?

What is it you want?

The National Counterterrorism Center's 2009 Report on Terrorism called the Fort Hood shooting a "high fatality terrorist attack.

Fort Hood Shooting Victims Seek Added Benefits, Soldiers Press Department of Defense

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".
Its meaningless. Obama has made his decission, when you elect the next president, he can retroactively give all the surviors all the benefits and all medals, and all parades till your heart's content.

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.
You of course are once again correct, yeppers I'm clueless and all I'm concerned about is their purple heart medal. Good thing I'm not delusional though.
Some of the victims "had to find civilian doctors to get proper medical treatment"
It seems just as you make out that what these people are asking for is just a small insignificant thing and the DOD takes it's time. Well it looks like the DOD made at least one decision.


An Army review board initially classified Manning's injuries as "combat related," but that finding was later overruled by higher-ups in the Army.

Manning says the "workplace violence" designation has cost him almost $70,000 in benefits that would have been available if his injuries were classified as "combat related."

"Survivors of the incident at Fort Hood are eligible for the same medical benefits as all servicemembers," said Little. "The Department of Defense is also committed to the integrity of the ongoing court martial proceedings of Major Nidal Hasan and for that reason will not at this time further characterize the incident."

Secretary of the Army John McHugh told ABC News he was unaware of any specific complaints from the Fort Hood victims, even though he is a named defendant in the lawsuit filed last November which specifically details the plight of many of them.

And:

Staff Sgt. Shawn Manning, who was shot six times that day, said his injuries prevented him from continuing to serve. But he wonít receive the same benefits as those severely wounded on the battlefield because an Army medical evaluation board didnít deem his injuries to be combat-related, he said.

So yes, I guess you're right again.

OK. Then it stands to reason that Boston is over? So all talk of gun grabbing should stop.

It is easily as stupid as when CIA Director Tenet claimed they used "out of date tourist maps" when they bombed the Chinese embassy in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, on May 7, 1999.

Of course it's not just about lives lost. It's about an administration that repeatedly lied to the American people. That continued the lies until they were caught. That held nobody accountable for those lives lost. That continues to stonewall the investigation. That threatens those that want to tell the truth.

It's about a government that is corrupt. And the facts of their involvement needs to be known.

They are talking about benefits to victims of terrorism. But this administration will not call it that.

Liberals disgust me. Their hatred of the military, and defense of baby-killing abortion doctors is vile.
