Terrorism at Fort Hood
On November 5, 2009, Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan unleashed a vicious Islamic terrorist attack, when he climbed upon a table at Fort Hood, in the readiness assembly area; shouted “Allah Akbar”, and opened fire, killing 13 unarmed Army personnel.
After the shooting our president cautioned the American public not to jump to conclusions. Later he asked lawmakers to “resist the temptation to turn this tragic event into the political theater”. As if it would be possible to ignore the political, social and security implications of this brutal Islamist terrorist attack.
In his book, “Audacity of Hope”, Barack Obama wrote, “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction”. Can this be the reason our president now categorizes this terrorist attack as a “tragic event” and pleads with the public not to politicize the motives of the Muslims living within our borders? Is President Obama unwilling and unable to face the American people, because he fears we will realize his allegiance to his Muslim heritage?
Our president hides behind a cloak of Political Correctness; which allows him to spin barbaric Islamic terrorist attacks into “man made event” or “tragic event”. The rhetoric of the day changes what had commonly been described for years as a suicide bomber, into a more palatable, homicide bomber. As if anyone beside a Muslim anywhere in this world would strap a bomb on himself and go kill for the sake of jihad. In this kinder, less offensive rhetoric the word “terrorist” isn’t mentioned. By denying the very essence, the root cause, the obvious reality, we as the innocent, become we the naïve and encourage, invite more death, more destruction.
I will let the record speak for itself. After you examine the facts, you tell me at what point, when and where the premeditated murderous, vile, perverted, cruelly sadistic ideology of jihad terrorism turned into a “man made event”.
