DOD’s Final Report Classifies Fort Hood Jihad As “workplace violence”

DoD’s final report classifies Fort Hood jihad as “workplace violence”

Offensive jihad in the name of Islam against the U.S. military – perpetrated by a Muslim member of the military – who preached jihad – is now being referred to by the Department of Defense as “workplace violence.”.... News Article: Pentagon Releases Final Fort Hood Shooting Review.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 20, 2010 – Pentagon officials today released the Defense Department’s final review of recommendations issued by an independent panel in the wake of the Nov. 5, 2009, shooting spree on Fort Hood, Texas.
Among the department’s top priorities, as outlined in the review, are boosting on-base emergency response capabilities, improving law enforcement and force protection information sharing with partner agencies, and integrating force protection policy, a Defense Department news release said.
In a memorandum signed Aug. 18, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said he carefully considered the panel’s recommendations — detailed in the report titled, “Protecting the Force: Lessons Learned from Fort Hood” — and is directing the department to take “appropriate action” to address the initiatives detailed in the follow-on review.
“I expect department leaders to place great priority on implementing these recommendations,” Gates said. All actions are aimed at contributing to the safety and health of military forces, the release said.
Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, allegedly opened fire at a Fort Hood facility where soldiers were processing for overseas deployments. He has been charged with 13 counts of murder and 32 counts of attempted murder.
“The tragic shooting of U.S. military personnel at Fort Hood … underscored the need for the [Defense Department] to thoroughly review its approach to force protection and to broaden its force protection policies, programs and procedures to go beyond their traditional focus on hostile external threats,” Gates said…
The review puts forth “concrete actions” for the majority of the recommendations, Gates said. In some cases, however, further study will be required before the department can take additional steps.
In particular, he said, the department will strengthen its policies, programs and procedures in the following areas:

– Educating commanders about the symptoms of potential workplace violence and the tools available to them to address it;

After a cursory review, responding to future acts of jihad (although DoD won’t call it that) seems to be a significant focus of the recommendations. One would think preventing infiltration of the U.S. military by jihadists and stealth jihadists would be the focus rather than responding to future attacks.


Wild Thing's comment.......

This makes me so angry. If this keeps up, America as we know and love it will be dead within 20 years.

“...allegedly opened fire ...”

“allegedly” - isn't that a damnable lie??

Let me get this right. An attack on a a US military base by a Muslim terrorist is workplace violence? So by extension of this logic, when our finest are deployed in Afghanistan and attacked... that's also workplace violence. After all, the military "works" around the world.

And why is the Pentagon protecting a Muslim who opened fire on the military? Do they think we’re all just going to go, “All right then, no jihad, nothing to worry about”? Why can’t the Pentagon call it what it is? How can the Pentagon defend us if the Pentagon can’t even identify the enemy? Because the Pentagon is following the orders of the Commander In Chief. Protecting Muslims at the expense of our troops!!!!

This is an insult to the families of the dead at Ft Hood, and the dead from the 911 Atrocities, and the dead on
the battlefields that protected America.

Imam Obama and the DoD clearly wants more. Wants more of this for America.

From Imam Obama's Audacity of Hope:
"I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

Damn! And 9/11 was two aircraft that just happened to crash into the twin towers and the Pentagon got in the way of a third plane.

We are in a war. Not a generic war but a war with islam.

America needs a real leader. Someone like John Bolton who will call it as it is. We need to clean out DC of the riff raff that has accumulated in the last x years.

The DOD is responding in a typical CYA mode.

They certainly don't any blame to fall on them, for not identifying, this A-Hole for what he was. In spite of the fact that immediately after 9-11-01, all Government agencies were put on alert to recognize individuals such as Maj. Hasan. Hell his name alone, should have been worth some in depth probes.

Oh, My Bad. That would be "profiling", and we certainly can't have that, can we. Might hurt his feelings.

At one time the Military was looked upon as being tough and strong. Now it looks as though they have become, just another political entity.

Then again. What else can we expect, as long as we have Barry Sotero as CIC. Actually that should be CSIC.

Good point Sean, up to about Lt. Colonel they are still aware of what is really going on. I think once you get to the Flag ranks, i.e., Colonel and up, there is a different attitude. This is where the PC crap comes in. These Offiers seem to want to prosecute their own for bogus War crimes than take out the enemy.

The evidence is there, Hassan clearly had ties with "radical' Imams and other radical nitwits in the middle east. Other officers noticed it and were ignored once it got up the chain.

This attitude answers alot of questions. Like why we are not considering bombing Iran to help out the Israeli's or even give them some moral support and encouragement. No they let Barry hide under his desk, then send Hillary over there to tell Netanyahu, 'you dasn't do that, other wise it will really make Barry cross'. They have not only turned us back into the Paper Tiger we have leaders without any Cajones. That starts at the top.

In that light everything make sense. ROE's just for starters

Tom, good point, yes they "just happened to crash into the twin towers and the Pentagon"....this is so all insane.
There is a factor missing imo with all of this and that is that no one is their own man. NO one in any kind of power is saying enough is enough of this PC stuff it is killing our troops, our country and our freedom. PC has become the duct tape on leaderships brain to not want to make waves at the expense of lives. It has gone so far beyond reality.

Willy, it sure is, thanks for your input.

Sean, well said!!! That is exactly what has happened. The weakness of obama and his hate for our powerful military has meant he will make it so they have to hold back ( bad bad bad thing to do) and he enforces his PC on it to the max weakening it more. Not to call the enemy out on what it is, relabeling this terrorist actions as work place violence is out of control PC and at obama's orders too. sheesh
