The Federal Government is urging everyone not to blame Islam for the recent massacre at Texas Fort Hood Army base by a radical islamic crazed psychiatrist who shouted “Alahu Akbar” as he slaughtered 13 and wounded 29. Finally, a Senator is going to call this like he sees it: A Terrorist Attack.
From the Wall St. Journal here:
A senior U.S. senator on Sunday said the shootings at Fort Hood could have been a terrorist attack, and that he would launch a congressional investigation into whether the U.S. military could have prevented it.
Sen. Joe Lieberman, an independent from Connecticut who heads the Senate’s Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, said initial evidence suggested that the alleged shooter, Army Major Nidal Hasan, was a “self-radicalized, home-grown terrorist” who had turned to Islamic extremism while under personal stress.
Mr. Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, had opened fire Thursday at a soldier processing center at Fort Hood, Tex., killing 13 and wounding 29 in the worst mass shooting on a military facility in the U.S.
I don’t need a Congressional inquiry to call it like it is. This was a terrorist attack.
