Fort Hood Massacre, A Terrorist Attack?
It has been said that Nidal Malik Hasan shouted "Allah Hu Akbar!" before he started his shooting rampage that eventually killed 13 people and wounded 31. If he did indeed say that, why isn't this being referred to as a terror attack? Is it because our illustrious president doesn't have the courage to call a spade a spade? Is it because the perpetrator isn't affiliated with Al Qaeda, Hamas, or any other terror organization? Or is it, I fear, that we are so cowed by political correctness that wer're deathly afraid to call the bloodshed at Fort Hood what it really is; a terrorist attack? It would seem the armed forces of the United States should look a little closer into the backgrounds of their officers, especially their Moslem officers. But oh wait, I forgot that's profiling! We can't do that because of the P.C. Gestapo!
