Obama finally defeated. And it took an act of Congress to make it happen. Hussein Obama’s denial of jihad in the wake of the Fort Hood massacre was traitorous. Strong-arming the Department of Defense to call Nidal Hasan’s slaughter of 14 soldiers and civilians “workplace violence” mocked their deaths.
It took over five years to right this horrible. Depraved wrong.
Wearing the garb of the shaheed and giving out qurans on the morning of his jihad, this devout Muslim slaughtered our soldiers in the mess hall of Fort Hood in Texas.

Army announces Fort Hood victims will receive Purple Heart By Lucas Tomlinson – Published February 06, 2015
Secretary of the Army John McHugh announced Friday that victims of the 2009 Fort Hood massacre will receive the Purple Heart, in an about-face for the military which initially described the attacks as “workplace violence.”
The decision to award the Purple Heart was first reported by Fox News.
In a written statement, McHugh cited a recent change in the law that allowed the Army to proceed with the medals.
“The Purple Heart’s strict eligibility criteria had prevented us from awarding it to victims of the horrific attack at Fort Hood,” McHugh said in a statement. “Now that Congress has changed the criteria, we believe there is sufficient reason to allow these men and women to be awarded and recognized” with either the Purple Heart or, for civilians, the Defense of Freedom medal.
“It’s an appropriate recognition of their service and sacrifice,” McHugh said.
Victims of the 2009 shooting and their families had been pressing the military to award the Purple Heart, and the benefits that come with it, for years.
They got a boost when Congress passed recent funding legislation requiring the Defense Department to reconsider whether the victims qualify for the honor. The Army statement on Friday said the legislation expanded the eligibility criteria by broadening what can be considered an attack by a foreign terrorist organization.
The Army determined the shooting could be considered an attack because the shooter “was in communication with the foreign terrorist organization before the attack.”
Earlier this year, a lawyer for victims of the shooting and their families told Fox News that some victims are still so damaged physically and mentally they are unable to work five years after the massacre — and the benefits that come with the Purple Heart would be a lifeline.
“No one will be the same,” attorney Neal Sher told Fox News last month.
Sher told Fox News in January there was stiff resistance to the new congressional language requiring a review of Purple Heart consideration. “The administration and the Pentagon,” Sher explained, “they lobbied hard against it. But we worked very hard and we were successful in garnering bi-partisan support for this.”
