Oops!… Obama Calls Fort Hood: “Violent Jihad” not “Workplace Violence” During Drone Speech (Video)
Oops. Unforced error.
Obama finally referred to the Fort Hood massacre today as “violent jihad” not “workplace violence.”
“Deranged or alienated individuals often US citizens or legal residents can do enormous damage. Particularly when inspired by larger notions of violent jihad. That pull towards extremism tends to have led to the shooting at Fort Hood and the bombing of the Boston Marathon.”
Hat Tip Crystal
Victims and family members of the Fort Hood shooting sued the government last year for negligence. They claim the Defense Department is avoiding legal and financial responsibility for the killings by referring to the shootings as “workplace violence” rather than as a terrorist attack.
