The liberal-run Department of Defense is adamant: no Purple Hearts will be awarded to those wounded in “Soldier of Allah” Nidal Hasan’s terror attack on Fort Hood. Here’s why:
A Pentagon position paper, delivered to congressional staff on Friday and obtained by ABC News, says giving the award to the Fort Hood victims could “irrevocably alter the fundamental character of this time-honored decoration” and “undermine the prosecution of Major Nidal Hasan [the alleged Fort Hood shooter] by materially and directly compromising Major Hasan’s ability to receive a fair trial.”
It’s all about priorities.
Due to the soldiers at the base having been disarmed, Hasan managed to kill 14 Americans and wound 32 others. As if indulging in black humor, the Obama Regime absurdly instructed us to regard the incident — during which Hasan screamed “Allahu Akhbar” — as random “workplace violence.” Political apparatchik General George Casey Jr., serving as Army Chief of Staff, declared of the bloody assault that had been made possible by political correctness pushed to the point of insanity:
“[I]t would be a shame if our diversity became a casualty…”
America’s enemies control the command structure. This doesn’t do much to enhance the morale of those stopping bullets to defend Western Civilization from Islam.
