Victims of Nidal Hasan's rampage at Ft. Hood are praising Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) and two central Texas Republican Congressmen, John Carter and Roger Williams, for introducing the 'Honoring the Ft. Hood Heroes Act' which would declare that those who were shot in November of 2009 were 'casualties of war in the face of an armed enemy,' and were not victims of 'workplace violence' as the Pentagon has claimed, 1200 WOAI news reports.

Hood attack was terrorism, and that the Islamic extremist Nidal Hasan is a traitor to the United States, are especially welcome and long overdue," said Reed Rubinstein, who is an attorney for the men and women who were wounded at the families of those who were killed.
