Texas Lawmakers Ready for Fight to Overturn Fort Hood 'Workplace Violence' Label
Texas lawmakers return from Veterans Day memorials on a mission for those hurt in the 2009 massacre at Fort Hood: making sure that those who serve our country get due recognition and benefits as victims of a domestic terror attack.
Infamously classified as "workplace violence" by the Obama administration, former Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan killed 13 and wounded 32 in what he described as an act of jihad against soldiers going through processing before shipping out to Afghanistan.
But the continued refusal of the administration to acknowledge the attack as an act of terrorism has left the Fort Hood survivors shortchanged on honors and benefits, something that could change in a big bipartisan way with a bit of momentum this month.
