Dear Friend of Liberty,
Barack Obama has just done something
truly disgraceful! He's declared the 2009 Fort Hood massacre — where a
radical Islamic terrorist killed 13 American soldiers and wounded 29
more — "work place violence," not a terrorist attack.
This means that these men and women
are denied the military medals they are due — like the Purple Heart —
for their deaths or injuries during the attack by a radicalized Muslim
combatant. The way I see it, these soldiers put their lives and their
bodies in harm's way in defense of our freedom. But instead of
recognizing them as heroes, Obama is treating them like they are civil
service employees who just happened to be in the way when a random
Once again, Obama has failed to
recognize that radical Islamic terrorists have declared war on this
nation and our armed forces — our first line of defense against their
monstrous actions. That's why the Freedom Center has launched a
nationwide petition campaign demanding that the Fort Hood massacre be
categorized as what it was — a terrorist attack — and that medals be
awarded to those who suffered in battle that day.
Our goal is to collect 1 million
signatures, so we need your help. Will you follow this link right now to
sign the Purple Hearts for Fort Hood Heroes Petition?
My blood boils at the outrage of
refusing to honor the men and women who suffered at the hands of an
enemy of the United States. When the American naval base at Pearl Harbor
was attacked by an enemy of our nation, 78 medals were awarded —
including 16 Medals of Honor. After September 11, 2001, the military had
to create a new award to recognize all of the heroism of the day. There
is absolutely nothing different about the murderous attack at Fort Hood
than at Pearl Harbor, the Pentagon, the World Trade Centers or the field
in Pennsylvania — or IEDs blowing up our brave troops in Afghanistan!
The attacker, Nidal Malik Hasan, was
an enemy combatant by every definition. He was also an Army Major who
had given every indication to his superiors that he wasn't to be trusted
and worse, that he'd grown hostile and was plotting against America and
our troops. On November 5, 2009, Hasan did what he had told anyone who
would listen he was going to do: launch an assault on the men and women
of Ft. Hood Army Base in Kileen, Texas. He killed 13 people and wounded
The only difference between Nidal
Malik Hasan and the 9/11 hijackers was the weapon he had available. If
Hasan had had a bigger gun, a dirty bomb, you name it, he would have
gladly used it that harrowing day. Yet the Obama Administration and the
Pentagon still refuse to call this a battle zone! Why? Because Obama has
bent over backwards to politically protect Muslims — even those sworn to
destroy our nation. That's why we so urgently need your help right this

We both know this wasn't "work place
violence," nor was it the action of a man angry with his co-workers.
This was a premeditated act of aggression against United States'
servicemen and women by a man who Army officials confirmed plotted with
known anti-American radicals here and in the Middle East. Not honoring
these men and women for their actions that day is a horrible outrage — a
disrespectful spit in the face of the 42 people whose blood was spilled
by a man who openly admitted his hatred against our nation and a
shameful slap down of the families — the husbands, wives, fathers,
mothers and children of the dead and wounded.
I know the radical left hates our
military, but this? How much pain can they inflict on the troops'
legacies, onto the hearts' of the survivors and the families of these
men and women? Enough is enough! Please join with me today and help the
Freedom Center get 1,000,000 Americans to sign the Purple Hearts for
Fort Hood Heroes Petition and demand Obama, Defense Secretary Leon
Paneta, the Secretary of the Army, and all 535 members of Congress
redress this deplorable action.
Thank you in advance for your support.
