Defense Department says giving Purple Heart to
Fort Hood survivors would hurt Hasan trial! Poor terrorist!
Not surprising considering it comes from the same dept.
that labeled the attack "work place violence."

Does this make any of the too many infamous seventy-four percent pissed, I mean those few of them who still have any sense? Major Hasan chose to be an enemy combatant and a traitor, who ought to be hanged or shot by a firing squad. This military punishment and sentence once was thought not to be odd.

Pentagon victims of the 9-11-01 terrorist attack did in fact get Purple Hearts:

Rep John Carter (R-TX) happens to be the US Representative from the district that includes Fort Hood. He introduced legislation in February to give the military and civilian victims of Fort Hood the same honor and status as those victims of 9/11. Carter said that the Fort Hood Families Benefits Protection Act:

“would award the military and civilian casualties of the 2009 Fort Hood attack the same status that was awarded to the casualties of the Pentagon attack on Sept. 11, 2001. All of the casualties would be eligible for the Purple Heart Award or the Department of Defense civilian equivalent.”

“After additional investigation into the potential implications of pre-trial publicity, I am postponing any future publicity on these bills at this stage of Maj. Hasan’s trial. However, the victims of this tragic shooting fully qualify for compensation pay and purple heart recognition.”

“The DOD position paper is dead wrong to oppose this legislation. These victims deserve recognition and compensation for the injuries and loss of life from a direct attack on a U.S. military installation.”
