Soldier tries to revive a fallen comrade - ABC News

Ft. Hood tore down the building where Nidal Hasan, an ex-Army officer and psychiatrist killed 14 and wounded 30 in 2009 while shouting “Allahu Akbar”.  Nidal used an FN Five Seven pistol to gun down unarmed soldiers in the former Soldier Readiness Processing Center.  Hasan fired 214 rounds and at least two soldiers and one civilian charged Hasan to disarm him.  All three were shot.  Two of them were killed.  Officer Kimberly Munley encountered Hasan first outside the facility as Hasan chased the fleeing soldiers and exchanged fire.  Hasan shot her twice.  Officer Mark Todd then arrived and hit Hasan five times.  Almost four years later Hasan was convicted in a court martial and sentenced to death.  

The Army is planning to erect a memorial at the site.

Why tear down the building?

So there is less reason to discuss the multitude of ways Ft. Hood was botched.

-Officers didn’t write the evaluation Hasan earned because they were afraid of the PC climate.
-The FBI didn’t properly investigate or let the Army know an Army officer was in contact with a terrorist.
-Less reason to discuss contrary to popular belief why military bases are some of the largest gun free zones in the US.
-The President sent out a “shout out” before making his initial announcement about this tragic incident of “workplace violence”.
-The administration and Army insist on not calling this a terrorist event so as not to influence the LONG awaited trial and then AFTER the trial still can’t call someone shouting “Allahu Akbhar” while gunning down soldiers because they are soldier, a terrorist.
-End discussion over why the Army didn’t get the victim’s opinions on what to do with the site even though they said they did.
-Not discuss why NO ONE was fired or relieved over any of the above mistakes or what’s been done to avoid a repeat.

    Shouting “Allahu Akbar” while gunning down unarmed US soldiers makes this a terrorist attack. Maybe it is being taken down to avoid humiliation, or from a PR angle or to maintain a more PC attitude towards minorities like muslims. This in no way was an incident of Workplace violence.

    The guy blatantly admitting to carrying out a terror attack and the usual radical Islamic bullshit in his interrogations. The legal shitstorm had the military admitted to this being a terror attack would have been catastrophic : “How the hell were you guys allowing a radical Islamic terrorist to work in your military base as a Psychiatrist !?”

    Chapter 113B of the Code, entitled “Terrorism”:18 U.S.C. § 2331

    “Domestic terrorism” means activities with the following three characteristics:Involve acts dangerous to human life that violate federal or state law;Appear intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination. or kidnapping; andOccur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the U.S.
    18 U.S.C. § 2332b defines the term “federal crime of terrorism” as an offense that:Is calculated to influence or affect the conduct of government by intimidation or coercion, or to retaliate against government conduct; andIs a violation of one of several listed statutes, including § 930(c) (relating to killing or attempted killing during an attack on a federal facility with a dangerous weapon); and § 1114 (relating to killing or attempted killing of officers and employees of the U.S.).
    * FISA defines “international terrorism” in a nearly identical way, replacing “primarily” outside the U.S. with “totally” outside the U.S. 50 U.S.C. § 1801(c).
