Legislation that would award the injured from the 2009 Fort Hood shooting the Purple Heart would adversely affect the trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan by labeling the attack terrorism, according to a Defense Department document obtained by Fox News.
The document comes following calls from survivors and their families for the military honor, because they say Fort Hood was turned into a battlefield when Hasan opened fire during the November 2009 attack. Fox News is told that the DOD “position paper” is being circulated specifically in response to the proposed legislation.

Department of Defense coddling people that want to kill every last American man woman and child, that would if they had the chance.
How can anyone believe our government isn’t treasonous?
Mr. Hasan was not screaming “Allah Akbar!” as he was was shooting.
He was actually screaming “I want a snack bar!”.
Clearly, he was not a terrorist, merely a soldier dissatisfied with the mess menu.
Now wouldn’t that be tough tittie for Hasan. He’s a terrorist and it’s a pity that he lived.
I’m surprised that the Defense Department doesn’t name a ship after Hasan. /sarc
The simple solution would be to wait until after the trial but man it’s been forever already.
So why are they waiting to have a trial?
Who gives a rat’s *ss about Hasan - award the purple heart.
The federal government is a terrorism-support organization.
It will fall.
using the Dept of Defense logic - Ft. Hood is than just a large business complex that than should be taxed. n So the State of Texas simply informs the DOD. By the way we see you as a business complex and you are behind in your taxes pay up ypur taxes, or as a State we will close you down and will take over the trial of Dr Hasan. Texas walks in takes hasan and hangs his dirty little ass on high. end of hasan and the FEds go beserk.
Every time I think there is no way this administration could possibly stoop any lower........it does!
OTOH, women in combat and homosexuals serving openly were "changes that were long overdue."
How can any parent recommend joining the military when the wussification like this goes on? How many years has it been and we still don’t have a trial and conviction?
Death by Diversity and inclusion. This is what happens when the ‘grievance merchants’ take it to the extreme..
Roll that wheelchair with Hassan in it out into the desert and leave it there for the buzzards. THAT would be justice. I am so freakin fed up with this kind of crap.
Where is the media? Where is the outrage?????
- Hasan Nidal was bullied as a child.....
- Hasan Nidal was a member of Obama’s Transition Team
In the first place the Hasan trial should already be over.
In fact his execution should already be over.
In the 2nd. place it was a terrorist act.
These people are entitled to a Purple Heart.
Any real President would have already seen to their getting it.
Is this the same DoD that awarded a medal to a guy who gave a POWERPOINT presentation on how to treat Muslim detainees?
There needs to be a mass Courts-Martial of a lot of military folks if they continue to pander to Islamic Terrorism via Major Hassan. Each one of them are giving aid and comfort to the enemy
Can you imagine....it was not too long ago that someone who committed such a treasonous crime would have been tenemried and executed by now.
Our military leadership is committing treason by helping the enemy
