The Obama administration has sought to save health care funds by downgrading the shootings of Ft. Hood as “workplace violence”.
Though Obama saw fit to kill Maj. Nidal Hasan’s alleged instigator, Anwar al-Awlaki, and his underage son by a drone attack, calling them terrorists, he oddly would not treat the veterans who were killed or wounded in the attack as is customary in the military. Many of them were forced to leave the military as a result of their injuries, but they do not have the usual benefits and medical coverage that would be accorded to wounded veterans.
Some are having to find private physicians to treat their ongoing injuries. Sgt. Kimberly Munley, who was shot three times while confronting Hasan, has been laid off. Her partner Sgt. Mark Todd is the one credited with the five shots which stopped Hasan’s rampage.
Munley is the veteran who was used for an Obama photo-0p, sitting next to Michelle Obama, at the 2010 state of the union address. She now feels betrayed, and let down after Obama’s promise that the victims would be well taken care of.
A lawsuit is in the works against the military, as is a movie about the Ft. Hood shooting. You can learn more about this group which is among the thousands of Obama photo-op “victims” who were promised administrative ‘love’ and federal aid, and were subsequently abandoned. CLICK HERE!
