In July 2010 ListVerse published a list of the top ten traitors in U.S. history with details about each traitor, see below. I don't necessarily agree with all their choices, but the subject is interesting to discuss. Number three on their list is Nidal Malik Hasan, the Fort Hood terrorist. Hasan killed 13, plus one unborn baby, and wounded 32 others while he shouted "Allahu Akhbar" as he opened fire and had exchanged e-mails with Anwar al-Awlaki before the attack. Barack Obama's administration labeled the attack as 'workplace violence' rather than an act of terror.
As the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) reports, the Fort Hood families have not received full benefits for being wounded as part of their military service and those who survived have not receive Purple Hearts and medical benefits normally extended to people wounded in action. There is now a call from some members of Congress for this to be re-classified as an act of terror.
... House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul and Virginia Rep. Frank Wolf call that "inexcusable," ABC News reported. "It is time for the administration to recognize the Fort Hood shooting for what it is—an act of terrorism. To date, the Department of Defense and the Army classify this attack [as] 'workplace violence,' despite mountains of evidence [that] clearly proves the Ft. Hood shooting was an act of terror." (IPT)
