Adding Fort Hood Terrorist Attack to 911, Call for Fort Hood Memorial

"Our military service members represent only one percent of our population, but they shoulder the responsibility of protecting our entire Nation."  -- Not Forgotten - Restore Warriors Project: HRI: H-II OPSEC

The November 2009 rampage at Fort Hood, is one of the worst mass shootings in US history.  In his opening statement, US army officer, psychiatrist, Nidal Hasan M.D, referred to himself as a Mujahideen, and he was fighting to create a perfect religion on earth.  --  Hasan admits to Fort Hood shooting: Al Jazeera, 6 August 2013.

Congress has labeled the Fort Hood attack an act of terrorism. In the wake of the attack, an independent report commissioned by the FBI looked at ways to improve counterterrorism measures. Even the president said the attack was inspired by “larger notions of violent jihad.” -- Terrorism at Fort Hood: The News Tribune, 9 August 2013.

Terrorist Salary Paid During Pre-Trial Period

Across America, the outrage concerning the salary paid to the perpetrator of the Fort Hood terrorist attack has prompted a call for full recovery:

Hasan, the Army psychiatrist charged with multiple counts of premeditated murder and attempted premeditated murder in one of the worst mass shootings on a military base, has received paychecks totaling nearly $300,000 while locked up, waiting for testimony that begins Tuesday at Fort Hood. -- Suspected gunman in Fort Hood shooting continues to receive a salary:  Star Telegram, 4 August 2013.

The first full week of the accused Fort Hood shooter's court martial is coming to a close, and a memorial to honor those who were killed in the massacre is getting closer to becoming a reality... Kuehl says that the committee still needs over $200,000 in funding before construction on the memorial can start. -- Funds Needed For Fort Hood Shooting Memorial: News 25, 8 August 2013.
