3 ½ Years Later Ft. Hood Terrorist Still Collecting Full Salary

“The Department of Defense confirms to NBC 5 Investigates that accused Fort Hood shooter Major Nidal Hasan has now been paid more than $278,000 since the Nov. 5, 2009 shooting that left 13 dead and 32 injured. The Army said under the Military Code of Justice, Hasan’s salary cannot be suspended unless he is proven guilty.
If Hasan had been a civilian defense department employee, NBC 5 Investigates has learned, the Army could have suspended his pay after just seven days.
Personnel rules for most civilian government workers allow for ‘indefinite suspensions’ in cases ‘when the agency has reasonable cause to believe that the employee has committed a crime for which a sentence of imprisonment may be imposed.’
Meanwhile, more than three years later soldiers wounded in the mass shooting are fighting to receive the same pay and medical benefits given to those wounded in combat….”
For starters, the number of those dead are 14 not 13 as the media always claims.  One of the soldier’s killed by Hasan was pregnant, 14 dead!
If Barack Obama would have called the Ft. Hood terrorist attack by its name, an Islamic terrorist attack or simply, a terrorist attack, Hasan would not be collecting a salary still and the soldiers wounded in the terrorist attack would have received a purple heart and qualified to receive pay and medical benefits given to those wounded in combat.
This is backwards, shameful, an injustice and a mockery.  I blame Obama.
