No Purple Hearts for Ft. Hood

Because, you know, Nidal Hassan worked with Anwar al-Awlaki who advised him to attack the US on behalf of AQAP. The AQAP branch of al-Qaeda is at war with the US. They have attempted to attack us several times directly and by attempting to smuggle bombs on aircraft. During his Jihad Nidal Hassan shouted Allahu Ackbar as he attacked a US military installation.

All this ads up to workplace violence.

ABC via Yahoo:

The Department of Defense is making it clear: The military opposes awarding Purple Hearts to the victims of the Fort Hood shooting.
A Pentagon position paper, delivered to congressional staff on Friday and obtained by ABC News, says giving the award to the Fort Hood victims could "irrevocably alter the fundamental character of this time-honored decoration" and "undermine the prosecution of Major Nidal Hasan [the alleged Fort Hood shooter] by materially and directly compromising Major Hasan's ability to receive a fair trial."

The Department prepared the paper in response to legislation introduced by Rep. John Carter, (R.-Texas), the Congressman whose district includes Fort Hood. The Fort Hood Families Benefits Protection Act would award both military and civilian casualties of the Fort Hood attack combatant status.

You know there was a time where Nidal Hassan would have been hanged within a week of his little jihad and folks would have seen it as a good excuse for a picnic.

Those were the days.
