“Workplace violence” is what the US government is calling the cold blooded murder of 13 soldiers at Fort Hood by Major Nidal Hasan. A confirmed Islamist who has renounced his US citizenship, repudiated his Army oath to the Constitution and calls himself a “Soldier of Allah”.
This is not workplace violence. This is premeditated murder and an act of terrorism. And it should be treated as such. 13 US soldiers lost their lives to this Islamic terrorist and 32 others were wounded in an attempt to murder them.
Hasan has called Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed in 2011 by a drone strike, a teacher, mentor and a friend. You are the company you keep. And if al-Awlaki was these things to Hasan, it is only rightly to define Hasan as a terrorist.
Since Hasan has renounced his US Citizenship and has turned his back on the oath he took as a US solider. Then by all means he should be treated as such. An enemy combatant without rights other than those imposed by the Geneva Convention. Ship him to Gitmo and forget about him. Or better yet, execute him for his crimes against the United States and the murder of 13 servicemen.
