SILENCING FORT HOOD VICTIMS?
Wounded Soldier’s Wife Vows to Keep Speaking Out
By Harold Hutchison
Victims of the attack at Fort Hood are being gagged by the Department of Defense, according to the wife of one of those wounded. The claim comes as Nidal Hasan, who is accused of carrying out the attack, is being court-martialed.
“DOD slapping victims with gag orders after #fthood testimony. Can't talk denial of benefits and separating family of deceased from wounded,” Autumn Manning tweeted.
The Obama Administration has come under fire for its characterization of the attack as “workplace violence” as opposed to terrorism, which has resulted in the denial of a number of benefits for those wounded in combat.
