Ten Years After Fort Hood Massacre
On November 5, 2009, at Fort Hood, Texas, Major Nidal Hasan, a self-proclaimed "soldier of Allah," gunned down 13 unarmed American soldiers, including Pvt. Francheska Velez, who was pregnant. Yelling the familiar "Allahu akbar," Hasan chased down the wounded and shot them in the back. The major would have killed many more if police officer Kim Munley had not fired on the shooter. For the more than 30 the Muslim major wounded, the troubles were only beginning.
Ten years after 11/5, President Trump has good reason to
bring the Fort Hood survivors to the White House and let them speak their
minds. If they call for President Trump to carry out Hasan's execution it would
be hard to blame them, but this is hardly the only unfinished business on Ford
