Video: Fort Hood Massacre Hero Says Obama Betrayed Victims

February 12, 2013  | 

VIDEO: Fort Hood Massacre Aftermath

The former police sergeant who helped stop the Fort Hood massacre in 2009 tells ABC News that President Obama has betrayed the victims of the attack.

Kim Munley, who was laid off from the civilian force that patrols the base, was shot three times when she and her partner Sgt. Mark Todd confronted Major Nidal Hasan on Nov. 5, 2009. Hasan is now awaiting a military trial for allegedly killing 13 and wounding 29 soldiers awaiting deployment to Afghanistan. Witnesses said Hasan yelled "Allahu Akbar" as he opened fire.

Munley and other victims say the attack should be classified as a terrorist attack rather than "workplace violence."

Evidence has shown that Hasan was in communication with al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki prior to the attack. Al-Awlaki has since been killed in a drone attack in Yemen.

ABC will air dramatic new footage from the attack tonight on "World News with Diane Sawyer" and "Nightline." The footage shows the aftermath of the attack and soldiers tending to victims.

Obama and his obedient military officials have covered up the fact that this was clearly a "Jihad" (Islamic Holy War) attack. The Jihadist was in contact with various terrorist organizations and had numerous statements before the attack that should have had him arrested. The Ft. Hood attack was only one of many Jihad attacks in the USA and against US-based military, but the administration is deliberately covering up and lying about the Jihad aspect. This attack, like many others, was a "Holy War" attack and it is outrageous that the administration is forcing military officials to lie and try to pass this off as a "workplace incident."

Haven't you all noticed... obama has betrayed the United States of America, the U.S. Constitution and every citizen of this nation. Remember your Oath people, Protect and defend against all threats foreign and domestic, Defend the Constitution and the Citizens of this Nation. Thank you Munley and Todd for protecting those in harms way. It's sad you lost your job over this issue... It was a terrorist attack plain and simple. To quote another wake up call: "Remember, remember the 5th of November, the gun powder, the treason, the plot. I see no reason to ever forget the gun powder, treason, and plot."

Do you really think he is going to classify this as a terrorist act?????!!!!!!! It took Obama weeks to acknowledge that the Benghazi incident was a terrorist incident and they had mortars and RPG's. This guy will never admit one of his fellow muslims as a terrorist. In fact, when the story first broke and he was giving a press conference, he was bombarded with questions about this man's jihad and how he was screaming arabic. His response "Let's not jump to conclusions." We have a sympathizer for a president and we're stuck with him for the next four years. Anyone else would call it an act of terror but for "political reasons" he won't. In effect, with evidence that he was in communication with Al Quieda, a terrorist was able to gain access to a military installation, arm himself, and hold the position of a commissioned officer and psychiatrist. I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for the change.

There is a good reason why we don't just jump to conclusions. There too many hot heads out there who would try to take the law into their own hands because of their uneducated assumptions. Look at some of the preious bombings where lives were lost. That was thought to be a terrorist attack until the offender was apprehended. Hummmmm. Stop finding empty faults and let the professionals do their jobs.

Unfortunately neither Munley nor the rest of you opining about about Obama and conspiracy theories fail to realize one simple fact. The decision how to classify the attack is not legally Obama's (at least at this stage). The decision how to classify the attack goes through multiple channels, none of which include Obama! I didn't hear Munley castigating Ft. Hood officials or for that matter, the CFR under which she was hired etc...She should first make a minimal effort to under federal law and administrative regulations. Lastly, why doesn't she wait until the trial and then throw stones if the decision doesn't go her way. I'm not fan of Obama's but Munley is out in left field on this. The real issue is that she wants compensation which by the way, the military victims won't entitled to, unlike her. This has less to do with Obama than her getting paid via disability or a terrorism claims case on federal property.

The fact remains she was a civilian working on federal property and she DID get injured by a terrorist...this is ALL FACT! ...we also know it is being classified incorrectly to get out of having to is despicable the things our govt does to get out of it’s responsibilities, whether it is Obama or just high ranking officials doing it is irrelevant.

Robert @ 2/14/2013 6:00 AM

Obama has betrayed the United States of America since he took office. What's new? I can't believe people in America were so stupid to reelect him. I guess free money for all the hand me outs works!!!
