Army Considering calling Fort Hood Shooting Terrorism

The United States Army plans to launch another review of the Fort Hood shooting to see if it was an act of “international terrorism. “  The result of that review could have a big impact on the victims who’ve been denied Purple Heart medals and the financial benefits that come with them.

Ft. Hood Shooter Is A 'Terrorist'In a letter dated Nov. 1 to South Carolina Congressman Joe Wilson, U.S.  Army Secretary John McHugh said, “the intelligence community considers Major Hasan to be a ‘homegrown violent extremist’ – a person who may engage in ideologically – motivated terrorist activities …”

Shawn Manning was shot six times by Maj. Nidal Hasan, the Army psychiatrist who’s been sentenced to death for gunning down 32 people and killing 13 at Fort Hood in 2009.

NBC 5 Investigates shared the letter with Manning who said, “it’s the closest that the Secretary of the Army, Department of Defense, has gotten to saying this is an act of terrorism.”
