Finally, some good news.
After the Obama Administration refused to give the families of those who perished at Fort Hood Purple Hearts because they considered it an act of workplace violence, they have now done an about face.
Secretary of the Army John McHugh has now announced that the Obama Administration will go along with the new law which the previous Congress passed in December that allows military personnel to be eligible for Purple Heart designation if they are killed or wounded in an attack carried out on U.S. soil by someone affiliated with a foreign terrorist organization. With the Purple Hearts, these families will also receive benefits.
This was long, long overdue. But better late than never.
Even if President Obama never says the Fort Hood shootings were an attack of terrorism, the dissemination of the Purple Hearts confirms what almost of all us knew the moment we learned that Nidal Malik Hasan shouted "Allahu Akbar!!!" as he killed 12 soldiers, a civilian and an unborn child more than five years ago.
