The White House has its head where it doesn’t belong.
Saying the “war is here on U.S. soil,” a victim of the 2009 Fort Hood attack by Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan described the killing of four U.S. Marines in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on Thursday as “an act of terror.”
He said the threat won’t go away until it is eliminated.
Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford, who survived being shot seven times by Hasan, appeared Friday on Fox News’ “Your World,” and told host Charles Payne the White House needed to call this attack what it truly was.
“They need to get their heads out of the fourth point of contact and call it what it is,” Lunsford said of the Obama administration.
The “fourth point of contact” is Airborne military jargon for the derriere, which is a somewhat more polite way of telling Obama to get his head out of his **s.
“As long as they drag their feet, people die,” Lunsford said. “Now, we predicted this would happen years ago. It happened here in the United States and in England as well.”

But if we are really nice to them and don’t call them terrorists, they will simply quit killing us.
Sgt. Lunsford is certainly entitled to express his opinion. My own opinion is that being shot by a homicidal fanatic does not necessarily confer superior knowledge concerning how to guard against future attacks. He needs to get his head out of his ass is an expression of attitude, not a constructive suggestion. The same suggestion might be made to the FOX News program director.
@Greg: Perhaps being there and being in a position to take a clear shot might be influencing his opinion. How many lives could have been spared had this Islamic Terrorist been taken out shortly after he opened fire?
One thing is absolutely certain; whoever designated it “workplace violence” was a total and complete moron, weren’t they?
Workplace violence was one of a number of categories that the Ft. Hood killings fit.
It also then fits for Clementa Pinckney. Right, Greg?
Why is Hasan still alive and collecting military pay and benefits?
@Greg: No. Not at all. Not even close. About as close to “workplace violence” as the cause of Benghazi was to a video. All about political smoke and mirrors.
You seem to be having some difficulty understanding the phrase, “one of a number.”
Nidal Hasan’s crime fits more than one category. It was, in fact, a striking instance of workplace violence. He intentionally killed as many people as he could in the place where he and they worked together. The definition is met.
You act as if this somehow diminishes the fact that extremist ideology was part of his motivation. It does not. Does that automatically make it an act of terrorism? That’s debatable. The guy might be insane, which is another matter of definition. Either way, however, it’s still a case of workplace violence. Among other things.
Clementa Pinckney was also murdered in the place where he worked. He was not murdered by a coworker, however. His workplace was the setting where the crime occurred. I suppose it might be called workplace violence. Whatever you call it, it’s the same tragic event. It doesn’t disappear because of how it’s categorized.
I see that Greggie Goebbels is now trying to make any argument he can that the soldier who said Obama needs to get his head out of his ass somehow doesn’t have the right to say that.
Workplace violence, Greggie Goebbels? Really? So a radical Muslim puts SoA (Soldier of Allah) on his business card because he is unhappy with the food in the cafeteria or the brand of toilet tissue used in the restrooms? The Ford Hood shooter didn’t shout “I hate the Army”, Greggie Goebbels, he shouted “Allah u Akbar” the same thing shouted by the 19 9-11-2001 hijackers.
The Fort Hood shooter choose his place of violence for one reason; the same reason that any mass shooter chooses a location; they are target rich environments because of being gun “free”, so they are the only ones that have guns.
Under this president it is more dangerous for our military to be stateside than it is to be deployed to Afghanistan. But now, our military is being told to not wear their uniforms to the recruitment centers and when they get there, pull the blinds down. Yeah, that should deter the next radical Islamist that wants to kill American military personnel. Carter Ham is an idiot. I’m sure the two of you could relate really well to each other.
But you will make excuses for this Administration because that is what you do. Your purpose here is to simply be a Goebbels for the Obama administration. All you do is prove you’re an idiot.
The Charleston shootings can also be classified in more than one way.
Thing is, Obama still has his head up his ass.
