    I cannot find where the MSM denied that the attack at Fort Hood was terrorism. The poster here
    says that it happened. Maybe we have differing definitions of what the MSM is? Can anyone here show me where the MSM said the Ft. Hood attack was definitely not terrorism?

    If PoliticalChic said it, she's probably right. All I know is that the Obama Administration's official position is that it was an act “of violence.” No mention of terrorism, even though it's obvious to everyone else that it was.

    The Obama admin didn't make a rush to judgement? How odd. How very odd. I guess thay are waiting until all the facts are in. Shame on them. Shame on them.

    I have no idea. I usually wait until an investigation has been wrapped up before putting my foot in my mouth. Initial news reports, widely circulated eyewitness accounts, and web site screeds against, or for a particular individual or group, are usually proven to be premature in condemnations and judgements.

    I believe one of the main reasons the good doctor was held in his position was that the army is in dire need of good doctors. I also believe the FBI and other agencies are territorial in nature and loathe sharing info. Bureaucracies are famous for messing things up. That said, I am still awaiting official reports of what exactly happened and didn't happen before I put my foot in my mouth.

    I asked her that in the thread and she ignored me.

    The media didn't label...they merely reported what was known. For once I think they all got it right...big surprise.

    Obama admitted he did not have all the facts then, and that was a personal fault, not an administration policy one. There is a difference there. A difference wide enough to drive the hypocrisy of a conservative through.

    I don't know what is right yet. I do know all the facts are not in yet. I believe the definition of the term terrorism can lead people to differing conclusions, but conclusions based on preliminary facts are usually the root cause of hoof and mouth disease on the internet.
