    Acknowledging Maj. Hasan’s alleged shooting spree as a major terrorism attack on the homeland “destroys the administration’s narrative that al Qaeda is winding down” and there is a diminishing threat of a terrorist attack occurring on U.S. soil, Mr. Addicott said.
    “This war against al Qaeda is not localized to Afghanistan and Pakistan — the problem here is that we have many people who are not members of al Qaeda but they are infected with the virus of radical Islam,” he said. “To say that Hasan was not motivated by radical Islamic extremism is absurd.”

    Acknowledging this as a terrorist attack would mean they'd have to acknowledge that they ignored the warning signs that he was a potental threat.
