A planned April 1 news conference in front of Fort Hood’s main gate had all the ingredients to make a big splash: Two congressmen, a pair of victims from the Fort Hood shooting and media were invited.

But it didn’t happen.

        I say there is a link to both terrorism and treason. A Major in the US Armed Forces kills 12 other US Armed forces members IN THE NAME of protecting the enemy, an enemy considered to be terrorist. I cannot understand why the Dept of Defense dumbed this down to a "workplace incident" - can anyone explain the logic or fear behind that?

        Unfortunately, there is no link to terrorism in this incident.

        The continued interference by Congress into this matter is called "unlawful command influence", and needs to stop. Until such time as the trial is over, making these kinds of overtures and comments are willful interference with military justice and could actually lead to clemency for the accused. Stop it.

        “I think that a lot of people felt like the timing might not be right,” Williams said during a visit to the Killeen Daily Herald last week.

        Timing...the victims didn't get any time to save themselves.

        Stop allowing Hasan, the Fort Hood shooter preferential treatment. Stop the delays of this trial....

        Our government needs to do the right thing....It was a terroristic act and should be classified as such.

        Maybe it is time for our leaders, from the top down, to have a backbone.
