Priceless! – You can’t make this up.

If you still doubt that the people currently in charge are putting PC bullshit ahead of our security then this story might clear the air somewhat:

Sen. Susan Collins on Wednesday blasted the Defense Department for classifying the Fort Hood massacre as workplace violence and suggested political correctness is being placed above the security of the nation’s Armed Forces at home.

During a joint session of the Senate and House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, the Maine Republican referenced a letter from the Defense Department depicting the Fort Hood shootings as workplace violence. She criticized the Obama administration for failing to identify the threat as radical Islam.

Thirteen people were killed and dozens more wounded at Fort Hood in 2009, and the number of alleged plots targeting the military has grown significantly since then. Lawmakers said there have been 33 plots against the U.S. military since Sept. 11, 2001, and 70 percent of those threats have been since mid-2009. Major Nidal Hasan, a former Army psychiatrist, who is being held for the attacks, allegedly was inspired by radical U.S.-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen in late September. The two men exchanged as many as 20 emails, according to U.S. officials, and Awlaki declared Hasan a hero.

Seriously? The WH has classified a terror attack that killed 13 American military personnel as workplace violence? WTF? Ex-military, conservatives, and Tea Partiers are all dangerous quasi-terrorists (or outright terrorists according to some on the left), but actual terrorists, commit work place violence?

I am debating whether to re-read the Qur’an and beef up on how to kiss Allah’s ass or buy more ammo, because we are doomed. Looks like it is ammo.
