The other tragedy is that the cowardice continues with the attack being officially called, not terrorism, not an act of war, but "workplace violence." If you think it's just a matter of words, consider this. Although the soldiers were in uniform, and had reported to that station in preparation for deployment, and despite the fact that Hassan had been instructed by al-Awlacki that terror was an instrumental part of jihad - despite the fact that these people were wounded and killed in the line of duty, not a single one of them will receive a Purple Heart or any of the benefits that should be attached to being wounded or killed in action.
Supporting the troops means more than sending care packages. Sometimes it means something as simple as insisting that words reflect reality, and that political correctness take a back seat to the mission.
