Texas Tragedy

Nov 10, 2009

As anyone who watches or reads the news can attest, all eyes have been focused on Fort Hood the past several days. Fort Hood is one of the largest military installations in the world with more than 35,000 individuals residing on or near the base, and it's only an hour from my home north of Austin.

What I find most shocking about the debate surrounding the mass murder that occurred is that military and intelligence individuals KNEW the danger and did nothing. The army will kick you out for your sexual behavior, but sedition and treason are blatantly ignored in the name of political correctness. Heaven forbid we should offend anyone.

The men and women in our armed services deserve better than this, to die at the hands of a jihadi masquerading as a "brother in arms."

Our prayers are with the families of the fallen and the recovering victims and the defenders who brought down a madman. We are thankful for their service, and their bravery in a war that has come to our front yard.

It should never have come to this.
