Victims of Ft. Hood Massacre Will Sue Federal Gov: Negligence Due to Political Correctness

Survivors of the Fort Hood massacre are suing  the U.S. government for allowing a jihadist soldier to rise through the ranks  unchecked because of ‘political correctness’.

Major Nidal Hasan, 42, is charged with 13  counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder for  after launching an attack at the Texas Army post in November 2009.

And on the eve of his trial, which is due to  get underway on Tuesday, 148 victims and their relatives are launching a legal  claim against the government for $750million (£491 million) for failing to  prevent the killings from happening.

It is alleged military chiefs under the George W  Bush and Barack Obama administrations allowed Major Hasan to progress through  the ranks despite his increasing jihad extremism because of ‘political  correctness’.

Reed Rubinstein, the lawyer acting for the  group, told the Sunday  Telegraph that Major Hasan w as  awarded ‘preferential treatment’ because of his ‘ethnicity and his  religion’.

He said: ‘The rules on the conduct of  military officers were ignored. He was a terrible physician and had no business  treating soldiers.

‘Yet, because of where he came from, and how  he prayed to his god, they promoted him and set him loose and ignored his open,  very obvious jihadism.’
