What has happened to our military? Patriotic men and women sign up to serve their country, well aware of the fact that they may pay the ultimate price, and look how they are treated. It's shameful and deeply disturbing. All decent Americans should be outraged.

Fort Hood jihad: Army officer ordered destruction of video evidence -- "Allahu Akbar!" -- "Allah is greater"
"This is treason. An army officer order the destruction of evidence in a jihadist attack on American soldiers? The officer should be on trial for treason. Who is looking out for Americans? We know who is looking out for the jihad in America. All Atlas Fort Hood jihad coverage here.
Fort Hood jihad: Army officer ordered destruction of video evidence Jihadwatch
Can't have a video circulating of a Muslim shouting 'Allahu akbar' and murdering people, now, can we? That would be 'Islamophobic'!
'Soldier says ordered to delete Fort Hood videos,' by Angela K. Brown and Michael Graczyk for Associated Press, October 15 (thanks to Roland):
FORT HOOD, Texas - 'A soldier who recorded the terror of last year's deadly shooting rampage in Fort Hood using his cell phone was ordered by an officer to delete both videos, a military court heard Friday.
Under cross examination, Pfc. Lance Aviles told an Article 32 hearing that his noncommissioned officer ordered him to destroy the two videos on Nov. 5, the same day a gunman unleashed a volley of bullets inside a processing center at the Texas Army post.
The footage could have been used as evidence at the military hearing to decide if Maj. Nidal Hasan should stand trial in the shootings. The 40-year-old American-born Muslim has been charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder.
Twenty-nine witnesses over three days have appeared either in a courtroom or by video link. Prosecutors have not said whether they'll seek the death penalty if the case goes to trial.
Aviles described how he was waiting for medical tests at the center with his battle buddy, Pfc. Kham Xiong, when he heard someone shout. Then the gunshots began.
He said he saw a tanned, balding man wearing an Army combat uniform and carrying a black pistol.
"I saw smoke coming from the pistol," Aviles told the court.
The pair threw themselves to the floor. Aviles turned to his left to check Xiong and discovered his friend had been shot.
"His head was facing the left and a shard of his skull was sticking up," Aviles said.
Xiong, a 23-year-old father of three from St. Paul, Minn., was among the 13 who died in the attack. Aviles, the 20th person to provide testimony at the hearing, was not hurt.
Addressing the court via video link from Afghanistan, Spc. Megan Martin said she had been waiting to take medical tests when saw a man to her left stand up and shout "Allahu Akbar!" -- "God is great!" in Arabic -- then start firing a weapon...'
So crippled has our military (and other branches of government) become by this self-imposed sharia (do not insult Islam), that despite the staggering loss of US soldiers, the chief concern of Army chief Casey in the bloody aftermath of the Fort Hood jihad was that 'speculation could potentially heighten backlash against some of our Muslim soldiers and what happened at Fort Hood was a tragedy, but I believe it would be an even greater tragedy if our diversity becomes a casualty here.'
That was the concern.
On the day of Major Hasan's mass slaughter of US troops at Fort Hood in the bloodiest act of war on a military base in US history, Major Muslim Hasan distributed Qurans and his card, calling infidels to convert to Islam before his jihad (posted at Atlas November 6, 2009 -- Major Hasan's Dawah before Jihad).
Hasan screamed 'Allahu Akbar'!!! as he mowed down US soldiers at Fort Hood.
Obama has continued to withhold evidence in the Fort Hood jihadist attack and continues to shield the Muslim terrorist. Senators have been forced to sue the White House for information."
