It pays to be an Islamic terrorist: Fort Hood Major shooter Nidal Hasan has collected $278,000 in salary from the military in the years since the Nov. 5, 2009 shooting that took 13 lives
The Defense Department has confirmed the payments and explains that it's powerless to stop them: The Military Code of Justice requires that the Muslim murderer Hasan receive his salary; only a guilty verdict can stop that. This is in stark contrast to the case of now-retired Army Spc. Logan Burnett, who was hit three times in the shooting and has since been fighting the Army for money. The Army labeled the shooting an incident of "workplace violence," and that has big implications: Because it's not using the label "terrorist attack" or describing wounds as "combat related," Burnett and others wounded that day don't receive the same pay and Purple Heart retirement or medical benefits as those injured in combat or in the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon.
