Sen. Cornyn To President Obama: Recognize that Ft. Hood Attack Likely Act of Islamist Terrorism

“We Must Never Allow the Safety of Those Who Defend Our Freedom to Be Made a Secondary Priority to Political Correctness”


Nov 17 2009


WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, wrote to President Obama expressing concern about the Administration’s reluctance to characterize the violent events at Fort Hood as an act of terrorism. In the letter, Sen. Cornyn writes that it appears increasingly probable that the Fort Hood attacker may have been motivated by a fanatical religious ideology, and that this should serve as a wake-up call for federal officials. Sen. Cornyn is calling on the President and his Administration to ensure that political correctness never impedes the vigorous investigation of potential threats to our national security.
