In an obvious exercise in liberal inspired political correctness, the Commander-In-Chief’s DoD released its final report on Fort Hood’s “workplace violence” allegedly perpetrated by Major Nidal Hasan while suffering from an “emotional problem and/or mental disorder.”
The word ‘Muslim’ does not appear in the report. The word ‘Islam’ does not appear in the body of the report. The word ‘mental’ appears 44 times in the report.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 20, 2010 – Pentagon officials today released the Defense Department’s final review of recommendations issued by an independent panel in the wake of the Nov. 5, 2009, shooting spree on Fort Hood, Texas.
Among the department’s top priorities, as outlined in the review, are boosting on-base emergency response capabilities, improving law enforcement and force protection information sharing with partner agencies, and integrating force protection policy, a Defense Department news release said.<…>.
The final review’s initiatives “will significantly improve the department’s ability to mitigate internal threats, ensure force protection, enable emergency response and provide care for victims and families,” Gates said.
In particular, he said, the department will strengthen its policies, programs and procedures in the following areas:
— Educating commanders about the symptoms of potential workplace violence and the tools available to them to address it;
— Ensuring commanders and supervisors have access to appropriate information in personnel records throughout a servicemember’s career;
— Improving law enforcement and force protection information sharing with partner agencies and among installations to ensure all relevant personnel are aware of and able to analyze and respond to potential threats;
— Expanding installations’ emergency response capabilities, including enabling enhanced 911 to notify dispatchers of a caller’s location, mass notification and warning systems to guide installation personnel and emergency responders to an emergency, and a common operating picture to ensure emergency responders have access to real-time information in a crisis;
— Integrating force protection policy through the creation of a consultative and policy-making body that will bring together the various entities across the department with force protection responsibilities; and
— Ensuring the department provides top-quality health care to servicemembers and health care providers by hiring additional health care providers, particularly in the mental health field, and ensuring health care providers receive appropriate post-deployment respite and time at home between deployments.
Gates also has directed the assistant secretary of defense for homeland defense and America’s security affairs to continue to lead the follow-on review and to provide regular progress reports to him.
The secretary also emphasized the importance of leadership and the need for intervention when necessary to ensure good order and discipline.
“Force protection, although critical, is not a substitute for leadership,” he said. “Leaders at every level in our military play a critical role.”
Gates pledged to provide leaders with the necessary tools to deal with potential issues among their ranks.
“As the department takes steps to strengthen its approach to force protection,” he said, “I ask leaders and commanders across the force to remain mindful of the unique requirements of the profession of arms –- that military service is grounded in an oath to support and defend our Constitution, but also may necessitate the sacrifice of some of the very rights we defend.”

It is my belief the Obama Administration politically salivates at the prospect of isolated expressions of bias and bigotry they can employ in mid-term political ads and by the Left Stream Media to denigrate everyone who disagrees with his policies and liberal views. What else have they at their disposal? The successes of their Economic policies and their grand Recovery Summer? Liberal Alleged Racism of the Right? The law suit against the state of Arizona? How well the Afghan war is going under their stewardship? How they jacked the deficit to pay for under-stimulating stimulus packages? They could try Palin bashing some more, I suppose. Perhaps they can boast that Iran went nuclear on their watch. That should win the Radical Muslim vote:
