    I retired from the military in 2004. The liberals have effectively pushed and demanded Political Correctness in the military until the commanders have to tip toe around everything. I really enjoyed attending the required "sensitivity training" that all enlisted and officers were forced to attend. CNN does a fish know that it is wet? CNN do you know that your liberal view is part of the problem? The huge majority of your content is liberal and pro socolist-wake up.

    jim vicalvi: George W Bush did worse than that. Also tax payers dollars were spent on security for his daughters to go out and get pissing drunk. Think before you leap my friend. George bush spent trillions on a war that should never have been fought in Iraq.

    Obama should be doing more than visiting, he should be getting those men and women out of that un-god forsaken hole in the world we call the middle east! Get off of oil all together and see if eating oil is very healthy!

    WTF is all this BS talk bt John Roberts and most of the rest of the media about PTSD???

    CNN should be ashamed for trying to put off what happened at Ft Hood onto this. The truth is CNN and most of the media do not have the COURAGE to call it what it is – An enemy attack from within!!

    You make me and most Americans sick and I GUESS THAT'S WHY FOX RATINGS BLOW YOU GUYS AWAY - AMERICA WANTS THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I just want to say may their souls RIP. And I think that it's sad for RUSH L. to say this is Obama fault, When everybody knows this man was on Bush and the Republicans watch they could've stop him before it got to this point.

    What the FBI need to be worried about now is all of the soldiers that this guy saw for PTSD and what he told them, and did he try convert them to what he beleived. That's the question that remains to be answered...

    So, obama is finally going to do something here instead of flying all over, at taxpayer expense. How nice.

    This is one more example of not holding anyone accountable for what they say especially in the military. This political correctness is no different than the lack of action when Law Enforcement Agents reported to their superiors that muslims were learning to fly jets but not take off or land them.
    America wake up. The threat is real and the enemy is here!
