Apparently we have yet to prove that he did it. And if we just cut him off without spending four years dragging through a trial process and multiple judges, then we would be no better than him. Or that’s how liberals think anyway.

The Department of Defense confirms to NBC 5 Investigates that accused Fort Hood shooter Major Nidal Hasan has now been paid more than $278,000 since the Nov. 5, 2009 shooting that left 13 dead 32 injured. The Army said under the Military Code of Justice, Hasan’s salary cannot be suspended unless he is proven guilty.

Meanwhile, more than three years later soldiers wounded in the mass shooting are fighting to receive the same pay and medical benefits given to those wounded in combat.

Retired Army Spc. Logan Burnett, a reservist who, in 2009, was soon to be deployed to Iraq, was shot three times when a gunman opened fire inside the Army Deployment Center.

“I honestly thought I was going to die in that building,” said Burnett. “Just blood everywhere and then the thought of — that’s my blood everywhere.”

Burnett nearly died. He’s had more than a dozen surgeries since the shooting, and says post-traumatic stress still keeps him up at night.

Burnett is now fighting a new battle; only this one is against the U.S. Army. The Army has not classified the wounds of the Ft. Hood victims as “combat related” and declines to label the shooting a “terrorist attack”,

The “combat related” designation is an important one, for without it Burnett and other shooting victims are not given combat-related pay, they are not eligible for Purple Heart retirement or medical benefits given to other soldiers wounded either at war or during the Sept. 11, 2001 attack on the Pentagon.

What exactly is the difference between Mohammed Atta and Nidal Hasan? Aside from the technicality of Hasan’s citizenship, which should have been stripped away from him once he made his defection and allegiance to a foreign power clear, there isn’t one. They are both terrorists who murdered Americans.

The real difference is Barack Hussein Obama.

Under Obama, American soldiers struggle for benefits while terrorists pile in the cash. Under Obama, terrorism is denied, lied about and covered up.

    While the fact that a "soldier for Allah" is receiving gov't largess is both reprehensible and maddening, the fact of the matter is that Obama Inc deemed his massacre a "workplace violence" incident. Be that as it may, the Pentagon is, on the orders of the Islamist-in-Chief, training jihadists within American cities. Yes, they are – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/05/01/u-s-military-

    So if you place one outrage atop another, the fact that a jihadist is handsomely rewarded out of America's coffers comes into sharp relief. A plus B…

    Obama will do nothing but distress Americans while pouring millions upon millions into Islamist
    coffers under the aegis of foreign aid which is supporting terrorist entities, who gives him
    this power, the purse is supposed to be held by the Congress. With total disregard for our
    Constitution Obama does as he pleases, Congress sits on thier fat pay checks and our
    people suffer, our heros are kicked to the curb and we vote for these people, maybe a
    change in voter attitude and conduct is in order before the roof collapses in on us.

    I'm outraged that he hasn't even been tried yet. It's not like he didn't murder 13 and wound dozens of others in front of hundreds of witnesses. Someone is seriously incompetent or crooked.

    I guess that crime does pay. Will they also pay the younger Tsarnaev for his contribution to killing? The democratic government has become a zoo run by animals.
