Remember the Fort Hood shooting? It occurred early in Obama’s first term and he insisted on calling the event “work place violence” rather than terrorism.
The shooter now says he’s going on a hunger strike.

Fort Hood shooter says he’s going on ‘hunger strike’
Writing from his cell on death row at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan has declared he is going on a “99 pound hunger strike,” according to a letter reviewed by Fox News.
The former Army psychiatrist, who opened fire on unarmed fellow soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, in November 2009, killed 13 people and injured 31 that day. Hasan was sentenced to death in 2013 and continues to declare himself an SoA, “soldier of Allah.”
Hasan stated in the handwritten letter that by going on a hunger strike, he will “reduce and then maintain a total body weight of 99 pounds” while protesting “America’s hatred for [Shariah] Laws.”
On March 27, Lt. Gen. Sean B. MacFarland, the commanding general at Fort Hood, issued a statement effectively saying Hasan will not be dismissed by the U.S. Army until he is executed.
“In the case of Major Nidal M. Hasan (redacted) … the sentence is approved and, except for that portion of the sentence pertaining to a Dismissal from the Service and being put to death, will be executed,” he wrote.
