In a fit of political correctness, the Obama administration decided to classify the 2009 massacre on the Texas military base as "workplace violence" instead of what it was: the assault of an Islamic militant upon our soldiers here at home.

The accused Fort Hood shooter, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, began his court-martial Tuesday admitting he's guilty. "The evidence will clearly show that I am the shooter," said Maj. Hasan, who faces 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted murder for those he wounded.
Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan fired the last of 146 bullets in his assault on Fort Hood, then walked outside where he met two civilians who asked about the commotion and the laser-sighted pistol in his hand.
