Retired Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford says he will never forget locking eyes with the gunman who entered a Fort Hood building Nov. 5, 2009, then unleashed a burst of gunfire into a crowd of soldiers preparing for deployment.
Benghazi isn't the first time the Obama administration has struggled with whether to call an attack on a U.S. post a terrorist attack. Nearly three years after the fact, the Defense Department still calls the shootings at Fort Hood, Texas, an act of workplace violence, despite the suspect's ties to al Qaeda.
"The government has tried to deny that this was an act of terrorism. I think that, I hope that if people hear the words from Hasan's own mouth, that they will understand that this was an act of terrorism," said Staff Sgt. Shawn Manning, who was shot six times in the rampage, Fox News reported.
Deployed soldiers in those units are allowed to fire their weapons only in self-defense, Manning said.
