Would you have spoken up?

What probably should concern us all a lot more than the actual event, is that an eye witness to this was afraid of losing her job with the military for actually reporting the truth of what she saw. How please, did we get to the point where telling the truth meant losing your job? How did Islam become so protected, that reporting the words of the killer as he did his best to slaughter all his coworkers is a crime and a firing offense?

  • I'd have to know what you are talking about and an actual link to know that it is fact. So much rumor gets passed around on this site, it's scary. So--what's going on?

  • Where is the link? How can anyone answer you without knowing what you are talking about?

    And, I'm pretty sure questioning the chain of command is frowned upon in the military whether it has to do with Islam or not.

  • The American Civil Liberties Union!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are not protecting the civil rights of the many. They only protect the civil rights of a few special interest groups. This is a liberal/socialist group that has made the citizenry afraid of the government. "When citizens are afraid of the government, there is tyranny. When the government is afraid of the citizens, there is liberty." (Jefferson) We, as a group, are afraid of the government, and the ACLU. They watch and patrol and dig for any minute crumb to turn into a lawsuit. The last thing that woman wanted was a complaint filed so the ACLU could grab hold on to it and sue her for discrimination based on religion. The ACLU should be held complicit in the shootings at VA Tech, and Ft. Hood.

    I found this discussion. It seems there were many "reports" about concerns, but there is a fear of being charged with discrimination/targeting because he was Muslim.
