Up to 8 Army officers face charges stemming from shooting at Fort Hood. 2 questions...

The Pentagons investigation has revealed "serious shortcomings." According to Defense Secretary Gates, "Military supervisors are not properly focused on the threat posed by self-radicalization and need to better understand the behavioral warning signs. And he warned that extremists are changing their tactics in an attempt to hit the United States."

1. Should these people be punished for complying with unspoken political correctness?
2. What changes do you think the military should make to help them prevent what amounts to "radical infiltration?"

  • I do believe they should be punished. That being said, when the next officer denies a promotion for these very reasons, he/she should not be punished.

  • 1. Should these people be punished for complying with unspoken political correctness? Who said they WERE compying with PC?? and YES, they didn't do their jOBS and put soldiers at risk. Saying they were complying with PC is giving them an excuse for NOT doing their job


     2. What changes do you think the military should make to help them prevent what amounts to "radical infiltration?" I disagree with your theory. They should get whatever one gets for failure to do their jobs
