On November 5, 2009, Army Major Nidal Hasan attacked soldiers and civilians at Fort Hood, Texas. Hasan’s attack was reportedly inspired by al Qaeda terrorist leader Anwar al-Awlaki and was the most lethal terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11. It left 14 Americans dead and more than 30 wounded. The U.S. government stubbornly maintains the attack was “workplace violence,” and as such, denies recognition and benefits that would be rightfully due if deemed an “act ot terrorism.”
The Truth About Fort Hood explores the events that lead up to that tragic day and the ramifications which survivors are dealing with on a daily basis.
