As opposed to “moderate Islamic terrorism,” I guess. But in any case, Congressman Carter’s main point is sound. “Carter: Radical Islam Still Not Acknowledged As Cause Of Post Rampage,” from KWTX.com, November 5:
WASHINGTON (November 5, 2010)–On the first anniversary of the deadly shooting at Fort Hood, Rep. John Carter, R-Round Rock, issued a statement Friday in which he said the Pentagon has still not acknowledged that “radical Islamic terrorism” was the cause of the rampage.
In the statement, Carter said the Defense Department “must not allow political correctness to continue to skew its policies on force protection.”
“It has been a year since the terror attack on Fort Hood, and DOD still refuses to even use the words ‘radical Islam’ in their report on the attack or recommendations on how to prevent future attacks,” Carter said.
“That does not instill confidence in Congress that DOD is taking the necessary steps to protect our troops.”…
The legislation Carter introduced also would provide whistleblower protection for both military and civilian personnel who report threats from “radical Islamic sympathizers.”
He also introduced a measure that would provide active shooter training for all military and civilian law enforcement personnel at military installations.
