Army Psychiatrist Major Nidal Hasan, shot and killed thirteen people and wounded more than 30 others, at Fort Hood. He says he did it for Allah and declared himself a soldier in the war against America and the West. But the federal government is not classifying the massacre as an act of terror. That's preventing survivors from accessing much needed benefits, and receiving well deserved honors. To make matters worse, Major Hasan is collecting thousands of dollars in military pay. Virginia Congressman Frank Wolf is co-sponsoring a bill to stop pay for alleged violent felons like Hasan. Retired Sergeant Howard Ray was in the line of fire during the Fort Hood massacre.
