The Pentagon has released its report on the Fort Hood massacre, said William Bennett, and it is “a complete and total whitewash.” In more than 80 pages, the report supposedly examines Army Maj. Nidal Hasan’s massacre of 13 people in Texas without mentioning the words “Islam” or “Muslim”—“not once.” There is no mention that Hasan’s business card described him as a “Soldier of Allah.” Nor does the report note that Hasan once said “non-Muslims were infidels condemned to hell who should be set on fire,” or that he shouted “Allahu Akbar” as he murdered his fellow soldiers.

Instead, the report blames “low self-esteem, depression, and anger,” and classifies the murders as “workplace violence.” But Hasan was not a disgruntled worker—he was a terrorist who chose to side with the nation’s enemies. Yet in obeisance to “diversity,” his superiors not only let him continue to serve as a psychiatrist to other soldiers but promoted him, again and again.

To stop the next preventable tragedy, the military must first admit that Islamic extremism exists—and that it can be fatal.
