FBI official admits Fort Hood attack was inspired by al Qaeda

This news is from a few weeks ago, but still important for writing about:
FBI Director James Comey testified Wednesday that he believes the 2009 mass shooting at Fort Hood in Texas was inspired by al-Qaeda.

Major Nidal Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, opened fire on his fellow servicemen and women on November 5, 2009, killing 13 and injuring 30 others. He was shot and paralyzed from the waist down in the resulting hail of gunfire, and was sentenced to death in 2013.

The federal government has termed the attack an incidence of 'workplace violence,' saying that the home-grown Hasan didn't meet the legal definition of an international terrorist.

Texas Sen. John Cornyn, however, elicited the first confirmation from the Obama administration that the 'terror' label might apply.

'In your opening statement you mentioned al-Qaeda-inspired terrorism,' Cornyn said during a Judiciary Committee hearing, 'and I know you’re familiar, if not specifically, generally with the facts of the 2009 attack at Fort Hood, Texas, when Major Nidal Hasan shot and killed 13 people, injured a couple dozen plus more.'

'Do you agree with the intelligence community’s assessment that Hasan was inspired by Al Qaeda to conduct that attack?' he asked.

'Yes, sir,;' Comey replied. 'Based on everything I’ve read – again, I wasn’t in office at the time – but I’ve read about it since, and I do.'
He's done the right thing to acknowledge what should be obvious - that this was a form of terrorist attack. Now maybe he'd also be willing to agree that the administration should give the victims purple hearts already?
