Fort Hood Hero Claims Obama 'Betrayed' Her

Former Fort Hood police sergeant Kimberly Munley told ABC News that President Barack Obama broke promises he made to take care of victims of the November 5, 2009 Fort Hood shooting. "Betrayed is a good word," Munley said in an exclusive segment on "World News with Diane Sawyer." "Not to the least bit have the victims been taken care of." Munley, who was shot three times as she and her partner confronted the shooter, sat next to Michelle Obama during the president's State of the Union address in 2010, and told ABC News that she believes the White House used her seating arrangement for political gain. In November, on the third anniversary of the Fort Hood army base shooting, 148 victims and family members sued the government, alleging that the Defense Department dodged legal ramifications by classifying the shootings as "workplace violence" rather than a terrorist attack, the Associated Press reported. The shooting victims allege that the "workplace violence" classification limits them from receiving the benefits they would otherwise receive if they had been injured in combat, according to the Associated Press. "We've asked for the incident to be reclassified from 'workplace violence,' of all things, to what it was, which was a terroristic attack," Munley said in the ABC News interview . Munley urged that the victims who came together for this reclassification have "been denied several times." Munley, along with other victims of the Fort Hood shooting, will reportedly speak out against the president in an ABC News special airing ahead of Obama's State of the Union address. "We got tired of being neglected," Munley said. "This is our last resort, and I'm not ashamed of it a bit."

Cilla McCain: The Good Marine Corps Wife vs. The United States of America

On July 31, 2008, Colonel Michael Ross Stahlman, USMC, was found in his room at Camp Ramadi, Iraq with a gunshot wound to the left side of his head. The right-handed colonel died Oct. 5, 2008. Despite the fact that he never suffered from depression, within hours, investigators labeled the shooting a suicide attempt. They have stuck with that finding to this day, leaving his widow to bear the task of finding the truth. As a Marine Corps wife, Kimberly Stahlman packed up and moved more times than most people could stomach. With each move, she immersed herself into her husband's lifestyle and kept the home fires burning all over the world. While the colonel was climbing the Marine Corps ladder, she put her master's degree in psychology to work by helping to develop the first victim's advocacy group in Okinawa, Japan. She also joined other officers' wives in organizing charity fundraisers and attended endless social events to promote her husband's career. She even stepped forward to assume the role of president of the Parris Island Officers' Spouses Club when it was near collapse because nobody else wanted to assume leadership. She did all of this after enduring a difficult childbirth that left her with multiple health problems. In short, she was the epitome of a good Marine Corps wife. Today, Kimberly is a Marine Corps widow and has come to believe that a widow's life is one the Marine Corps wants her to live in the shadows. In actuality, she would like to oblige them, but looming large is the ongoing investigation she has conducted into her husband's death. From the beginning, Kimberly didn't believe her husband shot himself and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS), made it quite clear that she was on her own in pursuit of any other conclusion. Consequently, she joined forces with forensic experts and amassed considerable scientific evidence alleging that her husband was murdered. Despite this, NCIS has stubbornly refused to consider the new evidence, and informed Kimberly "she could not change their minds no matter what kind of evidence she presents." Left with no alternative, on Jan. 16, 2013, she filed an Administrative Procedures Action or APA with the U.S. District Court in Maryland. The APA is a law which allows a federal judge to review and reverse the decisions made by governmental agencies. Kimberly's lawsuit accuses the defendants, who include NCIS and the Secretary of Defense with "acting in a manner that is "arbitrary, capricious, an abuse of discretion, or otherwise, not in accordance with law." Among the forensic issues are the number of shots fired in Colonel Stahlman's room the morning of July 31, 2008. According to court documents, two bullets fired in the room. One went clear through the wall of his trailer and landed in pristine condition in the trailer next door, while another went through the Colonel's head. On the other hand, NCIS claims there was only one bullet fired that terrible morning, and it went through the colonel's head and several walls, before it landed unscathed in the trailer next door. I don't know, but it seems quite miraculous for a bullet to travel through so many obstacles without sustaining any damage. The suit goes on to allege that investigators "conducted little or no investigation" into at least 20 different matters that would have accompanied a thorough investigation and followed DoD directives. Among them, the number of bullets remaining in the Colonel's 9mm. Apparently, NCIS never counted them and subsequently did not examine his blood-soaked mattress for the presence of a second round. In addition, the suit claims that the blood spatter trajectory contradicts NCIS findings. It seems that Colonel Stahlman's blood sprayed in a different direction from the bullet that NCIS claims killed him. According to the forensic expert, Michael Maloney, this is an impossibility because blood always follows the same path as the bullet that causes the injury. Whoever the judge deciding the APA turns out to be, he or she will be hard-pressed to not take Kimberly Stahlman seriously. After all, there is a certain irony to her steely determination. Life in the Marine Corps taught her to stand strong in the face of adversity even when the odds are stacked unfavorably. She lives the motto "Semper fi" and as a good Marine wife, has remained faithful. But unlike the Corps, she refuses to dishonor her husband by allowing a substandard investigation to go unchecked.

Everything You Need To Know About Marketing You Learned In High School: 6 Rules

David Brock: The Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy: Out of Gas?

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is departing from the State Department on her own terms and with a formidable legacy intact. Given that Clinton, no matter what she decides about 2016, will undoubtedly remain an influential figure in American public life for years to come, one might have expected her long-time detractors, who have been trying for more than 20 years to trip her up, to land some solid blows to her widely admired reputation for leadership on the global stage. Instead, we've been treated to salvos that were silly, at best; and on the one potentially serious issue raised, the Fox News-initiated and Mitt Romney-fortified Benghazi craze, all the attacks fell flat. The Fake Concussion The first attempt to tarnish Clinton as she prepared to leave office got started when news broke of her concussion in mid-December and a potentially life-threatening blood clot later that month. The usual suspects quickly tied the news to the September attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya to suggest Clinton was fabricating all of it to avoid testifying on the tragedy. Bill O'Reilly said of her concussion, "If she was in the NFL I wouldn't let her play, but I think she can make a phone call." Fox's Laura Ingraham told the host that conservatives were now calling Clinton's condition as "the immaculate concussion." Their colleagues Charles Krauthammer and Kimberly Guilfoyle accused her of having a "severe Benghazi allergy" and pulling a "duck and cover." John Bolton jumped on the bandwagon, suggesting this was a fake "diplomatic illness." Their unhinged use of Clinton's health as a political weapon quickly drew fire from their own ranks and beyond (imagine, their speculation was too much even for some of their own counterparts at Fox). Things got more embarrassing when the State Department not only challenged these false claims with the facts but also scolded a Fox producer for falsely suggesting ulterior motives were involved in Clinton's sick leave. Of course, the Big Lie was laid bare in due time, as all the world saw Clinton's doctors quoted on the record on her condition; Clinton, flanked by her family, leaving New York-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City; and Clinton wearing special glasses for medical reasons in her Congressional testimony last week. In short, no sane person could believe the illness was fabricated. Crocodile Tears The instant Clinton choked up during the Senate hearing as she reflected on the four lives lost in the Benghazi attack -- "For me, this is not just a matter of policy, it's personal. I stood next to President Obama as the Marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at Andrews," she said -- the right-wing was again on the case. Rush Limbaugh without hesitation called the moment "part of the script." Fox jumped in with Ingraham suggesting she was "lip-synching crying" and Sean Hannity arguing the whole thing was "staged, probably at the direction of" James Carville. The baseless speculation of the Right-Wing Noise Machine clearly emboldened Senate Republicans' post-hearing line that Clinton was using all the diversion tactics she could muster to dodge key questions. Most notably, moments after the hearing, Sen. Ron Johnson, Republican of Wisconsin, himself the master of feigned outrage in the hearing, went on the air to claim that Clinton's show of emotion in response to the deaths of four Americans was "her trump card to get out of the questions." A day later he turned tail, recanting what he said on CNN, and admitting that he "probably speculated and I shouldn't have." At the end of the day, in a desperate effort to deny Clinton her humanity, her enemies looked like fools. Benghazi-Gate These two smears were tied to the Right's months-long and now widely discredited politicization of Benghazi. With a candidate for the White House who couldn't hold his own in foreign-policy debates, they sought to turn the Sept. 11th tragedy into a mega-scandal to win the upper hand. Romney and his allies outsourced much of the work to Fox News and right-wing media - and a seemingly impenetrable wall of noise and falsehoods was formed to attack the administration. With Obama re-elected and no longer standing for office, the Right came gunning for Secretary Clinton - whose political career may not be over. Not surprisingly, Fox's top-line arguments made it into several of the questions and statements Republican lawmakers shamelessly asked Clinton, but she demolished each one. Shetorpedoed the lie that State Department officials negligently watched video of the assault in "real time" here in DC -- as she said, "there was no monitor, there was no real time." She put to rest Fox's bogus narrative that she and the President justified the attack the day after - "I want to be clear that of course it was a terrorist attack. The very next day I called it an attack by heavily armed militants on our compound," she said. And she drowned out the false accusation that the administration intentionally misidentified the source of the violence saying, "With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans...What difference at this point does it make?" The reviews came rolling in. Typical was Eugene Robinson's in the Washington Post. He wrote, "Clinton's smooth and confident performance at Wednesday's Senate and House committee hearings was fun to watch. When her would-be inquisitors asked serious questions, she gave serious answers." Joan Walsh also noted her strong performance, writing "Three weeks after her release from a New York hospital with a blood clot on the brain ... Clinton stood up to the raging bulls with grace and fire of her own." When all was said and done, Clinton had the last word, telling ABC News, "When someone tries to put it into a partisan lens, when they focus, not on the fact that we have such a terrible event happening with four dead Americans but instead what did somebody say on a Sunday morning talk show, that to me is not in keeping with the seriousness of the issue and the obligation we all have as public servants."

City Sued Over 2011 Floods

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Surviving relatives of four people killed in flash flooding in Pittsburgh in August 2011 are suing several government and private entities claiming the deaths could have been prevented, attorneys for the two affected families announced Friday. Mary Saflin, 72, of Oakmont, was swept away from her vehicle and down into a sewer conduit where she drowned, and Kimberly Griffith, 45, and her daughters, Brenna, 12, and Mikaela, 8, became trapped in their minivan and also drowned when heavy rains caused a nine-foot wall of water to sweep down a low-lying section of road during afternoon rush hour traffic on Aug. 19, 2011. Attorneys Alan Perer and Paul Manion have scheduled a Friday morning news conference to announce the lawsuit against the city, its water and sewer authority, Allegheny County and its sewage authority, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, an engineering firm and even Chrysler Group LLC, which made the Griffiths' van. Those entities didn't immediately return emails and phone messages seeking comment. "Evidence has emerged that the danger of swift, violent flooding on Washington Boulevard has been known to government officials and their engineering consultants for a very long time and occurred repeatedly," the attorneys said in a news release. "Plans to correct the dangerous situation were drawn up but never implemented." City, state and county officials have since studied the road an installed an automatic gate system that closes sections of the road in the event of heavy rains. PennDOT has said it spent about $450,000 on the gates. Sensors will close the gates if a certain amount of water is detected on the road and emergency responders will automatically be alerted. The city has also trained about 1,700 public safety employees in swift-water rescue tactics since the flooding, which witnesses described as chaotic. The water was so deep that rescuers in a boat intent on rescuing a man from a tree floated over the Griffiths' van without realizing it, city emergency management officials told The Associated Press the day after the flood. People were clinging to trees, poles and car roofs. One woman tried to scramble to the roof of her car but the water was moving so fast, she was dragged along in it, then grabbed on to a truck. Attorney Perer said Chrysler is being sued because the electric windows on the Griffiths' Town and County minivan didn't work under water and the water pressure kept the victims from opening the doors to escape. "When this kind of vehicle is caught in a serious flood, getting out of it can be difficult or impossible," Perer said. "It becomes a trap and it will take lives. Here it killed a mother and her young children."

US senators in immigration reform push

Leading Democratic and Republican US senators have pledged to propel far-reaching immigration legislation through the Senate by this summer, providing a possible path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million people currently in the United States illegally. The senators pointed towards changes in demographics, and particularly voting patterns amongst Hispanic voters, as providing an opportunity to establish broad bi-partisan support for the proposals made on Monday.

End of women-in-conflict ban inspires some to enlist

While some politicians have yet to come to terms with the women-in-combat issue, a few women have already made up their minds. They're enlisting ASAP. In the hours after the Pentagon announced that women could soon serve in gender-segregated combat roles, dozens of young women tweeted or Facebooked their plans to followers. Kimberly Munzinger, who left the Marines when she couldn't become a field artillerist, might join again after she wraps up her degree. Lily Boulourian, who had planned to go to law school, called a reservist friend to meet for coffee and talk about enlisting. Read full article >>
