  1. the fort hood problem has many of the same corruption lying denying cover up problems that our sick corrupt polluted clinton crew democrat press enjoy having, only obviously at least the fort hood situation is able to slightly confess and correct and organize prospect accountability. the lying ford flopped press by disgraced contrast will simply tell this news to try and ignore their unconstitutional role in election interference and more.

  2. The NCO Corp should take a bigger hit on this. "No one is more professional…" They're more worried about spots on boots and Capri cuffs than soldier welfare. From the CSM to the TM LDR. No one is more culpable than thee…

  3. That unfortunate young woman was killed on the base during her duty shift and the base Commander didn't want to look for her even at her family's strong suggestion. They ignored the family's statements that there was severe harassment on Fort Hood directed towards their daughter. The local community and her family started the search. Road workers found her body.

  4. A slap on the wrist is hardly enough for these leaders. This is sending the wrong message that these leaders will move on to other positions, leave the Army, or some may take off the uniform and put on civilian clothes and return to the same positions. I am disappointed. Not enough being done for the horrendous acts; SPC Guillen bludgeoned in an Arms Room and no leaders suspected or reported anything? Investigators were not willing to properly conduct their duties when provided with leads? Come on Mr. POTUS, this is NOT Justice for the families.

  5. Criminal predation is not a lack of leadership, but rather; its a very serious mental illness that poses a significant life threat to all personnel in his immediate company!! They need to be in a high security lockdown penitentiary and medicated.

  6. They need to investigate all bases ‼️ From Bragg to Hood ‼️ Make soldiers accountable for their actions off and on post‼️ Instead of bailing them out and putting them on extra duty ‼️

  7. I’m so glad this is done. Too many Latin and Hispanic soldiers have died. The climate is indicative of is leadership. It starts at the local command level, all the way to the Pentagon and the White House. At the Pentagon, leaders were consistently fired by Trump. Oversight failed.

  8. Just a lot of do nothing meaningless words strung together to sound like they are actually doing something, delivered by another do-nothing "diversity" and "inclusion" worshiping bureaucrat, refusing to see the giant elephant in the room (the very one they put there) because it goes against their pro "diversity" and "inclusion" worshiping narrative, over high merit and leadership standards.

  9. A beautiful young soldier had to be brutally violated and murdered for y'all to even begin to acknowledge this horrible failure in leadership? F*cking shameful. As an Army Veteran, I'm disgusted.

  10. That base has had failures for a long time I pray that it does not take a long time to fix these issues, because these murders of men and women serving our country should not go unpunished. It's not called "Fort Hoodlum" for No reason….

  11. Jesus Christ saves from sin.
    Romans 3: 23
    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    Hebrews 9: 27
    And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
    Isaiah 64: 6
    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
    Revelation 21: 8
    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
    Romans 5: 8
    But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
    John 3: 16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    John 14: 6
    Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
    Romans 10: 9-10.
    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    Jesus said John 5: 24
    Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
    1John 5: 10-13
    He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
    And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
    He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
    These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

    And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
    2 Corinthians 5: 21
    For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
