Purple Hearts for the Two Soldiers Shot by the Little Rock Jihadist?

Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, who reportedly studied jihad with an Islamic scholar in Yemen, shot Private William Long and Private Quinton I. Ezeagwula. Long died from his wounds.

Will these two soldiers killed/wounded by the Jihadist in Little Rock get Purple Heart awards?

That might be a question with national policy implications in terms of Obama’s nomenclature for the war formerly known as “on terrorism” and now known as “overseas contingency operations.”

Little Rock isn’t overseas and the perpetrator might be regarded as a “criminal” and not the enemy that he is.

Given the new parameters of the Obama administration, would the slain soldier and wounded soldier be eligible for Purple Hearts? Had the two soldiers been standing in front of the recruiting office and been slain/wounded in an armed robbery, they certainly would not be eligible for Purple Hearts.

If the Obama administration views Jihadist terrorism as a law enforcement issue, as they claim, would these two soldiers be eligible for Purple Hearts? And, if they do receive Purple Hearts, isn’t that a tacit acknowledgement that they were in fact not involved in a crime but in an action in which they were killed/wounded by enemy fire?

    Should they? Yes.
    Will they? Very doubtful.

    They do deserve a Purple Heart. But that would bring too much attention to the truth about Islam and Obama does not want that.
