Autumn Manning, wife of Army Staff Sgt. Shawn Manning who was wounded in the Ft. Hood terror attack, is speaking out on Twitter. Manning claims that the Department of Defense has “slapped victims of violence with gag orders” and is preventing them to discuss denial of benefits and other developments in the wake of the attack.

The attack was famously classified as “workplace violence” and as of such, wounded have been denied combat benefits.

Why would the DOD gag families, especially those who aren’t serving thus not obligated to comply?

*UPDATE: Manning added:


A gag order for witnesses? But I thought that the DOD didn’t think it classified as a terror attack? What’s to hide?
