Victims of the Fort Hood shooting are calling on the government to classify it as a terrorist attack.
In November of 2009, Major Nidal Hassan, an American-born Muslim, opened fire on a room full of soldiers, killing 13 and wounding dozens more.
Witnesses say Hassan shouted "Allahu Akbar" -- Arabic for "Allah is Great" -- before opening fire.
Officials believe he was inspired by radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. Hassan and the deceased Al Qaeda leader exchanged more than 20 emails prior to the attack..
Nevertheless, the Department of Defense has labeled the rampage a case of workplace violence.
About 160 victims and their families say that classifying the shooting a terrorist attack will give them the right to receive greater benefits.
