Kimberly Munley, a former civilian police officer who helped bring down Fort Hood killer Nidal Hasan, says President Barack Obama has broken his promise that the government will look after her and other victims of the atrocity.

Hasan killed 13 and wounded 32 in the 2009 bloodbath. Evidence indicates the attack might have been an act of terrorism, but the military classifies it as “workplace violence” instead.

Hasan now awaits a military trial for premeditated murder and attempted murder.

“Betrayed is a good word,” for how she feels, the former police sergeant told ABC News in an interview slated to be shown Tuesday night on “World News with Diane Sawyer” and “Nightline.”

“Not to the least little bit have the victims been taken care of,” she said. “In fact, they've been neglected.”

The White House had no immediate comment.

Munley, who has been laid off from her job since the tragedy, was shot three times as she and her partner, Sgt. Mark Todd, sought to take out Hasan, who was still firing away. When Hasan’s shots sent Munley to the ground, Todd fired the bullets credited with felling him.

Munley and other victims are suing the military, arguing that the “workplace violence” classification gives them inferior medical and financial benefits compared to veterans whose injuries are termed “combat related.”
