    Re: forthood shooting,

    Nah, they will pretty much leave this one alone ... after all the libs believe only police and military should have firearms. Had we allowed are fine troops to carry weapons openly on US home bases, they could have cut this A hole down quickly.
    .
    Even worse, just heard from this A holes cousin, and he as a major had made Anti-American comments while stationed in Washington D.C., had never been deployed to war zone before, and it was his greatest fear. He was fighting his deployment orders, and others were picking on him because of his faith. Poor baby! In the army, and being required to deploy to war. Go figure.

    Re: forthood shooting,

    Now they are reporting the shooter is alive and in custody.
    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,572305,00.html

    A military doctor who feared an impending war deployment is believed to be the gunman behind a shooting rampage Thursday afternoon at the Army's Fort Hood in Texas that killed 12 and wounded 31 before the gunman was shot multiple times.
    Three soldiers were taken into custody as possible suspects, Lt. Gen. BOB Cone told reporters Thursday evening, though two were later released.
    Cone identified the lone gunman as Major Malik Nadal Hasan, a psychiatrist who reportedly didn't believe in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and wanted out of the military before he was set to be deployed overseas.
    Hasan was in stable condition condition at a local hospital Thursday night, Cone said after previously reporting that he was killed at the scene.
    A female first responder who shot at Hasan who was also previously thought to be dead, was also alive.
    Federal law enforcement officials say Hasan had come to their attention at least six months ago because of Internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other threats.
    The officials say they are still trying to confirm that he was the author.
    One of the Web postings that authorities reviewed is a blog that equates homicide bombers with a soldier throwing himself on a grenade to save the lives of his comrades.
    <!-- QUIGO --> <!-- QUIGO --> <script type="text/javascript"> var adsonar_placementId="1425767",adsonar_pid="144757",adsonar_ps="-1",adsonar_zw=224;adsonar_zh=93,adsonar_jv="ads.adsonar.com"; </script> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://js.adsonar.com/js/adsonar.js"></script>
    "To say that this soldier committed suicide is inappropriate. Its more appropriate to say he is a brave hero that sacrificed his life for a more noble cause," said the Internet posting. "Scholars have paralled (sic) this to suicide bombers whose intention, by sacrificing their lives, is to help save Muslims by killing enemy soldiers."
    They say an official investigation was not opened.
    Hasan was working with soldiers at Darnall Army Medical Center on Fort Hood after being transfered in July from Walter Reed Army Medical Center, where he had worked for six years before recently receiving a poor review.
    A former neighbor of Hasan's in Silver Spring, Md. told Fox News he lived there for two years with his brother and had the word "Allah" on the door.

    She said the FBI interviewed her this afternoon, adding she used to see a woman and a 3-year-old girl coming and going.
    Cone said the shooter used two guns, including a semi-automatic weapon. He added there was no indication they were military weapons.
    The shooting took place 1:30 p.m. Thursday at the post's Soldier Readiness Center, where soldiers undergo medical screening before being deployed or after returning from overseas.
    "We have a terrible, tragic situation here," said Cone. "Soldiers, family members and the civilians that work here are absolutely devastated."
    Cone said the injuries "vary significantly" among the victims wounded in the shooting. The victims include one civilian police officer.
    The shooter's cousin, Nader Hasan, told Fox News that their family is in shock.
    "We are trying to make sense of all this," Nader Hasan said. "He wasn't even someone who enjoyed going to the firing range."
    He said his cousin, who was born and raised in Virginia and graduated from Virginia Tech University, turned against the wars after hearing the stories of those who came back from Afghanistan and Iraq.
    Nader Hasan said his cousin, who was raised a Muslim, wanted to go into the military against his parent's wishes — but was taunted by others after the terror attacks of Sept. 11.
    He now is believed to have been behind the worst mass shooting at a U.S. military base in history.
    George Stratton's son, George Stratton III, was five feet away from the shooter at the Soldier Readiness Center and suffered a gunshot wound to his left shoulder.
    "He said he was there doing medical stuff and all of a sudden someone came through the door, walked behind the desk and just started shooting," Stratton told FoxNews.com.
    He said about 15 rounds went off and people started dropping to the floor.
    "He peaked up over the desk and that's when he was shot in the shoulder, and he just went down again. He said he saw one of his NCOs get badly shot," Stratton told FoxNews.com after talking to his son in the hospital. "After he got shot he told me, 'Dad, I got up, held my arm and took off running.'"
    Stratton said his son was expected to be deployed to Afghanistan in January after going to basic training exactly a year ago.
    "It's pretty hard to believe something like this happened," Stratton told FoxNews.com. "I think he's probably had his fill of war already."
    President Obama called the shooting a "horrific outburst of violence" on members of the nation's armed forces. "It is horrifying that they should come under fire at an army base on American soil," he said
    Obama said his thoughts and prayers are with the wounded and families of the fallen.
    Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison said the shooting was a terrible tragedy for all of the military families affected.
    A spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations said they don't know anything about Hasan, and condemned the shooting at Fort Hood.
    The group issued a statement calling the shooting as a "cowardly attack." They say no political or religious ideology could ever justify or excuse such violence.
    The base and area schools were on lockdown after the mass shooting, and all those on the Army post were asked to gather for a head count, thought the lockdown was lifted Thursday night.
    Covering 339 square miles, Fort Hood is the largest active duty armored post in the United States. Home to about 52,000 troops as of earlier this year, the sprawling base is located halfway between Austin and Waco.
    FoxNews.com's Michelle Maskaly and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    Fort Hood's 9/11
    By RALPH PETERS Last Updated: 1:59 PM, November 6, 2009
    On Thursday afternoon, a radicalized Muslim US Army officer shouting "Allahu Akbar!" committed the worst act of terror on American soil since 9/11. And no one wants to call it an act of terror or associate it with Islam. What cowards we are. Political correctness killed those patriotic Americans at Ft. Hood as surely as the Islamist gunman did. And the media treat it like a case of non-denominational shoplifting. This was a terrorist act. When an extremist plans and executes a murderous plot against our unarmed soldiers to protest our efforts to counter Islamist fanatics, it’s an act of terror. Period. When the terrorist posts anti-American hate-speech on the Web; apparently praises suicide bombers and uses his own name; loudly criticizes US policies; argues (as a psychiatrist, no less) with his military patients over the worth of their sacrifices; refuses, in the name of Islam, to be photographed with female colleagues; lists his nationality as "Palestinian" in a Muslim spouse-matching program, and parades around central Texas in a fundamentalist playsuit ˜ well, it only seems fair to call this terrorist an "Islamist terrorist." But the president won’t. Despite his promise to get to all the facts. Because there’s no such thing as "Islamist terrorism" in ObamaWorld. And the Army won’t. Because its senior leaders are so sick with political correctness that pandering to America-haters is safer than calling terrorism "terrorism." And the media won’t. Because they have more interest in the shooter than in our troops ˜ despite their crocodile tears.>
    Maj. Nadal Malik Hasan planned this terrorist attack and executed it in cold blood. The resulting massacre was the first tragedy. The second was that he wasn’t killed on the spot. Hasan survived. Now the rest of us will have to foot his massive medical bills. Activist lawyers will get involved, claiming "harassment" drove him temporarily insane. There’ll be no end of trial delays. At best, taxpayer dollars will fund his prison lifestyle for decades to come, since our politically correct Army leadership wouldn’t dare pursue or carry out the death penalty. Maj. Hasan will be a hero to Islamist terrorists abroad and their sympathizers here. While US Muslim organizations decry his acts publicly, Hasan will be praised privately. And he’ll have the last laugh. But Hasan isn’t the sole guilty party. The US Army’s unforgivable political correctness is also to blame for the casualties at Ft. Hood . Given the myriad warning signs, it’s appalling that no action was taken against a man apparently known to praise suicide bombers and openly damn US policy. But no officer in his chain of command, either at Walter Reed Army Medical Center or at Ft. Hood , had the guts to take meaningful action against a dysfunctional soldier and an incompetent doctor. Had Hasan been a Lutheran or a Methodist, he would’ve been gone with the simoon. But officers fear charges of discrimination when faced with misconduct among protected minorities. Now 12 soldiers and a security guard lie dead. 31 soldiers were wounded, 28 of them seriously. If heads don’t roll in this maggot’s chain of command, the Army will have shamed itself beyond moral redemption. There’s another important issue, too. How could the Army allow an obviously incompetent and dysfunctional psychiatrist to treat our troubled soldiers returning from war? An Islamist whacko is counseled for arguing with veterans who’ve been assigned to his care? And he’s not removed from duty? What planet does the Army live on? For the first time since I joined the Army in 1976, I’m ashamed of its dereliction of duty. The chain of command protected a budding terrorist who was waving one red flag after another. Because it was safer for careers than doing something about him. Get ready for the apologias. We’ve already heard from the terroristâ•ÿs family that "he’s a good American." In their world, maybe he is. But when do we, the American public, knock off the PC nonsense? A disgruntled Muslim soldier murdered his officers way back in 2003, in Kuwait , on the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Recently? An American mullah shoots it out with the feds in Detroit . A Muslim fanatic attacks an Arkansas recruiting station. A Muslim media owner, after playing the peace card, beheads his wife. A Muslim father runs over his daughter because she’s becoming too Westernized. Muslim terrorist wannabes are busted again and again. And we are assured that "Islam is a religion of peace." I guarantee you that the Obama administration’s non-response to the Ft. Hood attack will mock the memory of our dead.

    I would be perfectly willing to chance losing my soul to give him the same chance he gave 55 other people. Enclose us both in a large mostly open compound with no way out. Give me 2 pistols, one 357 mag and one 9mm and 100 rounds, mostly 9mm, with lots of spare mags for the 9. Let what will be happen. He deserves nothing better, but plenty worse. I don't want to pay for this scum suckers life in prison or decades on death row.

    Ft. Hood survivors p/o'd that the military considers--read, Obama suggested--the situation a "workplace violence" episode instead of a terrorist event.

    Let's see....guy shooting people yelling "Allah akbar" vs. guy shooting people yelling "I'm frustrated at work, DIE mofos!". Difference?? Nah.

    Video: Fort Hood massacre aftermath footage released

    By PoliceOne Staff

    FORT HOOD, Texas — New footage has been released of the moments after the Fort Hood shooting that left 12 soldiers and one civilian dead, and many others wounded.

    The graphic video shows several bodies and chairs scattered on the ground surrounded by pools of blood as soldiers rush to each other’s aid just moments after Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, a psychiatrist practicing at Darnall Army Medical Center at Fort Hood, opened fire at a military processing center in November 2009.


    Dozens of victims of the massacre have now filed suit against the military, demanding it reconsider the attack's "workplace violence" designation, and consider it a terroristic attack.

    "Basically, they're treating us like I was downtown and I got hit by a car," Shawn Manning, who was shot six times at Fort Hood, told ABC.


    The Army has denied any neglect of the Fort Hood victims, citing ignorance:
    "If a soldier feels ignored, then we need to know about it on a case by case basis," Secretary of the Army John McHugh told ABC News. "It is not our intent to have two levels of care for people who are wounded by whatever means in uniform."

    Hasan is facing life without parole if convicted of the 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. A new judge has stepped in to consider defense requests to spare Hasan of the death penalty.
