No real details there yet, except this:

“One of the gunmen is in custody.”

That report says that one gunman is in custody and another “is cornered.”

“He said it is too soon to tell whether there is any link to battle stress or repeated deployments.”

There they go, immediately assuming that the shooters HAD to be our guys. It doesn’t seem to occur to them that it wouldn’t be hard for terrorists to acquire and wear US military clothing to not draw attention.

Oh how I loathe our media.

Lt. General Bob Cone of Fort Hood just gave a press conference and he stated that the gunman who is now dead was a US soldier; he MAY have had 2 accomplices, both of them are also US soldiers.

He explained no further.
