MAJ. GEN. ROBERT SCALES (RET.) "This was a deliberate act of execution."
Scales says “not a conspiracy.” Three shooters = conspiracy by definition, I believe.
Of course it was. Expect a cover up at the highest level, though.
I just read that the officer was going to Iraq. This is horrible and a terrible shame that our men are not even safe in our country on an army base.
The shooters at Ft. Hood?
The death of the shooter at Ft. Hood? Is he accusing the MPs of executing the shooter?
Capt. Obvious over at the Alphabet Soup stations
Get ready for the whining “ Be careful that there is no backlash against our Muslims in the states!!!!”
Never the anger that American Muslims do not march en masse to DC to protest their Jihadi ‘brothers!”
Bret Baier is saying the shooter was shot by a local police officer who was also killed.
Wolf Blitzer just mentioned the Lone Nut theory again with a straight face.
Blitzer IS the NUT.
No, he said the killings were cold, executiion style and that he didn’t think it was a simple case of someone “snapping”.
I saw Scales say that on Fox. He also said methodical, the shooter went about his business in a calm and methodical fashion.
CBS News investigative producer Len Tepper reports that Hasan, 39, is a licensed psychiatrist from Silver Spring, Md.
Was it jawa’s? I haven’t heard anything yet - not watching tv.
As a Military Officer, the shooter knew the soldiers in that facility would be unarmed. He selected it for that very characteristic.
It was Islamic terrorism.
point is that this guy was not some crazy going “postal”
this was a “deliberate act”
Best coverage so far over on Drudge. The article featured in the center got to me. A retired officer said he thought it was a training exercise, then a young soldier ran past and said “Someone is shooting, Sir.” As he ran past the officer the officer said he saw blood running down the kid’s back. He said the kid didn’t even know he’d been shot. That got to me.
The shooter is not and was never a US soldier — a soldier, maybe, but not one of ours.
He was a Ft. Hood civilian cop. Most of the larger bases, since the massive reductions in forces in the early '90s, field both a military police force and a contracted civilian police force.
This was an act of terrorism..plain and simple. Most of us knew right off the bat that it was going to involve the ROP. I sent a text to my husband shortly after it was reported that it would be an islamist. This is what they have been threatening to do for some time if you follow the chatter. Let’s hope the other bases around the country are on alert.
Jihad within the ranks.
This Major Hasan was apparently fairly outspoke against Iraq and Afghanistan.
Does anyone remember the case of Sgt. Asan Akbar in 2003? He was the guy who fraged the command tent on the night of the invasion of Iraq killing two officers (one an Idaho Major) and wounding 14 others. He was ultimately sentenced to death and is awaiting appeal and carrying out of the sentence.
His own quotes included:
“I may not have killed any Muslims, but being in the Army is the same thing. I may have to make a choice very soon on who to kill. You guys are coming into our countries, and you’re going to rape our women and kill our children.”
I believe we will find that this is in a similar vein.
What would John Wayne do? </ nosacarasmatall>
and here with a pic:http://cstsonline.org/members/cstsmember-69_Hasan
He shot and killed a woman and child at the theater. This was a terrorist act against Americans.
FROM ATLAS SHRUGS:
MUSLIM TERROR ATTACK: ‘NINE shot dead’ 12 30 Wounded at Mass Shooting at Fort Hood, US Army Base, Primary Gunman, Malik Nadal Hasan is MUSLIM CONVERT
UPDATE: OMG, are you watching the news? Shep and the other flapping tongues speculating, “Was it stress?””Did he not want to go to war?”” The men at Fort Hood are searching for a motive. “Did his deployment lead the officer to commit these acts”?
IT’S THE JIHAD STUPID
UPDATE: FOX’s SHLEP SMITH WON’T SAY HIS NAME but will “connect the dots” Which dots? that the reason this terror cell committed this act of war was because “he didn’t want to go to Iraq”.
UPDATE Shepard Smith won’t utter Malik Nadal’s Hasan’s name! He won’t say his name. The primary gunman. But wait — he is making excuses for him. He is saying he didn’t want to go to war.
Al Qaeda directed Muslims to infiltrate the military for these very attacks.
UPDATE: Shepard Smith, that silly woman, keeps calling it a tragedy. It is an act of war.
MUSLIM KILLER: The suspected gunman was identified as Major Malik Nadal Hasan.
UPDATE: The coverage is beyond stupid. Three men — is a conspiracy. Three men is a terror cell. For the FBI to rule out terrorism in an obvious act of terrorism (by whom, we know not yet) indicates were are worse off tha the UK. Three men, synchronized shoting, M16s, maximum kill ............ you won’t get the real story from the media.
Did anyone see Obama at the tribal conference? talk about making it up to the native Americans (????????) and then a lightweight, toss off ON THE MASS SLAUGHTER at fort Hood
UPDATE: FBI says its not terrorism, Has the FBI hit the ground yet? How can they say that so fast? And frankly this mass shooting is the very definition of terrorism, FBI asshattery. Obama is at a tribal conference (no joke). When the conference is over, he’ll hold a press conference. Teleprompters and mirrors, man your stations.
How can the FBI say it’s not terrorism. It’s three shooters with M16. That’s a conspiracy. Three shooters across seven buildings.
UPDATE:FBI is en route. Why the FBI? This is military. WTF? More Obama “law enforcement” asshattery?
UPDATE: Possibly 30 wounded at the largest military installation of its kind in the country.
One gunman was in custody and another was on the loose, local media reported. One station said there was a third shooter involved. It went down during graduation ceremony.
‘Seven shot dead’ at US army base
At least seven people have been killed and 12 others injured in a shooting at the Fort Hood military base in Texas, according to US media reports.
One person has been arrested and at least one more is reportedly on the loose. The base has been locked down.
NBC News network said the two suspects were in military uniform and that the shooter-at-large was believed to have a high-powered sniper rifle.
Fort Hood, located near the town of Killeen, is a large US military base.
Home to about 40,000 US troops, it lies halfway between Austin and Waco, about 60 miles (97 km) from each city.
It is not yet clear whether those reported killed and injured are civilians or military personnel.
Local congressman John Carter, speaking to NBC News, confirmed that there had been a shooting at the base, saying the gunfire had erupted during a graduation ceremony.
The BBC’s Adam Brookes in Washington says there are military police and Swat teams on the scene, and the FBI is on the way. Schools in the area have also been locked down.
UPDATE: Check out the live chat on Fox Dallas/Fort Worth here.
Congressman John Carter(TX) says that the two suspects have been released and that the Army is looking for another suspect.
The Major was a mental health professional according to Cong Carter. He also was given info that two people were released while they are searching for another shooter.
No Muslims in our military and no more Muslim immigration.
No, no, no. Wolf Blitzer was just pontificating on how anyone could make it to the level of major with such a high level of PTSD, and saying “... there is no obvious motive yet, beyond insanity.”
Besides, the shooter was obviously Jewish or possibly Irish Catholic.
So a 'lone nut' has two helpers?!
In Blitzer's world it's the 'evil' Christians who are AMERICAN CITIZENS that are the enemy!
Look at the jack*ss SOME PEOPLE elected as President! He doesn't have a FREAKING CLUE about how to run a lemonade stand much less a country!
The world has gone INSANE!
I believe I heard one of the talking heads say that this man shot his own men. Can anyone confirm this??
The shooter was a psychiatrist recently reassigned from Walter Reed.
“He was a Ft. Hood civilian cop”
Off duty cop.
He could have easily been self-dispensing Prozac, or some other mind-altering psych drug. Most of the lunatic shooting sprees over the last decade have one thing in common, and that is, the shooters have nearly all been on anti-depressants.
Add to that, that he was probably also under the influence of Islam, and you've got a volatile combination.
He would saddle up and stop burning daylight!!
WHY DID boy zero GO SALUTE THE DEAD A WEEK AGO?
Sounds like at least one musi.
heard that too. posting is slow today.
There have been multiple reports that no children were killed. Don't know about the woman, though.
The hell with CAIR and the hell with a fear of any “backlash.” I don’t want to see it, because the innocent are often the ones that get hurt (like the poor Sikh guy that got gunned down in Arizona after 9/11), but dear God, how much are we supposed to take? A Muslim wounds and kills over forty American soldiers and civilians and we’re supposed to give a damn about a backlash?
Where did you hear or see that? The reports have all been that NO children were shot.
Kay Bailey Hutchinson just said, she heard that he was from JORDAN.
WHAT!! He killed a woman and child at a THEATER??? ARe you sure?? THIS killer today??
