FORT HOOD, Texas A U.S. Army hospital spokesman said the man suspected in a deadly shooting spree at Fort Hood is conscious and able to talk.
Dewey Mitchell, a spokesman at Brooke Army Medical Center, said Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan remains in stable condition. Mr. Mitchell said Maj. Hasan has been awake and able to talk since he was taken off a ventilator Saturday.
Maj. Hasan is at Brooke Medical Center in San Antonio, about 150 miles southwest of Fort Hood.
Authorities say the 39-year-old Maj. Hasan opened fire at a processing center Thursday at Fort Hood, the country's largest military installation. Thirteen people were killed and 30 were wounded.
The rampage ended when civilian police shot Maj. Hasan.
Army officials said their investigators increasingly believe that Maj. Hasan was the lone gunman in the carnage. "Right now we're operating on the belief that he acted alone and had no help," said a military official familiar with the Army Criminal Investigation Division probe.
To help settle the question more definitively, the official said, military investigators were trying to determine where Maj. Hasan had purchased his handguns and the large quantity of ammunition used in the attack.
At least one weapon, an expensive semiautomatic handgun, came from gun store Guns Galore in Killeen, where the Army base is located, law-enforcement officials said. A person who answered the phone at the store Friday said it was cooperating with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and had been asked by law-enforcement officials not to comment.
Military and civilian law-enforcement authorities are examining Maj. Hasan's phone and computer records to see if he had communicated with any extremist elements in the days before the attack, according to a military official familiar with the matter.

Naw, he’s saying “I’m not worried, I know my brother Muslim Hussein, the President, has my back”.
What do you want to bet that when Obama goes to Fort Hood, he will have a private meeting with muslim?
Use that against him. Bring in the 72 entrants in the latest Helen Thomas lookalike contest, have them strip and dance suggestively before him, and he’ll talk in no time. Way more effective than waterboarding.
"Allahu Akbar! ... Why didn't I see any virgins?"
Unless you count 40 years of leftist indoctrination, an inept, politically correct military hierarchy who ignored all common sense in front of them, an entire political party, and their marxist leader. Otherwise, yeah, completely alone.
Very good. Bravo!
Evil muslims in our military need to be deported to iran
Any one of the other hundreds of embedded enemy arrested?
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
President Ronald Reagan
Hopefully, his talking is improved by “verbal suggestions to remove the painkiller IV drip. Lying motionless,unable to move in excruciating pain can really focus a mind.
I bet the opposite..Zero has thrown him under the camel. (and he’s at BAMC now, not FT Hood)...But I am sure the desire is there.
Imagine the pucker’s costernation if they tell him he was shot by a woman cop!
It is too bad the FBI will get involved.
He should be court-martialed, and sentenced. There are witnesses. There’s no doubt whatsoever.
Pour oil down his throat.....

Quote of the day,,,
How long till he gets to start “praying” again with the imam of his choice? We wouldnt let Nazi prisoners have a copy of Mien Kampf, so why a koran for him?
