Twelve people have been killed and 31 wounded in a shooting spree at a Texas military base by what officials believe was possibly carried out by an Army officer.
The suspected gunman was identified by ABC News as Major Malik Nadal Hasan.
The shooter was killed and two other suspects, who are also soldiers, have been apprehended, Lt. Gen. Robert W. Cone said.
The gunman used two handguns, Cone said. He wasn't sure if the shooter reloaded the weapons during the attack.
Gates has plenty to answer for this. IMO.
ping my post 1970, audio report only no link yet
I don't know why, but Fox has been running behind the latest info by at least a couple hours all day. CNN has been kicking Fox's butt.
PROTECT OUR TROOPS!!
That was shocking too. To see how he switched emotions so fast.
Bush was a calming, resolved response after 911. I hate to even think it but Obama gave me a sinking feeling that he felt nothing concerning our tragedy.
Somebody needs to be looking for this guy’s ‘Obama page’. He was obviously a supporter of Hussein and I’d bet a steak dinner that he had his own ‘mybarackobama’ page and/or dealings with his campaign.
wonder what his DU and Kos screennames are....
You are why we love FR! Classic!
Pray for America and Ft Hood
God Almighty, this is a nightmare. OUR BELOVED AMERICAN SOLDIERS WERE SLAUGHTERED TODAY AND ZERO bloviates for over 2 min! I am sickened beyond belief. Lord, lift these great soldiers to your gentle lap today.
What is next? Don’t tell me anyone not to be afraid, because I am! Lord have mercy on our souls!
And you’re yelling because . . . ?????
0bama felt nothing? Not so. I am sure that he was gratified that his Muslim bro did a good job on the hated military. Haven’t you read the one surviving article that 0bama ever wrote? Some paper from college. Very poorly written screen pissing on the military.
I guess they can do something .01 percent right once in awhile. :-)
He likes Dead American soldiers, he saluted one.
Pray for America and Our Troops
ok. I’ll say it again... Gen.Honore or whatever his name is is on CNN talking about PTSD. This murderer had never been deployed!
It’s opposite news day. I’ve not had cnn on tv in YEARS.
Oh yeah he does- to say NOTHING of the CO of the med unit at Ft Hood. That is a pair of shoes I wouldn’t want to be in tonight. Some careers should/will end because of this carnage.
I'd rather keep it on mute and look at O'Reilly than hear leftists talking about our soldiers.
This had NOTHING to do with PTSD. This guy was a Muslim who didn't want the U.S. military to be fighting his brothers. (The strange thing is, is that what the U.S. military is doing is SAVING their LIVES).
ROANOKE’S KING OF HOT DOGS DOESN’T WANT A QUEEN
Roanoke Times, The (VA) - Wednesday, May 16, 1990
Author: ED SHAMY
There’s a royal weiner war brewing in downtown Roanoke, and it could boil over by the weekend.
The titanic tube steak struggle pits the reigning king of dogs - the Roanoke Weiner Stand - against an upstart queen.
Just a few hundred feet from the weiner stand, which boasts itself “The Hot Dog King,” a new business opens late this week or early next. The Hot Dog Queen will peddle - you guessed it - hot dogs from its storefront opposite Fire Station No. 1.
All of which leaves Gus Pappas with a bad aftertaste, and even scholars with brains soft as fresh buns will understand why.
“I knew it was going to be there,” Pappas said Tuesday. “But I didn’t know the name.”
Then he called his lawyer.
Gus Pappas has a lot at stake. The Roanoke Weiner Stand (the king) has stood, usually tall, on the City Market since 1916. In Roanoke, a tender shoot of a city, 74 years loom as an eternity. As the Duke of Dogdom, Pappas’ job is to preserve the integrity of the institution.
Part of that task includes crushing any opposition that surfaces, like a bobbing frankfurter in a pot of boiling water, within the kingdom. The idea here isn’t to gently nudge aside fledgling would-be sausageurs.
The idea is to slice and dice royal hot dog impostors into a quivering pile of so many piggies-in-a-blanket.
“It ain’t the competition. I had a guy two inches from me and he went out, selling just hot dogs,” said Pappas. The king takes no prisoners.
It’s the name. It’s the logo, too. Roanoke Weiner Stand uses a crown. Hot Dog Queen, just two blocks away, will use a crown, too.
Malik Hasan is the entrepreneur behind the upstart queen dogs. He runs the Capital Restaurant on Market Street. He has ordered up a bunch of Hot Dog Queen hats, shirts and aprons, emblazoned with the crown emblem. He has a neon sign.
People already have asked him if he’s affiliated with the hot dog king down the street.
“I tell them no. But I’ll be cheaper,” says Hasan , the up-and-coming weiner prince.
“All the people from banks and the government buildings walk right past here to go to Hot Dog King or to the market. I can catch them before they get there,” he says.
Hasan also can catch railroad workers, if Norfolk Southern ever builds its office across Church Street.
Hasan grins coyly when you ask if his new venture is calculated to play on the Hot Dog King’s success.
“It’s just a nice name,” says Hasan , the queen.
“He’s leaning on somebody else’s reputation,” counters Pappas, the king. “We gotta notify the public that it’s not the Roanoke Weiner Stand. He’s gonna do pretty well for a while - until people see his quality ain’t the same.”
Of course, the king may not have the patience to let the experiment run its course.
“If it’s not legal, let him say it in front of the judge,” says Pappas. In other words, the king shoves the queen into the alligator-infested moat and hoists the drawbridge.
“It’s legal,” says Hasan . “I already registered the name.”

IF it IS PTSD, could be the bystander kind. Picked it up from the stories of those that he has treated who have it. But I think it has more to do with his religion.
