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.

More Information on Fort Hood Shooting Suspect

Posted: Nov 05, 2009 6:07 PM CST
Updated: Nov 05, 2009 7:26 PM CST

Military officials say the suspected shooter at Fort Hood was a psychiatrist at Walter Reed Army Medical Center for six years before being transferred to the Texas base in July.

The officials had access to Maj. Malik Nadal Hasan's military record. They said he received a poor performance evaluation while at Walter Reed.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because military records are confidential.

Federal law enforcement officials say the Hasan came to their attention at least six months ago because of Internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other threats.

The Virginia-born soldier was single with no children. He was 39 years old.

He is a graduate of Virginia Tech University, where he was a member of the ROTC and earned a bachelor's degree in biochemistry in 1997. He received his medical degree from the military's Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Md., in 2001. At Walter Reed, he did his internship, residency and a fellowship.

Reportedly, a poor review.

With his attitude, it’s not hard to believe he
would’ve been expressing the same opinions up
there .. and possibly engaging in verbal warfare
about the wars.

I thought that the third shooter suspect was taken into custody, very shortly after they released those 2 soldiers.

Not often, but occasionally.

No, his first 56 statements were about him and how he was going to stop racism, then he mentioned the shootings.

This guy should have been thrown out years ago. How can you have a terrorist sympathizer counseling soldiers coming back from killing terrorists?? PCism gone amok.

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.

I just turned back to Fox, though.

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.
