2 confirmed shooters possible 3rd

I doubt that this is 2 or 3 random GI’s who “snapped” in unison, although I’ll bet the press and obama will do their damdnest to make it into a fraudulent “teaching moment” and fodder for slander to every extent they can

I can’t help but wonder if this is terrorism. Otherwise it’s impossible to grasp..

Will the Left remember this attack decades later they way they still mark and write about the Kent State shootings?

Coordinated attack.

Nothing to do with stress.

Sounds like the Ft. Dix animals who planned an attack on that NJ base.

Sometimes, not following the obvious response gives great insight into the heart of the commander, in this case the CinC.

Calmly stated, the obvious response is to take the battle to the enemy.

Me too. Bugs me big time.

One of the FIRST things Steve Centani said was, could be post traumatic stress......COMMON among Iraq/Afghanistan vets.

It's completely irresponsible. TERRIBLE.

“At least 7 reportedly killed in shooting at Fort Hood army base in Texas”
680News staff and CNN | Thursday, November 5th, 2009 3:36 pm

SNIPPET: “TEXAS - At least 7 people have been reported dead and as many as 20 wounded, after a mass shooting took place shortly before 3:30 p.m., Thursday at Fort Hood military base in Texas.

According to CNN, there were two shooters in the army base and one of the suspects is in custody.”

“Other bases around the country should be alert in case this part of a bigger thing.”

That was my first thought. If this is ROP, they don’t like to do things one off - they like coordination.

When has that ever stopped CNN? How long until they mention "gun show loopholes"?

the uniform only means they are wearing camouflage. NBC doesnt know a uniform from a hole in the ground.

They also consider every long rifle a sniper rifle. if its black then its an assault weapon.

This smells like a terrorist attack. Using a TEXAS military base as a symbolic attack on Bush.

Just my opinion based on limited information. Would not surprise me, though, as terrorists have attempted to do the same at Fort Dix in New Jersey a couple years ago.

Time will tell...

Early report of a third shooter in a different location (near the PX), began shooting after the first onslought with 7 dead.

It was a coordinated attack on different parts of the base simultaneously? It sounds like Columbine.

That’s why I hate to see police and fire gear

and fatigues in thrift and Army/Navy stores.
Too easy for the wackos to impersonate them.

What did the reporterette say when Shep asked about the description? What word did she say?

Have we confirmed this was Muslims or Baracks National Security Force (SS)?

Shades of the Mumbai attack. Different groups all shooting.
I was supposed to go to Mumbai on business next week..and was thinking about it, because the Taj hotel is still not reopened for business. Now my trip has been delayed.

The fact that there are three indicates that there is no way they are anything but a terrorist group with a concerted attack on our military.

That's MY "speculation."

“If this a terror attack, then they would probably have obtained uniforms.”

Sure...you can buy them anywhere. What really angers me is that airline pilot uniforms, hats and all... can be purchased on ebay. And, after having worked for the airlines, ID cards are a joke. Can be duplicated or created.

“Soldier Readiness Center” I would assume that is a mental health facility? Sounds like a Soldier snapped?. If the rumors are true about there being two shooters...well all bets are off.

It sounds like a marshaling area ready for troop deployment or "The Readiness Center will provide administrative, training and supply space..."

3 Shooter according to Fox now. Nuns attack? How about those crazy Amish? /Sarc

“Fox is notorious for running with the rumors.”

Only among the MSM who consider “fake but accurate” to be the standard.

7 Dead, 15 Or More Wounded In Shooting On Fort Hood; Schools Locked Down

Schools in the Fort Hood area are locked down after a shooting on post that left seven dead and 15 or more injured. Two and possibly three gunmen were involved and only one is confirmed to be in custody.
Posted: 2:00 PM Nov 5, 2009

FORT HOOD (November 5, 2009)-Army officials have confirmed a mass shooting on Fort Hood.

The Associated Press reports that seven are dead and 15 more are injured, but other reports place the number of injured as low as 12 and as high as 20.

There are also confirmed reports that a police officer was shot in a post exchange, but other details weren’t available.

All available ambulances and paramedics in the area were responding to post.

The shooting happened in on Battalion Avenue.

Fort Hood is shut down and no one is being allowed on or off post.

Killeen ISD officials say all nine schools on post are on lock down because of the situation.

Temple ISD reports they are on a “soft” lock down in connection with the Fort Hood.

“Temple Police Department requested Temple ISD place all campuses and district buildings in a soft lockdown, due to a situation at Fort Hood, TISD spokesperson Regina Corley told News 10 by news release.

This is not sounding good.

The local Congresscritters just
mentioned 50,000 at the base.

AP confirms: 7 dead, 20 wounded

In reality it is big, because an attack on a US Military base SHOULD be viewed as an act of war.

But, the current leadership will treat it as a law enforcement matter, “prosecute” the perps, and call it “doing something about it”.

“civilian guns are strictly prohibited on military bases.”

In my day they were stored in the armory if you lived in the barracks on post.....living off-post with them was a different matter, but even then, you could elect to store them in your units armory if you wished

Newer reports that there is one suspect in custody, one suspect is surrounded, and a THIRD suspect is still loose and still shooting. Now reading reports of as many as 20 injured. This is bad and getting worse.

Usually, the jihadis end up dead not captured which makes this seem like something else. OTOH, it appears 3 individuals are involved which makes it a coordinated action along the lines of some type of terror operation. Plus, ACUs are easy to come by (I can get plenty at a local thrift store).

Prays for the victims and that all involved are apprehended.
