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?
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.
One of the FIRST things Steve Centani said was, could be post traumatic stress......COMMON among Iraq/Afghanistan vets.
It's completely irresponsible. TERRIBLE.
!!!!! on all your points.
I was just going to post hope everyone is on heads up.
“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.
Shep has already hinted that it could be one of our own due to battle fatigue...what a prick!
Well then I’m right there with you as I was thinking the exact same thing.
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.
The guys who captured Saddam Hussein were from Ft Hood. Prayers to all.
I was a woman on CNN, Barbara, I forgot her last name, you should have seen the expression on her face. She had to hold back from smiling and talking about the stress from being in the military. She looked like she wanted to jump out of her skin and yell “Yippee”
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...
It was a coordinated attack on different parts of the base simultaneously? It sounds like Columbine.
I noticed they finally stopped yakking about PTSD when it was reported that there were 3 gunmen.
That’s why I hate to see police and fire gear
and uniforms, anti-toxin suits and military uniforms
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)?
The shootings at Luby’s?
I heard Shep. He needs to quit.
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.
If there are 2 or 3 shooters this is BIG
He’s watching his HBO special.
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.
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.
Yeah..sounds like something to get the Protest in DC off the front pages. Coordinated, no doubt. But by whom?

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 werent 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.
It has to be. I was thinking a Weather Underground type of group.
I know you’re right, Tank.
Prayers up for all involved.
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”.
Update .. 7 dead and 20 wounded......
7 dead 20 wonded! WOW!
Battle fatigue???? Two shooters, possibly a third according to a poster on this thread - Battle fatigue???? Since when does PTSD or battle fatigue happen in twain or in groups?
“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
Bushs ranch is about an hour from there.
I just noticed something bizarre — I’ve not yet heard anyone state, “This is NOT a terrorist attack,” — isn’t that normally one of the very first things said?
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.
Good grief. She's at it again. stress, stress, young, young. It's ridiculous.
Prays for the victims and that all involved are apprehended.
Prayers indeed...hope they’re safe.
I tend to agree with you...
UPDATE: 20 wounded per AP..
This is simply beyond belief.
If there are 2 or 3 shooters this is BIG
