Skip to comments.Fort Hood soldier describes horrific scene to family in Utah (Shooter shouted Allah Akbar)
Posted on 11/05/2009 9:45:02 PM PST by lady lawyer
The news of the mass shooting at Fort Hood Thursday hit close to home for some Utahns. One man says his daughter heard the shooter exclaim "Allah Akbar" as he opened fire.
We want to stress that no government or military officials are reporting that and there is no way for us to independently confirm that it is true.
The family from northern Utah agreed to talk to us, on the condition we not identify them and blur out some photos they've supplied, because they're worried their daughter could get in trouble with her superiors for making public what she told her family she saw.
The soldier's father says his daughter was at Fort Hood Thursday when the shooting happened, and she called him, frantic and upset, soon after.
"She said, Dad, I'm OK. Don't worry, I'm OK.' And initially I said, What are you talking about?' She said, Haven't you heard?' And I said, No.' And she said, We've been attacked by terrorists,'" the father explained.
He told KSL News soldiers were sitting in a staging area for medical and dental checks when the group was startled by gunfire.
"A person behind counter stood up, and he said, Allah Akbar!' And just opened up on everybody," the father told us.
It means "Run like hell and take refuge in the nearest safe hardened shelter you can find."
Or, as the Big Voice blares when the C-RAM goes off,
"Take cover, take cover, take cover."
FReepers will declare jihad on you for such.
Oh, it’s Allah Akbar. I always thought they were shouting...Allah’s Snackbar.
Pork rinds for everyone!
Just a shout out for putting in his request for 72 virgins.
Please! We must be fair! To do that we should behead him, drag his naked body through the streets of the city, then hang him and set his body on fire. Of course hanging a person without a head is not easy but it can be done.
That is what they do to ours so we should be fair and return the favor.
Apparently the link is now scrubbed/dead. That just happened over the past few months. Very graphic video on projections of Islam in the US and it’s intentions for ‘us’
Here is a link.
Hunt said his son told him he loaded up many of the wounded and drove them to the hospital. The wounded relayed what they saw inside when the shooting happened.
They were telling him that one guy was shouting something in Arabic while he was shooting, Tom Hunt said. He couldnt say much more than that.
Shiela Hunts first word about the shooting came from her husband, who called to tell her he had just spoken with their son and that he was all right.

NO other way to describe what I’ve called “Sudden Jihadi Syndrome” except to call it freelance terrorism. And although I suspect this is what this case is, freelance terrorism, rather than him being part of a terrorist organization, it is terrorism nonetheless, an event done to terrorize people in the name of a cause.
I know that Pres. G.W. Bush would not have been able to hold back the tears at such a press conference.
Maj Hasan, aged 39, was a military psychiatrist and was reportedly due to be sent on a mission to Iraq.
His cousin said Maj Hasan - a US-born Muslim - had been resisting such a deployment.
“He hired a military attorney to try to have the issue resolved, pay back the government, to get out of the military. He was at the end of trying everything,”
Forcing someone to fight their co-religionists when they object is not a very smart move - especially when dealing with Islam.
You mean the poor Muslim was harassed by the crude bigoted barbarians and got pushed over the edge by their cruelty?
At least 20 or 25% of the military voted for 0bama (probably quite a few are sorry about it by now). You think they’re all harassed?
Are you an emissary of the SRM?
I think that came from his parents.
I am so very sorry. Prayers.
Yeah! What Velveeta said!!! When I saw your name I went - JustPiper! And took a look at your profile page. It’s been a while since I’ve seen you on FR, I’ve had my absences too.
Yeah, possibly. Lots of Arabs are Christians who have fled persecution in Muslim dominated nations in the Middle East.
I worked with two engineers who were from Lebanon, both Christian, and a Syrian who was Christian.
Yes, my “god is great”, so I mass murder people by the thousands in his name. He is so powerful that I must surprise them when they are unarmed to kill them in his name. He is so loving that I must mutilate my wife, so she won’t enjoy sex. He is so caring that I must deny the girls in my community access to schools after the third grade. He is so proud of his creation that my wife must hide behind a veil for the rest of her life. He is so compassionate my wife must be stoned if she is raped by another believer.
All this is so wonderful, I must label others who don’t believe in it, infidels.
Yes, Allah Akbar.
May fleas be upon him...
I believe the shooter set it up to perfection. Laid the groundwork in advance....”I don’t want to be at war and they picked on me because of my religion.”
(Meanwhile, he let his anger at America show in his actions and words.)If he was upset about being deployed he would have discussed it with his family but they didn’t even know he was being deployed according to the cousin.
They probably knew he was getting ready to yell Allah Akbar though. I also heard reports of shots fired in various locations on the base which sounds like more than one person aka a terrorist attack. (I can’t imagine that all of the military men and women in that room would have laid down and played dead knowing if he left there he could shoot other friends and family members.)
If our Muslim leader wanted to tell the “free press” and the military officers do NOT report this, we don’t want a backlash against the fine Muslims in our country. Would that surprise anyone? Who was it that said, “If the winds change I will stand with the muslims”?
Also concerned about the timing. Do you suppose a Physchiatrist would know that there were protests scheduled across the US both at the capital and in individual states to publicly state our displeasure about the Pelosi/Obama Healthcare takeover?
Yup, that’s the non-terrorist event I was talking about.
The ailiner was an Egyptian ariliner and it was out of Canada.
It may be translated loosely as
“Beware what you say, when, and to whom”
I believe this is good advice these days.
I had originally thought to use
“Caeci caecos ducentes”
Blind are led by the blind. Leaders are not more knowledgeable than the ones they lead
But it seemed a but too.... lets say, obtuse, for FR.
“Cave ab homine unius libri”
Beware of anyone who has just one book
has its own merits.
Thanks for asking, it seems odd that with all the old school Catholics around, we don’t see more Latin (Classic) quotes and sayings.
The Romans had a lot to say that is cogent for today.
Peace my FRiend, have a good weekend.
Yes, there’s a link at post 109.
Alan Colmes spent his evening defending this nut and all other Muslims. He accused everyone that called in of being a bigot and hung up on them.
this man should be publicly hanged , not imprisoned and
not given trial . He was caught in the act .Hang him right away .
It’s Amish for something or other.
Another stellar moment in American history, compliments of our clueless President and his “kiss a Muslim today” strategy. Will Obama send his “terrorist-friendly” interrogation squad to question Hasan, candies, flowers and all?
God , I hate those words , anyone that utters them should be immediately killed
Shep was likely trying to get someone to say the killer was shouting, “I have been deployed to Iraq 912 times & now every face I see looks like the face of that war criminal, George W Bush!”
You forgot, “He is so compassionate that we should lock in little screaming Saudi girls inside a burning girls school even to their scorching deaths so they can’t get out, because they dont have head coverings on in such an emergency”.
Please think - I would not have made my post if I did not beleive otherwise. Not everything is as it seems.
Your statement “There is no patriotic argument to be made for withholding such information” seems overly harsh - even Generals must obey oders, unless such orders are illegal.
This is still an evolving story and Lt General Lynch is, to my knowledge, an honorable man and an Engineer by trade. Engineers deal in facts, because lives depend on them.
He has commanded in combat, is Airborne (you DID see his jump wings, yes?) and has a history for dealing with the press....
Perhaps you could look up his bio, and search for the stories when he spanked the press asshats in Iraq....
I can buy into that. I’ll have to remember that the next time I get set to use that line.
Hope all is well with you over there.
Yeah, well I can’t remember them all... ;-)
Last I saw, Medicl MAjors did not carry M4s and kick doors.
However, shooting Gomers off the wire might have happened.... he shudda stayed out of the Army.
I’m always fascinated about such representations, because it couldn’t be more inaccurate. If evil were repulsive humans wouldn’t find it attractive.
Lucifer was a fallen angel, beloved of God and beautiful. It is how evil entraps humans. It is so lovely and feels so good - how can it possibly be wrong?
SUDDEN JIHAD SYNDROME
Placing ANY of the blame for this coward's evil deeds on ANYTHING other than the coward's own shoulders is just plan disgustingly idiotic!!!
Huh i wouldn’t translate Allah by God !
Allah is Allah! Not GOD for me
Were you referring to the man in post 126? / lol / joking
One SARIN attack on the subway system here, and watching the New York Towers fall eight years ago, will do that to a country. Japanese learn from their and others mistakes, generally, and usually get it right the first time.
So there are 13 killed! What a crying shame.
I only hope this guy lives and pulls through for two reasons : a) to get as much information about him and trace him to any accomplices, and b) to then be able to have him executed on US government terms. Until then, he can afford to suffer a bit. Scumbag.
So when they ‘off’ the ignorant, unwashed infidel by beheading them after they have tortured and mutilated their bodies...they are just extending an extra measure of ‘kindness’ to these poor ignorant, unwashed infidels so that Allah might feel a mite more sympathy toward them?
had this occured in a civilian shopping mall, people would be much freeer to give eyewitness accounts.
I sure hope there is not a conspiracy to cover up the motives of this evil man, but from the sound of it, sounds like the (military) fix may already be in and direct orders are being given, wich will have to be obeyed:
"The family from northern Utah agreed to talk to us, on the condition we not identify them and blur out some photos they've supplied, because they're worried their daughter could get in trouble with her superiors for making public what she told her family she saw."
Actually, that "planet" is Gehenna.
This is truly from Satan.
