(CNN) -- An owner of a 7-Eleven convenience store in Fort Hood, Texas, said Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan came in for coffee and hashbrowns most mornings, including the morning he allegedly shot dozens of soldiers.
Surveillance video from the store obtained by CNN shows a man who, according to the store owner, is Hasan at the cashier's counter at about 6:20 a.m. Thursday (7:20 a.m. ET) -- about seven hours before the mass shooting -- carrying a beverage and dressed in traditional Arab garb.
"He looked normal, came in had his hashbrowns and coffee as you see in the surveillance video," the owner told CNN.
Another surveillance video from the store on Tuesday showed the man believed to be Hasan in scrubs.
While the owner said he was too busy to chat with Hasan whom he knows as "Major Nidal" on Thursday, he said that through his brief talks with Hasan he learned the officer's background was Jordanian, though he didn't speak Arabic well. He added that Hasan didn't wear a wedding ring and joked several times on whether the owner knew a bride for him.
Hasan would also ask the owner whether he planned to attend Friday prayers, a mainstay of Islam, to which the owner would say that he was too busy.

The idiot spokesman was asked if the attack was terrorism. He said the evidence didnt point to that.
I hope he gets well so we can execute him.
Not me , This clown needs to die now.
We dont need to listen to press reports of this guy and his terrible victimisation ,suffering at the hand of Americans who teased him about wearing his Muslim costumes on base.
We dont need the expense of his recovery, nor his trial.
We need one good American placing a clothes pin over the tube supplying his oxygen.
People like this guy exist as momentary ruptures in the psychic collective unconscious. He defines the fact of arbitrary perception and intellectual meaninglessness. He makes my point that “western Civilization” or “secularism” or “religion” are going nowhere and appear founded on faulty logic, faulty understanding of human nature, reality and existence. Utopia will not come now or ever and his illusion that he could find it in himself via murder or that he could find it in some cause or that anything has any meaning for that matter was what made him into a jackass and a fool, but he could have used that perspective to persuade himself to do it, though if he had any guts he would have quietly done himself off, why does this pathetic waste of life have to ruin other people’s lives? What can one gain from this? He probably felt sympathy with muslim radicals and therefore could feel a sense of meaning though it hardly seems sane to a balanced perspective, he just couldn’t handle it, maybe he was weak minded, or maybe others made him feel so, like those kids in the “Columbine MAssacre”? Whatever the case may be the notion that he could have worked as a secret agent for Islam, or a double agent like the hijackers on 911, should be investigated, he clearly was in close proximity to the White House for many years, and this reminds me of those sniper guys from a few years ago.
Store worker (the guy behind the counter), not store owner. Sorry about that.
Political correctness is going to kill all of us.
How many of these timebombs do we have serving in uniform in our military? And how many are in positions where they can sabotage our troops in combat? And how many of our troops have been killed because some Muzzie officer provided info to terrorists about their missions or positions?
I like the suggestion of boycotting muslim owned stores. IF there are in fact some peaceful muslims, maybe if they take a hit in the pocketbook, they’ll start to take a stand
against the extremeists.
Hey, I can dream.......
HE IS A MUSLIM TERRORIST
We should bounce every Muslim out of the Military right now.
First heard of the shootings late last night. My first reaction was wondering if the last name was arabic and/or if the shooter was muslim. Call me a bigot I guess, but after so much violence from these folks you become conditioned to expect such things.
If he was being taunted by others he needed to wake up and smell the coffee. YOU CAN NOT have the respect of your military peers when you’re trying to sue to avoid deployment. YOU WILL NOT have respect of your military peers when we are fighting muslims and you go around dressed like the enemy and apologizing for them. Sorry Charlie, you should have quit and moved on. Your rampage against good soldiers PROVED that you and your death-cult religion are the problem.
I hope for his full recovery so that he may face a military court, his victims, and ultimately a rope waiting to strangle the last breath out of him.
Agreed. At the time that I heard they were looking for people that speak Arabic and Farsi to be translators, I wondered how they thought they could possibly trust them. A daily dose of sodium pentathol?
Get them out. Get them all out.
I can’t wait for Obama to forgive him as he does for My Country. Political correctness mentioned in earlier posts, of which I agree. I’d go a step farther by Outlawing all Mushlim’s and their phony faith.
And it was on President Fluke's watch....imagine that!
Idiot spokesman claims no evidence?
How about the allah akbar the gunman kept shouting....more than one witness reporting this now. Heard on 770a.m. Imus
“CBS News correspondent Sheila MacVicar reports that the man is wearing a shalwar kameez - long robes far more common in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
He is also wearing white, which in Islam is associated with death or mourning. The prayer cap on his head is also more closely associated with Southeast Asia than with the Arab world. “ http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/11/06/national/main5548029.shtml
I saw the video on the news in Australia!
Sounds like obama didn't get that memo either.
On a form filled out by those seeking spouses through a program at the mosque, Hasan listed his birthplace as Arlington, Va., but his nationality as Palestinian, Khan said.
IMO he's ARAB if he described himself as 'palestinian'
something strange about that story; he wore his uniform to the mosque and yet he's shown in islamic garb on the base.
I wonder if he it was a pre-terrorism ritual for him that a.m.? I wonder if he shaved his body hair before the attack?
