UPDATE: Shlep Smith has the jihadi's cousin on the phone, Nader Hasan, and Schlep is lapping up the lies and he is doing the taqiya. Nader is saying the Malik was a great American. Hasan is saying that the mass murderer "was harassed" and that's why he methodically planned and executed this massive attack on a US military installation.
He was not a convert. He is a devout Muslim who joined the army with a purpose.
7:16 pm UPDATE: Malik Nadal Hasan, the jihadi who led the attack on Fort Hood, was quoted as saying "Muslims have the right to rise up against the US military" "The Muslims have a right to stand up against the aggressors" "Maybe we should have more of these where people strap bombs on themselves and go into Times Square" - this according to Col Terry Lee, who worked with Muslim convert.
No word on the two other suspects ..... something tells me they are not scientologists.
UPDATE: Unprecedented in American history.
Major General Robert Scales said he spoke to soldiers on the ground. This was "not the act of a crazy". This was not the random act of a nutcase. It was execution style, close range. He shot 44 - 50 rounds - that's a lot of ammunition to come out of those two guns in such a short period of time. This was premeditated. "A deliberate act of execution of the largest army base in America".
He was a psychiatrist. That's rich. Obama called it" a horrific act of violence". Obama just barely broke away from his tribal conference (did you hear his remarks after we had to sit through his tired well worn victimization of native Americans?) - and then finally, he made the most cursory of remarks. It was pathetic.
UPDATE: Here is the video. Watch your president after the worst act of war on the largest army base in American history. And Barack Hussein Obama gives a "Shout-Out" before he comments on the shooting.
A civilian policeman shot the Muslim terrorist Malik Nadal Hasan. The hero who shot him dead was killed in the ensuing gunfire.
Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson, R-Texas, told Fox News that military sources informed her that the gunman was about to be deployed to Iraq.
The shooter was killed and two other suspects, who are also soldiers, have been apprehended, Lt. Gen. Robert W. Cone said.
The general said there were "eyewitness accounts of more than one shooter," and the others were tracked to an adjacent facility.
Cone said that a gunman entered a facility known as the Soldier Readiness Facility, where soldiers who are preparing to deploy go for last minute medical check ups and dental treatment. Sources told ABC News that the soldiers gathered there were getting ready to deploy to Iraq.
The gunman used two handguns, Cone said. He wasn't sure if the shooter reloaded the weapons during the attack.
"The gunman opened fire and essentially due to the quick respond of the police forces was killed," said Cone.
The shooter was killed by civilian law enforcement and one police officer died in the shootout, Cone said.
The gunman's suspected accomplices were taken into custody in an adjacent facility known as the old SportsDome Complex.
UPDATE: FOX's SHLEP SMITH WON'T SAY HIS NAME, but will "connect
the dots". Which dots? That the reason this terror cell committed this
act of war was because "he didn't want to go to Iraq".
UPDATE: Shepard Smith won't utter Malik Nadal's Hasan's name! He won't say his name. The primary gunman. But wait -- he is making excuses for him. He is saying he didn't want to go to war.
Al Qaeda directed Muslims to infiltrate the military for these very attacks.
UPDATE: Shepard Smith, that silly woman, keeps calling it a tragedy. It is an act of war.
UPDATE: OMG, are you watching the news? Shep and the other flapping tongues speculating, "Was it stress?" "Did he not want to go to war?" "The men at Fort Hood are searching for a motive." "Did his deployment lead the officer to commit these acts"?
MUSLIM KILLER: The suspected gunman was identified as Major Malik Nadal Hasan.
UPDATE: The coverage is beyond stupid. Three men -- is a conspiracy. Three men is a terror cell. For the FBI to rule out terrorism in an obvious act of terrorism (by whom, we know not yet) indicates we are worse off than the UK. Three men, synchronized shooting, M16s, maximum kill ............ you won't get the real story from the media.
Did anyone see Obama at the tribal conference? Talk about making it up to the native Americans (????????) and then a lightweight, toss off ON THE MASS SLAUGHTER at Fort Hood.
UPDATE: FBI says it's not terrorism. Has the FBI hit the ground yet? How can they say that so fast? And frankly, this mass shooting is the very definition of terrorism. FBI asshattery. Obama is at a tribal conference (no joke). When the conference is over, he'll hold a press conference. Teleprompters and mirrors, man your stations.
can the FBI say it's not terrorism? It's three shooters with M16.
That's a conspiracy. Three shooters across seven buildings.
UPDATE: FBI is en route. Why the FBI? This is military. WTF? More Obama "law enforcement" asshattery?
UPDATE: Possibly 30 wounded at the largest military installation of its kind in the country.
One gunman was in custody and another was on the loose, local media reported. One station said there was a third shooter involved. It went down during graduation ceremony.
At least seven people have been killed and 12 others injured in a shooting at the Fort Hood military base in Texas, according to US media reports.
One person has been arrested and at least one more is reportedly on the loose. The base has been locked down.
NBC News network said the two suspects were in military uniform and that the shooter-at-large was believed to have a high-powered sniper rifle.
Fort Hood, located near the town of Killeen, is a large US military base.
Home to about 40,000 US troops, it lies halfway between Austin and Waco, about 60 miles (97 km) from each city.
It is not yet clear whether those reported killed and injured are civilians or military personnel.
Local congressman John Carter, speaking to NBC News, confirmed that there had been a shooting at the base, saying the gunfire had erupted during a graduation ceremony.
The BBC's Adam Brookes in Washington says there are military police and Swat teams on the scene, and the FBI is on the way. Schools in the area have also been locked down.
