Fort Hood Shooter Has Local Ties

Major Hasan, Army Psychiatrist From Silver SpringFthood

One of the shooters who killed 12 and injured 31 this afternoon at the Army’s Ft. Hood in Texas is from Bethesda, MD.

According to CBS News,  Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, was killed after he opened fire. Hasan is an Army mental health professional.  He is a drug and rehab specialist who has been practicing less than a year according to his Virginia Board of Medicine information.

A motive is unknown at this point and authorities are trying to determine if Hasan was his birth name or if he may have changed his name and converted to Islam.

Our general area is becoming a hotbed for violent connections. In October 2002 we had the Beltway Sniper (John Allen Muhammad) and just this past June, James Von Brunn opened fire at the Holocaust Museum in Washington killing a security guard.

The comments on CBS News are leaning very heavily to classifying this as an act of terrorism. What are your thoughts? Terrorism? An act of aggression? Or just a whacked out shrink gone amok?

    Shouting Allahu Akbar! might be a big clue. Plus the local Killeen Texas paper is reporting from his neighbors that he had been selling all his furniture, handing out Korans, and began wearing arab style garb. The media and the FBI are painting this as a disgruntled PTSD vet. But if it looks like a duck…

  2. SevernaPark Guy says:

    The same media that often refers to terrorists as “freedom fighters”? No way…they will shield “the One” from anyone insinuating that this attack was terrorism. But we know otherwise….

  3. G.P. says:

    This nut case acted alone and for whatever reason he chose to be an idiot, he chose it. Terrorism exsists everyday in the US and occurs 90% of the time by an American. Is that to say all Americans are violent or all of any group or religion are bad??? Nope, just the bad ones are bad. Sad sad story.
