Thoughts on the Fort Hood Massacre

Just in from the road.  This is horrible and more information is needed.   The shooter is being indentified as Major Malik Nadal Hasan.  Obvious correlations are being made on his name, however Malik isn't a a Islamic name, but more a name you find under Nation of Islam.

Some are suspecting that he simply snapped at the thought of going to Afghanistan, however this wouldn't be the case as he entered the soldier center where troops were being medically cleared for deployment.

We simply don't know the motive at this time, but I would wager it's a reprisal after the shooting of Luqman A. Abdullah. The feds issued a warning that such reprisals may take place this week and had good intel that threats were valid. Again, we simply don't know.

 More to come.

UPDATE:  Presser






UPDATE: Andy McCarthy:

 "Major Nadal Malik Hasan, a 39-year-old Muslim convert, was born and educated in Virginia. He is a psychiatrist who worked at Walter Reed for six years (and got a poor performance evaluation there). Hasan was transferred to Ft. Hood and worked at the psych ward there. He complained about deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. Fox has interviewed someone who worked with him at Ft. Hood (Terry Lee) who says he was a harsh critic of U.S. foreign policy who said Muslims had a right to stand up and fight against the aggressor in Iraq and Afghanistan — i.e., us."

 Apparently what we have here is an antiwar nut gone amuck.

 Waiting for the press to pick up the "Radical Left-Wing Nutcase goes Crazy"....(crickets...)

 Note that Obama spoke on the tragedy, but the real question for him is "Why the wait to send more troops". The untold story there is that with the lack of appropriate troop levels in Afghanistan rotations are more frequent thus more stress for the troops.

 Just a thought.


UPDATE: Shep Smith of Fox interviewed a co-worker of Hasan, give a listen.


Note: Report that the shooting was shouting "Alah Akbar" or something in Arabic while he was shooting.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
