Meanwhile, also at Fox, "George W. Bush Secretly Visits Fort Hood Victims":
Former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura secretly visited Fort Hood last night and spent "considerable time" consoling those who were wounded in Thursday's shooting spree, Fox News has learned.But note this from Reuters, "Obamas to attend Fort Hood memorial Tuesday." Better late than never, I guess. Or as Pamela suggests, "Obama's posse has announced he will go to Fort Hood next week. Not because he wants to, but because he was shamed into it. Disgusting."
The Bushes entered and departed the sprawling military facility in secret, having told the base commander they did not want press coverage of their visit, a source told Fox News.
The couple was described as "deeply concerned" about military families on Fort Hood after Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan allegedly opened fire on soldiers and civilians, killing 13 and wounding 38.
The Bushes, who have a 1,600-acre property known as Prairie Chapel Ranch less than 30 miles from Fort Hood in central Texas, spent between one and two hours visiting the wounded and their families.
No word yet from the Bush-haters at Firedoglake.
