Twelve Killed in Fort Hood Shootings‎: President Obama, 'A Horrific Outburst of Violence' - UPDATED!! Muslim Jihad in America!

UPDATED! See, "Jihadist Attack at Fort Hood! - Nidal Malik Hasan Said 'Muslims Should Rise Up' - U.S. Islamists, Leftists in Damage Control!."


From the Politico, "President Obama: Fort Hood Shooting 'Horrific'":

President Barack Obama promised "answers to every single question" about Thursday's shooting at Fort Hood after an attack by at least one U.S. service member that left 12 soldiers dead and 31 wounded.

Speaking at the Interior Department, Obama said he had already conferred with Defense Secretary Robert Gates about the attack and would continue to receive updates.

"We don't yet know all the details," Obama said. "What we do know is that a number of American soldiers have been killed and even more have been wounded in a horrific outburst of violence."

"These are men and women who have made the selfless and courageous decision to risk and at times give their lives to the rest of us on a daily basis," the president continued. "It is horrifying that they should come under fire at an Army base on American soil."

Obama's remarks came at the conclusion of the Tribal Nations Conference hosted by the Interior Department and the White House. He told his listeners – leaders from many of the 564 federally recognized American Indian tribes – that he had discarded his prepared comments in light of the breaking news.

"I planned to make some broader remarks," he said after brief introductory comments. "But as some of you might have heard there has been a tragic shooting at the Fort Hood Army base in Texas."

Added: From ABC News:

The suspected gunman was identified by ABC News as Major Nadal Malik Hasan, who is psychologist or a psychiatrist.

He was promoted to major status in May, according to the Army Times.

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.

What the hell was this Hasan character doing in the U.S. Army?

The more I am hearing, the more it sounds like this guy was yet another Islamic radical that has managed to infiltrate our military or convert once he got in, and has now killed other American soldiers.

How many more time are these camel-washers in our military going to blow up or shoot our soldiers before the idiot politicians and desk-driving military brass in Washington finally figure out that allowing them in our military may just not be a good idea?

What will it take? Sobotaging a submarime? Blowing up a carrier and sending it to the bottom? What?

Why don't we just go ahead and process those clowns at GITMO into the U.S. military.

Might as well.

Because Dave, filtering men/women who could serve in the Armed Forces by religion is infringing on their freedom. Besides, terrorist organizations could just as easily recruit anyone that is Christian, Jewish, Buddhist etc. to do their dirty work.
