How completely awful! I have a friend stationed there...I need to call her!

They just released the shooter's name:Malik Nadal Hassan, a major in the Army?

Dang, I wish it had been anyone else because all the muslim/arab/brown person hate just keeps coming back.

They're asking that people text loved ones and not call because the airways are jammed. You can also visit www.safeandwell.org to check up on people's saftey. It's run by the red cross.
hello.world.
Ugh, when I saw his name, I thought, "Oh damn it, here we go!" They are also reporting that he may be from Jordan originally.

They had a congresswoman from Texas on CNN, and she mentioned that they were looking into every aspect of his life, and mentioned investigating whether there was some plan to infiltrate our military. Jeez. You know there are folks right now thinking that very thing. Did she have to say that on TV?

So unbelievable and sad. Prayers to all the victims and families.
Don't let your heart be broken. Let it love.
I read that the shooter was an army shrink...
No MAS.

Yep, Phoenix, hubby & I were discussing that & he said the same thing...wow
He was an army psychiatrist.
He was American (even in the dumb MSNBC since of the word...."born and raised).
Apparently CNN is reporting he was harrased for his ethnicity, some of his colleagues have said this is a total surprise, BUT they're also reporting that he was being watched for posting on the internet somewhere about suicidal rampages.

Don't know why he wasn't confronted about this!

And I am so sick of people (i.e., CNN getting false reports from representatives who know not of what they speak) assuming based on how someone looks and their name that they're not American.

Because who goes guns blazing on a military base thinking they are going to survive? And he targeted people he knew, which points away from "middle eastern muslim whacko out to kill anonymous American strangers" and towards "disturbed american soldier kills colleagues on hit list".

I am so so sorry all of these people died because he lost it and didn't get the help he obviously needed. My heart goes out to the families.

There's a live press conference going on right now, and a general just stated that the shooter was shot by authorities but was NOT killed and is in stable condition.
WTF?

People are going off on Larry King over this.

This is a tradegy. I don't even know what to say except that I'm sorry for those people's families.

I'm so glad people are rational on this board. On the other board I frequent, it's ALL because of his name and nothing else.
