Fort Hood Under attack
Thursday afternoon in Fort Hood, Texas (the largest active armored post), Maj Hasan a psychiatrist shot and killed twelve people and wounded thiry-one people. Officials say that Hasan was scheduled to be deployed to Iraq and was pretty upset about it. It's crazy to think that one of our men that are scheduled to go over and fight for our country would take down his own men, right before deployment. Hasan came to Federal Law Enforcement Officials attention six months ago posting suicide bombings and threats on the internet but say that they are still trying to figure out if he was the author of these postings. Hasan used two handguns to take down over forty people. Officials took two other soilders into custody but were released after questioning. " It's difficult enough when we lose these great Americans in battles overseas," Obama said at the Interior department. For this to happen is something that we would never expect or ask for anyone to go through and the fact that our soilders who were just about to fight for us got shot down by one of their own, who has helped many of them at bad times, it's just crazy. I expect and hope that Hasan gets the justice that he deserves.
