U.S. Officials Identifies Gunman at Fort Hood

"AP cites an unnamed source saying the gunman was Major Malik Nadal Hasan."

Is this another case of homegrown Jihad?
IMHO this has all the hallmarks of an Islamic attack on the West.  That there seem to be multiple shooters indicates that this is not just some deranged random attack, but a planned terrorist action to further the global Jihad.

There is a groundswell of Muslim honor killings, and attacks on civilians, and foiled Muslim terrorist plots in the past several years.  The more Islamic attacks that are perpetrated on American soil, the more attacks will be inspired by lone Jihadists and small cells.

The violent Global Jihad has been growing in other parts of the world for 20 years and is now reaching America.  One attack inspires another as pious Muslims take up the call to Jihad in order to further the spread of Islam.

No longer can these attacks by Muslims be written off as random acts by mentally deranged individuals.  The pattern is plain. 

Of course, the home grown Jihadi are just the tip of the iceberg.  There must be many organized Muslim terrorist sleeper cells made up of foreign Islamists here illegally and waiting for the signal from abroad to attack.  Added to this is the soft Jihadists such as CAIR and the dozens of other Islamist fronts of the Muslim Brotherhood who have been subverting America for decades through propaganda and disinformation.

It's long past time to wake up and realize that Islam is the greatest threat to Western civilization ever.  This attack is a symbolic strike at the American military to try to get the US to withdraw from the war on Islamists. 

Expect more attacks at the heart of America.

Like Atlas Shrugs says: IT'S THE JIHAD STUPID.



U.S. Officials Identifies Gunman at Fort Hood

A shooting rampage Thursday afternoon at the Army's Fort Hood in Texas killed 11 and wounded 31 before the gunman was killed and two suspects taken into custody.

All three of the people believed to have carried out the shooting were soldiers, Lt. General Bob Cone told reporters Thursday evening, though the motive remains unclear.

AP cites an unnamed source saying the gunman was Major Malik Nadal Hasan, though authorities have not publicly identified him.

Cone said witnesses reported seeing more than one shooter, but that couldn't be confirmed. The primary shooter used two handguns, he said.
The shooting took place 1:30 p.m. Thursday at the post's Soldier Readiness Center, where soldiers undergo medical screening before being deployed or after returning from overseas.

"We have a terrible, tragic situation here," said Cone. "Soldiers, family members and the civilians that work here are absolutely devastated."
Cone said the injuries "vary significantly" among the victims wounded in the shooting. The victims include one civilian police officer.

George Stratton's son George Stratton III was five feet away from the shooter at the Soldier Readiness Center and suffered a gunshot wound to his left shoulder.
"I talked to him right before surgery. He said, 'Dad, I'm getting ready to go into surgery ... I love you,'" George Stratton told
It was the second time the 18-year-old from Idaho called his father after the shooting. The first time was a voice mail he left while in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.
"Dad, I've just been shot and going to be OK. I'm in an ambulance," he said in the message.

President Obama called the shooting a "horrific outburst of violence" on members of the nation's armed forces. "It is horrifying that they should come under fire at an army base on American soil."
He said he doesn't yet know all the details but promised the government would get "answers to every single question."

Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison said the shooting was a terrible tragedy for all of the military families affected.
The base and area schools were on lockdown after the mass shooting, and all those on the Army post were asked to gather for a head count.
