According to online reports, a Muslim soldier based at Fort Hood, Texas opened fire on military personnel at the base Thursday killing 13 and wounding 30 before he was taken into custody.

Reports say Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan shouted "Allahu Akbar," which is Arabic for "God is great!" before opening fire with handguns.

Hasan, a lifelong Muslim, was a committed soldier with no extremist views, according to his imam at a mosque Hasan regularly attended. Hasan wore his uniform to prayers, according to the AP.

Authorities originally thought they killed Hasan during an intense shootout following the rampage. But Hasan was found alive and hospitalized in stable condition.

Hasan was apparently unhappy about being deployed to Iraq. He had hoped that Barack Obama would pull out o the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and got into frequent arguments with other soldiers about the war. that should have been a red flag that something was amiss.

In an effort to explain how a soldier using handguns could kill and wound so many, officials explained that "friendly fire" and ricocheting bullets may have contributed to the deaths. Responding military officials may have shot some of the victims accidentally.

Authorities initially thought three soldiers were involved. But two soldiers taken into custody were released yesterday without charges.

    I got a couple of conflicting stories about this. First they said the suspect was dead, then they said he had two accompliances. One man caused all this devistation and is still alive in stable condition. How sad.

  • missy

    I read about this man and I was wondering why didn't they release him from the army........I feel bad for Muslim people because now people are just gonna be mean/cruel to them and his aunt said that people use to taunt him for being a Muslim(I am sure he isn't the only person taunted)but he had to take it to the extreme to take the lives of innocent people who I am sure were just as nervous to go to war as him....That's why I can't be in the army,marines non of that(you cant sell me that whole country pride stuff)because I couldn't take that pressure and risk my life and to come back home after all that horrors sthat they have seen and to live a normal life again. (i respect people who go to war)

    May those soldiers who lost their live R.I.P.

    This story is just sad.

    I understand y so many people are highlighting the fact that he's muslim, but its necessary. The only thing that should of sent up a red flag was his unlike posting where he compared suicide bombers to G.I who jump on grenades to protect fellow soldiers....

    I was getting my breakfast in the deli this morning, and they said he'd never travel over seas, and atleast so far...they found no link to terrorists. As of RIGHT NOW...i'm going to say dude had a problem, and stick w/ the story that he didn't want to go to war. I don't feel bad for him though....after all he killed 13 of our own, and wounded 30+...it doesn't get any worst than that...our soldiers shouldn't expect that at home.

    I don't see us leaving either war anytime soon.....so the suicide rate amongst our vets will continue to go up. I can't imagine what they go through. All we can do is just pray for them.

    He had an extremist blog. Clearly he was losing his mind and possibly fearful of going to Iraq. He thought he was going to get that college education for free.

    There are certain facts that remain.

    1. The killer ironically, is a psychiatrist for the soldiers

    2. He was BORN and RAISED in America.

    3. Since there is no clear motive here, let's not assume that his RELIGION had anything to do with it.

    I, for one, seeing as though everybody throws their theories out there, feel like like as a psychiatrist, and treating all those soldiers with PTSD, he might have killed them to "save" them from what was to happen to them over there. Because most he killed were about to be deployed to the middle east.

    In any event, the beauty of America, Canada, England etc. is that one is free to practise any religion they choose without the fear of being discriminated against. Let's keep it that way. What one person does in the name of religion should not typecast everybody who believes the same. We as black people know all too well about the pain this causes when we're stereotyped.

    RIP to the fallen soldiers.

    As for the topic at hand, I don't have a problem with Muslims, but the government was onto this dude 6 months ago because of he crazy blog posts. At the very least they should have evaluated his mental state.

    His religion did not cause the mental breakdown that led to this incident. I'm tired of Muslims getting a raw deal, when Christians commit crimes nobody ever attributes it to their religion, you never hear Christian serial killer or Christian rapist/murderers, though I;m sure if we looked at statistics there'd be Christians committing crimes than Muslims in this country. I feel sad for the incident, for the victims, the survivors & their families, I hope they can start the healing process.

    As far as FreddyO, Sandra, I don't know why you even gave him the satisfaction of a reply. Clearly if you were able to get a restraining order on him, you were able to prove that he acted in a threatening manner towards you.

    There is a high suicide rate amongst psychiatrists. I'm originally from Akron, OH and there were 3 psychiatrists who committed suicide within a year period one time.

    I went to a psychiatrist one time. She freaked out on a telephone call while I was in her office. I couldn't get out of there fast enough. Never went to another one - decided to save my money and go to my church pastor.

    @iyonah. It's the truth. Anyone who knows anything about true Islam knows it's a religion about peace & living right, and just because a criminal happens to be muslim, doesn't mean their criminalistic behavior is anyway related to their religion.

  • missy

    I am not defending or supporting rape by priest but how many religious leaders (in any religion) have gone to jail for rape......... I can't think of none (maybe a few though) i don't have a problem with your comment but in my every day life people only like to put the light on Catholic priests as if they are the only religion to have scandals and like the saying goes.... One bad apples doesn't spoil the bunch. But I could get why people only shine the light on Catholics because they do act as if they are "holier than thou art" but I ain't offended to the extreme but that is just a stereotype that I don't like..... and that's how you feel and I aint mad at ya

  • KaraZ

    @Missy, if you feel that way imagine how every Muslim in America must feel every time someone who claims their religion gets into this kind of mess. IMO Catholics are luckier than Muslims actually, because at least (outside of a priest) when Catholic child molesters are arrested, the news doesn't say oh you know he was a devout Catholic & religiously repeated his hail Mary's. The US media has an agenda against Islam, every time a Muslim messes up, they want to act like it's because of their religion that they are messing up.

    @Karaz

    I know that is why I said in my comment @ #5 I feel bad for Muslim people because people are going to be even meaner and crueler to them and justify it ..........It is the same thing with black people if one black person messes up you read comments about people using the N word and talking about our skin color and lumping all black people in one basket......

    I didn't blame his religion but his Aunt bought up the fact that people were taunting him for his religion. Also people don't remember the good people do they remember the bad ..For the Muslims few bad apples did spoil the bunch so many people lump all Muslims in one basket and call them extremists I for one don't judge people off of others actions but more about who they are.

  • missy

    @Shauny they are doing this on purpose to make it seem as the Muslims are bad persons probably so they can justify the war or some other ish......

    I was watching this thing at 2 a.m. the other morning and the comedian Mark Curry cameon and said (during his routine)we should send all the murderers and gang bangers who kill innocent people to iraq to fight in the war .He also said that they should be sent with the weapons that they used to hurt these individuals.As he saying this i was thinking that he was making some good points but of course their would be difficulties with this but we can dream right.
