Authorities have not identified the gunman publicly, but official sources have named Major Malik Nadal Hasan, a psychiatrist who reportedly didn't believe in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and wanted out of the military before he was set to be deployed overseas.
Federal law enforcement officials say Hasan had come to their attention at least six months ago because of Internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other threats.
11 dead and 31 are wounded. Some would have you believe that poverty is the root cause of terrorism, but that's, obviously, just some cuddly politically correct bullshit that the left would have you believe. Malik Nadal Hasan is a doctor. Osama Bin Laden is from a wealthy family. The 9/11 hijackers were college educated. The problem is the backward, medieval mentality which no amount of money or education seem to fix. The citizens of the West have sent tens of billions of dollars to feed, clothe, educate, and provide medicine and care for the poor Muslims world wide and none of it means anything to them. For as soon as there an accusation of a westerner mistreating the Koran, they go wild, burn our flags, and kill. Ironically, the very group that's so sensitive about its beliefs, offers absolutely no consideration for the beliefs of others. Next time they burn our flag, perhaps we should send over a few rockets. And next time there's a beheading, perhaps we should go nuclear. I am sure they will understand, for they know what its like to be disrespected.
Nader Hasan, the shooter's cousin, stresses that Malik - the shooter - is a good American here. His definition of that term is less than standard, I am sure.
