  • Osman Danquah, co-founder of the Islamic Community of Greater Killeen, said he spoke with the suspected shooter, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, after two services in late summer. During the conversations, Danquah said Hasan never expressed anger toward the Army or indicated any plans for violence.

    But during their second conversation, Hasan seemed almost incoherent, Danquah said.

    "But what if a person gets in and feels that it's just not right?" Danquah recalled Hasan asking him.

    "I told him, `There's something wrong with you,'" Danquah told The Associated Press during an interview at Fort Hood on Saturday. "I didn't get the feeling he was talking for himself, but something just didn't seem right."

  • None of these incidents were considered terrorism
    A former Army paratrooper has been sentenced to life in prison after admitting he killed a fellow soldier and wounded 18 others in a shooting at a North Carolina base a decade ago.

    Sgt. William Kreutzer (KROYTZ'-ur) had pleaded guilty earlier this month to one charge of premeditated murder and 18 other charges in order to avoid a possible death sentence. As a result, the sentence the 39-year-old received Tuesday at Fort Bragg was expected.

    Military judge Col. Patrick Parrish also reduced his rank to private, ordered him to forfeit all future pay and be dishonorably discharged.

    The sentencing brings an end to a case than began on Oct. 27, 1995, when Kreutzer opened fire with a rifle from a concealed position at soldiers preparing for a morning run.

  • No claims of terrorsim here either

    Earlier this year at Camp Liberty in Iraq, five soldiers died after an Army sergeant opened fire at a combat stress center. Apparently, that soldier had acted erratically in the days leading up to the attack. A military report released stated that there was a lack of guidelines for dealing with soldiers in distress.
    While the shooting tragedy at Fort Hood is shocking, this is not the first case of violence to hit U.S. military bases.

    Less than four months ago, a soldier opened fire during a party on Ft. Hood, killing a fellow comrade. More than a year ago, a first lieutenant went to one of his soldier's apartments, looking for missing military equipment. He was murdered by one of his own. That accused killer then killed himself.

  • terrorism here ?

    , Back here in Colorado Springs, 14 Fort Carson soldiers are accused of murder between 2005 and 2008. Most were from the same brigade and had documented problems with drugs and alcohol. Apparently, less than half of them got help from the Army. A study revealed that the brigade had “experienced slightly higher levels of combat than other brigades.”

    Maybe we should look at the effects of war and not blame religion. Maybe we should ask why this man was not treated for the obvious mental illness he had, but instead promoted to Major and given deployment orders

  • This guy is Islamic, but in his case, I don't think it is his religious beliefs that were his primary motivation, (though they could have had something to do with it) I think he just slipped his chain and went off his rocker. I don't think it was a sudden snap either, I think it was a gradual getting crazier and crazier, and somebody could have caught it and got rid of him before it got to the final point. In addition to being a nut case, he is a cowardly nut case. He doesn't have any compunction against killing people, he just doesn't want to kill people who might have a chance to shoot back.


    A yellow-bellied wing nut, and a psychiatrist too. Most of them need one.

    Just an FYI, Mentally ill people aren't usually aware that they are mentally ill. Calling him a coward may make you feel better but doesn't usually have a factor in their actions. He was becoming incoherent and the military did not notice. Mental instability knows no religious bounds. Some claim to speak directly to God, some the Devil.
