What do you think of the Army: Suspect Who Said `Allah Akbar!' Before Shooting


The base commander at Fort Hood says soldiers who witnessed a shooting rampage that left 13 people dead reported that the gunman shouted "Allah Akbar!" before opening fire at the Texas post.

Lt. Gen. Robert Cone told NBC's "Today" show on Friday that suspected shooter, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, made the comment, which is Arabic for "God is great!" before the rampage Thursday that also left 30 people wounded.

  • most terrifying thing of this

    Is that there are so many of you on here supporting this man that cold bloodedly killed innocent ppl. 13 to be extact, and still pending with the few others that remain in ICU in critical but stable condition. There is no reason imaginable for this. PSTD is not a excuse since he never spent one day in combat. He knew he wasn't going home thursday night, that is why he gave his property to neighbors. Its called a sucide mission. What is wrong with you guys? Instead of showing support for the military victims, you are turning this into a muslim against christian bashing. Muslim is the religion of the man who did these terrible acts. NOT christian. And by reading your replies, Im starting to think you christian bashers must have a heart on for christianity. Its the first thing that comes out of your mouths when someone saids something you disagree with.

  • Like it or not people, this is a religious war. Americans may not think it is, but the opponent does. The sooner we face that fact the sooner we will find the best way to deal with situations and the war in general.

  • "Clearly I think it was a terrorist act, whether he was connected to another group or not or a formal group is question we'll find out over the next couple of days," said Michael Scheuer, the former head of the CIA's Bin Laden unit.

    "But for years now, it's been very clear that two of the targets for Al Qaeda and other Islamic groups for recruitment were in the U.S. military and in the U.S. prison system," he said. "So this is not really much of anything new."

    Walid Phares, an expert on terrorism and a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, called the shooting "the largest single terror act in America since 9/11."

  • The most terrifying thing of this "terrorist act" has been the outright hate and racism spewed by so many people who would be defending this guy up one side and down the other if he were a white Christian guy named Bob Smith in the same circumstances who'd said, "God help me" before he did it.
