President Barack Obama has ordered that flags at the White House and other federal buildings will be flown at half staff until Veterans Day in recognition of the shooting at Fort Hood, Texas. 

“This is a modest tribute to those who lost their lives even as many were preparing to risk their lives for their country,” he said at the White House.

“It’s also a recognition of the men and women who put their lives on the line every day to protect our safety and uphold our values.” http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2009/11/06/obama-orders-flags-lowered-to-honor-fort-hood-victims/

The last time flags flew at half mast was when President Barack Obama issued a presidential proclamation ordering that U.S. flags around the world fly at half-mast in honor of Sen. Edward Kennedy http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/08/26/politics/main5267084.shtml

President Obama said, “Our nation’s thoughts and prayers are with the service members, civilians, and families affected by the tragic events at Fort Hood, Texas.   The brave victims, who risked their lives to protect their fellow countrymen, serve as a constant source of strength and inspiration to all Americans. We ask God to watch over the fallen, the wounded, and all those who are suffering at this difficult hour.”http://startelegram.typepad.com/politex/2009/11/president-obama-orders-us-flags-at-halfstaff-for-fort-hood-victims.html

President Obama also took the first two minutes of his speech to give props to his personnel, not the dead military.  Thankfully, he thanked God and not Allah in the end.

Twelve people plus the attacker were killed and 31 were wounded after a gunman opened fire at Fort Hood in Texas.  Fort Hood is the Army’s largest U.S. post.  One gunman is dead and two and two other soldiers are in custody. One of the dead is a civilian police officer, Fort Hood confirmed via  http://www.kwtx.com/home/headlines/69305427.html   

The Fort Hood Website currently says service unavailable, http://pao.hood.army.mil/.  LOCKDOWN.    

Fort Hood is a U.S. Army post located outside of Killeen, Texas. The post is named after Confederate General John Bell Hood, It is located halfway between Austin and Waco, about 60 miles (100 km) from each, within the U.S. state of Texas. via http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Hood

Fort Hood is the largest active duty armored post in the United States, and is the only post in the United States that is capable of supporting two full armored divisions. In addition to the 1st Cavalry Division and the 4th Infantry Division, Fort Hood is also home for the Headquarters Command III Corps, 3d Personnel Group, 3d Signal Brigade, 13th Corps Support Command (COSCOM), 13th Finance Group, 89th Military Police Brigade, 504th Military Intelligence Brigade, the 21st Cavalry Brigade (Air Combat), the Dental Activity (DENTAC), the Medical Support Activity (MEDDAC), Army Operational Test Command (AOTC) formerly TEXCOM, and various other units and tenant organizations. http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/facility/fort-hood.htm

“I heard three or four volleys of shots with eight to 12 shots in each volley. Initially, I thought it was a training exercise,” John Fisher, Bell County commissioner for the precinct that includes Killeen, said the shooters were wearing military clothing, but was not sure if they were military. He heard reports that the shooting started in a barracks and spilled over into a PX http://www.forthoodsentinel.com/

Fox News TV is now confirming all three of the shooters were soldiers.

Official music video for Mike Doughty’s new song “Fort Hood” off of his Golden Delicious album. One commentator wrote via You Tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BaB9dow1eR4 , ” Titled Fort Hood because that’s a place where sick soldiers come back from Iraq to heal up from mental trauma.

The real “meat” of the song is:
“I smell blood and there’s no blood around,
blanked out eyes and a blanked out sound,
I see them coming back motionless in an airport lounge”

We feel for the dead and injured but good lord, this is a terrorist act by American soldiers upon American soldiers whatever his religion is. Wtf? Why was it a local police official that brought a soldier down.  Where are all the AK 47’s that my tax dollars are paying for?

 President Obama’s response:  

“It is horrifying that they should come  under fire at an army base on American Soil,” said President Obama….  The extraordinary men and woman in uniform are properly cared for and that their safety and security is when they are at home is provided for.

President Obama, as Commander and Chief gets an F for the day for not providing the means prevent this despicable shooting and securing Fort Hood. Period. Why was a local police officer on an Army base in the first place? 

At the Soldier Readiness Facility, Press Conference| Mass Shooting By U.S. Soldiers At Fort Hood, Texas – 11/05/09 – Shooter Identified As Army Major Malik Nadal Hasan opened fire.  video link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90zhlrQjjTM  The Army major suspected of opening fire on soldiers as they were preparing to deploy overseas at the massive Fort Hood military base in central Texas Thursday may have been an Army psychiatrist who recently completed training in disaster and preventive psychiatry at Walter Reed Medical Center in the nation’s capital says, http://www.mcclatchydc.com/251/story/78425.html  Additionally-

In June, Fort Hood’s commander, Lt. Gen. Rick Lynch, told CNN that he was trying to ease the kind of stresses soldiers face. He has pushed for soldiers working a day schedule to return home for dinner by 6 p.m., and required his personal authorization for anyone working weekends…According to the records, Hasan completed a residency in psychiatry at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. in 2007 and additional training in disaster and preventive psychiatry at Uniformed Services University Of the Health Sciences F. Edward Herbert School of Medicine, Bethesda, Md.

We’d like to be home for dinner with the family and have weekends off too.  That is not necessarily a reality in today’s economy for anyone.  Again we can’t figure out why it took local police to bring a soldier down.

According to http://abcnews.go.com/WN/soldiers-killed-fort-hood-shooting/story?id=9007938, The gunman used two handguns, Cone said. He wasn’t sure if the shooter reloaded the weapons during the attack.

Handgun use magazines and rifles use clips…Most 9mm handguns that are full size would hold between 15 to 17 rounds. Some manufacturers do make 20 rounders like Beretta and some can use 30 round mags like Rugers and Glocks depending on the model via http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080526172246AAjIR5O

In a gross offense to peace seeking Muslims, one commentator wrote via http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2379466/posts , “

Why is anyone surprised? We already have a DIRTY MOSLEM TRAITOR in the Oval Office.  What’s one more moslem piece of garbage?

If he wore the uniform he was an American.  Look at this piece of shit American-

Accused serial killer Anthony Edward Sowell served at Cherry Point air station and Camp Lejeune in the 1980s while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. Sowell, 50, is charged with five murders in Cleveland, Ohio, after police found the remains of 10 or more people in and around his home over the past week.   http://www.enctoday.com/news/sowell-49263-nbsj-point-marine.html 

Innocent until proven guilty.  Please, God Bless America.  A moment of silence isn’t going to cut the rug for what is necessary to protect us from ourselves.
