    FOX news is saying the suspect was a veteran.

    I am very sad for all the family and loved ones of the murder victims of this horrendous attack. I hope that everyone who is connected to this horrible "terrorist like" attack on the Navy base will be found and prosecuted/jailed for life if found guilty.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    I really don't understand the outrage over someone writing "my first thought was that it was a muslim". Can someone explain this to me and why we should just ignore the fact that we are in an open conflict with islamic extremists in multiple theaters, that such attacks adhere to the tactics they employ, and that such attacks have happened in the states previously?

    I seriously don't get it.

    Because the term "muslim" encompasses an entire religion, which includes about a billion people, and millions this country, who are as peaceful as the next guy and have nothing to do with the jihadists. It would be like saying, my first thought is that it's a Christian or a conservative, since a large number of domestic terrorists attacks are the result of radical anti-abortion rightwing Christians, or political rightwingers like McVeigh.

    I'm sure Christians wouldn't appreciate that.

    The odds of it being "a Muslim" shooting on American soil is vanishingly small

    When there are few facts, speculation runs rampant.
    But, when the reporters are expected to continuously report on a story for which there are few facts, what else can t hey do?
    The sad part of all that is, once the facts are know, many people will still have heard only the various speculations.

    He never asserted all muslims were violent or responsible for the attack. he asserted that his first thought was that the attacker was muslim

    It would be like saying, my first thought is that it's a Christian or a conservative, since a large number of domestic terrorists attacks are the result of radical anti-abortion rightwing Christians, or political rightwingers like McVeigh.
    Ugh, if we were talking about an abortion clinic a Christian would be my first thought. The same would be true of you and everyone else rejecting the fact that in this attack his first thought was that the guy was muslim

    I'm sure Christians wouldn't appreciate that.
    Yeah, people get offended by all manner of reasonable assessments. Ever here of the saying "the truth hurts"? But someone taking offense to something doesn't mean it's not a reasonable or valid assessment

    yes, but the attacks Islamic extremists have carried out in this country tend to be high profile, they often attack military installations over seas, and terrorists attacks have happened here in the past.

    the general response to his comments acts like it's a comment that is coming totally from left field and that has no basis in reality, when that is simply not true
