I suspect he had a psychotic break.
I believe we're going to find out within the next few days that the "two others" thought to be involved were not, in fact.
He was openly griping out being deployed to Iraq and it has been reported that it was his greatest fear. He treated maimed and mentally injured soldiers...He in many was starting to fit this profile.

A conscientious objector (CO) is an individual who, on religious, moral or ethical grounds, refuses to participate as a combatant in war or, in some cases, to take any role that would support a combatant organization armed forces. In the first case, conscientious objectors may be willing to accept non-combatant roles during conscription or military service. In the second case, the CO objects to any role within armed forces and results in complete rejection of conscription or military service and, in some countries, assignment to an alternative civilian service as a substitute for conscription or military service. Some conscientious objectors may consider themselves pacifist, non-resistant, or antimilitarist.
He fits many of this criteria...for instance he was in a non-combative role being a doctor threating injured soldiers.
This was absolutely personal and religiously motivated. We will hear all about how he had fmaily problems or a bad childhood or that he had a bad Fruit Roll-Up for breakfast. But in the end, he turned on his fellow soldiers. He didn't climb a bell tower and start capping civilians. He didn't lock himself in a hotel room and kill himself. He chose to slaughter U.S. soldiers.
Logic dictates far greater than politically correct madness.
I am sure that the vast majority of American Muslims are honorable, peace loving Americans but the question begs to be asked how can you tell a loyal American from a radical Muslim who wants to kill us?
"God Bless Our Troops in Harms Way."
My heart goes out to the families.
There's really nothing more to say.
