    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?

    Sounds like questions that people were raising about Japanese Americans during WW2.

    So why are you so willing to leave out the very real possiblity that he could have reloaded several times?

    What are your motivations here Adpsts?

    So why don't you wait until they do and then point out how they're wrong?

    There's nothing yet to show that he was a Muslim convert.

    Yes, and it's absolutely impossible that he reloaded. Great point.

    I guess, when the ballistics investigation is complete, we'll know how many different weapons were use.

    One correction, there were 43 casualties.

    If this was his first deployment to the Middle east, it could very will be that he was in fear of what might happen over there to a muslim american in the U.S. Army who is working against his brother muslims....

    I am very interested in why he was promoted, and/or allowed to stay in the Army, if he said the anti-American things he supposedly said.

    This is what we were talking about several weeks ago in another thread - "holes in the floor."
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    So what do you think the chances are that he simply reloaded that two pistols he was carrying?

    Slim, at best.

    You have to understand that those folks in that room aren't just standing there, waiting to get shot. They're ducking and diving, so this guy is shooting multiple moving targets, with a pistol and scores 43 hits? No way.

    Shep interviewed the cousin who said he'd always been Muslim, but was raised here and was a 'good American.'

    Yea, it's much more likely that he managed to hit 43 targets with 34 bullets.
