    I dont see much difference in being a nutbag and a religious nutbag.

    The results can be horrific in either case.
    Thank you

    CBS has learned Ft. Hood shooter Maj. Hasan was licensed psychiatrist from Maryland

    CBS News (CBSNews) on Twitter

    If you want to follow the latest updates as they occur, you can use this search string:

    Twitter

    It gets most of the stuff while weeding out the thousands of retweets about praying for the victims, donating blood, etc.

    I'm not military, but I have been to Fort Hood. It is HUGE, with varying terrain and good cover in some areas.

    Wow. Just found out that a long time childhood friend is actually stationed at Fort Hood but happens to be deployed to Iraq currently. What a odd blessing in disguise.

    The fact that twitter is primarily used by angsty hipsters who like to complain doesn't change the fact that in breaking news situations, its absolutely unmatched for its ability to provide you with links to what's going on. I don't plan on signing up anytime soon, but whenever anything happens that I want information about immediately (whether its news like this or an injury to someone on my fantasy team), it's always on twitter faster than anyplace else.

    statesman.com

    The two suspects arrested shortly after the shooting have been released, according to the office of U.S. Rep. John Carter, R-Round Rock, whose district includes Fort Hood.
    If they're being released, I think it's safe to say they weren't involved. At this point, it looks like it may have just been the one guy.

    edit: From Sen Cornyn:

    It is imperative that we take the time to gather all the facts, as it would be irresponsible to be the source of rumors or inaccurate information regarding such a horrific event. Once we have ascertained all the facts, working with our military leaders and law enforcement officials on the ground, we can determine what exactly happened at Fort Hood today and how to prevent something like this from ever happening again. We do not yet have these details. My prayers are with the individuals who were killed today, the wounded and their loved ones.
