    Re: 7 dead as many as a dozen hurt in Fort Hood shootings

    I remember when I was stationed at Fort Hood in 2000-2001 people used to joke that Fort Hood was nick named the Hood because people still acted like they were still in the hood. Wasn't the fist shooting to happen there nor will it be the last.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I am listening to the news, someone on the phone with Shep Smith on Fox is saying there was a graduation ceremony going on at the base today, so there would have been alot of nonmilitary people on base.

    Re: 7 dead as many as a dozen hurt in Fort Hood shootings

    FORT HOOD, Texas CNN quotes a military spokesman as saying at least seven people were killed and 15 others were wounded in a mass shooting incident at Fort Hood Thursday afternoon.

    One gunman was killed, according to ABC News; one gunman is said to be in custody and another may be at large.

    The Web site of the base in central Texas has posted an alert that says, "Effective immediately Fort Hood is closed." The Web site said that units at the base have been ordered to account for all personnel.

    The site says: "This is not a Drill. It is an Emergency Situation."

    "It is quite a state of pandemonium right now," said a reporter for the Killeen Daily Herald.

    Fort Hood the largest military facility in the free world, located between Austin and Waco is in lockdown.

    The area is no stranger to the tragedy of mass shootings. In 1991, a man entered a Luby's cafeteria in Killeen and killed 24 people during a 15-minute rampage.

    Re: 7 dead as many as a dozen hurt in Fort Hood shootings

    Sen. Hutchison just said there are 30 wounded. There's one certainly captured and it may have only been 2. What happened was that there were two people shooting in one building, one was captured while second escaped. There was also a shooting in a different building, so that may have been the escaped person, which is why there are reports of 3 people.

    There's no reason to assume anything yet about who the shooters are and what the motivation was. They have one guy in custody, so I'm sure we'll find out in the end.

    Three shooters sounds like a coordinated attack.

    Army: 7 dead in dual attacks at Fort Hood, Texas
    2009 The Associated Press
    Nov. 5, 2009, 2:57PM

    WASHINGTON The Army says seven people were killed and 20 wounded in a pair of shootings at the Fort Hood Army base in Texas. An Army spokesman at the Pentagon says the shootings began about 1:30 p.m. Thursday at a personnel and medical processing center at Fort Hood.

    The spokesman, Lieutenant Colonel Nathan Banks, says two shooters were apparently involved. There is no word yet on who they were, nor on identities of the dead.

    Banks says the second incident took place at a theater on the sprawling base.

    He says it is too soon to tell whether there is any link to battle stress or repeated deployments. The Army is suffering a record high suicide rate and other signs of stress from fighting two wars.
