Mannen som drepte 12 og såret 31 soldater på Fort Hood-basen i Texas var major Malik Nadal Hasan. Han oppgis å være en «mental health professional». Denne tittelen gjorde Wolf Blitzer noe urolig. Yrket passer svært dårlig med handlingen, Men det kan øke sannsynligheten for at udåden er politisk motivert.

A law enforcement official identified the shooting suspect as Army Maj. Malik Nadal Hasan. The official said Hasan, believed to be in his late 30s, was killed after opening fire at the base. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the case publicly.

The official says investigators are trying to determine if Hasan was his birth name, or if he changed his name and converted to Islam at some point in his life.

Cone said the soldier used two handguns in the attack. It was not clear if the gunman had stopped to reload.

To andre sitter i varekt som mistenkte.

Hvis det er en muslim som har begått skytingen qua muslim, vil det ha stor virkning på amerikanerne.
