I'm listening to the radio this afternoon after finishing poolside yoga, when I hear them announce that one of the three shooters who were killed at the Ft Hood massacre (12 dead so far, 31 wounded) this afternoon was US Army Major Malik Nadal Hasan. All three of the shooters are US Army soldiers. Ugh!
NPR dug up records of a US Army psychiatrist named Major Malik Nadal Hasan - the base 'shrink' - but have not confirmed if he is the same man as the shooter.
If all three of these shooters were Muslims, this will only further inflame the xenophobia among the rabid right and ignorant masses. Not good. 6Nov09 Update: only 1 shooter, Nidal, not 3.
