*****UPDATE -11/7/09 - The media and muslim apologists continue to dance around the truth of the Ft. Hood massacre. Many rushing to blame the military or Hasan's co-workers for his state of mind and subsequent murderous rampage. Lame excuses such as Hasan was supposedly "harassed" by other military personnel don't hold water. Hasan was an officer - and anyone who had been in the military KNOWS that particularly officers do NOT get harassed. To do so would be the end of the offenders military career.
"Soldiers who witnessed the shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas that left 13 people dead reported that the gunman shouted "Allahu Akbar!" before opening fire, the base commander said Friday." SOURCE
Recall Allahu Akbar was also screamed by the 9/11 Al Qaeda terrorists as they plunged their airplanes into the twin towers of the World Trade Center killing 2993 innocent people.
This "devout muslim" was also under investigation by the FBI for statements made supporting muslims killing US soldiers:
"The army psychiatrist who shot dead 13 people in murderous rampage at America's biggest military base was facing an FBI investigation for expressing sympathy with suicide bombers....Hasan posted a series of comments on a website which drew parallels between terrorists and a US soldier who sacrificed himself to save his comrades. Investigators were tipped off six months ago by the devout Muslim's worried colleagues."SOURCE
Also extremely disturbing is a video, from the morning of the massacre, showing Hasan wearing a muslim white robe and cap:
"In the video, the individual believed to be Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan appears wearing clothes that would be abnormal for someone of Palestinian descent - Hasan's family is from Jordan. CBS News correspondent Sheila MacVicarreports that the man is wearing a shalwar kameez - long robes far more common in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
He is also wearing white, which in Islam is associated with death or mourning. The prayer cap on his head is also more closely associated with Southeast Asia than with the Arab world." SOURCE

Does the above look like an Army major to you??
This "devout muslim" - earned a six figure income after receiving his "free" psychologist's degree courtesy the USA taxpayers via the US Army:
Hasan, graduated from Virginia Tech in 1997 and earned a doctorate in psychiatry from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda. He spent at least six years at Walter Reed before moving to Fort Hood. SOURCE
Has repaid those same taxpayers by killing and injuring their sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers.
More on Hasan:
He was happy about the Muslim solider who shot and killed a soldier and wounded another at a Little Rock Military recruiting station. Hasan said Muslims should rise up against the aggressors. Maybe we should have more of these.....strapping bombs on and going into Times Square".
The officials had access to Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan's military record. They said he received a poor performance evaluation while at Walter Reed. SOURCE
One has to wonder what psychological damage he has done while counseling soldiers returning from active duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The glaring question is why wasn't Hasan booted out of the Army - and instead was promoted and assigned to Fort Hood? Was it due to the insidious Political Correctness and fear of the Army being labeled "Islamophobic"? The ongoing investigation will shed light on this - but sadly far too late for those who had their lives snuffed out by a supposedly "Lone Wolf" terrorist.
This cold blooded military Jihadist needs to face severe punishment for his heinous mass murders - let's hope it is death............and he's shouted his last "Allahu Akbar".
************UPDATE -11/7/09 - Muslim apologists and the lefty mainstream media continue to try to spin Islam out of and dance around the truth of the Ft. Hood massacre. Many are rushing to blame the military or Hasan's co-workers for his state of mind and subsequent murderous rampage. Lame excuses such as Hasan was supposedly "harassed" by other military personnel don't hold water.

Hasan's eyes "lit up" when he mentioned his deep respect for al-Awlaki's teachings, according to a fellow Muslim officer at the Fort Hood base in Texas, the scene of Thursday's horrific shooting spree. As investigators look at Hasan's motives and mindset, his attendance at the mosque could be an important piece of the 'jigsaw'" SOURCE
Hassan also served on President Barack Obama's White House transition team:
NEW YORK - Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the alleged shooter in yesterday's massacre at Fort Hood, played a homeland security advisory role in President Barack Obama's transition into the White House according to a key university policy institute document...... Hasan is listed on page 29 of the document as a Task Force Event Participant SOURCE
