Ft Hood killer still alive

This is strange.  He was first reported dead, but now KWTX is reporting that Malik Nidal Hasan is still alive.

FORT HOOD (November 5, 2009)— Army Maj. Malik Nadal Hasan whom Fort Hood officials identified as the soldier who opened fire Thursday afternoon on post, killing 12 and wounding 30 others, is not dead, according to the post’s commander, who earlier said the gunman was dead.

Lt. Gen. Robert Cone declined to comment on Hasan’s condition.

Hasan was reportedly taken to Scott & White Hospital in Temple.

Fort Hood ended its lockdown Thursday evening.

I guess we need to have us a fair trial then hang this bastard. Or, maybe a firing squad. I’m sure they could find volunteers.

Fort Hood on lockdown

7 12 are dead, 12 20 31 injured at the Soldier’s Readiness Processing Center, Ft. Hood, Texas.

News reports of 2 shooters, one now in custody, and one at large.

Developing …

Fox News is now reporting there may be two shooters on the loose, and the possibility of terrorism as the motive.

The murderer has been identified as Psychiatrist, Maj Malik Nidal Hasan. Two other suspects have been questioned and released. MPs are searching for a third suspect as the Post remains on lockdown.

Nidal Hasan, M.D., M.P.H.  Fellow, Disaster and Preventive Psychiatry
Department of Psychiatry, F.Edward Hebert School of Medicine Uniformed Services University of the Health Science  (BI)

This is beginning to sound eerily similar to the case of Sgt Asan Akbar, whose March 2003 fragging incident in Kuwait sent shockwaves through the 101st Airborne.

Update: T.J. Aulds reports this quote:

“They were telling him that one guy was shouting something in Arabic while he was shooting,” Tom Hunt said. “He couldn’t say much more than that.”


I wonder if it sounded anything like aloha snackbar …

Reading the fine print

You’ve seen the commercials for Ally Bank, ridiculing their competitor’s use of “fine print” to offer substandard products and services? Here’s one

So who is Ally Bank?

None other than a unit of GMAC.

So, keep that in mind as GMAC bellies up to the bar to seek another multi-billion dollar bailout.

In fact, Peter Flaherty reveals quite a bit of the fine print behind Ally Bank.
It’s a short read,
but, well worth it.

Climate change given same legal status as religion

How about that? The UK Telegraph is reporting a court decision described as “landmark.” Actually, it is just recognizing the obvious: The Goremons, gaiaists, and assorted fruits and nuts on the Left consider their support for Global Warming as a matter of faith. The courts follow suit …

Mr Justice Michael Burton said that “a belief in man-made climate change … is capable, if genuinely held, of being a philosophical belief for the purpose of the 2003 Religion and Belief Regulations”.

The ruling could open the door for employees to sue their companies for failing to account for their green lifestyles, such as providing recycling facilities or offering low-carbon travel.

Wonderful. This new religion even throws out a revenue stream for trial lawyers.

Frankly, I think it’s time to address the need for the Wall of Separation between government and this new religion. They are uncomfortably cozy for most of us. (h/t Pielke)
