This is more my point -- the speculation and rumor-mongering. There's been a lot made of Maj. Hasan as a Muslim and some have taken this information to suggest that he may've been working for Al-Qaeda. This seems to have a lot to do with what I recently talked about, Mr. Douthat and his blanket conceptualization of Muslims as "the enemy."
Just stop. Things will be figured out but "Islamic writings on his door" (by which I assume they mean "Arabic writing" since Islam isn't a language) and him saying something in Arabic don't mean anything except that he's a Muslim.
Oh, and 1 more thing. After 4/16 and Northern Illinois, there's a lot of talk about letting students carry guns. Hasan was stopped by a cop. Others may've been firing though, trying to stop the rampage and here's what happened:
Officials were looking into whether some soldiers may have been shot accidentally by others trying to shoot the gunman. Investigators are analyzing "all the rounds, the trajectories, all the weapons, all the shots, where they came from," said Col. John Rossi, deputy commanding general at Fort Hood. "That will be determined by the investigators."And these were soldiers, with extensive firearms training.
