Hope for answers as US Army shooter awakes from coma
Fort Hood, Texas (AFP)
Nov 9, 2009
- The suspected shooter accused of killing 13 people at a US military base has regained consciousness and can talk, fueling hopes Monday he may soon reveal the motive behind the attack. "He is talking. He is conversing with the medical staff," a spokeswoman for the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, told AFP, about army psychiatrist Major Nidal Hasan. A round-the-clock inquiry at Fort Hood in Texas has so far failed to uncover the motives for Thursday's shooting, which also left 42 wounded, according to a new toll released Monday. Hasan, a devout Muslim, was shot and wounded by a female civilian police sergeant who halted his deadly gunfire, and had been in critical condition on a ventilator until Saturday.
So far investigators believe the 39-year-old acted alone, but amid reports that he may have had links to an American-born imam who has backed Al-Qaeda, new questions arose as to whether the shooting could have been a terror attack. The bloody spree has left army officials scrambling to understand how one of their own could turn on fellow soldiers, prompting pledges of better monitoring in the future. The shooting suspect "was a soldier," said base commander General Robert Cone, "and we have other soldiers that, you know, that might have some of the same stress and indicators that he has." On Monday, 15 wounded remained in hospital, while 27 more had been released. President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama were due to travel to Fort Hood Tuesday for a memorial service, with some 5,000 people expected to attend.
Defense Secretary Robert Gates visited the base on Monday to meet the families of those killed and to visit some of the wounded, including police sergeant Kimberly Munley, hailed as a heroine for confronting the gunman. Federal investigators are examining possible links between Hasan and Anwar al-Aulaqi, who was the spiritual leader of the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, The Washington Post reported. Hasan had attended the mosque in 2001, before Aulaqi left the United States in 2002 and settled in Yemen.
The imam was said to have crossed paths with Al-Qaeda associates, including two September 11 hijackers, and is now believed to have become a supporter of the terror network, the paper said, citing a senior US official. In a message posted on his website Monday, Aulaqi praised Hasan for his "heroic act," the SITE monitoring service said. "In fact the only way a Muslim could Islamically justify serving as a soldier in the US Army is if his intention is to follow the footsteps of men like Nidal," said Aulaqi. The mosque's current imam on Monday said around 3,000 people attended for prayers every Friday and the congregation should not be judged by a handful of its members, adding that Hasan was not a regular.
Senator Joseph Lieberman, who chairs the Senate Homeland Security Committee, has said he would launch a probe into whether the army missed any warning signs which could have prevented the attack. "There are very, very strong warning signs here that Dr Hasan had become an Islamist extremist and, therefore, that this was a terrorist act," he told "Fox News Sunday." His family has said Hasan had complained of harassment in the military and was deeply concerned about his orders to deploy to Afghanistan later this month. In mid-August, several weeks after Hasan arrived at Fort Hood, he had complained after another soldier scrapped along the side of his car and ripped off a bumper sticker saying "Allah is Love," according to The Washington Post.

Fort Hood investigators see suspect as lone gunman
Fort Hood, Texas (AFP) Nov 8, 2009
Investigators probing the massacre of 13 people at a Texas army base were Sunday trying to piece together the motive behind the shooting believed to be the act of a lone army gunman.
As US President Barack Obama prepared to attend a memorial Tuesday, 200-plus investigators worked round-the-clock to uncover how and why 39-year-old army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan allegedly went on the rampage at Fort Hood military base.
"All evidence at this point indicates the suspect allegedly acted alone," said army investigation spokesman, Chris Grey, appearing to strike down any theories that Hasan was part of a radical Islamist sleeper-cell.
As religious services were held in and around the base Sunday, the army's Criminal Investigation Command formally called for witnesses to come forward.
They also asked for clothes or other personal effects that may contain gunshot residue, or any items to help put together a ballistic portrait of Thursday's fateful events at building 42003, a troop processing center.
From their work, and the testimony of those who met Hasan, a picture has emerged of a deeply religious American of Palestinian descent, who opposed his country's prosecution of wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Hasan was to be deployed to Afghanistan later this month, army officials said.
Garrison chaplain Colonel Frank Jackson described having an amiable chat with Hasan a few months ago, when the pair discussed the purchase of Muslim prayer rugs.
"He just happened to be in our office area, and like I do when I see somebody who doesn't work for me I said 'hi'," Jackson told AFP.
"I asked him if there was anything I could do to assist the Muslim congregation.
"He said it was a great service, everything was doing great. I told him we needed to buy prayer rugs and I asked him where to go and he gave me a name of some place."
An initial search of Hasan's computer revealed no direct exchanges with known extremists, but US Army and FBI officials had yet to rule out completely possible links to terrorist groups, US media reported.
Earlier this year, the Federal Bureau of Investigation learned of Internet postings by a man calling himself Nidal Hasan that expressed support for suicide bombings.
Witnesses reportedly heard Hasan, who investigators believe fired more than 100 rounds during the incident, shout "Allahu Akbar!" (God is greatest) before opening fire. Thirty people were also injured in the carnage.
But US commanders, fearing a backlash against Muslim troops -- prized for their cultural and linguistic knowledge, warned against jumping to any conclusions about the shooter's motivation.
Army chief of staff George Casey warned deadly shootings at Fort Hood could prompt a backlash against the estimated 3,500 Muslims serving in the US military.
"I worry that the speculation could cause something that we don't want to see happen."
Sixteen of the 30 people wounded by volleys from the semi-automatic and the handgun allegedly wielded by Hasan, remained in hospital on Sunday as doctors warned many would be permanently scarred by their injuries.
The suspect himself, who was shot by a female civilian police officer who was being hailed as a heroine, was taken off a ventilator, but was still in intensive care.
Meanwhile details were released of each of those killed.
The victims included a 21-year-old mother-to-be Private Francheska Velez, who was due to return home to Chicago for maternity leave after a tour in Iraq, and 56-year-old John Gaffaney, a psychiatric nurse who had just persuaded the military to let him return to active duty for deployment in Iraq.
Private First Class Kham Xiong, 23, was a father of three whose own father had fought communist forces in Laos during the Vietnam war.
Specialist Ryan Hill, 28, came to the base with his young daughter Emma to put flowers and candles at the main gates as a mark of respect to the victims.
"It makes me mad. I don't how somebody can commit an act like that," Hill told AFP. "Those soldiers were ready to take off and deploy and they won't even get to do that."
Others rallied by taking food to the headquarters of the 20th Engineer Batallon -- which lost four men in the shooting -- to be distributed for the victims' families.
"We received an e-mail saying we could bring food. I brought spaghetti. We didn't know any of the victims but we are still shaken", said Misty Wright, whose husband is in the Army.

Statul Israel sustine economic multe persoane care intre anii 1939-1945 au ajutat (riscandu-si poate viata si pozitia sociala) evreii in timpul prigoanei naziste.Aceste persoane sunt multe in viata si au domiciliul in toate statele din estul Europei -inclusiv Romania.Asistenta nu este numai materiala ea avand si multe aspecte umanitare precum asistenta medicala in tara de origine sau in Israel (Spitalul Tel Hashomer)(Elias-Bucuresti) sau asistenta geriatrica (canin ,cantina...) recte Amalia -Bucuresti.
Din considerente de intimitate personala datele si cifrele sunt clasificate aparand numai ca" linie" din bugetul national.

Tunisia si Maroco sunt tari de turism si nu tari fanatice.Au o cultura europeana .Foarte multi cetateni israelieni cu nostalgii si radacini din aceste tari viziteaza frecvent aceasta zona.Nu este nici o problema politica sau de alta natura dupa legi scrise sau nescrise....
Nu compara tari cu radacini culturale franceze cu salbaticii din Gaza.Asa cum nu poti compara West Bank unde este elita palestiniana cu palestinienii din Gaza Strip.
Conflicte in OM au fost si o sa mai fie caci este o regiune divizata si nici religios la musulmani nu este monolita.
Pacat de Liban care era Parisul Orientului si acum a incaput partial politic si militar pe mana unor fanatici.(care nici libanezi nu sunt de origine etnica...).
Gigi Dinica a fost un mare om de arta fie-i tarana usoara ,care a adus multe merite culturii romanesti.Pacat de el mare artist.
Regret sa intrerup un dialog atat de dragastos, cu o intrebare atat de cinica:
Cum e cu diferenta dintre evreii care s-au contopit in cultura tarilor in care traiesc, fata de sionistii turbati care nu au pace, pana nu provoaca un razboi, sau macar un incident?
