Fox News now reporting that the Jihad threat from a few days ago is a 'SEPARATE THING' from this shooting. They aren't saying how they know this ... but thats what Shepard Smith just said ....


It has to be otherwise they have some big time egg on their faces, so this will be separate thing right up until it's not. And if it is a separate thing, that's actually worse, IMO.

What utter nonsense :



Officials at Fort Hood in Texas say there is a shooting on base and are advising all personnel to shelter in place.


www.usatoday.com...

Shelter in place ?

SHELTER IN PLACE ?

How are they suppose to fight wars ?

By dialing 9-1-1 ?
edit on 2-4-2014 by neo96 because: (no reason given)


Largest percentage of military personnel on a base aren't combat soldiers. Mostly support staff.

Negative.

The largest portion of Combat MOS's are young single Soldiers living in the Barracks, a third of which are NCOs.

Most people who live off post are people looking to get a good deal with whatever their allowed for on their BAH Allotment.

A huge majority of Officers an Senior NCOs are married and live off post, though just as many live On Post.

Why live on post?
No light Bill.
Cheap Groceries.
Free services for house, POV, lawn care, etc.
and many more perks.

Wow Gretta VanSustrend was just cut off on her own show. Something is going on here. Shepherd Smith cut her off and talked over her, then the camera dropped Gretta and just had Smith repeating the general report of the incident. She was asking about the report the FBI received of a jihad that was threatened against Ft. Hood the other day. Then Smith said this isn't connected. Then Gretta tried to press the issue and ask why isn't it connected. The the producer trashed her feed and went to Smith. Something is up here.

Now they are saying 15 injured in this attack.
One shooter dead.
Still 20 shots in the Motor Pool ....




First reports are often wrong.

Better to wait til tomorrow or the dust settles.

Am I the only here who is confused by the number of injured people and the people at large? I mean they found one suspect with a Handgun... At a military base none the less? Where is the sniper corp?

Now saying 8 wounded...4 critically.

Reporting this is confirmed by Ft Hood.

But they also said one dead and ALSO the shooter dead...that is def not clear as to if just the shooter is dead.

...how can this happen there again?

if our troops were allowed to be armed on military posts like they should .. this would have been over in seconds. Why the politicians disarmed our troops on their own military bases is STRANGE.

Seems a bit strange that two mass shootings would occur there, carried out by men with the last names of "Hassan" and "Hasan." Bizarre.

I have a feeling we'll soon be told that there is no second gunman. Seems there usually (officially) isn't.


That's just coincidental, I'm sure. It's workplace violence and wouldn't even have happened if people weren't allowed to own their own guns. /Carney


I'm sure you're right, but an odd coincidence all the same.

Like others, I had a moment of deja vu upon reading the thread.

Dropped the ball? I think she was asking the wrong questions. She's a lawyer and knows the questions to ask. Something isn't right here.

Smith is the big mouthpiece guy at Fox. Van Susteran tends to have a mind of her own and asks real questions on occasion.

BBC have just interviewed a Lieutenant from the base who cannot confirm anybody in custody or how many gunmen or whether a gunman has been shot.

The crazy part about this, The shooting popped off at 1630, I had just left BN at 1626.

My BN is on Battalion Rd., in fact it happened less then a mile away.

Its very possible I was driving home during the shooting and had no idea.

Reality just shattered.
