So does that apply to non-monotheistic religions as well which aren't related either christianity,judaism, or islam. For instance how about hinduism or buddhism. Maybe they need to start teaching about world religions again in High School. It seems you get your info about other religions from either tv preachers or Fox news. 9/11 has been the worst thing to have ever happened to freedom of religion in this country. I've been studying buddhism and practicing meditation for a long time. If this was the 1960's I would be called a tree-hugging hippie. Because of 9/11 and because I'm a spiritual person and have a non-traditional view of god I'm lumped with the terrorists. I find this offensive and insulting and un-patriotic because the last time I looked freedom of religion was in the bill of rights. Also contrary to what the tv preachers have said about the founding fathers most weren't exactly card-caring holy-rollers either or bible thumpers. Thomas Jefferson had doubts about Jesus' divinity and had even wrote his own bible. I'm not trying to preach hate, in fact I'm beginning to hate the hate. It's ruining are country and destroying freedom of religion.

So based on that "Better to be safe than sorry" opinion, EVERY person who speaks out against this war should be labelled an extremist terrorist and carted off to some secret torture camp in Syria? That's really what you are saying here isn't it, lets be honest now.....

here are my beliefs on subject at hand.
1 there was more than one gunman why because unless he is the terminator that is a high body count forr a psychiatrist. and before you say anything about va tech gunman operating alone he was at a university not at worlds biggest army post
2 i believe he was some sort of sleeper agent positioned there with others just for this purpose
3why is everyone trying to fall for excuse i did it because i was picked on. hell i used that to cover my crimes when i was like 12. so he is a muslim so what he still did a terrorist attack.
4why was he listed as only soldier when orginally it was posted that there were 3. well either the powers that be don't want u to know that there are still 2 killers in country or they might have been killed and mistaken for victims

Why do some of you guys deny this was an act of terrorism?
What planet are you from?
I don't understand the denial I see all over this forum, they sure have you brainwashed,
Are you Americans, or Islamic plants?
I often wonder.

Hasan, the sole suspect in the massacre of 13 fellow US soldiers in Texas, attended the controversial Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Great Falls, Virginia, in 2001 at the same time as two of the September 11 terrorists, The Sunday Telegraph has learnt. His mother's funeral was held there in May that year.
The preacher at the time was Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born Yemeni scholar who was banned from addressing a meeting in London by video link in August because he is accused of supporting attacks on British troops and backing terrorist organisations.
As investigators look at Hasan's motives and mindset, his attendance at the mosque could be an important piece of the jigsaw. Al-Awlaki moved to Dar al-Hijrah as imam in January, 2001, from the west coast, and three months later the September 11 hijackers Nawaf al-Hamzi and Hani Hanjour began attending his services. A third hijacker attended his services in California.
As investigators look at Hasan's motives and mindset
Hasan was praying at Dar al-Hijrah at about the same time, and the FBI will now want to investigate whether he met the two terrorists.
Charles Allen, a former under-secretary for intelligence at the Department of Homeland Security, has described al-Awlaki, who now lives in Yemen, as an "al-Qaeda supporter, and former spiritual leader to three of the September 11 hijackers... who targets US Muslims with radical online lectures encouraging terrorist attacks from his new home in Yemen".
But he turned into an angry critic of the wars America was waging in Iraq and Afghanistan and had tried in vain to negotiate his discharge.
Whether due to his personal convictions, his stress over his deployment or other reasons, Hasan is alleged to have snapped and gone on a murderous rampage with a powerful semi-automatic handgun after shouting "Allahu Akhbar" ("God is great"), according to survivors. He had earlier given away copies of the Koran to neighbours.
Investigators at this stage have no indication that he planned the attacks with anyone else. But they are trawling through his phone records, paperwork and computers he used before the attack during an apparently sleepless night.
Another student had warned military officials that Hasan was a "ticking time bomb" after he reportedly gave a presentation defending suicide bombers.
But Richard had previously argued with Hasan when he said that he felt the "war on terror" was really a war against Islam, expressed anti-Jewish sentiments and defended suicide bombings.
"I asked Richard whether he believed that Hasan was motivated by religious radicalism in his murderous actions," Mr Pasha said.
Fort Hood shooter used as excuse to scapegoat Muslims, Arabs
Sergeant Major Jamie Posten, based at Fort Hood, confirmed there were multiple gunmen.
He told CNN: “More than one shooter fired shots in our soldier registration processing centre and the house theatre at Fort Hood.”
SACRAMENTO, CA- Two young military vets cannot excuse the violent actions of the Ft. Hood shooter but say life in the military today can be real.
