Quick Take: Fort Hood Shootings - The Investigation

STRATFOR security expert Fred Burton describes the complex process of investigating a shooting spree that killed 12 people and injured scores more at Fort Hood, Texas.


The suspect, Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan, was not killed during the event and is currently in stable condition at a local hospital. Hasan was born and raised in Virginia and graduated from Virginia Tech University in 1997 with a bachelor's degree in biochemistry. He received his medical degree from the military's Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Md., in 2001.


On a more important note, I just read Jeffery's Intelfusion entry and couldn't agree more....
In the wake of the tragic and senseless killings of innocent people at Ft. Hood by a crazed psychiatrist who happened to be Muslim, take notice of who uses this as an opportunity to bash an entire religion. You want to avoid those people, both professionally and personally. Every religion has extremists out on the fringes, including Christianity. In no case should the acts of extremists be used to paint an entire group of believers, regardless of the religion. The people who engage in that kind of religious bigotry have surrendered the control of their mind to fear instead of logic. And fearful people are dangerous to be around.
