Could you do us all a favor, and if the opportunity ever arises, beat the crap of any your fellow Muslims who indicate that they think like this guy while yelling "CUT IT THE **** OUT YOU'RE RUINING IT FOR THE REST OF US"?

This is the content that was removed from the Associated Press story:
WASHINGTON — The Army psychiatrist suspected of carrying a shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, had come to the attention of authorities six months ago because of Internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other threats, law enforcement officials said Thursday.
The postings appeared to have been made by Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who was killed during the shootings at the Army post that left least 11 others dead and 31 wounded. The officials say they are still trying to confirm that he was the author. They said an official investigation was not opened.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case.
One of the Web postings that authorities reviewed is a blog that equates suicide bombers with a soldier throwing himself on a grenade to save the lives of his comrades.
"To say that this soldier committed suicide is inappropriate. Its (sic) more appropriate to say he is a brave hero that sacrificed his life for a more noble cause," said the Internet posting. "Scholars have paralled (sic) this to suicide bombers whose intention, by sacrificing their lives, is to help save Muslims by killing enemy soldiers."
Military officials said Hasan, 39, had worked for six years at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, where he had received a poor performance evaluation. He transferred to Fort Hood in July.
The officials, who had access to Hasan's military record, spoke on condition of anonymity because such records are confidential.
Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, said Hasan was about to deploy overseas, but it was not known whether he was headed to Iraq or Afghanistan.
Retired Army Col. Terry Lee told Fox News that he worked with Hasan, who had hoped Obama would pull troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq. Lee said Hasan got into frequent arguments with others in the military who supported the wars, and had tried hard to prevent his pending deployment.

In the latest press conference, General Cone (sp?), post commander at Ft. Hood, stated that the police officer who shot this fuckbag, and was killed during this act of heroism, was indeed female.
On Fox news, Hassan's cousin was interviewed and stated that Hassan was always a muslim, not a convert to islam as originally reported.
I was glued to this news from the beginning because I was in 1st Cav. Divarty at Ft. Hood in 92, so it kind of hit home for me.

If this had happened in a non-English speaking country, no one would care.

He freaked because he was being shipped out.
This was less an act of terrorism as it was just cowardice.

Read about in the newspapers here; my vote, no firing sqauad for him -
if he's a terrorist, that's exactly what he wants.
Have him catch the soap in prison for the next fifty years; that would be fun.

On a similar note 5 British soldiers were shot and killed by an Afghan Policeman a few days ago. He waited until their shift ended and they had taken their body-armour off and opened fire. He escaped. Chilling stuff.

On the upside, though, Hasan certainly picked the wrong state to do this in. Not that this makes it any better for the wounded or the families of the dead, though. Simply horrible.

I'm not saying he should designate himself as the Batshit Police, but it's reasonable to expect that at the very least, a "dude, what the ****?" would escape his lips if he encounters that kind of thinking within his group.

9 PM: Hassan is still alive, merely wounded in the altercation. He is currently in custody. The police officer who wounded him him, an unnamed woman, has also survived and is being treated for her wounds.
