Witnesses say that Nidal Malik Hasan, apparently a lifelong Muslim and not a recent convert as initially reported, shouted “Allahu Akbar!” before opening fire yesterday. Although reportedly killed, he survived and is in custody.
Guess he was just giving a “shout-out” before getting things going.
Fort Hood commander Lt. Gen. Robert Cone said that they have not officially confirmed that Hasan made the opening remarks.
Cone said Hasan was hospitalized in stable condition and that investigators hope to interrogate him as soon as possible.
I’ll bet they do. They’re probably lined up around the block hoping for a chance to interrogate this guy.
