CNN interviews Pvt Joseph Foster, a soldier who was wounded at Fort Hood. Here’s part of the transcript:
I was sitting in about the second row back when the assailant stood up, screamed and yelled Allah Akbar (ph) in Arabic and he opened fire.
A couple of minutes later, the interviewer wonders at the fact that Foster, kept soldiering on, not even realizing that he had been shot in the hip. Foster responds:
I had realized it at first, but with that much adrenaline, you tend to forget things.
Here is how CNN wrote up its own interview:
He said he “was sitting in about the second row back when the assailant stood up and yelled ‘Allahu akbar’ in Arabic and he opened fire,” Foster said Monday on CNN’s “American Morning.”
Foster, 21, said he wasn’t clear about whether the gunman said those exact words, noting that “with that much adrenaline, you tend to forget things.”
ABC has Keara Bono, also wounded in the attack, also saying that Hasan shouted “Allahu Akbar” before opening fire. There seems to be no dispute. Anyone who says it’s unconfirmed is either misinformed or lying.
That includes CNN, even if they are considered a real news orgainization.
