Was that a Man-Made Disaster?

... and isn't it time for our officials to run to the neareast mosque and apologize?
FORT HOOD — An Army psychiatrist about to be deployed to a combat zone overseas shouted a religious slogan in Arabic before fatally shooting 13 people — including 12 soldiers — and injuring 28 others at this sprawling Central Texas military post on Thursday.

Lt. Gen. Robert Cone, the base commander at Fort Hood, said on NBC's Today Show that witnesses heard Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan shout "Allahu Akbar!" before opening fire. The phrase means "God is great!" in Arabic.

You know, whether they meant to or not, Wikipedia is actually turning into quite a good news site - you get the digested version from a lot of different news sources, quite quickly after the event:

Great catch! I hadn't thought of Wikipedia that way. With all the editors, it kind of nullifies the MSM's claims that they have superior fact checking.

Can you imagine this man counseling young soldiers on their return? I think of the mental damage done to our young men and women prior to the shooting.

Him giving counselling: "Confess your guilt, Oh Zionist Crusader!"
