LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — A former Lafayette man wounded in the shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, described it as the most harrowing experience of his military career — which included 13 months in Iraq in 2003 and 2004.

“Hewitt says the shooting was a “tragedy no one could have anticipated.”
Wellllllll...we could start by NOT ALLOWING MUSLIM FANATICS IN THE MILITARY...
How deceived the military must feel, to know our government knew of this Islamist terrorist...I hope the families sue Obama.
***...described it as the most harrowing experience of his military career which included 13 months in Iraq in 2003 and 2004.***
At least in Iraq you had access to firearms, didn’t you!
Col Hunt was on Foxnews saying how nobody could have foreseen this. Same basic PC garbage that we’ve been hearing.
In Iraq he had a weapon......We need police protection on an Army base ? ?
C’mon, let’s have Mall cops at the Mall.......On an Army base, Let’s have right to Carry times 4 or more.
Everyone carrying at a Police station ?
Any Muslim Jihadist attacking the Police ?
Re:not being armed, and being sitting ducks...
I seriously have to refrain from writing what I want to.
and if you missed this...
Obama Used Fort Hood Massacre of Soldiers To Lobby House Health Care Vote
Hunt voted for Obama. Does that matter? Of course it does, his judgement sucks. Just the kind of idiot officer I couldn't stand as an enlisted man.
I wonder: if Major Nidal Hasan had sent a certified letter to the Secretary of Defense containing a complete outline of his plan, a description of the weapons he planned to bring on base, and the armor-defeating ammunition he was going to use... would that have made it possible for the Army to “anticipate this tragedy?”
The Fox lawyer threw it back at him. The guy was making threats, endoring terrorists, pretty simple to see there was a threat.
I did 20+ in the Navy as an enlisted man and I would guess about 10% of the black enlisted community is of the Muslim faith and I'm willing to bet a small percentage of those are radicalized, so Hunt is either in denial or he was completely out of the loop being part of the Officers community.
who decided that soldiers should not carry guns?
(that person should be hanged)
We were wondering the same thing. Someone told me they had a choice, but I think they are told to not carry. I just found an article about it..will post it in a few.
“...These soldiers were entrusted to carry fully automatic, military assault rifles when deployed to Afghanistan, where the shooter was about to be sent. But in America, these same soldiers are disarmed when on base. From the Associated Press: Soldiers at Fort Hood don’t carry weapons unless they are doing training exercises....”
IMO Col Hunt is just as culpable as the shooter in light of the evidence.
