Cable is just doing massive speculation right now, although now they're saying 7 dead, 20 wounded.

Crazy. I wonder what the motivation behind this was.

It does sound like they have somebody in custody, which is good.

Straight from the AP news wires.

Fort Hood closed amid reports of several killed
Eds: APNewsNow.
FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - The U.S. Army has closed its massive
Army base at Fort Hood, Texas, amid reports that several people
have been shot and killed at the post.
The Web site of the base in central Texas has posted an alert
that says, "Effective immediately Fort Hood is closed." The Web
site said that units at the base have been ordered to account for
all personnel.
The site says, "This is not a Drill. It is an Emergency
Situation."
Several television stations in Texas say several people were
both killed and wounded in the shooting. Officials at the base and
in the nearby town of Killeen, Texas, have not confirmed those
accounts.
Fort Hood is located halfway between Austin and Waco.

People are already coming up with coincidences:

11/05: Gunpowder plot w/Guy Fawkes


Chapter 115 of the US Criminal Code =
CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES


Todays Date. 11/5

re: BREAKING: Soldier opens fire at Fort Hood

And don't forget this obvious coincidence:

11+5 = 16. The square root of 16 = 4.

Now, everyone knows there are 4 quarters in a typical football game.

And... we know that football is a civilized version of war (as George Carlin has explained in his comparison vs baseball). That's right... put it all together and we're talking WAR here!!! It's WAR, I tell ya.

Just a coincidence?? I think not.

Also: 11/5 was an American hip hop group from the Hunters Point section of San Francisco.

Coincidence?



I think not!

Supposedly they now have a second shooter in custody. He may have injured some SWAT members.

That's nuts. Is this a "sleeper cell" situation?

Crud, this may be much bigger than what they originally thought. They said this has been going on since 1:30? Is that correct? Over 2 hours?
