    Major Hasan obviously joined the US Army before 911- and the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Sounds like he could have run into a "mental/ideological conflict" as a result. I understand he did try to get out of the armed forces but was denied due to an agreement to serve a certain amount of time in return for the US Army financing of his education. In the end perhaps he exploded mentally and physically into violence, seeing no way out. Sympathy to all affected.

    US needs to open their eyes and start looking at the clues instead of buring our heads in the sand. Terrorism is in our country and we keep masking it and making excuses for these people's actions. Wake up America!

    Karen (san antonio tx). I am in shock with this tragedy..still can believe this happened to our soldiers and in a military base where i take my kids for activities because it's the most safe place... I am a military spouse and my heart goes to the families. At this time we have to pray for our country so noone can listen to the messages this people in the streets of NY are sending out....

    Seriously, we should introduce dance or music therapy to American prisons. It's good for people.

    There has to be more to this than this Major being upset regarding his deployment. Is it possible this officer is an terrorist who was put into our military to commit an act such as this? I am a former us marine now police officer and am absolutely disgusted with this. If he in fact gave a power point presentation condoning suicide bombing then I would have to think that this man has been planning something like this for sometime. New laws need to be established to keep these morons from publicly declaring violence against America. We need change. They should not be allowed to enjoy our first amendment.

    @ Jennifer & Cally,

    I had never heard that either....that Americans did not like to read about foreign places and names!

    this whole affair is grotesque and appalling and a very thorough investigation better be had to answer why and how this disgustingly horrific act came about. combat troops have been suffering for too long – and then this happens? are there words in the english language to describe the sorrow and pain? i think not.
