Terror attack at Fort Hood? Another Mass Shooting Targeting our Military

A shooting broke out this afternoon, in what looks like it could be another terror attack aimed at military officials stationed at Fort Hood, Texas.

The shooting started late this afternoon as an unknown gunman fired multiple rounds, injuring at least 14 people stationed at the base. As of now, the base remains on lock down and it appears the shooter, identified as 34-year-old Spc. Ivan Lopez, has died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Injured personnel are being transported to Carl R. Darnall Medical Center and Scott & White Hospital in Temple has confirmed that they have a command center in place and are receiving patients from the Fort Hood.

Just after 5 p.m. local time, Fort Hood officials released an official response through twitter, telling all staff to shelter in place, close doors and stay away from windows. The shooting is believed to have taken place at the Medical Brigade Building.

In November 2009, 13 people were killed and more than 30 others were injured when a Muslim extremist, Maj. Nidal Hasan, opened fire on the base. To this day, the Obama administration has refused to classify the event as an act or terror, instead calling it an “act of workplace violence.”

But earlier this week, government officials may have known some type of attack was coming. In fact, according to a Fox News report from yesterday, FBI officials were searching for a recent Army recruit believed to be planning a “Fort Hood-inspired jihad against U.S. soldiers.”

“On 20 March 2014, the Kansas City Division FBI became aware of an individual named BOOKER aka Muhammad Abdullah Hassan who had publicly stated his intention to commit jihad, bidding farewell to his friends and making comments indicating his jihad was imminent. BOOKER had been recruited by the US Army in Kansas City, Mo., in February 2014 and was scheduled to report for Basic Training on 7 April 2014. Kansas City Division Agents interviewed BOOKER on 20 March 2014.”

The alert, whose legitimacy was confirmed by military and law enforcement officials, says Muhammad Abdullah Hassan was recruited by the U.S. Army in Kansas City, Mo., in February 2014 and was scheduled to report for basic training on April 7.

While today’s shooter appears to be a different man than mentioned in the FBI bulletin, the timing is highly suspect and suggests military personnel may need to remain on high alert.

  1. I am thinking you are going to be seeing a lot more of this. After a century of global violence, Americas chickens are coming home to roost. It does make more sense to take out the hornets in the nest. Maybe if you want to support your troops you will take away their uniforms and send them home with a rifle to protect their families from the local police while they are away dying from bankers wars while their families are under attack by the police state.

  2. A news commentator made an idiotic remark yesterday regarding Ft Hood and I feel I have to comment on it. He stated, “what more can be done to up the security on military bases and the ready access of troops to weapons?” First of all, this commentator never served one day in the military. How can he ask such a question if he has never been there? (The Ernie Pyles are all gone) The thing is, the basic mission of the US Army is to defend this country. If not without ready access to weapons tod do that, what then? Bad words. I think a possible solution is to bring back the draft, not registration, but draft. This time it will be a universal one for both male and female, like in ancient Greece.I had to serve my time so everyone else can too. I think that after a number of these commentators serve their time in the Infantry, they might have a better understanding of what it is like to be in uniform and bite their tongues before making such comments as yesterday. By the way, as a side note, Ambien is for the treatment of insomnia NOT a psychiatric condition.

    • Uhm, I believe Clinton disarmed military members on base, aside from maybe the security at the enterances. which explains why they put them on lockdown and said to lock the doors and stay away from windows and 13 people where injured.. if they all had access I doubt it would have gotten past 2 injured.
