Questions Raised After Second Mass Shooting in Five Years
By Harold Hutchison

Does a ban on carrying guns on military bases that has been in place for over 20 years need to be re-considered? That question is being debated in the wake of the second mass shooting at Fort Hood in five years, and the second mass shooting at a military installation in less than a year.

INSIDER THREAT TO WAR JOURNALISTS?

One Killed, One Wounded by Shooter in Afghan Uniform
By Harold Hutchison

Two journalists were shot, one fatally, during an “insider attack” in Khost province. The attack was similar to those that have normally targeted American and NATO troops.

According to media reports, AP photographer Anja Niedringhaus, who had won the Pulitzer Prize, was killed in the attack, which was carried out by a district police officer. The shooter reportedly shouted “Allah ackbar” before firing an AK-47 rifle at Niedringhaus and Kathy Gannon, a reporter with the Associated Press.

Gun-Grabbers Seek To Use Dead Soldiers to Back Their Agenda
By Harold Hutchison

In the wake of the tragic mass shooting at Fort Hood that left four dead, including the shooter, gun-grabbers are already seeking to push new gun-control measures, using the incident to revive an agenda that stalled at the federal level last year.

According to media reports, anti-Second Amendment politicians like Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) are trying to revive last year’s push for so-called “universal background checks.” The legislation failed in 2013 after failing to overcome a filibuster.

FARNAM ON FORT HOOD

Of yesterday's shooting victims, all were military, and none were armed and able to defend themselves, nor each other, from a gun-wielding, murdering lunatic who apparently didn't get the memo about the Base being a "Gun-Free Zone!"

As soon as the suspect was confronted by military police, he committed suicide, typical MO for active murderers.

Four Killed, Fourteen Wounded
By Harold Hutchison

Fort Hood was hit by the second mass shooting in five years yesterday, leaving four people dead and 16 wounded. As many as six of the wounded were in critical condition according to some reports.

UPDATE: AT LEAST TWO WOUNDED AT FORT HOOD

At least two soldiers have been wounded in a shooting at Fort Hood. A statement by the installation's press center said, "There has been a shooting at Fort Hood and injuries are reported. Emergency crews are on the scene. No further details are known at this time."

A message posted on the Facebook page for the base and III Corps about 50 minutes ago stated, "All personnel on post are asked to shelter in place."

KHOU.com reported at least one person was dead. Fox News reported that "the threat of one shooter" had ended, but that a second shooter may still be on the loose.

WEAKNESS REVEALED, OR SOMETHING ELSE?

By Adm. James A. Lyons, USN (Ret.)
Accuracy in Media

Not many Americans are aware or understand the Obama Doctrine, but it is in full play in the current Ukraine crisis. President Obama’s inept handling of this flash point is not due to his inexperience or incompetence. Quite to the contrary – what we are witnessing is the execution of a planned agenda reflecting his 2008 campaign rhetoric about his promise to fundamentally change America. His doctrine is based on the false premise that dominant U.S. military and economic power throughout the world has been the problem.

A blockbuster story in the Monday Wall Street Journal reveals the terrible damage National Security Agency (NSA) leaker Edward Snowden has done, enabling Russian “war planners” to avoid detection as they evaded U.S. surveillance and staged the invasion of Ukraine.

At the same time, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), says Snowden’s theft of documents has made it harder for U.S. troops to avoid being maimed or killed by terrorist bombs known as improvised explosive devices (IEDs).
