Second Gunman In Custody At Army's Fort Hood -Report

First, we were told Hasan was dead, and that two suspects - we were led to believe they were accomplices - were in custody. Then the suspects were released, with no explanation given, and Hasan turned out to be alive. Well surprise, now there's a second gunman in custody. I'm not sure what the value of this report is, since it's dated today yet describes the gunman as being detained two hours after the shooting. Is he one of the two originally reported as having been arrested? One thing is certain: the Army is not being very forthcoming in disseminating information on the details of this attack. Since most Americans are satisfied that Hasan was a Muslim extremist who just off and decided to murder some Americans on the 5th of November, and the media is, well, the media, ie the propaganda arm of the State, perhaps there's no real urgency to enlighten people to the details of this case. But rest assured, policy and laws will be altered and created because of this attack. But whatever you do, don't ask any questions about it.

    Dow Jones Newswire -

    A second gunman is in custody after a shooting at the Army's Fort Hood in Texas in which at least seven people were killed and 12 wounded, reports KCEN-TV of Waco. The report comes about two hours after a first suspect was captured, shortly after gunfire broke out.

    Authorities say the gunmen were dressed in fatigues, though it's not confirmed whether they are military personnel. It's also not known if the victims were military personnel or civilians.

    The incident reportedly began at Fort Hood's theater and then moved to the Soldier Readiness Processing Center, Killeen City Public Information Officer Hillary Shine told Fox News. A graduation ceremony was scheduled to take place Thursday.
