    Once his motives are known we will find out. There is still no connection to an outside terrorist organization helping to plan this.
    It may be an individually planned terrorist attack

    We will see

    Only if every other multiple shooting is classified as a terror attack also.

    It depends on the religion of the shooter you see. If he is christian and a nut, he is a nut...if he is muslim and a nut, he is a terrorist.

    Well, at least according to fox.

    I think it does qualify as a terrorist attack. Even though the Major was or seems to have been working alone, the attack was made to advance his radical religion beliefs against unarmed helpless victims.

    The term “terrorism” means premeditated, politically or Reliegion motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets.

    The troops were unarmed and were not in a combat situation.

    Read this article and the accompanying (extensive) slide pak....if that doesn't allow you a peek into Maj. Hassan's mind and convince you the nature of his attack was Islamic terrorism, nothing will.

    Maj. Hassan created a slide pak before his attack that *clearly* demonstrates his motives.

    Please review the deck (ALL of it, and it is about 50 slides, quite lengthy and a *lot* of material....).

    Pay special attention to the last 20-30 slides. THOSE slides clearly state his motives.

    Maj. Hassan is an Islamic Terrorist. Period.
