Fort Hood

As investigators try to determine why Army Spc. Ivan Lopez would open fire on his fellow soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, stories are emerging about the harrowing minutes on the post Wednesday and what are being described as the heroic actions of the military police officer who confronted the gunman.

On the day after a deadly shooting incident on the grounds of Fort Hood, Texas, in which a gunman killed at least three people, wounded 16 and then reportedly killed himself, there was this welcome news:

A congressman faults political correctness in the military for allowing the 2009 rampage at Fort Hood that left 13 people dead and dozens wounded.

Oklahoma Republican Jim Bridenstine says the alleged gunman, Maj. Nidal Hasan, was open about his radical Islamist views before the shooting, but his Army superiors didn't take action for fear of appearing intolerant.
