Army: Shooting Suspect Is Critical, But Stable

A U.S. Army spokesman says the man authorities say went on a shooting spree at Fort Hood is in critical but stable condition.

Spokesman Col. John Rossi told reporters on Sunday at Fort Hood that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan is still hospitalized in Texas. He was taken off a ventilator on Saturday.

Hasan was shot during an exchange of gunfire during Thursday's attack. The military moved him on Friday to Brooke Medical Center in San Antonio, about 150 miles southwest of Fort Hood.

Thirteen people were killed and 29 others wounded in Thursday's attack at Fort Hood.

    It is not the current administration's fault. The fault lies with the military for not recognizing a potential powderkeg. Reap what you sew.

    72? I think its 7 virgins. Re pain and suffering... oh, a lot of people feel that way but of course, that would be inhumane. It would "violate his human rights". (rolling eyes)

    I guess it's good I don't work in the health care field because I could not care for this person. I'd have to pull the plug. I know I'd forget to put the pain meds in the IV!! Then I'd be fired and sent to prison. But I say if he's got to live let him be in as much pain and suffering as possible.

    I hope they put in in front of a firing squad. Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the alleged shooter in yesterday's massacre at Fort Hood, played a homeland security advisory role in President Barack Obama's transition into the White House, according to a key university policy institute document.

    America could never be defeated by strength and power, but it looks like "politically correct" has just about worked it's magic. Sad Days in America! The current administration will never admit to, or accept what happened last week at Ft. Hood... Buzz-

    Uuuhhh... no... this event is NOT the first terror attack on American soil since 9-11. There have been a lot of incidents ranging from small to medium, depending on your view of medium severity.... Personally I think ANY such incident rates as 100% unacceptable, even if everyone escapes unscathed. Some don't get reported and some seem to get a blurb. Some get due attention in the reporting but people obliviously glance at it and don't realize what's being said. Most unfortunate.

    Major Nidal Malik Hasan was not a Catholic Nun named Mary. Mary the Cathloic Nun does not have a gun. Who shouts out on a table, and yells "Alah Hu Akhbar and starts killing people? Not Catholic Mary
