Fort Hood Shouted "Allahu Akbar!" Before Shooting

Witnesses to the Fort Hood shooting said Major Malik Nadal Hasan (the shooter) shouted "Allahu Akbar!" before he opened fire. If true, it looks like terrorism is becoming a likely motive for the attack.

"Soldiers who witnessed the rampage reported that the gunman shouted "Allahu Akbar!" — an Arabic phrase for "God is great!" — before opening fire, said Lt. Gen. Robert Cone, the base commander. He said officials had not yet confirmed that Hasan made the comment before the shooting spree."
