Fort Hood: Waiting on First Hand Eyewitness Accounts
Laughing and joking assassin shortly before the carnage?
Lt. General Cone says in this video "The stories from these young soldiers...and I really hope we can can get them in the media here fairly quickly are really remarkable...reports unconfirmed that he was saying Allahu Akbar...the descriptions of the weapons is that they are not military issued weapons..."
ABC News is touting this video as an 'eyewitness account' but it is second hand.
The chaos of the situation will distort perceptions and it's unlikely that anyone will be allowed before the cameras without being intensively briefed beforehand.
Early accounts of multiple shooters are now well covered with the false reports that Hasan was killed.
Will they announce and show what exactly the non military issued weapons used were and the size and number of the magazines?
