My heart goes out to the families and friends of the victims of the Fort Hood shooting yesterday. I keep thinking of the families so happy to have their soldiers home and then for this to happen.
What strikes me is how much of the original reporting was wrong on this story. Just follow the automatic updates that Allahpundit put up yesterday and see how much of the original story facts were just wrong.
As people plunge through this man's biography, they will try to come up with generalizations about the stresses of combat or his Muslim religion. It's dangerous to make a generalization based on the one incident. Especially when we're just at the preliminary stage of learning about this guy. Better to say that this was one seriously disturbed and twisted, evil man and not try to use his crime to score political points. But the media had a whole evening to fill without much information so a whole lot of fallacious speculating and reporting went on last night.
