Nidal Malik Hasan, a Muslim psychiatrist who was born in Virginia to Jordanian parents, is accused of opening fire on his colleagues, killing 13 and wounding 38. The officer, who was commissioned in 2001, provided counseling to help alleviate psychological stressors that servicemen and woman experience....

I never liked it when George W. Bush used the term "evildoers" to describe al-Qaeda and other terrorists. A lot of other people objected as well, but for different reasons. I didn't like the term because it always sounded to me like he was saying "evil Dewar's," as in the blended Scotch. (This always made some of Bush's statements chuckle-worthy -- "We will not rest until we find the evil Dewar's!") I prefer single malts, but "evil" always seemed unduly harsh. The more common objection to "evildoers" was that it was, variously, simplistic, Manichean, imperialistic, cartoonish, etc. "Perhaps without even realizing it," Peter Roff, then with UPI, wrote in October 2001, "the president is using language that recalls a simpler time when good and evil seemed more easy to identify -- a time when issues, television programs and movies were more black and white, not colored by subtle hues of meaning.

Lt. Col. Juanita Warman had been at Fort Hood only 24 hours, preparing for deployment to Iraq, when she and 12 others were gunned down there earlier this month. She was the highest-ranking soldier killed in the attack. "I kept thinking, 'She can't be in the processing center.' She had just gotten there, she had more training to undergo. She was not due to leave until the end of November," her husband, Philip Warman, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I knew she was going in harm's way in Iraq.

I was saddened by the news of another senseless mass shooting at Fort Hood on Wednesday that left three soldiers dead and 16 people wounded ( "Shooter called talented, quiet," April 4). My thoughts and prayers certainly go out to the victims' families and friends. Once again, a lone perpetrator with psychological issues was able to take the lives of innocent people and wound several more - in this case, many of those who have made great sacrifices to defend our country. Unfortunately, this horrific circumstance brought to mind a quote by Wayne LaPierre of the National Rifle Association.

FORT HOOD, Texas - - Military officials on Thursday filed 13 charges of premeditated murder against Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who is accused of gunning down his fellow soldiers last week, setting the stage for the most high-profile court martial in a generation. The charges carry the potential of the death penalty, which the military is widely expected to seek but has not formally announced it is pursuing. Because the 39-year-old psychiatrist is still an active duty soldier, military courts have jurisdiction rather than civilian ones.

The gunshots came out of the blue. An Army psychiatrist, trained to treat soldiers under stress, allegedly opened fire Thursday in a crowded medical building at Fort Hood, Texas. When the assault ended minutes later, the attack had become what is believed to be the largest mass shooting ever to occur on a U.S. military base. Twelve were killed and 31 wounded. Nidal Malik Hasan, a major who had made a career in the military, fired a pair of pistols, one a semiautomatic, shooting and scattering people as they waited to see doctors, according to authorities.

Lt. Col. Juanita L. Warman arrived at Fort Hood less than 24 hours before a gunman opened fire. In the hours that followed, relatives tried to assure Warman's mother, Eva Waddle, that she was likely safe. "I said, 'Mom, it's fine,' " said Warman's sister, Tammy Harper of Pittsburgh. "'There's 51,000 people there [at the base]. There's no way.' " When the phone rang shortly after 10 that night, Harper figured it was her mother calling to say she'd finally gotten word from Warman.

The suspect in the attempted bombing of the Army recruiting center in Catonsville apparently drew inspiration from an array of websites and radical Islamic leaders, including a U.S.-born cleric who has been targeted for assassination by the Obama administration, according to an FBI affidavit. Anwar al-Awlaki, the American imam who has become one of the world's best-known advocates of violence against the United States, was described by bombing suspect Antonio Martinez as "my beloved sheikh," according to the affidavit.

Sadly, it seems that the old "going postal" concept has been geographically supplanted by the recent carnage at U.S. Army bases that have been transformed into shooting galleries, most notably Fort Hood, Texas ( "Fort Hood shooting: Iraq vet was being treated for mental health issues ," April 3). If this trend doesn't send up a major red flag regarding post-combat counseling, I do not know what will. These veterans are treasured people, mostly very young kids, male and female alike.

It's time that the paper generals at the Pentagon go. They are more concerned about the gays in the military and women in combat than protecting our soldiers on American soil ( "Fort Hood shooting: Iraq vet was being treated for mental health issues," April 3). There are tens of thousands of workers at the Pentagon who have never dodged a bullet and make five times as much money as our soldiers. After the first shootings at Fort Hood, they learned nothing and then we had the same thing happen at the Navy Yard.

The deadly shooting at one of the region's largest military facilities Monday reopened the debate about whether officials have done enough to secure the nation's massive portfolio of domestic bases. At least 13 people were killed and several more were wounded, authorities said, when a 34-year-old Texas man and former Navy reservist allegedly opened fire from inside the Washington Navy Yard in one of the most violent such incidents ever on a U.S. military installation. National security analysts say the Pentagon has improved security at its posts following the 2001 terrorist attacks and, more recently, the 2009 shootings at Fort Hood, Texas.
