Obama to attend Fort Hood memorial service
Published April 06, 2014

President Obama will attend a memorial service Wednesday for the victims of a shooting at the Fort Hood military base in Texas, a White House official said Sunday.

Adviser Dan Pfeiffer told CBS' "Face the Nation" that the president will attend the event and will be accompanied by first lady Michelle Obama.

Three people were killed and 16 were wounded in the April 2 attack at the military base, near Killeen, Texas.

A Fort Hood spokesman confirms there will be a remembrance ceremony on Wednesday.

Investigators say that an Army truck driver, Spc. Ivan Lopez, had an argument before opening fire.

The base commander hasn't discussed the cause of the argument. The attack was the second at the base since 2009, when 13 people were killed in a shooting by an Army psychiatrist.

Is this because he thinks he can blame these deaths on Bush, and not on terrorism?
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Gun control will probably be the rallying cry this time around.

If he can find a way he will...he ought to blame it on Clinton who took away the right to carry weapons on post..

I haven't been to Ft. Hood.  Is there a good golf course nearby where he can play a round after he finishes lying to the troops? :shrug:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
