More Islamic Terrorism?

It's too early to draw conclusions, but it's not too early to ask questions:

Sources say the shooting suspect in Thursday's attacks on the Fort Hood Army Post in Texas is Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, an Army mental health professional with who has ties to the Washington, D.C. area.

The attacks on Ft. Hood left 12 people dead and 31 wounded. Authorities killed the gunman, who is said to be Hasan, and apprehended two other soldiers suspected in the attack.

According to the AP, a defense official said Hasan was a mental health professional—either an Army psychologist or psychiatrist. It's not known if he was treating people at the post.

The AP said that officials are trying to determine if Hasan was his birth name, or if he converted to the Islamic faith at some point in his life.

Update: Fox interviewed Col. Terry Lee who talked with Hasan during a conference. Lee says he heard Hasan say that Muslims should "stand up to the aggressor." There was an investigation of Hassan's remarks, Col. Lee said. (Video)
