5 Dead After U.S. Soldier Opens Fire at Baghdad Base (Video)

This is indeed a tragedy, but let's keep it in perspective here.

This was a rogue soldier with some apparent mental disorder, perhaps even Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

That said, this is by no means a synopsis of the conditions of our soldiers. However, I am deeply concerned the anti-war Left will go crazy over this.

Fox News reports:

A U.S. soldier opened fire on coalition forces attending a stress clinic at a military base outside of Baghdad International Airport Monday, and at least five were killed, the Pentagon and U.S. Command said.

It was unclear how many U.S. soldiers were killed in the shooting at Camp Liberty, but a defense official said the shooter is alive and in custody. Three were wounded, but it was not immediately clear if the shooter was one of them.

Pentagon officials first indicated that an Army soldier shot the others and then turned the gun on himself.
