29. "the guy went nuts"
Are you a psychologist? According to the reports from the base, Nader Hasan was. I don't think he "went nuts." Military personnel who witnessed the carnage and the aftermath, have stated that Hasan was very deliberate and calculating as he killed. In fact, he managed to reload at least two times during murder spree and the shots he fired were very well placed - according to one military official, this indicates that he (Hasan) maintained a high level of focus as he committed these murders.

According to at least one fellow soldier, Hasan said that "Muslims had a right to rise up attack the U.S." Given all of these things and his apparent battle cry of "Allah Akbar," my thoughts are that, this guy didn't "go nuts," but instead came to a place in his thinking that, the best way to "exercise" his views was to murder those who didn't share his.

Just my 2-cents.
