Here, if you can stomach it, is President Obama's statement on the most recent Fort Hood shooting.

The key excerpt: Obviously our thoughts and prayers were -- are with the entire community. And we are going to do everything we can to make sure that the community at Fort Hood has what it needs to deal with the current situation, but also any potential aftermath.

More on that below the video.


Now, about that promise to do whatever the Fort Hood community needs to deal with the current situation. You mean like you promised to do the same thing five years ago after Nidal Hasan went on his terrorist (ahem, workplace violence) rampage?

How did that work out for the victims in 2009?


Why, exactly, should anyone on Fort Hood, anyone associated with this week's shooting, or anyone in this country for that matter, believe anything this guy says?
