Fort Hood - Reporter
It was the deadliest act of violence committed on a US military base in American history. Yesterday a barrage of gunfire left 13 people dead and wounded 28 more at the U.S. Military Base in Fort Hood, Texas.
The alleged shooter is an Army psychiatrist, who is reported to have been distressed about his impending deployment to Iraq. Major Nidal Malik Hasan is in hospital this morning. Two other soldiers were detained and later released.
For the latest on the situation, we were joined by Jennifer Westaway. She is CBC News Correspondent and she was in Fort Hood, Texas this morning.
Fort Hood - FBI
There are reports that federal law enforcement officials were aware of Nidal Malik Hasan and that he had come to their attention at least six months ago, because of alleged internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other alleged threats.
Officials had not opened a formal investigation. That news is likely to provoke criticism - that law enforcement officials should have done more to stop the suspect. But according to Steven Pomerantz, it's not quite that simple. He is a former Assistant Director and Chief of Counter-Terrorism with the FBI. He was in Fairfax, Virginia.
Fort Hood - Citizen Soldier
Yesterday's shooting at Fort Hood was not the first incident of an American soldier opening fire on his or her comrades. Last May, Sergeant John Russell walked into a military clinic in Baghdad and began shooting. When he was done, five American servicemen were dead, including Navy Commander Charles Keith Springle.
Robert Goodale was a friend of Commander Springle. He is also a director of the Citizen Soldier Support Program at the University of North Carolina. Robert Goodale was in Washington DC.
IRA Bombing and Forgiveness
We started this segment with some tape of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher responding to the bombing 25 years ago at the Grand Hotel in Brighton, England. The man who planted that bomb was an IRA operative named Patrick Magee. His intent was to kill British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. She survived. But the bomb killed five people and injured many others. Patrick Magee received 8 life sentences for the bombing. But he was released 10 years ago, under the terms of the Good Friday Agreement.
One of the people killed in the blast was British MP Anthony Berry. His daughter Jo Berry is now a peace advocate who has founded a charity called Building Bridges for Peace. She has spent many years trying to come to terms with her father's death. And among other things, that has meant seeking out and sitting down with Patrick Magee.
We asked Jo Berry and Patrick Magee to share a microphone in a tiny, cramped studio in Stoke-on-Trent, England and to share their thoughts about the Brighton Bombing, 25 years later.
There are heaps of parenting books and mounds of interactive DVDs out there. But when it comes right down to it, most parents end up going with their gut ... at least some of the time.
According to Po Bronson, the fact that so many parents are resorting to instinct could be a problem. That's because he says there's a good chance that your instinct is off. Po Bronson is the co-author of NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children. He was in San Francisco.
