Associated Press stoops to a new low

I recently read an article about a tragic and horrible occurance in Ft. Drum, where an Army MP is accused of stabbing to death his two best friends, both of whom are also Ft. Drum soldiers.

An overall tragic situation, a soldier who was unable or unwilling to cope with the psychological effects of war who allegedly beat his wife, lost his faith in God, and apparently murdered his two closest friends.

Then I get to this line:

The shooting contains echoes of the Nov. 5 shooting spree at Fort Hood, Texas, where an Army psychiatrist, Maj. Nidal Hasan, is accused of killing 13 people.

So much for editorial oversight. Are the staff writers at the AP so eager to get their bias across that they completely forget the basic facts of the event?

And how in the f**k do you make a comparison between a murderous Islamic fanatic who kills soldiers as part of his misguided holy war against America and a soldier who clearly couldn't handle the psychological toll of war?

News flash to the MSM: Major Hasan did not deploy, and does not have PTSD. Stop marginalizing a legitimate disorder while making a pathetic attempt to justify the actions of yet another Islamic terrorist.
