I knew it.

Was anyone else here skeptical about the accounts that Muslim terrorist Nidal Hasan (the Fort Hood murderer) had been brought down by a petite female policette? I’m sure a lot of you were.

Guess what? We were right:

At Fort Hood, Witness Credits Second Officer

KILLEEN, Tex. — Sgt. Kimberly D. Munley has been applauded as a hero across the nation for shooting down Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan during the bloody rampage at Fort Hood last week. The account of heroism, given by the authorities, attracted the attention of newspapers, the networks and television talk shows.

But the story of how the petite police officer and the accused gunman went down in an exchange of gunfire does not agree with the account of an eyewitness who had gone to the base’s processing center, where the shooting occurred, to conduct business before being deployed.

The witness, who asked not to be identified, said Major Hasan wheeled on Sergeant Munley as she rounded the corner of a building and shot her, putting her on the ground. Then Major Hasan turned his back on her and started putting another magazine into his semiautomatic pistol.

It was at that moment that Senior Sgt. Mark Todd, a veteran police officer, rounded another corner of the building, found Major Hasan fumbling with his weapon and shot him.

A man, Mark Todd, was actually the hero of the day. I am completely unsurprised.

    Great find!Although I don't really see what size or sex has anything to do in being capable in shooting anyone, it's pretty lame how the media completely ignored Mark Todd.So did Kimberly shoot the guy at all or did she get a few shots in.

    Oh yes, I also was skeptical.

    "Although I don't really see what size or sex has anything to do in being capable in shooting anyone,"I would guess that of all the people who can think reasonably clearly under extreme stress, a solid majority are men. We are all descended from lots of men who were able to keep their heads in battle and fight reasonably well. So it stands to reason that men will do better in firefights.
