You can also throw in there that it is my understanding is that he is actually a psychologist and has been treating soldiers on their return.
I had heard that he was a psychiatrist...the distinction being that means he has a medical degree and has taken the Hippocratic Oath which is built around "....do no harm....".
He has been treating soldiers who have been to the various wars and Fort Hood, I believe, is the centre for American military members suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder. I believe he was waiting to be deployed to Afghanistan to work 'in the field' with soldiers suffering from traumas while over there.
From what I have heard over the past week, some who have been treated by this man and/or attended seminars DID have concerns with some of his talking points but felt that they would have been seen as discriminatory (against Muslims) if they brought this to the attention of his superiors. Talk about hindsight being 20/20.
So sad for the victims and their families.
And quite a mess for the military since they have many Muslim members and how do you address the actions of a "madman" while reassuring others?
