or is it as simple as, some one make a mistake or that his pulse rate was so low that the paramedic on spot thought that he is dead?Interesting part to me is that the US Army did nothing to defuse the story that the major was dead when he was in fact alive.
My theory on this is two fold..
1)They were protecting him from anyone that sought to act out revenge on him over these murders.
2) His death was announced to perhaps see if some terrorist group would come forward and declare Major Malik Nadal Hassan a martyr and claim responsibility for the attack..
Just my opinion.
