Pentagon officials say five Americans are dead after a U.S. soldier opened fire at a U.S. base in Baghdad. They say the attacker is in custody.

The officials say the shootings happened on Camp Liberty at a stress clinic, where troops can go for help with the stresses of combat or stress from personal issues.

One senior military official in Washington says it's unclear whether those killed are workers at the clinic or were there for counseling. He says officials also are unsure whether all the dead are members of the military.


Is this guy a random nutter, or is it one of many US soldiers going bonkers from these long and too frequent deployments? The majority of the country want out of the war, but even when the country was behind it, recruitments were so under quota that solders are re-deployed over and over and I think it's driving them nuts. And they aren't getting the proper care back home in between deployments from their medical facilities. Some will never recover from their physical and emotional scars. Some will will just shot up their buddies at Iraq mental health facilities in Iraq like this guy. Please don't be so focused on the economy that you forget the horrors that the military are enduring. Many will continue to be a mess decades after the economy has been revived. My poor, sweet uncle is one.
