Witness says he took, deleted video of Fort Hood shooting

[Updated at 5:19 p.m.] In response to a question about the telephone video, a Fort Hood official, who insisted on anonymity because of the ongoing criminal investigation related to the shooting, said: "Since this matter was raised during the Article 32 hearing, it is for the Article 32 hearing officer to decide whether to make further inquiries to the soldier's chain of command for additional information."

[Original post] The shooting at Fort Hood was captured on video by a soldier using his cell phone camera as he hid from the shooter, but he was ordered to erase it, the soldier said Friday.

Pfc. Lance Aviles spoke of the video as he testified on the third day of the Article 32 military hearing for Maj. Nidal Hasan, who is accused of killing 13 people and wounding 32 in the 2009 shooting.

Aviles said he was ordered by a noncommissioned officer to delete the video on the day of the shooting. He did not describe to the court what the video contained.

He said he saw the gunman stop to reload and considered rushing him. But by the time Aviles got up, he said, the shooter "had already loaded another magazine. So instead of running to him, I ran off to the right."

    his story, the gen. Is very interesting, sad to say hes not completely nuts, it would be easier if he were. Correctme if im wrng gen. He is a veteran who was hurt, used and thrown under the bus, and is mad as hel! For being used to do dirty work for our gov. Now they dont want him he is a huge liability for them. Knows too much just wont share it all. Our govt. Likes kangaroos. He has a message to us. Your govt. Doesnt give a flying phuck about you. At all, give them a chance to phuk you and they will. He liked ted turner bcause he had balls enough to stand up for himsellf, til the jews screwwed him and took his companies

    if it were only that simple, sounds like glen beck got the job instead of him and hes having difficulties coming to terms with it. dont take me too seriously gen. your message needs to be heard; but its hard to hear it clearly through all that hate. not saying you dont have every right to be mad, but again all america is not your enemy. @ at ted turner, see what trying to do the right thing got him, the jews screwed him out of huge sums of money, all legal of course. and he was one with backbone, now jews control alot of what you see on the news. controlled info is essential to brainwash the masses. liberals suck the power from themselves , go hug a tree and stop blowing the enemy
