Deadliest Shooting Rampage In US History

At least 33 people were killed at Virginia Tech by a lone gunman. It's unclear what his motive was, and his name has not yet been released. This is another black day for the families of the young people shot and killed, and for our country.

I've been saying for some time that terror would follow us home from Iraq, just not in the same way GWB means it, and it will follow whether we stay there or not. Because we unleashed it. I'm not predicting that the killer is a Marine returned from Iraq, although it might turn out that he is, I'm saying the entire atmosphere of our country has been poisoned. It's been Limbaughterized, Ann-Coultrified. This is the terror we've unleashed in Iraq popping up like fire-ants from the same unholy nest. The Iraqis live with this kind of thing EVERY DAY, only it's more organized. The longer we stay in Iraq, the more things like this will happen here.

Below, one of the victims, Derek O'Dell, describes the shooter as being an Asian man in his 20s randomly shooting the students in his classroom:
