Obama was once again called upon to offer solace to the nation after a second tragic shooting incident at Fort Hood military base. "Part of what makes this so painful is that we've been here before. This tragedy tears a wound still raw from five years ago. Once more soldiers who survived foreign war zones were struck down here at home where they're supposed to be safe," said a deeply saddened Obama. "We still do not yet know exactly why, but we do know this: we must honor their lives, not in word or talk, but in deed and in truth."
