LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - U.S. Sen. John McCain says last week's
shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas was an "act of terror."
McCain said there were signs that the alleged shooter had shown
"disturbing behavior" and that those signals should have been
passed along to the proper authorities.

The Arizona Republican made the comments Wednesday during a
Veteran's Day speech at the University of Louisville as a guest of
Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell.

The suspected shooter, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, was shot by
civilian police and is recovering, under guard, at Brooke Army
Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas.
