OAK CREEK, Wis. (CBSDC/AP) — Authorities tell CBS News that the shooter behind the deadly massacre at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin Sunday has been identified as 40-year-old Wade Michael Page.In one sense I'm glad he's dead - save us the cost of a trial, in another way, I wish he was alive so we could find out why he did it. The Sikhs are peaceful, non-militant...makes no sense.
Page previously served in the U.S. military, but was no longer on active duty, sources tell CBS News.
CBS News reports that Page enlisted in the Army in April 1992 and was given a less-than-honorable discharge in October 1998. He was last stationed in Fort Bragg, N.C., serving in the psychological operations unit.
Sunday’s shooting outside the temple in suburban Milwaukee left seven dead, including the suspect, and three others critically wounded in what police called an act of domestic terrorism.

Police act call Sikh massacre Domestic Terrorism!
I don't mean to downplay this terrible tragedy, but it's interesting that 24-hours later, the police call this Domestic Terrorism. I don't think the murders at Fort Hood have ever been called Domestic Terrorism, or even International Terrorism, just an "isolated incident."
