President Barack Obama is blaming "twisted logic" for the killing of 13 men and women at Fort Hood, and says there is no faith that justifies acts he describes as "murderous and craven."

Obama spoke Tuesday at a memorial service for the fallen.

Maj. Nidal Hasan allegedly went on a shooting rampage at the Army post last Thursday. Soldiers reported that Hasan, who is Muslim, shouted the Arabic phrase for "God is Great" before opening fire.

Obama says no just and loving God looks with favor upon the Fort Hood slayings, and that the shooter ultimately will meet justice "in this world and the next."
