The Shootings At Fort Hood

Aug 7, 2013 — Maj. Nidal Hasan conceded on the first day of his trial that the evidence will show he killed 13 people and wounded others. Now, it looks like he'll try to use the trial to "vent his religious or ideological beliefs," reports NPR's Martin Kaste. So far, the judge has kept that from happening.

Jul 2, 2013 — Even if he wanted to, Maj. Nidal Hasan was barred from entering a guilty plea to the 13 murder counts he faces in connection with a mass shooting in 2009. The Uniform Code of Military Justice prohibits such a plea in cases that could end with the death penalty. Experts say the code goes to great lengths to protect the individual's rights.

Jan 21, 2010 — The Army said it's going to decide whether psychiatrists at Walter Reed Army Medical Center "failed to take appropriate action" against shooting suspect Nidal Hasan and were "derelict" in their duties. Among the doctors apparently under investigation is the only supervisor who actively tried to kick Hasan out of the psychiatry program.

Dec 1, 2009 — Accused gunman Maj. Nidal Hasan sent 18 e-mails to a radical imam in Yemen before the attacks, but law enforcement officials in Washington who were looking into his behavior saw only two of them. Confusion between two FBI field offices kept law enforcement officials from reviewing all pertinent information about Hasan, investigators tell NPR.

Nov 25, 2009 — NPR has reconstructed what officials did or didn't do over the past year with regard to Maj. Nidal Hasan, the alleged Fort Hood shooter. Sources say it's likely that the FBI, which looked into Hasan last winter, may have missed clues about his character because it got information from the wrong Army file.

Nov 18, 2009 — In a letter obtained by NPR, Nidal Hasan's top supervisor at Walter Reed outlined "serious concerns" about Hasan's "pattern of poor judgment" and "lack of professionalism." The memo says he proselytized to patients, mistreated a homicidal patient and hardly did any work.

Nov 18, 2009 — The Connecticut senator says the homeland security committee will try to determine whether the deadly shooting at the U.S. Army post in Fort Hood, Texas, could have been prevented. Lieberman acknowledges it will be difficult to proceed without the Obama administration's cooperation but says he is confident the issue can be resolved.

Nov 13, 2009 — As Congress prepares to examine whether the government mishandled reports of behavioral issues with Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, the suspected gunman in the Fort Hood shootings, one key question being raised is: Could terrorism have been a motive? Investigators warn it's too early to speculate.

Nov 13, 2009 — Family members say Maj. Nidal Hasan had been looking for an exit from the military because he didn't want to participate in fighting Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan. Advocates of conscientious objector status say if it were more liberally applied, it might have given Hasan a way out.
