[Updated at 11:18 a.m.] The prosecution has completed presenting its case against alleged Fort Hood shooter and Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan.
The investigating officer has recessed the proceedings until November 15th, at which time the defense will have an opportunity to present its case.
[Updated at 10:18 a.m.] The prosecution said it plans to wrap up its case against alleged Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan on Thursday, and Hasan's legal team will present its defense in more than two weeks.
The prosecution has called more than 50 witnesses who have delivered chilling testimony about the shooting rampage that left 13 dead at a Texas military base. Hasan is the subject of an Article 32 hearing, which will determine if there is ample evidence to proceed with a court martial.
The former Army psychiatrist is charged with killing 13 people and wounding dozens more in a November rampage.
Witnesses have described floors covered in blood and the "clack, clack" of Hasan's boots as he walked with spent shell casings trapped in their treads. Army Criminal Investigation Division Special Agent Kelly Jameson said 146 shell casings had been collected, and other sources said 68 were collected outside, for a total of 214.
Army investigators said Wednesday that Hasan had 177 rounds left when he was finally shot down by police.
Nine people died after being shot in the Army medical processing center, and four more died after they were rushed to the base hospital.
The defense has been told it can begin presenting its case November 8.
A pause in the proceedings had been planned to allow Fort Hood to mark one year since the shooting and to honor the victims as well as soldiers and civilians who exhibited special heroism.
Perhaps rather than wasting your time posting on a forum that is in English with your jibberish, you should spend more time mastering the language, Dr. Bad.
Now shoo before I sick Chuck Norris on you.
it goes to show how screwed up our and the military judicial systems are . there shouldn't be a question if he should be court martialed. how stuped!!!!!!! there shouldn't be any question if he should be put to death. al of this is a waste of time and the tax payers money. there are to many rights here.
thank you, couldn't agree more jdvoo. just kill him, he has no right to live. our liberal run country needs to toughen up and quit worrying about human rights
I can't believe they need evidence just to proceed against him. He deserves to swing from the gallows. I hope that if he doesn't get the death penalty, he'll at least get beat to death in a military prison.
ARE U CRAZY! THE ONLY REASON WHY U ARE STILL ALIVE WHEN U WAKE UP IS BECAUSE THE MILITARY HAS FOUGHT FOR YOU!!!!
cast out the infidel! proof our soldiers will be coming home to a new war soon>
go play politics and word games.
Alliens exist ... they just wait for Chuck Norris death to attack us!

The Highlander movie was actually based on Chuck Norris's life. There can be only one.
if you watch the ring you die in 7 days,if you look at Ckuck Norris you die instantly
They once had a showing of Walker Texas Ranger in 3D. There where no survivors
Chuck Norris once created an iPhone out of nothing but a pen, a gameboy color, 1 christmas light bulb, and his own fingernail.
and Mariah is just as big a war criminals as you are.
Now Mehdi, mearly spamming an article will get you nowhere. You must pick your targets carefully and selectively. You need to identify a person who is very naive and unintelligent. After identifying one, you need to be very sophisticated in how you approach the target and then insult them in a way that will cause them to show their true childish age as they lash out at you in anger because they are highly upset at your trolling them out. Similar to what I am doing to you at this very moment. ðŸ˜‰
