Report: FBI, Army failures preceded Fort Hood massacre

FBI and Army officials repeatedly ignored multiple warning signs that could have prevented the November 2009 massacre at Fort Hood, Texas, according to a long-awaited report released Thursday by two U.S. senators.

The inability to act was a result of both bureaucratic inefficiency and an unwillingness to identify and confront homegrown Islamic extremism, the report concludes.

Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan is accused in the shootings, which left 13 people dead and 32 wounded. He faces a likely court-martial and potential death penalty.

    Thirteen dead...and a potential death penalty? Thing is...if they release this creep, and say he moves in the place next door to you, then you do somerthing to him? You'll be the one on death row or a life sentence.

    Maybe CNN will hook up Maj. Hasan and Coleen La Rose, get them two one way tickets to Egypt, then she'll save the taxpayers money, by (how does CNN put it?), she'll wage violent jihad on Maj. Hasan. Tickets 29.99 on Sphinxmaster.
