Fort Hood Shooter Will Question Victims

The victims of the 2009 Fort Hood shooter will be faced with shooter Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan again in court: Hasan is representing himself and will cross-examine them as witnesses on Tuesday. As Staff Sgt. Alonzo M. Lunsford summed it up: “I will be cross-examined by the man who shot me.” Hasan fatally shot 13 people and wounded more than 30 others when he opened fire at the Fort Hood army base in November 2009. He has been charged 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder and could face the death penalty if convicted. He has acknowledged being the gunman and has said in statements in and out of court that he was trying to protect Taliban leaders from soldiers deploying to Afghanistan.
