Fort Hood

Shooting Prompts Full Pentagon Review

In the wake of the Fort Hood shooting, the Pentagon is planning a full review of its procedures for keeping a watch on potential problems in their ranks. The investigation would look beyond the particulars of Nidal Malik Hasan, with Defense Secretary Robert Gates wanting a complete review. “This is shaping up to be a DoD effort,” said Pentagon press secretary Geoff Morrell. “This is larger than the Army. There are issues that need to be looked at department-wide.”
