Army’s Fort Hood Report Draws Criticism – The IPT Blog

Leaders of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee are blasting an Army report into failures leading up to last year’s Fort Hood shooting massacre by Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan. In a report issued Tuesday, the Army said it failed to properly identify the threat that existed before the shooting, the Washington Times reports.

While the report recommended greater education for troops on identifying “when individuals may commit violent acts or become radicalized,” it did not mention Hasan by name, nor did it refer to the shooting as a terrorist attack, instead referencing the “tragedy.”
