Army Secretary John McHugh has ordered disciplinary action for nine unnamed officers in the Fort Hood shooting, according to NBC News. Although the Army’s investigation noted that “no single event” led to the massacre, “certain officers” in command of Major Nidal Hasan “failed to meet the high standards expected of them,” ignoring signs of his increasing radicalization.
Hasan currently faces the possibility of military court-martial for a shooting attack on Fort Hood on Nov. 5, 2009. Hasan is accused of murdering 13 people and wounding more than 30 others in the attack, before he was shot and paralyzed at the scene of the crime. The subsequent investigation showed signs of radicalization before the attack, including a presentation to fellow medical workers that outlined his religious motive for the attack.
