Report: Feds Could Have Prevented Fort Hood Shooting

February 04, 2011  | 

A 14-month investigation into the Ford Hood shootings has concluded that the FBI and Department of Defense had enough information but failed to take action against Maj. Nidal Hasan, according to an op-ed from by the two lead Senators published by the Washington Post.

Hasan is accused of murdering 13 and attempting to murder 32 others when he allegedly headed into the Fort Hood deployment area and opened fire on the unarmed soldiers.

Senators Joseph Lieberman and Susan Collins led the investigation of the Fort Hood killings that concluded that the Department of Defense and the FBI "collectively had sufficient information to have detected Hasan's radicalization to violent Islamist extremism but failed both to understand and to act on it."
