    AP Sources: Defense Dept worker looked into Hasan

    By DEVLIN BARRETT, Associated Press Writer – 2 hrs 34 mins ago

    WASHINGTON – U.S. officials say a Pentagon worker on a terrorism task force looked into Fort Hood shooting suspect Nidal Hasan's background months ago, and concluded he did not merit further investigation.

    Two officials say the Washington-based task force was notified of communications between Hasan and a radical imam overseas, and the information was turned over to a Defense Criminal Investigative Service employee assigned to the task force.

    That worker wrote up an assessment of Hasan after reviewing the Army major's personnel file and the communications.

    The disclosure is important because it shows the Defense Department was aware since late last year of Hasan's contacts with the imam.

    The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the investigation.

    stretch him.
    I'm thinking he might have been talking about what you could nail him for before the mass murder.. so as to prevent it. (ex: subversion or something like that)

    I haven't seen any recent news about possible punishment. You guys really think he might get leniency from a military court? I mean, yeah there's always the insanity defense, but in reality I don't think that works all that often.

    I can't disagree with that. Practicing a minority religion is one thing, but if you are actually sympathizing with the enemy and condoning enemy violence you have no place in the military. Criticize the military all you want, but do it from outside.

    However, as much as I support the death penalty, I'd almost rather this POS spent the rest of his life getting to know 72 "virgins" by the name of Bubba in the federal pen.
    But won't he recruit more people while in the pen?...You say "Bubba is going to get him" but don't you think they'll be some people who will have his back (protection), b/c they are some twisted people who are happy for what he did; afterall, it is prison some folk there can careless about our troops, country, or way of life...

    If you stick him the shoe/lockdown then he may just go crazier then what he already is...

    If you want to go w/ giving him life in prison lets hope it is the shoe, instead of gen pop...

I was not one of the majority wearing the "We Did IT" shirts last November. But I hope they know they sure "Did It", this country is in the worst shape ever. The terrorist love it!!!!!! Shame on all of you who voted all those liberals in!! Find us another Ronnie Reagan. Who stuffed a missil down Kahdafi's chimney to get his attention. Blew up some of his family and then he stopped his crap.

    I can see an insanity plea coming, something like, 'he was picked on for his religious beliefs and it pushed him over the edge'.

    So much for the "Homeland Security" interagency cooperation concept. Interstate cooperation of law enforcement agencies have greater intelligence exchange programs than the Feds. Locals work with, not against, one-another!

    Agree totally with your hope. That last part is what's the problem. We're just too **&^% scared of offending anyone.

    Our country is very tolerant and is afraid of offending anyone's beliefs and now that's being exploited.
    We aren't tolerant, it's that no one wants to stand up and nail this POS to the wall and appear to be the bad guy. It's like they don't want to hurt anyone's feelings and perhaps make a few folks upset by doing the right thing.
