Walter Reed Officers Disciplined For Hasan, Fort Hood Shooting

Finally some good news from this whole mess.

Maj. Nidal Hasan went on a November 2009 shooting spree that left 13 dead and 32 injured.Nine Army officers received reprimands for missing the warning flags raised by accused Fort Hood killer Maj. Nidal Hasan as he rose through the ranks of the military.

The nine officers – all ranked lieutenant or above – were sanctioned with either oral reprimands or possible career-ending written letters of censure, said Army Secretary John McHugh.

The secretary said the officers failed to meet the “high standards” expected of Army officers when they supervised Hasan at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington.

The harsh sanctions “send a clear message to everyone that the Army will not tolerate such negligence and passivity in reaction to clear signs that a soldier is radicalizing to Islamist extremists,” said Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.)
