The Pentagon review will recommend disciplinary action if it finds individuals failed to do their job in the run up to Fort Hood shootings, officials say. The alleged shooter is an Army psychiatrist who reportedly exhibited some troubling behavior.
Lawmakers want to declare that Fort Hood was actually a 'combat zone' during the rampage in order to get victims better benefits. But that would implicitly declare the shootings an act of terrorism.
In the wake of the Fort Hood shooting, the Pentagon will conduct an inquiry to assess its ability to identify and root out internal threats. The review will be headed by two retired service chiefs.
New details suggest the alleged Fort Hood shooter, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, was a misfit who was self-radicalized. The Army is looking into how red flags raised by his earlier behavior were missed.
