article imageMajor Hasan charged by Army

By Michael Bearak     Dec 2, 2009 in Crime
The United States Army officially charged Major Nidal Hasan with 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder today. That on-top of the 13 counts of premedited murder.
The United States Army added additional charges against Major Nidal Hasan with 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder to his already 13 counts of premeditate murder for his shooting rampage last month. These charges came just after Major Hasan's attorney was notified that the Army is planning to have his client evaluated to determine his ability to stand trial. This according to Fox News.
On November 5 Major Hasan opened fire in a Fort Hood building, where he too was stationed, firing two pistols, once of which was a semi-automatic that could fire up to 20 rounds without reloading. At the time people reported hearing Hasan yell, "Allahu Akbar" which means "God is Great" in Arabic. The building where Major Hasan opened fire is one where soldiers must report before deploying and again when they first return.
Currently Major Hasan is still in intensive care at a hospital in San Antonio, Texas. His attorney, John Galligan, said he is unaware of when the evaluation of his client will take place and that calls to the Army have not been answered.
Fort Hood is located outside of Ft. Worth, Texas and is home to the 1st Cavalry Division, First Army Division West, 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment, and 41st Fires Brigade, among other divisions. For many years Fort Hood was billed as the largest military base in the world but recently has been replaced by Ft. Benning.
