Army to Punish Nine Officers in Connection With Fort Hood Shootings

FOX News

The Army announced Thursday it will punish nine officers in connection with the Fort Hood shootings for "leadership failures relating to the career of Maj. Hasan."

Army doctor Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan is accused of killing 13 people and wounding 29 others on November 5, 2009, at Fort Hood in Texas.

The Army does not identify the officers who will be punished nor does it reveal their specific punishments. A press release from the Army reads:

"The severity of each action varies depending on case-specific facts and circumstances. In certain cases, it may take several weeks to ensure that each officer is accorded appropriate due process and to take final action. In order to protect the due process rights of the officers involved, the Army will not identify them or provide details of the administrative actions at this time. Upon the completion of all cases, the Army will review whether the release of additional information would be appropriate."

Army Secretary John McHugh has sent a comprehensive review of the incident to Secretary Gates.


Wild Thing's comment........

No one spoke up because they would have been accused of bias against a muslim. Political correctness is a cancer in our country.

The leadership failure began and continues at the White House. Any punishment for this needs to start at the White House . It looks as though the are wanting scapegoats, unless they really name names like OBAMA and Janet DHS Queen.

Hasan worked in the White House at one time and was known to Obama. He was part of a transitions team assigned to the White House. That is how Obama met fellow Muslim Hasan. Hasan’s evaluation at Reed was so poor he wasn’t recommended for promotion but that was overridden. Who ordered Hasan promoted to Major. My guess it was the White House.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano stated “we object to—and do not believe—that anti-Muslim sentiment should emanate from this ... This was an individual who does not, obviously, represent the Muslim faith.”

The CinC (coward in charge) is responsible and should be held accountable for the actions of his subordinates. I say it is high time this piece of crap poser is impeached, tried and imprisoned for high crimes and misdemeanors against the American people.

...And the violations of the Constitution.

So now by following Army guidelines on appeasement, 9 officers careers are now in jeopardy because they followed the NON specific rules of not seeing what was in front of their eyes.

Eddie's got this exactly right, it is the white house passing the buck and not accepting responsibility for their gutless policies. Shit flows down hill and people at the bottom end of the food chain are taking the hit for this one.

They now have 9 scapegoats the press can roast. My Lai all over again. and 9 Calley's instead of one. This is pure bullshit.

This is all Bovine Scatology. If any of those officers in his chain of command had tried to do anything, they would have been taken to Social Actions and accused of Islamophobia. They would have been forced to resign their commissions or their careers would have ended as far as promotions go. Just look what's happening now as Rep King tries to investigate radical Islam in America. Democrats are fighting him tooth and nail on this and it's those same Democrats who would have ended the careers of those officers.

As is so often the case in politics and in the military, those who are responsible will get the buck passed down to a lower level. Nine officers will be reprimanded while the Chief of Staff of the Army Gen Casey walks. Admiral Mullen, the Chairman of the JCS is also responsible. These flag officers went the easier route and put PC ahead of their troops. obama and the MSM are to blame for not calling the attack for what it was, an islamic terror attack.
