DOD issues critical report on Ft. Hood


firstread.msnbc.msn.com

NBC News has obtained a scathing report from Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who says that most of the Defense Department's safeguards were "unclear" or "inadequate" to identify the threat and prevent the mass shooting that killed 13 soldiers at Fort Hood in December.
Army Psychiatrist Major Nidal Hassan is charged in the shootings that also wounded 31.
The Secretary's report found that:
-- DOD's commitment to the Joint Terrorism Task Force is "inadequate," which results in "inconsistent" coordination with the FBI. The Joint Task force knew well before the shooting that Hassan was in communications with an al Qaeda sympathizer and recruiter, but that was not reported to DOD or the military.

It seems that the military is always expecting a threat, which in turn there IS, yet sometimes the hardest lessons are when the threat is from the inside, not the outside.

It was unfortunate that our military had to learn this lesson the hard way, [again].

I hope that the families soon can find closure with this all.

I'm just a little bit pissed that liberals have the "right" to bash conservatives but when the tables are turned, we're homophobic racists.

Hey! Screw them all!

I'm all for America, but not a socailsit America like a majority of lazy Americans want... or should I call the people Americans.

The entire world is going to hell and you're going to warn me?

Ha!
