Military officials were starting Friday to piece together what may have pushed an Army psychiatrist trained to help soldiers in distress to turn on his comrades in a shooting rampage that killed 13 people and wounded 30 in Texas.
The attorney for the Army psychiatrist accused of going on a shooting rampage at Fort Hood said Monday he wants his client's mental evaluation delayed citing a potential conflict of interest with the exam panel. A three-member board of military mental health professionals will determine whether Maj. Nidal Hasan is competent to stand trial which left 13 dead and dozens wounded last year Hasan's attorney John Galligan says one panel member taught at the medical school Hasan attended
Medical source information suggests that Army Major Nidal Malik Hassan, who was shot after opening fire at Ft.Hood in Killeen, Texas on Thursday, is a psychiatrist who worked at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington until leaving for Ft. Hood. According to the Virginia Board of Medicine, he finished his residency at Walter Reed in 2007 and then did a Fellowship in "Disaster and Preventive Psychiatry" in 2009. He has a number of board certifications. Texas Senator Kay bailey Hutchinson says she was told Hasan was upset about being deployed to Iraq and the military has released a statement saying they're not sure about the motive, but they don't believe political terrorism was involved.
