Oh, JD, I know the answer to that. I watched it. Mostly they move them from installation to installation to be somebody else's problem. They won't risk bad OER's or that upcoming promotion. Much like they did the nutjob responsible for the Fort Hood killings. They moved him all around on Bush's watch. Do I blame Bush for those killings, absolutely not. His superiors are a different story. I watched how they hung out lower enlisted for a DUI to dry, but an Officer would get a smack on the hand and moved to another command. It happens all the time. I seen up close and personal in my career with the DOD. I also read allot on the Major and the failures of his superiors to weed him out of the Army. A real fu for the military. Read up on him and see how many signs there were they ignored. It was neither Bush's or Obama's fault that happened. Where were their crystal balls?<quoted text>If a post cmdr has a high rate of DUI's and doesn't do anything about it, what happens?
Nidal Malik Hasan,(born September 8, 1970, in Arlington County, Virginia) is a United States Army Medical Corps officer and sole accused in the November 5, 2009, Fort Hood shooting, which occurred less than a month before he was due to deploy to Afghanistan.Hasan has been charged in the mass shooting with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted murder. As of March 2013, court-martial proceedings are scheduled to begin May 29, 2013.
During the six years that Hasan worked as an intern and resident at Walter Reed Medical Center, colleagues and superiors were deeply concerned about his inappropriate behavior and comments, described by some as "paranoid" and "schizoid". The 39-year-old Hasan was not married and has been described as socially isolated and stressed by his work with soldiers and upset about their accounts of warfare. At Fort Hood, he took an apartment away from other officers. Two days before the shooting, he gave away much of his belongings to a neighbor.
Prior to the shooting, Hasan had expressed extremist views. An FBI investigation concluded that his emails with the late Imam Anwar al-Awlaki were related to his authorized professional research and that he was not a threat. The FBI, Department of Defense and U.S.
Senate all conducted investigations after the shootings. DOD classified the events as "workplace violence," pending prosecution of Hasan in a court martial. The Senate released a report describing the mass shooting as "the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil since September 11, 2001."
Investigators in the FBI and U.S. Army determined that Hasan acted alone and they have found no evidence of links to terrorist groups. They are satisfied that his communications with Awlaki posed no threat at the time. The decision by the Army not to charge Hasan with terrorism was controversial, and there was public debate.
This is a prime example of passing the buck in the military. Just pass off to be someone else's problem and hope he don't kill anybody. What a shame.
