FBI Failed to Investigate Fort Hood Shooter Despite Danger Signs
Despite strong evidence that U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Hasan wanted to kill civilians and supported suicide bombings before he killed 13 people in the 2009 attack on Fort Hood, Texas, the FBI never launched an investigation because of concerns over political correctness, The Associated Press reports, citing a lawmakers briefed on a new report about the terrorist attack.
Hasan was even communicating with terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki, according to the AP.
The review by former FBI Director William Webster shows the agency was concerned over the fallout of investigating an American Muslim and never pursued the case.
Saying the issue was too sensitive, the agency never investigated Hasan, according to the AP.
