Report: Shortfalls Evident Before Ft. Hood Attack

Ad Feedback

Safeguards put in place by the Department of Defense were too inadequate to prevent last November's deadly Fort Hood shooting, a Pentagon report revealed.

The report, unveiled by NBC News, claims the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force knew suspect Nidal Hassan had been corresponding with an al Qaeda recruiter in Yemen prior to the shootings, yet failed to notify the Pentagon.

The military is also under scrutiny for missing warning signs. Many are now questioning whether the U.S. is logistically prepared to prevent future incidents.
