Ad Feedback

The U.S. Army has reprimanded nine officers for failing to take early action against their fellow officer who's accused in the Ft. Hood, Texas shootings that killed 13.

A Pentagon review of the shooting found that Maj. Nidal Hasan's supervisors expressed concerns about his behavior, but continued to promote him.

Army Secretary John McHugh has initiated "adverse administrative action" against the officers, according to an Army statement released Thursday.

"Although no single event directly led to the tragedy at Fort Hood, certain officers clearly failed to meet the high standards expected of their profession," the Army statement continued.

A report released last month by the U.S. Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee stated that Hasan showed signs of radicalization and antagonism to the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan

The Army is reviewing the evaluation process.

Hasan has been charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. He could face the death penalty.
