    The military will formally discipline at least six officers, mostly from Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, for failing to take action against the officer accused of carrying out last year's deadly shooting rampage at Fort Hood, according to people familiar with the matter.
    Senior Army officials said the decision to punish so many officers reflects the military's belief that the November assault, which killed 13 people at the Army base in central Texas, could have been prevented if Maj. Nidal Hasan's superiors had alerted authorities to his increasing Islamist radicalization.
    The officials said that as many as eight officers could ultimately be censured over Hasan, mostly with letters of reprimand that effectively end their military careers. The punishments will be detailed in an "accountability review" that Army Gen. Carter Ham, who has been investigating the shootings for several months, will deliver to top Army officials as early as Friday.
    An Army spokesman said that Ham's accountability review would be submitted within days, but declined to comment further on the inquiry.
    People familiar with the matter said the Army had earlier notified eight officers that they were under investigation, including Col. John Bradley, who until recently ran Walter Reed's psychiatry department, and Col. Charles Engel, a psychiatrist who supervised Hasan when he was doing a fellowship at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences[​IMG].

    As usual the real issue is not addressed. The Army should also punish the people who made the officers over Hasan afraid to report him.

    I believe that political correctness played an extremely large role in the officer's decisions to not report Hasan. I hope they pay for their indiscretion.

    I was an infantry officer, four years active duty, and I can't believe the amount of slack they cut that guy. An officer in combat arms would have been out the door at the first hint of trouble.

    That is fantastic and all, but what I am waiting for is a press release saying that Hassan is to be executed at midnight..

    There are several officers that are so terrified of EO complaints they will not discipline their soldiers. If you make it to captain without having an EO complaint and a few IG complaints I'd say that's a pretty good indicator you're too scared to do your job. I've personally had 3 EO's and 7 IG's in the past year. I've been cleared on every single one of them. As long as you are fair across the board and document everything you'll be good to go. It also helps if you're naturally an *******.

    I hope you aren't suggesting that ALL muslims are terrorists and therefore must die...

    The key is to treat everyone like **** :rofl: If you've made Captain without an EO or IG investigation, I'd say you have no business holding a command..I also think that unfounded EO/IG complaints should result in (at the very least) Field Grade NJP....

    But he hasn't even been tried, yet. Surely you are for people getting their due process... Right?

    There is resounding sentiment around here sometimes that would make you wonder...

    Terrorists and unlawful enemy combatants are not afforded the courtesy of due process nor any other legal protection under any global treaty or government agreement......summary execution is the globally recognized method for dealing with them...

    Are you suggesting that the enemy are NOT Muslims?!?!?

    How many of the terrorists we are at war with right now are not followers of their interpretation of the Muslim faith?!?!?

    So are they finally going to admit this was a terrorist attack or are they going to maintain that it's a regular domestic crime comitted by someone who just happened to be muslim?
