‘I am the shooter,’ Nidal Hasan tells Fort Hood court-martial
"I am the shooter." Maj. Nidal Hasan made that blunt declaration Tuesday at the outset of his court-martial in the 2009 massacre at Fort Hood. The Army psychiatrist is charged with killing 13 and wounding 32 at a processing center for soldiers heading into combat zones overseas. "The evidence will clearly show that I am the shooter," Hasan told the panel of 13 senior officers who will decide his fate.
