New Hood Commander Likely to Make Decision in Hasan Case

We earlier noted that Ft. Hood is pending a change of command that might affect the anticipated convening of a court-martial for Major Nidal Hasan, the officer charged with opening fire there in November 2009.  It now appears the incoming commander, MG Donald Campbell, rather than current commander LTG Robert Cone, will make the decision as to whether to convene a court-martial and whether to refer it as a capital case.
