Convening Authority Meets with Hasan's Counsel

In a final attempt to have their client's case referred as a non-capital court-martial, Major Nidal Malik Hasan's counsel met with LTG Donald Campbell, the general court-martial convening authority, yesterday.  Campbell is expected to decide soon whether to refer the case to a court-martial and whether the death penalty will be an available punishment, should the accused Ft. Hood shooter be convicted at such a trial.
