FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A military panel's mental evaluation of the Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly shooting rampage at Fort Hood will not prevent the military from pursuing a court-martial, his lead defense attorney said Tuesday.
The report submitted to Army officials and defense attorneys last week offers an assessment of Maj. Nidal Hasan's mental state during the November 2009 shootings that killed 13 and wounded more than two dozen others, and whether he is competent to stand trial.
Military law experts have said that if such a panel were to determine a defendant is not competent to stand trial, or has a severe mental illness preventing him from knowing at the time that his alleged actions were wrong, the case likely would be delayed or even dismissed.

Shouldn’t that be his halal vs. haaram state?
Is there going to be any exam of the Army staff that allowed this nut for years to be in the Army?
Gun Free Zone=Islamists, pshycho’s, cold calculators, shoot here.
If I had the money, I’d like to drag the responsible commander into a court and get him to answer questions about disarming US citizens and if he wasn’t personally responsible.
The pro-Islam culture of political correctness in the Army will be on trial, either during that of Hasan the orthodox Muslim (that’s all he is, infidels, just following the Koran) or the rash of wrongful death lawsuits that are sure to follow.
Wait a minute... this can't be.
Surely if something like this had happened, the President would've made a big deal out of it, visiting the wounded and healing them, etc.
Heck, I'll bet he would've even prayed about it during the SOTU. So, if he didn't, it obviously NEVER HAPPENED!
(Do I really need the sarcasm tag?)
