Testimony Resumes At Fort Hood Shooting Hearing

FORT HOOD, Texas — A hearing has resumed for the Army psychiatrist accused in last year's shooting rampage at Fort Hood.

More witnesses Thursday are describing the scene last Nov. 5 when they say Maj. Nidal Hasan shouted "God is Great" in Arabic, then opened fire on civilian workers and soldiers preparing to deploy from the Texas Army post.

Lt. Col James L. Pohl, a military judge, is the Army investigating officer presiding over the Article 32 hearing to determine if the 40-year-old Hasan should be tried on 13 charges of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder.

Hasan has been in the courtroom each day, seated in a wheelchair. He has been paralyzed from the chest down since Fort Hood police officers fired on him during the attack.
