Defense secretary orders changes after review of Fort Hood

Washington (CNN) – Defense Secretary Robert Gates is ordering a number of changes to address problems discovered by a review of the military after the deadly shooting at Fort Hood Army Post last November.

Thirteen people died in the shooting at the sprawling base in central Texas. Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan is charged in the case. He has not yet entered a plea.

After the shooting, a number of investigations and reviews were launched. One of the reviews focused on the lessons learned from the incident. In April, after releasing a preliminary report from the review, Gates implemented some two dozen of the recommendations. Friday he released the final "Lessons Learned" review and ordered implementation of most of the other recommendations from that review.

    "KNOW THE FACTS before you make judgement."

    I'm sorry to inform you, but the GOP/conservatives have decided that, because the facts and evidence are contrary to what they would like them to be and do not support their ideologue nonsense, they are going to yell and scream until reality warps itself around their demands. They firmly believe that if they yell it loud enough, repeat it often enough and convince themselves deeply enough then reality will rescind the tweet it sent them saying simply "WRONG!" and bow down to their demands. Unfortunately, the only things trickling down are the stupid, the fear and their pantwetting.
