Nidal HassanThe Army is reprimanding nine officers for leadership failures in connection with the shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, and their failure to detect problems with the accused shooter, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan (ahb-DEL'-hah-leem HAH'-san).

The Army says in a statement that although no single event directly led to the tragedy, certain officers failed to meet expected standards. A Pentagon review last year found that Hasan's supervisors expressed serious concerns about his questionable behavior and poor judgment but failed to heed the warnings.
