WASHINGTON (AP) - The Army reportedly will do an internal review
on whether it missed warning signs about an officer accused of
fatally shooting 13 people at Fort Hood.

The Nov. 5 shooting spree blamed on Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who
also was wounded, left 29 people hurt.

The Wall Street Journal reports the probe will focus on Hasan's
six years at Washington's Walter Reed Medical Center.

The Washington Post reports the Army's chief of staff, Gen.
George W. Casey Jr., is forming an investigative panel to look at
the psychiatrist's entire career.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates and other top Defense Department
leadership have held meetings on the tragedy. The Associated Press
reports there could be an Army study, a broader Pentagon study, or
both.

The U.S. Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs
Committee on Thursday will hold a hearing on the massacre.
