'Tell the commanding general to call off all charges or there will be a re-enactment of Fort Hood.' Suspicious note and package found at Fort Benning --Fort Benning: Box of hollow-point bullets and an anonymous note threatening an incident like the one at Fort Hood left at gazebo 21 Nov 2009 (GA) A Fort Benning spokesman says Army officials are investigating whether a suspicious note and package found at the west Georgia post is a viable threat. Bob Purtiman says a soldier found the note and package Thursday morning in an outdoor gazebo. The soldier immediately told a supervisor, who called 911.
Note said Fort Hood-style shooting could happen --Witness: Increase in MP patrols on post, Kelley Hill area of Fort Benning on lockdown status for part of Friday 21 Nov 2009 A box of hollow-point bullets and an anonymous note threatening an incident like the one at Fort Hood, Texas, were discovered Thursday at Fort Benning, Ga., sparking a criminal investigation and greater police presence, a witness told Army Times. According to a witness at the scene, a box of 20 hollow-point shells and a handwritten note were found in the motor pool area between 1st Battalion and 2nd Battalion, 29th Infantry, under the 197th Infantry Training Brigade. "The note said 'tell the commanding general to call off all charges or there will be a re-enactment of Fort Hood,' " the witness told Army Times. He spoke on condition he wouldn’t be identified. After the discovery, he said, military police arrived with dogs, cordoned off a 20-foot perimeter around the box and began dusting for fingerprints and questioning people.
Army refuses to identify Hasan prosecutors, chases away journalists --Judicial order further restricts Hasan 21 Nov 2009 In a court hearing from a San Antonio military hospital room Saturday, the Army obtained a judicial order that placed more restrictions on accused Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, and makes it easier for the military to move him from Brooke Army Medical Center pending trial, according to his lead lawyer. But where Hasan might be moved -- or when -- remained a mystery after the hearing, which lasted an hour and a half and was held in BAMC's Intensive Care Unit, where Hasan is recuperating, the lawyer, retired Army Col. John P. Galligan said. Galligan addressed reporters outside the gates of Fort Sam Houston, where BAMC is located, because the Army did not allow the media to attend the hearing and sidestepped a legal challenge from the San Antonio Express-News that sought access for journalists. Post guards chased away journalists who approached Galligan's vehicle after the hearing because half of the car was still within the outer perimeter gate. Additionally, the Army only supplied vague details of the hearing late Friday after getting inquiries from the media. It even refused to identify the prosecutors.
Senate Votes to Open Health Care Debate 22 Nov 2009 The Senate voted on Saturday to begin full debate on major health care legislation, propelling President Obama’s top domestic initiative over a crucial, preliminary hurdle in a formidable display of muscle-flexing by the Democratic majority. The 60-to-39 vote, along party lines, clears the way for weeks of rowdy floor proceedings that will begin after Thanksgiving and last through much of December.
