    FORT HOOD, Texas. - President Barack Obama says the nation must never forget the 13 men and women who died during a shooting rampage on a U.S. Army post at Fort Hood, Texas. In prepared remarks, Obama says the shooting is a tragedy, in part because the military members died on U.S. soil and not on a battlefield. Obama on Tuesday planned to use his remarks to praise those who died and calm a nation troubled by the shootings.>>

WASHINGTON. - Military officials say the Army psychiatrist accused of killing 13 and wounding 29 in last week's shooting rampage at his military post in Texas will face 13 charges of premeditated murder under the military's legal system.

The decision makes him eligible for the death penalty if convicted.

A formal announcement about the charges against Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan is expected later Thursday.

Two U.S. military officials described the charges to the AP on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak about the case publicly.

The officials said it is not yet decided whether to charge Hasan with a 14th count of murder related to the death of the unborn child of a pregnant shooting victim.

Obama blames 'twisted logic' for Fort Hood killing

(November 10, 2009)

President Barack Obama is blaming "twisted logic" for the killing of 13 men and women at Fort Hood and says there is no faith that justifies acts he describes as "murderous and craven."

Maj. Nidal Hasan allegedly went on a shooting rampage at the Army post last Thursday. Soldiers reported that Hasan, who is Muslim, shouted the Arabic phrase for "God is Great" before opening fire.

Obama says no just and loving God looks with favor upon the Fort Hood slayings and that the shooter ultimately will meet justice "in this world and the next."

    SPOKANE, Wash. - A woman said her car sustained about $1,000 worth of damage from a hammer Monday night. Court documents identify the aggressor as a man she rejected as he was panhandling. It happened outside a Shadle grocery store. The victim said the whole thing was bizarre. "There was someone just right outside the door asking for spare change," Jennifer Semenza said. "I simply said nope."
