FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) -The Fort Hood shooting suspect made or accepted wire transfers with Pakistan, a country wracked by Muslim extremist violence.
That's according to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, the
ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Intelligence
In a statement, McCaul says he's confirmed through "independent
sources" that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan (nih-DAHL' hah-SAHN') also
had communications with Pakistan.
Hasan is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder.
The Army psychiatrist is recovering in the intensive care unit
at San Antonio's Brooke Army Medical Center from the wounds he
suffered when police shot him.
Hasan has told his attorney, John Galligan, that he has no
feeling in his legs and extreme pain in his hands.
Galligan says doctors have told Hasan he may be permanently paralyzed from the waist down.
