Major Hasan update

The Army Times reports that the prosecution is being bolstered for the court-martial of Major Hasan for his court-martial at Fort Hood.

A senior military official said Friday that a new lead prosecutor has been appointed in the Fort Hood shooting case, a man who secured the death penalty in a similar case four years ago.

Col. Michael Mulligan will head the prosecution of Maj. Nidal Hasan, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the investigation.

No word on when the military will assign a death penalty experienced military defense counsel to the case.

No word on the AR 15-6 investigation into the unauthorized disclosure of information about the case from a person who has been told not to say anything to the media, but who apparently has.
