Wochit 1:07 mins

The Army psychiatrist accused in the deadliest mass shooting ever on a U.S. military installation, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, planned to "kill as many soldiers as he could" and tried to clear the area of civilians, a military prosecutor said during the opening day of the trial at Fort Hood. The trial of an Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan, accused of one of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history began under heavy security, nearly four years after 13 soldiers were killed and 32 others were wounded at the Fort Hood military base in Texas. The AP reports that a row of shipping freight containers, stacked three high, created a makeshift fence around the courthouse. The man accused of plowing his car through the Venice Beach boardwalk, deliberately running people over and killing an Italian newlywed, has a long history of arrests, including one for reckless driving.

Win. Gloat. Repeat.
