    Fort Hood Shooter Will Question Victims

    FILE - This undated file photo provided by the Bell County Sheriff's Department shows Nidal Hasan, who is charged in the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood that left 13 dead and more than 30 others wounded. Hasan doesn’t deny that he carried out the rampage, but military law prohibits him from entering a guilty plea because authorities are seeking the death penalty. If he is convicted and sentenced to death in a trial that starts Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2013, there are likely years, if not decades, of appeals ahead. (AP Photo/Bell County Sheriff's Department, File)

    The victims of the 2009 Fort Hood shooter will be faced with shooter Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan again in court: Hasan is representing himself and will cross-examine them as witnesses on Tuesday. As Staff Sgt. Alonzo M. Lunsford summed it up: “I will be cross-examined by the man who shot me.” Hasan fatally shot 13 people and wounded more than 30 others when he opened fire at the Fort Hood army base in November 2009. He has been charged 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder and could face the death penalty if convicted. He has acknowledged being the gunman and has said in statements in and out of court that he was trying to protect Taliban leaders from soldiers deploying to Afghanistan.
