$4M and counting: Hasan trial delays add to costs
by Philip Jankowski
An examination of the extended delays leading up to Maj. Nidal Hasan's court-martial shows that the Army has spent roughly $4 million on personnel and other expenditures.
Included in that is the $291,000 paid to Hasan while he has remained in custody since the Nov. 5, 2009, shooting.
Army officials refused to comment in any fashion about the costs arising from the trial. However, they noted that the money had already been budgeted, stating it would have been spent elsewhere if not on Hasan's trial, according to Fort Hood public affairs.
