Gates Accepts Fort Hood Panel Recommendations

According to a Pentagon announcement, Defense Secretary Robert Gates has received and accepted the recommendations of a panel he put together after the November murders at Ft. Hood by Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan. In brief, they are:

(1) Expand the pilot program to fully deploy eGuardian as the DoD-wide force protection threat reporting system to handle suspicious incident activities. The eGuardian system, which is FBI-owned and maintained, will safeguard civil liberties, while enabling information sharing among Federal, State, local, and tribal law enforcement partners, including interagency fusion centers.

(2) Complete the deployment of the Law Enforcement Defense Data Exchange system (D-DEx) allowing all DoD law enforcement agencies to share criminal investigation as well as other law enforcement data as appropriate. D-DEx will be a consolidated database to enable organizations across the Department to query, retrieve, and post criminal investigation and law enforcement data in a single repository.

(3) Establish the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and Americas’ Security Affairs as the DoD lead for the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force program.

(4) Strengthen DoD’s antiterrorism training program by incorporating lessons learned from the Fort Hood incident, Department of Homeland Security best practices on workplace violence, and civilian law enforcement active shooter awareness training.

This won’t satisfy the likes of Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), who wanted Muslim soldiers singled out as extremist risk threats. “I believe in racial and ethnic profiling,” Inhofe confessed during a January hearing about the Fort Hood investigation.
