AP (via CBSNews) is reporting, here, that FBI Director Robert Mueller has asked “Ex-FBI director William Webster will conduct an independent review of the bureau’s handling of information gathered about the Fort Hood shooting suspect before the deadly rampage . . .”  The review will expand upon a classified review sent to the President late last month.  By my count that makes at least 6 investigations (2 DoD, 2 FBI, 1 congressional, and the criminal investigation) related to the shootings.  

Here is a link to the official FBI press release.  Notably the FBI press release states, “Judge Webster will coordinate his review with similar reviews underway by Department of Defense (DOD) and DOD-appointed officials, and will follow the DOD time frames. Mueller emphasized that Judge Webster’s review will be careful not to interfere with the ongoing, Army-led shooting inquiry and military legal proceedings.”
