President Obama orders an intelligence inventory and review at Fort Hood

The Obama administration issued a Presidential Memorandum today, directing an "immediate inventory" of all intelligence in US Government files relevant to the shootings at Fort Hood last week. The memo to the Secretary of Defense, the Director of National Intelligence and the FBI director, asks that any intelligence on the alleged shooter, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, be included in the inventory.

The President also directed a review to determine how "any such intelligence was handled, shared, and acted upon within individual departments and agencies and what intelligence was shared with others."

According to the memo, John Brennan, Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, will be the point of contact for the inventory and review, the results of which will be provided by November 30.
