Letter: U.S. government failing to identify terror risks

To the editor:

We certainly should not need to worry about our government’s vetting process! We need only look at the success with Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan. He joined the U.S. Army after graduating from high school in 1988 and was sent through medical school at U.S. taxpayers’ expense. The 21-year vetting process ended in 2009 when he massacred 13 persons and injured 32 more at Fort Hood, Texas. Is our “vetting” a highly successful program or not?!?
