Well, no shit.

WASHINGTON -- A Senate report says U.S. officials should have recognized that an Army major was a "ticking time bomb" before he went on a shooting spree that killed 13 people at a Texas military base in 2009.

The report is sharply critical of the FBI, saying that top leaders must exercise more control over local field offices who failed to recognize warning signs that suggested the shooter was a threat.
The report concluded that both the Defense Department and the FBI had sufficient information to detect that Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan had been radicalized to violent Islamist extremism, but they failed to understand and act on it. And it said the FBI must learn to better use its intelligence analysts, who might have been able to better connect the dots.
