Nidal Malik Hasan, left, listens during Hasan's Article 32 hearing inside the U.S. Magistrate court today in Fort Hood, Texas. Hasan, 40, is charged with premeditated murder and attempted premeditated murder in a Nov. 5 attack , which killed 13 people and wounded 32 others in a processing center where soldiers were making final preparations to deploy. The Article 32 hearing, which will determine whether there is enough evidence to put the Army psychiatrist on trial, was adjourned for the day Tuesday when defense attorneys asked for a nearly month-long delay.  (AP Photo/Pat Lopez)
