Nidal Malik Hasan was harassed by his fellow soldiers and was called names like “camel jockey.”  Ironically, Hasan was suffering from the same kind of stress he was trained to treat.

 

Hasan is an American citizen of Palestinian descent and after the 9/11 attacks, his cousin says he was the target of constant harassment from others in the military.

Nader Hasan believes that what ultimately set his cousin off was his imminent deployment to Iraq.
