Here is video of Fox News' Shepherd Smith interviewing the cousin (Nader Hasan) of Ft. Hood shooter Nidal Malik Hasan. He said their family is devastated by the news, and that Major Hasan was not the kind of person to be violent. His cousin said Hasan was not a "convert" to Islam, but had always been a Muslim. He claimed Hasan was also hurt by comments made due to his ethnic heritage.
The cousin indicated Hasan did not want to be deployed to Iraq. He called Hasan a "good American," and said both of his parents are Americans.
