Major Nidal Malik Hasan was a regular customer at a club close to the Texas military base and on one occasion spent six hours there watching women pole dancing.
His behaviour in the lead-up to the shooting spree was similar to that of some of the September 11 hijackers. Mohamed Atta, the group leader, and four accomplices spent time in a strip bar in Las Vegas, while others frequented one in Florida.
Starz, the club visited by Hasan, is just yards away from Guns Galore, the weapons store where he legally bought the semi-automatic pistol he used in the attack.
