White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters onboard Air Force One Tuesday that an ongoing investigation into the tragedy of Ft. Hood and alleged gunman Maj. Nidal Hasan is currently underway. The FBI and the Department of Defense are jointly and cooperatively in this investigation to “figure out what would motivate an individual to carry the type of act that the major carried out,” Gibbs explained.

The Press Secretary also shot down earlier news reports that President Obama had made a decision regarding American troop numbers in Afghanistan. Some media outlets have reported that the President plans to add an addition 30,000 to 40,000 troops to combat Al-Queda and the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Gibbs denied that the President had made any crucial decisions about American troops in Afghanistan and would meet with his National Security team on Wednesday to discuss four options on the table.
