WASHINGTON -- An official says ex-FBI director William Webster will conduct an independent review of the FBI's probe of the Fort Hood shooting suspect.

The official says FBI Director Robert Mueller has asked Webster to take a look at how the bureau handled information about Maj. Nidal Hasan before the shooting at the Texas military base that killed 13.

The official was not authorized to discuss the matter before an official announcement and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Many government agencies are reviewing their handling of information about Hasan before the Hasan allegedly went on a killing rampage. Webster also served as CIA director.

In the FBI's case, they examined e-mail exchanges between the Army psychiatrist and a radical imam overseas.
