Fort Hood shooting trial: Day one

Opening statements began in the Fort Hood shooting court martial today.  Army Major Nidal Hasan admits to killing 13 people and wounding 32 others.  Because this is a death penalty case, Hasan is not allowed to plead guilty.  Instead he will have the opportunity to possibly cross examine the people he's accused of shooting.  Today is day one of the court martial.  CNN's Ed Lavandera has the latest.
