Col. John P. Galligan, Hasan Attorney, Discusses Meeting With His Client (VIDEO)

Retired Col. John P. Galligan, the civilian attorney for suspected Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan, gave an interview to CBS's The Early Show this morning. He told anchor Harry Smith that he has met with his client "for about 30 minutes" and confirmed that Hasan is "coherent."

Col. Galligan, hired by Hasan's family, would not reveal much about his defense strategy, but warned that he does not believe Hasan can get a fair trial because of the intense media scrutiny of the case.
