FORT HOOD -- No answers Thursday as the Senate panel hearing is delayed.

The Senate was supposed to meet with the FBI to get them to publicly release information about what the government knew about Army Psychiatrist, Maj. Nidal Hasan, before the shooting at Fort Hood.

Now, the hearing was delayed again.

The FBI was supposed to talk about the reveal of secret details on what intelligence agencies knew about Hasan's contact with Muslim radicals overseas.

Hasan's attorney, John Galligan, says he needs the information deemed classified by the FBI to defend Hasan fairly.

"It's just one more example of how there's been a coordinated effort at the highest levels of our government, and that means the White House, The Department of Defense and Department of Justice, to withhold significant, relevant evidence in this case from the public," Galligan told Fox 44.

The mental health panel has given their report on Hasan's state of mind  for the residing army officer to review, but the findings haven't been released.

Galligan says he thinks none of this will stop the case from moving forward.
