    What do people think about the US Army seeking the death penality for a US soldier? My cursory research shows that the last time a US service member was executed was in the 1950s.

    I think he should be given a Distinguished Service Cross, promoted to 1st Lieutenant, and given a Honorable Discharge.

    [If they can't even bring the raghead slimebag Hasan to trial, how are they gonna do it with this guy? Oh yeah! He isn't Muslim is he?]
