    Three years ago yesterday, I was four days away from separating from the Army. I stayed in the barracks at Fort Hood while I waited for my medical records to get officially copied so I could turn them into Veterans Affairs.

    A week earlier, sirens went off around the base to warn everyone about a severe thunderstorm. So on that particular Thursday morning, that's what I thought we were getting warned about.

    It wasn't a thunderstorm. On the other end of Fort Hood, Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan was shooting his way through the Soldier Readiness Processing (SRP) center, killing and injuring fellow soldiers who had either just returned from or were on their way to overseas deployments.

    It was terrorism, no doubt in my mind. That the military ignored the warnings in favor of erring on the side of tolerance, should also be investigated and corrections made.

    Hassan needs to hang, and the Army needs to declare it an act of terrorism so the victims can get what they've got coming to them.

    This Administration is once again screwing those who serve the nation just so jihadis don't get their widdle feewings hurt.

    Apparently he needs a shave before he can stand trial....total bullshit the military needs to go forward with this trial. or discharge the prick and charge him ......:eusa_eh:


    "The beard that has stalled the court-martial of accused Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan will be discussed at a hearing next week, military officials said. Army regulations prevent soldiers from wearing facial hair while in uniform. Hasan, who is still considered a soldier, is a practicing Muslim and maintains he has the right to wear the beard under U.S. laws protecting religious freedoms."

    Now the military has been sued by the victims for dragging their feet on this trial....This is outrageous that the military is kissing this guy's ass....:mad:

    "While Major Hasan is dyeing his beard with berries from his breakfast, no one knows how the children of his victims are faring. But there is one assurance, while the children of his victims may not be sure of their breakfasts, Major Hasan is still on Army payroll and receiving his salaries.

    So, it was bound to happen, and on Monday, 148 plaintiffs sued the U.S. government seeking damages and a ruling that Major Hasan’s attack in Fort Hood military base was a terrorist attack. A question, over which the U.S. government seems to be failing to make up its mind."

    Now that obama was reelected it's even more unlikely that Hasan will come to any kind of meaningful trial.

    If he hadn't won re-election, i figured Hasan would've gotten one of those cool presidential pardons.

    Bull. You forget that Obama sent the drone that bombed Hasan's rabbi Al-Awlaki to little slivers of flesh.

    The Army prosecutors must cross every T and dot every I. They have to get it all exactly right in order to not get overturned on appeal. That's a setback to trial on US soil.

    Better to drop Hasan in Pakistan and take him out with a drone, too, but it is too late for that.

    They will convict and execute...but it will take years to get it done.
