    The trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan was finally scheduled to begin this month but has been postponed again until June. The prosecution is asking for the death penalty for 13 charges of premeditated murder and 32 charges of attempted murder. You have to wonder what the three year delay means. Will he cut a deal?

    That was a misprint, it was 72 Virginians anyways, not Virgins.

    Ahhh, I thought it was a tad optimistic to think he'd find 72 virgins.

    I don't care how long it takes... as long as they don't back down from the DP.

    If there's anyone who deserves the death penalty, its this clown, what he did was monstrous.

    I completely agree. Let him have his day in court, then let's see some justice for our heroic dead.

    Don't hold your breath.....


    "Hasan K. Akbar, 38, is the most recent addition to the military's death row. Accused of throwing a grenade into a tent of sleeping soldiers from his own brigade, the former Army sergeant was convicted of murdering two people and attempted murder of 16 other soldiers by a court martial in 2005.

    Prosecutors said Akbar, a Muslim convert, carried out the attack on the 101st Airborne Division's Kuwaiti camp to achieve "maximum carnage" on the eve of the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003.

    Prosecutors said Akbar told them he carried out the attacks to prevent the soldiers from killing Muslims in Iraq.

    He was the first American soldier accused of killing fellow soldiers since the Vietnam War.

    His case is currently under review as part of the military's automatic appeals process."
    Who Is on The Military's Death Row? - ABC News

    In a notorious recent case, Army Sgt. Hasan Akbar was sentenced to death in a court-martial for rolling a grenade into a tent filled with U.S. soldiers in Kuwait in April 2003. Four years after he was sentenced to death, his case is still stalled at the first appellate level of the courts.

    We live in a time when a certain political philosophy won't criticize, or point out bad behavior much less carry out the required penalty......
