Horror of massacre at Fort Hood replays in court
Dallas Morning News ^ | 10/14/2010 | Lee Hancock

The pop-pop-pop of gunfire, groans of a dying soldier and wailing from terrified survivors riveted a military courtroom Wednesday as Army prosecutors played a 911 tape of last November's massacre at a soldier-readiness center.

Eight witnesses gave graphic descriptions of the chaos unleashed when Army Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire in the worst attack ever on an American military installation. Several recalled hearing a shout of "Allahu akbar," or "God is great," just before the melee began.

"I looked at [Hasan] and was wondering, 'Why would he say Allahu akbar?' " testified the first prosecution witness, Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford. Within seconds, the sergeant added, Hasan pulled a pistol from his combat uniform and began shooting.

The dramatic testimony and the six-minute 911 recording were presented during the second day of Hasan's probable cause proceeding, known as an Article 32 hearing.

Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, faces 13 charges of premeditated murder and 32 charges of premeditated attempted murder. The Nov. 5 attack ended when two civilian police officers engaged Hasan in a gunbattle. He was shot four times and left paralyzed from the chest down.

When the shooting ended, what had been a busy medical processing center looked like "the worst horror movie you could possibly ever see," testified mental health specialist James Armstrong, an Army reservist from Maine. "There's blood everywhere. Blood handprints on walls ... pools of blood on the floor."

Meanwhile our pension-minded, PC military brass continues to obsess over the utter nonsense of diversity.

“He was shot four times and left paralyzed from the chest down”.

...that’s a good start. SOB. And while innocent Americans relive this nightmare, the kenyan plays golf and plays pres-ee-dent.

"Major Nidal Malik Hasan, who allegedly killed 11 people [count now 13, or 14 if you include the unborn child of the 21-year-old female soldier -etl] before being shot and wounded by police at Fort Hood, had said Muslims should "rise up" and attack Americans in retaliation for the US war in Iraq, a former army colleague said."

"He said Muslims should stand up and fight the aggressor and that we should not be in the war in the first place." He said that Major Hasan said he was "happy" when a US soldier was killed in an attack on a military recruitment centre in Arkansas in June. An American convert to Islam was accused of the shootings.

Col Lee alleged that other officers had told him that Major Hasan had said "maybe people should strap bombs on themselves and go to Times Square" in New York."

At the very least, this should show the military bigwigs that at least the military police on military bases should be armed. I was horrified to learn that NOBODY on that base could take this guy done until after he had done a lot of damage.

Behar and Whoopi must have walked out of the court room!

Those witnesses should not imply that Nidal Hasan could be a Muslim!

Go up the chain of command as far as you can go. There’s where you will find the other person responsible for the murders, besides the obvious one. The person who gave the order and set up the rules and procedures that made the immediate supervisors sacrifice innocent people on the altar of political correctness.

Nah - that’s what he wanted. A higher spinal cord injury might have been even better - enough so that he wouldn’t be able to wipe his own butt. Or perhaps some sacral sparing so he could still have sensation in his genitals but require daily catheterization by an attendant.

Alledgedly should not be in play at this point and should never be in play. When you kill/wound the shooter WHILE HE IS SHOOTING PEOPLE, you have already proved your case. It’s not like this occurred in a back alley.

I believe this trial is why BIG MEDIA is breathlessly reporting the Miner situation 24/7 for the last 2 days. Added bonus of ignoring the Owebama economy being in shambles.

This travesty is enough to make you want to go to war! Oh, we are at war. At war in this time, under this president, this military brass, shackled by Palestine, Hillary, Gates and Biden and debt to China. Russia says, China says, NYT says, MSNBC says,.....drone on. How DID we get here?

Get a rope, hang him high, watch him swing, and let him rot.

That’s my theory on this terrorist POS.

"Allegedly" should not be in play at this point and should never be in play. When you kill/wound the shooter WHILE HE IS SHOOTING PEOPLE, you have already proved your case.

That was from an article published immediately after the incident (Nov 6, 2009). I suspect the "Allegedly" referred to the number of people shot by him. Perhaps it hadn't been 100% confirmed at that point that he did all the shooting.

Hasan, an Army psychiatrist . . .

In my experience, having known as friends or acquaintances, several psych majors, most of them were at least borderline nuts.

He should have been executed on the spot by the cops the day this happened. After he was down, the cop should have walked up to him and put several bullets into his head.
