FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) -- Because he's a Muslim and accused of having ties to a terrorist, the man charged in the deadly Fort Hood shooting rampage needs a jury consultant before he goes on trial for his life, his defense attorneys told a military judge Thursday.

Maj. Nidal Hasan's attorneys also told the judge that he needs another expert to analyze the extensive pretrial publicity about the case and determine how that might influence potential jurors.

I will be his jury consultant and work pro bono. And he is worried about pre trial publicity? What did he think would happen when he made the decision to go on a military base and kill U.S. Soldiers? Too bad. No one cares.

I am with you Fred. Then he would not need to worry about pre trial publicity. All I care about when it comes to the jury is if they believe in the death penalty.

Yeah, because screaming "Allahu Akbar" and shooting everybody until you're out of ammunition, reloading, shooting everybody again until you're out of ammunition, reloading, and finally getting shot while shooting everybody again...

...needs frickin' NUANCE to understand.

They will not find one redeeming feature or extenuating circumstance for this pos. I dont care if he was molested by a pack of wild water buffalo when he was a child.

Wait a minute. Isn’t this a General Court Marshal under the UCMJ? There’s no jury, as I recall. There is a panel of senior officers who determine guilt or innocence.

Of course, I may be wrong. 20 years in the Navy and never attended a General Court Marshal.

I thought the same thing when I first read the article. But the request for a jury consultant told me I had to be wrong. Also, I want to apologize to all self respecting water buffalo everywhere.

Just like there is no crying in baseball;

before he goes on trial for his life, his defense attorneys told a military judge Thursday.

The idiot attorney has not yet figured out the rules are different from what he was taught. Plus, there are no cameras or reporters allowed in as well. This is a military matter and the military has a tried and true method of handing a$$hats like this dufus.

But then again, with the rash of convictions of our soldiers in Courts Martial kangaroo things like Haditha makes me nervous.

You were at some Captain's Masts, though, certainly?

Does a Military Tribunal have a jury?

He’s a US Soldier, who committed a series of Murder on a US Army base, while serving as an officer.

Why would this be tried in any other court, than a Military trial?

I like the way people talk about stereotypes as if they are always bad and always wrong.

They talk about profiling the same way. There is nothing wrong with profiling. Quantico teaches profiling. For good reason.

I’m wondering if the military enlisted men and low ranking officers accused of killing some Iraqis were given the same kind of thoughtful trial as this traitor/muslim is being given? Of course the military enlisted and low ranking officers are Christians. That may make a difference.

And this response for a jihadi slave of Allah is another dam good reason to just slay them wherever you find them. No doubt Nidal hasan-and his attorney are just peeved that he wasn’t dispatched to those 72 virgins /or white grapes -or whatever pig dung it is they tell their bloody slaves of Allah.What a terrible WASTE of taxpayer funding They shoulda just pushed him off base in his wheelchair and said to him Repent or die in your sins murderer.

He should retain OJ’s jury consultant who apparently has an uncanny ability to screen out people with a brain.

As a young sailor, I was a witness at a Captain’s Mast. One of my fellow sailors told his LPO to F*** off and die.

So the Captain asks me, “Exactly what did Petty Officer Schmuck (not his real name) say?” Something in my head told me, “You can’t say f*** to the Captain.” So I was hemming and hawing around the answer and the Captain leaned over the lectern and said, “Petty Officer B***, did he say f*** off and die or not?”

“Yes sir!!! that’s exactly what he said, sir!!!”

Later when he approached me I told the Captain that I was raised to have respect for my elders and just couldn’t utter that word to his face.

“I was raised to have respect for my elders and just couldn’t utter that word to his face.”

And your Commanding Officer was maybe forty and did not feel the least bit elderly. LOL

As a young enlisted man I felt the same way, that the CO was old. Now from early middle age (63) all navy Commanding Officers are youngsters and I’m not sure the Navy should let someone so young have so much responsibility. LOL

Lead defense attorny, Lt. Col. Poppe also said he would decide later whether to challenge Gross as the judge in the case. Gross answered some of Poppe’s follow-up questions in court Thursday after filling out a questionnaire prepared by the defense team.

Holy She-it!
