Reuters ^ | Sept. 24, 2012 | Jim Forsyth

(Reuters) - Army Major Nidal Hasan, who is awaiting trial accused of a November 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood in Texas that left 13 people dead, was hospitalized at the post over the weekend.

"He was taken from his cell to Darnall Army Medical Center at Fort Hood," Chris Haug, chief of post media relations said on Monday. Hasan was hospitalized on Saturday.

He said the nature of Hasan's medical issue is protected by patient privacy laws. Hasan is paralyzed from the chest down due to wounds he suffered when he was shot by Fort Hood civilian security police during the shooting. He is housed in a specially built hospital cell in a county jail about 20 miles from the courthouse at Fort Hood. He has appeared in court in a wheelchair.

Another stall tactic - just like the beard fiasco.

he’s had almost 3 years of life, longer than his victims,
and he hasn’t even been sentenced yet?
...it’s almost like the military is looking for ways to delay it. ... like over a beard?!? seriously ?!?

Setting up a reason to extradite him home for humane reasons?

I suggest 50 cc’s of air injected into his bloodstream. STAT!

>>Hasan suffers from a variety of ailments related to the shooting, including an inability to regulate his body temperature.

Perhaps something can be done for this, and he will always have the same temperature:

Room temperature.

Watch for the POS to do this if he loses the election.

Not necessarily.People paralyzed as the result of spinal cord trauma are very prone to many serious problems from "bedsores" to respiratory as well as others.

They’ll say he died and was buried at sea and no one will see the dead body.

With any luck he’ll get a flesh-eating bacteria in his system.

Perhaps he will contract pneumonia, and make the whole question of his guilt or possible exoneration moot.

Or things could be hastened a little by waterboarding. That way, we shall have his testimony as well.

Bedsores,in not treated promptly and correctly,can lead to sepsis...which can cause one to assume room temperature.

IIRC,it's the Navy that buries people at sea.

13 killed. It’s always 13. Never mind the baby killed in mother’s womb. According to media, the baby does not count, since their interpretation of life is different from G-d’s.

Sentenced??? They haven’t even had the trial yet.

Personally, I’m pulling for pneumonia as it can get quads due to reduced lung function. He seems deserving of drowning in his own fluids...just sayin’ here.

The guy should already be dead from a tragic accident, like taking a long wheelchair ride off a short pier.

I heard that the S.O.B. has been collecting his full salary as a major the whole time he has been locked up. How long is it going to take to give him a fair trial and execution?

It's also possible that the unborn baby doesn't "count" under the UCMJ as it's currently constructed.

I keep forgetting he is paralyzed from the chest down. It's always pleasant to be reminded of his condition. I'm hearing he has gangrene of the scrotum. How does he manage with tipping his ass to Mecca? Someone should put up a Youtube video.

I hope it’s a strain of MRSA that nothing will touch. I hope it slowly eats his body bit by bit keeping him in abject agony.

It’s important that he lives to stand trial. A trial is what some are trying to avoid ... or delay.

Who said the Navy wouldn’t do it? They’ll “bury” him at see beside Bin Laden. I don’t think you understood my comment.

If I had been there that day, I'd have grabbed the pistol he used and emptied a full magazine into his head. They would have had to use que tips to find most of his head.

Paralysis is hard on the human body. In his case, I hope it’s a lot harder.

If a soldier attacks a pregnant woman and she loses the baby but she herself survives, is it still a war crime?
