“Report: A Dozen Military ‘Insider Threats’”
by IPT News Jun 26, 2012 at 9:33 am
SNIPPET: “FBI agents have identified a dozen cases of possible “insider threats” among Islamic extremists within American military ranks, National Public Radio reported Monday. That includes active duty troops, reservists and civilians with access to military facilities.
The figure was drawn from more than 100 investigations and was reported to members of a House-Senate committee meeting secretly in December. Officials declined to say whether any additional cases have been identified since then.”
SNIPPET: “During a hearing last Wednesday on extremism within the Muslim community, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King, R-N.Y., said military communities increasingly are targeted for attacks in the United States.
“The number of military insiders suspected of being radicalized to violent Islamist extremism is a still-classified but truly eye-popping amount of ongoing cases,” King said in prepared remarks.”

“Military judge holds contempt hearing, rules on other pending matters in Hasan case”
Fort Hood Public Affairs Office Subscribe To This Unit
SNIPPET: “FORT HOOD, Texas - In an Article 39A hearing July 25 in the case of U.S. vs. Maj. Nidal Hasan, the Military Judge Col. Gregory Gross began the morning with a contempt hearing for Hasan’s failure to comply with Army grooming standards and appear in court clean shaven.
Gross found the accused in contempt and fined him $1,000, the maximum amount the court could impose as a fine under the court-martial contempt statute. After conducting the contempt hearing, the accused refused to voluntarily shave and watched the remainder of the hearing outside the courtroom via a close-circuit television feed. The military judge further informed the accused that if he did not voluntarily shave, Gross would likely compel a shaving sometime in the future so the accused could personally attend forthcoming court-martial hearings.
The remainder of today’s hearing focused on discovery and expert matters.”

“Army appellate court hears argument in Hasan appeal”
Fort Hood Public Affairs Office
October 11, 2012
SNIPPET: “FORT HOOD, Texas — The Army Court of Criminal Appeals heard arguments Oct. 11 over whether Maj. Nidal M. Hasan can wear a beard at his upcoming court martial.
Seven appellate judges from the ACCA, all high-ranking military officers, listened to oral arguments for more than an hour. The primary issue before the court is whether a federal law known as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act allows Hasan to wear a beard while in uniform at his court martial for 13 premeditated murders and 32 attempted premeditated murders.”
SNIPPET: “In addition to the RFRA issue, the appellate court also listened to the parties argue over what powers a military trial judge has over a court martial and if Gross’s orders in this case showed a bias against Hasan.”

“Fort Hood shooting victims sue government”
SNIPPET: “The lawsuit alleging negligence by the government said that the Defense Department is avoiding legal and financial responsibility for the killings by referring to the shootings as “workplace violence” rather than as a terrorist attack.
The group also is suing the estate of Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical U.S.-born Islamic cleric who the victims say inspired the Army psychiatrist, Maj. Nidal Hasan, to carry out the attack. The two men exchanged emails before the shootings.”

“Judge in Hasan case removed
Court: Colonel for Fort Hood trial had ‘appearance of bias.’”
By Sig Christenson
Updated 1:14 a.m., Tuesday, December 4, 2012
SNIPPET: “The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces was expected to rule on a long-disputed order requiring Maj. Nidal Hasan to shave his beard, which he grew in violation of Army regulations.
Instead, it sidestepped the issue after finding that the judge, Col. Gregory Gross, had displayed an appearance of bias in the case. The Army’s judge advocate general will appoint a new judge.”
(Note: 1 person who was killed was pregnant; so factually 14 people deceased and there were others injured.)

USA v. Hassan, Nidal Malik
Fort Hood, TX
[Fort Hood, TX] On November 5, 2009, Major Nidal Malik Hasan opened fire on fellow soldiers at the Fort Hood military base in Texas killing 13 people and wounding 30 others. Hasan, a Muslim psychiatrist in a hospital at the military base, shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is great) before opening fire. The attack took place at the Soldier Readiness Center, where soldiers are prepared for overseas deployment.
Cindy’s Comment: Clearly the answer should be, “No.”

Fort Hood shooting suspect wants death penalty out
Stars & Stripes ^ | : January 24, 2013 | AP Staff
Posted on January 24, 2013 6:21:20 PM PST by Rabin
The new judge in the Fort Hood shooting rampage case faces a controversial decision next week: whether to spare Nidal Hasan a possible death sentence and let him plead guilty in the worst mass shooting on a U.S. military installation.
Hasan wants to plead guilty to 13 counts of premeditated murder, Army rules prohibit a judge from accepting a guilty plea in a death penalty case...

“Hasan: I Shot Comrades to Defend Taliban”
by IPT News Jun 4, 2013 at 4:42 pm
SNIPPET: “Army psychiatrist Nidal Malik Hasan said twice this week that he waged the 2009 Fort Hood shooting massacre to defend “others” from his fellow soldiers. Those others, he said during a hearing Tuesday, were “The leadership of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the Taliban.”
Hasan plans to represent himself during his pending murder trial in military court, using a defense that says he acted in “defense of others.” Despite his own statement, and detailed records showing he communicated with American-born al-Qaida cleric Anwar al-Awlaki before the attack, the government considers the attack a form of “workplace violence” rather than terrorism.
The attack killed 13 people and wounded 30 more. Because of the “workplace violence” designation, victims will not receive Purple Hearts and survivors have not received combat benefits. U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., has sponsored an amendment to an appropriations bill to change that. Hasan, meanwhile, remains in the Army pending his trial. He has received $278,000 in pay since the Fort Hood attack.
In addition to being denied benefits, survivors may now have to face Hasan if they are called to testify at his trial.”
“Former attorney general says he may represent Hasan”
By Jeremy Schwartz
SNIPPET: “FORT HOOD Update, 4:25 p.m.: Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark did offer to represent Maj. Nidal Hasan, and will do so if it is possible, Clark said Tuesday afternoon from New York City, where he lives.”
SNIPPET: “Clark, who was part of an international panel that defended former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein, said Hasan being tried without counsel is unacceptable by any standards of justice. Hasan has dismissed his civilian and military-appointed attorneys.”

SNIPPET: “Hasan is trying to establish sympathy. Hes playing a game, Lunsford continued. [Hasan] is very intelligent and he already knows the end is near. Hes trying to do anything he can to avoid the death sentence.
Hasan faces death or life in prison if convicted at his court martial set to begin on August 6.”
