“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

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.”

Know Thine Enemy - Major Hasan is honest about himself; why arent we? (Mark Steyn)

On December 7, 1941, the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor was attacked. Three years, eight months, and eight days later, the Japanese surrendered. These days, Americas military moves at a more leisurely pace. On November 5, 2009, another U.S. base, Fort Hood, was attacked by one man standing on a table, screaming Allahu akbar! and opening fire. Three years, nine months, and one day later, his court-martial finally got under way.
The intervening third-of-a-decade-and-more has apparently been taken up by such vital legal questions as the fullness of beard Major Hasan is permitted to sport in court. This is not a joke: See Judge Ousted in Fort Hood Shooting Case amid Beard Debacle (CBS News). Army regulations require soldiers to be clean-shaven. The judge, Colonel Gregory Gross, ruled Hasans beard in contempt, fined him $1,000, and said he would be forcibly shaved if he showed up that hirsute next time. At which point Hasan went to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, which ruled that Colonel Grosss pogonophobia raised questions about his impartiality, and removed him. Hes the first judge in the history of American jurisprudence to be kicked off a trial because of a beard debacle. The new judge, Colonel Tara Osborn, agreed that Hasans beard was a violation of regulations, but said she wont hold it against him.
The U.S. Army seems disinclined to hold anything against him, especially the 13 corpses plus an unborn baby. Major Hasan fired his lawyers, presumably because they were trying to get him off on the grounds that hed had a Twinkie beforehand, or his beard dont fit so you must acquit, or some such. As a self-respecting jihadist, Major Hasan quite reasonably resented being portrayed as just another all-American loon gone postal...

“In New Video, Al-Shabab Justifies Woolwich Attack, Urges Muslims In West To ‘Make Their Choice Today,’ And Follow Footsteps Of Nidal Hasan, Mohammad Merah, And Farouq Abdulmuttalab, And ‘Brothers In ... Texas And Boston,’ And To Read Inspire Magazine”
SNIPPET: “On October 17, 2013, the Somali Al-Qaeda-affiliated group Al-Shabab Al-Mujahideen released an hour long video titled “Woolwich Attack: It’s an Eye for an Eye.” The video is about the May 22, 2013, Woolwich (London) attack in which British soldier Lee Rigby was murdered in daylight by two men. In the video, Al-Shabab portrays the attack as a logical response to the U.K.’s crimes against Muslims around the world. Al-Shabab urges Muslims living in the West to follow the footsteps of the Woolwich attack perpetrators, as well as the perpetrators of other attacks in the West, such as Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood shooter; Faisal Shahzad, the Times Square bomber; and Umar Farouk Abdulmuttalab, the “Underwear Bomber.” The video also features several British Muslims from different ethnic backgrounds who traveled to Somalia and trained and fought alongside Al-Shabab.”
TheBlaze Investigation: How Obama and the Army Betrayed the Victims of Fort Hood

SNIPPET: “Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!
Army Maj. Nidal Hasans words hung in the air along with the smell of gunpowder from his semi-automatic pistol.
On Nov. 5, 2009, the Fort Hood Army psychiatrist methodically and deliberately took the lives of 13 people, including a pregnant woman. Thirty-two others were wounded. The shooting is considered the worst mass murder on a military base in U.S. history, and more than four years later, the victims have yet to find closure.”
