    <p>FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - The military's highest court ousted the judge in the Fort Hood shooting case Monday and threw out his order to have the suspect's beard forcibly shaved before his court-martial.</p> <p>The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces ruled that Col. Gregory Gross didn't appear impartial while presiding over the case of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who faces the death penalty if convicted in the 2009 shootings on the Texas Army post that killed 13 people and wounded more than two dozen others.</p>

The Dutch native's lawyer, Maximo Altez, has not publicly addressed the latest allegations. Panorama reported that he has not denied his client was involved.
  • Alleged Fort Hood shooter ruled 'sane': source

    KILLEEN, Texas — The US Army psychiatrist charged with killing 13 people in a shooting spree on a Texas army base has been ruled sane and thus fit for trial, a source familiar with the case said. The ruling by a group of medical experts, called a sanity board, opens the door for a court martial that could end in the execution of Major Nidal Hasan, who was paralyzed from the neck down during the November 5, 2009 massacre. Neither prosecutors nor retired Army Colonel John Galligan, a veteran military lawyer representing Hasan, 40, would confirm the board's decision.

    Military judge also won’t disqualify himself in case of Fort Lewis war protesterLt. Ehren Watada suffered two losses in court Friday during the Army’s second attempt at court-martialing him for refusing to deploy to Iraq last year. Military judge Lt. Col. John Head first refused to disqualify himself from the case, despite arguments from Watada’s new attorneys that there is at least the appearance that Head cannot be impartial in this matter. Head then ruled that trying Watada again wouldn’t violate his constitutional right not to be prosecuted twice for the same crime, also known as double jeopardy. Head is...

    OUSTED Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein said today he would go to the gallows as a "sacrifice" and called on his former Iraqi subjects to unite against their enemies. Saddam, in a letter written to the Iraqi people from his cell and confirmed as genuine by his defence lawyer, said: "I sacrifice myself. If God wills it, he will place me among the true men and martyrs." Yesterday, a panel of appeals court judges confirmed Saddam's conviction for crimes against humanity and ordered that he be hanged within 30 days. In what might therefore be his final message, Saddam blamed his...

    OUSTED Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and two of his senior allies were today sentenced to death by hanging after an Iraqi court found them guilty of crimes against humanity. If an automatic review of the death sentence fails, the former strongman will hang within 30 days. Judge Rauf Rasheed Abdel Rahman ordered bailiffs at the Iraqi High Tribunal to force Saddam to stand before the court as, visibly trembling, the former strongman attempted to shout down the verdict. “Make him stand,” barked Judge Rahman, as Saddam begged the guards: “Don't bend my arms. Don't bend my arms.” A court official...

    IRAQ'S Government said today Saddam Hussein got what he deserved when an Iraqi court sentenced him to hang, but a senior Sunni Arab Member of Parliament dismissed today's verdict as political. “The verdict is as expected,” said Ali al-Dabbagh, spokesman for the Shiite-led Coalition Government, after the ousted president was sentenced to death for crimes against humanity. “This is the least that Saddam deserved because his crimes were great. No further punishment was possible.” However, a senior Sunni Arab parliamentarian, who asked not be quoted by name for fear of sectarian reprisals, said: “This is a political verdict from a...

    DEPOSED Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein's sentence will be automatically reviewed by an appeals panel if he is convicted tomorrow of war crimes and sentenced to death or life imprisonment. If these judges find grounds to question the judgment, Saddam will face another trial. If not, the sentence imposed this weekend by the Iraqi High Tribunal will stand and be carried out within 30 days. Saddam and his seven co-defendants were put on trial for the killing of 148 Shi'ite civilians from the town of Dujail, where the then president escaped an assassination attempt in 1982. Under the statutes establishing the...
  • Iraqi PM hopes for Saddam death sentence soon

    Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki said he hoped legal proceedings against former president Saddam Hussein would be short and that he would be found guilty and sentenced to death soon. The Shiite Prime Minister's comments come just one month after his government sacked the chief judge trying Saddam on genocide charges, saying he had sacrificed his neutrality by stating the ousted leader was not a dictator. That prompted criticism by some international legal rights groups, who have said government pressure and sectarian violence in Iraq make a fair trial of Saddam impossible. Mr Maliki met Moqtada al-Sadr on Wednesday in...

    SADDAM Hussein's forces buried a Kurdish family alive in a mass grave in northern Iraq in the 1980s, a witness told the genocide trial of the ousted Iraqi leader today. The Kurdish woman, sitting to the left of the judges and speaking from behind a curtain to protect her identity, was the latest witness to give testimony about Saddam's 1988 Anfal (Spoils of War) campaign against the Kurds in northern Iraq. "I know the fate of my family. They were buried alive," she told the court through a translator. "I would like to ask Saddam a question: 'What was the...

    There are some lessons to be learned in the Jeff Gannon-Jim Guckert scandal – for the press and for the politicians. Guckert is a right-wing political activist with a seriously compromised personal life. Somewhere along the line, he decided the best way he could make a name for himself or help spread his "conservative" political ideology was to pose as a journalist. He got a boost from a conservative political organization that founded a faux news organization called GOP News. GOP News arranged with Guckert to become its White House correspondent under a pseudonym, Jeff Gannon. Once the organizers of...

    KERRY SPEAKS: WHAT WENT WRONG Sun Jan 02 2005 10:35:31 ET New York-In an exclusive interview about his presidential campaign and his life now, Sen. John Kerry tells Newsweek, "I'm not going to lick my wounds or hide under a rock or disappear. I'm going to learn. I've had disappointments and I've learned to cope. I've lost friends, a marriage: I've lost things in life." Kerry has not given any formal interviews since his defeat. But on Nov. 11, he summoned a Newsweek reporter to his house on Boston's fashionable Louisberg Square. He wanted to complain about Newsweek's election issue,...

    When American intelligence broke the Soviet wartime code, we learned that the Soviets had infiltrated the American government. The American intelligence community’s penchant for secrecy and its refusal to admit that it had been infiltrated was so great that it failed to disclose this to President Harry S. Truman. This is how Daniel Patrick Moynihan described it: "The Soviets knew we knew they knew we knew. The only one who didn’t know was the President of the United States. Our politics was injured for 30 years by this."—Quoted in the New York Times, March 30, 2002 here is a good...

    The United States is consulting with Italy over its extradition request for Palestinian guerrilla leader Abu Abbas, seized by US forces in Baghdad, a White House spokesman said. "We are considering next steps right now, consulting with the Italian Government," US National Security Council spokesman Sean McCormack said. Abbas was convicted in absentia in Italy in 1986 and sentenced to life in prison for planning the 1985 hijacking of the Italian cruise ship Achille Lauro. A disabled, elderly American Jewish passenger, Leon Klinghoffer, was shot and thrown overboard in the attack. Abbas, who was not on board the ship during...
