    by Gina Cassini | Top Right News Outrageous. Reckless. Senseless. That is what many military families are calling the continuing ban on concealed carry for servicemembers on U.S. military bases. Bases like Ft. Hood, where 3 brave members of our military were gunned down by an apparently mentally-compromised Spc. Ivan Lopez. And the outrage will only grow in light of a new shocking report that Lopez was able to remain free for 15 to 20 minutes -- more than enough time for him to kill 3 and wound 16 -- before finally being confronted by a military policewoman, whereupon he took...

The five had raised legal questions about human rights and prison conditions they expected to face in the United States. In rejecting the appeals, the British court cited an “overwhelming public interest” in seeing the extraditions carried out. Hamza is wanted on U.S. charges that include...

    A numbers of years ago, while Hassan Rouhani - the current President of Iran - was serving as the top negotiator on Iran's nuclear program, Rouhani boasted to a group of Iranian clerics that while he was stalling and conducting protracted negotiations with the west, Iran was able to utilize that period of time to improve its nuclear capabilities. Rouhani also recounted to the clerics an essential component of his negotiating strategy, namely to create a rift in the opposition, a split among those western countries who were opposed to Iran's nuclear program.

    The founder of a Muslim-oriented New York television station has been convicted of beheading his wife in 2009. Muzzammil 'Mo' Hassan, 46, never denied that he killed Aasiyah Hassan, 37 inside the suburban Buffalo station the couple established to promote cultural understanding. A jury on Monday rejected his claim he was the victim of spousal abuse. Hassan acted as his own lawyer during the trial in Buffalo. The Pakistan-born Hassan has been in custody since Feb. 12, 2009, when he walked into the Orchard Park police station and told officers his wife was dead. Her decapitated body was found at...

    A new Senate report on the 2009 Fort Hood shooting blames the FBI and Department of Defense for failing to recognize or act on alleged shooter Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan’s extremist views. The report, released today by Senate Homeland Security Committee chairman Joe Lieberman and ranking Republican Susan Collins, says the FBI and DOD could have prevented the shooting if they had identified Hasan’s radical Islamist views and disciplined or discharged him before the attack occurred. “Our report’s painful conclusion is that the Fort Hood massacre could have and should have been prevented,” Lieberman said at a press conference...

    Legal experts following one of the most riveting murder trials in Buffalo history express uniform disapproval of Hassan's attempt to serve as his own lawyer and showing contempt for his trial by stalking out of court. Hassan, also known as "Mo," is charged with stabbing and beheading his wife, Aasiya, on Feb. 12, 2009, in the headquarters of their Bridges television station in Orchard Park. So far, Sedita said, prosecutors have received notice only that Hassan plans to pursue a "battered spouse" justification defense, essentially stating that as a long-abused husband, he feared for his life and the only way...

    The last hour of Aasiya Zubair Hassan's life started out as ordinary as any other -- haircuts for the kids and a promise to take them to dinner. But it ended in a horrific, blood-soaked death marked by more than 40 separate slash and stab wounds, and ultimately, a beheading. The attack was so vicious that it allegedly took her husband, Muzzammil "Mo" Hassan, only 47 seconds to do it all with a pair of hunting knives that he had bought earlier that day. That was the portrait painted by the prosecution in the first day of trial for Hassan,...

    Muzzammil S. "Mo" Hassan today asked a judge to "fire" Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard because he said he has been beaten and tortured by sheriff's deputies in the Erie County Holding Center and he believes they are planning to kill him. A spokesman for the sheriff's department called the claim "preposterous." Hassan, 45, who is awaiting trial on charges he murdered his wife in Orchard Park last year, told Erie County Judge Thomas P. Franczyk he was attacked and beaten by 16 jail guards -- whom he referred to as "white Nazis" -- Nov. 10 and Nov. 11....

    FORT HOOD — Military investigators said the gunman in the shooting rampage last Nov. 5 hadn't used even half of his ammunition. The testimony this morning in the Article 32 hearing of Maj. Nidal Hasan revealed that the shooter had 177 unspent rounds, compared to the 146 discharged rounds recovered at the scene. Those numbers suggest that the shocking incident, which left 13 dead and dozens more wounded, could have been much, much worse had it not been for the quick actions of two civilian police officers on the post who also testified today. Officer Kimberly Munley, who arrived at...
