Another Obama Sideshow… Fort Hood Terrorist Nidal Hasan Will Go to Court Today
Another Obama sideshow–
Islamist Nidal Hasan will defend himself in court today over a “workplace violence” incident in 2009. Nidal Hasan murdered 13 Americans and wounded 32 others while screaming “Allahu Akbar.”
Everyone in the country saw this as a terrorist attack… Everyone but Barack Obama.
Hasan has been paid $278,000 since his arrest.
Hasan will defend himself in court starting today in what is expected to be an insane sideshow.
The Washington Post reported:
Nearly four years after Maj. Nidal M. Hasan allegedly opened fire at the Fort Hood military base here, killing 13 people and wounding 32 others, the much-delayed court-martial of the Army psychiatrist is scheduled to begin Tuesday.
Hasan, a U.S.-born Muslim, is accused of carrying out one of the worst mass killings in U.S. history by firing more than 100 rounds during a seven-minute shooting spree at the Army base in central Texas on Nov. 5, 2009.
He has admitted to carrying out the attack but is prohibited by military law from entering a guilty plea because military prosecutors are pursuing the death sentence.
The 42-year-old, who is paralyzed from the waist down after being shot by Army civilian police, is representing himself and could cross-examine his alleged victims.
The trial, which was initially scheduled to begin more than 18 months ago, has been repeatedly delayed by legal issues. The judge first appointed to preside over the high-profile case was removed by the military’s highest court early last year after it ruled that he hadn’t appeared impartial.
Hasan also twice dismissed his legal team. He fought to represent himself and to keep his beard, which he says is an expression of his faith, in defiance of military regulations.
Fort Hood Shooter Nidal Hasan sent a letter to FOX News last week saying the US is at war with his religion.
Nidal Hasan sat on Obama’s national security panel in 2008.
