“Hasan doesn’t deny that he carried out the November 2009 rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, that left 13 people dead and more than 30 others wounded. There are dozens of witnesses who saw it happen. Military law prohibits him from entering a guilty plea because authorities are seeking the death penalty. But if he is convicted and sentenced to death in a trial that starts Tuesday, there are likely years, if not decades, of appeals ahead.
He may never make it to the death chamber at all.”
Apparently, nearly all death sentences given to active service members are overturned on appeal. Further, no active service member has been executed since the 1960’s.
…I wanted to make mention of the Fort Hood massacre, back when it occurred…For one thing, I wanted to acknowledge the peculiarity of the government and media refusing to acknowledge this as a terrorist act.
Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, I think, clearly engaged in an islamic inspired act of terrorism on a U.S. military base.
No matter how many people may be uneasy about it…I stand in unity, with those who believe it is high time this case be acknowledged for what it is…an act of terrorism…and that Nidal Malik Hasan is an islamic terrorist.
It is a disgrace, that the families of Nidal Malik Hasans victims have apparently been denied benefits and compensation from resources earmarked for just such cases, because the government won’t call a spade a spade.
Thirteen people were butchered by Nidal Malik Hasan, and numerous others badly injured…All while Hasan was verbally shouting out an extremely cliche islamic slogan…And the U.S. government still refuses to say, what everybody else knew from the very beginning of this insane mess?
This is a very good example, of why I have such little respect left for the U.S. government…In the face of a bloody slaughter on our own soil, not just of U.S. citizens but of U.S. soldiers also [people the government immediately uses for it’s own bidding]…we are not even given the base human respect of forward honesty, from the U.S. government.
…That really just says it all, and puts things into perspective…doesn’t it?
…We are not respected as human beings [and certainly not as equals], by the U.S. government…Instead, we are insulted and treated as though we were ignorant fools.
