Breaking: Fort Hood Terrorist Found Guilty on 13 Counts of Murder
Army Major and Fort Hood terrorist Nodal Hasan has been convicted of 13 counts of murder and 32 counts of attempted murder in 2009 shooting rampage.
It should be noted that 14 lives were taken that day, including that of an unborn child.
Via Fox News:
Hood shooter Nidal Hassan was found guilty on all counts of premeditated murder and attempted murder Friday, making him eligible for the death penalty.
A military jury deliberated for roughly one day before announcing the verdict.
Hasan sat emotionless, stroking his beard as the verdict was delivered.
He was charged with 13 counts of pre-meditated murder and 32 counts of attempted pre-meditated murder in the Nov. 2009 shooting attack at the sprawling Texas military base.
Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, had acted as his own attorney at the 13-day trial, but questioned only three of nearly 90 witnesses and presented only a single piece of evidence in his defense: an evaluation from his boss that called him a good soldier. He also chose not to make a closing statement.
Sentencing is set for Monday.
Remember that the Pentagon had actually releases a report on the shooting rampage which failed to mention the word “Islam” or “Muslim.”
Now perhaps, since the trial clearly demonstrated this was an act of terrorism, the administration could go ahead and do the right thing and stop referring to this as “workplace violence.”
Obama’s insistence on referring to the attack as “workplace violence” means that the victims are denied medical benefits they would otherwise receive.
The President has turned his back and forgotten the victims of a heinous terrorist attack. Where is the outrage? Or is sympathy solely reserved for the terrorists themselves under this administration?
