U.S. military court removes
judge in Fort Hood massacre case

Original Article

Posted By:ramona, 12/3/2012 9:21:37 PM

San Antonio, Texas - The top U.S. military appellate court on Monday ruled that the judge presiding over the case of an Army major charged with a 2009 massacre at Fort Hood, Texas is not impartial and ordered him removed. The court also set aside the order by the judge, Colonel Gregory Gross, that accused gunman Major Nidal Hasan be forcibly shaved. The action by the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces further delays the trial of Hasan, 42, who is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder after he allegedly opened fire on soldiers and support personnel in a room

Fools, and the laughingstock of the Arab world. A military that plays by these rules deserves the scorn of the citizens who support it.

Too bad the civilian police weren´t better shots.

Am I the only one who thinks it´s ridiculous that none of our soldiers had weapons and ammo? Could they at least have paint ball guns? Or BB guns? Jeez.

So the Appeals Court is saying that Hassan doesn´t have to follow Army regulations so that must mean he is an unlawful enemy combatant is not subuject to the UCMJ. Throw him Gitmo and let him rot there for awhile then execute him.

From my Monday Morning QB perspective it looks like the court fell into the trap of deciding to deal calmly with every detail and any objection. That can lead to infinite delay.

A smart civilian judge will not tolerate it or hesitate. The trial proceeds even if the defendant must be bound and gagged.

A defense can always appeal but seldom can successfully stall.

This case must seem a farce to most world.

It is an offense to human kind that Hasan breathes. Any questions?

He´s not entitled to the appellation of "Major." He long ago rejected his oath and responsibilities and began acting with our enemies.

#2: There are some 2-million-plus uniformed military. They´re not monolithic in their views.

#4: Hasan was hit some number of times, I don´t remember how many, or where. But certainly some blame must adhere to the use of 9mm ["compatible with what the Eunics use" -- whoopee] instead of the magnificent designed-for-the-military John Moses Browning M1911. I wonder to whether they were stuck using hardball, not JHP.

I will say it again, since no one is putting the pieces of this puzzle together on their own.

Obama is CiC. Obama must sign the death certificate. The trial, and death sentence will NEVER conclude during the Obama presidency.

Why? It is illegal for muslims to kill each other, by decree or physical hand, according to Sharia law.

Mark my words, and come back in 4 more years with your outrage when you finally wake up.

The Muslim in Chief will not sign the death certificate. He CAN´T.

Remember, Hasan was on Obama´s presidential transition team for HHS. Watch this guy... I don´t think he´ll be allowed to walk but minimally placed in a comfy place for the rest of his life. FYI... right after the massacre, Hasan said he did it because Obama was taking too long.

Army Ranger Josh Hargis was unconscious, hooked to a breathing tube at a military hospital in Afghanistan after losing both his legs in battle last week. But when the Purple Heart ceremony began at Hargis’ bedside, it turned out he was not unconscious, as doctors believed. Instead, he struggled with an attending doctor to raise his heavily bandaged hand to salute a commanding officer presenting him with the medal. "I cannot impart on you the level of emotion that poured through the intensive care unit that day," the commander wrote to the Ranger´s wife.

A town in western Sweden has agreed to pay damages to a man who was told he wouldn´t be hired if he refused to shake a woman´s hand for religious reasons. The decision by officials in Trollhättan to pay the man 30,000 kronor ($4,500) means the municipality won´t have to face a review of the case by Sweden´s Equality Ombudsman (Diskriminerings ombudsmannen). The incident stemmed from an office visit by a man who had been offered an internship with the integration division at Trollhättan municipality.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s.

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C.

At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.

One by one, the myths of the Affordable Care Act have been revealed. When the curtain on open enrollment falls on March 31, the last remaining big myth of ObamaCare will be fully exposed: The individual mandate has failed. After a last-ditch effort with President Obama himself encouraging "young invincibles" to sign up before the deadline, the administration is scrambling to boost enrollment. On Tuesday, the White House announced that people who applied for coverage on the federal health-insurance exchange will have until mid-April to finish the paperwork. The mandate was supposed to be the administration´s magical elixir for the assorted shortcomings

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on
