Judge rules Fort Hood shooting
suspect still faces possible
death penalty in 2009 attack

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/30/2013 1:27:14 PM

FORT HOOD, Texas – A judge has decided a Fort Hood shooting suspect still can face the death penalty if convicted in the worst mass shooting on a U.S. military installation. The judge, Col. Tara Osborn, on Wednesday denied Maj. Nidal Hasan´s request to remove the death penalty as a punishment option. Osborn was expected to rule later on Hasan´s request to plead guilty to 13 counts of premeditated murder in the 2009 attack on the Texas Army post. But Army rules prohibit a judge from accepting a guilty plea in a death penalty case.

Should have been shot with 24 hours. Period!

And all in the chain of command who knew of his religious propensity should have been court-martialed, dishonorably discharge and forfeited all pension.

If he is allowed to plead guilty, Obama and the US Army leadership escape scrutiny on why this Muslim´s officer´s anti-American hatred was ignored and why he was promoted after his jihadist rants. Plea deal also eliminates evidence about Hasan´s frequent contacts with another American Muslim terrorist, Alawaki. FBI knew of Hasan´s email exchanges with Alawaki, whom we killed in a drone strike in Yemen. Yet these contacts were apparently ignored by Army, which was about to send Hasan to Afghanistan as a psychiatrist for our soldiers. Can bet that Army accepts a plea deal of life imprisonment.

It is obvious that the administration wants to drag this out as long as possible. Nor does it want to admit the shooting was an act of terrorism. Sympathy for a "Soldier of Allah"?

The higher court ruled with a non-comment regarding his bear, thus upholding the trial court´s decision and order to shave the beard. The area most under contention (that is argued by the Army) is, that with witnesses coming to the stand to identify the culprit (Hasan), he was clean shaven when he shot the victims, and the witnesses could have trouble identifying him with his beard- aside from Army regulations that do not allow the beard. Hasan is still rcieving his full pay as a Major in the US Army. The court then issued the order for Hasan to be forcefully shaved. But, then immediately stayed the order, pending resolution of the rest of Hasan´s appeals. The trial is also now under a new Judge. Hasan has been allowed to attend court proceedings with his beard.

Also, he has not been allowed to plead guilty. The Army regulations do not allow a guilty plea in cases where the defendant may receive the death penalty- the trial must proceed as though the defendant had plead not guilty.

Should we be getting just a wee bit impatient with this case? Hassan committed his evil act in November 2009. It is now the end of January 2013 and we still have no trial for this guy. I wonder how much longer "justice" will be delayed. Why can´t the military just try the SOB? We´re in the 4th year of horsing around with no end yet in sight. You´ve got to love our legal system. We surely don´t want to trample on his rights. Let´s make sure he has his prayer rugs, his Koran, his halal meals and God forbid, don´t touch his beard.

Now he wants to bargain?

It seems like he could effectively plead guilty by presenting no defense. Or even by voluntaryly testifying about what he did.

Would that violate any legal principles?

Instead, for some reason, this case has taken years. And one complaint after another has been examined like some new Commandment found carved on Mt. Sinai.

Obama, being a Muslim, CANNOT sign Nidal´s death warrant. A muslim cannot sentence someone to death for killing in jihad. The worst penalty they get for killing another muslim they deem not muslim enough is a lashing.

The trial will be postponed until Obama is out of office. Mark my words on this.

Above is the reason why.

Has anyone else wondered why this guy did not go for Obama himself? If you´re on a jihad, why not try to kill the POTUS? That was a goal on 9/11/01 for the plane that our guys took down in the field in PA. Hasan was on Obama´s transition team and I think I have seen him in pictures with Obama. So, if he could get that close, why didn´t he make a try for Obama? Perhaps Al Awalki (whatever his name was) had issued orders to protect Obama, but to try for non-Muslim soldiers.

Sucking carbon dioxide out of the air might be used as a last-ditch attempt to stop global warming, UN scientists say. The technology is proposed as a ‘Plan B’ if Governments fail to cut carbon dioxide emissions by up to 70 per cent before 2050. Reducing greenhouse gases to manageable levels will cost up to four per cent of global GDP by 2030, according to a draft version of a report to be published in Berlin on Sunday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Fifty years later we are locked in a time of deep political division in America, frustrated by a Congress that can’t deal with a national immigration crisis, protect the right to vote or even pass a jobs bill to help the struggling economy. But this Thursday, four presidents – Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter – will stand together at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library in Austin, Texas. The historical significance of this moment cannot be overstated. The presidents will come together as a powerful symbol of America’s ability, as demonstrated 50 years ago, to

In late March, the Chicago Board of Education announced an ambitious plan to implement its “turnaround” model for three low-performing elementary schools in poor, predominantly black neighborhoods. The turnaround process involves the sacking of every teacher and staffer at each of the schools, according to an email from the Chicago Teachers Union obtained by The Daily Caller. Naturally, the union bosses aren’t happy that the nation’s third-largest school district is employing such sweeping measures to improve some of its worst schools.

The group, RunBenRun.org, a super PAC, has already raised $4 million toward a Carson bid for the Republican nomination and has collected 200,000 signatures for a petition to get him to join the race. John Philip Sousa IV, the group’s national chairman, said Tuesday that members are working Carson on an almost daily basis, sending along petition-drive updates and hundreds of “clamorings” for him to run, received through letters, Facebook postings and other forms

A tragic phenomenon has affected President Obama since he became President. The more radical his audience, the more outrageous his lies. At his appearance before Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, Obama called voter fraud claims “bogus” and said his Justice Department has “taken on more than 100 voting rights cases since 2009. ” This is a bald faced lie. One need merely click this link from the Justice Department’s own website to see it is a lie. The truth is that 39 cases have been brought, not 100 – and only 13 relate to protecting minority voting rights – usually foreign

House and Senate Republicans have been mostly silent about the nomination of Sylvia Mathews Burwell to succeed Kathleen Sebelius as Health and Human Services secretary, but they will likely have a lot to say when her confirmation hearings begin in May. With Obamacare at the center of a protracted fight in Congress, Burwell, who would essentially be left in charge of the new law, is unlikely to win the same unanimous support from the Senate that she did when confirmed a year ago as the director of President Obama´s Office of Management and Budget. “This is not going to be another

DURHAM, NC — A drug trafficker who worked for Al Sharpton’s nonprofit in the 1980s said that despite the preacher’s denials, he was eager to get a slice of the lucrative drug deal captured on FBI surveillance video. “It was greed. He just wanted money,” Robert Curington, 72, told The Post during a two-day interview at his North Carolina home, detailing for the first time how Sharpton stepped into the FBI’s trap — and was then forced to become a federal informant. Sharpton has said he showed interest in the drug deal only because he feared the undercover agent was

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle.

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.
