Families and victims of a mass shooting in 2009 at the Fort Hood military base in Texas filed a wrongful death suit on Monday against the U.S. government, the accused gunman and the estate of an alleged al Qaeda leader.
The 148 plaintiffs are seeking damages and a ruling that the rampage was a terrorist attack. The finding would clear the way for them to receive benefits.
Major Nidal Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, faces 13 charges of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder for the November 5, 2009, attack on soldiers preparing to deploy to Iraq.
Survivors have expressed frustration about repeated delays over the past three years in bringing Hasan to trial. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces indefinitely postponed Hasan's court-martial last month pending further review.

Good for them. I just spoke to my 86 year old neighbor from NJ. Her husband was retired military. We agreed the two of us could hold this %$#@!!$ down and shave that beard. There is no reason in the world that we have not had a trial yet. Put him in general population.
It would be nice if a new attorney general and justice dept would be operating in January, and start to make the wheels of justice turn.
I think the beard issue was a way for the government to delay the trial past the election. If the intent was to get on with things, why not just add insubordination (refusing to shave) on top of the murder charges?
"FU America. I'll always have al Qaeda and the New York Times."
The Azzwipe looks stoned out of his mind!
What a disgraceful era of American history, to elect a person so unworthy!
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces indefinitely postponed Hasan's court-martial last month pending
Mark for later.
I say just drop all charges and set Hasan free...
I’ll start the pool right now and give him 2 hours and 18 minutes before he assumes room temperature (providing it is Winter) ... if they wait until Summer I’ll buy another ticket and say 48 minutes.
Side Bet ... he loses his Beard in 5 Minutes (5 Painful Minutes)
I agree completely- turn him loose in downtown Dallas, Houston or San Antonio.
You could turn him loose in Alpine TX with the same results (the fertilizer would be welcomed)
