The court-martial of Nidal Hasan begins on Tuesday, with the U.S. Army major facing charges he killed 13 people in a 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, the worst non-combat attack in history at a U.S. military base.
Hasan, 42, an American-born Muslim, could be sentenced to death if convicted in the trial at the military post for the attack nearly four years ago that also left 32 people wounded.
Prosecutors are expected to lay out their case against Hasan in opening statements on Tuesday. Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, is accused of opening fire at the base near Killeen, Texas, where soldiers were preparing to deploy to Iraq and Afghanistan.
The military judge for the court-martial, Colonel Tara Osborn, ruled on Friday that prosecutors may present evidence that Hasan was on the Internet in the days - and even hours - before the attack, searching terms such as "Taliban" and "jihad" - which some radical Islamists define as a holy war.

I will not be surprised if Odungo pardons him.
funny how the PRESS ran with the Zimmerman guilt banner and shoved it in our faces - but nothing on a guy that is KNOWN to have shot and killed unarmed Army personnel...funny how they want to hang some, but not others...they are the most a$$ backwards part of our society I have ever seen
Can’t a renegade guard just shoot this Mofo and get this over with?
“Hasan, 42, an American-born Muslim, could be sentenced to death”.........
Replace the word “could” to read “SHOULD”.
Hmmmmmmm... rooters joined al qaeda huh?
The only good item in this is that the hero cop shot the basterd in the spine and he is paralyzed for life from the waist down. I don’t even like the fact that he has a tax-payer provided wheel chair. He should be made to crawl, like the snake he is.
Its a crime the demon is still breathing. I see he got the special privelege of keeping his jihadists beard too. How long did Tim McVeigh live after his terror act again?
I am completely at a loss to understand how it took so long to bring somebody who is so indisputably guilty to trial. Can anyone enlighten me?
Not accused. He is the murdering, terrorist, muslim scumbag. No question of that. EVERYONE knows that. The only reason for a trial is to decide if our Government has the balls to do something about it.
This subhuman savage will not get the death penalty. Everyone knows that the chief stands behind him and will commute any penalty that he doesn’t like.
No, shooting Hasan might make noise & alert security.
Better to silently suffocate him with his own pillow. That will at least give him time to contemplate his imminent damnation.
They won’t execute him because he prays to the moon...
No, it must be a rogue Marine or something like that. Obama might step in and say, “If I had an Uncle, he might look like Hassan”...
The two helicopters taking the jihadist to Fort Hood just flew over... May the trial begin...
FWIW we are about two miles from the Bell County jail and near the flight path to Fort Hood...
posted on two threads...
(Right to a speedy trial?)
I’m disgusted and ashamed by every soldier that comes in contact with this enemy and lets him breath another day.
If there were any justice in our land then this man would be fed to swine and Muslim terrorists worldwide would be put on notice.
Better idea: Transfer trial to Ft. Leavenworth for “security reasons”. Place this Hassan POS in general population (clerical errors do happen, preferably on wing where a number of individuals are persecuted for “vigorous application of ROE in asscrapistan”. Over/under on solution to problem = 3 weeks
A real mystery.
His trial should have been within 30 days, lasted 10 minutes and the execution lasted another 10 minutes.
This is not a case of we think he might be the guy.
