FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) -- Army Maj. Nidal Hasan was convicted Friday in the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, a shocking assault against American troops at home by one of their own who said he opened fire on fellow soldiers to protect Muslim insurgents abroad.
The Army psychiatrist acknowledged carrying out the attack in a crowded waiting room where unarmed troops were making final preparations to deploy to Afghanistan and Iraq. Thirteen people were killed and more than 30 wounded.
Because Hasan never denied his actions, the court-martial was always less about a conviction than it was about ensuring he received the death penalty. From the beginning of the case, the federal government has sought to execute Hasan, believing that any sentence short of a lethal injection would deprive the military and the families of the dead of the justice they have sought for nearly four years.
A jury of 13 high-ranking military officers reached a unanimous guilty verdict in about seven hours. Hasan had no visible reaction as the verdict was read. In the next phase of the trial, they must all agree to give Hasan the death penalty before he can be sent to the military's death row, which has just five other prisoners. If they do not agree, the 42-year-old could spend the rest of his life in prison.

Community service and then a pardon from the kenyan.
If he’s executed, it will be in 2039 or so.
Hang em high.
Just waiting for “The One” to pardon him on all counts.
Now let’s see what the sentence is.
Unless his goal is to be found guilty.
Perhaps Pelosi will take him home and let him live with her.
Good so we can quit paying him now right?
Can we seize his assets and distribute them to the victim’s family?
Should be execution by intravenous bacon grease.
Good thing this was about workplace safety rather than Islamic Jihad, mutiny, insurrection, treason, mass murder and crimes against humanity.
Martyrize him, the sooner the better.
Do not allow him the questionable "grace" of dying in jihad, the only guaranteed path to that whorehouse-in-the-sky his kind calls paradise.
Still workplace violence?? Meaning the victims’ families can’t get benefits?
That won't hurt you - I do it every weekend.
For Hassan, a short drop and a sudden stop.
When do his paychecks stop ? ..... after he is executed in thirty or forty years ?
Now - “IF” he does not get the death penalty I believe the military justice system should be “compassionate and merciful” to Hassan as Mo would want.
Place him in the same cell with “Chelsey” Bradley Manning and perhaps they could have 30 wonderful years of companionship together. Hassan being paralyzed, will need someone to keep his A$$ clean and I believe “Chelsey” would be well qualified to handle the duties.
Shux - maybe he would change his name to Aisha instead of Chelsey IF Bradley was so honored..
Now they can declare it a terrorist attack...... Tick.....tick ..........tick
cover him in pork grease and fill the syringe with pork fat....
