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....
My understanding is there is some kind of civil suit to try to get the administration to change the workplace violence label they put on this.
I hope this means his pay stops and he is taken off the list for promotions
he admitted he was guilty
Yet this took longer than World War 2!!
Hang em high.
Hanging, firing squad or electrocution, none of this oh so gentle sleepy time. He needs to feel some pain in return for the pain he caused. Last meal should be pork sausage followed by pork greased rope hanging, or pork greased bullet firing squad or pork greased electrode electrocution, and it should be tomorrow. There is no doubt about his guilt or actions so screw the wasted time and money in appeals.
Yet they executed McVeigh in a couple of years....go figure.
if 13 military jurists can’t agree this scumbag deserves the death penalty....
Hasan knew a guilty verdict was coming regardless, so he opted for a declaration of martyrdom. He will not be killed but will be incarcerated in a “monastic” cell while receiving the adoration and praise of a billion Muslims.
Sorry I am so ambivalent about this.
Which should not even be a question. But, with these clowns....
Then, just before he goes to sleep, tell him that his food had uncooked pig in it.
Next morning, wake him up and tell him it was a joke(about the food). Later in the day, take him to the chair, and start the whole process over again. Repeat until he is so confused, he no longer remembers why he was 'ok' with dieing (martyr). Then the next day, put him in the chair, have the phone ring.
Wait for him to say "pardoned again?" and reply "no, I'm getting great rates on car insurance", and then flip the switch.
He was found unanimously in a trial where he repeatedly admitted terrorism/jihad.
Gonna be hard for Holder to get out of this in the public eye. But he will try.
The SOB will out live me and continue to be paid or taken care of longer.
Fry him like bacon.
FFS, this POS should have had his head blown-off the second the got their hands on him that day at Ft. Hood.
Get him hanged before Obama can do the pardon paperwork.
Executed in 15 years. Anyone hear ABC radio news last few days, mis-pronouncing his name as “Hossin” (emphasis on the first syllable), completely took away the “mid east” sound of it.
Hang the bastard
I think I would prefer he get life in prison without possibility of parole so he could wake up every day and know that only death would end it.
He should die but he wants to die so, should we give him what he wants?
Yes. Part of the sentence will be a reduction in rank to E-1 (if they do that to officers) and forfeiture of all pay.
This clown can't run for re-election, he should just do the right thing and let these families get the benefits they are entitled to.
WHO helped him from above, other than Obama?
Well, I suppose they could always put him in the
same cell as chelsea manning.....for life.
Holder and/or POTUS will find some technicality to vacate the verdict, and take the trial away from the Military, and retry in civilian court.
“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.”
I disagree. There is no reason for us to share in his—or any other unrepentant murderer’s—delusions of paradise (when they will most certainly go into eternal punishment). Execution in a case like this is fitting, period.
“Life becomes cheaper when the cost for taking it does.”—Ernest Van den Haag
This guy seems to be a true believer jihadi, so his non-defense makes sense if he really wants the death penalty. If he gets it, I would not be surprised if he does a McVeigh and drops any appeal.
