Skip to comments.Verdict: Maj. Nidal Hasan sentenced to death for Fort Hood shooting rampage

FORT HOOD U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Hasan will be executed for the 2009 shooting rampage on post that left 13 people dead and more than 30 wounded.
The jury panel of 13 U.S. Army officers delivered the verdict on post moments before 2 p.m. Wednesday. They deliberated for less than three hours.
Last Friday, the same panel unanimously found Hasan guilty of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder for the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood.
This sentencing verdict ends the court martial after 17 days. In it, Hasan, who defended himself, never revealed a motive, did not present a defense and refused to cross-examine any of his victims.
Hasan will immediately lose his rank of major and he will stop getting paid in two weeks.
The Army will soon transfer him to the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. to begin serving his sentence.
But an execution is not imminent. Hasan automatically gets an appeal and it has been more than 50 years since the military executed anyone.
More to come.
My magic date is the twelfth of NEVER.
Now a true test for obama. a death sentence of someone in the military requires presidential approval...
Should be by firing squad.
“Is there a waiting list to signup to shoot this b@$turd?”
Also, waiting list for those willing to supply bacon-coated bullets?
God bless this panel of officers for sentencing this scum to what he deserves.
Agree, but I’ll cut the reporter a little slack since he was proably rushing to get something submitted.
Oh, but this is NOT military related, or else the victims (and their families) would have earned their purple hearts.
So, nope, no military here.
By the way, why did they need a off-base civilian police officer to be the first one to attack him successfully?
There is a guy on the military death row that was convicted in 1988. Hassan is at least a decade or two away from execution so Obama won't have anything to do with it.
“Should be by firing squad.”
Yep, with the firing squad/squads coming from survivors and family members who lost men and women to this piece of Islamic Offal.
When will Obama speak on this I wonder. You would think this would draw an immediate comment from the CiC of the victims.
Nice. I wonder if it will take 20 years to execute him?
But will he have to shave his beard?
He's a real nut case with a martyr complex if ever there was one.
But he's a crafty one, also....so he should be on permanent suicide watch while he's in Club Fed.
Wait a minute....I take that back....let him join that loving Allah he was so willing to kill for. He pollutes the Earth's air just by breathing.
so when do we stop paying him $250,000 a year ???
Fort Hood Shooter Receives Death Sentence

Nadal Hasan, the former Army psychiatrist turned Islamic extremist, who killed 13 and wounded dozens more during a 2009 shooting spree at a medical facility at Fort Hood, Texas, has been sentenced to die, according to multiple news outlets.
From the outset, it seemed Hasan wanted the death penalty. He represented himself and declined to present any evidence in his own defense.
He expressed a desire to become a martyr for Islamic extremism.
Hasan will become the sixth person on death row at the military’s maximum security facility at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. The military has not executed anyone in more than 50 years.
Military executions require the president of the United States to sign the death warrant.
Can we cane him until dead like his fellow Muslims or do we have to use Western civility and use lethal injection?
Imagine the type of pardons we’ll get from a lame duck Obama.
With - or without - a parachute?
Either option..... Works for me.
