A military jury sentenced Maj. Nidal Hasan to death Wednesday for killing 13 people during the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood.
Hasan, who sat motionless as the jury president read the verdict, has said he acted to protect Islamic insurgents abroad from American aggression, never denied being the gunman. In opening statements, he acknowledged to the jury that he pulled the trigger in a crowded waiting room where troops were getting final medical checkups before deploying to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Hasan had one final chance Wednesday to give a closing argument before his case went to the jury, but he declined -- continuing an absent defense that he has used since his trial began three weeks ago.
The Army psychiatrist's behavior has only stoked suspicion that his ultimate goal is martyrdom, in the form of a death sentence that would allow him to fulfill what prosecutors have described as a "jihad duty" under his Islamic faith.
The lead prosecutor, Col. Mike Mulligan, told jurors Wednesday morning that history was full of instances of death in the name of religion. But he said it would be "wrong and unsupportive" to tie Hasan's actions to a wider cause

I hope they strap him to a gurney and choke him to death with a wad of raw bacon.
Can the Mooslum in the White Hut pardon him?
According to UCMJ this goes to automatic appeal.
It will never happen.
He is a Islamic TERRORIST!! He killed and for 44 PEOPLE FOR Allah. All military wounded and killed should receive their Purple Hearts and benefits as soldiers. All those that looked the other way should now be court marshaled
Please tell me it won't be another four freakin' years...
Somebody post that Powers Boothe picture. I’m too lazy.
>>>I hope they strap him to a gurney and choke him to death with a wad of raw bacon.<<<
I was thinking he should be eaten alive by a pack of feral hogs, but I like your idea too.
Just what was the total money spent on this trial. Those who knew more about this terrorist and let it slide or covered up activity need to be exposed and held accountable.
Well he is the CIC so probably so. Or at least life w/o parole or life with parole. Be interesting to see.
He should be shot at dawn tomorrow, but this isn’t our grand parents America.
If only his death could be as the death of Damiens, after his unsuccessful attempt to assassinate Louis XV (now deceased.)
50 years since anyone was put to death from a death penalty case in the military. He should just be put in general population and let the justice system work its magic
Good to see the jury taking such a strong stand against “workplace violence”. /sarcasm
Ok it won’t be another 4 years.
More like 20 or 30.
