Fort Hood gunman Maj. Nidal Hasan sentenced to death

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 have no idea how long the appeal process will drag on.

The last military execution was 1961.

Can the Mooslum in the White Hut pardon him?

The pardon power of the President is plenary, so the answer is yes. It's worse than that. Under the UCMJ, the President must personally confirm the sentence. Not to worry by the time his conviction winds through it mandatory judicial appeals, President Obama will be on his 12th term.

All death sentences are automatically appealed first to the Court of Criminal Appeals for the military service concerned, then to the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces. The sentence must be personally confirmed by the President of the United States.

His execution needs to be done quietly and without any acknowledgement.

To take a quote from the movie Elizabeth:

Norfolk: So cut off my head, and make me a martyr. The people will always remember it.

Walsingham: No... they will forget.
