(CNN) -- A military appeals court halted the murder case against Maj. Nidal Hasan on Wednesday over the Army psychiatrist's refusal to shave his beard before his scheduled trial in the 2009 killings at Fort Hood, Texas.
Hasan's court-martial had been scheduled to start Monday at Fort Hood, where he is accused of killing 13 people and wounding another 32.

This is now the PC version of the US Army, can’t offend the Islams you know, including the Prez.
As a long time reader of Free Republic I would cordially ask if you could share the new site I started http://cramerchronicles.com/ with your conservative friends & family...
Let’s get this waste out of office..
This is absurd. The court-martial board is being played by Hasan and his attorney.
If he doesn’t want to shave, banish him from the courtroom and try him in absentia.
Then, deny him his “muzzie” practices and feed him nothing but bacon and pork products at every meal.
I think word came down from the Comm. in Chief’s people to find an excuse to postpone the trial until after Nov. 6th.
Maybe he has a shaving profile or feels he is out to sea. Those who have served will know what I mean.
They are putting off this trial because this thirty five year old unmarried man who claims he is not married because “he could not find a wife devout enough” is most probably a homosexual. The army investigators probably found some interesting, politically inconvenient things when they searched his computer and apartment. Obama will never permit an open trial before the election.
His refusal to shave is a tacit waiving of his right to be present at the trial.
Military law permitting, he should be tried in absentia...
He was. That’s apparently why the Appeals Court postponed the trial. I don’t understand what the grounds were but there you go.
Did he commit these killings when cleanshaven?
Then he should appear in court that way to allow
witnesses to verify his identity.
This man is subject to UCMJ and as such must follow Army standards, including shaving.
Better yet, just cut his entire f*****g face off.
Isn’t this the second time around on this?
Throw the POS into a wood chipper along with a side of bacon, a pile of old shoes and a dozen Korans.
If it is because of PC, or the Army is now pussified, or whatever, we as a nation are doomed.
> For some reason they are putting off this trial.
Maybey they’re trying to delay it until after November. Obama probably feels that he’ll lose votes and the Islamic funding for his campaign if the case proceeds now.
Consider this Obammy like American citizen is likely still collecting a US paycheck of well over 100,000 annually, and one can really get riled. Probably still funding jihadis and Obammy every month. I wonder how the survivors and relatives can tolerate this injustice?
Why even permit any of our precious values to be wasted on this debris? This is war.
Execute him then shave his ass.
At the rate this is going, most of us will be dead and gone before his trial starts. Of course, by then the Moslems will have taken over the country and he will be released for time served.
Stop this insanity.
That's how the Turkish military handles disobedience. My dad showed me sequential pictures of an enlisted man who refused to get a haircut. The base barber gave him a permanent wave...with a very large sword. He aimed a little low. The whole head came off with one whack.
