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.

I imagine the maggots at CAIR, SPLC and the ACLU are all about to blow a gasket. More American “xenophobia”.
Hang the bastard islamofacist POS...he is closely related to the usurper in chief...hang them together.
Hasan is more useful alive. They needed to silence McVeigh and cover up the details of what really happened. (Kind of like Benghazi. And I suspect with some of the same players.) There was much more to the OKC bombing than was covered in the MSM.
I scanned through many of the comments above, and noticed “wait till obama pardons him” numerous times, but it may have been in half jest. I on the other hand actually think Obama may very well pardon this murdering scumbag. It fits perfectly with his accumulated modus operandi. A final “up yours” from the biggest muslim ahole on the planet, and illegal prez to boot.
He is now busted to Private E-1, and all pay and allowances stop effective today. Military prisoners do not get paid.
>> Thirteen people were killed
Ah, that would be 14.
“Hang em high.”
Nah, sentence him to life in a nursing home and make Barack tend to his disabled ass. Force both of them to listen to a hellfire and brimstone Pentecostal Holiness preacher continously.
He was a TERRORIST ISLAMIC BASTARD!!
1961, so you're guess of 50 years was pretty close on the money...
So how soon will the DOJ challenge the verdict of this case like the Zimmerman/Trayvon trial ?
If he isn’t put to death then Obama will release him when he pardons the other Muslim bastards..I say take him to the center of Fort Hood and hang him slowly until he stops kicking then take his sorry ass and put his head on a stake at the front gate make sure he has pork sausages hanging from his mouth ..I hate this bastard and to think he has been waiting for a trial for years..
I am normally a very nice person but when a sorry bastard like this kills our young men and women in cold blood I would gladly shoot him in the head without hesitating..
Islam considers hanging to be a dishonorable way to die....therefore Get the gallows ready.
and yet this will be seen as workplace violence by the regime and those injured and the families of those killed will be treated as pariah.
IF he leaves.
“...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....”
That fact that this piece of garbage is still breathing four years after the fact is what is depriving the families of justice.
Boil him in lard in the courtyard of The Pentagon!
