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.

That's my thought, too.
And I bet he asks, pleads to be executed. So he can go to a martyr's paradise.....
Executing him would be what he wants - martyrdom. Stick him in Super Max in CO - live in a cell 23.5 hours a day with no social contact other than his “spiritual leader” once a month. But then, if Obama pardon’s him the outrage that follows would be .....
In WWII can you imagine a Nazi sympathizer gunning down people on the base while screaming "Heil Hitler"? He would have been executed by sunset.

Thank you, 444Flyer.
If its "workplace violence/workplace safety", does that mean he doesn't get paradise and the 72 virgins?
If he gets the death penalty, make it fast in coming. Do like the Oklahoma bomber did - get it over quickly and get it behind us. The Arab Street is going to be playing this for all its worth.
He's kind of like a suicide bomber. To fulfill Jihad, doesn't he have to die?
Martinize dry clean him. I think it can be done in an hour.
What the hell is a gunman?
The word is Jihadi murderer!
This is as good as we can expect from the media. They will never tell the public that the ‘religion of peace’ has sworn to eliminate Christians and Jews, and that this mass murder is about that.
Not a gunman.
It’ll probably be overturned on appeal after he claims incompetent defense counsel.
"That won't hurt you - I do it every weekend."
It appears so. There's a guy in Leavenworth who has been on death row since 1988.
Cover him in pork grease and drop him in the hyena enclosure at the zoo.
..this will become Al Jazeera’s Trayvon Martin...
As inviting as this seems, Islamics will go bat-sh*t and pull another Benghazi.
Muslims who are fighting each other might band together to fight the "big satan" and take out "little satan" Israel as a bonus.
“Let the bytch get water boarded and raped in the shower. “
He’s in a wheel chair, numb from the neck down. He wouldn’t even feel the rapes. Dental tools might hurt though?
Better yet, make him be Chelsea Manning’s shrink in prison
Then, just before he goes to sleep, tell him that his food had uncooked pig in it.
Next morning, wake him up and tell him it was a joke(about the food). Later in the day, take him to the chair, and start the whole process over again. Repeat until he is so confused, he no longer remembers why he was 'ok' with dieing (martyr). Then the next day, put him in the chair, have the phone ring.
Wait for him to say "pardoned again?" and reply "no, I'm getting great rates on car insurance", and then flip the switch.
I kinda' like the way you think. He caused, and continues to cause, so much pain.
Can’t wait to see this b@$tard pay for what he did.
The Federal government's objective in both of these incidents has been to conceal as much relevant information as possible from the American people.
Execution should take place only after an extended and complete "conversation" with proper patriotic American investigators, and the information made public.
Then this scum can be executed publicly by Lithium fusion on his precious rock in Mecca.
McVeigh admitted to attacking the regime abnd that scared politicians. Hasan shot soldiers, and liberals like obama don't like soldiers.
