FORT HOOD, Texas — Guilty, on all 45 counts.
Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan was found guilty by unanimous vote Friday of opening fire in a crowded clinic here on Nov. 5, 2009, killing 13 people and injuring 31 others, as well as shooting at the police officer who took him down.
The verdict was unanimous on all charges; Hasan could be sentenced to death for the crimes.
I sincerely hope that the death penalty will be imposed by way of firing squad. A date with Mr. Needle is far too good for this oxygen thieving waste of skin. Thank goodness that the military has its own, far more appropriate, code of justice.
Even more dead-jihadi-licious is how the verdict for this misogynistic, Islamo-fascist slime bag was handed down by a woman!
The judge, Col. Tara Osborn, again reminded those in the courtroom that no outbursts of any kind are allowed, and those inside heeded the warning. Still, many had tears in their eyes or relieved smiles on their faces as they left quietly after the verdict.
Hasan did look up at the president as she read the verdict, then looked back down, glancing up again briefly as Osborn said the sentencing phase will begin Monday at 9 a.m.
Lest we forget, it is vital to remember the craven, cowardly words of the Army’s top officer, General George Casey:
“Our diversity, not only in our Army, but in our country, is a strength. And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse,”
As blogger par excellence, Takuan Seiyo, is fond of noting:
“Diversity” is like Tabasco – add a ¼ spoonful to your grits, and you have a more lively and interesting dish. Add half a cup of the hot sauce, and you need an ambulance.
It is equally important to recall how the entire 86 page Pentagon report on the Fort Hood massacre never once contains the word “Islam”.
Clearly, this traitorous rat bastard has no shame or sense of disloyalty to the troops he ostensibly leads.
