After nearly four years of delays as Maj Nidal Hasan mocked the Army and the military’s judicial system, the Ft. Hood shooter’s trial began today. Hasan gave a brief opening statement in which he confessed to trying to kill as many American soldiers as he could.

“Evidence will show I was on the wrong side of America’s war and I later switched sides,” Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who is representing himself, declared during a two-minute opening statement in a heavily guarded courtroom on the base.

“We in the mujahideen are imperfect beings trying to establish a perfect religion,” Hasan added. “I apologize for any mistakes I have made in this endeavor”

It was a jarring opening argument from a Muslim fanatic who has admitted killing 13 of his countrymen and wounding 32 others, and claims he did it to protect Taliban fighters in Afghanistan.

A son of Palestinian immigrants who grew up in Virginia, Hasan also does not deny shouting “Allahu akbar!” — Arabic for “God is great!” – before committing the deadliest mass shooting ever on a U.S. military base.

The Obama administration classifies Hasan’s rampage as “workplace violence,” a politically useful designation that allows the administration to claim that there have been no terrorist attacks on American soil on its watch. The “workplace violence” designation also deprives survivors of their due military benefits and medals.

A firing squad is the way soldiers are executed. Hasan is nothing but a common psychopath, and a firing squad is too dignified for him. He should be hung like the criminal he is.

"...allows the administration to claim that there have been no terrorist attacks on American soil on its watch."

I'm sick of hearing this lie.

The attempted bombing of an airliner in 2009, as it was about to land in Detroit was a terrorist attack on US soil, So was the attack on the consulate (which is US soil) in Ben Ghazi. Hasan's attack at Ft. Hood was certainly a terrorist attack on US soil, and so was the Boston Bombing. These terrorists attacks on US soil ALL occurred on Obama's "watch", if you can call playing golf and vacationing, a "watch".

Sounds like a confession to me, why are we having a trial? Just accept his guilty plea and sentence him to life in front of the firing squad.

It didn't take this long to convict and sentence Charlie Manson.

Why is our Army providing this murderous clown with a forum for his bloodthirsty god at our expense? He didn't need to be tried in the first place. He admits his guilt. Sentence him and be done with it. How did we get stuck with such a sorry military?

The military is forced to accept the lawful authority of the civilian government duly elected by the people of the United States, as per the Constitution. So, to answer your question directly, look no further than the civilian government which issues the military its orders. It's OUR fault, Dick - your's and mine for electing such sorry ass representatives.

A firing squad is too honorable and end for this piece of human refuse. I believe hanging is still technically on the books; I'll volunteer to throw the lever and pay my own travel expenses. Hell, Uncle Sam, I'll bring the damn rope! The whole exercise will not cost the taxpayers a penny. I find it despicable and inexcusable that the victims of this terrible tragedy are not allowed the benefits the deserve; there can be no clearer example of the dems loathing for our military servicemembers.

Remember BENGHAZI!

Men-women, black-white-hispanic-other, AMERICAN SOLDIERS ALL, are being denied treatment and financial compensation simply for democratic political strategy....I hope ALL Americans pay close attention to see for themselves how the dems allow anyone to suffer as long as their political agenda is advanced.

I kinda like that phrase "life in front of a firing squad". My personal preference would be to roll his hospital bed out into the Texas sun and just let the buzzards have him (alive or dead doesn't matter!
