FORT HOOD, Texas — Nidal Hasan, the Army psychiatrist convicted in the November 2009 shooting rampage that left 13 dead and 31 wounded, was sentenced to death Wednesday by a military jury.Seriously, this guy has a major boner to get to the virgins he thinks Allah has promised him:
Prosecutors had sought the death penalty, saying Hasan's murderous rampage at the sprawling military base here left tragic and devastating loss for victims and loved ones.
Hasan, 42, was convicted last week on 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 charges of attempted premeditated murder. He appeared expressionless upon hearing the verdict, which came less than two hours of deliberations.
Hasan, a Virginia-born Muslim who acted as his own attorney, admitted he was responsible for the shootings at his trial. He had previously said he was a "soldier of Allah,'' deserved martyrdom and that his attack was designed to protect Muslim insurgents abroad.I can't think of a better candidate for capital punishment. That the Obama regime called this "workplace violence" for so long is absurd. This guy was admittedly motivated by his religion. Can we please call it what it is? Islamist mother fucking terrorism. They call it that. Why can't we?
At least they finally gave the shooting victims the recognition they deserve, and the health care benefits that go with it. The victims of the shooting can now receive the Purple Heart, acknowledging that they were wounded (or killed) in the line of duty.
Yes, it took me a week to get to this. And even then, it took a snow day for me to find time to post it. All the same, I am glad that the Fort Hood victims finally got some justice, and I wish Nidal Hasan a speedy trip to hell.
