LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Seeking answers about Maj. Nidal Hasan
Question of the Day
Why hasn’t Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, a radical Islamic terrorist, been tried for his crimes? In the wake of the Boston Marathon terrorist attack by radical Islamists again here in the United States, it is important that the case returns to the surface.
Maj. Hasan is charged with killing 13 innocent Americans and injuring 32 others in 2009 in an act of terrorism at the Fort Hood Army base in Texas. That was more than three years ago. This was a pure act of Islamic terrorism, as Maj. Hasan reportedly shouted “Allahu akbar” while the shooting rampage was going on.
Maj. Hasan still has not been court-martialed or even tried by a military court for this terrorist attack. One excuse after another comes forth, including that Maj. Hasan refuses to shave his beard for Islamic religious reasons.
The Obama administration refuses to call this an act of terrorism. As matter of fact, the words “terror” and “terrorism” rarely appear in the president’s vocabulary. The victims and their families at Fort Hood have demanded that this attack be labeled as terrorism.
As a veteran of the Korean and Vietnam wars, I resent the delay by the Obama administration in bringing this terrorist to justice.
