The Fort Hood shooter is where he belongs, on death row, while his victims remain in limbo. In a fit of political correctness, the Obama administration decided to classify the 2009 massacre on the Texas military base as "workplace violence" instead of what it was: the assault of an Islamic militant upon our soldiers here at home. The real-life consequence of the designation is that the victims aren't being properly compensated for their loss.
The Obama administration made its case for a possible military strike against Syria, and Nidal Hasan was sentenced to death for the Fort Hood Massacre. On the international stage, the British House of Commons rejected a proposal from British Prime Minister David Cameron that would have given America's ally the ability to join it in a military campaign against Syria. Here's a recap, or wrap, of the week that was from The Washington Times.
A military court Wednesday sentenced Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan to death by injection for killing 13 soldiers and wounding more than 30 in a shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009 that he said was to protect Islamist insurgents and Taliban militiamen from U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
The story of 25-year-old Army Pvt. Bradley Manning, now convicted of espionage, demoted and sentenced to 35 years at Fort Leavenworth prison, has taken a bizarre turn.
A military judge trying the Fort Hood shootings case has adjourned the trial for the day after the soldier accused in the deadly 2009 rampage refused to put up a fight on Wednesday, resting his case without calling a single witness or testifying in his own defense.
Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan admits pulling out a pistol, shouting "Allahu akbar" (God is great) and opening fire on unarmed people, killing 13 of them. All, he says, in an effort to stop them from going to Afghanistan and killing his fellow Muslims.
The accused Fort Hood shooter, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, began his court-martial Tuesday admitting he's guilty. "The evidence will clearly show that I am the shooter," said Maj. Hasan, who faces 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted murder for those he wounded.
Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan fired the last of 146 bullets in his assault on Fort Hood, then walked outside where he met two civilians who asked about the commotion and the laser-sighted pistol in his hand.
Diana West's splendid new book, "American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation's Character," is an expose of a practice that she persuasively argues has cost us dearly in the past and endangers our future.
Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan's trial opened Tuesday, and the former Muslim military psychiatrist who admitted killing 13 at Fort Hood in 2009 as a defense of Islam will be acting as his own attorney.
Hundreds of unarmed soldiers, some about to deploy to Afghanistan, were waiting inside a building for vaccines and routine checkups when a fellow soldier walked inside with two handguns and enough ammunition to commit one of the worst mass shootings in American history.
Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the Army psychiatrist accused of killing 13 in a Fort Hood shooting rampage in 2009, could get yet another trial delay. The judge will rule Tuesday on his request for more time to prepare his case.
A military judge on Tuesday refused a three-month trial delay for the Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage.
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.
Organizers behind the bodacious "Road to Majority" conference are determined to wrangle conservatives onto the same page as the 2014 midterm elections loom. The event, virtually ignored so far by the mainstream press, begins Thursday at a hotel just three blocks from the White House.
"These are initial charges and additional charges may be in the future," he said during a brief news conference. "This is the first step in the court-martial process."
The Obama administration refused to classify the shooting as a terrorist attack, even though Hasan shouted the Islamist cry of "Allah akbar," (God is great) as he shot his victims.
