    Exclamation Possible Death Penalty For Fort Hood Gunman Nidal Hasan!!

    A U.S. Army general Wednesday approved a possible death penalty in the future military trial of Major Nidal Hasan, the American Muslim accused of killing 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas.

    Hasan’s government appointed defense lawyer, John Galligan, has urged the military against allowing the death penalty as a possible sentence in a trial. He has insisted that a life prison term should be the most severe penalty under consideration and says a death penalty trial is more time-consuming and expensive. Galligan could not immediately be reached Wednesday.

    Galligan also has repeatedly has complained that he and his client have been denied full details of what U.S. intelligence agencies knew about Hasan’s contacts with overseas terrorists, including Anwar al-Alwaki, now believed to be in Yemen and the target of American drone attacks.

    "The best decision, the right decision, as hard as it might be ... is to make this a non-capital referral," Galligan said to CNN.

    Hasan was partially paralyzed in the final shootout with police at the end of the attack in November 2009 and is in a wheelchair. He is being held in a local jail near Fort Hood, the country's largest military base.

    Witnesses at a preliminary hearing in October pointed to Hasan in the courtroom and said he had repeatedly reloaded his handgun as he walked through a medical screening building and fired more than 140 times. Many of the victims of the shooting, as well as Hasan, were set to ship out shortly to Afghanistan.

    I don't even know why it's being considered. It's a no brainer IMO. Put the piece of garbage to death immediately after he is convicted.

    I don't see how this wouldn't be a capital offense.

    Don't worry, the Obama regime will no doubt jump right into the middle of this, give us another of his "Islam is the religion of peace" speeches, have the guy shipped to Gitmo, which he will close down and then send this clown to the arab country of his choice.

    I just hope they shove a ham sandwich in his mouth, after they strap him to the gurney. Wouldn't want him to get hungry on his trip to see "Allah" and collect his virgins.

    Yeah, and I hope all his virgins are hairy and look like Osama Bin Laden.

    If a capital murder case is all that expensive, I'd be happy to chip in a little!

    They're expensive because we keep them on death row for ten years and give them appeals that last for months, if not years, costing the state a fortune in pay for a judge, jury, attorneys, witnesses....
