Just a devil's advocate perspective???

In the Fort Hood shooting, on November 5, 2009, Hasan reportedly...

According to Jeff Sadoski, spokesperson of U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, 'Hasan was upset about his deployment'.[87]

On June 3, 2013, a military judge allowed Hasan to represent himself at his upcoming murder trial...

Speedy Trial ???

On August 23, 2013, the military jury consisting of nine colonels, three lieutenant colonels, and one major [145] convicted Hasan of all charges, making him eligible for the death penalty.[146] Those deliberations began on August 26, 2013.[147] By August 27, the thirteen-member jury panel heard testimony from 24 victims and family members of those wounded and killed during the 2009 Fort Hood shootings.[148] Throughout the proceedings, Hasan declined to speak in his own defense or question any of the witnesses. He also did not provide any material explaining his decision not to mount a defense throughout the trial and sentencing phases. At the end, Hasan, acting as his own attorney, told the jury panel that the defense had rested its case. Judge Tara Osborn accepted Hasan's decision. In his final statement, lead prosecutor Colonel Mike Mulligan said

[Hasan] can never be a martyr because he has nothing to give... Do not be misled; do not be confused; do not be fooled. He is not giving his life. We are taking his life. This is not his gift to God, it's his debt to society. He will not now and will not ever be a martyr.[149]

The jury panel then reconvened to decide on sentencing.[150][151] On August 28, 2013, the jury panel recommended Hasan be sentenced to death.[152] The panel also recommended Hasan forfeit his military pay and be dismissed from the Army, a separation for officers carrying the same consequences as a dishonorable discharge.



Something strange about the events that led up to his 'snapping'??? I never did find out what officer above him (Lt. Col. or above??), cut orders to Afghanistan for him, after he tried to blow the whistle on the blatant bias of proselytizing psychiatrists who gave not fair nor equal treatment to soldiers who had crises of conscience...

The timing of his orders, given the state of affairs in Afghanistan, 2008?, makes me wonder why a military intelligence report, redacted, was shredded after his tragic meltdown...

A MAJOR MAJOR in the CATCH -22 OF Army Psychiatry, after 15 years of faithful and honorable service to this country. His country...A hostile fire zone where all kinds of strange and weird things happen to anyone sensitive, or sympathetic to the perspective of the put upon and oppressed...

In his deftly wrapped analysis of conscience of one of the soldiers who shot Pat Tillman, I wonder, what if anything was done about following up his call, and question of military atrocities on foreign as well as domestic personnel...

The chaos and misinformation of that terrible shooting in Fort Hood, revealed a very poor organization of misdirection, miscommunication and transference of any guilt by higher brass, for lack of due diligence, and fair and equitable treatment under even military law....
