Hasan Guilty On All Charges In Fort Hood Terror Attack
(Ford Hood, TX) A jury has found Maj. Nidal Hasan guilty on killing 13 people and trying to kill 32 more during an attack at Fort Hood.
The Army psychiatrist defended himself and repeatedly admitted to the shootings in the name of Allah.
Prosecutors said the devout Muslim had undergone a “progressive radicalization,” giving presentations in defense of suicide bombings and about soldiers conflicted between military service and their religion when such conflicts result in crime.
“My complicity was on behalf of a government that openly acknowledges that it would hate for the law of Almighty Allah to be the supreme law of the land,” the 42-year-old Army psychiatrist said in a statement sent to Fox News.
Hasan does face the death penalty.
Military prosecutors called 89 witnesses and submitted more than 700 pieces of evidence before resting their case, hoping to show that the American-born Muslim had undergone what they described as a progressive radicalization.
They have argued to the jury that Hasan, who was scheduled to deploy to Afghanistan, did not want to fight against other Muslims and believed he had a jihad duty to kill as many soldiers as possible.
