I recently saw the movie again on an airplane. I didn't see the scene where one of the soldiers had the name 'Hassan' on his uniform. So maybe they took it out, or I was just imagining seeing it. I will rent the DVD when it comes out.

Unbelievable.....I guess in some cases you really have to dispose (whether by imprisonment or death) of the victim, even as tragic as it is with the ones he murdered....but is there more than meets the eye to this story? You bet and BFN already covered some key questions/analysis. Either way, Tragic for both sides....as it always is. So strange....the guy is abnormally calm in such a context. It is almost as if he isn't there.

Jury sentences Nidal Hasan to death for rampage

46 min ago Michael Graczyk and Nomaan Merchant of Associated Press


FORT HOOD, Texas — A military court sentenced Maj. Nidal Hasan to death on Wednesday for the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, giving the Army psychiatrist what he believed would be a path to martyrdom in the attack on unarmed fellow soldiers.

The American-born Muslim, who has said he acted to protect Islamic insurgents abroad from American aggression, never denied being the gunman. In opening statements, he acknowledged to the jury that he pulled the trigger in a crowded waiting room where troops were getting final medical checkups before deploying to Iraq and Afghanistan.

The same jurors who convicted Hasan last week had just two options: either agree unanimously that Hasan should die or watch the 42-year-old get an automatic sentence of life in prison with no chance of parole.

Hasan had no visible reaction when the verdict was read, staring first at the jury forewoman and then the judge. Officials said he will be taken back to a county jail and then transported on the first available military flight to the military prison at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas. The timing on the flight wasn't immediately clear.

Hasan could become the first American soldier executed in more than half a century. But because the military justice system requires a lengthy appeals process, years or even decades could pass before he is put to death.

The lead prosecutor assured jurors that Hasan would "never be a martyr" despite his attempt to tie the attack to religion.

"He is a criminal. He is a cold-blooded murderer," Col. Mike Mulligan said Wednesday in his final plea for a rare military death sentence. "This is not his gift to God. This is his debt to society. This is the cost of his murderous rampage."

For nearly four years, the federal government has sought to execute Hasan, believing that any sentence short of a lethal injection would deny justice to the families of the dead and the survivors who had believed they were safe behind the gates of the Texas base.

And for just as long, Hasan has seemed content to go to the death chamber for his beliefs. He fired his own attorneys to represent himself, barely put up a defense during a three-week trial and made almost no effort to have his life spared.

"This is not his gift to God. This is his debt to society. This is the cost of his murderous rampage."

— Col. Mike Mulligan


Mulligan reminded the jury that Hasan was a trained doctor yet opened fire on defenseless comrades. He "only dealt death," the prosecutor said, so the only appropriate sentence is death.

He was never allowed to argue in front of the jury that the shooting was necessary to protect Islamic and Taliban leaders from American troops. During the trial, Hasan leaked documents to journalists that revealed him telling military mental health workers in 2010 that he could "still be a martyr" if executed.

When Hasan began shooting, the troops were standing in long lines to receive immunizations and doctors' clearance. Thirteen people were killed and more than were 30 wounded. All but one of the dead were soldiers, including a pregnant private who curled on the floor and pleaded for her baby's life.

Kham Xiong, 23, of St. Paul, Minn. A military jury has sentenced Hasan to death for the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood that killed 13 people and wounded more than 30 others.

The attack ended only when Hasan was shot in the back by an officer responding to the shooting. Hasan is now paralyzed from the waist down and uses a wheelchair.

The military called nearly 90 witnesses at the trial and more during the sentencing phase. But Hasan rested his case without calling a single person to testify in his defense and made no closing argument. Even with his life at stake during the sentencing hearing, he made no attempt to question witnesses and gave no final statement to jurors.

Death sentences are rare in the military, which has just five other prisoners on death row. The cases trigger a long appeals process. And the president must give final authorization before any service member is executed. No American soldier has been executed since 1961.

Hasan spent weeks planning the Nov. 5, 2009, attack, including buying the handgun and videotaping a sales clerk showing him how to change the magazine.

He later plunked down $10 at a gun range outside Austin and asked for pointers on how to reload with speed and precision. An instructor said he told Hasan to practice while watching TV or sitting on his couch with the lights off.

When the time came, Hasan stuffed paper towels in the pockets of his cargo pants to muffle the rattling of extra ammo and avoid arousing suspicion. Soldiers testified that Hasan's rapid reloading made it all but impossible to stop him. Investigators recovered 146 shell casings in the medical building and dozens more outside, where Hasan shot at the backs of soldiers fleeing toward the parking lot.

In court, Hasan never played the role of an angry extremist. He didn't get agitated or raise his voice. He addressed the judge as "ma'am" and occasionally whispered "thank you" when prosecutors, in accordance with the rules of evidence, handed Hasan red pill bottles that rattled with bullet fragments removed from those who were shot.

Ft. Hood shooting was reportedly
'soldier on soldier' incident


April 02, 2014 FoxNews.com

A shooting at Ft. Hood that reportedly left at least one dead and 14 injured Wednesday was a "soldier on soldier" incident without any preliminary terrorism link, a senior Department of Homeland Security source told FoxNews.com.

The source, who stressed the information was preliminary, added that there was "currently no [counter terrorism] nexus" and said it appears the shooter killed himself.

Fox News confirmed at least one person died in the shooting and 14 were injured, but there was no immediate information on the condition of the injured.

But there were conflicting reports on how many shooters may have been involved, and what happened in the incident.

A senior law enforcement official told Fox News that it is believed one shooter has been “neutralized,” and authorities believe there may be another shooter in the vicinity.

“There has been a shooting at Fort Hood and injuries are reported,” the base said in a press release. “Emergency crews are on the scene. No further details are known at this time.”

A worker at Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center, which is located at Ft. Hood, told Fox News they were treating two patients who were wounded in the shooting. The worker says doctors have been told to expect more, although it’s unclear how many more they might be expecting.

“It’s chaos,” a source outside the hospital told FoxNews.com. “I see lots of ambulances coming in. There are helicopters everywhere.”

The sheriff's office dispatched deputies and troopers from the Texas Department of Public Safety to the nearby Texas Army base, Bell County Sheriff's Office Lt. Donnie Adams said.........


Fox News’ Martin Finn, Jennifer Griffin, Shayla Bezdrob, Jana Winter and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

to latest briefings to CNN staff via onair.

The Fort Hood commander Lt. Gen. Mark Milley, III Corps said
Thursday there is "strong indication" Lopez had a confrontation with an
individual or two before the rampage. The Army says it does not have a
motive though people who knew Lopez in his Puerto Rican hometown say
he was distraught over the death of his mother and his belief that the
Army had tried to prevent him from attending her funeral
last year.

The post dated March 1 alluded to the Army specialist’s roiling anger over
his belief he had been robbed.

"I have just lost my inner peace, full of hatred, I think this time the devil
will take me," Spc. Ivan Lopez posted on his Facebook page. http://rlu.ru/Q78

Those are the official motives.

And this is the official means:
Quote:
Lopez bought his gun last month from the same store where Maj. Hasan
purchased his weapon in 2009, a law enforcement source told Fox News.

http://rlu.ru/Q7b


And then toss Ambien in the mix:
Quote:
Lopez was prescribed the popular sleeping drug Ambien — sometimes
known by the generic name Zolpidem
— according to U.S. Army Secretary
John McHugh, who said that the Fort Hood shooting suspect was
undergoing treatment for some mental health issues, including sleep
disturbance as well as depression and anxiety.....

In at least two cases, Zolpidem has been linked to homicides, according
to a 2012 National Institutes of Health report. In both of those cases,
individuals with no history of “aggressive behavior” killed their spouses
after having ingested at least 10 milligrams of the widely-used prescription
sleeping aid. Both claimed amnesia after the killings.
Both killers also had
at least some history of prior psychiatric disorders, as did Lopez. http://rlu.ru/Q77

Ambien was also on the list of medications reportedly
used by the alleged NUI shooter: Stephen Kazmierchek
