10 YEARS LATER: Fort Hood shooting

| November 6, 2019

Nidal Hasan

“On Thursday, November 5, 2009, former U.S. Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan opened fire on the base killing 13 and injuring more than 30.”

Tuesday, November 5, 2019, marks the 10 year anniversary of the shocking Fort Hood shooting, where Major Nidal Hasan killed 13 unarmed soldiers and left more than 30 wounded.

On August 23, 2013, Hasan was convicted on 13 counts of murder and 32 counts of attempted murder. Five days later, he was sentenced to death by a 13-member military jury, the same jury that convicted him of the crimes. He is one of four death row inmates in the military justice system.

On Tuesday, October 29, Vice President Mike Pence visited with soldiers, veterans and their families.Topics discussed included the death of ISIS leader Abu Baku al-Baghdadi, America’s commitment to take on terrorist organizations, the 10-year anniversary of the Fort Hood shooting, announcement of new equipment coming to Fort Hood and America’s commitment to its armed forces.

“And as the nation will pause to remember next week, 10 years ago, on November 5, terror struck at the heart of this base when a former Army psychiatrist opened fire inside the Soldier Readiness Center, claiming the lives of 13 extraordinary Americans,” Vice President Pence said. “When I arrived last night, I stopped and paid my respects at the Fort Hood November 5 Memorial. I walked by the columns dedicated — each individual one — to the 13 men and women who fell that day. And I was deeply moved — moved by the tributes to all of those that were lost. Like Staff Sergeant Amy Krueger, who was preparing for a tour of duty in Afghanistan before that fateful day. Or Specialist Jason Dean Hunt, who had just gotten married two months before. Or Private Francheska Velez, who had just returned from a tour of duty in Iraq and was expecting her first child. You know, the Bible tells us to mourn with those who mourn, and grieve with those who grieve. But we do not grieve like the rest who have no hope, for our faith gives us hope and heroes give us hope. And as the 10th anniversary of that terrible day approaches next week, let me say, on behalf of the American people, to the families of our fallen and all you brothers- and sisters-in-arms: The American people are with you, and this nation will never forget or fail to honor the service and sacrifice of our heroes who fell on November 5, 2009. That is my solemn pledge. They and their families will remain in our prayers.”

Fair winds and following seas.

    This case needs closure.
    Put him in a box and close it.
    Hermetically.

    • Toxic Deplorable Racist B Woodman says:

      Just don’t go to his cell for six months. No food, no water, no medical attention. Six months.

  2. Jerry says:

    I for one, would really like a detailed accounting of how any families on base housing that lost a love one to this evilshit were treated afterwords.

  3. Graybeard says:

    To make good use of this guy, use him for testing the expansion rates of competing defensive pistol ammo.

    I’ll volunteer a round or two…

  4. IDC SARC says:

    That fukking beard exception is an insult to everyone that’s ever worn the uniform. This murdering asshole gets a waiver of grooming standards for his big goat humping buddy in the sky…fukk him, if anything the deity was for all intents and purposes an accomplice.

    small point I know, but it is a valid point. Why bend regs for a murderous traitor?

  5. Ex-PH2 says:

    Why do we have to keep feeding and watering this garbage heap?

    • Jus Bill says:

      Because the longer this crapweasel stays alive, the longer he has to ponder his confinement and ultimate meeting with his maker for REAL judgement. He needs to suffer each and every day.

  6. RetiredDevilDoc8404 says:

    Ya know, that piece of crap could have been flushed on its’ way to the infernal regions the day he was shot if the medic who put in his IV had been a bit less careful with his technique and given the goat raper a little air in the line – probably wouldn’t have taken much…think of the money it would have saved. Having been a medic/Corpsman and worked in EMS I don’t advocate taking lives by first responders, but in cases like this DB and Tsarnev (Boston Marathon bombing) some people are guilty and just need to be removed from the gene pool forthwith. Like G. Gordon Liddy reputedly said, “Some people just need killing.”

  7. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    FUCK Nidal Hasan to death up the ass sideways with 10,000 red hot fireplace pokers. He needs either to be strapped to the gurney and put to sleep like the vicious animal that he is, be thrown into a pen of starving hogs after being painfully horsewhipped OR just abandon him out in the middle of some desert wilderness to suffer the painful death he deserves or immolation because that shitass bastard motherfucker needs to get used to burning if yaknowhutImean!

    • Fjardeson says:

      Drop his ass down a Centralia, PA, mine shaft.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        Not a bad idea, he DOES need to get used to burning as well as the sulphurous stench of hellfire and brimstone, well said!!!

        • Fyrfighter says:

          Wait.. doesn’t that poor town / state have enough problems already? Do they really need the stench of that goat fucker roasting?

  8. Whizzbang says:

    I prefer to refer to him as inmate Hasan.

    Prepending the military rank of O4 to this future pig food demeans and diminishes the rank of Major, in my opinion.

    I hope the needle they use is blunt, and encrusted with bacon fat.

  9. Martinjmpr says:

    Normally I’m a supporter of the death penalty, but not here.

    Hasan is permanently crippled and is in terrible pain every day.

    I hope he lives to 100, screaming in agony every second.

    • Graybeard says:

      Since I believe the Biblical doctrine of eternal punishment, I believe that when he dies of whatever causes, he will then spend the rest of eternity in agony more excruciating than anything we can contrive, made more so by the knowledge that it will never, ever end, change, or improve.

      Unless, of course, he accepts Christ as his Lord and Savior.

    From an October 2018 news article:

    “Newly published excerpts of jailhouse letters from U.S. Army officer-turned-terrorist Nidal Hasan show that he is almost completely without remorse for the 13 lives he took during the Fort Hood attack in 2009, the culmination of a twisted jihadist quest that he hoped would somehow save his mother’s soul.”

    “Asked if he believed he was committing a “good deed” by murdering his fellow soldiers that day, former Army Maj. Hasan responded in one letter to a terrorism researcher, “Of course!”

    ” I considered those who were trying to help the U.S. undermine the Taliban’s attempt to establish Sharia (God’s) Law as the supreme law of the land and replace it with something else like a democracy that doesn’t rule by God’s law the enemies of God, and thus worthy of fighting/killing,” Hasan wrote in a letter to the researcher Katharine Poppe in November 2017, portions of which were published by the George Washington University’s Program on Extremism on Thursday.”

    “In doing this “good deed,” Hasan hoped to balance what he saw were his own mother’s sins — namely selling alcohol for years at their secular Muslim family’s store — to save her from literally burning for all eternity.”

  11. Why is this shit bird still alive. He should hang himself like epstein, of course with a little help and the cameras off.

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      Wait! You mean he has actionable evidence of corruption, easily used against the Clintons, and is going to testify? wow.

  12. Jason says:

    I heard he has information on the Clinton’s.

  13. Charles says:

    There is no military death penalty. There is “military death penalty litigation.” The last military execution was April 13, 1961. That’s almost 60 years ago.

    Army Judge Advocates have been born, went to college and law school, were commissioned, served 20~30 year careers and have retired without ever seeing a military death sentence placed into effect.

    Entire JAG careers have been spent moving a pile of paper from one side of one desk to the other side of another desk. There is zero interest in actually pressing for a conclusion.
    And that includes JAG, the civilian courts, and yes, the DOD and the President.

    There are currently four men left on death row:

    https://www.wearethemighty.com/history/true-crime-military-death-row

    Look again at the time line above on Hasan’s case:
    Shooting = November 5, 2009
    Trial = August 23, 2013
    Days elapsed = 1,388

    Compare that to:
    Pearl Harbor = December 7, 1941
    Surrender of Japan = September 2, 1945
    Days elapsed = 1,366

    The U.S. Military was able to fight all of World War II, on two fronts, from the initial attack to the unconditional surrender of two empires, in less time than it took the Army to bring Hasan to trial for a murder where he was literally shot in the act of shooting people.

    Hasan Akbar, the engineer who fragged his own unit in the 1st Gulf War while they slept, killing two and wounding over a dozen more, is still on death row. We finished fighting the 1st Gulf War, then fought the 2nd Gulf War, (including the capture, conviction and hanging of Saddam Hussein), while Akbar’s case drifts through the court system.

    It is past time to bring these cases to a close.
    Mr. Trump, are you listening>

  14. Anonymous says:

    Hanging or firing squad, his choice. (Those were in effect at the time of his crime.)

  15. 5th/77th FA says:

    He should die, screaming, in extreme agony, just as his innocent victims did.

    Gut his murderous belly like a fish, pull his intestines out like a rope, tie him to the hog trough and let the pigs eat him alive. That way he will become the pig sh^t that he is, literally.

    Oh, and film the proceedings for rebroadcast on the All Arab Network.
