Coverup: Judge Bars Evidence of Nidal Hasan’s Islamic Terrorist Motivations

Nidal-Hasan_2636090k

Judge Tara Osborn was brought in because the original judge was a little too hard on Nidal Hasan, not letting him grow out his beard. Tara is supposed to be Hasan’s best buddy and she’s acting like it.

Too bad her efforts at maintaining the terrorist coverup is doomed because Nidal Hasan’s entire defense strategy is to talk about being an Islamic terrorist.

 Presentations that may have shown sympathy to Islamic extremism were ruled inadmissible Monday in Maj. Nidal Hasan’s Fort Hood, Texas, court-martial Monday.

Along with the e-mails and the material related to Akbar, Osborn also declined to allow the use of Hasan’s academic presentation on suicide bombings, saying “motive is not an element of the crime.”

Presiding Judge Col. Tara Osborn ruled the presentations Hasan made while in medical residency and in fellowship years before the shooting were too far removed from the actual incident to be considered.

“It is too remote in time and too open to multiple interpretations,” Osborn said of presentations Hasan made while at Walter Reed Military Medical Center in Washington, D.C.

Here’s the presentation. In it, Hasan argues that America is fighting against Muslims and that Muslim service members should be released from duty. His arguments parallel those he is making now.

Tara Osborn knows this, since she just heard him make those arguments. And tried to keep him from making them. Coverup? What coverup?

Motive is not an element of the crime. Because she doesn’t want to deal with the motive.

Osborn barred any reference Hasan Akbar, a Muslim soldier sentenced to death for attacking fellow soldiers in Kuwait during the 2003 Iraq invasion. Prosecutors wanted to prove Hasan’s attack was a “copycat,” but the judge said introducing such material would “only open the door to a mini-trial” of Akbar.

She also said such evidence would result in a “confusion of issues, unfair prejudice, waste of time and undo delay.”

The judge said prosecutors also couldn’t introduce three emails, ruling that the needed redactions would make them irrelevant. The contents of the emails were never disclosed, but the FBI has said Hasan sent numerous emails starting in December 2008 to Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical U.S.-born Islamic cleric killed by a drone strike in Yemen in 2011.

So she just struck emails that Hasan exchanged with a top Al Qaeda leader as irrelevant. An Al Qaeda leader who cultivated “lone wolf” attackers in the US.

But don’t worry. Nidal Hasan is making the case that Tara Osborn won’t let military prosecutors make.

The evidence will clearly show that I am the shooter,” said Hasan, who was shot by officers responding to the attack and is paralyzed from the waist down and confined to a wheelchair.

Hasan voiced his allegiance to the mujahideen – the name given to those waging holy war in Muslim countries. Hasan was scheduled to be deploy to Afghanistan the month of the shooting.

“Evidence will show I was on the wrong side of America’s war and I later switched sides,” Hasan said. “We in the mujahideen are imperfect beings trying to establish a perfect religion.”

“I don’t think what I did was wrong because it was for the greater cause of helping my Muslim brothers,” he told the military panel.

He denied having remorse and justified his actions by saying that the soldiers he killed were “going against the Islamic Empire.”

It’s a strange trial where the prosecution is not being allowed to do its job, while the defendant is doing their job for them. Welcome to PC America. No Islamic terrorism to see here.

  • Gee

    The Colonel wants to become a General. She has obstructed justice and should face a Courts Martial for her crimes.

    If the Major was so anti-America – why didn’t he resign his commission?

  • Veracious_one

    Presiding Judge Col. Tara Osborn ruled the presentations Hasan made
    while in medical residency and in fellowship years before the shooting
    were too far removed from the actual incident to be considered.

    they are directly related to Hasans Islamic outlook….

      This “judge” is doing Obama’s bidding.

      • JoeBotz

        I’d love to hear that Obama-Mugabe threw a major clot and fnnn died, the tyrant must go.

        • herb benty

          Yes, Obama must go, however, over the years commies took over the Dem Party, so the whole Democratic Party must go- at least the radicals….radical leftism is poison to a free nation.

    • Raymond_in_DC

      “It is too remote in time and too open to multiple interpretations,”

      Uh, isn’t it the job of the jury both to interpret the evidence and determine its relevance?

  • ejp

    Terrorist “coverup”? What’s this? Frontpagemag pushing *conspiracy*? Send in Ron Radosh to denounce Daniel Greenfield as being McCarthy on Steroids!!!! (Sarcasm mode now off)

    • herb benty

      Obama NEEDS Hasan to flagrantly make the American justice system seem like a bad joke, encouraging others to commit similar acts. The left LOVES chaos and confusion, thats where they can really get things done. So called “judge”…….”motive is not an element of the crime”???!! The contortions this military court is going through to avoid tainting Islam is way past ridiculous.

    • jma

      Good one! (Sarc NOT off)

    This will eventually blow up in the traitor’s faces.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Uhm…did I miss it? Exactly where is it that Nidal Hasan admitted he was a terrorist? He admitted that he was a mujahideen, i.e., a holy fighter that was fighting jihad in the cause of Allah in defense of the Islamic empire. In any event, the only people that mislabel jihadists as being terrorists are clueless infidels that don’t know any better. Indeed, what’s really PC is insisting on conflating what really is an exclusive Islamic manifestation, that is jihad, or holy fighting in the cause of Allah, as somehow being terrorism, even though the two manifestations are completely different and very distinct in many ways. For instance, in stark contrast to terrorism, jihad is holy fighting in the cause of Allah for the expansion of Islam and is waged exclusively by Muslims alone, while, terrorism, on the other hand, is perpetrated for a myriad of different political causes and reasons, and by people of all societies and cultures. Furthermore, in stark contrast to terrorism, which is always and only violent, jihad, on the other hand, is both violent and non-violent, but overall astronomically far more non-violent relative to violent. As a matter of fact, Islam is primarily waging a Cold Jihad, as like the Cold War before, it manifest non-violently and for the most part clandestinely via stealth and deception, but you would never know it if all you read was this writer, since according to him if it isn’t terrorism, i.e., violent, it isn’t something to oppose.

    • herb benty

      You aren’t getting any more well, are you. We in the West oppose violent jihad and clandestine jihad, in the end, they are the same. Muslims are commanded to take over the world, by any means. We OPPOSE Islam, or is that too fast for you. The Russians in the Cold War weren’t blowing up Americans IN America….twit.

      • ObamaYoMoma

        The Russians in the Cold War weren’t blowing up Americans IN America….twit.

        Wow…did you figure that out all on your own genius? I’m impressed. And that’s because our politicians and elites at the time weren’t insane enough to let them infiltrate the country in mass the same way our politicians and elites are doing today with respect to Muslims, as mass Muslim immigration to the West isn’t terrorism. Instead, its stealth and deceptive jihad for the nefarious purpose of stealth demographic conquest and the occasional violent jihad attacks. And if I’m wrong, then by all means please cite where it is in the West where Muslims are actually assimilating and integrating, instead of like clockwork forming Muslim enclaves that eventually morph into Islamic no-go zones.

        • herb benty

          Your dissembling is showing sonny. Islam is not compatible with the Western way of life. Mass muslim immigration is a precursor to jihad, when muslims get the right numbers, the bombings,rapes,knifings, shootings begin in earnest. I agree with some of your words, however, to say mass muslim immigration isn’t part of the problem is pure BS.

            What? Are you dense or something? No one claimed that Islam is compatible with the West, as the sole fundamental purpose of Islam is the subjugation of all religions and all infidels through jihad and the eventual imposition of Sharia, which is Islamic totalitarian law. Thus, mass Muslim immigration isn’t a precursor to jihad, it’s a precursor to demographic conquest, as it is stealth and deceptive jihad, as Muslims never ever migrate to the West to assimilate and integrate, but instead to dominate and subjugate.

            I agree with some of your words, however, to say mass muslim immigration isn’t part of the problem is pure BS.

            Apparently, you either have very serious eye problems or otherwise suffer from severe senility, as I have never ever claimed that Muslim immigration, which in reality is stealth and deceptive jihad for the nefarious purpose of stealth demographic conquest, isn’t a problem. In fact, no one here other than me more redundantly advocates ad nauseum that mass Muslim immigration along with all of its excess baggage must be banned and reversed ASAP. Now if you want to righteously excoriate someone who totally ignores mass Muslim immigration for demographic conquest because he doesn’t construe it as being terrorism, since it isn’t violent, then jump on the writer you are defending and leave me the hell out of it.

            Hasan, yelling A A, killing 13 Americans is a terrorist. Goodbye.

    • Northstar

      Terrorism is a form of Jihad.
      Stop trolling already.

      Fuck you and your pedophile prophet!

      • ObamaYoMoma

        You must have flunked reading comprehension skills in junior high when you flunked out of school. Meanwhile, my posts are always being reviewed and deep sixed by the admins, but your post, on the other hand, is perfectly fine with the admins. Can we say double standard. Okay, I said it.

        • wa2pu

          Again, Fuck you. It is not a double standard having the ability to recognize a terrorist for what he is…if anything the admins are guilty of patriotism and justice. Now I am sensing a lot of pent up sexual frustration here, maybe you should hit one of your favorite nightclubs or bars…ooops I bet your probation does not allow you anywhere near a Chucky Cheese or Elementary School does it. I bet this is a great relief to many a 7 year old girl…or boy.

  • NJK

    I hope this moron acting as a judge is at ground zero of the next attack. Maybe then she’ll get it through her thick skull. He’s telling her it was an act of Jihad, and she won’t believe it. This woman along with many others in our military should be court martialed.

    • BS77

      Had this been back in WW II, Mr. Hasan would have been quickly tried and hanged. Eng of story.

      • Chad3434

        Remember General Black Jack Pershing? This is how he dealt with terrorist. He caught seven. He dug six holes. He shot six and then dumped hog guts on top of them and covered them up. He let number seven go. That is called a quick fix. Number seven spread the word around and Pershing had no more trouble from terrorist.

    Tara is being unusually cruel by blocking Hasan’s testimony and delaying Hasan from getting to his virgins. If she’d just let him say what he wanted to say he might be able to get to paradise now instead of living with paralysis. On a serious note the rule that allows judges to block jurors from getting information by disallowing evidence is wrong. It gives judges too much power to change the outcome of the case based on their biases. It is unconstitutional. It violates the freedom of speech of the parties involved. This isn’t just true in Hasan’s case there is widespread abuse of this unconstitutional judicial power.

  • CowboyUp

    ““Evidence will show I was on the wrong side of America’s war and I later switched sides,” Hasan said.”
    Hasan switched sides but didn’t switch uniforms, so he just admitted to treason in open court. Crickets…

  • tickletik

    “Tara” Osborn? You mean we put a woman as the judge in a military trial over a Muslim sleeper agent?

    Oh this is just too rich. You arrogant silly people. You are going to learn such a painful painful lesson about real life. Assuming any of us survive the lesson.

  • CowboyUp

    I thought showing motive was a critical element of any case, even if the crime was committed just to relieve boredom.
    This is especially interesting, because the left/msm/dp often considers motive more important than the crime itself, when it suits their purposes. Hate crimes come to mind, but it’s much deeper and wider than that. They rail against self interest and greed, extol altruism (for others, of course), and excuse their own failures, disasters, and evil acts, by claiming pure motives.
    The trial is becoming such a farce that it’s becoming hard to believe Obama’s lackeys aren’t somehow involved.

  • Chad3434

    You ask one of our not fit for anything politicians how we can defend our selves against the lone wold terrorist attacks and they say, “duh I don’t know, we can’t”.
    I beg to differ with them. If we could get rid of these liberal anti gun people and promote the idea that every able body person start packing then we could end the long wolf in short order. I frequent a restaurant in my home town for breakfast each morning. A lot of the good old boys hang out there, Let some rag head with a shaggy beard step into that place and scream out “Allahu Akbar”. It would take two weeks to just clear the smoke and shell casings from that place.
