That’s Nidal Hasan’s actual defense strategy. And it makes the Workplace Violence claim put out there by Obama Inc. as credible as the airborne PTSD claims.

Hasan isn’t just claiming defense of Islam. He’s claiming defense of Islamic leadership, namely Al Qaeda leaders. It’s hard to turn that into anything but acting as part of an Islamic terrorist group, formally or informally.

The Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly 2009 Fort Hood shooting says he’ll show evidence at his trial that he opened fire because Islamic leadership was in imminent danger.

Maj. Nidal Hasan told the judge Tuesday that he needs a three-month delay to prepare to represent himself at trial. He faces the death penalty or life without parole if convicted of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder.

The judge, Col. Tara Osborn, said she had some questions about Hasan’s defense before she would rule on his delay request.

A “defense of others” strategy requires defendants to prove they killed a person or people to protect others from immediate danger. Many of the soldiers killed on the Texas Army post were preparing to deploy.

The families of soldiers murdered and wounded by Hasan have been arguing that they should have been awarded medals. The Obama Inc. argument has been that this was workplace violence and that treating it as an act of terror would undermine Hasan’s defense.

But now Hasan’s defense is that it was indeed an act of terror. There goes Obama Inc’s last excuse.

    Let me take a few swings with my 5-iron on this lowlife. What a worthless piece of garbage.

    How many times, how many ways, do Islamists have to tell us that they are murdering infidels for the sake of Allah? And how many times are westerners going to allow their leadership to remain deaf, dumb and blind to these truths?

    And one would think that Americans have had enough after Boston's urban jihad, or so one would believe – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/05/25/londons-islam

    the muslim has been giving a portion of his Army salary to President Stinky (BO) Benghazi in exchange for favors. As Stinky hisself said,
    ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us'.
    islam is important to Stinky, and the wounded / dead soldiers not so much.

    Step by step the muslim heritage of Obama comes to the fore.
    And the enemies show themselves. If Hassan thought the leadership of al qaida was in imminent danger and Obama works to keep him protected, then Obama seems only on step away from protecting the leaders of al qaida. And that’s even ignoring the way he gave them safe haven in Libya.

    this would fly about as far as a theoretical soldier opening fire on D-Day at his fellow soldiers in the Allied camp because Hitler was in imminent danger.

      “this would fly about as far as a theoretical soldier opening fire on D-Day at his fellow soldiers in the Allied camp because Hitler was in imminent danger.”

      This should fly about as far as a theoretical soldier opening fire on D-Day at his fellow soldiers in the Allied camp because Hitler was in imminent danger. But leftists will still defend him, and it goes without saying that Jihadis and undercover MB agents will too.

      0′Bama will remain silent unless the leftists are able to gain traction in building empathy…somehow.

      Who was that guy that went on a shooting rampage killing cops? What happened there? This guy was protecting the “noble people of Afghanistan” so who can blame him? What are you, some kind of nationalist right wing blood-drinking vampire?

      I told you all; it’s just a big misunderstanding and this noble man was following his religious convictions. And he’s Muslim so anything goes with religious convictions since they’re totalitarians. We have no right to judge them. They need more time to evolve.

    These are the literal definitions of terrorist and traitor.

    “The Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly 2009 Fort Hood shooting says he’ll show evidence at his trial that he opened fire because Islamic leadership was in imminent danger.”

    What need of a trial at this point? He confessed to everything we already suspected. Skip to the penalty phase and do it quickly.

    Then rectify the injustice perpetrated by the liars (by who?) on the victims.

    Make no mistake…according to the Koran, the “best” Muslims are those that fight for their allah while “bad” muslims who are considered “moderate”, “peaceful” and “not-muslim-enough” have no room in the muslim world because the Koran calls for their death as well!

    Islam IS what it IS.

    Nidal Hasan would have made his self proclaimed prophet called muhammad sooooooo proud!
