Fort Hood Terrorist’s Attorneys Working Overtime to Keep Him from Confessing to Terrorism


Nidal Hasan’s lawyers have a problem. The Fort Hood terrorist keeps confessing to being a terrorist, naming Islamic terrorism as his motive and doing everything possible to disprove the “Workplace Violence” tag stuck on him.

So his lawyers are trying to save him from himself. Or to save the narrative that has been painstakingly built up.

 The court-martial of Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the Army psychiatrist accused of carrying out the 2009 mass shootings at Fort Hood, was suspended Wednesday after a lawyer accused the defendant of deliberately trying to secure a death sentence….

Wednesday morning, one of [Hasan’s standby attorneys] Lt. Col. Kris Poppe, offered to step in and represent Hasan.

Poppe told military judge Col. Tara Osborn that it is “clear [Hasan’s] goal is to remove impediments or obstacles to the death penalty and is working toward a death penalty.” …

“I object. That’s a twist of the facts,” Hasan responded. He repeatedly asked the judge for permission to explain why Poppe’s claim was wrong, but refused to do so in writing.

Hasan is actually correct here. Poppe is twisting the facts. Hasan is trying to assert his motive, not trying to die. Death would be a side benefit, assuming he wants to die.

Al Qaeda terrorists routinely assert their Islamic motives. And lawyers and judges routinely try to stop them because it upends the entire liberal judicial process in which defendants pretend to be innocent and the system pretends Islam is a religion of peace.

There’s more at stake in the Fort Hood case because the military has gone out on a limb to claim that Islam is not the issue in order to make Muslims feel more comfy in the military. Now Nidal Hasan is ruining the PC party by reminding everyone that Islam and the military are incompatible.

That’s actually the theme of his defense and he couldn’t have found a sorer spot to strike.

    The most important part of this case, is the overriding imperitive that, “Obama can’t be dishonoured”. Period. A sick, repulsive and dangerous ideology hitches a ride on ,”workplace violence”. Islam’s promoters don’t miss a trick!

    It seems more likely that Holder is pressuring his lawyers to have him not directly admit something that he has already admitted by implication.

    He has already confessed to “treason against the United States” in his opening statement.

    A guy pulled a pistol in a crowd, yelled “allahu akbar” and proceeded to murder as many as he could, 14 souls, before they stopped him. He wittingly admits to the mass murder he is being tried for, explains why he did it, and why he’s proud of it, and the court trying him has a problem with this?
    Someone clue that court in. He’s pretty sure you don’t have the nerve to execute him, and he has nothing but contempt for the court and the our laws. From the court’s reaction, I’d have to say he has a point. Just imagine for a moment he said he did it in the name of Jesus, because he didn’t like the federal government, or anything else. Hasan is evil, but logical, and the court is being stupid.
