Nidal Malik Hasan who’s accused of screaming “Allahu Akbar” and gunning down fellow soldiers at Fort Hood is still waiting to be put on trial. The massacre happened more than three years ago. While there a lot of stupid criminals out there, not every criminal is stupid. The trial delay sends a message to other terrorists that they can hold our justice system at bay. That’s what Hasan is doing and our military justice system is going along with it.
There is no doubt that Hasan was the shooter on that fateful November in 2009. In addition, there’s ample evidence that Hasan was not some mentally disturbed soldier. He is a member in good standing in Allah’s army as this report from WND shows:
“Intelligence officials . . . intercepted at least 18 emails between Hasan and the radical American-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. Hasan told al-Awlaki in one of the emails, ‘I can’t wait to join you’ in paradise.’ He also asked al-Awlaki whether it was appropriate to kill innocents in a suicide attack, when jihad was acceptable and how to transfer funds without attracting government notice.
“In spite of this, Attorney General Eric Holder declined to press terrorism charges against Hasan. Instead the government has labeled the shooting as a case of ‘workplace violence.’ During a memorial service for the victims, President Obama never once used the word terrorism.”
What message does this send to other radical Muslims hell-bent on turning the United States into a Muslim stronghold? Don’t think that Obama’s foot-dragging on prosecuting Hasan hasn’t had an effect on what’s going on in Egypt.
Hasan should have been sent to “paradise” a long time ago.
Then there’s the murder of two firemen who had responded to a fire at a residence in Webster, New York. John Hoeffel and Matt Pearce, writing for the Los Angeles Times, report:
“Webster police identified the shooter Monday as William Spengler, 62, a neighborhood resident and an ex-convict, whom they later found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot to the head.
“It was not the first time Spengler had killed someone. On July 18, 1980, he beat his 92-year-old grandmother to death with a hammer. He pleaded guilty to manslaughter, served almost 18 years in prison, and returned after his release, unsettling the neighborhood.”
He beat his grandmother to death with a hammer, and he was released from prison! Why wasn’t Spengler executed? Consider that if Adam Lanza had not killed himself, he could not have been executed in Connecticut. On April 25, 2012, Gov. Dannel Malloy signed a bill into law that abolishes the death penalty signed a bill into law abolishing capital punishment.
A case can be made that governments are complicit in future murders for not dealing with past murders
