Fort Hood Hamas Boy, Maj. Nidal Hasan, Article 32 Hearings Began and Stalled Today

We will have to wait a while to figure out what these guys are doing. The Article 32 hearing, similar to a Grand Jury hearing, but both sides get to question witnesses, has been delayed for at least one month.

After President Obama and the rest of the upper chain-of-command did their best to tank this case before Palestinian-American Maj. Nidal Hasan was conscious, the prosecution probably has their hands full. It could have been a slam-dunk case without the 'help' of B. Hussein Obama.  An ardent follower of New Mexican imam, Anwar al-Awlaki, there is no question that MAJ Hasan entered a room full of soldiers, shouted "Allahu Akbar!" (الله أكبر, Arabic for "God is great!") and started shooting with two pistols.  The administration and upper echelons of the military immediately went directly into appeasement mode, bowing to the Liberal Media in attempts to show sensitivity to the Left and to the Islamists of the world.  The nation, including all ranks of the military, were cautioned not to retaliate, or create any other sort of "backlash", something our current society is famous for not doing.

The press went crazy trying to explain the terrorist behavior of MAJ Hasan as some sort of a "snap", even after the evidence flowed in that this jihadi sleeper was behaving in the same Islamic supremacist manner for decades in the Army.  Some offered the lame excuse that Hasan had been traumatized by war and that made him 'snap'. When it was revealed that he had never deployed, the theory that he 'snapped' at his upcoming deployment was broadcast far and wide. The subscribers to that theory did not appear to like the new name "pre-traumatic stress disorder" so they speculated some more, saying that Hasan counseled soldiers returning from war and that those horrors made him 'snap.' Thus the new term, "pre-traumatic stress disorder by proxy".

Palestinian-American Major Hasan
A Time/CNN article mentions, truthfully, that the Army is now taking steps to identify this behavior earlier to prevent incidents like this from happening in the future. One of those steps, in an unrelated case, has met with Leftist whining too. SPC Manning, of Wikileaks fame, was observed as having signs of instability. His weapon was disabled while he was in Iraq and the Left had a fit about that, saying that he was "defenseless" on his base. A quite laughable charge even from people who have never been close enough to a base for a protest, much less know how deep inside the wire an Intelligence Specialist works.  No, the problem is not spotting people acting like traitors or jihadists, the problem is with the politically correct responses that service members have been conditioned to make.  Hasan had been reported repeatedly and nothing was done about it. He continued with his subversion plans and took them to the point of murder.

The Associated Press: Defense seeks delay in Fort Hood shooting hearing:
"FORT HOOD, Texas — A military hearing to determine whether an Army psychiatrist should go to trial for a deadly shooting rampage at Fort Hood was abruptly adjourned Tuesday when defense attorneys asked for a nearly monthlong delay.

The start of the Article 32 hearing involving Maj. Nidal Hasan had been stalled for more than 2 1/2 hours because of what Col. James L. Pohl, a military judge acting as the investigating officer in the case, described as scheduling issues.

Shortly after it began, defense attorney Lt. Col. Kris Poppe asked that the proceeding be delayed until Nov. 8 and said attorneys needed a day to explain the request in writing. Pohl adjourned the hearing until Wednesday.

'We're not operating on a time limit or clock,' Pohl said. 'We've got to protect everybody's right. I've got to make a record.'

Hasan, 40, is charged with premeditated murder and attempted premeditated murder in the Nov. 5 attack, which killed 13 people and wounded 32 others. It was the worst mass shooting at an American military base."
