We wrapped up just before 5 p.m. Jury selection began officially, meaning this thing is a go.

So far, six jurors have been dismissed of the panel of 20 colonels, lieutenant colonels and majors brought in from across the nation based off their answers to a questionnaire form months ago. One of the officers also knew several of the potential witnesses and a retired soldier who died in the shooting, Michael Cahill.

Maj. Nidal Hasan did not ask any questions of the group, a phase of jury selection known as "general voir dire." Hasan also offered no resistance the the prosectutions' request to dismiss the six officers.

He reserved his right to question panel members individually tomorrow, but his lack of resistance is causing me to speculate that he may be waving the white flag. In working out scheduling, Hasan told the judge he could move through individual questioning at a faster rate than she expected. Hasan's jury selection expert, which the government has paid thousands for him to retain, was also conspicuously absent from the court.
