Hello from Fort Hood. I'm back at Club Hood this morning for day 16 of Maj. Nidal Hasan's trial. It is day two of his sentencing.
Yesterday's hearing went through 12 witnesses, who were all either family members of deceased victims of the Nov. 5, 2009, Fort Hood shooting or surviving victims. Approximately seven witnesses remain from the prosecution. The court recessed after the lunch break for logistical reasons that were never explained in open court. For jurors, the early end to the day was likely welcome. Though they were only in court for roughly four hours, they heard a marathon of heart breaking testimony from widows, mothers and other family members of slain victims. Full coverage of the emotional hearing can be found here.
