        @ Rambo is a professor at San Francisco Theological Seminary specializing in religious conversions.

        No matter how knowledgeable Rambo may be about religious conversions - Is that still going to explain way, a convert wanting to kill his fellow citizens Because of that conversion ? The killings and the conversion would have absolutely nothing to do with each other.
        ---------------

        @ Belton attorney John Galligan, who is representing Hasan in a civil matter, said Hasan has no incentive to testify.
        “Based on the rulings of the judge, I wouldn’t be surprised if he doesn’t present anything at all,” Galligan said. “What’s the point?”
        --------------

        It sounds like Galligan continues to want to put the blame for the crime Hasan has committed , on anyone other then the guilty party, Hasan himself.

        No one on the side of justice,has done any wrong concerning this case. The rules that usually wouldn't pertain to other defendants on such a charge , have been applied to this case of a cold blooded killer, who is proud of the work he did on Nov. 5 2009.
        He had his victims cornered, he knew they had no defense, he sit them up. They were like the fish in a barrel .

        What Hasan considers a slaughter of honor in the name of those he has stated he was loyal to, an enemy of the country he had used to live in, and become fairly successful off of. Sounds more like the act of a coward.
