To the Editor:
The Maj. Nidal Hasan “one man band” spectacle continues to march at Fort Hood.
Now this murderer is going to be allowed to defend himself using “the defense of others” argument. What does that mean? Let’s say I shot and killed a guy who was going to kill my neighbor’s family. Then that defense would apply.
So, this guy will try and argue that he killed all those soldiers because they were going to Afghanistan to potentially kill his fellow Muslims. This defense, on its face, says he is going to try and turn this trial into some sort of political/religious show. I am surprised that this current judge is even entertaining this idea.
This has been going on for almost four years now and the Army continues to look more foolish every day. Meanwhile the folks that were wounded by him and the families of those who were killed continue to suffer with no justice.
